  • One of Southparks worst episodes.

    1.6
    This does not belong in Southpark. Cartman is not is foul mouthed racist self. This would have been a great addition to other shows, but it does not fit in with Southpark at all. The only funny part was when Cartman said "Just cook me some pizza, b*tch." I'm really glad most Southpark Episodes arn't like this.
  • I mostly really enjoyed this episode, mostly.

    8.4
    This episode starts a chain of having an ongoing storyline throughout three episodes and while the idea in itself is fairly good, they definitely could have started a lot better. Not saying I think this episode is bad though, I actually quite enjoyed it. Cartman playing Wild Wild West with Artemus Clyde Frog was pretty funny and you have to laugh at the fact that a 12 year old girl somehow managed to get into a serious relationship with a 22 year old. One of my favourite parts of the episode was Skyler's new song, It's so bad that it's funny.moreless
  • Cat Orgy

    8.0
    When the plot is fixed on one special place or one house then the dialogue starts to get interesting. Shelley is babysitting the fat toad Eric Cartman when after a while - a bunch of cats come into the whole house for a large cat orgy.

    Though sick, the entertainment really pushes the plot to an extent that makes you want to up the rating a bit but I am leaving the rating at 8.

    If you watch the Best Friends Forever episode, the whole episode is based around Kenny - Butters Very Own Episode is based on Butters and so on. Cat Orgy is Shelley... In my opinion.

    ;D Great, entertaining episode.moreless
  • Eric Cartman has always been intriguing as a character for many reasons. It becomes clear in this episode that one of those reasons is the fact that he is an only child.moreless

    9.6
    Eric Cartman has always been intriguing as a character for many reasons. It becomes clear in this episode that one of those reasons is the fact that he is an only child. This episode is especially great for Eric Cartman's character development because it shows what he is like by himself. Yes, he is a manipulative jerk regularly, but it's nice to see a side of him that's playful, innocent, and almost charming. The games that he plays with his Wild Wild West characters are interesting and hilarious, and his theme song is great, as well. Yes, this episode is worth it just to see the scenes with Cartman by himself.moreless
  • Stupid stuffed animals trying to ruin my night!

    8.0
    In this episode Cartman is baby sat by Stans brother Shelly [The *****], and she tortures him and has her 22 year old boyfriend Skyler [from Lords of the Underworld] over, also there is a big cat orgy in the end, and it makes fun of Will Smiths crappy "Wild Wild West" movie. Funny episode.

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (6)

    • The location of the Crucifix in the Cartman household has moved at least once since the series premiere. In the premiere, the crucifix is hanging on the living room wall next to the kitchen door. In 'Cat Orgy', the exact same crucifix is hanging on the living room wall adjacent to the sofa. It is not unusual for someone to redecorate their house, however, but it is interesting that the crucifix is so boldly displayed; it is the only wall decoration beside the photo of Cartman and his mother at Mt. Rushmore.

    • Visitor Sighting: An alien appears on the screen in "Aliens" right behind Ripley. Then Shelly (who is babysitting Eric Cartman) interrupts Cartman and tells him ''Well I'm watching Friends Turd''.

    • When Cartman first goes to get catnip underneath the sink, there are no dishes beside the microwave, but in the next scene there is dishes on a rack.

    • When Cartman was in the kitchen and looked at the note his mom wrote, it said to Cartman, but when he was reading it he said to Eric.

    • Throughout the series, it is implied that Cartman's cat Mr. Kitty is a male, but in this episode, Kitty is a female and in heat.

      However, on March 25 2010 it was revealed in a FAQ by South Park Studios that he is infact, a hermaphrodite.

      "Q: ...did Cartman's cat change sex? I mean, when Shelly brings her boyfriend over to Cartman´s house in "Cat Orgy," it is a female. On the other hand, in "Major Boobage" it is a male cat..."

      A: You're right about that, Cartman's cat has been shown swinging both ways. My guess is Mister Kitty is a hermaphrodite, just like Cartman's mom. Little bit of both worlds, with an extra side of cheese."

    • The drummer in Skyler's band apparently hated Shelly's turd song and said it was "gay." But why was he smiling and looking happy when he was drumming to it?

  • QUOTES (12)

    • Lianne: Thank you so much for babysitting little Eric, Shelley.
      Shelley: (shrugs) Okay.
      Lianne: All those other babysitters wouldn't come back.

    • Lianne: Oh, that sounds fine. I'm going to a meteor shower party. The number where I'll be is on the refrigerator. Eric's nookie time is 9 o'clock sharp. If his little woogums get cold, you can turn up the heat over here. And if he gets cranky, just play tummy-rub-rubs with him, and make sure he wipes good after he makes bears.

