Did You Know?


The episode was to conclude with the first episode of the second season, on April 1 1998, four weeks after "Cartman's Mom is a Dirty Slut" was first broadcast. However, instead Trey Parker and Matt Stone made an episode about Terrance and Philip, as an April Fool's Day prank on viewers. Upset fans wrote more than 2000 angry e-mail complaints to Comedy Central within a week of the episode's original broadcast, and media outlets said some fans harbored a grudge against the show more than five years after the episode was broadcast. "Cartman's Mom Is Still a Dirty Slut", the second part of the episode, was originally set to air on May 20 1998, but due to the angry feedback Comedy Central moved up the airdate to April 22 1998.

At the end when the question is proposed as to who Cartman's dad is, Mephesto refers to the Denver Broncos as the 1989 Denver Broncos. Just seconds later, the narrator refers to them as the 1991 Denver Broncos. See more »

Part One Of An Exciting Two Parter!
29 July 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Cartman's Mom Is A Dirty Slut was the very first episode that was a two parted episode which Trey Parker And Matt Stone made. The plot evolves around Cartman who asks his Mom who his father is. The South Park Gang go on a quest to find out who Eric Cartman's Father is and finding out information about The Drunken Barn Dance that happened on the exactly same night as Cartman's Mother's pregnancy. It is a great episode which ends the season on a cliffhanger and The Terrance And Phillip In Not Without My Anus episode premiers at the beginning of Season Two! If you are a South Park Fan and you have not seen it yet, please watch it! You will not be disappointed!

Overall Rating: 8/10!

Overall Rating For South Park Season One: 17/20!
