Mrs. Landers was a health nut
She cooked food in a wok
Mr. Harris was her boyfriend
And had a great big

Shitzus make good house pets
They're cuddly and sweet
Monkeys aren't good to have

Meeting in the office
A meeting in the hall
The boss he wants to see you
So you can suck his
Balzac was a writer
He lived with Alan Funt
Mrs. Roberts didn't like him
But that's 'cause she's a
Contaminated water

The story came out in excruciating detail, complete with emails and phone transcripts.

Q: WHAT IS A CHODE?A: choad /chohd/ n. Synonym for `penis' used in alt.tasteless and popularized by the denizens thereof. This term is alleged to have been inherited through 1960s underground comics, and to have been sighted in the Beavis and Butthead cartoons. Speakers of the Hindi, Bengali and Gujarati languages have confirmed that `choad' is in fact an Indian vernacular word equivalent to ` f-ck'; it is therefore likely to have entered English slang via the British Raj.

We've never done that before. Seven was the previous high, and that almost killed us. Uh-oh.

You'll probably be able to find some songs under DVDA - though I think they're the live versions from LapDance 2000 or the Palace show (Besides "Now You're a Man"). Matt and Trey recorded a couple of tracks in a professional studio recently, but I don't think any of those got leaked out...yet.
Q: Has Mr. Garrison ever took off Mr. Hat?A: Mr. Hat did leave Mr. Garrison for a while, only to be temporarily replaced by Mr. Twig. On another occasion (Ep #317 - "The Brown Noise") Mr. Mackey and Mr. Hat got into a fight on the bus where he was separated from Mr. Garrison. Mr. Hat won that fight.

I was also corrected by a fan, Mr. Garrison also threw Mr. Hat off and tossed him into a drawer in #102 when Mr. Hat kept telling Mr. Garrison to kill Kathie Lee Gifford. Thanks!

May 17, 2001
Q: How many shows can you make a week?A: One, and that's pushing it. It normally takes 2-3 weeks to make an episode. It's been widely reported that we once did an episode in 4 days, but that doesn't include the time it took to write the script and the partial design work that was done beforehand.That would be the Quintuplets episode, in which the story and animation were reworked in 4 days to take the Elian Gonzales debacle into account.

The last two episodes of the season will most likely be holiday episodes, which Matt and Trey find to be the hardest to write.There wasn't.

Q: Will "That's My Bush" have its season finale when "South Park" premieres?A: No. "That's My Bush" has it's finale on May 23rd, while "South Park" premieres on June 20th.
Q: Hey why don't you all do an episode where Cartman is forced to coach a little girls soccer team as his civic duty for some crime that he committed. I think that would be funny as hell.A: Ah "Ladybugs." Will only the french understand the genius that is Rodney Dangerfield? Maybe Cartman could get Kenny to dress up like a girl, to make the team better. Just a thought.
Q: Have Butters' parents ever been on one of the shows? If so, which episode?A: Yes, they were featured in the "Circle of Poo" montage, eating dinner in episode #417. You can also see them in #416 where they tell Butters that they love him, but only in a platonic way. There may be more, but I can't recall them at this moment.
Q: Will this be the best season ever? I love the vulgarity!!!A: You know it! And I do to!
Q: Will south park keep its TVMA rating?A: As long as it's content stays the same it will get the same rating. South Park has always been meant for a mature audience.... or an older audience that's not too mature.

Good luck on your show.

