Question:

June 25, 2002 - I saw 'Now Without My Anus' for the 1st time on Co

I saw 'Now Without My Anus' for the 1st time on Comedy Central Sunday at 2:30 A.M. I don't understand why it was banned. Was it because it pissed a lot of Canadians off, or was it because of all the gas-passing going on?

Answer

It wasn't banned, people were so upset because Matt and Trey told them that they would learn who Cartman's dad was, when they aired the T&P Special on an April Fools the fans went a little crazy. It hasn't aired since because it pissed so many people off!

Question:

June 19, 2002 - Since it's told that SP animation is now computeri

Since it's told that SP animation is now computerized, then makes me wonder about Chef. How come whenever Chef walks sideways, his face and body is still facing straight? Also, if his body is facing sideways sometimes when walking, then his face is not sideways with his body. Why is that?

Answer

Trey has never liked the way Chef looked when he turns profile, so he's never been animated in profile.

Chinpokomon is the names of the little characters that the boys become additcted too. They're a parody of "Pokemon" which means "Pocket Monters" in Japanese. Chin Chin is the Japanese word for "penis" it's kind of like our parents calling our nauty bits "wee wee" or "noodle".

Question:

June 03, 2002 - Did you use the same animation program to create S

Did you use the same animation program to create South Park: Bigger, Longer, and Uncut? Are there any changes you made to the production process?

Answer

We used Alias/Wavefront's Power Animator on BL&U, the same program we used during the first four seasons of South Park.

We've been using Alias' Maya software since the beginning of Season Five (#102 - "It Hits the Fan").

And to answer your second question, the movie definitely changed the way we produce the show. You may have noticed that the animation is not as rough and crude as in the earlier seasons.

And you thought your eyes were playing tricks on you. Check out the first season of The Simpsons and compare the animation to how it looks now. Things evolve...
