    Ike's Canadian parents come to take him home to Canada. Kyle sees how this affects his mother and father and him and Stan, and Cartman, go to Canada to try and get Ike back. Will they succeed?

    It was good. I thought it was weird how it turned into a Wizard of Oz parody, but overall it was pretty funny and had a good plot. This episode is not one of their best episodes or anything, but it is an enjoyable way to spend 22 minutes of your time. Final grade for this episode is an A. Enjoyable episodes methinksmoreless
  • Better than the actual Wizard of Oz by far!

    It's not the most original or outrageously funny episode, but it's loads better than Mr. Hanky. Sorry, it's true. Apart from the not-so-funny Chinese pilot antics, once the boys arrive in Canada to find the Prime Minister it justs keeps getting better. I loved the Canadian the others all say is a "total dick," and the French Canadians were priceless. Plus I just always laugh at how South Park animates the Canadians, like they're a totally foreign species compared with Americans. Top it off with another brief appearance by Suddam, and bam, you've gt a great episode. Best Christmas episode by far.moreless
  • Christmas classic.

    The Broflovski family is dealt a devastating blow when Ike's Canadian birth parents show up unexpectedly and want their baby back. When the townspeople decide to forego Christmas gifts and take up a collection to get Ike home to South Park, the boys are distraught. Before all the money for their Christmas presents gets spent, they hightail it to Canada to bring Ike home themselves. i want to watch it over and over again. I need to get this on my ipod because tis so awsome. I want another Christmas special liek this one in this series. Merry Christmas!! (in canada)moreless
  • One of my all-time faves in South Park history!

    This is the best ending to a South Park season ever. While the ending to Season 11 DOES rival this episode, "It's Christmas In Canada" still prevails.

    I love how this episode parodies The Wizard of Oz without actually ripping on it. The plot is perfect and something Matt and Trey needed to address came to light.... Ike's biological parents. And they just so happen to come at Christmas time, which causes a predicament for all the children whose parents want to be charitable and help the depressed Broflovskis.

    The best coincedence of all is that Saddam Hussein actually was caught the Sunday before this episode aired. I love how things like that work out, especially for an episode as awesome as that.

    They even made a new face for Cartman when he started to cry... thus proving that Cartman talks a lot of crap but is really a little weakling crying for his mom in Canada.

    Absolute favorite quote:

    Cartman:"You f*cking a**h***! This is all your fault!"

  • Ding dong they caught Saddam!

    In this episode the boys miss their Christmas adventure so they can go to Canada and rescue Kyles Adopted baby brother Ike from his REAL parents, and there is an entire "Wizard of Oz" parody throughout the episode with the Munchkin like Canadians breaking into song and "the only road". This was a fantastic episode and I loved "Scott the ****", how crappy the Canada animation was, Cartmans ass being kicked by Kyle, and Saddam being caught 3 days after he really was, great job writing this so fast "South Park"!moreless
