Frequently Asked Questions

Frequently Asked Questions. You ask them, the staff of South Park answers!

Question:

Are you planning on re-mastering old episodes?

After watching the newest episodes, watching the first season is like watching a completely different show. The difference is like night and day! Are you planning to remaster an early episode for real someday, like it was joked in "Free Hat"?

Answer

Not to toot out own horn, but the show does look pretty amazing now. (toot) High Definition allows us to do so much more with the visuals, as well as cram more jokes into the background of the show. As for the earlier episodes, we are already underway with converting them all to HD. It's a long, hard process, but quality takes time. Especially when you're adding Imperial Walkers and giant dewback lizards to every scene.

Question:

Any chance of off-season Webisodes?

This is that time I hate the most, the longest possible time before more new episodes of South Park. Would you guys ever consider making off-season Webisodes or make a Spinoff series that airs in between South Park Episodes?

Answer

I know it's tough. Several months without new episodes of South Park. I can barely stand it myself.

But don't worry. We'll be keeping it fresh here at SPS. We have some pretty cool content coming your way during the hiatus right here on this site. And as we speak, Matt and Trey are busting their ass getting "The Book of Mormon" ready for it's Broadway debut on February 24th. Even though it's not South Park, it's way better than webisodes.

Question:

Is that a Queef Sister in the new episode??

Was that a Queef Sister in the new episode "Creme Fraiche"? Are they still with Terrance and Phillip?

Answer

You got a nose for those queef sisters, buddy! And yessir, that's Katherine Queef in the orange shirt, next to her beau Phillip. It seems like those two gassy sisters are still indeed with Terrance and Phillip.

Question:

What was "Cute Kitty" referencing?

What was the "Cute Kitty" thing Cartman did in "Coon vs. Coon and Friends" a reference to? Tom and Jerry or some other old cartoon? It looked familiar.

Answer

It's an homage to the old Merrie Melodies cartoon "Feed The Kitty", a Warner Bros. classic from back in the 50s. That cartoon features a cute little kitty named Pussyfoot and a big ol' bulldog named Marc Anthony. The Coon and Cthulhu make just as cute of a duo....

Question:

Wait...when was Mysterion's identity revealed??

A big fan of Mysterion, I did not follow when exactly his true identity was revealed to be Kenny... Help me out FAQ guy, i think i've seen all episodes and don't find the time to go through all of them again... right now at least.... HELP ME!!!! :P Do this and i'll gift ya a six pack of beer... A local brewed pack.....

Answer

Did you fall asleep through these last couple episodes dude?? I mean...Come on!! I can help you out, but you gotta promise to pay attention this time (and overnight that beer). Kenny was revealed to be Mysterion in the episode "Mysterion Rises" (1412), when Captain Hindsight was threatening all the boys with a gun. You can watch the scene below...then watch the next scene, where Mysterion reveals his special powers.

Question:

Can you guys make a ManBearPig costume?

I think it would be great if you guys could get a Manbearpig costume produced. Any chance of this happening before Halloween next year?

Answer

Considering Manbearpig is the single greatest threat to our planet and that his very existence may be the end to the human race as we know it, I don't think that would be a good idea. I'm cereal. I mean, can you imagine how Al Gore would react if he saw tons of ManBearPigs walking down the street on Halloween?? There'd be some super-cereal trouble.

Question:

Cartman riding Cthulhu, what's that referencing?

Hey FAQovasaurus, What is the scene where Cartman is riding Cthulhu a reference to?

Answer

Awesome question!! That's a reference to the classic Japanese anime film "My Neighbor Totoro", written and directed by Hayao Miyazaki. That's actually not the first time it's been referenced either, check out the "Imaginationland" Trilogy for more Totoro goodness. If you can't tell by the countless references to anime throughout the years, Matt and Trey are HUGE fans of Japanese culture.

Question:

Was that a "Trololo" parody??

