Tired of the abuse he suffers at the hands of his friends, Cartman decides he needs to hang out with more mature people, and goes on-line searching for men who like young boys. After his first two meetings end up being raided by the FBI, Cartman asks Dr. Mephisto for help. The doctor invites Cartman to join a group called NAMBLA, where he'd be more than welcome. Meanwhile, Kenny learns that his mother is about to have another baby, and sets out to kill his potential rival before he's born. Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <>

One of the better episodes!
12 November 2008 | by (Canada(Montreal,Quebec)) – See all my reviews

Cartman joins NAMBLA is one of the funnier,f-ed up and better episodes of South Park.It has plenty of humorous scenes and the episode itself is just funny! The episode has Cartman getting tired of the fact that his friends are not as mature as he is.So he joins an internet chat room for pedophiles(not knowing so) and asks for a friend.He meets "mature" people online and meets them at places, but they all end up getting arrested.Cartman finds out about a group called Nambla(the north American man boy love association), however a bunch of people are trying to bring it down.Meanwhile, Kenny's parents want to have another child, but Kenny will stop at nothing to make sure it does not happen! This is a very funny and entertaining south park episode! One of the better ones!
