Storyline

Cartman wins an environmentalism essay contest, and the prize is going to be awarded by none other than Kathy Lee Gifford. While most of the town is overjoyed, Mr. Garrison is still haunted by the memory of losing a child talent contest to Kathy, and vows to get revenge. Meanwhile, Wendy, angry over losing the essay contest and suspecting Cartman of cheating, starts doing some plotting of her own. Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

Beefcake!!!! BEEFCAKE!!!!!!!!!!!!
25 July 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

The second episode of South Park to be released! This episode is evolved around Mr Garrison (being an asshole as usual) plotting revenge on a fictional version of Kathie Lee Gifford who won the talent show competition years ago! Meanwhile, with a fact that was not forgotten from the previous/very first episode "Cartman Gets An Anal Probe", Cartman is very fat and obnoxious and being the very stupid fat bastard that he is, he forgets what "Weight Gain 4000" means! The next day while rehearsing the welcome play for Kathie Lee Gifford at school, Cartman gets fatter and fatter! This was a great episode, even though, I have seen even funnier ones. Will Cartman be famous enough to be on TV?! Find out in this classic episode! (Oh Yeah, did I mention that Kenny dies again?!) This is a must see, if you have not seen this episode before!

Overall Rating: 8/10!
