    Mr. Mackey passes out sample marijuana because "drugs are bad" and he wants to make sure the kids never do it. But it gets lost and as a consequence Mr. Mackey is fired. Meanwhile Kyle tries to save his brother Ike from a bris, after learning what that is.



    Good episode. The marijuana plot did not do much for me but the overall plot of the bris was really funny and well done, I certainly thought so at least. No real complaints except for the marijuana plot boring me a little, so overall my grade is a B+. Good episodemoreless
  • Best.Ike.Episode.Ever

    This is one of my favorite episodes of all time,next to Mr Hankey,The Christmas Poo.Mr Mackey gets fired from losing a drug and gets an addiction to drugs,while Kyle think that his parents are going to chop off Ike's Wee Wee.Now if there's one thing that I like about this show is Ike.He's my favorite character of the show and is so Adorable and cute.This was just his best episode of all time.Kyle finds out that Ike is adopted and Kyle decides that Ike is not his brother.That scene was just full of cuteness,espically with Ike wearing Kyle's hat.Then,Kyle decides that Ike IS his brother,but was going to Snip his Wee Wee.Cutest episode of South Park ever made.Next review:A Fistful Of Edmoreless
  • Drugs are bad but this episode sure isn't

    8.5
    The Broflovski family is getting ready for a big occasion: Kyle's little brother Ike is about to have his Bris. Everything is going fine until Stan discovers just what a 'Bris' is: they're going to cut off Ike's penis Kyle, thinking his parents have gone insane, vows to protect his little brother by hiding him away where they can't get him. Meanwhile, Mr. Mackey gets fired from his job when an anti-drug demonstration goes wrong.



    This episode is pivotal as it isn't really about Cartman, Stan, Kyle or Kenny but rather Mr. Mackey and Ike and it shows that other characters can hold up an episode just as well as the four main boys can. Even though both of the plots are flawed when it comes to originality and laughs as both of them deal with uneasy topics like drugs and circumcision; both of them contain some fun moments at erratic occasions.



    Even though the episode looks much unsophisticated with the usually cut and paste look to it; it's what's on the inside that matters. Trey Parker steals the show as Mr. Mackey and expands his range with emotions like depression and hallucinating. Isaac Hayes delivers a memorable cameo as Chef. Ike's Wee Wee is an example of the show's not so classy beginning but its excellent overall.moreless
  • Don't do drugs, Mckay! Warning: Contains spoilers.

    9.0
    A bris is a circumcision "ritual" performed by Jewish people. That said, let's get the 8 year old South Park definition. "It's when you cut off your wee wee". That definition will have changed the life of the children and cause Kyle to hide Ike from his parents so he won't get his penis cut off. This episode was awesome, and also hilarious. I mean really hilarious. Mr. Mackay doing drugs and floating like a balloon after a hit of LSD? That's just funny. But you shouldn't do it.



    After Stan discovers that a bris, which Kyle's little brother is having, Ike, is when someone gets a circumcision. But, Stan thinks a circumcision is when you get your "wee wee" or penis cut off. That said, Kyle hides Ike to Nebraska. After a fake funeral when Kyle discovers that Ike is Canadian, Kyle tells his parents where his little Ikie poo is and he hates him. Soon, he'll discover family isn't who's blood you share, but who you care about. And that's why his friends are sort of like more than friends, but like family.. except for Cartman.. and Cartman doesn't want to be in Kyle's wee wee chopping family.



    This episode was hilarious and awesome. I enjoyed it and I recommend this episode for South Park fans.moreless
  • Ike's Wee Wee

    10
    My favourite character since near to the start has been the adopted Ike Brofloski (Also known as Peter). Canadian young little Kyle's brother is cute, handsome and very funny and he is definitely one of the better characters in all the seasons of animation South Park.

