TV show description:
What began as a short film by creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone has become a hit animated comedy series. The show features the lives of four third grade boys who live in South Park, Colorado.

There’s Stanley “Stan” Marsh (voiced by Parker), who is as logical as he is responsible; green ear-cap clad Kyle Broflovski (voiced by Stone) who is also intelligent but more naïve; and Kenneth “Kenny” McCormick (Stone), whose speech is only understood by his friends and stranger yet, dies in each episode.

While the death of Kenny makes for interesting episodes, no one provides quite as much color or entertainment as the boys’ friend, Eric Cartman (Parker). This sweet-faced, plump nine-year-old little boy has an incredibly foul mouth and rude demeanor and constantly puts down his friends for their religious upbringing or economic status. Yet, he’s a leader for his friends and proves to be a savvy businessman in their times of trouble.

Episodes feature the boys getting into all sorts of mischief at home, school, and in their hometown. Parker and Stone have used the show as a platform for their own social commentary and the series has never shied away from any hot button issue that might get a laugh or stir up some controversy.

    This show kix so much ASS!!! It’s so freaking funny. Never ever cancel!!! Yes Cartman is a big part of that. But everyone else brings their own special mix to it. Really too bad Issac Hayes died. I loved Chef, he was beyond excellent. If any animated show will surpass The simpsons, then it’ll be this show. I’m really curious how they come up with some storylines. Like the kids getting high on cat urine? Or doing a big chuck of an episode in the World of warcraft? Gutsy but worked great. I’ve have really noticed the shows have gotten more out there in the past few seasons. A new season is about to start, I really wonder this season is gonna go.
