The sad reality is this: South Park will eventually end. However, don't expect Stan, Kyle, Cartman, and Kenny to go away with a black screen for 15 seconds or be thrown into a Latham, Massachusetts, jail. Creator Trey Parker is leaning toward a more glamorous farewell: a sendoff on the big screen.
Thank gosh the Cold War is over, otherwise things could have gotten nuke-tacular. City officials in Mother Russia are upset over local channel 2x2 Television for broadcasting an episode of South Park that they claim promotes extremism.
South Park didn't back down in its tiff with Scientology. Wednesday night's season 10 premiere took aim at recently departed voice actor Isaac Hayes and the religious program founded by science fiction writer L. Ron Hubbard.
In the episode, the character of Chef, formerly played by Hayes, appears on the show using audio spliced together from previous episodes. Chef has been away in the "Super Adventure Club," which, in true South Park form, is revealed to be a group that brainwashes victims into becoming pedophiles.
The South Park gang attempts to deprogram Chef by taking him to a strip club. In the end, Chef is burned alive, falls down a ravine, is gored by a tree, and is then eaten alive by a cougar and a bear.
At Chef's funeral, South Park character Kyle says, "We shouldn't be mad at Chef for leaving us. We should ...Read more
South Park is taking aim at any and all who step in the way of freedom of comedic speech. The animated show lashed out its own network, Comedy Central, in an episode that aired Wednesday.
The latest brouhaha occurred after South Park creators Matt Stone and Trey Parker wrote an episode depicting the prophet Muhammad. Muslims consider images of Muhammad to be sacrilegious.
Citing public safety concerns, Comedy Central kyboshed the image due to protests that occurred when images of the prophet appeared in Danish newspapers.
In January, European newspapers ran cartoons depicting Muhammad as a terrorist. Protests turned violent and many Muslim countries boycotted Danish products.
In the episode, a parody of the show Family Guy featured Muhammad coming to the door of the Griffin house and giving Peter a "salmon helmet." Instead of seeing the prophet, the screen said ...Read more
South Park offends, repulses, and disgusts many television viewers. To those people, I quote the great Eric Cartman: "Screw you guys." To celebrate
American Idol's 13 finalists South Park's 13th season (which begins tomorrow night), we've compiled our favorite baker's dozen episodes. Don't agree with the list? Read the above Eric Cartman quote.
In the ongoing battle against digital piracy, South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone decided to say, "F*** it. Let's let people watch Scott Tenorman eat his parents in chili whenever they want."
The two maniacal geniuses have tapped into the Internet generation by making every single episode of their popular animated show available for streaming on the Web; a South Park-only Hulu, if you will. Sweeeeet.
All 12 seasons of the show, including new ones that just aired, can be streamed from SouthParkStudios.com, which was just overhauled yesterday to accommodate the full episodes. Though the episodes have breaks for commercials, ads had not yet been implemented as of press time.
"Every South Park episode and billions of clips have been online for years on YouTube or BitTorrent (...) we've always loved ...Read more
For South Park fans like us, the sudden and unexpected departure of Isaac Hayes, the voice of Chef, was a major blow--after all, the jolly cafeteria worker's off-color songs and sage advice have made for some of the show's most memorable moments over the years. And it just doesn't make sense that after so many seasons of carefree mockery, Hayes would decide that South Park's ridicule of various religious persuasions was prohibitively offensive...right?
The unbelievable news sent rumors flying about what really happened to Chef: Did Scientologists persuade Hayes to leave the show, or even bypass him entirely and quit for him? Did the nefarious Tom Cruise have something to do with the cancellation of a repeat episode of South Park? Can Trey Parker and Matt Stone win a "million-year ...Read more
Based on a Christmas card by the now-producers, Matt Stone and Trey Parker, called "The Spirit of Christmas"; South Park is a show about four boys; Eric Cartman, Stan Marsh, Kyle Broflovski, and Kenny McCormick. These four little fourth graders live in one messed up town. From talking poo to un-dead celebrities, to a mystical land of imagination, they see it all. All there is to say, is that... No one is safe. Black, white, Jewish, Christian, Scientologist, and everything in between, this show covers it all, and makes light of just about everything.moreless
