    1. #BehindTheScenes This version of the intro with Timmy singing in it was only used for the 17 episodes in Season 6.
    2. The boys' outfits in this episode served as an inspiration for "South Park: The Stick of Truth".
    3. "And so, the party journey'ed onward! The great wizard, the skillfull ranger, and the covetous Jew!" #SouthPark #ReturnOfTheRing
    4. Yeah... You like that? #HottestPornoEver #SouthPark
    5. #BehindTheScenes #SouthPark Check out this hand-drawn storyboard for this steamy scene with Randy and Sharon.
    6. This is the 1st time we see Butters' basement. Any time there's a new location, it must be desgned and approved before animation starts.
    7. "Oh golly... Hey, what's happenin' down there?" #HottestPornoEver
    8. For a brief moment here, we catch a glimpse of the Hottest Porno Ever Made- on screen is porn star Evan Stone. #BehindTheScenes #SouthPark
    9. This pose of Butters' reaching for his precious required a special pose. Check out this old-school character design:
    10. They're referring to “A Ladder To Heaven”, where Cartman drank Kenny's ashes (thinking it was chocolate milk mix).
    11. Which episode is your favorite? RT for "Black Friday". Fave for "Return of the Fellowship..."
    12. This hiding spot required a special setup. Back then, all the construction paper textures were labeled by hand:
    13. "Backdoor Sluts 9 makes Crotch Capers 3 look like Naughty Nurses 2!!!!" #BackdoorSluts9 #SouthPark
    14. "Precious... Let me see my precious... PLEAAAASSEEEE..." #Butters #ReturnOfTheFellowship
    15. Here, Clyde is the High Elf of Faragon. In #StickOfTruth, he's a Level 14 Warrior. At least, until he gets banished from space and time...
    16. #EasterEgg #SouthPark Did you catch Scott Tenorman in the crowd of 6th Graders?
    17. This is Kevin's debut appearance in #SouthPark. He's appeared a number of times since, most notably in "Fatbeard":

    21. In 2011, fans ranked this episode as #15 on their list of all-time favorite South Park episodes. Where would you rank it?
    22. #BehindTheScenes #SouthPark Check out the character art used while designing Jimmy's "Lord Of The Rings" look:
    23. "Five midgets spanking a man covered with thousand island dressing... Is that making love?" #BackDoorSluts9 #ReturnOfTheFellowship
    24. YOU SHALL NOT P-Puh... You shall not Paaaaa - Paaaaa...
    25. "Go ahead and play Harry BUTTHOLE PUSSY Potter!!!" #Cartman #ReturnOfTheFellowship
    26. #BehindTheScenes Let's kick it back to the production art used in creating that steamy Randy thong scene. Yeahhh...
    27. RT this if you're loving the #ReturnOfTheFellowship Live Tweet!
    28. Kenny's soul is trapped inside Cartman for 4 more episodes, until he finally returns in the very last scene in Season 6's "Red Sleigh Down."
    29. #BehindTheScenes Any alterations to a character, like this filthy version of Butters, requires new art and poses:
    30. Check out this #BehindTheScenes script excerpt from this classic Jimmy scene:
    31. This leader of the 6th Graders' gang gets an ass kicking of his own in "Pre-School", when Trent Boyett gives him a "Texas Chili Bowl".
    32. Randy's given quite a few sex talks. Most recently when he explained how to calculate Adjusted Penis Size in "T.M.I."
    33. "Going #1 or #2 on your lover is something people might do - but you must make sure your partner is okay with it before you start doing it."
    34. One last #BehindTheScenes pic…Check out this character art used in designing Cartman's "Wizard" look:
    35. Info from Matt and Trey

    36. From Matt and Trey: “It was nice because, as we got into it, it felt so much like kids just being kids.” #BehindTheScenes #SouthPark
    37. Matt & Trey said it's like "Good Times With Weapons": Kids take on a role, then we get a spoof. But there's a quest & they take it seriously
    38. Where did the idea come from? Partially based on Matt seeing a porno when he was a kid, and not understanding what it was. #BehindTheScenes
    39. From Trey: “If Matt and I were gonna make any type of Top 15, it would definitely include this episode.” #SouthPark #BehindTheScenes
    40. From Matt & Trey: We LOVE episodes where the kids dress up & act like something, then the story reinforces the idea they’re playing the game
    41. From Matt: “We had to go back & forth with Standards about exactly how we could do the porno stuff & make it ok. I think it was BARELY ok."
    42. This is Matt's favorite: "I love when Cartman calls the kids playing Harry Potter 'fags'. Like THAT’S stupid but Lord of the Rings is cool."
  2. Fans, thanks for joining us for the #ReturnOfTheFellowship live tweet!
