Cartmanland is a fairly good South Park episode.I find it to be funnier than it usually is, yet it is also a pretty depressing episode as the subplot features Kyle dying of hemorrhoids.Cartman inherits a million dollars from his dead grandmother.He chooses to spend it all on a theme park that only he is able to go in.This is because he hates lines.However he sees that the amusement park needs maintenance and stuff, so he must let in a few people at a time in order to hire security guards and maintenance people.He finds that he has to hire so many people that he must let everybody in, ruining his original vision of the theme park.Meanwhile, Kyle gets hemorrhoids and is angry that god let Cartman have a million dollars while Kyle is suffering.He denounces his faith and is dying, so it is up to Stan to show Kyle that there is a god.The episode has some funny moments and some sad moments.Overall a good episode.

I think Season 5 is one of the very best South Park Seasons and certainly Cartmanland is one of the many reasons. I sort of always write the same for South Park episodes and damn here I go again with stuff about what Trey and Matt says in their DVD commentary mini. Basically we have both saying that this is a fine example of a simple idea done right, they had the idea of having Cartman inheriting $1,000,000 and buying his own amusement park but they were like "no, that's cliché, is basic" but as usual the date of airing a new show was almost there so they decided to work on that idea. Eventually with the basic idea they had more room to be just funny, to be original and they put Pixar as the ones that do that simply perfectly.

Anyway, his grandmother dies so Eric inherits $1,000,000 since grandma Cartman knew that the rest of the Cartmans would spend the money in crack. So for Eric a dream is finally true and soon another dream will be also true, the dream of having his own amusement park! At one point Eric is seen as a true genius, he is called the financial genius of our time! Why? Well simply because he transformed an almost abandoned theme park into an extremely successful one and now his "technique" is now the one to follow for any other business. But even with a really successful business Cartman is just unhappy, after all he just wanted his theme park only for his use, no one was allowed (especially Stan and Kyle, this last one who will lost his faith when the as***** Cartman sees his dreams comes true and he gets a hemorrhoid. Is a really bad time for Kyle but…) but at one point the park needed security, later maintenance and certainly many other services so Cartman will need money to hire people because to his surprise you can't pay to a security guard with free rides! By when Cartman needed to allow thousands of people to cover the expenses thousands of people were more than ready to finally enter in the theme park again! Is fantastic stuff! See the consequences that Cartman has for Kenny's death since Kenny died inside Cartmanland! And how Kyle's parents try to bring the faith to Kyle again with the story of Job ("why would God do such horrible things to a good person just to prove a point to Satan?" "Job has all his children killed and Michael Bay gets to keep making movies, there isn't a God").
