South Park: Most Quoted Episodes ("Manbearpig")
South Park | 3/03/07 | LS

Posted on 03/03/2007 3:58:58 PM PST by LS

Disclaimer: I am not endorsing the language or some of the actions of the cartoon characters on South Park :)

For those of you who have not seen this risque "cartoon" series, the Cartoon Network has run some of the "Most Quoted Episodes" of South Park, and one featured Algore in an episode involving "Manbearpig."

Alore comes to South Park to warn the kids about "Manbearpig" (global warming), a mythical creature that he insists exists and wants them to get worked up about. (No one does). The kids only repeatedly say things like, "I feel sorry for him. He doesn't have any friends.") Although no one has ever seen "Manbearpig," or have a shred of proof it exists, Algore (yes, they use his name) tries to drum up a frenzy of concern. In one scene he is in a cave with a tourist group when someone announces the former vice president is in the group. Out of some 30 people, two applaud.

This was a hysterical episode and, I think, is reflective of what an important part of the teen-to-young adult group ingest as humor. It clearly rejects not only global warming, but the notion that Gore or Hollywood elites should dictate what the rest of us do.

Again, if this isn't your taste in humor, no problem. But if you do find stuff like this funny, get the "Manbearpig" episode on DVD.

When did Cartoon Network buy "South Park" from Comedy Central?

Is it the same season as Big Gay Al? (Disclaimer: this post is in no way implying that there is any living or deceased man, boy, or former vp named Al that has ever been, is now, or will ever be gay.)

It is my understanding that Cartoon Network is re-playing old episodes. I'm pretty sure that's where we saw it, and I went to the CN website, which touted this. But it could be CC.

To be honest, I wasn't all that impressed with that episode as a whole. I did enjoy what they did to portray Algore, however.

Two Days Before The Day After Tomorrow is a much better episode. That one makes fun of the media, The Day After Tomorrow, and global warming loonies all in 30 minutes!

Oh, good, another FreeRepublic South Park love-fest thread. Didn't Ann Coulter's disparaging remark about John Edwards teach us anything? This sort of juvenile humor has no place among conservatives.

This "cartoon" consistently offends the Catholic Church, depicts children cussing, glorifies drunkenness and homosexuality ... all the while holding Al Gore up to be some kind of superhero who destroys an evil monster.

Can someone please remind me while so many so-called "adults" and so-called "conservatives" watch this show?

I loved the "Mystery of the Urinal Deuce" episode this season. In it, they say that 25% of the population is retarded which directly correlates with the percent of the population that believes the 9-11 conspiracy theory.

The episode after the 2000 election Florida debacle was hysterical too. Especially when Mr. Garrison said this to Rosie O'Donut when her nephew tied with Ike for kindergarten president:

"Half the kids in the class didn't vote for your nephew, so what about them? You don't give a crap about them because they're not on your side! People like you preach tolerance and open-mindedness all the time, but when it comes to Middle America, you think we're all evil and stupid country yokels who need your political enlightenment!! WELL, JUST BECAUSE YOU'RE ON TV DOESN'T MEAN YOU KNOW CRAP ABOUT THE GOVERNMENT!!! NOW GET YOUR ASS BACK ON FIRST CLASS AND RESPECT THIS CLASS'S RIGHT TO MAKE UP THEIR OWN MINDS!!! [Rosie and the kids gasp] …Oh, sorry I got a little off the subject, kids. "

Big Gay Al debuted in the first season ("Big Gay Al's Big Gay Boat Ride"), he appeared in several episodes, and he had a decent role in the South Park movie back in 1997. However, he hasn't appeared on South Park since the "Cripplefight" episode in Season Five.

Season 1. Stan's gay dog, Sparky, ran away to "Big Gay Al's Gay Animal Sanctuary". Very funny episode!

South Park is not a "conservative" show. I don't think such a thing exists. South Park is typically anti-establishment and anti-accepted-but-unquestioned-assumptions, which these days translates into being anti-liberal. So there's a lot of common ground between what conservatives have to say and what the show depicts.

If you are easily offended, this show is not for you. But I am an adult, I'd like to think I'm fairly mature, yet I still enjoy the show. BTW, South Park has not glorified dunkenness as far as I know; it hasn't glorified *anything*, in fact. It tends to tear down, rather than glorify. It definitely did not glorify Al Gore - you misunderstood the episode if you think that.

So that makes it OK to depict filthy languaged children and Bush and Jesus defacating on each other and on an American flag? Because it makes fun of everything that's all right?

This show is a direct assault on the values of this country. The humor is on the same level as fart jokes.

Obviously you missed the episode where they drank the smores schnapps during the War of Northern Aggression re-enactment. If that didn't glorify drunkenness, nothing ever has.

It's in syndication on my local Fox affiliate, but is heavily edited. They even edit Sanford and Son on Nick at Nite.

The episode when Tidywinks has to find his way out of Mr. Slave was funny send up of both Paris Hilton and some very deviant practices.

And the episode where Mr. Garrison get's his sex change and realizes that "I am just a man with a mutilated penis".

Bingo! No other show would dare to say such a thing.

You can't be serious. You *really* need to learn to differentiate between depiction and glorification.

"Volcano", Season One. Jimbo and Ned take the boys hunting, and Jimbo tells them that they have to say "It's comin' right for us!!" before they can blast an animal to smithereens, because the democrats passed a law that said you could only kill animals in self defense.

Hence, Cartman's infamous "Democrats p!ss me off!"

Please cite some examples of how they glorify drunkenness and homosexuality. I don't recall either behavior being glorified.

all the while holding Al Gore up to be some kind of superhero who destroys an evil monster.

The episode in question makes Al Gore out to be a delusional idiot and loser. You should do a little research before you post such ignorance.

It's my understanding that the teacher they all look up to is a gay, transgender person who wears a puppet on his hand and sometimes engages in sexual relations with the puppet.

Big Gay Al is a character the children look up to, they even took up for him when the show went after the Boy Scouts.

I cited an example of the glorification of drunkenness in another post.

Al Gore defeated a monster that is "half man, half bear and half pig" and was apparently some kind of super hero because he used the phrase "Excelsior!"

As for your remark about "ignorance" ... what kind of foolish person would waste time doing research about a television show?

Have you ever considered what better things you could do with your time other than watching cartoons?

I wonder what ever happened to that guy, was it - 'Old Cracker' - the South Park hater? He was on every South Park thread years ago.
