Storyline

A new family moves in to South Park, calling themselves The Jeffersons. It really is Michael Jackson with his son escaping from the earlier Hollywood lifestyle. Stan, Cartman, Kenny and Kyle are invited over to play, but everyone but Cartman soon becomes suspicious of Mr. Jefferson's childlike behavior. At this point, Mr. Jefferson has become Cartman's best friend. The cops are soon involved, but withdraw their attention when they see that Mr. Jefferson is white and therefore there is no need to frame him. Written by Jonas Nilsson

Quotes

Sgt. Harrison Yates: [about Michael Jefferson] He doesn't really look that black.
Sgt. Snetzl: Yeah, I know... Hold on a second, there was one we framed a couple of times. But the black bastard was so rich he made bail and disappeared before the trial.

Sgt. Harrison Yates: Molestation, nice.
Sgt. Snetzl: Yeah, it was a lot of work. Took years. But we were finally able to arrest him. Then we ...

One of the funniest episodes
1 July 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I love this episode because it is not only funny but also has some heart to it. Instead of easily making fun of Michael Jackson as a child molester, it critiques his parenting style and empathizes with his child and the neglect from MJ constantly trying to re-live his own lost childhood. As always in South Park, there are some good songs in this episode such as "Wishing Tree" and I laugh out loud every time I see it. They definitely poke fun at MJ with his plastic surgery and singing style but at the end you sort of feel sorry for him. I felt that the creators were siding with him in the end. This episode definitely ranks up there in my book.
