Storyline

Jimbo and Ned decide to take the boys out into the woods for their first deer hunting trip. While Kenny, Cartman and especially Kyle take to the bonding experience, Stan can't bring himself use a gun, earning Uncle Jimbo's disapproval. 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?

Trivia

Matt Stone claimed there was no particular reason why Patrick Duffy was chosen as the leg of Scuzzlebutt, except that he is such a nondescript actor: "He's just super bland. Like, how could you possibly be a fan of Patrick Duffy?" See more »

Quotes

Stan Marsh: My Uncle Jimbo says we gotta get up there early. Right Uncle Jimbo?
Jimbo: That's right, Stanley. Animals are much easier to shoot in the morning.

Not as good as first two episodes but still pretty good
21 September 2008 | by (Canada(Montreal,Quebec)) – See all my reviews

Volcano is an alright episode of South Park.I liked it, it was pretty funny, but I preferred the previous episodes.Actually, there are very very few episodes of South Park that I did not really like.This episode has the boys going hunting with Stan's uncle Jimbo and his army buddy Ned.Since there are a lot of laws against hunting Jimbo states that the animal is "coming right for us" before shooting it.Stan, however cannot shoot animals and Jimbo calls him a pansy.He takes a shine to Kenny who enjoys hunting and Stan is jealous.Meanwhile, a volcano is about to erupt where the boys are, and the townspeople must save them.A funny thing is, this episode marks the debut of Randy who is Stan's dad, however this is not mentioned in the show.There are some very funny parts in this episode but I preferred the first two episodes just by a little bit.They were more entertaining in my opinion.
