A new student arrives at South Park Elementary when his father comes into town on business. In this case, however, Dad is the Dark Lord Satan himself and the child is his son, Damien.

All seems hopeless for him until he gets some helpful advice on making friends from Pip. Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <>

Did You Know?


Although Jesus had been introduced as a character in previous episodes, this marked the first time he interacted with the main characters outside of his public access talk show, Jesus and Pals. Trey Parker said many viewers thought the character was a crazy person who falsely believed he was Jesus, and he and Stone wanted to show in this episode that he was supposed to be the actual Jesus.

The kids are supposed to get Cartman different colored Mega Man toys - Red, Green, and Yellow. When they finally give him the presents, he gets a blue one instead of a green one. See more »


Pip: Oh Eric, I didn't get an invitation.
Eric Cartman: Hmm, what could I have done with Pip's invitation? Pip's invitation... Pip's invitation... Oh, I remember. I shoved it up my ass. That's right. I wrote it up, put in an envelope, sealed it, and
Eric Cartman: shoved it right up my ass, forever ruining any chance of you coming to my birthday party. Sorry, Pip ol' chap.

Young Blades Bite Deep
9 November 2009 | by (Troy, NY) – See all my reviews

Early on, the South Park boys counted on highly-familiar characters, yanked whole cloth out of classic films. In this episode, Damien from the OMEN is the new kid in school, and uses his Satanic powers to get acceptance and fit in with the other kids.

Look beneath the surface, and you see a lot of grim truth about childhood in this early episode. Damien is only accepted by the gang after he begins to slap Pip around. Pip is a good kid who genuinely wants to belong, but the adults in the community don't care what happens to him or how he feels inside. Every time he gets picked on, Mr. Mackey tells him, "just take it . . . m'kay? Just be totally passive." My father was just the same way, and I'm glad someone finally told the truth about how so-called "mature" adults can stab kids in the back just by looking the other way.

Meanwhile, Damien's dad Satan is in town, challenging Jesus to a WWF style smack-down. The most interesting thing about this plot is the way Satan seems to have seen both EIGHT MEN OUT and ON THE WATERFRONT. But when the betting starts he comes out way ahead of Terry Malloy and the Black Sox . . . and that's because it's good to be the Prince (of darkness.) Good early episode, overall. A little crude, with a herky-jerky feel of two plots cobbled together. But the revolution had clearly begun . . . a case of young blades biting deep!
