Frequently Asked Questions

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

Question:

What actor plays "Mr. Jefferson"?

In the episode "Meet The Jeffersons", what actor plays Michael Jackso-- I mean, Mr Jefferson?

Answer

Shamonee!! That spot-on rendition of Mr. Jefferson was voiced by Trey. He even did the songs "Wishin' Tree, "Ride The Train" and "The Power To Change".

For another Mr. Jefferson cameo, check out his pageant-loving ghost in "Dead Celebrities" (1308).

Question:

Why did Trey and Matt bring back Kenny after he died?

Hey FAQ guy or lady. May I ask, why did Trey and Matt bring back Kenny after he died "for good"?

Answer

It's FAQ Guy, but you fans can call me whatever you'd like!

As for Kenny -- at the end of Season 5, Matt and Trey were really sick of having to put a "Oh my god, you killed Kenny!" joke into every episode. So the plan was to kill Kenny off for good and replace him with a revolving door of characters to fill the 4th friend void.

But midway through that 6th Season, Matt and Trey decided it would be better if Kenny was still around. They missed having his character in the show, so to speak. So they began to re-introduce Kenny gradually (ie - Cartman drinking his ashes in "A Ladder To Heaven"), until he just reappeared like nothing happened in the last scene of Season 6 ("Red Sleigh Down").

Question:

What's the song playing when Stan's world turns to shit?

What is the name of the sad song featured in the "Assburgers" episode, where Stan's whole world is turning to shit? and the name of the singer/band?It's possibly one of the best songs I have ever heard.

Answer

I believe you're talking about the montage where Stan's world turns to shit in "You're Getting Old", not "Ass Burgers" (although the same song is used in both episodes). That tear-jerking tune is "Landslide" by Fleetwood Mac. Put down the Tween Wave and listen to that one -- it's a classic.

Question:

What season does "Bigger, Longer and Uncut" take place in?

What season does "South Park: Bigger, Longer, and Uncut" take place in??

Answer

Well..."Bigger, Longer and Uncut" is a feature film, so it's not really a part of any season. However, production for the movie went on at the same time Matt and Trey were making Season 2 and the beginning of Season 3 of "South Park". The movie premiered on June 30th, 1999 -- which is technically right between the episodes "Tweek Vs. Craig" and "Sexual Harassment Panda" (in Season 3).

Question:

How many times has Kenny died?

How many times has Kenny died?

Answer

This is a tricky one to answer and I know there's gonna be some fan disagreements. But I've tallied up the total deaths that actually occurred on-screen, during an episode, with Kenny as Kenny (I did include one from the World of Warcraft episode, when they killed Kenny's avatar -- that counts as one). Keep in mind, this number doesn't include show intros, videogames, specials, or when his soul was stuck in Cartman or a pot roast.

OK, so the total count is -- drumroll... -- 89 deaths.

The most recent ones can be found in Season 15's "The Poor Kid" and Season 16's "I Should Have Never Gone Ziplining".
