Who is Mysterion??? Wait...you couldn't tell?? Maybe you should have another look.Even after a secret reveal in the Season 13 DVD deleted scenes, we are no closer to an answer.
In the episode "Raisins", why do all the Raisins girls have car names? If you're asking that, you obviously don't live in the United States. Over here, a lot of girls who might work at an establishment such as Raisins are named after luxury cars. I'm not really sure why, but it's pretty smug.
What the hell does TBA mean? Umm...To Be Announced. As in, it's coming soon.
Hey if i remember right, there was a SouthParkStudios iPhone App in the making. What happened to that? Oh, you remembered right. It's been done and awesome since September 2008, but it got rejected by the App Store.

I see that seasons 11-13 are on iTunes in HD. Any plans on bringing seasons 1-10 out in HD as well? If so, when? We've got big plans, my friend. We are currently working backwards from Season 10 to bring them all to HD. It's a long, intensive process, but we've got great peeps working on it, so be patient, and you'll have those HD episodes in no time.
which is the epidode where Cartman is mayor? When the Birth Givers have all been arrested for molestering, Cartman takes over as the Mayor of Smiley Town. This is from the Season 4 gem "The Wacky Molestation Adventure" (416).

In which episode does Timmy die? My friend told me that he died in the movie. But I watched all 3 parts of Imaginationland AND Bigger, Longer, and Uncut, and still no death of Timmy! Breathe a sigh of relief my friend, Timmy has not died. And your friend's a jerkface for saying he did.
I notice that you have the latest episodes on pretty quick after airing. It'll be there for maybe a week, and then it'll say something about waiting until this/that date to watch it again. Why isn't it on for about a month?? Are you guys fixing bugs with the episode or something? No, it's not bugs. We would love to leave them up forever, but for legal reasons way over our head, we have to take them down for 23 days (a week after they air). Then they come back online for good. I don't really understand it myself. I dunno, we just make cartoons.
How does cursing work on South Park and comedy central. Did the episode 'It Hits the Fan' mark a period in time when u could start cursing? Oh and one more for ya, am i gunna get spamed? I think the period where we could start cursing was marked with "Cartman Gets an Anal Probe". We've been tearing it up from day one. Trey writes whatever he wants, and then Comedy beeps what they feel is necessary. "It Hits the Fan" was a special exception though, you will notice that they beep the "S-word" in all the other shows.

And no, you're not gonna get spammed.

According to Wikipedia, Matt and Trey have signed a contract with Comedy Central to create a total of 15 seasons. Do they plan continuing this awesome show after 15. Ahhh, I love Wikipedia. Yes, Matt and Trey have signed on through an epic 15th Season, but that's still very far away. Season 13 just premiered Wednesday, which means there's at least three more full seasons of South Parkage before they will answer that question.
When do new episodes air online?? i gotta see the new episode.. We put the new episodes online right after it airs on the West Coast, as close to 10:31 PST as possible. Because the video needs to spread around the world through internet hocus-pocus, sometimes it takes a little while before the episode is available for everyone on our site. For sure, it will always be available by the next morning after it premieres on Comedy.
Why did the terrorist attack Imaginationland?? everything seemed so happy over there Because they're terrorists. That's what they do.
Wednesday, March 4, 2009
I cant wait another whole week for session 13, could you guys freeze me like Cartman to make wait time shorter? pls Well, I'm pretty sure we shouldn't freeze you. But if you close your eyes and count backward from 100 Gelgameks, the season 13 premiere should be here in no time. Don't forget to catch a sneak preview on Sunday night of the season premiere. It will be available around 10 pm PST.
Please!!!! Answer!!!!! does James Woods do the voice of Conan Obien in the movie???? Hey there, Mr. Exclamation Point. Nope, it's actually Brent Spiner that does Conan's voice in "Bigger, Longer, and Uncut."
Why does Kyle seem to be so angry at his hair? He never takes his cap off! You'd probably act the same way too if you had an unruly red mop on your head.
Tuesday, March 3, 2009
What are the exact lyrics for the song "I've got something in my front pocket" to which Butters tapdances in that "you got served" episode? "I've got something in my front pocket for you.