Dear FAQ guy, In the episode "Creme Fraiche", is the theme song to Randy's cooking show a parody of the "Trololo" song?

Answer

La lalala la laaaaa....That is indeed a parody of that famous Russian tune "Trololo". I dare you to watch this and not get it stuck in your head. Creeemmmmeeee Frraiiccchheeeeeeee...

Question:

How do you do the comic book scenes? And the commercial reference??

Hey FAQ, what's up? No really; How do you guys go about doing the comic scenes? They're really cool. Also LOVE the commercial reference!

Answer

No really, we have the most talented animators, storyboard artists, and technical directors out there. Trey gives them a script description like this:

"The front page of the comic opens and we see the comic panels inside. Quickly the camera dashes to the first frame. The first panel is from the first Coon episode, but more comic book stylized. The newspaper machine in the foreground 'Who is Mysterion?' With Mysterion lurking in the background."

...and they make it look like what you see below. It's cereally amazing.

And glad you caught that commercial reference! For those who didn't pick up on it, that's a parody of the new LeBron James commercials where questions the backlash he's gotten from fans and asks "What Should I Do?". The Coon's answer at the end about sums it up.

Question:

Was that an ad for Sea People??

Did I pick up an ad for an "Action Elway" doll? Also, are they still selling those Sea People?

Answer

So glad you caught that!! Yep, if you pay very close attention to the comic book pages as they're being flipped, we've hidden a couple easter eggs in the advertisements. You mentioned a couple awesome ones -- Action Elway in "The Amazing Mintberry Crunch" comic, and in "The Coon", there's an ad for The Incredible Living Sea-People (a reference to Season 6's "The Simpsons Already Did It," 607). Keep in mind, you can see these easter eggs better in the widescreen, full-episode player -- it gives you all that full-screen, mintberry glory. Check that shiz out!

Question:

Did I see Chipotlaway in the Shake Weight store?

Is that Chipotlayaway in the background of the Shakeweight store? It caught my eye the second time I watched the episode.

Answer

Ahhh...I like your style! Repeated watching definitely rewards you with golden easter eggs. YES, that is a display for "Chipotlaway" in the Shake Weight department store. For those with bloody underwear and a confused look on their face, that's a reference to a product sold in "Dead Celebrities" (1308). There's also a display for the MegaScrub from "Dead Celebrities", as well as the Margaritaville drink maker from the episode "Margaritaville" (1303).

ps - It's a lot easier to see these references in the widescreen, full-episode player. Check it out...

Question:

Was that Stephen Hawking's voice?

Was that Stephen Hawking's voice? And who voiced it?

Answer

As much as I'd like to say we got Stephen Hawking to come in and do a guest voice, that didn't happen. It's actually just a computer generated voice. Most newer computers have something like this built in so try it for yourself on your PC or Mac - It's usually in the control panel or system preferences under accessibility options or text-to-speech.

Question:

Was the DVDA song "Now You're A Man" ever in an episode?

I just watched "Orgazmo" for the first time (just because i had to watch everything made by the great Trey Parker and Matt Stone) and when I listened to the intro song "Now You're A Man" by DVDA, i kept thinking i saw it in a South Park episode. Was it or am i just crazy?

Answer

No, you're not crazy at all. In fact, your doubly awesome for 1) your quest to watch all things Matt and Trey, and 2) more importantly, your super-fan recollection. Yes, that DVDA song actually WAS in an episode waaaaayy back in the the day, all the way back in Season 1's "Big Gay Al's Big Gay Boat Ride" (104). It plays over the end credits of the episode. It's glorious and you can watch that right here. And here's a little DVDA bonus, you can also hear their original song "I Am Chewbacca" playing over the credits of "Starvin' Marvin In Space" (311).

Question:

What did Stan mean by that "snowman" comment?

I've got a question about "The Simpsons Already Did It". In the opening scene when they are putting together the snowman, did it refer to anything when Stan said "when has that ever happened, accept for that one time?"?

