  • One of the first of the Mr. Garrison mythology.

    In 10 seasons, Mr. Garrison has been through a lot. One of his first big moments was losing Mr. Hat. From there, he eventually came out of the closet, found Mr. Slave, had a sex change...

    Other than this one single story element, the episode doesn't do much for the series. There are a lot of good jokes here (including an appearance with Comedy Central forerunner Dr. Katz), but many of them are throwaways. This episode introduces the South Park elementary band teacher, a character that I would have liked to see a little more of.

    This episode is worth watching, but doesn't live up to later episodes.
