Product Description

Amazon.ca

This, volume 1 of three, contains two episodes from the first season of South Park, Comedy Central's wildly successful animated sitcom. In addition, viewers get two very tongue-in-cheek fireside chats with co-creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone. The controversial cartoon gained a devoted cult following for its wonderfully unabashed assaults on dull sitcom formula and political correctness. While the show's animation is beyond primitive, with goofy construction-paper cutouts acting as characters, its writing is hilariously shocking and pushes the envelope of good taste off the table. Episodes explore the small mountain town of South Park through the point of view of four foul-mouthed yet lovable eight-year-olds. They include level-headed co-leaders Stan and Kyle; the fat, terminally pissed-off, and hysterical Eric Cartman; and the hooded, incoherent Kenny (who dies in every episode). As such, it's stuffed with toilet humor, graphic violence, and profanity; but South Park also cleverly subverts TV clichés and acts as a scorching, very frank satire of America's hypocritical attitudes toward social problems like racism, homophobia, jingoism, and neglectful parenting. This volume is a perfect introduction to the show, as it sets up the town's numerous and warped characters and many of South Park's quotable catch phrases. The first, "Cartman Gets an Anal Probe," is basically minor, though funny, as it sends up UFO conspiracy freaks and shows like The X-Files when Kyle's little brother, Ike, is abducted and the boys must get him back. The second, "Volcano," mocks Hollywood's fascination with disaster movies, as an erupting volcano threatens the town. Better, though, is its subplot: when the kids are taken hunting, Stan is unable to pull the trigger, and is ridiculed as weak and sick, thus mocking a prevailing mindset among those who kill for sport. --Dave McCoy

5.0 out of 5 stars Whip out your Cheezy Poofs and watch this! April 26 1999

Format:VHS Tape
South Park is hella cool! It is the funniest cartoon of all time. I must say that the star of the show is the little fatass himself...ERIC CARTMAN! Cartman rules... He's quite a "character"...He's almost real...He's larger than life (in many ways!)...He has the best lines...He has the best wise cracks...He is so adorable and nasty...He is a scene steeler...He's not fat, he's big boned! The other kids are cute too, but none of them have the personna of Cartman. Kenny, who get's killed EVERY episode, is my next favorite. His little orange snow suit is tied so tight around his face that you can't understand a word he says. He's hysterical. Kyle and Stan are the straightmen to Cartman and Kenny. Issac Hayes as the voice of Chef, the schools hormonally challenged dietician, is destined for imortality. If you offend easily, don't watch this. If you are curious to see some clever, albeit horribly crude humor and have a sick sense of humor, give it a try. You'll hella love it!

5.0 out of 5 stars A hilarious hit comedy! Dec 27 1998
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
It made my son laugh untill he cried and went to bed. It made my daughter feel sorry yet also able to laugh at the characters facing there sad life. The movies have lightened me up so much, that there must not be another scetch comedy of cartoons as funny as them on movies and television! I strungly suggest that you should buy this movie not only for your kids, but for the whole family. [including yourself of course!]So what are you waiting for, surf the web for them and when they arrive at your front doorstep, you'll know that the movies the family has ordered will fill your gut with laughter! It can not be descrided by words, how hilarious it can actually get, so go ahead and get the three pack or go slowly and get the one's one at a time, but whatever you and your family do, [of course it's not just for famlies] get all of them at once and watch them over and over again,never ending the laughter and good times!

I AM A SWEET SENSITIVE GIRL TO EVERYONE'S FEELINGS. YET WHEN IT COMES TO THIS SHOW, I'M A SOUTH PARK-A-HOLIC. I DON'T UNDERSTAND WHY SO MANY PARENTS HATE THIS SHOW. MY PARENTS ARE RICH AND REPUBLICAN, AND THEY EVEN THINK IT IS THE FUNNEST SHOW. THESE CARTOONS ARE SO COOL, AND I HAVE NOT MISSED ANY EPISODE TO THIS DATE! IT IS SO INFORMATIVE BECAUSE IT EDUCATES US ABOUUT THE REAL WORLD AND MAKES IT SEEM OK TO DO STUPID THINGS. I HAVE EVEN GOTTEN A NAVEL RING AND A TATTOO ENCIRCLING IT SAYING "OM MY GOD, THEY KILLED KENNY." I HAVE ALSO GOTTEN ONE ON MY ARM WITH ALL THE CHARACTERS FROM THE SHOW, AND EVEN HAVE A SOUTH PARK BIKINI! THIS SHOW INFLUENCES AND INSPIRES MANY IN INTERESTING WAYS. I HAVE ALL THE EPISODES ON TAPE, BUT THESE ARE SOME OF THE BEST! GET IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This show may appear to be shotty and gen-X, however in my opinion it goes deeper than than and is a well thought out weapon against the people in our society who are upright and "PC". This show screams "calm down!" to all those opposed to dark comedy. This particular episode focusses on the the character know as "Cartman"'s desperate search for his genetic father. This search leads him to many of the male supporting cast and the big question of the show is: Who is Cartman's Father? You would normally expect to find out. Lets just say the plots takes a sickening twist-turn when, at the end, the above question is answered...in a perhaps debatable way...and the above question is changed entirly. This episode is very funny and almost all the other are equally as hysterical.

4.0 out of 5 stars The one that started it all May 21 2001
Format:VHS Tape
This has the very first two episodes. If you look close enough, you can see how different it looks from now. Also, Mr. Hat doesn't have eyes! I hope the new season starts soon. I keep finding reruns I've seen already. I also wish that there could be South Park marathons during the day on Comedy Central, but it's rated TV-MA LSV, so kids can't see it. I know that stars don't sound like themselves on the show purposely unless they do their own voices, but Phil Collins' on the first episode with Timmy, the kid with cerebal palsy, sounded so fake. So did Kathie Lee Gifford and Yoko Ono.

5.0 out of 5 stars You`ve gotta laugh! June 7 1999
Format:VHS Tape
This episode was the first ever and was fab. The jokes are clever and even the ones you have to look for are hilarious. I`ve seen every episode of South Park and I still think Cartman gets an anal probe is the best. Even my mum found it funny!! There is a lot of controveresy over the explicit language,but I have one message :its rated 18 isn`t it? Thats what ratings are for! I think this is a brilliant first episode as it really shows you what to expect from the other episodes,and even though I thought this was the best,you won`t be disapointed if you liked this.

5.0 out of 5 stars poke tushy! Dec 21 1998
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
South Park is the funniest cartoon ever made. It is provocative and very weird. For those who don't know (if that exists), South Park is the story of 4 eight year old boys who live in a little mountain town in Colorado. When you look at South Park the first time it could seem a little kindergarten (poo-poo, we-we) but if you listen to the dialogs you'll discover that the humor is very intelligent. If you are a fan of South Park or if you like movies like Mel Brook's first movies, this boxed set is a must have.

If you are a fan of the tv show, or if you saw the movie and tried the tv show and liked it then get the videos that have some of the best South Park episodes on them.

You can download the real South Park pilot and watch it with Real Player. Go to Dogpile and do a file search for soxmas.zip. It is the real pilot.
