When I think of Christmas the first thing that always comes to mind is Trey Parker's & Matt Stone's "South Park." These two geniuses have worked tirelessly to make "South Park" synonymous with Jesus. But really, "South Park" always has the best Christmas eps. Come to think of it, I'd have to say that "South Park" is the very best original TV program currently on the air. Everything else simply pales in comparison because this animated series mixes just the right blend of satire and comedy to form a modern-day masterpiece. All of the characters are incredibly likeable because everyone can relate to them. But, my number-one favorite character is none other than Cartman. Cartman is a total monster but he also has a very sweet side to him.
As you may know, this DVD was just released last month and is the newest "South Park" DVD; coming out just in time for Christmas! I purchased this for a good friend of mine that loves SP. He is actually out of the country traveling and hasn't seen an ep in ages so I think this would be a very welcome addition to his video library, or anyone else's for that matter. I really think that just about anyone can enjoy SP, like the back of the jacket says, "gather' round the fire and watch these classic 'South Park' episodes."
There are a total of 7 eps, included on 1 disc. As usual, the picture and sound quality is amazing and these are the original episodes that you remember from Comedy Central!
Here's all the eps that "Christmas Time in South Park" includes:
Mr. Hankey The Christmas Poo, air date: December 17, 1997
This show is from Season 1 . In this X-mas-themed show the kids put on a Christmas play. When Kyle's mom hears about it she is livid. You may recall, in this ep, Cartman sings his famous song in honor of Mrs. Broflovski.
Merry Christmas Charlie Manson, air date: December 9, 1998
This ep is from Season 2 . The boys travel with Cartman and his mom to Eric's relatives for Christmas. While there, they meet up with Charlie Manson.
Mr. Hankey's Christmas Classics, air date: December 1, 1999
This ep is from Season 3 . The show is hosted by none other than Mr. Hankey who introduces various Christmas songs. This ep was in honor of Mary Kay Bergman (best known as the original voice of Shelley Marsh,) who committed suicide shortly before this was broadcast.
A Very Crappy Christmas, air date: December 20, 2000
This ep is from Season 4 . When Mr. Hankey doesn't show up the boys go down into the sewer to look for him. In this classic Christmas ep, we get introduced to Mr. Hankey's entire family.
Red Sleigh Down, air date: December 11, 2002
This ep is from Season 6 . The boys go along with Santa and Jesus to Iraq on a Christmas adventure. But as usual, all Cartman is concerned about is himself.
It's Christmas in Canada, air date: December 17, 2003
This ep is from Season 7 . The boys travel to Canada to get Kyle's little bother back. Take special notice when Eric and Kyle fight. It's so funny when Eric screams, "meeehm" just like a little b**ch!
Woodland Critter Christmas, air date: December 15, 2004
This ep is from Season 8 . Kyle is caught up in a Christmas fairytale with those cute little Woodland Critters. I'd say out of all the SP Christmas eps this one is by far the most disturbing!
HO, HO, HO!!!
