While Cartman and Sally the Hutt talk, the men at the helm are either Marklar (when the camera is behind them) or something else (when the camera is before them). See more »


Kyle Broflovski: Wait, wait. I think I can explain this whole thing. Marklar, these Marklars want to change your Marklar. They don't want this Marklar or any of his Marklars to live here because it's bad for their Marklar. They use Marklar to try and force Marklars to believe their Marklar. If you let them stay here, they will build Marklars and Marklars. They will take all of your Marklars and replace them with Marklars. These Marklars have no good Marklars to live on Marklars so they must come here to Marklar...

Very good episode
2 November 2008 | by (Canada(Montreal,Quebec)) – See all my reviews

Starvin Marvin in space marks the second appearance of Starvin Marvin and Sally Struthers, who were both introduced in the season 1 episode "Starvin Marvin".In this episode, Sally Struthers looks like Jabba The Hutt.An alien from the planet "Marklar" comes to earth, only to be eaten by lions in Ethiopia.Marvin is sick of all the missionaries making them learn Christianity, so he steals the spaceship and goes on an adventure.The government wants the spaceship so they go to South Park and ask the boys where Marvin is during an interrogation.They tell him that Sally Struthers should know and go off to watch TV.Marvin then comes crashing in and takes them on an adventure to the planet Marklar.Marvin wants to bring his people to that planet, where there are no missionaries.But the missionaries, Sally Struthers and the government are trying to stop them! This is an interesting, entertaining and good South Park episode.