Why don't you reach on in my pocket and see what it is.
There grab onto it - it's just for you.
Give it a little squeeze and say how do you do?
There's something in my front pocket!
Something in my front pocket! --"

It's a beautiful song, even on paper.

What episode does Randy get drunk driving the boys home from karate? Randy lacks disciprine and drives drunk in "Bloody Mary" (914).
Which episode is it where Mr. Garrison finds out he is actually gay? It took a Tree of Insight and a lot of Choksondik, but Garrison comes face to face with his gay side in "Fourth Grade" (412).
Monday, March 2, 2009
I didn't understand what happened to the Brian guy in "The Snuke". What was inside Clinton's vagina that ate him? Nobody really knows? God help him.
Wednesday, February 25, 2009
Which episode features Marilyn Manson singing "Stinky Britches"?! Trey's best work in my opinion, even though it only lasted like 20 seconds. Manson rocks out to Stinky Britches in "Prehistoric Ice Man" (218). Glad you liked it, because Gorac seemed to have the opposite reaction.
What episode does Jesus fight Satan in a boxing ring? You gotta dig back into Season 1's "Damien" for that testosterone-induced gem.
Tuesday, February 24, 2009
Hello, will we in Scandinavia be able to watch your new episodes?? Its been offline along time now and I'm worried you wont fix it. Oh we are working to fix it, doubting Thomas. This very week we started building an international version of SouthParkStudios.com. We will keep you posted with the latest info. Check the News page in the next few weeks for the official announcement.
I seriously cannot wait for the new season. Do the guys already have an idea what the season 13 opener will be about?? I heard they dont start production until March 4th, but they have to have some idea what it's about right? The crew is actually back in pre-production as we speak. They generally come back about 4 weeks before the the first episode airs to start working on new concepts, art, etc. As far as the season opener is concerned, there are not many details as of yet. We will announce the title of the season premiere on Sunday, March 8 around 10 pm PST. Check back here that night for the episode's title and description, some press images, and a preview clip.
Is the kid called "Dog-Poo" Kenny's brother? If not, then what's the name of Kenny's brother? Nope, Dog Poo is his own dirty man. Kenny's bro is named Kevin.
Does the "P" on Carman's hat in "Tonsil Trouble" stand for something? Philadelphia. It's a reference to the Tom Hanks movie "Philadelphia", in which Tom Hanks plays an AIDS patient. Good movie, and I recommend it if you're looking for a cheery, pick-me-up flick.
Monday, February 23, 2009
In which episode did Stan get dumped?? I want to go 'ha ha' at that point Wendy breaks up with Stan in Season 7, in the "Raisins" episode (714). It's pretty traumatic, so go ahead and laugh. But jokes on you, they've gotten back together since then.
Wednesday, February 18, 2009
What is the episode where Randy is on Wheel of Fortune and the question is "People who annoy you"? The episode is the Season 11 opener, "With Apologies to Jesse Jackson" (1101). And I believe the answer to that question is "Naggers".
Whatever happend to the "Cult of Cartman" contest? No winner was ever announced We contact each of the winners individually. After they bathed away their impurities in the Fountains of Varnoth, completed mountains of paperwork and received their prizes; we will announce the winners.
What is the name of Professor Chaos' partner?? General Disarray.
Tuesday, February 17, 2009
What episode does Cartman tell his joke about "the aristocrats' in again? I believe that clip was made exclusively for the movie "The Aristocrats". But I did find the clip online here. Shhh...
u know the episode "smug alert"...in the end when cartman rescues kyle's family from the smug, how did cartman get them out of there on time in a bus with out getting killed? Cartman's fear of not being able to make Jew jokes and abject fear of being stuck with thousands of Hippies in San Francisco gave him the strength of ten men, plus two.
In what episode does Randy (or some character) get so sick that he craps and vomits almost simultaneously? Actually, it wasn't Randy. It's was Kenny's Dad in "Cartman Joins NAMBLA" (406). He puke-poops after mistakenly drinking the abortion cocktail that Kenny made for his Mom.
