  • Nice Episode

    9.5
    I like it because it really tells a lot about Cartman, he's greedy, selfish, and mean. It also has some funny moments like as "You know what the best part of Cartmanland is? You can't come!". Contains the usual Kenny death, which causes Kenny's parents to sue Cartman ("But he dies all the time!" Cartman Quote) I would totally reccomend this to even the smallest South Park fan
  • I'm going to CartmanLand!!!

    8.5
    I really like this episode it's in my top 5 of south park episodes. In this episode Cartman's Grandma died and she lefl 1,000,000 dollars in her Will. Then Kyle gets mad that Cartman has 1,000,000 dollars. Then Cartman uses the money to buy an adventure Park. I thought that Cartman was going to use the money to build an Adventure Park. Then only buys the Adventure Park just for him to use only. Then Kyle gets a big pain in his butt and blames it on God that's not right blame it on him. Then Cartman starts to let people in because he need to make money to hire people to fix CartmanLand. Then Cartman sells CartmanLand and then the IRS takes Cartman's Money and he lose the rest because Kenny die in park poor guy.moreless
  • one of the greatest south park episodes ever.

    9.0
    Cartmanland was a superb episode. it covers all the criteria i want for a south park episode. the quality, the humor, the setting, and the character development. and cartmanland has basically covered all of these criteria. another superbly done episode to show cartmans stupidity.cartmanland is an enhancement to season five. the reason i did not give this episode a ten is because there are quite a few other episodes that exceeded cartmanland s quality of a south park episode.if i gave this episode any higher mark it would have tipped of the balance. i am not saying anything bad about this episode.



    overall, terrific episode, highly recommended.moreless

  • One of the best.

    This episode of South Park is really one of my favorites and is probably in my top 10 favorites. It's a very funny episode where Cartman inherits one million dollars and spends it all on a theme park and keeps on having to hire people to work at his park which leads Cartman to keep on letting people into his park. It's just a really funny story, I really like episodes that revolve around Cartman, because he is such a funny character. It's just so funny how good the park he owns is doing and yet he thinks that it's bad and wants to sell it back, but he loses all of his money because of injuries in the park. This truly is a great episode.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (11)

    • As the banker counted to $999,400, there are 3 $100 notes left in his hand, which would only make a total of $999,700.

    • The investment broker who hassles Cartman and the amusement park owner are the exact same person but with different voices.

    • When Cartman is at the bank picking up his million dollars, there are about 5-10 people with him. When he leaves the bank, there are about 10-15 people with him.

    • The prices of some of Cartman's items on his expenses list, don't make sense. For example, the third item from below, it says "1000 Light Bulbs" and the price for this item comes to 30000 Dollars. Even he as a 9-year-old kid should know, that 30 dollars for a single light bulb is ridiculous.

    • For some reason, Kyle's parents left out the ending of the story of Job, where he gets back everything he lost times two, which of course makes him wealthier and happier than ever. Kyle's parents claim that it ends with Job simply praising God despite his awful problems.

    • If Cartman spends the entire 1 million dollars on the theme park, where does he get the money to produce a commercial or install the "new Tornado Twister" and buy TV air time, to mock Stan and Kyle? The fact that Cartman didn't have any more money was essential to him having to eventually let people into the park.

    • When Kyle was talking to Stan in the Synagogue, he said that his hemorrhoid hurt so much that he couldn't sit down, though he was sitting when he said it.

    • The Jewish Bible is known as the Tanakh (in Hebrew), which is an acronym for Torah (the five books of Moses), Nevi'im (Books of the Prophets, e.g. Isaiah), and Ketuvim (Writings, e.g. Job). All of these are in the Christian Bible, with the Christian additions.

    • Kyle, in depression, says that God does not exist, despite having met him in, "Are You There, God? It's Me, Jesus."

    • On the commercials for Cartman's amusement park, the sign says "Cartmanland". When he has to let 816 people in to pay for everything, it says "Funland"

    • Why were Kyle's mom and dad reading the Bible to Kyle, shouldn't they be reading the jewish bible?

  • QUOTES (13)

    • Little Boy: Daddy, Daddy can we ride the rockets?
      Cartman: GOD DAMMIT, GET THE F*CK OUT OF MY WAY!

