Did You Know?


The plot was inspired by the large amount of hunting Trey Parker and Matt Stone saw around them while growing up in Colorado. Neither of them were hunters, and Parker said Stan's hesitation about hunting was based largely on himself and his father, who hated the idea of killing an animal even though Parker's grandfather, like Jimbo, was enthusiastic about the sport.

This episode of South Park, "Volcano" is pretty darn funny. It features some outrageous one-liners including the famous "Cartoons kick ass." This episode, the third one in Season 1, lampoons the two Volcano films which came out in 1997 and Patrick Duffy. The animation is starting to round into form as compared to the first episode.

This episode is about Uncle Ned taking the kids for a hunting trip in the mountains but they don't realize a volcano is on the verge of erupting.

Overall, this is a pretty funny episode. I liked now Ned tries to convince the guys that hunting is never fun sober and how he shoots every animal in sight. Also, I wish I have seen more of the Scuzzlebutt. I rate this episode 9/10.
