The Death Of Eric Cartman
3 February 2009 | by (Canada(Montreal,Quebec)) – See all my reviews

Death Of Eric Cartman has a fairly cool storyline.Cartman eats all the KFC chicken skin before the other boys can and they are then very angry at him for doing it.They decide to ignore him and not be his friend anymore.After Cartman sees that his friends are not talking to him(neither is anyone else because the boys told them not too), he thinks he is dead but needs to do something to get into heaven.The boys did not tell Butters to ignore him so Butters says hi to him.Cartman then thinks that Butters is the only person who can see him, so he asks Butters to help him ascend into heaven.They try many things such as apologizing and giving presents to the people he has wronged, however that does not do it.Meanwhile, Butters's parents think he is crazy and make him go to a psychiatry ward.Cartman busts him out and they see a news story where three escaped cons are holding hostages, Cartman and Butters think that saving them is the only way that they will get into heaven.Death Of Eric Cartman has an interesting storyline and is also very funny at parts.
