December 19, 2013 - Winter is almost here, so this site is getting its winter coat, lol. Time to put this season into the archives. The only thing to look forward to until Season 17 comes out on video and Season 18 begins is The Stick of Truth, coming in three months. The live tweet for "The Hobbit" didn't happen yesterday as expected. :/ Happy Holidays, Merry Christmas, Happy New Year, and I'll post throughout the year. Peace!
January 27, 2014 - Last Wednesday, South Park Studios presented a Live Tweet for Medicinal Fried Chicken. I still haven't seen one for "The Hobbit."
January 29, 2014 - Five weeks to go!
February 3, 2014 - Viacom is still cracking down on people who post copies of "201" online, so it hardly matters if the copy is unbleeped or not. So last week, the unbleeped version of "201" appeared online and a transcript of the speeches at the end of the episode quickly followed. Here are the words that had Viacom so heavy-handed. As Matt and Trey said, there's no mention of Muhammad in them, and no direct reference to the threats they and Viacom had received the week or two before.
That's because there is no goo, Mr. Cruise. You see, I learned something today. You see, throughout this whole ordeal, we've all wanted to show things we weren't allowed to show. But it wasn't because of some magic goo, it was because of the magical power of threatening people with violence. That's obviously the only true power. If there's anything we've all learned, it's that terrorizing people works.
That's right. Don't you see, gingers? If you don't want to be made fun of anymore, all you need is guns and bombs to get people to stop.
That's right, friends. All you need to do is instill fear and be willing to hurt people and you can get whatever you want. The only true power is violence.
As you can see, terrorizing major comporations like Viacom works too. I was gonna post a link to the audio, but the link no longer works. Also, a video clip of the unbleeped scene was removed from LiveLeak for copyright violation. But if you know where to look, you can find the whole epiosde, unbleeped.
February 16, 2014 - It's been a while since I mirrored the South Park Studios FAQ here, but since there are no new episodes until September, I have time to update it and mirror it again. So, here it is. It seems it hasn't been updated since January 27, 2013, which is about the time the Season 17 premiere was announced, and the time Important Studios was announced. Since then, South Park Studios has tried out a new look. Twice. Last summer, it put up the new site and hid the old one, and it didn't work out too well. In late fall it put up the new site again as the Beta version, and the former site as the Classic version. The Beta version will not have the FAQ - it will have the SPS Wiki... someday. Meanwhile, you can check this site out for all your SP info, as well as its Facebook page, or the South Park Archives Wiki, or the South Park pages on Wikipedia.
February 20, 2014 - South Park Studios doesn't accept any scripts or ideas from outside the Studios. The four South Park Studios FAQs below explain why.
July 23, 2001
I don't get South Park in my area. :( But I do read the scripts and fanfic. I was wondering if the creators had ever used, or thought of using, fanfiction for episodes or inspiration for episodes. Believe me, some people right some seriously South Park worthy stuff. Also, do the guys ever visit fan sites?
Matt and Trey haven't read a spec script or fan fic since the Second Season, mostly to protect themselves from accusations. We visit fan sites from time to time, but I never read any fan fiction.
Septembner 30, 2002
I write a lot, and was wondering if I can send an episode?
No, we currently do not accept episodes from outside sources, sorry.
October 22, 2002
Will you ever take any unsolicited scripts or ideas for episodes?
As of right now we will not accept fan scripts.
May 11, 2011
I recently wrote a script for an idea I had for the show. Do you accept scripts?
Sorry buddy, we unfortunately do not accept script ideas, submissions, or any fan-submitted content. Legally, we are not allowed to, and creatively, we got it on lock-down. Matt and Trey have been writing/directing/producing this show for 15 years, they got this dawg!
March 1, 2014 - Well, tweets in this case.
We've received an update from Ubisoft regarding the censorship of South Park: The Stick of Truth. PC version is censored in... (1/2)
March 3, 2014 - The game will be available in a few hours! Woohoo!
June 26, 2014 - Two days ago, June 24, South Park Studios announced on Facebook and Twitter that Sseason 18 will start on September 24! Thirteen more weeks! Also, the AWESOM-O live tweet from last August has been updated with info from the June 24 retweet.
June 27, 2014 - This morning TV Shows On DVD announced that Season 17 of South Park will arrive in stores on September 16. No cover art released yet.
July 12, 2014 - South Park has its 13th Emmy nomination now, for "Black Friday"!! Also, South Park Studios' site has moved to http://southpark.cc.com/ This would indicate that South Park Studios Classic is gone. Now that Hulu has taken over streaming duties for the site, I will tell you that you get lo-res. ad-supported versions of the episodes on the site, as well as HD, no-ads versions of the episodes behind a paywall ($8 a month, no contract).
July 18, 2014 - apparently, you get ads even with a Hulu Plus account. Hulu has always been a gigantic ad whore, and it's so good at this that it handles ads better than the old SPS player did. Ah well. At least we get two months of free eps (with ads, of course) until the season premiere. On September 24, H+ members will enjoy HD versions of all episodes, while everyone else gets SD versions of maybe 30 random episodes a week. The newest five episodes (HD hopefully), will be available to everyone.
September 1, 2014 - South Park Studios has been putting up the commentaries Matt and Trey have made for every season to date (except for Season 2, 'cause they didn't want to make full-length commentaries), but they come on Hulu now, so they have commercials you can't hide.
