Cartman begins to wonder why all the kids at school have fathers but him. When he asks his mother who his real father is, she tells him about the night of the drunken barn dance, when he was conceived. Unfortunately, Mrs. Cartman had sex with just about every man in town that night. Dr. Mephisto can perform a DNA test to determine who the father really is, but the test costs $3,000. How can Eric raise the money to learn the truth? Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <>

This episode is Hilarious!!!
18 November 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This is with out a doubt one of the funniest episodes ever. In a desperate search for his father, Cartman ask his mom where he met his father, with her responding at a dance then she says made out with an chief saying that was his father, but it turns out it was not and it was chef that she made out with and then chef denies saying that he is Cartmans father and the Dr say he can do a experiment to find out who his father is for a price of $3,000. As the rest boys of the are about send in record of a film of Cartman have a tea party with his stuffed animals into a TV show videos to win a prize of $10,000. This is in instant classic episode! Which is a must see! 10/10
