The curious, adventure-seeking, fourth grade group of 10 year old boys, Stan, Kyle, Cartman, and Kenny, all join in in buffoonish adventures that sometimes evolve nothing. Sometimes something that was simple at the start, turns out to get out of control. Everything is odd in the small mountain town, South Park, and the boys always find something to do with it.
Four boys. One f**ked up town.

Exactly who is related to whom in the Marsh family is never consistent. Early episodes imply that Jimbo and Marvin (Stan's grandfather) are on Sharon's side of the family, whereas more recent ones imply they are on Randy's side. Being on Sharon's side makes sense for Jimbo, as he has a different last name. However, Marvin's last name is, indeed, confirmed to be Marsh. Matt Stone revealed in an interview that Jimbo Kerns is Randy's half-brother. See more

There is a persistent rumor that, in the "Big Gay Al" episode, the line "And these South Park Cows are being absolutely molested by Middle Park. I haven't seen so many children since..." was initially followed by "since Michael Jackson came to town". This rumor is entirely unfounded; numerous tapes made of the episode as broadcast prove this, and nobody has yet to offer any actual evidence to the contrary other than memory. Despite this, the rumor persists. See more
