At night around the campfire, Cartman tells the boys the story of Scuzzlebutt, a mysterious monster with Patrick Duffy for a leg. Of course Scuzzlebutt is just a legend, isn't he?

Did You Know?


Comedy Central executives did not object to most of the content of the episode, but said the scene in which Kyle farted while talking to Stan should have been removed because nothing happened after the fart, and they said it was not funny. Trey Parker and Matt Stone, however, insisted it stay in the episode, and they said the lack of any reaction whatsoever to the fart was what made it funny. See more »


Scuzzlebutt's size changes in a few minutes. At first, he only slightly taller than a human. When he saves Jimbo and the others, he is way taller than that. Not much later, when the mayor thanks him, he is back to human-size again. See more »

A Great Episode, And I Agree With The 8/10 Rating!
25 July 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This is Trey Parker And Matt Stone's third episode of The South Park Series, and what a great episode it was too! The story evolves around Stan, Kyle, Eric And Kenny going on a hunting trip with Stan's Uncle Jimbo, and his very close friend Ned and when realising that The Volcano is about to erupt and A Scuzzlebutt is on the loose, it is up to someone (Or Something) to save the day! If you are sensitive on innocent animals being massacred and them being blown up and/or if you are not A South Park Fan, then, this is not for you! This is definitely a must see for South Park Fans alike, please do give it a go if you have not seen it yet!

Overall Rating: 8/10!
