South Park

South Park's residents

"South Park" is a modern animated sitcom created by Trey Parker and Matt Stone for Comedy Central. The show debuted in August 1997 with great success as it consistently earned the highest ratings of any basic cable program, and the show remained Comedy Central's highest-rated program through its fourteenth season. Intended for mature audiences, the show became infamous for its crude animation & humor and its satirical observations on a wide range of topics. The main characters of the show are four 8-year-old boys named Stan Marsh, Kyle Broflovski, Eric Cartman, and Kenny McCormick.

The show is a favorite TV program of Chris Sawin (who owns all 13 boxed seasons) and Edward Motley, either of whom can consume an entire Anime Chat with discussions of the show. The franchise was so popular from the beginning that it hit the big screen in July 1999 with its first film called South Park: Bigger, Longer, Uncut, the storyline of which was mostly incorporated within Season Three. Although its popularity has decreased, "South Park" has been nominated for an Emmy Award in the category of Outstanding Animated Program (For Programming Less Than One Hour) on nine occasions, winning the award four times for "Best Friends Forever" in 2005, "Make Love, Not Warcraft" in 2007, "Imaginationland" in 2008, and "Margaritaville" in 2009.

Additionally, the show is still a source of occasional controversy, including "It Hits the Fan" in January 2001 (in which the characters said "shit" over 160 times), "The Passion of The Jew" in March 2004 (in which Kyle Broflovski watched "The Passion of the Christ"), "Trapped in the Closet" from November 2005 (in which Scientologists thought Stan Marsh was the reincarnation of L. Ron Hubbard), "Hell on Earth 2006" from October 2006 (which saw a recently departed Steve Irwin attending a costume party in Hell), and "200"/"201" from April 2010 (which saw the town tiptoe around depictions of the Prophet Muhammad).
