Storyline

The boys get recruited to join a choir group performing in Costa Rica to help save the rainforest. The choir leader, Miss Stevens, wants to teach everyone how wonder the rainforest is, and leads the group on a nature tour, only to get hopelessly lost in the wilderness where they fall victim to wild animals, quicksand, violent natives and rebel troops. Only Cartman, who sneaks away after getting fed up with Miss Stevens' love of nature, can save his classmates. Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

Trivia

Trey Parker developed the idea for this episode after his trip to Costa Rica with his girlfriend at the time, on advice from Flea from the Red Hot Chili Peppers. Trey hated the trip, and most of the episode parodies the experiences he had, where to an extent "everything he (Cartman) says in this about Costa Rica is just me (Trey) saying that". See more »

Goofs

The group gets lost in the jungle and Cartman decides to leave them. Immediately after he walks away, he's still seen in the group, noticeable by his hat and the unchanging number of children seen before and after. See more »

Wild episode!
20 October 2008 | by gangstahippieSee all my reviews

Rainforest, Schmainforest is the season 3 opener of South Park.Season 3 was overall a good season with great episodes such as the three "meteor shower episodes".Unlike the other seasons which are Rated 14A in Canada, this one is Rated 18A and I do not really know why.It could be because of the final episode but there have been worse episodes with a 14A rating.Anyway, this episode guest stars Jennifer Aniston as a save the rainforest choir group leader.During her class presentation, the boys make fun of the group except for Kenny who is stricken by one girl's beauty.The boys are then forced to join the choir.They travel to Costa Rica to visit the rainforest and find it's not all its cracked up to be! This episode has some really funny moments and is overall a good episode!
