Episode Summary

This is the third episode in a series that follows each boy individually on the same night. Kyle and Ike are sent to Jewbilee while their parents go to the meteor shower party. They let Kyle bring Kenny along, as long as Kenny pretends to be Jewish while he's there. The Jew Scouts don't take kindly to non-Jews joining their ranks. The camp is led by elders from different sects of Judaism. A representative from the "Anti-Semitic" sect is cast out for favoring the prophet Haman over Moses. While the rest of the elders summon Moses from their campfire, the anti-Semite hatches a plan to trap Moses' spirit in a conch shell, just as Haman once did.moreless

Who was the Episode MVP ?

  • The worst of the meteor shower trilogy.

    I didn't think this episode was very good. I don't really like any episodes that make fun of religion, with the obvious exception of 'Trapped in the Closet' this episode was no exception, the squirts thing was incredibly boring and the fact that I know nothing about judeaism (including how to spell it) means I eventually got completely lost. The episode had it's finer points, I just can't remember them. Moses as a metallic creature was pretty funny, I wish it was secluded to 'Super Best Friends' though. This episode is not one I would rush to see again too quickly.moreless
  • Jewbilee

    With a whole new season of inventive and excellence on it's way, the creators have good episodes in their mind for the 4th season, but - unfortunately in the meantime we have to suffer through this Jewish dullness just for a leap through to the next third season parter.

    If you're like me, you will adore fixed points (like, Cat Orgy or Ike's Wee Wee (which was something good to type about))...Then you won't particularly like this episode much which is based around all the kids - the most boring episode (in my opinion) if South Park.

    :( Why can't you guys think of something good?moreless
  • I really liked this episode.

    This is one of my favourite episodes. Now you may disagree with me here but I thought this was as light hearted as South Park gets. This episode did poke fun at religion on some parts but doesn't change that fact. It was a cute twist that the bear wasn't killing the scouts but was instead taking them to her cub's birthday party. And it was kind of nice that Kenny died by sacrificing his own life to save the rest of them instead of getting struck by lightning and what not. To conclude this review this is my third favourite episode behind Towelie and Chinpokomon, which is number 1.moreless
  • Kyle, Ike, and Kenny head off to Jewbilee (that's Jew scouts). Hilarity ensues.

    Kyle, Ike, and Kenny head off to Jewbilee (that's Jew scouts). Hilarity ensues.

    There are a lot of good moments in this episode. There's a Chinese Jew, the bad guy from Tron shows up as Moses asking for macaroni pictures and popcorn necklaces, the Antisemitic sect of Judaism, etc.

    Like the two before it, this episode is very good, focusing on Kyle, and in part, Kenny.

    These three episodes all take place at the same time. They cross over into each other at least once per episode. I thought that this structure was very creative, and this 3-part episode was very good.moreless
  • Kyle takes Kenny along with him to his Jew fest.

    This episode, while not nearly the funniest, is perhaps the best written episode of the season. It is very creative although it could have been better. Kenyn goes with Kyle to Jewbilee, the fantatic Jew party. While there, an anti semetic Jew decided to unleash the bad spirit to capture Moses and initiate new world order. He succeeds at first, and stores Moses in a conch shell. Kenny finds the shell, breaks it, and Moses wastes no tiem in killing the anti semite. Kenny died by curshing the conch with his head. Not the best, but still funny and still wathable.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (6)

    • After being kicked out of jew scouts, Kenny goes to the streets and tries to get some help. While waiting, officer Barbrady's car and 3 ATF trucks go by him. They're probably going to the "religious cult" house aka Mr. Mackey's house (as shown in the previous episode that occurred in the same evening - "Two guys naked in a hot tub").

    • The number of kids in squirts constantly changes through out the ep. When they first show the squirts with their leader there are only ten of them on screen. At 6 and a half minutes in when their in a circle there are only nine. Then when they go outside there are 11. There are ten squirts 15 minutes in when 2 had been taken previously by the bear.

    • The leader of the Squirts is the ticket guy who works at the movie theater, suggesting that he is probably Jewish.

    • One part of the chant Garth uses to summon Haman has the same lyrics as the Iraqi national anthem Celine Dion sang in "Terrance and Phillip in Not Without My Anus".

    • It should be noted that Jews do not worship Moses.

    • When Kenny hit his head to break the shell, after he hit, his eyes where crossed in an X shape, when Kyle came there seconds later, one eye was open and the other was half closed, and just before everyone leaves, both his eyes are wide open.

  • QUOTES (9)

    • Squirt Leader: Okay, Squirts, let's see what you made macaroni pictures of. Ishmael?

      Squirt Leader: Good. Matthew?

      Squirt Leader: Joseph?
      Joseph: Triangle.
      Squirt Leader: Okay. Ike?
      Ike: Cokeshen.
      Squirt Leader: You don't make a macaroni picture of the Last Supper at a Jewish camp!

    • Squirt Leader: Okay, Squirts, the elders have given us a very important task tonight. We are all going to make macaroni pictures, like this one, using dry macaroni, paper, and glue.
      Squirt: How come we have to make macaroni pictures?
      Squirt Leader: Because that's what Squirts do! Now, shut your pie-hole!

    • Gerald: Tell Ike how much fun Squirts is, Kyle.
      Kyle: What? You want me to lie?
      Gerald: Yeah, lie.

    • Kyle: Mom? Can Kenny go to Jewbilee with me?
      Sheila: Uh well, Kyle, Jewbilee is sort of a special thing.
      Kyle: Oh. Kenny isn't special?
      Kenny: (Aw.)
      Sheila: No, no, you're very special, Kenny. It's just that… well, Jewbilee is… for Jewish kids.
      Gerald: You see boys, Jew Scouts is a special group that borrows a little bit from all different Jewish denominations. From the Orthodox Jews, from the Hasidic Jews, from the Northern Italy Cave Jews… But you have to believe the basic tenets of Judaism to be a Scout.
      Kyle: Kenny'll believe whatever you want him to.
      Kenny: (Yeah.)

    • Sheila Brovflofski: Kyle and Ike, be safe, and Kenny, try to act Jewish.
      Kenny: (muffled) How do you do that?

    • Jubilee Director: We have all gathered here tonight, from every chapter of Judiasm.
      Elder #1: Elder Schwartz, orthodox chapter.
      Elder #2: Elder Harris, reform chapter.
      Elder #3: Elder Garth, anti-semitic chapter.
      Jubilee Director: I've never heard of the anti- semitic chapter of Judiasm before.
      Elder Garth: We're new.

    • Moses: And let us glue paper plates together with beans inside so when you shake them they make rattling noises.
      Rabbi: Paper plate bean shakers, of couse!
      Moses: And let us put patterns of glue on the outside and sparkles so they look all nice and sparkly.

    • Moses: The impurity must depart before the great eating of carrot cake.
      Kyle: He doesn't get cake!?
      Moses: No. No cake for the impurity.

    • Moses: I demand macaroni pictures.
