Storyline

Every year for Thanksgiving, the fourth grade puts on a production of The Miracle Worker. This year, however, they face stiff competition from the kindergarteners, who are putting on a highly professional show with pyrotechnics and musical numbers. Desperate not to be shown up, Cartman decides to turn the show into a massive musical production finishing with a stunt turkey leaping through a ring of fire. Unfortunately, Timmy (who is playing Helen Keller), has adopted a hopelessly untalented turkey as his pet and refuses to let it be replaced. Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

Decent episode with one of the most disturbing scenes on south park
23 November 2008 | by (Canada(Montreal,Quebec)) – See all my reviews

Helen Keller the musical is a mediocre episode of south park.It had a few laughs but overall I did not like it as much as the others.The plot involves the 4th grade students putting on a play about Helen Keller.However, a rumor is that the kindergartens have an awesome play! So the boys decide to make it better.SInce it's thanksgiving, they decide that Helen should have a pet turkey.Timmy plays Helen Keller.When they go pick out the turkey, Timmy wants the retarded turkey.They decide to bring in this very good turkey who will not work with others, so the man who owns the turkey lies to Timmy and tells him that people want to take it away.Timmy sends it off but finds out later that he lied, so he sets off to retrieve the turkey.It was a decent episode but the episodes are usually better.A very disturbing scene in this one is when Cartman puts on a blindfold and we see his very disturbing visions(in a spoof of Clockwork Orange).