Monday, February 16, 2009
Why is it always winter in South Park? Because the Boys live in Colorado. And it's always freakin' snowing there.
Sunday, February 15, 2009
The episode where the Boys find out people crap themselves before they die happens BEFORE chef dies, in the wallmart episode!! and what year did south park start? Good call, you're totally right!! It happens here first in "Something Wall-Mart This Way Comes" (809). And the show started back in 1997. Thanks for keepin' it realz.
Wednesday, February 11, 2009
In Pandemic, the southpark Boys refer to an episode where Kyle was raped in Peru. What episode was that?? Well, it wasn't actually Kyle that was raped in Peru, it was someone close to Kyle. And that is from "The China Probrem" (1208). But I can't say Kyle was unaffected; the nightmares were pretty intense.
Which episode is it where Chef's Parents talk about their many stories of how they lost their $3.50 ??? Chef's Parent's are in town for Chef's attempted marriage in "Succubus" (303), and they bring with them tales of the Loch Ness Monster, Girl Scouts, and of course, tree fiddy.
Is there any place I can purchase a 'Man Bear Pig' sculpture or statue? I would love to own one!! Not that I know of, but you could always make a macaroni picture of him. At the very least, that would make Moses happy.
What's the name of the song that plays when Kyle gets a makeover in "South Park Is Gay"? That metro pump-up jam is called "All Things Just Keep Getting Better" by Widelife featuring Simone Denny. I believe it's also the theme to "Queer Eye For the Straight Guy".
is there gonna be season 13 ? i would like that because SP rocks Uhhh....HELL YEAH. It's coming very soon -- new episodes start March 11th at 10pm EST. And from now on, they'll be in Hi-Def!
Tuesday, February 10, 2009
What kind of voice manipulation software are you using to make the South Park characters sound as they do? They use ProTools for most of the audio recording and manipulation.
In which episode does Cartman sing "Come Sail Away" real fast? "Cartman's Mom Is Still A Dirty Slut" (202). Be warned: once he hears the first note of that song, he can't do anything until it's done.
what is cartman's pigs name? Fluffy. You can actually check out the pig's profile in the Non-Human section of our updated "Characters" Page or watch this clip.
Tuesday, February 3, 2009
Why does Kenny never take off his hoodie?? PLEASE, 4 the love of God, dont just say there was no real reason. It's really warm.
What is the episode where cartman sings "kyle's mom is a bitch", and at the end Kyle's Mom sees him singing it?? I can't find that episode... That song is originally from "Mr. Hankey the Christmas Poo" (110), although I believe you're thinking of the even-grander version of the song from the SP movie "Bigger Longer, and Uncut". That's where Cartman gets caught by Kyle's mom.
in what episode is cartman a teacher? You mean Mr. Cartmenez? He cheats his way into the heart of a group of inner-city kids in "Eek, A Penis" (1205). Say it with me: "I misinterpreted the rules".
Who does the music that the Goth Kids listen to? I think you're talking about the songs the Goth kids are listening to in "the Ungroundable"? If so, that is actually Trey singing those "Cure"-like songs.
What is the episode where the people of South Park crap out of their mouths? This was actually answered a while ago, but it's such a popular question, it needs to be addressed again or I'll poop out of my own mouth. The mouth-crapping episode is from Season 6, "Red Hot Catholic Love", where Cartman shoves food up his ass, and successfully craps out of his mouth to win a bet with Kyle. People often get confused and think it's "How to Eat With Your Butt" (510), which ironically does not feature any mouth-poopage. Here's the episode you want, it's a classic.
Sunday, February 1, 2009
is it just me or in the episode Chimpokomon you were making fun of Pokemon? It's not just you. That's a pretty obvious one.
I cannot find the episode when Wendy and Cartman kiss. Wanna help me out? Sure. It's from "Chef Goes Nanners" in Season 4. People forget that Wendy and Cartman had this little make-out sesh, especially after Wendy kicked Cartman's ass this season. But boy, did it happen.
