Question:

February 25, 2010 - Any chance for a script release of Kenny's lines?

Any chance for a script release of Kenny's lines? i love when its just solid jiberish and Stan's like 'good point'. Love the show. Props and thanks to everyone involved in making it over the years and dealing with countless complaints. And thanks to you, whoever you are, for answering our questions. I was sorry to see Issac Hayes go, but if you can't make fun of yourself, SP is probably not the show for you. Keep up the good work. Can't wait for March 17th. Blunt at my place for sure. LONG LIVE THE ZIPODS!

Answer

We can't release any scripts, but I'll do ya one better. Here's the script for one of my favorite Kenny-heavy scenes from last year's "The Ring" (1301). It's always fun to hear exactly what Kenny's saying under that hood...


EXT. BUS STOP -- MORNING
The three boys are already standing at the bus stop when Kenny walks up with his head down.

CARTMAN
Well, well, well... Here he comes. It's B.J. Makay and his best friend bear.

STAN
So how'd it go last night?

KENNY
(sighs)

Kenny sadly holds up his hand showing off his purity ring. The boys look at each other.

KYLE
What's that?

KENNY
(defeated)
A purity ring.

CARTMAN
Purity ring?

KENNY
Yeah, it's a purity ring.

KYLE
What does that mean?

KENNY
It means I'm gonna be pure and not have sex until I get married.

STAN
Dude, YOU? We thought you really wanted to have a B.J. before you got too old-

KENNY
I DID! I WAS REALLY EXCITED TO GET A B.J. BUT KNOW I HAVE TO WEAR THIS MOTHER****NG PURITY RING!

KYLE
Alright, alright, Kenny calm down. You're too young to be getting B.J.s anyway. It's GOOD you and Tammy are making a commitment to each other that isn't based on SEX.

KENNY
(folding his arms)
Yeah!

Everyone stands there for a bit and then Kenny starts to whine.

KENNY
(super whiny almost crying)
It isn't FAIR I was so close to getting a blow job and I'll never get one now - this is f***ing bullshit...

Kenny holds down his head and walks away...

Question:

February 25, 2010 - When does Timmy learn to say his turkey's name?

When does Timmy learn to say his turkey's name?

Answer

Gobbles? Timmy?? Timmy Gobbles??? Timmy adds his turkey's name to his vocabulary in Season 4's "Helen Keller! The Musical". Gobbles.

Question:

February 25, 2010 - Are all the farts we hear in South Park real or do

Are all the farts we hear in South Park real or do you use other techniques to create those sounds?

Answer

We use Spicy Chang Sauce and bean burritos mostly.

Question:

February 25, 2010 - My husband and I (both pushing 70 ... real hard!!!

My husband and I (both pushing 70 ... real hard!!!) love to catch the midnight show. We fall asleep laughing. But all we're getting lately are reruns. Granted they're still really cool but were's the new stuff? Maggie & Charles

Answer

First off, Maggie & Charles, you're the coolest 70 year olds ever. As to your question, this has been answered repeatedly, but with your old age and failing memory, I figured I'd answer it one more time: New episodes start MARCH 17th. So set your dohickeys, timepieces, and whatnots...

Question:

February 25, 2010 - First off, I love the show. i watch it every day w

First off, I love the show. i watch it every day when i get off working the graveyard shift. i was wondering if u guys were thinking about making a Twilight episode to shut up all the little kids, and to show them how stupid the movie really is.

Answer

Have you see "The Ungroundable"? With those douchey Vamp Kids??

Question:

February 25, 2010 - This will be my 5th question to you guys, hopefull

This will be my 5th question to you guys, hopefully the first to be answered: Why in "Canada on Strike" do the initials "WGA" stand for "World Canadian Bureau"? That doesn't make sense!

Answer

Looks like 5th is your lucky number, hombre! And that's a solid question too. The answer is an inside-joke of sorts if you work in the entertainment biz. Canada went on strike at the same time there was a massive, real-life Writer's Strike. I think you should look up a bit of Hollywood history to see the full answer...check out who went on strike and why they were striking. My guess is this episode will be much better after you do.

