MOSCOW (Reuters) Prosecutors in Russia want to ban the award-winning satirical U.S. cartoon South Park, calling the series "extremist" after receiving viewer complaints, a spokeswoman said on Monday.
South Park, a cartoon aimed at adults and featuring a group of nine-year olds in a Colorado ski town, has courted controversy from its 1997 debut, parodying celebrities, politicians, religion, gay marriage and Saddam Hussein.

I can’t wait for South Park to do Putin.
Move over Saddam, Satan is about to get a new lover.
ROFL. Can I put in my pre-order for the next season on DVD yet?
I will quote the wise sage Cartman. SUCK MY @#$%* YOU COMMIE!!
Ah, South Park, intellectual stimulation for my generation!!
OMG, get out plenty of popcorn. The South Park producers are going to have a field day with oppressive Putin and his commie mob -— they should set a whole series at the Kremlin and make a couple of the characters members of the Poliburo......
It’s official. Liberals have no sense of humor.
The Soviets will just modify the cartoons so Putins kills Kenny all of the time.
It’s Mr.Hankey, the Christmas Pooh,
He Loves Me, I Love You,
There from my parent’s glee he loves you,
Even if your a Jew!
Sometimes he’s nutty,
Sometimes He’s corny,
He can be brown or brownish-green,
but if you eat fiber on Christmas Eve,
He might come to your your town.
He’s Mr.Hankey the Christmas Pooh,
He Loves me...I LOVE YOU!!!!
The offense to the Commies? ... the episode where they are singing Christmas Carols.
In all Communist societies, you must worship the State — worship of an unseen God is verboten and punishable.
and was pretty hilarious too... especially when you try to picture her reaction when she was told about it

He can be brown or greenish-brown"
That is all, carry-on. =)
Speaking of extreme cartoon....we tuned in to FAMILY GUY last night...I know this show is over the top, but last night it was beyond anything I’ve seen on network TV. It’s dirty, it’s outrageous and it’s NOT FOR PRIMETIME. But there it is. Does anyone even care about decency anymore?
Don´t ever, EVER compare South Park to Family Guy..
South Park is nothing like Family Guy. When South Park makes jokes they inherit to a story. Deep situational and emotional jokes based on what is relevant, and have a point. Not just one random, interchangeable joke after another.
You should help stop Family Guy. It is simple television economics, Hildy. All it takes is to kill a show forever: you get one episode pulled. If we can convince the network pull this episode for the sake family values, the the Catholics can demand a show they don´t like pulled. And then people with disabilities can demand another episode pulled. And so on, and so on. Until Family Guy is no more. It´s exactly what happened to the Wernon Shirley.
Family guy is so outrageous it literally leaves your jaw open...how did it even get on the air????
Which episode did you see?
Last night it was when Stewey kidnaps the dog and becomes President of the US.
Putin getting the meat train from satan. LOL
I will order one dozen of those bumper stickers when they are available.
The market is keeping it there. No matter how lame Family Guy is, it has a market share that shows the public wants it on the air.
On the other hand, South Park is so intellectually stimulating, there is little doubt why it is on the air and smokes Family Guy.
I’ve never watched an episode of Family Guy. However, I have seen some clips of it on the web and I did laugh.
I’m not saying it’s not funny..I’m saying it’s not appropriate for early evening network TV.
I understand. :)
You, my FRiend, are a TRUE South Park fan. Did you do that form memory?

Ok, its not really SP related but you will get a kick out of this one!
Language warning always applies at PatDollard.com!!
Go for it Matt and Trey
You better hire food taster anyway LOLOLOL!
OMG I forgot they already did reset on Vlady LOLOL Free Willy episode LOL!
I think Matt and Trey probably working on another episode to really stick it to Vlady
no doubt. The surest way to be “featured” on South Park is to denigrate it publicly.
I was thinking maybe Matt and Trey could do episode where Kenny open up package from Moscow turn out be “present from Vlady”
Oh yes, and with 'Pooty Pu' Putin it won't be difficult to do.
I see a Russian invasion of a small independent nation parody on it's way.
I can’t wait for the new season.
I’m jonesing for some new SP.
“I’ll have what she’s having!”
I cant wait for the new season.
LOL!!!! just caught your reply ...
