Question:

January 29, 2010 - Which is the episode where 'Mrs. Garrison' becomes

Which is the episode where 'Mrs. Garrison' becomes a lesbian?

Answer

Garrison discovers her feminine side in the appropriately titled "D-Yikes!" from Season 11. In addition to lots of hot scissoring, the episode is also a ripe parody of the movie "300."

Question:

January 29, 2010 - I'm a loyal South Park watcher/kid and why don't y

I'm a loyal South Park watcher/kid and why don't you guys have that one movie on your website?? I'm not talking about Imaginationland -- Im talking about the one with the Terrance and Philip movie

Answer

You mean "Bigger, Longer, and Uncut"? That movie doesn't have a permanent home on SPS because it was actually produced by Paramount, so they own it, not us. You can imagine the legal mumbo-jumbo that goes along with that. However, we have -- and will continue to -- make efforts to get BLU here for you all to watch. It was actually featured on our site not that long ago (back in September), and it was glorious. In the mean time, Netflix that bad boy.

Question:

I have two questions: 1. Will there ever be an episode to do with Australia? 2. Will Chef ever return or Darth Chef? We all want him back!

Answer

There has ALREADY been an episode with the fine planet of Australia -- "Starvin' Marvin in Space" (311). Chippy, Chip, Choorah! As for your second question, who knows? When it comes to chocolate salty balls, anything is possible.

Question:

How come Cartman could beat up the midget in episode 1101 but not Wendy in episode 1209?

Answer

Dr. Nelson's got no reach.

Question:

January 28, 2010 - How did South Park start? What was the original

How did South Park start? What was the original idea?? And how did you come up with all the characters? -Sophia

Answer

South Park started as a stop-motion animated short made my Matt Stone and Trey Parker called "Jesus vs. Frosty." A few years later they produced "The Spirit on Christmas," for a friend who sent it out as a Christmas card. The concept was pretty much the same -- 4 foul-mouthed kids living in a wacky town where things like Jesus battling Santa was an everyday possibility. The characters names were slightly mixed up and the animation was obviously much cruder. As for coming up with all the amazing characters, that's again props to Matt and Trey. They've been with the show since day one and still write/direct/produce every episode.

Question:

January 28, 2010 - From the FAQs last week: "Amazingly, yes...that le

From the FAQs last week: "Amazingly, yes...that legendary TV writer/creator was on our staff for part of Season 7. Fun fact: He actually does the voice for Ben Franklin in "Cancelled" (704)." (**Don't you mean "I'm A Little Bit Country" ep. 701? **)

Answer

Yes, you are absolutely correct. Norman Lear does the voice for Ben Franklin in "I'm A Little Bit Country" (701), not in "Cancelled" -- although Lear was a consultant on "Cancelled" as well. Thanks for catching that typo.

Question:

January 28, 2010 - Are Timmy and Jimmy still a part of the Crips?

Are Timmy and Jimmy still a part of the Crips?

Answer

Timmy and Jimmy are Crips for life. I mean, come on.

Question:

Is there an episode that shows somebody doing graffiti in South Park?

Answer

This might surprise you, but Butters has actually gotten a little bad-ass with graffiti. He's quite the rebel. Check it out in the shit-fueled episode "It Hits the Fan" (502).

Question:

Question:

plz can u tell me in what episode Mr. Garrison writes a novel?

Answer

Sure thing. Mr. Garrison (pen name: Ethan F. Garrison) writes his best-selling novel "In the Valley of the Penises" in "Cherokee Hair Tampons" (407). It's penis-tastic.

Question:

January 21, 2010 - Why does the Loch Ness Monster need tree fiddy?

Why does the Loch Ness Monster need tree fiddy?

Answer

So he can buy more girl scout cookies. Der.

Question:

January 21, 2010 - Hey! I'm a kid who hopes to get in to animation s

Hey! I'm a kid who hopes to get in to animation some day and I was wondering what program you guys use.

Answer

Hey young whipper-snapper!! This question has been answered a couple times before, but I couldn't ignore such youthful excitement. We use a kick-ass 3D animation program called Autodesk's Maya for most of the animation. Unfortunately we use about 1% of its awesome power to animate the show.

Question:

January 21, 2010 - Is the teacher from "Quest for Ratings" also the s

Is the teacher from "Quest for Ratings" also the shop class teacher who has trouble getting over his dead girlfriend? Love the robo-trippin clip, classic.

Answer

No, they aren't actually. I think you're suffering from what we call ACC (Ancillary Character Confusion) -- it's a mild symptom that can be treated quite easily with higher doses of South Park. The wood shop teacher with the dead girlfriend is Mr. Adler. You can recognize him by his signature band-aid and distaste for people "screwing around." The Audio/Visual teacher is Mr. Meryl. You can recognize him by his signature mustache and addiction to cough syrup.

Question:

January 21, 2010 - Do Jennifer Lopez kisses really taste like tacos a

Do Jennifer Lopez kisses really taste like tacos and burritos?

Answer

Each kiss is like a #3 combo at La Taco.

Question:

January 20, 2010 - With Cartman's mom having sex all the time, how is

With Cartman's mom having sex all the time, how is it she never gets pregnant? And if she does get pregnant, would she have an abortion? And if she does have an abortion, would Cartman use the stem cells to make yet another Shakies Pizza?

Answer

Yes, Yes, and because. Ms. Cartman never gets pregnant because she's a hermaphrodite, as we learned here. Meaning, she's actually Cartman's FATHER. If she did manage to get pregnant, however, she most definitely would have an abortion. I mean, she tried to have Cartman aborted and he was 8 years old. And yes, Cartman would absolutely, without a doubt, use those stem cells to build another Shakey's Pizza. That's a no-brainer.