    • Cartman: (approaches Shelley) Well, go put that pizza in the oven, b*tch! I'm hungry! (she punches him into the wall) Ow!
      Shelley: Alright, turd, listen up! Now that your mom is gone, I'm in charge. I don't know how you treat your other babysitters, but when I'm babysitting, you're nothing but a little turd. You're a stinky dried-up stupid turd! Got it?!
      Cartman: You can't hit me! Didn't you see those nanny videos on TV? (she punches him, sending him into the wall again)
      Shelley: My boyfriend is coming over, so you go to the kitchen, and you make us that pizza before I snap you in half like the little turd-stick you are!

    • Cartman: ( as "Artemus" Clyde Frog) If we save her, I am going to take off her pants and play Slip'N'Slide!

    • Cartman: Look out, Artemus Clyde Frog! It's a giant metal spider!
      (Tosses Clyde aside, aims at a plush spider hanging on the edge of his toy box and fires toy gun)
      Cartman: Bang! Bangbang!
      (Strafes and performs a cartwheel)
      Cartman: Yoyoyo, jiggity jiggy with it! Bang bang bang!
      (He Tosses a baseball at the spider and knocks it out of the box)
      Cartman: We saved the day! The Wild Wild West, The Wild Wild Wild West. Uhyo wicky wicky scratch, Uh wicky wicky scratch…

    • Cartman: That was so cool! I wish we could've seen his face.
      Shelly: Thanks for all your help Eric. You know, as far as turds go, you're okay.
      Cartman: (opens the door to see a group of cats having an orgy) Oh my god!
      Shelly: They're having a cat orgy!

    • Cartman: (Doing his rendition of Wild Wild West) Well, I'm a badass cowboy living in a cowboy's age, whicky-whicky scratch yo-yo bang-bang. Me and Artemus Clyde Frog go save Salma Hayek from the big metal spider. Whicky-whicky-wick fresh, cowboy from the westside.

    • Skyler: Stupid stuffed animals trying to ruin my night!

    • Narrator on TV: The Male Lion now wants to be alone. he sends the female away an promises he will call her tomorrow. But the female won't leave. No, she is moving right in. Looks like the male lion is screwed.

    • Shelly: Nobody my age will go out with me because I'm too ugly!
      Cartman: You're not ugly.
      Shelly: You don't think so?
      Cartman: Well, you're pretty ugly, but you don't have to be dating 22 year olds.

    • Skyler: How long do we know each other?
      Shelly: Tomorrow it will be 8 days.

    • Liane: The babysitter's here, come on downstairs.
      Cartman: But, Mo-om, I'm playing Wild, Wild We-est!
      Liane: I have to leave soon, Eric.
      Cartman: But Ma-a-am! Me and Artemus Clyde Frog still have to do our love scene with Selma Hyea-a-ak!

  • NOTES (5)

    • This is one of the few episodes before season 5 where Kenny doesn't die; however seeing as this takes place at the same time as "Jewbilee", where Kenny sacrifices himself to free Moses, he dies off screen.

    • This is one of the very few times Cartman does anything nice out of sympathy and doesnt end up completely ruining it at the end.

    • Jay Leno does not return as the voice of Mr. Kitty.

    • Stan, Kyle & Kenny didn't appear in this episode; however Stan does appear in 'Two Naked Guys In A Hot Tub' and Kyle and Kenny do appear in 'Jewbilee' and these episodes make it 'The Meteor Shower Trilogy.'

    • Shelly's 22-year-old boyfriend Skyler will reappear with his band under the name of Lords of the Underworld in the 4th season episode "Timmy! 2000".

  • ALLUSIONS (4)

    • Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope:

      Cartman tells Kitty "You're my only hope", this is a reference to Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope when Princess Leia tells Obi-Won Kenobi the same thing.

    • Aliens:

      Cartman can be seen watching Aliens on TV at one point. He repeats Newt's line "They mostly come out at night. Mostly.." in a mocking tone.

    • Pink Floyd:

      When Cartman takes a picture of Skyler and Shelly kissing, he says "Ha ha, charade you are!". That is a reference to the Pink Floyd song "Pigs (Three Different Ones)" where the phrase "Ha ha, charade you are!" is used.

    • Wild Wild West:

      At the start of the show, Cartman is playing "Wild Wild West." This is an obvious reference to 1999's Razzie Award winning Will Smith film, Wild Wild West that came out the same weekend as "South Park: Bigger, Longer and Uncut" and the creators of the show thought it was the most dumbest idea for a movie. In Cartman's version, Polly Prissy Pants plays Selma Hayek and Clyde Frog plays Artemus Frog. He also sings a hilarious parody of Will Smith's song, "Wild, Wild West."

      Cartman's "Wild Wild West" also spoofs the theme song to "The Fresh Prince of Bel Air" which also starred Will Smith.