Question:

February 25, 2010 - Hi.. In the episode 'Major Boobage', there is a pi

Hi.. In the episode 'Major Boobage', there is a piece of music that caught my attention. It plays whenever Cartman is with the cats he is trying to save in his attic. Where was this music taken from? Also, is Cartman impersonating someone?

Answer

That tune you're talking about wasn't taken from anywhere, it was actually done by our uber-talented in-house music people. In the script is just says this: "TRACK in on the cats looking pitiful as OLD JEWISH STYLE SAD MUSIC PLAYS." Our people take that direction and make it into what you hear in the show.

And yes, Cartman's cat plotline an homage to the Anne Frank story. You never read The Diary of a Young Girl?

Question:

February 25, 2010 - Is Dr. Maphesto dead?

Is Dr. Maphesto dead?

Answer

What?? No! Dr. Mephesto is still alive and well, experimenting on monkeys and trying to get different animals to have sex with one another. In fact, there was a Mephesto cameo recently -- singing his heart out at the end of last season's "Eat, Pray, Queef".

Question:

February 25, 2010 - What question should I ask you?

What question should I ask you?

Answer

How about..."Wow, 13 seasons. How many shows have you done, to be exact??"

First off, what a great question. And topical too!! To date, we've done 195 episodes...which means during this upcoming show run, we will actually be hitting our 200th episode (on April 14th)! Pretty freakin' bad ass, huh?

Question:

February 22, 2010 - Hello everyone! My name is Fabrício, I'm fro

Hello everyone! My name is Fabrício, I'm from Brazil, live in a town called, Belo Horizonte. I just wanted to say that South Park is the best animation ever. I hope like the Simpsons, South Park still has many, many seasons... My English is not very good ...... sorry ........Success to all! "DON'T FORGET TO BRING A TOWEL"

Answer

Fabricio, your English is pretty darn good, and your words are like butter. Props to Belo Horizonte, and props to you! Thanks for watching!!

Question:

February 22, 2010 - How come Cartman does not go to jail after he kill

How come Cartman does not go to jail after he kills Scott Tenormen's parents?? It seems the only time cartman goes to jail is in "Whale Whores" when he goes to Japanese jail?

Answer

Come on, dude. Everyone knows that pube-related crimes are only a misdemeanor in South Park. And actually, Cartman has been to prison way before "Whale Whores" -- like in prison prison in Season 4's "Cartman's Silly Hate Crime 2000." Cartman throws a rock at Token and gets sent to the slammer for a "hate crime." He also gets locked-up in "Die Hippie, Die" for wrongfully imprisoning 63 hippies in his basement -- orange jumpsuit and all.

Question:

February 22, 2010 - When you say "the new season is starting March 17"

When you say "the new season is starting March 17", you mean I can watch the new season here @ South Park Studios on March 17 or March 18?

Answer

We mean the new season premieres on Comedy Central at 10 pm EST, and 9 pm CST. The new episodes will be posted to the site a few hours after the episode premieres on the west coast on the network. For most people that's the middle of the night. Rest assured, when you wake up Thursday morning, the new episode will be here at SPS.com. But don't miss the premiere on Comedy!

Question:

February 22, 2010 - I watched Team America today and noticed that the

I watched Team America today and noticed that the South Park clip on the home page of Stan learning to ski had the same "We're Gonna Need a Montage" song as in Team America. Which did you guys make the song for first, Team America or South Park?

Answer

The South Park ski montage from "Asspen" (603) came first. Then it got the full, extended treatment in Team America. Both are pretty damn sweet.

Question:

February 21, 2010 - What different celebrities have you had as cameos

What different celebrities have you had as cameos on your show? Because I know about George Clooney and stuff, but anyone else?

Answer

It doesn't happen that often, but there are some cool cameos peppered throughout the 13 seasons. A couple other notable ones would be Cheech and Chong lending their voice as Chief Running Pinto and Carlos Ramirez in "Cherokee Hair Tampons" (407), Jennifer Aniston as Ms. Stevens in "Rainforest Shmainforest" (301), and Natasha Henstridge as the voice of Ms. Ellen in "Tom's Rhinoplasty" (111). Most of the time, however, all celebrity voices are impersonated.....Poorly.

