Trivia

This was originally intended to be the 100th episode of the series, but it wound up airing as the 97th instead. However, if one includes "Jesus vs. Frosty", "Jesus vs. Santa" and South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut (1999), then this is indeed the 100th story in the South Park universe, making all of the references to that landmark, in a way, still legitimate.

Goofs

At one point Jeff says that there were 60 episodes of Punky Brewster made before it was canceled. In actuality, 66 episodes were made before it was canceled by NBC and moved to syndication, and another 22 made in syndication. See more »

Quotes

Proctologist: [diagnosing Cartman] Wait, what's this?
[a 20-meter-wide satellite dish deploys from Cartman's rectum]
Kyle: Are you okay?
Eric Cartman: Dude. You know that feeling when you take a huge dump? Awesome!
Chef: Well, doctor?
Proctologist: I've never quite seen this before, uh, p - perhaps he just needs some hemmorhoid cream.
[the satellite dish violently withdraws back inside Cartman]
Stan: You all right?
Eric Cartman: You know that feeling when the huge dump you just took shoots back up inside your ass? NO, I'M NOT ALL RIGHT!

Funny and has an interesting plot
8 January 2009 | by gangstahippieSee all my reviews

Cancelled is a very interesting and funny south park episode.It has a very original storyline and I would say it's the best episode of Season 7.It opens exactly like the opening of the episode "Cartman gets an anal probe".The boys sing "school days", Ike follows Kyle to school, Kyle kicks him, Cartman talks about a dream he had where aliens gave him an anal probe...then they realised, it's all happened before.Chef notices it too and they try to figure out what is happening.Apparently, earth is a reality TV show made by aliens and they are showing a re-run.After a scientist finds out about this, he tells everyone, now the aliens want to destroy earth.It's up to the boys to stop them by taking to the joozians! This is a very good episode with funny moments and an interesting storyline.