Question:

January 15, 2010 - In the episode "City on the Edge of Forever", that

In the episode "City on the Edge of Forever", that kid who leaves the bus and gets eaten by the black monster, is he wearing a Star Trek uniform thingy??

Answer

Nice eye, Mr. Picard.  Yes, he's wearing a red Star Trek uniform -- and if you know the show at all, extras in the red shirts were always the first (and usually only) cast members to die.  

Question:

January 15, 2010 - Do the rednecks ever get their jobs back?

Do the rednecks ever get their jobs back?

Answer

Not as long as people keep taking them.

Question:

January 15, 2010 - Hi boys, loyal female fan here... I was just wonde

Hi boys, loyal female fan here... I was just wondering if, other than Wendy on occasion, are you planning on doing any episodes in the future that are based around a female character that isn't a bitch, whore, hideously ugly or previously a man?

Answer

I'm not sure if that's physically possible.  I mean, you just took out all the best things we can write about.  I will say, however, that none of the future episodes have been written yet.  The crew comes back mid-February to start working on some new ideas, so perhaps, just perhaps, there is a chance...

Question:

January 15, 2010 - This kid and I have a bet about the brown noise. H

This kid and I have a bet about the brown noise. He says it's the note, I say it's the noise. I went to southparkstudios.com and it says that the episode is the "Brown Noise" and they say Cartman found the brown noise, but the kid says that on wikipedia, its the note. I argued that the creators would know and on THE ACTUAL WEBSITE that it says "noise" and that no tags say "note." Who is right?? By the way this show is awesome.

Answer

If you guys think any harder about this, I think you're both gonna crap your pants.  The answer is "brown NOISE."  Just to be sure, I searched the entire script for "World Wide Recorder Concert" (317) and there is not one single mention of "brown note" anywhere.  

You win.  Tell your friend he's full of mung.

Question:

January 14, 2010 - Is it true Norman Lear helped write some episodes

Is it true Norman Lear helped write some episodes for the show?

Answer

Amazingly, yes...that legendary TV writer/creator was on our staff for part of Season 7.  Fun fact:  He actually does the voice for Ben Franklin in "Cancelled" (704).  

Question:

January 14, 2010 - Is there going to be an episode which would be a p

Is there going to be an episode which would be a parody of the new film "Avatar"? That would be such a great episode!

Answer

As I mentioned, none of the new episodes are written yet, so who knows.  But as we already saw, the film pissed Cartman off.  Everyone knows the Smurf idea was his.

Question:

January 14, 2010 - In which episode does Chef say "I wanna make love

In which episode does Chef say "I wanna make love to your asshole"? Best line ever.

Answer

Agreed.  Chef starts acting all child-molesty in "The Return of Chef" after he joins (and gets brainwashed by) the Super Adventure Club.  Here's that clip you're talking about. It's a classic.

Question:

January 14, 2010 - What is the episode called with the planetarium an

What is the episode called with the planetarium and what season?

Answer

That's an old-school Season 2 episode called "Roger Ebert Should Lay Off the Fatty Foods."   And by the way, it's pronounced "plane-arium."  The T is silent.

Question:

January 14, 2010 - What is the meaning of life????

What is the meaning of life????

Answer

Snacky S'mores.

Question:

January 08, 2010 - In what episode does eric cartman smoke crack?????

In what episode does eric cartman smoke crack??????????

Answer

Don't be ridiculous. Cartman doesn't smoke crack. His mom smokes crack. And you can see her doing that in "Jackovasaurs" (305).

Question:

January 08, 2010 - Will Professor Chaos ever be available to us non w

Will Professor Chaos ever be available to us non winners (losers) for the xbox game? PISS IN THE ASS!!!

Question:

January 08, 2010 - How did Wendy beat up Cartman in "Breast Cancer Sh

How did Wendy beat up Cartman in "Breast Cancer Show Ever"? I am confused as to how Cartman lost. I figured I could get the real answer here.

Answer

I don't think Cartman getting his ass kicked should be that much of surprise, considering all the times he's tried to beat up people, only to wind up crying and bloody after the first punch. For more on this, please see Exhibit A, B, and C.

Still confused?

Question:

January 07, 2010 - In the episode where Cartman and the boys start a

In the episode where Cartman and the boys start a boy band, Chef mentions an effect where girls scream when they hear other girls screaming. Which effect is this?

Answer

Durrr...didn't your science professor teach you this in college?? It's called the "Garmlich Effect." The law of physics states that if one girl screams for something, it will make other girls scream, and then it grows exponentially until all girls within a five mile radius are screaming.

I mean, come on! This is simple science we're talking about here.

Question:

January 07, 2010 - What's the episode where the man asks the kids "wh

What's the episode where the man asks the kids "where the man touched you" using the dummy doll??

Answer

You're looking for Detective Jarvis and his little grey doll. This is from the episode "The Return of Chef" (1001), where Chef joins the Super Adventure Club and becomes a brain-washed pedophile. And I'll give you this bonus nugget of SP gold, you can see Butters' Uncle Bud here.

Question:

January 07, 2010 - Are you guys planing to rip on Twilight because va

Are you guys planing to rip on Twilight because vampires are getting annoying

Answer

You should check out "The Ungroundable." The Goth kids share your distaste for douchebag vampire wanna-be boners.

Question:

January 07, 2010 - In the South Park Lets Go Tower Defense Play game,

In the South Park Lets Go Tower Defense Play game, there's a girl in the game named Red, who you can unlock. But in the show, as in the episode "The List", she's referred to as Rebecca. What gives?

Answer

Nothing gives. In case you hadn't noticed, names get jumbled up a lot in this show. "Red" is a nickname for Rebecca. She was also referred to as "Bertha" once in "Erection Day" (907). But her name is Red, no need to be confused buddy.
