    Strange occurences continue in South Park as Kathie Lee Gifford comes to town to present Cartman with an award for writing the best environmental essay (even though all the other kids know he cheated). Mr. Garrison's puppet psychosis is explained, and Cartman tries to bulk up for the occasion with limited success. This episode is rather mediocre as a whole, with a loosely formed plot that is still funny in parts, but never really seems to come together. It is safe to say that South Park is at its best when it tackles taboo issues, but this is still a worthy addition to the first season of the budding series.
