TV.com Top 13: The Best South Park episodes

South Park returns for the second half of Season 13 tonight, making it the perfect time to revisit our favorite 13 episodes of the crude comedy. Fake robots, chili cook-offs, and pot-smoking towels? Yep, all here!

13. Fatt Butt and Pancake Head

(Season 7)
Any chance to make fun of Jennifer Lopez AND have Cartman give Ben Affleck an HJ is okay with me. Taco-flavored kisses for my Ben!

12. Towelie

(Season 5)
"Don't forget to bring a towel!" "Wanna get high?" "I'm so high, I don't even know what's going on." Irresponsible? Probably. Hilarious? Absolutely.


11. Woodland Critter Christmas

(Season 8)
Furry little forest creatures who just happen to worship Satan? Adorable!

10. Major Boobage

(Season 12)
No one looked at their cat the same way after watching this Heavy Metal parody. Kenny uses cat pee to trip away to every kid's dream: a land of fantasy and large breasts.


9. Up the Down Steroid

(Season 8)
Jimmy turns to steroids to win the Special Olympics, but beats up his girlfriend in a fit of 'roid rage. Cartman pretends to be "special" to win the $1,000 cash prize. Priceless. Morally bankrupt, offensive on all fronts, and revolting, but priceless.

Let's move on to numbers 8 through 5! >>

8. AWESOM-O

(Season 8)
Cartman pretends to be Butters' robot friend in order to keep a secret safe, but ends up under a cardboard box for much longer than he intended. In the end, he pitches ideas for Adam Sandler movies and almost gets molested by a Hollywood executive.

7. Casa Bonita

(Season 7)
Cliff diving! A cave with pirate treasure! A puppet show! Mariachis! Sopapillas! Juvenile Hall! And what makes this episode even better is Casa Bonita is real.


6. Le Petit Tourette

(Season 11)
Cartman discovers Tourette's syndrome, and sees it as a way to curse whenever he wants. Then the s*** hits the fan.

5. Best Friends Forever

(Season 9)
My PSP is merely a paperweight now, but Kenny's turns out to be a weapon of God. Trey and Matt tackle the Terry Schiavo case in this episode, with Kenny turning into a vegetable and saving the world after the plug is pulled on his life-support machines.


And now for the final four! >>

4. Imaginationland

(Season 11)
It's Care Bears vs. the Orcs from Lord of the Rings! Strawberry Shortcake vs. the Woodland Critters! It's good vs. evil in this three-episode epic. But the best part? The goofy song one must sing to get to Imaginationland.

3. Good Times with Weapons

(Season 8)
When the boys find some martial arts weapons, they turn into anime-style ninjas. Of course, Butters takes the brunt of the damage, suffering a ninja star in the eye, dog pee on his arms, and puppy poop all over.


2. Make Love, Not Warcraft

(Season 10)
Trey and Matt go after online gaming in this episode, which features in-game graphics and l33t speak from World of Warcraft, one of the greatest dangers to a functional society.

1. Scott Tenorman Must Die

(Season 5)
After purchasing pubic hair from a ninth-grader to enter manhood, Cartman's best revenge ever involves a fellating horse, a chili cook-off, and Radiohead. The tears taste soooooooo good.


The second-half of South Park's 13th season premieres tonight at 10 pm on Comedy Central.

One of the best scenes in south park is when they make fun of the "ghost hunters" in the dead celebrities episode, the whole episode is just absolutely hillarious, also the startling , with the guinea pigs.. That was also really good! "I'm so startled!" the best line ever!

what about "in the closet", the scientology episode? i think it's hilarious because contains this bonkers sci-fi story, but what makes it even better is the "this is what scientologists actually believe" caption at the bottom of the screen. best episode ever!
