The boys interview Uncle Jimbo and Ned for a school report about the Vietnam War. The pair's story, however, is so unbelievable that Mr. Garrison gives the boys an F. To get back at them, the boys fake a video of the dangerous Mexican Staring Frog of Southern Sri Lanka and send it in to Jimbo and Ned's public access TV program. The two hunters fall for it and are soon out hunting for the frog themselves. Meanwhile, the popularity of Jimbo and Ned's program is drawing the attention of other players in the public access market. Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <>

Funny episode
6 October 2008 | by (Canada(Montreal,Quebec)) – See all my reviews

Mexican Staring Frog Of Southern Sri Lanka, is a pretty funny South Park episode.It is a funny spoof of what happened to the Jerry Springer show.It used to be a "normal" talk show when it first came out.It had bad ratings so then it became a fun raunchy and hilarious talk show and got better ratings.This episode spoofs that.Jimbo's cable access show and Jesus's cable access show are competing with each other to get the more views.Jesus's producer has some idea's and changes the show into a show that is exactly like "Springer" to get better ratings.Meanwhile, on Jimbo's show, they hunt a fictional Mexican staring frog.Stan made it up after Jimbo made up facts about Vietnam and got an F on his assignment.There is a very funny scene where Jimbo, Ned and the boys are on Jesus's show and they start fighting each other! THis is a funny episode!