    • Stan: Dude can you loan me 20 bucks for a new jacket?
      Cartman: Ha! If you need money you can get a job Stan. No freeloaders are gonna take my hard earned cash.
      Kyle: Your grandma left it to you, you didn't earn it!
      Cartman: Didn't earn it? What about all those years I spent making grandma like me? All the wet spit filled kisses I put up with. The constant smell of asprin and pee. Don't tell me I didn't earn it you son of a bitch!

    • Cartman: ...And, since the stupid security guard needs video surveillance, I have to let in two more people a day to cover those expenses... Need to cover the new ticket guy's salary, so that's three more admissions a day... Cleanup crew for the bathroom, money to cover paint and upkeep, so that's about four admissions, that brings the grand total to... God-dammit! Eight hundred and sixteen people can come into the park today!

    • Priest Maxi: Eric, God could sure use that money for a bigger church.
      Cartman: Huh, I think God has plenty of money.

    • Agent: I'm Frank Garrett with the IRS. You haven't kept records of your income or payout, and there's a five hundred thousand dollar discrepancy. Seize the assets. (they grab money)
      Cartman: H-Hey, that's my money!
      Agent: There's also the lawsuit of the little boy who died in your park. The family's entitled to the rest of this. [takes the rest of the money]
      Cartman: What? Kenny? He dies all the time!

    • (after hearing the story of Job in the Bible)
      Kyle: That's the most horrible story I've ever heard. Why would God do such a horrible thing to a good person just to prove a point to Satan?
      Gerald: Oh. Uh, I don't know.
      Kyle: Then I was right. Job has all his children killed, and Michael Bay gets to keep making movies. There isn't a God.

    • Cartman: (crying while on his Logride) I'm so happy!

    • Cartman: Dude are you from Mars or something?

    • Doctor: I'm afraid that the hemorrhoid has spread to his lungs.

    • Kyle: (to God) Why? How could you do this? There are people starving in Alabama and, and you give Cartman a million dollars?

    • (playing with a Jennifer Lopez doll)
      Stan: There you are, Jennifer Lopez! You've been most uncooperative, Ms. Lopez.
      Kyle: (voicing Jennifer Lopez) No, please! I promise I'll never make another album or movie!
      Stan: It's too late for that, Ms. Lopez.
      Kyle: (voicing Jennifer Lopez) Have mercy!

    • Executor: (reading will) For you, Eric, I leave from my life savings, the sum of one million dollars, to be transferred to you immediately.
      Cartman: Whosa-jigga-wha?

    • Cartman: That's right! You stay out!
      Stan: You can't keep us out forever, you f[bleep]ing fatass! We'll be back as soon as Kyle's hemorrhoid is better!

  • NOTES (3)

  • ALLUSIONS (4)

    • Disneyworld:

      Cartmanland has Disneyworld's equivalent of Splash Mountain, The Runaway Train, and The Haunted Mansion, as well as Disneyworld's famed "Fast Pass" which Cartman complains is waiting on line to buy a ticket whose purpose it is to give you a place in line at a later date.

    • Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory:

      When Kyle sees the commercial of Cartmanland on the TV in the hospital, some guys explained that before the amusement park came to be popular (which Cartman hated), it was a closed building. Then, it "opened its doors to the public for the first time."

      This maybe a reference to the book and 1971 film Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, which was before closed, but then, opened its doors to the public for the first time.

    • Squirrel Nut Zippers:

      Cartman: (singing) "Got My Own Theme Park"

      A clear reference to the Squirrel Nut Zippers' song "Got My Own Thing Now."

    • Dr. Seuss:

      Cartman's expression as to why he dislikes lines so much is similar to the Grinch when he expresses why he dislikes Christmas so much in both Dr. Seuss's original book and the holiday special. In fact, his line, "All the lines, lines, LINES!," is just like the Grinch's line, "All the noise, noise, NOISE!"

      There are other Dr. Seuss references in that segment including the nonsensical rhyming words (Kartankulas Plinks), the Dr. Seuss style art with the spotted strawberry, and the Dr. Seuss character playing the bizarre instrument.
