Frequently Asked Questions

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

Question:

What does Randy yell at that lady in "TMI"?

In "T.M.I." what does Randy yell at the lady when he runs on and attacks her?

Answer

Ahhhh...good question! In the script it says "Vou DAMN N MONTAIRE!", which I believe might be pretty bad Frenglish for "You are a [damn] liar." Randy studied some Mongolian in college, but it sounds like he may have flunked French.

Question:

What is the correct formula for T.M.I.?

What is the correct formula for T.M.I.?

Answer

Excellent question, young go-getter. According to the U.S. Surgeon General, the correct equation for T.M.I. is "Length times Girth over Angle of the Shaft (aka YAW) divided by mass over WIDTH."

However, there are a few followers of the Marsh Method who still belief the Surgeon General's formula is flawed. To calculate, you'll need a tape measure, a protractor, and of course, a penis. Here is Randy's formula: "Length times Diameter plus Weight over Girth divided by Angle of the Tip squared."

Question:

What was Kenny's Go-Go Action Bronco parodying?

Could you settle something for me and my friends? My friends, who are conservative, say that the chase scene in "Cartmans Silly Hate Crime 2000" is a parody of the OJ Simpson chase. Now one could think that because Kenny and Cartman are in a Go Go Action Bronco. However, I think its a parody of the movie "The Chase" with Charlie Sheen, based on the fact that both Kenny and Cartman are in the Bronco. This being that OJ was alone in the Bronco if memory serves, and Kenny and Cartman are in the vehicle together (which is just like "The Chase").

Answer

I think you need to brush up a bit on your Juice. That Go-Go Action Bronco scene was indeed a parody of OJ Simpson hauling ass in his white Ford Bronco. Simpson actually WASN'T alone in that car -- the car was driven by his friend Al Cowlings (similar to Kenny driving "fugitive" Cartman). A lot of the aerial news coverage plays on that infamous chase too.

But before you get your panties in a twist, I have to give you props as well. The part where Cartman is trying to escape to Mexico and the cops have blocked off the road...all that is very similar to "The Chase." Maybe there's a bit of both, but that Go-Go Action Bronco definitely has deep roots with the Juice.

Question:

What's Kenny's penis size? How about Token's??

What's Kenny's penis size? I can't really see it on the sizes list. How about Token's? Is the saying true!?

Question:

Who does Wayne D's voice?

Who voices Wayne D. in the episode "T.M.I."?

Answer

That was Trey getting straight gangster on the mic.

Question:

Do Matt & Trey ever use their real voices?

Have Matt and or Trey ever used there actual regular voices for any characters at all?

Answer

Hell yeah they have, pretty frequently actually. They are able to do an insanely impressive range of voices off the cuff, but there are a lot of characters -- especially ones that have a small role in random episodes -- that sound just like them. A good example being the Anger Management Therapist from this last episode "T.M.I.". That is pretty damn close to Trey's normal voice. As for main characters, Randy (for Trey) and Gerald (for Matt) are relatively close to their normal, unaltered voices. Granted, they still embellish certain things per the character, like Randy's "vaghina" below.

If you want to hear what their normal voices sound like, we posted up a Behind The Scenes quiz for Season 14 here, in our South Park Pop Quiz. That has a bunch of clips with their commentary.

Question:

How is it that Osama dies in two different episodes?

I don't know if this question has been answered yet, but in the episode "Osama bin Laden Has Farty Pants", it shows that Osama bin Laden dies. But in "It's A Jersey Thing", he also dies?

Answer

It's not that uncommon for a character to die in South Park...only to be revived without explanation. I mean, look at Kenny. He dies all the time and people never remember!! In that same fashion, yep, Osama got a double dose. He was first killed in Season 5's "Osama bin Laden Has Farty Pants" (509) and then brought back nine seasons later, only to be killed again in "It's A Jersey Thing" (1409).

Question:

In "Royal Pudding", is Mr. Mackey's tirade a parody of the Texas Baseball Coach?

In "Royal Pudding," Mr. Mackey says in one of his tirades that he "knows the kids won't care in 15 minutes", an exact quote from a tirade by the University of Texas baseball coach Augie Garrito. Is this just a huge coincidence?

Answer

You caught that, huh? That's no coincidence, buddy. Mr. Mackey does really care about tooth decay, but a bit of his rant may just be a nod to that pissed-off Texas baseball coach.

Question:

Was Hitler in "Funnybot"?

My eyes maybe tricking me but in "Funnybot" was there a cameo or shot of Hitler in the audience after they were massacred by Funnybot?

