Cartman intends to drive the hippies away by playing 'Raining Blood' by Slayer, reasoning that hippies can't stand Death Metal. Actually, Slayer play Thrash Metal. See more »


Eric Cartman: Hello, ma'am. I'm working to clean up the neighborhood from parasites. Do you mind if I take a quick look around your house? I'm afraid you may have hippies.
Elderly Woman: Hippies?
Eric Cartman: Yeah, they've been poppin' up all over the neighborhood lately. Ms. Nelson next door had seven hippies in her basement; they usually live in colonies. Hm, I don't like the sound of that. Could I take a look in your attic?

Cartman's a hero
25 November 2008 | by (Mexico City) – See all my reviews

Originally aired on 16 March 2005 this episode is such a great one, hilarious and fair. This time Stan, Kyle and Kenny are hippies (Kyle wears a Che Guevara t-shirt by the way), they are kids so they can be interested in the words of an adult who sees to know everything about the world but for sure kids are not fools. Once they see everything with their own eyes they realize about the fact that hippies are just there to listen to music for days and smoke pot 24 hours peer day so the kids will have in mind the following question: how can the hippies can be changing the world if they are only listening to music and smoking pot? So certainly Stan, Kyle and Kenny will end hating the dirty hippies but certainly not as much as Cartman, I think that is almost impossible! Cartman is just great here, he know everything about dirty hippies, he knows the different types of hippies and he locked a bunch of them in his basement so he ended in jail but unfortunately for the citizens of South Park Cartman was totally right but fortunately Cartman could get the necessary for his plan and in the end Raining Blood by Slayer saved South Park of the hippies! Definitely Cartman was a true hero and Kyle will suffer a little.

Watch this great episode and check the bizarre situation with the mayor and the quantity of hippies that were in South Park after a short period of time!

Something from Trey and Matt's mini commentary: Matt and Trey meet Boulder, Colorado where they went to school and there they learned to hate hippies. Matt also says that they know hippies talk and that he knows hippies better than they know themselves!
