Stan, Kyle, Kenny and Cartman join some anti-war protesters because it's a free pass out of school for the day. Their simple plan to protest their way out of class goes south when they find themselves in the middle of the two opposing sides of the war issue. Their teacher, Mr. Garrison, an extreme supporter of the war, retaliates by assigning them book reports on the country's founding fathers. Meanwhile, Cartman induces his own flashback to avoid studying and travels back to 1776 where he plays an important role in the historic signing of the Declaration of Independence. Pretty bad ep.
In this episode, the town is dealing with a split on Pro War [Rednecks] and Anti War [Hippies] and can't make up their mind. Both sides put on a concert and Cartman devises an ingenious plot to go back in time to see how the founding fathers would of decided on the war. But unlike most shows, South Park attacked BOTH sides with a brilliant song and insults towards eachother, and then it is found that Benjamin Franklin said we should be both war hungry, and pacifistic at the same time. It is having your cake, and eating it too. I loved this episode.
Cartman ends up saving the day almost killing himself going through the extremes of getting a flashback as an alternative to doing his report. Mean while South Park adults are arguing over the war in Iraq.
The episode starts at the classroom where Mr.Garrison tells all the children that if they are against Iraq to go outside and protest. The news anchorman asks their opinions and since they suck Mr.Garrison makes them do a report. Cartman cant believe Stan, Kyle, and Kenny wants him to do it too since it was to much work for an eight year old, so he finds an alternative to the report by getting flashbacks which turns out to be in my opinion the funniest part of this episode. Meanwhile the adults go into a riot between who is right on the war and a battle of country vs rock begins.
This episode is hilarious and a great way to celebrate the hundredth episode of South Park, the end having a lot of hilarious morals such as America being built on hypocricy, thus causing the rest of the world to not hate the US, only their president and for the war, against the war, who cares, a hundred episodes!
Cartman trying to have a flashback instead of studying is a hilarious plot and South Park once again appears to be a very violent town, though the similarities between the 1770s (that SP made up) and the present were very well written and while there are a few dull moments in the episode, I can't imagine a better one to be chosen as the hundredth episode.
The War in Iraq has started, and a walkout is scheduled for South Park Elementary. Cartman and friends go on the local news, where they are asked some questions of their views on the War in Iraq. However, their answers suck, so Mr. Garrison assigns the class group projects on researching what America’s founding fathers would say of the War in Iraq. Cartman gets stupid and jumps in a pool with his TiVo, which has recorded 50 hours of the History Channel, electrifying himself and making him faint. After being rushed to the hospital, he is transported to 1770s America. This is a great way to celebrate the 100th episode of an influential, satirical TV series. The American Revolution settings appear better-drawn than the normal South Park animation, and the arguments between pro-war and anti-war – in both the present and 1770s, are funny (saying “Rabble! Rabble!” repeatedly). The episode ends with a bang, all the SP characters appearing on stage to sing a song commemorating episode 100. If you haven’t seen it, it is definitely worth watching.
