Mickey Mouse erroneously refers to Michael Eisner instead of Jeffrey Katzenberg as the CEO of DreamWorks Animation. See more »


Joe Jonas: Look, we just want our concerts to be about our music and not about purity rings.
Mickey Mouse: Oh gosh, fellas, let me explain this to you one more time. You have to wear the purity rings because that's how we can sell sex to little girls, haha! See, if we make the posters with little girls reaching for your junk, then you have to wear purity rings or else the Disney Company looks bad, haha!

A surprisingly good season opener
15 March 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This episode is very good as far as South Park's recent episodes go. Lately I've been getting the feeling that South Park doesn't feel like an animated comedy, and more of a vehicle for Trey and Matt's commentaries on modern culture.

This episode has commentaries on culture, but the plot relies on one of the characters, this time Kenny. Kenny doesn't usually get very many episodes centered around him, but when he does they are usually incredibly funny, such as Major Boobage.

The plot revolves around Kenny getting a girlfriend, and in an attempt to get her to perform a certain act on him he gets her tickets to a Jonas Brothers concert. But the Jonas Brothers take her back stage, and instead of using her like a groupie they give her a ring to have her pledge abstinence and stay out of trouble. I don't want to give away too much of the plot, but it all turns into a funny commentary on subjects like Disney and Grey's Anatomy.

All in all I'd recommend this episode to fans of the show.
