Question:

September 30, 2009 - In 'Cartman's Silly Hate Crime', who was that girl

In 'Cartman's Silly Hate Crime', who was that girl with the pink furry coat? She reminded me of Kenny...hoods and death...

Answer

Her name is Lizzy, and you're parallel to Kenny is not all that crazy. She dies in that episode but if you look for her, she can be seen on the playground and in the background of a number of later episodes.

Question:

September 30, 2009 - In the episode when Kyle takes the Homeschool Girl

In the episode when Kyle takes the Homeschool Girl to the prom and then this old Singer is singing on the stage...What is the song's name?

That's rock god Dio performing his big solo hit "Holy Diver." The perfect prom song.

Question:

September 29, 2009 - In what episode did Kenny blow up when holding a s

In what episode did Kenny blow up when holding a stick of dynamite in a flashback?

Answer

That's a classic clip from Season 2's "Summer Sucks," where Kenny gets blown to bits in a pre-school flashback. It's also the only episode where there's not snow on the ground. Check it out!

Question:

September 24, 2009 - South Park is awesome, and I had noticed something

South Park is awesome, and I had noticed something in the crowd in Big Gay Al's Big Gay Boat Ride -- when Uncle Jim and the guy with one arm and a hole in his neck were talking, I thought I saw a white version of Token sitting behind them. Is it??

Answer

Look at you, finding a nice little hidden eater egg! Yes, that is indeed a white Token sitting behind Jimbo, Ned, and Mr. Garrison in the bleachers. The animators occasionally throw in these little surprises (like Visitors and background characters) into the show. It's always fun when the fans find them.

Question:

September 24, 2009 - I'm amazed that my two favorite characters, Randy

I'm amazed that my two favorite characters, Randy and Cartman, have never really had any direct dialog with each other. Why haven't they?

Answer

You're right, Cartman and Randy haven't had much interaction face-to-face. And I don't blame them, their first big conversation all the way back in "Chickenlover" was pretty painful.

Question:

September 23, 2009 - Are there any plans to ever make South Park: Bigge

Are there any plans to ever make South Park: Bigger, Longer, Uncut available for free streaming?

Answer

We've been working our butts off behind the scenes to try and bring you BLU right here on the site. There's a lot of legal mumbo-jumbo we're fighting through, but keep your fingers crossed, it very well might be on SPS very soon...

Question:

September 23, 2009 - I may be wrong but it's been a long time since we'

I may be wrong but it's been a long time since we've seen Mephesto, and if we have seen him, when was the last time we saw him? Or more importantly, his little friend Kevin?

Answer

Well, it has indeed been a long time since Mephesto's been a main character in a show--and even longer since his little monkey friend has played a huge role. But Mephesto did resurface briefly in this season's "Eat, Pray, Queef" (1305) during the huge sing-a-long. And you know what? He's still got it.

Question:

September 23, 2009 - Ohhhh jesuzzzzzzz chrissssstt! Who does the voice

Ohhhh jesuzzzzzzz chrissssstt! Who does the voice of Mr. Slave, and will he be in any upcoming episodes? chris

Answer

The gaytastic voice of Mr. Slave is done by John Hansen. He been a member the South Park staff for a very long time and is currently the Production Supervisor on the show. As for upcoming cameos, you're just going to have to wait and see.

Question:

September 23, 2009 - How come you guys still consider the episodes that

How come you guys still consider the episodes that will be released in about two weeks to be part of season 13... even though there is a GIANT gap in time between now and the last episode?

Answer

Because they ARE part of the same season. All new seasons have 14 episodes total--which is divided up into two big "show runs." Seven episodes are made in each show run, one right after the other, seven weeks straight. The staff and crew then go on a long summer hiatus in between show runs, hence that GIANT gap. We call the seven upcoming shows "Season 13B"--the back half of what we started in March. New episodes always come out in March and October.

Question:

September 22, 2009 - Hi! I've been watching the show now for years, si

Hi! I've been watching the show now for years, since season two I guess, and I've seen every episode - but, as far as I can remember, DogPoo NEVER says or does anything. Is DogPoo ever going to speak? Or will he even get his own episode or something, like Butters got one?

Answer

Although he's been in the boys' class forever -- all the way since Season 1 -- Dog Poo has really never been much more than a "prop". However, he has spoken on one occasion, in Season 6's "Professor Chaos". Mostly to express his discontent with being just a prop.

Question:

September 22, 2009 - What has been the hardest scene in South Park to a

What has been the hardest scene in South Park to animate (so far)?

Answer

That's a hard question to answer. A lot of scenes and episodes have been particularly challenging for the crew for different reasons. Keep in mind, almost every single episode is animated start-to-finish in 6 days. So the more impressive and massive a scene looks, the more difficult that is to create. Off the cuff, the Imaginationland Trilogy was particularly challenging -- especially the large war and fighting scenes. Not only were their insane quantities of characters that had to be animated, but an entire army of new characters needed to be created and approved. Those Lord of the Rings-esque fight scenes are particularly impressive.

