The psychic boy and his ghost pal
27 November 2008 | by (Mexico City) – See all my reviews

You can hear from Trey Parker and Matt Stone and from South Park fans that the Cartman and Butters episodes usually deliver lots of fun, I'm a big South Park fan and this time you will read here that this Cartman and Butters episode is totally awesome I mean is totally AWESOM-O and I think this will rank in the 5 favourites episodes from Season 9.

On the commentary track Trey and Matt explains that they had the idea of Cartman doing something really horrible and then all the boys ignoring him because of that but Trey and Matt could not imagine what would be that horrible thing that Cartman did since basically Scott Tenorman ate his parents because of Cartman (in one of the very best South Parks of all time). Certainly the horrible thing that Cartman does in this episode can't be compared to that from Scott Tenorman Must Die but certainly we have here a great opening scene. We see the four boys waiting for a nice dinner, Stan's mom will bring them Kentucky F. "Chicken", Cartman will be alone with the chicken and you can imagine the rest, was disgusting! Kenny cried and certainly for the boys this time Cartman went to far, now they ignore the fat and racist kid. So we have our Cartman and Butters show, as I guess you already know Cartman will think he's dead so he feels sorry for all the persons who were close to him and is great since he feels very sad for Stan, Kyle and Kenny since they don't know yet that one of their very best friends is now gone! Certainly every other kid hated Cartman then everybody is ignoring him, everybody but Butters who will be like the kid from The Sixth Sense! Simply this is hilarious stuff (the scene of the hostage situation is awesome! The psychic boy and his ghost pal were "armed only with the weapon of confusion") and we also see Scott Tenorman, Sally Struthers between others since now Cartman is "repairing" everything to finally rest in peace in Heaven and get $10,000 in cash. This episode is a must-see, of course it works like a resume of who is Cartman and who is Butters and of course you should watch it as fast as you can! Poor Butters once again! 9.5 out of 10