Question:

February 21, 2010 - In what episode do the boys wait for KFC and then

In what episode do the boys wait for KFC and then have to go carry in groceries, and Cartman stays back (being the hilarious fatty that he is) and eats all of the skin off the fried chicken in the bucket?

Answer

That would be opening to Season 9's "The Death of Eric Cartman." It was a crime so horrific that it caused the boys to totally and completely ignore Cartman altogether. And it made Kenny cry too.

Question:

February 21, 2010 - In the episode with mickey mouse and the Jonas Bro

In the episode with mickey mouse and the Jonas Brothers, who voices the Jonas Brothers?

Answer

Trey and Matt. Kevin and Nick Jonas are voiced Trey, Joe is voiced by Matt (roughly -- they switch it up on a couple lines). Trey does Mr. Mouse's voice as well. Ha ha!

Question:

February 21, 2010 - When are we gonna see the episodes that are in bet

When are we gonna see the episodes that are in between Go God Go and Go God Go VII. I think Go God Go part 4 will be the best.

Answer

My guess is you won't be seeing them any time soon...maybe not until 2546. The reason that it skips from "Go God Go" to "Go God Go XII" is because Matt and Trey wanted it to seem like a lot of time had passed since the "first" episode. Hence it being "Go God Go 12," not "Go God Go 2." ps - I also think that Part IV would be awesome, but Part X would blow your mind.

Question:

February 12, 2010 - I'm feeling some major 'I Hate My Younger Sibling'

I'm feeling some major 'I Hate My Younger Sibling' emotions today... So, that made me wonder if there were any episodes I might have missed where Shelly beats the crap out of Stan. I want to live out my rage vicariously through her...

Answer

Good call, I live vicariously through South Park on a daily basis. Probably the best all-time Shelly-Stan beat up episode is "An Elephant Makes Love to a Pig" -- all the way back from Season 1. Watch it and let that anger escape from you like a four-assed monkey....

Question:

February 12, 2010 - Was that really Jay Leno's and George Clooney's vo

Was that really Jay Leno's and George Clooney's voice in a couple of the early episodes? Or did they just say that was them?

Answer

No, that was the real deal alright. You can hear Jay Leno as himself in this Thanksgiving Special and George Clooney as Stan's gay dog Sparky in "Big Gay Al's Big Gay Boat Ride." Clooney actually did the voice of Dr. Gouache in the South Park Movie as well.

Question:

February 12, 2010 - Is there ever football (soccer) in South Park? I w

Is there ever football (soccer) in South Park? I watched a lot of episodes, and I couldn't find anything even linked to football. You know that football is a very popular sport in Europe, there is World Cup coming in a few months, so i think you can make a parody, or something about it. Cheers!!

Answer

Oh, we know all about how popular futbol is in Europe, you freakin' hooligan. (un)Fortunately, there aren't that many times it comes up in South Park, but off the bat, two clips come to mind -- this one with Gary the Mormon from "All About Mormons" (712) and twice (here and here) in "The Ungroundable" (1214).

Question:

February 11, 2010 - What are the lyrics of the song that Wendy is sing

What are the lyrics of the song that Wendy is singing in the "Something You Can Do With Your Finger" episode?

Answer

You ready for this super-cereal, SPS exclusive?? Right from the holy script for "Something You Can Do With Your Finger":

INT. CARTMAN'S HOUSE - LIVING ROOM - DAY

...Wendy smiles and nods to Schroeder who starts playing.

WENDY
(Singing and dancing really well)
Mrs. Landers was a health nut
She cooked food in a wok
Mr. Harris was her boyfriend
And had a great big
Cockadoodle doodle
The rooster just won't quit
And I don't want my breakfast
Because it tastes like
Shitzus make good house pets
They're cuddly and sweet
Monkeys aren't good to have
'cause they like to beat their


Stan, Kyle and Kenny all watch on, impressed. Cartman sits slumped over, resting his head on his hand with half-shut eyes.

