  • Episode Description
  • The Sundance Film Festival moves to South Park after its original locale has turned from a quaint mountain town into another Los Angeles. At first, the town is happy to have all the people there boosting the local economy, but the Hollywood types start to impose. This is most harmful to Mr. Hankey, who has to live in the sewer when it's not Christmas. All the extra waste has disrupted his environment, causing him to slowly die. Kyle convinces him to come to the surface to confront the festival chairman.moreless

    • Chef: Children, this whole film festival thing has quite lucrative monetary possibilities. Now I'm gonna sell some of my famous cookies to these Hollywood types and make a mint. Cartman: What kind of cookies? Kyle: Calm down tubby!

    • Chef's Salty Chocolate Balls Song: Say everybody have you seen my balls? They're big and salty and brown. Whenever you need a fix, hook me up. Just stick my balls in my mouth. Ooh, suck on my chocolate salty balls. Put 'em in your mouth. Put 'em in your mouth and suck 'em and suck 'em.

    • Chef: Get them while they're hot. My all new cookies, I Just Went And Fudged Your Momma. Cartman: Jesus, he sure ran that one into the ground.

    • Mr Garrison: Okay children I have some very exciting news for you. Why don't you tell them Mr Twig? (Garrison as Mr Twig) That's right Mr Garrison. The first annual South Park Film Festival begins today. Wendy: Wow! Cool. Kyle: They're not gonna show that stupid-ass Godzilla movie again are they? Mr Garrison: No, no, Kyle, these are independent films. Stan: Oh like Independence Day? That sucked ass too. Cartman: No dude, independent films are those black and white hippy movies. They're always about gay cowboys eating pudding.

    • Kyle: Does poo go to heaven? Chef: I kinda hope not.

    Notes (3)

    • When the people leave the movie theatre and trample Kenny, you can see a visitor amongst the crowd (for a split second)

    • There actually is an accurate and justified explanation to why Trey and Matt made fun of Robert Redford & the Sundance Film Festival in this episode. A mere couple years before South Park, before the Spirit of Christmas even, Trey and Matt had made a film in college called "Cannibal: The Musical" After Trey had completed the film, he and Matt sent the film to be submitted at the Sundance film festival in Utah, along with their $50.00 submission fee. Not only did they not get picked for the festival, they never got a response of any kind from Sundance. And from the looks of it their $50.00 check never got reimbursed. What's more, according to Lloyd Kaufman, the creator of the Toxic Avenger and producer of Cannibal: The musical, Matt and Trey actually went to Sundance and created their own film festival opposing Sundance and Matt and Trey's festival featured only one film. and, you guessed it, it was "Cannibal: The Musical" So, artistically speaking, Matt and Trey had every right to make fun of the Sundance film festival for not getting picked and for taking their money.

    • In the "Makin' Bacon with Macon" segment before the episode on the second season DVD collection we learn that Robert Redford hates Matt and Trey because of this episode.

    Trivia (19)

    • This is the last episode to feature the town as a background in the end credits. From the next episode and onwards, the end credits would instead be placed against a black background.

    • Chef doesn't know what Cous Cous is in this episode but in Chef Aid, he does.

    • Visitor Sighting: In some scenes during the film festival, an alien is sitting in the theater, you can see the top of its head. Later when the people are exiting the film festival (while killing Kenny) the alien comes out to.

    • In the bathroom, Kyle sings the song "I Can See Clearly Now" by Jimmy Cliff.

    • Fred Savage didn't show up until guests started arriving, but during the first independent film, Fred Savage is in the audience.

    • Phantom of the Opera: As Kyle is walking down the tunnel you can hear Mr. Hankey playing the organ. It is similar to a scene in the movie/play the Phantom of the Opera.

    • Fantasia: When Mr. Hankey causes the sewers to flood the streets, the music from Fantasia(1940) begins to play, poo monsters rise from the muck and dance like the creatures in Fantasia. Also, Mr. Hankey wears the blue cap (with stars) and red robe that Mickey wears in the film, as he "conducts" the sewage.

    • Philadelphia: The movie "Mr. Hankie and Me," is an obvious parody of the Oscar-winning 1993 film, Philadelphia, which starred Tom Hanks.

    • Star Trek III: The Search for Spock: Near the end, the festival director says "I...have had enough...of you!" when throwing Mr. Hanky. This line was spoken by Kirk to Kruge (Christopher Lloyd) in the climactic fight from the 1984 film, Star Trek III: The Search for Spock.

    • Sundance Film Festival: The film festival parodied here is the Sundance Film Festival, held every year in Park City, Utah.