Answer

I think that's a bit of eye trickery and also a bit of Hitler imagery. After Funnybot tells his knee-slapper joke via shooting everyone in the theater, a very Hitler-ish character can be see in the top right corner behind the Reporter. I don't believe that's Hitler, but then again, Funnybot IS German engineered.

Question:

What's the deal with that Top 15?

Is Comedy Central going to do anything more with the Top 15 episode selections and/or the descriptions of why you picked your Top 3? I saw a marathon right before Season 15 started with "___'s favorite episode" at the bottom of the screen, but is anything else in the works?

Answer

Yep. We've been compiling all of your votes over the last few months to find out -- once and for all -- what the Top 15 fan-picked episodes are. We've been doing promos and featuring them, as you've said, but the ultimate goal is way cooler. We can't spill the beans yet, but we will let you know real soon.

Question:

Do you accept script ideas?

I recently wrote a script for an idea I had for the show. Do you accept scripts?

Answer

Sorry buddy, we unfortunately do not accept script ideas, submissions, or any fan-submitted content (besides when we hold fan contests). Legally, we are not allowed to, and creatively, we got it on lock-down. Matt and Trey have been writing/directing/producing this show for 15 years, they got this dawg!

Question:

Hey, who were all the comedians in "Funnybot"?

Quick Question: In "Funnybot", can you name a list of the actors at the scene where they take everyone at the school hostage?

Answer

Sure thing! Here's the list I came up with, don't hate if I'm missing someone: Adam Sandler, Jay Leno, Ellen DeGeneres, David Spade, Rob Schneider, Zach Galifianakis, Kevin James, Russell Brand, Conan O'Brien, Jimmy Kimmel, Dane Cook, Steve Harvey, Louis C.K., and Tyler Perry...if he counts. There's also a cameo by Coyote Brown, the [not real] stand-up comedian that ripped on Randy in "With Apologies to Jesse Jackson" (1101).

Question:

Is Funnybot a parody of Dalek from "Dr. Who"?

Is the Funnybot a parody of a Dalek from the show "Dr. Who"? Also thanks for the 15 years of comic genius!!

Answer

It's impressive to see how many people caught that "Dr. Who" reference! Yes indeed, elements of Funnybot pay tribute to that classic cyborg from planet Skaro. Also, Trekkies may have noticed the nod to the awesome Star Trek episode "The Changeling" from the Original Series. The name of the Trek robot is NOMAD and he similarly hates biological imperfections. AWKWARD!!!

Question:

What's the time between production and airing on TV?

What's the time between South Park production and it's airing on Comedy Central? Do they make last minute scenes? I'm mainly wondering because the newest one about the "Funnybot", it ends with the President making a speech in regards to getting rid of Tyler Perry and it ends with "justice has been done." It's only been 3 days since Bin Laden was killed. Did they add that at the last minute or is that a coincidence?

Answer

That is no coincidence. The time between the end of production and on-air is INSANELY SHORT. We usually finish the episode anywhere between 4am - Noon (Pacific Standard Time) on Wednesday, the same day it airs. And since it airs on the East Coast at 10 PM (7 PST), that means there's usually less than 7-10 hours between delivery and on-air.

That allows Matt and Trey to stay so on top of news and current events. It's not easy, but they can actually put things in our new episodes within 24 hours of them happening. Here are a few more examples of the timeliness of South Park:

In the episode "About Last Night", Obama wins the Presidency and elements of his acceptance speech are in the show that aired less than 24 hours after he won. Saddam Hussein sneaking out of his spider hole in the episode "Christmas in Canada," just two days after he was captured in Iraq. Janet Reno busts in and captures the Contorting Triplets, just a few days after a similar event plays out in Florida, and Elian Gonzalez is sent back to Cuba.

Question:

Why is HumancentiPad "UNAVAILABLE" to watch?

Dear FAQ guy, I tried to watch the "HumancentiPad" episode today and it says its not available until 5/27/11. Why is that? I watched it the day after it came out and now its "unavailable".

Answer

We get this question every single show run, so I'm adding this to the Most Frequently Asked Questions. Yep, last week's episode is temporarily unavailable -- it will be back online here in a little bit. Because of our contracts with cable providers and networks, we HAVE to take new episodes down for a brief period after they air.

Basically, here's how it works: We get the new episodes online right after they air on the west coast (around 11:30p PST), and it stays on our site for a full week after it airs. Then, we have to take it down for three weeks because of legal reasons. After those three weeks, however, it comes back up on our site FOREVER! FOR FREE! In glorious high-quality streaming. So mark the calendar on your tablet device, "HUMANCENTiPAD" will be back online May 27th.