WENDY (CONT'D)
(Still doing awesome)
Meeting in the office
A meeting in the hall
The boss he wants to see you
So you can suck his
Balzac was a writer
He lived with Alan Funt
Mrs. Roberts didn't like him
But that's 'cause she's a
Contaminated water
Can really make you sick
Your bladder gets infected
And blood comes out your
Dictate what I'm saying
Because it will bring you luck
And if you all don't like it
I don't give a flying ****


She finishes. Stan, Kyle and Kenny applaud loudly.

CARTMAN
Thanks Wendy... Don't call us. We won't call you either.

Question:

February 11, 2010 - What is Bebe's familly name? and Red's?

What is Bebe's familly name? and Red's?

Answer

Bebe's family name is Stevens, which we learn in "Bebe's Boobs Destroy Society" (610). Red, however, hasn't made her last name public. At least not yet...

Question:

February 11, 2010 - Who answers these questions anyways? Staff members

Who answers these questions anyways? Staff members? Or is it just one guy writing responses all day long? I wanna know my source! Greets, loyal SP pawn

Answer

I'm just one guy who works at South Park Digital -- I've been exposed to roughly a bajillion hours of South Park starting at a young age and continuing into adulthood, so I'm pretty much like Rainman when it comes to the show. Other than answering the FAQs for the US and International sites, I do a bunch of other awesome stuff to keep SPS running smooth. I would equate myself to the Mayor of Imaginationland...or Sexual Harassment Panda.

Question:

February 11, 2010 - Who is JD Salinger?

Answer

Really?? For the love of god, go read a book.

Question:

February 02, 2010 - So is Wing actually a real singer outside of the w

So is Wing actually a real singer outside of the world of South Park??? Where did you guys come across her music?

Answer

She's real, alright. Matt and Trey came across her music via the internet and fell in love with it. Actually all the music you hear in "Wing" (903) is Wing's real music -- she gave us the OK to use her stuff as long as she got to approve the cartoon image of herself (which she did). Wing is originally from New Zealand, although she's achieved world-wide fame at this point. You can check out her music at WingMusic.co.nz.

Question:

February 02, 2010 - Do u guys have a lot of questions to answer? Or yo

Do u guys have a lot of questions to answer? Or you just get one like every week or so?

Answer

Ha! No, we get A LOT of questions -- anywhere from a couple hundred to a couple thousand a day. Unfortunately, we only get a chance to answer a small percentage of the questions that come in....Which is why you shouldn't bitch and moan if your question doesn't get answered. Doesn't mean we don't love you, just that we didn't get to it that week. We also get a few hundred a week from our international sites too. Keep 'em coming...

Question:

February 02, 2010 - Ahola...I was wondering why Mrs. Cartman has glass

Ahola...I was wondering why Mrs. Cartman has glasses when she is driving in the Charlie Manson Christmas episode? Please answer oh South Park gods!!

Answer

Isn't it obvious?? Because she's a dirty slut... who has bad night vision.

Question:

February 02, 2010 - In which episode does Mr. Garrison get rid of Mr.

In which episode does Mr. Garrison get rid of Mr. Hat for good?

Answer

The tragic departure of Mr. Garrison's right-hand-man-puppet occurs in "Death Camp of Tolerance" (614), after Ms. Choksondik dies and Garrison comes back as the boys' 4th grade teacher. Garrison says that 4th grade students are "too old" for Mr. Hat, and instead introduces the very mature, very gay Mr. Slave to take his place.

Question:

February 02, 2010 - In the episode "Eek, a Penis", what is the name of

In the episode "Eek, a Penis", what is the name of the movie Cartman is reenacting?

Answer

"Mr. Cartmanez" is a parody of Edward James Olmos' character (Jaime Escalante) in the 1988 flick "Stand and Deliver." Olmos plays a high school math teacher in a rough and tough East LA school. Spoiler alert: he reaches those kids.

Question:

February 01, 2010 - What is the most FAQ?

What is the most FAQ?

Answer

Ahhhh, good question. I would say the most frequently asked FAQ is probably "Who is Mysterion?" I have answered that question like 10 times, but no one seems to care (the answer is: there is no answer, Matt and Trey are the only ones who know). Other very FAQs are "Where can I see a hoodless kenny?", "How does Kenny keep coming back to life?", and "when are Matt and Trey gonna make another South Park movie?" All good questions, but they've also been answered like a bajillion times.
