The curious, adventure-seeking, fourth grade group of 10 year old boys, Stan, Kyle, Cartman, and Kenny, all join in in buffoonish adventures that sometimes evolve nothing. Sometimes something that was simple at the start, turns out to get out of control. Everything is odd in the small mountain town, South Park, and the boys always find something to do with it.
In early seasons, whenever the children enter the cafeteria and Chef greets them with the "Hello there children!" line, notice his name on his apron is spelled in lowercase 'chef', but the next scene when he is speaking with the children, and the focus is on him behind the servery, notice his name is spelled in uppercase 'CHEF'.

Hello, Mrs. Brovlowski, this is Stan's mom. I was wondering if you might know why my son is trying to split his head open with an ice pick.
Aaaah. I have to get it out.

If the characters sing a song in the episode, it is almost always played over the end credits. See more »
There is a persistent rumor that, in the "Big Gay Al" episode, the line "And these South Park Cows are being absolutely molested by Middle Park. I haven't seen so many children since..." was initially followed by "since Michael Jackson came to town". This rumor is entirely unfounded; numerous tapes made of the episode as broadcast prove this, and nobody has yet to offer any actual evidence to the contrary other than memory. Despite this, the rumor persists. See more »
I remember when these four little boys were nothing but private greeting card art. Now look at them!
In all seriousness, I love this show. This is the funniest adult cartoon there is, and thank GOODNESS Comedy Central took this series and allowed the creators to do "almost" anything. If there was an alternate universe for "Peanuts", you've hit it in "South Park".
There are very few (if none) episodes I didn't like. We all have our favorites, and my number one is still "Cartman Gets an Anal Probe". I laughed until I cried on that one. The next one that is very close to that is last years (2002) Christmas Special when Jesus was "packing" to rescue Santa out of Iraq after he was shot down. This was one of those episodes where I DARE you not to laugh and enjoy it.
The supporting cast about South Park is also stellular. The lives (and minds) that intertwine with Stan, Cartman, Kenny and Kyle are just hilarious. Chef, Mr. Garrison. Kyles Mom and Dad, Cartman's Mother, Butters, Timmy!, Sherrif Bar Brady, Principal Victoria, Wendy, BeBe, and..Big Gay Al..etc....etc..you name it, they are just too much.
Wonderful and ground-breaking (even though the animation isn't state of the art) nothing is out of bounds for these guys...South Park is an instant classic and a great time to be had by all.
