Trivia

This episode starts with a clip from the "Terrance and Phillip Show". This was made to mislead the audience to believe that this episode would be about Terrance and Phillip instead about the four South Park boys on their way to get a certain Family Guy (1999) episode aired. This is a reference to South Park: Terrance and Phillip in Not Without My Anus (1998), which was the episode that aired after South Park: Cartman's Mom Is a Dirty Slut (1998) which had an immense cliffhanger. The "Not Without My Anus" episode had nothing to do with #1.13 and aired to fool the audience (it aired on April's Fool day). Many viewers were angry that they had to wait for another episode (South Park: Cartman's Mom is Still a Dirty Slut (1998)) until the story established in #1.13 continued. See more »

Quotes

Trucker: [Dropping Kyle off at the FOX Network studios] I really hope you succeed, kid. I don't wanna see "Family Guy" go off the air. I really like that show.
Kyle Broflovski: I'll do everything I can.
Trucker: I mean, I know it's just joke after joke, but I like that. At least it dosen't get all preachy and up its own ass with messages, you know?

Cartoon Wars: Part 1

I certainly had enjoyed Family Guy but when it comes the comparisons for me South Park is infinite times better than Family Guy and here with Cartoon Wars we have two of my favourite South Park episodes and I'm almost sure Cartoon Wars will be some of the very best from Season 10 (yes I know Season 10 finished 2 years ago but I have seen only few episodes). Clever stuff, hilarious and bizarre, in the DVD commentary Trey and Matt explain that this the Mohammad episode became two episodes because the argument with Comedy Central was still going on while they were making this show so they wanted another week to try to convince Comedy Central to show the image of Mohammad. And here is hilarious since the fearless careless cartoon that is about to show the Muslim prophet as a character is Family Guy and everybody knows that ever since those cartoons in Denmark nobody shows an image of Mohammad any more. So there's panic, in South Park everybody is reunited in the Park County Community Center, there have been threats by the terrorists but finally the Family Guy Mohammad episode was censored but it was just the first part! And now a second episode is coming, is going to air very soon with the image of Mohammad uncensored.

This is a fantastic Cartman episode, here Cartman represents South Park since he suffers the comparison with Family Guy, people believe he must like Family Guy but he is nothing like Family Guy! We know him so is not a surprise that he is faking to care of the Muslim people and of the safety of the American people, he has plans to destroy that show. And this is certainly a very memorable first part, the terrorist talking about Family Guy stuff is awesome ("Family Guy is not that even well written") and certainly all the Family Guy stuff too plus the people's solution to not be part of the Family Guy audience is also hilarious just like that police car that was after Cartman and Kyle. Certainly by the end of this first part many questions are still without an answer, questions like: "Or will Comedy Central Puss Out?", "Tune in to see part two of Family Guy, next week… on South Park".

Something more from Trey and Matt's mini commentary: they do hate Family Guy but certainly they don't think it should be taken off the air and stuff, they just don't respect it in terms of writing.

Cartoon Wars: Part 2

The episode Professor Chaos from Season 6 ends with some questions just like he episode Cartoon Wars Part 1 but in Professor Chaos we had answers immediately unlike in Cartoon Wars Part 1 so here we have Part 2 and certainly the following question are answered: Will the cartoon be allowed to appear uncensored? Will Family Guy be destroyed? Will Television executives fight for free speech? Or will Comedy Central Puss Out?

This second part begins in a hilarious way, actually we see the beginning of a new Terrance & Phillip special (great reference to what happened between Cartman's Mom Is a Dirty Slut and Cartman's Mom Is Still a Dirty Slut) but in that special Muhammad also appeared as a character censored just like in the first part of Family Guy so this takes us again to Cartman in his quest to pull the upcoming second part of the Muhammad stuff of Family Guy.

In the DVD commentary Trey and Matt says that they had calls from people of the Simpsons and King of the Hill after Cartoon Wars Part 1 was aired saying "thank you" and "you're doing god's work". For all of them Family Guy is just like Justin Timberlake, while they all try to make a really great work it comes a full of gags show that for all of them is not that even well written but it has by far more rating. So here we see the writing staff of King of the Hill but that moment can't be compared with the moments with Bart Simpson. Cartman will find that there are more persons that also hate Family Guy but still he will be leading the whole operation to pull the episode and end with Family Guy once and for all, obviously Cartman is a f****** hardcore as****e! We have references to the South Park episode Scott Tenorman Must Die and to The Simpsons episode The Telltale Head and if you can remember what was the big stuff that Cartman and Bart did in their respective episodes then will not have any problem in order to know why Cartman should lead the Family Guy operation. More hilarious stuff with the terrorists, "if you look closely at the writing in Family Guy, you will see that the jokes never derive from the plot and I think that's totally gay" that's what Bin Laden says! And yes, Mohammad appeared uncensored on Family Guy, certainly Family Guy was not destroyed, the TV executives fought for the freedom of speech but only the ones of Family Guy. So and also there was a retaliation but more bizarre stuff, funnier than Family Guy (awesome ending). Anyway you should see Cartoon Wars Part 1 and 2, favourites of mine, or where else you will hear even bleep Bart Simpson saying mother f***** and find the secret of the writing staff of Family Guy?
