Storyline

Presented by "A British Person", this episode looks at the background of the character Pip, in the form of a South Park version of "Great Expectations". Young Pip, having first been employed in the service of Miss Havisham, an insane heiress, learns that an unknown person has paid to have him sent to a fine boarding school so that he may be raised as a gentleman. After finishing his schooling he returns to visit Miss Havisham, whom he believes was his mysterious benefactor. Only now does he learn what the woman's true intentions were, at which point the story separates completely from the original Dickens novel. Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

Trivia

This is the one of the only episodes in the entire South Park series in which none of the main characters - Kyle, Stan, Kenny or Cartman - appear. The other is South Park: Terrance and Phillip in Not Without My Anus (1998). This is the only episode to feature someone from South Park without including any of the four central characters.

Not bad but still one of the worst episodes
11 November 2008 | by gangstahippieSee all my reviews

Pip is a strange South Park episode.Most South Park fans will not like it(unless maybe you are both a fan of South Park and Charles Dickens).None of the main characters appear in this episode, it's solely an episode revolving around Pip.Pip is the British kid who usually is bullied by the boys(especially in Season 1).This is his own episode.The episode features Malcom McDowell(of Clockwork Orange fame) telling the story of Pip, which is basically a spoof of the Charles Dickens novel "Great Expectations" which I have not read.Pip is a poor blacksmith who falls in love with a girl, but the girl's mother wants her to break his heart so his tears can be used in a machine which will make the mother look younger.The episode is cut into three acts and involves robot monkey's as well.There are some funny parts in the episode, but it is one of the most unfunny episodes of the show.It is also sometimes hard to understand the characters.Pip is one of the worst South Park episodes but it is still decent.There are no really bad episodes of South Park in my opinion.
