Frequently Asked Questions

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

Question:

What episode does Kenny die from laughing?

Which episode does Kenny die laughing? thank you faq guy!

Answer

Mrphh mrprh mmprhh!! Kenny actually laughs himself to death TWO times. I think the main one you're thinking of is in "Scott Tenorman Must Die" (501), where he chuckles all the way up to heaven at the sight of Cartman's little piggy dance. He also flatlines at the end of "Chickenpox" (210), after a hearty herpes-infused laugh.

Question:

What episode made you laugh the hardest?

FAQ Dude, what episode made you personally laugh the hardest?

Answer

Oh I see what you did there. You took the Facebook question that we asked you, and you turned it back around on us!! Well played, sir.

It's hard to pick a favorite, but I'll be real with you. The episode that still cracks me up the most is "Proper Condom Use" (507), followed by "D-Yikes!" (1106), "Chinpoko Mon", "Fishsticks" (1305), and "Towelie" (506) -- not necessarily in any order. There's a ton of episodes I love for different reasons, but after watching them all a billion times, those ones still make me laugh like a school girl.

Question:

What is Mr. Mackey's first name?

What is Mr. Mackey's first name?

Answer

Hard to believe, but Mr. Mackey's first name has not been revealed yet. The only hint so far was when his dad called him "Junior" in "Child Abduction Is Not Funny" (611), but since we don't know his dad's name, that doesn't help all that much. Mkay?

Question:

Why did you stop using picture cutouts of celebrities?

Is there a particular reason that you started animating celebrities instead of using the picture cutouts like you originally did? I know it was only on some celebrities but I loved the Saddam cutout and the Christina Aguilera hallucinations. I think the celebs are funnier with the real pics. Is it a rights issue?

Answer

Well, that's not really very accurate. The truth is, probably 98% of the time, celebrities are always animated. Remember Kathie Lee Gifford in "Weight Gain 4000" (102) or Patrick Duffy in "Volcano" (103)? Since the show started back in 1997, most people get the animation treatment. But as you mentioned, there are the rare exceptions -- like Saddam, Christina Aguilera (in "Timmy 2000", 404), Ben Affleck (in "How To Eat With Your Butt", 510) and Mel Gibson ("The Passion of the Jew" & "200").

To answer your question though, it's more of a personal decision by Matt and Trey than anything else. If they want to do it -- including in any future episodes -- they definitely will.

Question:

Will South Park ever make fun of itself?

Will there be an episode of South Park were they "make fun of" South Park? haha That would be funny if they were ripping on themselves.

Answer

Terrance and Phillip actually DID take a little stab at South Park, all the way back in the Season 2 opener "Not Without My Anus". They can be seen briefly watching a bit of "Cartman's Mom Is A Dirty Slut" and commenting on how lame American TV is. It's pretty cool. You can check it out here...

Question:

Will the South Park documentary be streaming online?

Will the South Park documentary airing in October be available online?

Answer

Great question, dude!  As of now, we're not sure if the documentary will be streamed on-line.  It will premiere on Comedy Central on October 2nd, at 10p EST. The camera crew was here filming everything, and we mean EVERYTHING, for most of Season 15A (the first 7 episodes).  We can't wait to see it... It's going to be EPIC!  We will keep our fingers crossed that we can stream it on the site, too.

Question:

Are you guys doing another Ultimate Fan Experience?

Is there going to be a second South Park Ultimate Fan Experience?

Answer

Our mind is still blown from that first Ultimate Fan Experience at Comic-Con...and now we're gearing up for Season 15's new episodes -- so right this second, there aren't any concrete plans in the works. But it was such a massive, amazing success, I would say it's a definite possibility. Stay tuned, we'll keep you posted as soon as we know anything...

Question:

How do I "search" the FAQs?

The directions for asking a question say "to search the archive first." So how exactly do you do that?

Answer

This is actually a great question, especially since there's no separate Search bar in the FAQ section. What you do is use the main "Search" in the top navigation bar. Type your question, click on "search", and the search results will display below. Then, look on that left hand sidebar -- you'll see a bunch of options: All, Episodes, News, FAQs, Blog Entries.

