South Park: Ms Choksondik Talking Plush
I was looking through Comedy Central's store and I found a really cool Ms. Choksondik item. It's been out for a little while so some of you may already know about it.
Meet Ms.. Choksondik, the boy's 4th grade teacher. She refuses to wear a bra, but her lack of support doesn't seem to bother her at all...just everyone around her. This South Park™ Ms.. Choksondik Talking Plush Doll says a variety of phrases including, "This is the 4th grade, you need to grow up!" and "Well, well, well, I see somebody has some explaining to do."

Ms. Choksondik stands about 12 inches tall and sells for $24.99. There is also a really cool Jesus Vs. Santa set that I saw. It came with Satan and Jesus wearing the boxing outfits the wore in the Damien episode. Another cool plushy was Professor Chaos with removable helmet and cape. When I got the Professor Chaos doll, I noticed that his outfit was attached to the doll by small support strings. So I detached the helmet and the cape but was unable to remove the gloves (even though it specifically says you can remove them). I wasn't able to remove the gloves because the gloves were actually sewn into his hands. If one of you can actually remove his gloves let me know, since I was unable to remove them.
All these plushies and more can be found at www.comedycentral.com

South Park Figures UPDATE



(Tweek head added for silly effect - no actual picture is available yet)

I have just received some info on the mistake of using the Butters figure instead of the Tweek figure has been corrected. So they will be selling Tweek with the Underpants Gnome after all. Looks like we all got a sneak peek on what the Butters figure is going to look like, perhaps Series Two? Special thanks to Steve Fridley for emailing me that info! The set was created by Mirage Toys, and will go on sale mid July 2003 with a price tag of $49.99.
Series Two is slated to launch October 2003 (Just in time for the new Episodes!)

Dumb and Dumberer??
As some of you may have known, a while back Matt and Trey had decided that they were going to do the prequel to one of the dumbest movies ever made. Then South Park happened and all their extra time went to the show, and Dumb and Dumber pre-quels were tossed aside. Well, now since the films production was handed off to another poor, unlucky bastard, it debuts this Friday at a theater near you. I found this quote on the Guardian Unlimited.co.uk site.
"Maybe the iron laws of dramatic structure are a little high-flown for a film in which the narrative centre piece is a character appearing to smear faeces over themselves (rarely can one scene have acted as such an apt metaphor for a whole film). But then maybe we should bring the same weary scepticism we apply to the summer circus of endless sequels to the prequel. And the producers of Dumb and Dumberer could extend the same courtesy to audiences as was shown to them by South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone, their original choice to make the film: within weeks of starting work, the pair had admitted defeat, resigned from the project, and given back the money. " --Danny Leigh

My favorite picture of Trey

Special thanks to MattnTrey.com for the heads up on the news bite.

South Park Creators Prepare "Team America"
New movie spoofs THUNDERBIRDS, superheroes and Jerry Bruckheimer movies.

I've been getting tons and tons of emails, FAQs, and people coming in chat asking me the same thing. Why is the break from South Park so very long this time? It looks like Variety broke down and came out with it. Those of you over 30 probably know what the Thunderbirds are. Those of you who don't, Thunderbirds was a television show in the late 60's that takes place in 2065 when, "the world thrives on remarkable engineering projects and technological innovation."
I say that in quotes because, as we all know, television series from the 1960's about the future just weren't that accurate. But we sure did enjoy watching them. Also, Thunderbirds wasn't a live action show, the actors were all wooden marionettes. Marionettes are those cool wooden puppets that Pinocchio is modeled after (before he becomes a real boy for those of you still scratching your little skulls). If you would like to read more about the show, just click the Thunderbirds link above. If you would like to read the entire article regarding this story, please be clicking.... nyaw.

Once we get more news on this story, we'll post it.

Chef Aid This Week on South Park
One of my favorite episodes in the world is Chef Aid. It has a great Cartman moment that I could never forget... the German Dance. I've had a bunch of people ask me the lyrics of that song, even though it's only a few lines long. So let me get it out of the way right now.

I will do the German Dance for you
it's fun, and gay, and tra la la!
hope you will enjoy my dance
Filly-eye filly-eye filly-eye aye!
Would you like some sauerkraut?
German Boy! German Boy!

Filly-eye filly-eye filly-eye aye!
