I assume both Matt and Trey have seen the new Star Wars movie by now, so what did they think of it? I heard Trey had a problem with Episode 1...

Answer

And he famously let George Lucas know it at Carrie Fisher's birthday party that year.

I heard Matt talking about "Spiderman" (he saw some of the filming while we were working on the Sony lot on "Bush"), but I'm not sure if either of them have seen "Clones" yet.

Question:

May 15, 2002 - Do Matt and Trey actually draw the characters?

Do Matt and Trey actually draw the characters?

Answer

Only the first episode of South Park (and a short scene with Pip in #108) was animated by Trey and Matt (and several other people) with construction paper. Some of the earlier episodes also had a few scanned background elements that were made of construction paper as well.

Now, because the miracle of science we use MAYA by Alias Wavefront to animate the show! The pilot took 3 months to make, so it's a good thing they switched over to computers.

Most of the new characters are drawn by our Story Board crew of four using Adobe Illustrator and Corel Draw - they base these drawings on the script and Trey's explicit instructions.

Question:

May 13, 2002 - Why does Mr.Garrison have a friend or a puppet cal

Why does Mr.Garrison have a friend or a puppet called Mr.Hat?

Answer

On the most basic level, Trey had a childhood teacher who used to have a hand puppet similar to Mr. Hat (Yes, I know, disturbing).

On a somewhat deeper level, Mr. Hat represents Mr. Garrison's latent urges. His homosexuality, his racist feelings, his inner rage. Even though Garrison has come out of the closet in terms of his sexuality and prejudices, he still has some issues to work out. Mr. Hat is like his crutch, his security blanket if you will.

Besides, it was funny as all heck when Mr. Mackey got into that fight with Mr. Hat on the bus to Arkansas in Episode #317 "The Brown Noise."