Answer

Ahhhh....great question! YES, that is referring to something very significant. Before South Park was ever a television show, Matt and Trey made a short film featuring the boys called "Jesus vs. Frosty" (also known as "The Spirit of Christmas"). In the short, the boys put a top hat on their snowman's head and it turns into a murderous snowman monster. Long story short, Jesus comes through in the end to save the day. So yep, that scene was a little inside joke.

Question:

Did I just catch one of the Goth Kid's names??

Hey whoever gets stuck answering these things, I was wondering, is the hair flipping Goth's name Luis? I just watched the new Mysterion episode and I think I heard the taller goth kid call him Luis, but it was too muffled for me to make out. Also, are there decided names for the other Goth kids? The only one I know is Henrietta for the big boned girl.

Answer

I hate to disappoint, since it'd be pretty sweet to finally have names for those Goth Kids. But no, he doesn't say "Luis" there, he says "wuss". Just to be safe, I even double-checked since it does sound pretty muffled (I've attached a script excerpt below). As you said, the only Goth Kids' name that we know is the girl's -- Henrietta. The other ones just don't want to give into the conformist process of being labeled.

Mysterion turns around.

CREEPY MAN
Cthulhu sees all. Hears all. The Dark Lord wants us to dispense of this one, kids. Give us a hand.

GOTH KID 1
What? Dude, I don't wanna kill anybody.

GOTH KID 2
We're Dark Lord minions now, wuss. What'dya THINK we'd be doing?

GOTH KID 1
Ugh, what-evs.

The people all converse on Mysterion, he gets into a defensive pose, but looks panicked.

Question:

Who the hell is Mintberry Crunch?!

Who the hell is Mintberry Crunch?!

Answer

Ahhhh...the elusive Mintberry Crunch. If you watched the most recent episode, "Mysterion Rises", you should be able to figure out the identity of all the boys. But since he's more of a background character, I can help you out. That blond kid's name is Bradley Biggle. And when he's not packing the Gulf full of flavor, he's hanging around in the boys' 4th grade class. Bradly's been a background character forever, it's nice to see him get a big breakout role. Mintberryyy Crrr-uuuunch!!

Question:

Who's laying next to Willzyx on the moon?

In episode "Coon 2: Hindsight", why is there a dead guy next to Jambu the Orca Whale (aka Willzyx)?

Answer

Because a certain celebrity really wanted to get away -- far away -- where no one on Earth could rip on him any more. Stan and Kyle helped him get there, at the end of the episode "201". I know we're gonna get a floodgate of angry FAQers about this, but yep, that's Tom Cruise up there next to Willzyx. (Find a friend who still has it on their DVR!)

Question:

Who did Michael Jackson's voice?

hey FAQ dude...I know it's been so long but I'm just wondering who did Mr. Jefferson's voice in the episode "The Jeffersons" and also in "Dead Celebrities"... whoever he is, all I could say is that he's good! I mean, he really copied Michael Jackson's voice there! He could even sing! Good stuff!

Answer

Hey, it's never too late to go up MJ's wishing tree. That crazy-talented dude is Trey Parker. And yeah, he does amazing impersonations -- whether it's Kanye, Elton John, or Michael Jackson...the dude rocks it.

Question:

Hasn't Butters been kissed before?

In episode 313, "Hooked on Monkey Fonics," when Rebecca turns into a slut, she kisses Butters. So then won't episode 1309, "Butters' Bottom Bitch," not make sense at the beginning when everyone says Butters has never kissed a girl before?

Answer

That's a good question, but it's been asked/answered about a billion times. I'm going to redirect you to our new, "MOST FREQUENTLY ANSWERED QUESTIONS" section. It's on the main FAQ page, right above the "Archive". It has all the most common asked questions and answers, and I'll be updating it with more as we go. Definitely worth checking out before you ask a question, because if you're asking something that's in here, I'm not gonna answer it. Check it out!