Wednesday, January 28, 2009
What's the episode with Oprah in it? Friends told me it involved some pretty weird body parts?... That's the one where Towelie tries to pass off as a human to sell his book, "A Million Little Fibers" -- which is also the name of the episode (1005). As far as Oprah's naughty parts, you're going to have to ask Minge and Gary.
What episode has Cartman singing "Oh holy night" while being zapped with a cattle prod? That's actually not from an episode. It was used as an on-air promotional commercial for "South Park" during the holidays of the first season (1997). We threw that little "bonus clip" up on SPS because you fans are so friggin' awesome.
In "Rainforest Schmainforest", the lady leader of Getting Gay With Kids sounds alot like Jennifer Aniston. Its not her, is it?? It actually IS her. She did a cameo on that episode as the Choir Teacher. Lot's of celebrities have been IN the show, but only a few have come in and recorded their voice for an actual character. Jennifer Aniston was one of those few.
Tuesday, January 27, 2009
Aside from 'Close Encounters', what is "Overlogging" a parody of? I can't quite put my finger on it. "The Grapes of Wrath". It does a pretty great job of it too, the black and white kind of gives it away.
In what episode did the Boys discover that people crap themselves when they're killed or dead? Well, they find out the hard way when Chef dies.
Hi, i wanted to watch the 'Miss Teacher Bangs A Boy' episode... I could not remember the season and so i went for trough the characters to get to Ike (one of the main characters that episode), but Ike only had 3 episodes linked with him. Maybe you can put that Miss Teacher episode there also.. thanks and goodluck with the new season, looking forward to it. Let me answer that question first with this general piece of SPS advice: Try the search bar. It's pretty darn helpful, especially if you know the name of the episode or a couple keywords. Secondly, we are currently updating the Characters pages to make them even sweeter and more comprehensive, so check that out too. And to answer your question straight up, "Mrs. Teacher Bangs A Boy" is from Season 10, Episode 10. Here you go!!
Monday, January 26, 2009
Wasn't there an episode when cartmen sings "I got a golden ticket"? or m i going nuts!!! To find this clip, you need to think like Cartman. What would make him feel like he just won the best prize ever? If you said, "discovering a disease where people blurt out swears uncontrollably without being punished"... then you're right on the money. It's from "Le Petit Tourette" (1108), and it's right here.
Wednesday, January 21, 2009
In which episode does the youtube dramatic hamster appear? That would be "Canada on Strike" (1204). And isn't it a dramatic chipmunk? I can never get it right.
What was the episode where Cartman starts his own church? The episode is "Probably", from Season 4. And not only does Cartman start his own church, but we finally get to meet God himself.
Does matt sing that "Rebecca" song? i don't know what to do rebeccaaaa Yes he does. Great tune.
Is there going to be any more episodes? Yeah, of course. Don't freak out. New episodes in Hi-Def start on March 11 at 10pm EST.
How is Kenny's voice made to sound muffled the way it is? Matt takes a tissue and holds it in the palm of his hand, then speaks into his hand to muffle the sound. Once you get used to it, you can actually understand what Kenny says pretty well. But that, my child, takes great disciprine.
Tuesday, January 20, 2009
In the episode "Major Boobage", Kenny's ladyfriend is drawn so lifelike, so inspirational.... I have to ask how many real life models you brought to your studio to get such amazing cleavage? And it was not my sister, was it? she is a pole dancer out there in la la land.... I agree, it is some incredibly awesome boobage. That episode actually required a whole special team of traditional animators to hand draw the animation, and yes, even some tasty modeling. You can learn all about how it was made here, in the "Behind the Scenes of Major Boobage" feature.
In episode 502 "Cripple Fight", is the fight scene a parody of the 1988 movie, "They Live"? Wow, good catch. Yeah, it is. To create that infamous Cripple Fight scene, they actually animated Jimmy and Timmy shot-for-shot, right over that ridiculously long and drawn-out fight scene from "They Live". I'm sure John Carpenter was thrilled.
Wasn't there an episode where Towelie is a server at PF Chang's?? How spicy would you like your Chang Sauce? It's from "A Million Little Fibers" (1005). And, for the record, high towels make really bad waiters and even worse Chang Sauce.
