Trivia

The Tooth Decay play is a spot-on spoof of several plays done by the Sesame Street Little Theater on Sesame Street, featuring Prairie Dawn on the piano singing the familiar "oh welcome, oh welcome to our little play" introduction. The intonation and sing-song delivery of the children's lines is also a major part of the spoof. See more »

Is it clichéd to say that I'm Canadian and I enjoyed it?
12 May 2011 | by (Toronto, Canada) – See all my reviews

Yes, "Royal Pudding" is another Canadian related episode for the show and *it is funny*. The recently televised wedding of Prince William and Catherine Middleton, which I only briefly watched, is parodied with a televised royal Canadian wedding that involves pudding, which is, of course, tradition. The deadpan narrator of the wedding frequently uses that word. However, the wedding is interrupted when a seemingly extraterrestrial being kidnaps the princess and wrecks havoc. Even so, the narrator continues his deadpan delivery and usage of the word "tradition". It's a kind of memorable opening, to be honest. The kidnapping upsets Ike and he travels to Canada after a call to arms is issued to Canadians. Ike, therefore, forgoes playing Tooth Decay in Mr. Mackey's kindergarten play about dental hygiene, which provides a second story line to the episode.

Those who want to see an episode that focuses on all four boys, particularly Cartman, will be disappointed. Cartman is a great character, but I can perfectly manage with a break of him. As is tradition with the show, the animation and voicework are well done. Both story lines interested me and, as I mentioned, the episode's funny. Mr. Mackey frequently gets angry with his play and curses at the young kids, which works because what kind of school staff member does that, in real life? Luckily, there's only a rare amount of Canadian stereotypes and I liked the one involving Kraft Dinner. This may not be a stereotype, but I thought the makers were gonna make fun of the gruesome beheading and cannibalization of Tim McLean for the bus scene. They didn't, unless there's an allegory at the end, which, by the way, is darkly funny and is traditional humour for the show. One quibble comes to mind and that's watching the kindergarteners rehearse a part in the play three times. If it's suppose to be funny, I didn't really see it.

Is there a point to this episode? Maybe it's that tooth decay is bad (m'kay) and Canada isn't important to America, though I'm probably overanalysing. After watching this episode, I convinced my brother and my dad to watch it. My dad later said he had never seen a complete "South Park" episode. They enjoyed it and I even watched most of it with them.
