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.

Kenny being killed off in each episode and coming back in the following episode, as if never happened, only to die again was influenced by the MTV cartoon Æon Flux
(1991). At the end of each episode, Aeon Flux is killed, but is alive at the beginning of the next episode, only to die again. See more
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
And what I think, basically, is that when you let what you watch be under your parents' control, television sucks. Television sucks because parents get offended because they rely on television as a babysitter for their kids.
Good point, man.
In the episode "Mr. Hanky", there is a short clip of Jesus singing to himself on his birthday during the credits. See more