    This exciting Jewish-Canadian episode shows how Kyle accepts his brother Ike as his adopted brother. I really enjoyed this episode out of all of teh Season 1, 2 & 3 episodes. This episode is emotional, funny and fresh... If any episode is as great as Ike's Wee Wee (apart from Trapper Kepper) then I would like to know

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (4)

    • After the kids were searched for marijuana, how could the teachers weren't serach for the same thing. It was very clear that Mr. Garrison took it, since he was later seen stoned.

    • The pronunciation of "bris" means that Kyle's family are Ashkenazi Jews

    • How could Kyle not have known about Ike being adopted? He's only 2 years old and Kyle should have been at least 6 when he was adopted. Also, Kyle watches Terrence and Phillip, and he probably knows they're Canadian, and he didn't realise Ike resembled them?

    • When Mr. Mackey came back to school at the end, the first view of the kids at their desks shows Kenny there, but in the next view of them he is not.

  • QUOTES (16)

    • Stan: Why do dogs have cold noses?
      Mr. Mackey: Uuuhh.. well I'm not sure.

    • Stan: (about Kyle telling his parents) Dude, you shouldn't have told them that; now they're gonna go find him and cut off his penis!
      Cartman: Fireman.
      Kyle: Ah, who the hell cares? He's not even my responsibility!
      (Kenny falls in an empty grave; the gravestone breaks in half and falls on him, killing him as well.)
      Stan: Oh, my god! They killed Kenny!
      Kyle: You bastards.

    • Father Maxi: Yay let us ponder the Lord's mercy. Ashes to ashes, dust to dust.

    • Kyle: (to Chef) Hey, are you come to Ike's bris this weekend?
      Chef: Oh, hell no! I can't bear to see that!
      Stan: What do you mean?
      Chef: Don't you boys know what a bris is?? They're going to circumcise him!
      Cartman: Eh, what's that?
      Chef: (to himself) Oh, boy. Here we go again… (to the boys) Children, uh… What's the one thing that's more sacred to a man than anything else in the world?
      Stan: Uh, bicycles?
      Cartman: Ham?
      Kyle: No, not ham, you fat ****!
      Cartman: (to Kyle) Screw you! (to Chef) It's ham, isn't it?
      Chef: No no no, children. I'm talking about the most important part of a man's body.
      Kyle: Uh, your heart?
      Stan: Your eyes!
      (Chef puts his hand on his head.)
      Kenny: (muffled) I know! Your penis!
      Chef: That's right!
      Cartman: Hey! My mom says you're not supposed to call it a penis, Kenny! You're supposed to call it a fireman!
      Chef: A fireman??
      Cartman: That's the proper way to say it, or else you'll get a spanking!
      Chef: (gets into car) Damn it, children! Why do I always have to be the one to explain all of this stuff to you? Ask your parents for once!
      Kyle: Hey, wait!
      (Chef drives off.)
      Stan: (to Kenny) Dude, something tells me this "bris" thing isn't good!

    • Chef: Hello there, children!
      Boys: Hey, Chef!
      Kyle: How's it going?
      Chef: Bad…
      Kyle: Why bad?
      Chef: Children, I heard about what happened at school today! Now none of you tooked that nasty marijuana, did you?
      Stan: No, dude! We never even saw it!
      Chef: Okay, because I just want to tell you that drugs are bad.
      Stan: We know, we know, that's what everybody says!
      Chef: Right. But do you know WHY they're bad?
      Kyle: Because they're an addictive solution to a greater problem, causing disease of both body and mind, the consequences far outweighing their supposed benefits.
      Chef: And do you have ANY idea what that means?
      Kyle: No.
      Cartman: I know! Drugs are bad, because if you do drugs, you're a hippie; and hippies suck!

    • Kyle: You know, I've learned something today. Family isn't about whose blood you have, it's who you care about. That's why I feel you guys are more then just my friends; You're my family.
      Stan: Yeah.
      Kyle: Except for Cartman.
      Stan: Naturally.
      Cartman: Well screw you guys! I don't wanna be in your penis choppin' family anyway!