Eric Stough is the Director of Animation. Pam Brady is the Creative Producer.
Q: On the DVD's are any of the episodes edited from what was originally on Comedy Central? (i.e. "Chicken Lover" and "Succubus").A: I was curious about this one myself. I do know that we often make audio or animation corrections after the original Wednesday broadcast. We usually take it down to the wire here at SP, so any changes are intended to correct errors. As far as the powers that be, they have no knowledge that any episode was edited for content. Then again, we usually only look at the original episodes as broadcast, so if there are changes it's news to us. If you have any specific examples. Please contact us.Oh, where to begin? The changes in content are sprinkled throughout the secrets, but I'll mention a few here:
  1. Mr. Mackey getting away with saying "bullshit" in "Ike's Wee Wee"
  2. The extended sequence in "An Elephant Makes Love To A Pig" in which Shelley takes a match and lights Stan up, douses him, and repeats this three or four times.
  3. The announcer getting away with saying "Michael Jackson" when he says he hasn't seen so many children molested since... in "Big Gay Al's Big Gay Boat Ride." This was reported in viewings outside the U.S., as was the sequence above, which shows that the folks at South Park Studios send the censored videos only to Comedy Central.
  4. "Bill Cosby" saying different words when he was fading in the Saturday viewing of "Trapper Keeper"
  5. Kenny's ghost laughing as it rises out of his corpse in "Scott Ternorman Must Die."
Q: Will "Not Without My Anus" be released or aired again.A: #201 "Anus" was released on VHS. If you participated in the chat, you would know what it would take to get the episode aired again.
Q: Which episodes did Nancy Pimental write/co-write?A: While Trey does all of the writing, he does get a lot of help from Matt and the staff writers. Nancy had a strong part in #402 - "The Tooth Fairy's Tats 2000" as well as the two-parter airing now, #410-411. Nancy has been writing for South Park since about midway through the second season.
Q: Are Trey & Matt gay?A: No Dian, and quit asking.
Q: Are there any plans to release the two versions of "The Spirit of Christmas" on video and/or DVD? Was the entire "Goin' Down to South Park" BBC special released on video last year? It seemed to me to end somewhat abruptly.A: An abreviated version of "Goin' Down to South Park" aired on Comedy Central under the auspices of "Canned Ham" I believe. Part 1 of the special was released with the "Christmas in South Park" tape and DVD, Part 2 was released with "The Best of South Park" tape and DVD.

Either that, or the person who made the story up tried to make it look three years old.
Q: Are Terrance and Phillip rip-offs of MTV Beavis and Butt-Head?A: No, they're rip-offs of Matt and Trey. After some critics of "South Park" said that animation could not get any crappier or inane, Matt and Trey created Terrance and Phillip to show those critics that they were sorely mistaken.

Q: Do the people at South Park just get rid of a certain character's paper cut out if that character will only be used once? For example, could Rebecca or Mr. Derp be animated into a Scene again, or would they have to draw them all over again cuz their original drawings were all burned or something?A: South Park is now done in Maya. Characters are built with Corel Draw and can be taken from older episodes and used over again if they're in the scene. The show hasen't been done in construction paper since "Cartman Get an Anal Probe." and of course the "Spirit of Christmas: Jesus Vs. Frosty" and "Spirit of Christmas: Santa Vs. Jesus."
Q: Hi! I stumbled about the IMDB and found out that there are some movies by Trey I never heard of before. Are they ("For Goodness Sake II", "The Colored Star", "Run, Ronnie, Run" and "Your Studio and You") fakes, avalible or planed? -Thanks! (again and again and ...) CasaA: "Your Studio and You" was a inter-studio promo Trey did for Universal. Matt's in it. It's damn funny, filled with stars like Steven Spielberg, Demi Moore, and Bruce Willis. It's insane. "Run, Ronnie, Run" is a movie by David Cross and Bob Odenkirk (of Mr. Show). Matt and Trey have cameos. Not sure about "The Colored Star and "For Goodness Sake." Though there is some actor named Trey Parker. I know Matt and Trey had a cameo in a Troma film a couple years back. It could be one of those.
Q: Will this site give us any exclusive South Park stuff, like the original Quintuplets episode or some of the deleted Scenes from the show/Movie over the years?A: Southparkstudios.com will try it's best to get deleted scenes. Up until now deleted scenes were dumped and never heard from again. We have limited storage space, a digi-beta tapes are super pricey

April 25, 2001
Q: I HAVE A QUESTION: IF THEY SHOWED CARTMAN AND KENNY WITHOUT HATS, WHY HAVE THEY NEVER SHOWN STAN AND KYLE WITHOUT HATS TOO? WHEN WILL WE SEE THEM WITHOUT HATS?A: caps off

We like to keep you guys waiting.

