Storyline

A heinous crime has been committed in South Park: the chickens at a local farm have been molested by a pervert. The criminal leaves a note behind as a clue, forcing Officer Barbrady to admit his shameful secret: he's illiterate. The Mayor sends Barbrady back to elementary school to learn how to read before he can return to work. Desperate to stop the Chicken Lover before he strikes again, Barbrady enlists the help of the boys in piecing together the mystery. Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

Trivia

Originally, Cartman was supposed to receive a gun (instead of a nightstick) and shoot at people (instead of beating them) during his stint as a deputy police officer, but Comedy Central's censors were reluctant in showing a child with a firearm (despite airing South Park: Volcano (1997) with no qualms).

Cartman as a police officer!
3 October 2008 | by (Canada(Montreal,Quebec)) – See all my reviews

ChickenLover is a very funny South Park episode which features Cartman as a police officer and the first time he says "Respect My Authoritah".There is a man going around having sex with chickens.He leaves clues to where he will hit next, but Officer Barbrady cannot read.He quits and South Park goes into total chaos.The mayor sends Barbrady back to school so he can learn to read but school does not help him much.So the boys decide to teach him how to read the clues and the books needed to catch the chickenf****r(or chickenlover).Meanwhile, Cartman fills in for Barbrady and catches criminals! ChickenLover is a funny and good South Park episode!
