South Park to Sell Re-Run Rights

Cartman, Kenny, Stan and Kyle are going to be getting a lesson in good language now that they've sold the re-run rights of South Park. But will the show be as appealing to viewers without the naughty words?

Comedy Central has given the rights to sell reruns of "South Park," to Mort Marcus, a former syndication executive at Disney for an unknown amount for his distribution company, Debmar Studios. He plans to edit the show for broadcast TV, that means cutting out most of Cartman's Comments. Some potential buyers, are worried, saying editing the show might rob it of its charm.

Marcus exonerated such remarks but noted that out of the 100 South Park episodes, there are only about 10 or 12 cannot be edited for broadcast TV. But out of the rest they have to work with, some choice words would be "Clipped out," he said.

Mort Marcus will be the distributer of the episodes, while others bid to purchase. We don't know who will be getting to run the South Park classics as of yet, and more than likely if and when they do become syndicated, each area may have them on different stations. We'll keep you updated.

South Park Season Three Cover Art
According to DVDPlanet and DVDEmpire the new cover art for the season three boxed set it what you're seeing to the left. News on whether or not this is the final artwork is still a little shaky. Season Three is scheduled for release on December 16th, 2003 (Just in time for a PERFECT Christmas gift).

Recap: South Park has NOT been sold!
For those of you who have been sending me hundreds of FAQs telling us what horrible people we are for selling your favorite show in the world to Disney, have no fear, you have been mistaken. South Park is NOT being sold, the rights to play the show on other TV stations has. It is almost the same thing as FOX letting Cartoon Network play Futurama, and The Family Guy. Also, Mort Marcus, does not work for Disney. He is a former Disney employee who was given permission from Comedy Central to distribute the episodes for syndication. So don't panic, the episodes will play the same as they always have on Comedy Central, and the DVDs will still be sold with the regular amount of censorship they always have.