Click on "FAQs" and it will display any related Frequently Asked Questions. For example, if you wanted to know when new episodes for Season 15 started, you could search something like "Season 15" in that top search bar. You'll notice you get 14 FAQs that are associated with Season 15.

One last bit of advice, keep your search terms more general and keyword-related. The search is case-sensitive, so if you ask too-specific of a question, it probably won't return great results.

Question:

In which episode do the boys skydive?

In what episode do the boys all go skydiving?? I know I've seen this, but after looking through at least twenty episodes I'm starting to think that I just made it up.

Answer

Dude, you forgot the one cardinal rule of skydiving: "Don't forget to bring a towel!!"

You didn't make it up, I believe what you're thinking of is when the boys all jump out of a military helicopter (with Towelie) to invade Tynacorp and retrieve their Okama Gamesphere. It's not so much as "skydiving" as it is parachuting, but you get the drift.

Also, Tuong Lu Kim takes a parachute and bails on the boys after his "Shitty Airlines" plane runs out of gas. The boys don't parachute, but it IS really, really funny!

Question:

Is "The List" not playing anymore?

Is the Episode "The List" broken? Cause when i try to watch, all it does is cycle through the commercials (gets really annoying when the same commercials play 1 after another).

Answer

Yeaaaaaahhhh...sorry about that dude. You're right, that episode wasn't playing properly. We're updating some things in our backend and somehow that file got a little mixed up. That episode should be back online by now though, sorry about that!

Question:

What's the song at the end of "Chickenlover"?

In South Park ("Chickenlover" -- Season 2, Episode 3), what's that song at the end of the episode when Officer Barbrady is in the freeze frame?

Answer

That catchy little tune playing over the Barbrady freeze-frame credits is actually a parody of the "Barnaby Jones" theme song. You can hear it again briefly at the beginning of "Roger Ebert Should Lay Off The Fatty Foods" (211), during Garrison's lessons on the importance of Barnaby Jones.

Bonus fact: If you watch the credits, you'll notice the credited "Executive Producer" Robert T. Pooner...a fake alias featured again in future episodes. You may also want to see the credits at the beginning of "The Spirit of Christmas"...

Question:

When are Cheesy Poofs coming out??

When do Cheesy Poofs hit the market at WalMart?

Answer

A lot of people have been having that Cheesy itch since we announced this -- they officially hit store shelves VERY soon! They'll only be available for a limited time though, so make sure to get your mittens on them soon!

Question:

Is South Park ending??

Is Season 15 the last season of South Park????

Answer

It's like we're walking on sunshine!! Fans, we finally have news on this and we're happy to say, it's great news -- Comedy Central has just renewed the show through 2013 (Season 17)! So to answer that question, no, Season 15 is NOT the last season of South Park...you still have at least TWO MORE full seasons after this one. The back-half of Season 15 starts up with new episodes October 5th. Get hyped!!

Question:

What episodes have Adult Cartman?

What episodes does adult Cartman come out in??

Answer

Sadly, adult Cartman has only been seen ONE time -- at the end of "My Future Self n' Me" (616). Even though it's a brief appearance, Cartman still manages to make the most of it by ruining his entire future. Whateva, I do what I want!

Question:

When do South Park's Kid Robot figurines come out?

Is the South Park x Kid-Robot release date really Aug. 4th or is that just a rumor?

Answer

That's no rumor, dude! South Park's 1st series of Kid Robot figures does indeed unleash on August 4th. There's Mr. Mackey, Butters, Kenny, Stan, Kyle, Mr. Garrison, Towelie, Cartman, Mr. Slave, big-balled Randy, Professor Chaos, Chef, and a bunch more! We'll make sure to post a link up on our homepage and Facebook for it...stay tuned!

Question:

Where's the homepage image of Baby Kenny from?

Is the current snapshot featured for the random episode (baby Kenny) from an actual episode?

Answer

Hell yeah, that's baby Mysterion, errr -- Kenny, bundled up tightly after a fresh re-birthing. It's actually from a very recent episode, "Coon vs. Coon & Friends" (1413) -- the third & final chapter in Season 14's Coon saga.