We've seen Stan with his cap slightly off in #417, "A Very Crappy Christmas." His hair is jet black. I suppose Kyle will be next.

And so it was. Stan and Kyle took off their hats for picture day in "How To Eat With Your Butt."
Q: In episode 101, cows get a device that makes people look stupid and sing a really cool song. What's the song name and who sings it?A: That is from an old Warner Brothers cartoon. The character's name is "Owl Joleson" He was the same type character as the singing frog. He'd sing this song but once he was put in front of a mic or any other people he'd clam up!!
Q: When is the new season going to start? I'm getting impatient! :)A: It's supposed to start on June 20. Please look at all the FAQ's. Your question has been answered before. There will be at least 10 new episodes.
Q: Is there any site where I can find a map of South Park?A: If you're talking about South Park, CO. I'm sure AAA has maps of Colorado.

If you're talking about our South Park, I've talked to our Director of Animation, Eric Stough, and he says that there is no, real map of South Park. They just make it up as they go along. For example, the docks in the Korn episode, and Phil Collins hill in "Cartman's Silly Hate Crime 2000."

If you want to see a guess of what the layout of the city may look like, play the South Park Rally game.

April 24, 2001
Q: In episode 111 the celebrity guest is listed in the credits as "The chick from Species". This implies Natasha Henstridge.

Q: When Timmy is "singing" on stage with Lords of the Underworld. What's the real name of the tune they are playing (the fast one)?A: "Timmy and the Lords of the Underworld." Pretty simple, huh? The other song is called "Timmy Livin' A Lie." CC and American records put out a CD-Single with the two songs. You can buy it, or download it somewhere.
Q: When do you plan to start answering the FAQ's?A: We've been answering the FAQ's
Q: Who thought of South Park first, Matt or Trey, or was it a combined idea?A: I really think it was Satan who thought of this show first, who he talked to first after that... who knows!?

Q: Is that Trey's handwriting all over the storyboards? Have the guys ever put themselves in an episode anywhere? It seems to me that they would have, and I just missed it.A: No, the writing on the storyboards is usually done by our Director of Animation, Eric Stough. The guys have never appeared in an episode as themselves, though Kyle and Stan, Terrance and Phillip, and those two security guards in Episode #312 "Korn's Groovy Pirate Ghost Mystery" are kind of like their alter egos.
Q: Is Cartman's mom's name Liane for the same reason as the horse in Cannibal: The Musical?A: Yes he named Mrs. Cartman, Liane, because she's a dirty slut.
Q: Who is the banjo player? And are there downloads of him?A: The Banjo Player is Les Claypool from the band "Primus." He also sings the South Park Theme Song.
Q: What do the boys wear under their jackets?A: Their underwear.
Q: If Jerry Seinfeld was "Turkey #4", who were Turkeys #1-however many there were?A: Jerry Seinfeld was offered the role of "Turkey #4" but his agent rejected it.

Q: Do Trey and Matt occasionally use a pitch-changing device to alter their voices when they are voicing some of the children?A: Yes, Matt and Trey's voices are altered. Pretty much whenever a kid speaks his/her voice has been altered. The only time they don't alter kids voices is when they hire kids to do the voices.
Q: Why are there aliens/visitors on the cover of the "Cannibal: The Musical" dvd?A: Trey likes to throw in visitors whenever he can. Rumor has it that Trey himself was abducted by aliens.
Q: How do Trey and Matt hire the kids? I was wondering if they could hire me if i tried out....A: Trey and Matt don't hire the kids. Voice-overs are usually booked by our Associate Producer, Jennifer Howell. When they're not the children of employees or friends, we go through a casting agent. Child actors are scary. The parents of child actors are scarier.
Q: At the end of the South Park movie,after the credits, Ike eats a rat. Why would my favorite character eat a rat?A: Because he was hungry. He apparently stayed in there too long while the war was going on.
Q: Does "Not Without My Anus" count as an official South Park Episode?A: Yes. It's listed as episode #201.
Q: Why do Terrance and Phillip always fart ?A: It's those damn starchy Kraft dinners.
April 23, 2001
Q: Who came up with Terrance and Phillip? , and why are they Canadian? Why couldn't they be Aussies?A: Trey and Matt thought of them, and they're Canadian because they were born there. Also, they're kind of like Matt and Trey's alter egos - created as a response to the criticism that "South Park" was stupid. A big ass middle finger to the critics, if you will.
Q: Why is Mr. Mackey's head so big ?A: Because his body is so small. And his tie is too tight. Remember what happens when he loosens his tie in Episode #204 - "Ike's Wee Wee." Of course he was on drugs, Jer-Bear.
Q: What's the story behind the Braniff logo at the end of every episode? Braniff fan from Dallas.A: Braniff (as you may already know) was a failed airlines. Matt and Trey needed a logo for the end of their pilot so they used Braniff. They figured no one else needed it.