That said, if you ask any one animator, story board artist, or crew member, I bet they'll give you a different answer.

Question:

September 17, 2009 - Is it true that Cartman's middle name is Theodore?

Is it true that Cartman's middle name is Theodore? And if so, in what episode do they first mention it?

Answer

Yes sir. Eric Theodore Cartman. We first learn this fun fact in Season 2's "Roger Ebert Should Lay Off the Fatty Foods," when Cartman is auditioning for the Cheesy Poofs Talent Show.

Question:

September 17, 2009 - I saw a clip of South Park where they were in Mr.

I saw a clip of South Park where they were in Mr. Garrison's class and Jay Leno came to visit and Stan, Kyle, Cartman, and Kenny were making fun of Jay Leno's chin. And then he got all pissed off and used his chin to deport himself. It was hilarious, but I've seen every episode of south park and I don't ever remember that scene from an episode. Can you please explain?

Answer

That clip actually ISN'T from an episode. It was made for exclusively Jay Leno's show around Thanksgiving of 1997 -- during the first season of the show. It was made at the exact same time "Starvin Marvin" was in production, hence it's association with that episode in the clip info. Luckily, we keep it mega-reals and have that short right here.

Question:

September 17, 2009 - I'm a big fan of the show, and after watching some

I'm a big fan of the show, and after watching some of the older episodes I came across the show in which the boys try to breed a pig and an elephant together. I'm just wondering, are we ever going to see Kyle's elephant again?

Answer

New episodes are currently being written as we speak, so there's really no telling what future will hold. But Kyle does care deeply for that pet -- he's actually kept a picture of the elephant and him in his bedroom all the way up through current episodes.

Question:

September 16, 2009 - Which Primus song plays near the end of the Tooth

Which Primus song plays near the end of the Tooth Fairy money episode? i know that's Les Claypool. thanx!

Answer

Good ear, and you're right...that song at the end of "Tooth Fairy Tats" (402) is actually a bit of "Pork Soda" by Primus. It comes off their 1994 album of the same name.

Question:

September 16, 2009 - Hi! Can you please tell me who sang the "Gay fish

Hi! Can you please tell me who sang the "Gay fish" song?? and who is the lyrisist?? I have heard that it was written n sung by Kanye. Thanks! Leela

Answer

Yo Leela, I know you just asked a question and all, and I'mma let you finish, but that song was actually written and sung by Trey Parker. Best song of the year.

Question:

September 16, 2009 - Great job Trey, Matt, and the South Park crew for

Great job Trey, Matt, and the South Park crew for your 4th emmy award! What 3 other episodes won an emmy?

Answer

Thanks!! We're all super-pumped over here about the win. Currently, South Park has also won Emmy's for "Best Friends Forever" (904), "Make Love, Not Warcraft" (1008), and "Imaginationland: The Movie" (1110, 1111, & 1112).

Question:

September 16, 2009 - Hey there! I love this show! I was just wondering,

Hey there! I love this show! I was just wondering, who is that random kid in Bebe's Boobs Destroy Society? You know, the kid with brown hair and a greenish colored shirt who says something in Cartman's basement right before the huge ape fight? I don't think I've seen him in anything else, so I was just wondering who he is. Thanks!

Answer

His name is never revealed in the show, but in the scripts he's known as Smores (he also wears a Snacky Smores shirt). He's actually been a background character in a number of episodes, although you may have confused him with Dog Poo (they look kinda similar). Prior to this episode, he's actually had one word of dialogue in "The Wacky Molestation Adventure" (416), but this is his first "big" speaking role in the show.

Question:

September 16, 2009 - South Park is the most awesome show ever. I'm supe

South Park is the most awesome show ever. I'm super cereal! In which episode is it that the doctor keeps saying to the patient that he has no time? (forgot who the patient was :I)

Answer

It was Cartman, and he desperately needed a time transplant. This intense medical drama unfolds in "The Biggest Douche in the Universe" (615). Watch it now, you're running out of time...

Question:

September 10, 2009 - In season 4 in the episode "Cartman Joins NAMBLA",

In season 4 in the episode "Cartman Joins NAMBLA", theres something that flashes across the bottom of the screen at the beginning of the episode when the boys are playing the Investigative Reports With Bill Curtis Game. What was is that flashes across the bottom of the screen?

Answer

Wow. You've got a pretty fantastic eye there. There's a one-frame flash of the top of Mr. Hankey's head (as well as his wife Autumn) on the bottom of the screen. There are occasional mistakes like this that slip through the cracks every once in a while -- but hey, that's part of the joy of making a show start-to-finish in 6 days!

Question:

September 10, 2009 - What is the name of the song that KoRn plays at th

What is the name of the song that KoRn plays at the end of the episode where KoRn helped stop the pirate ghosts, er ghost pirates...?

