Crazy Credits

A drawing of South Park's Kenny on the door of the Freedom Bus can be seen numerous times during the film. Next to it the graffiti "they detained Kenny, bastards". For the protagonists of the film travelling on the Freedom Bus Kenny became a sort of fellow traveller, and thus his his name was added to the movie's end credits. See more »
