The boys get recruited to join a choir group performing in Costa Rica to help save the rainforest. The choir leader, Miss Stevens, wants to teach everyone how wonder the rainforest is, and leads the group on a nature tour, only to get hopelessly lost in the wilderness where they fall victim to wild animals, quicksand, violent natives and rebel troops. Only Cartman, who sneaks away after getting fed up with Miss Stevens' love of nature, can save his classmates. Written by

Oh my God, it smells like ass out here.
All right, that does it. Eric Cartman, you respect other cultures this instant.

You may think that making fun of third-world countries is funny but let me...
I don't think it's funny. This place is overcrowded, smelly and poor. That's not funny, that sucks.