Answer

Holy pirate ghosts! That would be Korn's hit song "Falling Away From Me." Great tune.

Question:

September 10, 2009 - Do the Goth kids, other than Henrietta, have names

Do the Goth kids, other than Henrietta, have names? I'm not sure how many times you've been asked this, but I'd like to know....Oddly, and kinda sadly, enough, there's been fighting among fans about said topic. heh.....

Answer

As of right now, the Goth kids don't have names -- names are just part of the conformist plan to make people into sheep. As you mentioned, we do learn in "Raisins" (714) that the Goth Girl is named Henrietta, but in the script, their just called the Goth kids. Here's a scene from "The Ungroundable" (1214), where all of the Goth kids are present. Right from the script:

INT. GOTH GIRLS' ROOM -- NIGHT

The goth kids are hanging out in the Goth Girl's room, smoking and listening to Goth music. Hair flip blows some smoke and taps his cigarette on an ashtray on the floor.

TALL GOTH
I walked into the cafeteria today... Rebecca Miller AND Phillip Rust were dressed like Vampires drinking Clamato juice with four kids from the football team...

LITTLE GOTH
Jesus...

HAIR FLIP GOTH
It's like there's more Vampire kids every freakin' day... Why is this happening? I mean, why now?

TALL GOTH
Doesn't matter WHY. Pretty soon the whole school is going to be an endless HIVE of conformist happy go lucky vampire wannabes.

GOTH GIRL
It seems like that preppie Mike McKowski kid started all this. Maybe he's the way to stopping it.

HAIR FLIP GOTH
What do you mean?

GOTH GIRL
I MEAN... What do you do when you want to change vampires back to normal? You get rid of the HEAD VAMPIRE.

The goth kids look at each other.

Question:

September 09, 2009 - in an episode, i forget which one, stan says he wa

in an episode, i forget which one, stan says he was a leader of a cult once what episode is he a leader of a cult?

Answer

Stan mentions that cult-leading fact in "Bloody Mary" (914), and he's referring to his role in "Trapped in the Closet" (912). I recommend you check out that episode to see what he's talking about.

Question:

September 09, 2009 - What's the name of the song when Ike and his kinde

What's the name of the song when Ike and his kindergarden teacher look at each other and fall in love with?

Answer

That's the 80's classic "I Can't Fight This Feeling Anymore" by REO Speedwagon. But come to think of it, is there any better song in the world for a toddler-teacher-love-making montage?

Question:

September 09, 2009 - I need help settling a debate with my husband. Is

I need help settling a debate with my husband. Is there an episode where Mr. Mackey loosened his tie and his head deflated to normal size? I say there is, but my husband says I'm crazy.

Answer

Tell your husband to start puckering up. There certainly IS an episode where that happens (and it does only happen once) -- it's an old classic from Season 2's "Ike's Wee Wee". He actually spends a good portion of the episode with a normal sized head. Check it out here!

Question:

September 03, 2009 - New episodes are coming in October, right? I can'

New episodes are coming in October, right? I can't watch them on TV so I was wondering when they will be on Southparkstudios.com? :)

Answer

Yes, all the new episodes will be right here -- in glorious, streaming HighDef. The new episode pants party begins on October 7th, so make sure to tune in.

Question:

September 03, 2009 - Are Cartman and Butters best friends?

Are Cartman and Butters best friends?

Answer

You mean Psychic Boy and Ghost Pal? This clip is probably the closest they've ever been to being BFFs. Although they've had a lot of adventures together (see: AWESOM-O, Casa Bonita, Super Fun Time) but I'm pretty sure they wouldn't consider themselves best friends.

Question:

September 03, 2009 - Will Craig ever get a last name?

Will Craig ever get a last name?

Answer

His last name is actually "Tucker", a factoid we learned in last season's "Pandemic" (1210). He also has a pet guinea pig named "Stripe" and really, really enjoys flipping people off.

Question:

September 02, 2009 - Hey! Just wondering, what's the song in "Up the Do

Hey! Just wondering, what's the song in "Up the Down Steroid" when Cartman is trying to look a handicap? Thanks.

Answer

That's a classic 80s jam by Paul Engemann called "Push It to the Limit". The song was used in similar montage fashion in the flick Scarface.

Question:

September 01, 2009 - I remember that a wallpaper was made of "The last

I remember that a wallpaper was made of "The last pizza party" in the episode "Margaritaville", with a gold border around it. I looked throughout the whole site and I can't seem to find it. Where is it?

Answer

Those wallpapers live in the "Crap" section of our website. Follow this: Crap > Downloads > Wallpapers. It's like a Couric-filled treasure chest in there. Here's a link right to it...download away!

Question:

September 01, 2009 - Wheres Halfy nowadays?

Wheres Halfy nowadays?

Answer

Probably still not having sex, as usual. The last time I remember seeing that half-dude was very briefly on stage with the Pro-War people in "I'm A Little Bit Country" (701).