    • Sheila: Gerald, do something about your smartass son!
      Gerald: Uhh...mind your... mother, smartass.

    • Mr. Freely: (Mackey's landlord) I've never taken drugs before and look at me...I'm fine. Now get off my property before I lose control and kill you!

    • Devil Mackey: Go ahead, drink the beer. It will calm you down.
      Angel Mackey: Yeah, why the hell not? It's just beer. Don't be such a pussy, mmmkay.

    • Cartman: Dude, you don't just chop off somebody's fireman!
      Kyle: I won't believe it, I won't.

    • Guy: Hi!
      Sheila: Hi. Uh, do I know you?
      Guy: Oh no, but I never miss a bris! I brought some dip.
      Sheila: Oh great.

    • Stan: (imitating Mr. Mackey) We're sorry, Mr. Mackey, mmkay?
      Mr. Mackey: Uh, that's okay, just don't let it happen again.
      Kyle: We won't let it happen again, Mr. Mackey, mmkay?
      Mr. Mackey: Mmkay, that's that.
      Cartman: Mmkay?
      Mr. Mackey: Mmkay.

    • Ike: Hi-dee-ho!

    • Mr. Mackey: Uh, Marijuana's bad.
      Street Guy: What?
      Mr. Mackey: Marijuana makes you feel depressed and low.
      Street Guy: And you don't feel that way now?
      Mr. Mackey: Hmm, good point.

    • Cartman: Dude, that is not cool! Chopping off wee-wees is not cool!

    • Cartman: The fireman is very magical. Rub his helmet and he spits in your eye.

  • NOTES (6)

    • This is the first of many episodes where Trey Parker has the sole writing credit.

    • The band 'Alien Project' made a song entitled "Who has the Marijauna" on their "Don't Worry, Be Groovy" album that includes many samples of Mr. Mackey from this episode.

    • In syndication, Cartman's phrase "the fireman spitting when you rub its helmet" (in reference to why a man's penis shouldn't be cut off) was cut. It is not cut from the reruns on Comedy Central.

    • When Mr. Mackey goes to the bar and gets drunk, he stumbles home singing Pat Benatar's "Love Is a Battlefield." The guys used the same song later in the Season 7 episode Red Man's Greed, where the town sang the song to rally against the Native Americans.

    • Notice the alphabet thing above the chalkboard it says DiOsMiOhAnMaTaDoHaKeNnYbAsTaRdOs - which spelled out is "Dios Mio Mataron a Kenny, bastardo," Spanish for "Oh my God they killed Kenny, you bastard."

    • In one version of this episode, the censors missed one swear word. When a drugged out Mackey runs into Jimbo and Ned he says "I don't need to take your right-wing, authoritative, b*******." It was later fixed and is now bleeped out.

  • ALLUSIONS (5)

    • Teletubbies
      : When Mr. Garrison is stoned, the characters he is watching on TV resemble the Teletubbies, characters from a popular children's program.

    • The 1983 tv show "The A-Team" is referenced. In the episode, the A-Team abduct Mr. Mackey in their van to take him to drug rehab with the A-Team theme music in the background.

    • Star Wars:

      Dr. Schwartz: Kyle, a circumcision is a very common thing for Ike to have. His father had it, his grandfather had it, and... his brother... had it.

      The above line is a takeoff of Luke Skywalker's dialogue when he talks to Leia about the lineage of the Force in the 1983 film, Star Wars: Episode VI - Return of the Jedi.

    • The Simpsons:

      Driver 1: That's what you and Homer Simpson have in common, D'ope!

      Mr. Mackey was blamed for accidentally giving out marijuana (a form of dope) in school and got fired. The man in the car makes light of this using Homer Simpsons infamous catchphrase, D'oh, from The Simpsons.

    • Circumcision/Jewish Tradition:

      "Bris Milah" is the Jewish circumcision tradition, it literally means Covenant of Circumcision.