Q: Are Terrance & Phillip twins?A: Nope, but they are buddies, buddy. Besides, all Canadians look alike. With their beady little eyes and their mouths... well, you get it.
Q: Will the South Park animation for the 5th season remain the same?A: While we are changing our animation software from Power Animator to Maya, the look of the show should not change much. The same company makes both programs. If you'll notice, the look of the show has changed over the years - there's a lot more action and the animation is a little less crappy. Much of this can be attributed to things learned while doing the South Park movie.
Q: Why has there been such a long period where there were no new episodes after the end of Season Four? When will Season Five begin?A: Season Five will begin in June (the 20th we think). The reason why there is such a long break is because Matt and Trey have been working on their new show, "That's My Bush." The new show airs on Wednesday at 10:30 after South Park. Check it!
Q: How many more seasons will there be?A: Matt and Trey are signed for three more years.
Q: Did Matt & Trey actually bother to get the rights to "Even a Miracle Needs a Hand" for the Christmas episode, or is the lawsuit pending as we speak?A: Yes they did. Actually, I did because it's my job as Assistant to the Executive Producer. All music on South Park has been either cleared, composed for us, or are considered a legal parody. We clear our music through the friendly folks at EMG.
Q: Where can I find a copy of "Cannibal! The Musical" on DVD?A: http://www.craptv.com (in the CRAPstore) http://www.amazon.com (search Cannibal! The Musical)

The characters had the same goofy expressions. Check it!

You'll probobly see alot of that happening.

Q: Do the South Park kids like Trey Parker Films?A: Cartman hates everything so he hates them.

Q: Please help me out here! In episode 209 I say that Mr. Garrison was looking for Mr. Hat in the sewers, which totally makes sense! Our moderator says that Mr. Garrison was in the sewers because he has a bizarre fetish for poo. Who is right?A: As you all know, South Park can be quite obscure. Matt and Trey love to throw the most bizarre stuff into episodes just for the hell of it. I can pretty safely say that Mr. Garrison was not looking for Mr. Hat though the thought is a good one. I would lean more towards Mr. Garrison's fetish for poo.

Q: The Mr. Mackey and Barbrady episodes were great! Will we see more South Park episodes that focus on the lesser characters?A: Well, if you think about it, it's really the four main character's interaction with those peripheral characters that make great stories. You can only do so much with 4 boys who live in a small Colorado town. You need to draw on the other characters and expound on them.

Q: What was the best response and worst response from actual celebrities regarding how they were portrayed in South Park? What celebrities can we expect to see in upcoming shows?A: There was an article in People Magazine about Barbara Streisand having negative comments about South Park. But all the other celebrities who have participated in or have been on South Park just love it! I was at a bar in here in LA with one of my friends, and ran into Chris Hartwick (former host of MTV's Singled Out). Chris said, I'm sitting over there with Bob Sagget would you like to meet him?" I said, "You've got to be kidding me! What did Bob think of episode 113?" And Chris replied, "Oh, he loved it and thought it was very funny!" So even though we made fun of Bob, it was done in a playful manner. And South Park is just comedy, and it's good when people can laugh with us, instead of getting upset like Ms. Streisand did.
