Storyline

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.

Did You Know?

Trivia

Because a lot of films in 2000 such as the film Fantasia 2000, a few of the first episodes of season 4 had 2000 in the title as a in-joke. See more »

Goofs

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 »

Quotes

Stan Marsh: This is hopeless. We're just going to have to face that the commercialism has been sucked out of Christmas.

Crazy Credits

Canadian broadcasts on commercial TV include a disclaimer warning of adult content -- which is immediately followed by "South Park's" own tongue-in-cheek version. See more »

Alternate Versions

All airings of "The Passion Of The Jew" after its first showing have a few changes in the scene where Stan and Kenny visit Mel Gibson:
  • Gunshots are heard when Kenny and Stan steal $18 from Mel Gibson's wallet.
  • More bouncy Noises are put in when Mel Gibson is bouncing around.
  • Mel Gibson's sung line "And good evening friends" is done much differently, including Mel running outside (rathing than bouncing), he does a spin and sings his line, and walks off screen, instead of runs.
  • One bounce noise is added in when Mel Gibson jumps in front of the jewish people.

Best social satire ever, yet rarely seen as such
7 November 2018 | by manel_medeirosSee all my reviews

South Park is probably the most misunderstood show in TV history.

Sure, it does have fart jokes but what it has really involved into is a show that depicts a wide range of current events, pop cultures references, social problems through the lenses of a group of 10 year olds and all the wacky characters that surround them.

The fact that the drawings are fairly simple also makes a lot of people shy away from it, but actually this show has a completely unique approach to several divisive or thought-provoking subjects. To name a few:

  • 'The Hobbit" looks at how photoshopped photos makes society expectations of a woman's body hard to reach and the amount of pressure it may put on little girls (whilst taking hilarious jabs at Kanye West and Kim Kardashian)


  • "You're getting old" takes you over the nightmare that is feeling like you might be mentally older than you friends and that may make left out


  • Console Wars episodes dive into the consumerism involving Black Friday, video games and the world's obsession with Game of Thrones


These are all great episodes and I think the show if anything has aged well with time.

The other brilliant thing about South Park is that because each episode gets produced in the span of week, it can be more up to date than any scripted show - just this season it referenced Kavanaugh nomination controversy in an episode even before he was eventually confirmed.

Second 10/10 I have given on IMDb and South Park is well deserving of it.
