Storyline

Cartman is spending Christmas at his grandparents' house, and the rest of the guys are invited. When Stan asks his parents for permission, however, they refuse. Angry and thinking his parents don't care about him, Stan sneaks off to go with his friends anyway. Soon after arriving, Cartman's Uncle Howard shows up, having broken out of prison with his cell-mate, Charles Manson. Wanting to have some fun, Manson offers to take the boys to the shopping mall so they can meet Mr. Hankey. Following a riot, a police chase and several holiday TV specials, Manson learns the true meaning of Christmas and Stan learns his parents really do care.

Trivia

All the Cartmans talk the way Eric Cartman does (e.g. "authoritah", "myah" instead of "here") implying he inherited it from his family. Elvin Cartman sounds nearly exactly like Eric, only his voice is higher pitched and childish. Only the men in the family seem to have this vocal inflection. See more »

Goofs

A book written by Charlie Manson is attributed to "Charles W. Manson". Manson's middle name was Milles. However, according to prosecutor Vincent Bugliosi's book "Helter Skelter", Manson unofficially changed his middle name to Willes, so if said slowly his name would sound like "Charles' Will is Man's Son".

Quotes

Grandma: I thought that shirt would look really good on you.
Cartman: Are you telling me I drove nine hours through buttfucking nowhere to get a goddamn shirt? Mom, Grandma's gone senile, time to stick her in a home.

Hilarious! Another great Christmas episode!
25 December 2008 | by See all my reviews

Merry Christmas Charlie Manson is the season 2 Christmas episode of South Park.In my opinion, this one was a bit better than the previous Christmas episode.This one is simply hilarious! Cartman & friends go with his mom to Nebraska to see Cartman's family.Stan's parents didn't want him to go but he sneaks out anyway and is angry with his parents and claims that they are dead! Cartman's family members share some of the same characteristics as Cartman.They are all fat and yell at their animals when the animals ask for food.Meanwhile, Cartman's uncle escapes prison with his cellmate Charlie Manson.The boys find that Mr Hankey(who is now famous) is appearing at the mall so the boys go see him, they then realize that he is a fake mr hankey and start a riot.The cops eventually find Manson and follow him back to the Cartman house where a standoff ensues.In the midst of all the chaos, Manson finds the true meaning of Christmas! This is a very good episode and has some hilarious moments!
