Hey Everyone,

Happy New Year!

Well I hope all of you enjoyed your Holidays but now it's time to get back to work. It's still pretty quiet here in South Park since not everyone is back from their breaks and it'll probably be like this for another two weeks or so. After that we start production of season six. Just so you all know... NO ONE knows whats going on for season six just yet, no new info has come up but once we get it, we'll post it. Until then y'all are just gonna have to hold your breath on new news info about the new season. Or better yet, don't hold your breath... that might be bad!

There's not much new news on Matt and Trey either, they are going to be showing up for The U.S. Comedy Arts Festival in Aspen Colorado, not sure when but the Festival runs through February 3rd. Click here (it's about half way down the page)

In other news, I seem to be having some technical difficulties with my email so we're working on that now. Hopefully it'll be back up soon.

Here is another Christmas Party picture of Mark and Keef

Saw some fancy things South Park on Ebay.com today:

South Park Scripts
Volume One Volume Two

Large format paperback contains the complete scripts* to the following episodes:

Cartman gets an anal probe
Big gay Al's big gay boat ride
Death
Cartman's mom is a dirty slut
Cartman's mom is still a dirty slut
*includes storyboards and other illustrations

"Timewarped" by Trey Parker This is a vhs tape of an extremely rare unaired tv pilot Trey Parker, Matt Stone and company made but never got picked up. It can best be described as Cannibal the Musical meets the Ten Commandments. Check it!

Hello Everyone!

Just wanted to give you all the newest news bite. Today I found out from Butters that there is going to be a couple of new South Park plush dolls coming soon! We're not too sure when the date of release is but a TALKING Towelie plush and a Mr. Mackey Plush. Now we don't know if the Mr. Mackey plush will talk but we'll keep you posted.

Any who! Most of us are finally back in the studios but we're not quite up to normal speed. The sixth season of South Park is supposed to be airing on March 6th 2002, this date as all of you know is subject to change. I haven't heard any news on the new season as of yet but once we get info about the episodes we'll post it here on the main news page.

For those of you who haven't registered yet you SHOULD! Then you can join me and the other web monkeys on the BBS. You can also come and chat with us in the Official South Park chatroom just by clicking nyaw. All you have to do is fill out your nickname and click "connect" and if you have any problems with your nickname or anything else once you've connected. Just ask someone with a little @ symbol by their names and they'd be happy to help.

More news when we get it!

Hey kids. As you may already know, Talking Towelie dolls will be available through Comedy Central by summertime. (Maybe even sooner!)

And before you ask, no, it won't be a beach towel like the one in the commercial (damn!). But it will be a little doll with a voice chip that you can prop up against your computer. My Towelie will be resting on my bed pillow when I'm not sleeping. There's another special feature that I can't get into right now, but rest assured that it's pretty damn cool.

(singing) "My Towelie. My Towelie. Wherever I go, he goes..." (end singing)

Okay, I had to swig back a couple shots of Wild Turkey to get through that, so don't say I never suffer to entertain.

I think I need some air now...

Hey Everyone,

Well today I was putting around on Yahoo.com and noticed a little article from Reuters about "Run Ronnie Run" in which your favorite South Park creators Matt Stone and Trey Parker make a cameo appearance. It seems that some people aren't laughing too hard... more like a chuckle really, who knows? I have yet to see it myself! Apparently it was screened at the Reviewed at New Line Cinema screening room, L.A. on January 8th. And apparently it was shown at the Sundance Film Festival from January 12th to the 14th. Please click here to read the reuters article about "Run Ronnie Run"

569 - breayle: January 22, 2002

Hey kids! Not much going on around these parts, as you may have guessed by the alarming lack of posts on my part. (Well, besides a few renovations in the Post Production area of our studios.) I did score a few "Up With People" records that were part of the voluminous research for Episode #301 - "Choir Tour." (The first episode I worked on!) If you play them backwards, you can hear "Kenny is dead." Man, those UWP peeps were on to something.

If you've been catching "Project Greenlight" on HBO, you may have noticed that the 1st Assistant Director (his name escapes me like a silent killer) wore an old skool Cartman t-shirt a couple of episodes ago. Yeah, I know, that's a bit of stretch in the South Park news department, but like I said, it's been slow.

Matt made a brief appearance during the end credits for MTV's "Beach House Uncensored." (Yeah, I know, I'm desperate for entertainment) It was an outtake from the BLU press tour interview with Ananda Lewis. I guess it was a production break because Matt just starts singing a nursery rhyme with mostly bleeped out lyrics (so much for "Uncensored"). I only watched the last twenty minutes of the show so I'm not sure if the boys are in any other part of the program.

So in place of juicy South Park gossip, here's a link to an educational site my friend Seth hooked me up with. Check it here .

Free Winona!

Your friend, Charles

  A small update to the Canadian South Park fans. The Comedy Network is airing the new season of South Park starting today at 9:30pm.

  I've also been told that if you want to get South Park and you live in the UK that Sky One has it available.

And in Australia SBS Radio and TV offers South Park

  That's all for the updates really, things are still pretty slow but I'm sure they will pick up soon. Hope everyone has a great weekend and HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME!

We're number one! We're number one!

Whoo Hoo! Once again, South Park has broken records and pissed of some parents. In a study to be released this week, the Parents Television Council found South Park to have the most objectionable content per episode, averaging 126 instances of sex, violence or foul language per half-hour. Click here to read the whole article.

Heh cool....

Things are still pretty slow, and there is no other news on sixth season episodes. I've also answered some new questions in the FAQ's and added a new poll. So check those both out.

We're having a little discussion on where you'd send the South Park kids to. You must be a registered user to chat on the bulletin board so click here if you haven't done that yet. More to come!

We're number 4! We're number 4!

Last night on E! Television's "Rank: TV's Guilty Pleasures" South Park ranked number 4!

Bryan Cranston (Hal on Malcolm in the Middle) says he loves the show especially since the kids heads are obviously boobs,... okay whatever!?!

and the Cast of "Whose Line is it Anyway" was raving, Wayne Brady did his impression of Cartman and Drew Carey said "South Park is a show you should be proud to admit watching, I love it!"

Also "ranking" for Comedy Central was Battlebots at #14 and The Man Show at #6

GO TEAM!!
