Storyline

Stan is upset that his dog Sparky is, by all appearances, gay. After repeated attempts to change Sparky's ways, Stan cries out, "I don't want a gay dog!" causing Sparky to run away. When Stan goes looking for him, he encounters Big Gay Al and his sanctuary for gay pets. Big Gay Al helps show Stan that gay people are just like everyone else and that being gay isn't something that can just be changed. Meanwhile, the South Park football team is facing North Park for the annual game, and everyone is depending on quarterback Stan to help the team beat the spread. Will Stan make it back from Al's in time? Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

Funny and has a good moral
14 March 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I think the episode shows a good but yet comical side of being gay because at first we see Stan upset about his dog being gay, but as the episode moves forward he starts learning to accept his dog as being gay. This episode also makes fun of the hatred of people who are against homosexuals. One of the funniest and meaning parts of the episode is the end of the boat ride where we see a little parody of the Disneyland ride "It's a Small World" of gay robot dolls singing that it's alright to be gay. This episode didn't really make me laugh my ass off, but it still has a good a moral, a couple of good jokes and an Emmy Nomination.