Wednesday, January 14, 2009
Is any of the voice acting, especially for the kids, digitally altered to reach the final product? Yes, actually most of the kid's voices use pitch shifting to achieve that awesome "kid" sound. Since Matt and Trey do a majority of the male vocals, they utilize various audio tools to get a wider range of sounds.
is there ANY episode in witch we can see Kenny without the hood? Well, to see Kenny fully without the hood, you're going to have to watch the movie "Bigger, Longer, and Uncut". But there are a few episodes where you can spot Kenny without that orange hoodie: "The Jeffersons" (807), "The Losing Edge" (905), and "Lice Capades" (1103).
Does Trey really write and direct all the episodes he is credited for? How can he do ALL this alone ? Yes, he does. But he doesn't do it all alone -- he has an amazingly talented staff of animators, storyboard artists, staff writers, and production crew that help him along the way.
Who does Ike's voice? There have actually been a bunch of kids that have done Ike's voice over the years. Typically, it is a lucky child of a SP staff member.
What did the full list look like on the episode "The List"? This was answered a while ago, but since it's such a popular question, here you go [cutest to ugliest]: 1. Clyde 2. Token 3. Stan 4. Bradley 5. Jason 6. Leroy 7. Kenny 8. Tweek 9. Kevin 10. Jimmy 11. Butters 12. Craig 13. Timmy 14. Francis 15. Cartman 16. Kyle
Will Matt and Trey ever do an episode where Cartman is selected to go on the Real World? Well, we can never be sure what the future holds, but the Boys selection of their 4th friend in "Professor Chaos" was done exactly like a reality TV show. Check it out.
Tuesday, January 13, 2009
I've been searching for an episode where Cartman starts a company that smears poo on the walls of parents. or am I crazy? Ahhh, you mean the Parental Revenge Center of Western America? Cartman starts that business up in "My Future Self n' Me"(616), and poop smearing is his most frequently requested service. Pick your color: Baby Green, Classic Brown, or Nut n' Corn Crunch.
How did you guys do the Obama episode? Did you make two potential episodes or just the one and hoped he would win? That's a great question. And it's answered in our brand new feature "Six Days to South Park". Day six features commentary from the crew on exactly how they made the episode. The commentary will be available on January 20th, which just happens to be inauguration day for President-Elect Obama.
Wednesday, January 7, 2009
When will season 12 come out on DVD? Soon, my friend! The DVD should be hitting the shelves March 10, 2009. Season 12 will be available in both standard definition and HD on Blu-Ray. Stay tuned for more info.
How do u spell the word Kyle couldn't spell in the episode Hooked on Monkey Phonics?? It's spelled "Kroxldyphivc" in the script. But I'm pretty sure that's a word made up by the phonics monkey.
Is there ever an episode where Garisson and Mr.Slave get back 2gether now that he's a man again? Unfortunately, Mr. Slave is off the gay-love market. Slave and Big Gay Al got fabulously married in "Follow That Egg" (910), despite Garrison's efforts to stop it.
Who does the voice of Kenny? Matt Stone.
Tuesday, January 6, 2009
What is the episode in which some guy starts asking the kids weird questions and starts humping a gray doll? I believe you're talking about Detective Jarvis. He's called in to investigate when Chef gets all child-molesty in "The Return of Chef" (1001).
Why does Cartman's hand sometimes look like a penis ? Is that just wishful thinking?
I thought I saw an episode where Cartman made his own band, but i cant find it anywhere. Is there one or am i just crazy? No, you are perfectly sane. This happens in "Christian Rock Hard" (709), after Cartman bets Kyle $10 he can get a platinum album first. Cartman starts a Christian rock band with Butters and Token called "Faith+1", and the rest is history...
The "Cartoon Wars" epic was a factual symphony of delicious irony, and a witty respons to an expanding epidemic regarding the popularity of Family Guy. Whether you were serious in your intent or not, I must ask, has this particular episode sparked any outrage from viewers? Umm...thank you? I dunno, there were way too many big words in there. To answer your question: yes, Cartoon Wars is epic!
