The 25 Best South Park Episodes, from Imaginationland to Casa Bonita (2023)

Many adult animation programs seem to be holding upforever, but the most impressive thing about theRace of Decades"South Park" is the show's willingness to evolve and change. Of course, the core characteristics of Trey Parker and Matt Stone's Comedy Central series remained the same: the foul-mouthed dialogue, the offensive humor, the surrealist tendencies, and the core cast of four middle school students who carried over from the first through the 300th episode of the show.

But the exploits Stan, Kyle, Cartman and Kenny pull off in their Colorado mountain town these days look very different from when the series debuted in 1997. Over the course of seasons - and decades - Parker and Stone remained the show's primary creators, and looking back at them is one way to keep track of thather development as a writer. After three seasons that heavily relied on bathroom humor (although the fart and poop jokes wouldn't have gone away from the show), the two proved impressive satirists, and "South Park" morphed into a hard-hitting, topical comedy that addresses almost every topic. controversy and controversy. American question within reach.

There were other changes as the seasons progressed. Characters have been retired (R.I.P Chef) or taken a backseat, and others (most prominently Randy and Butters) have grown into the four featured protagonists. For a few seasons, the series veered away from its episodic format and embraced ongoing storylines, with mixed results. Currently, the regular seasons of South Park have been cut, but a number of special Paramount+ episodes are coming. It's a strategy that worksdrawn polemics, but it wouldn't be "South Park" if people didn't argue about something.

While South Park has managed to stay relatively fresh across 26 seasons, not all episodes are created equal. Due to the notoriously fast production schedule and last-minute spoofs, the series is able to comment on scandals and news faster than many other animated series on television. It also means that many episodes don't have much staying power beyond the year or month (hell, even the week) that they aired. In some cases, the jokes don't really resonate in hindsight; see "ManBearPig," which poked fun at global warming activism and fared so poorly that Parker and Stone made a sequel twelve years later to apologize for it.

Immersing yourself in South Park is more of a challenge than simply watching the show from start to finish. While there are some funny episodes in the first three seasons (e.g., "Cartman's Mom Is a Dirty Bitch"), they're often a chore, and it takes Parker and Stone some time to really understand the characters and their humor and theirs refine texts. . So if you want to immerse yourself in South Park, your best bet is to get caught up in one of the show's crown jewel episodes - and thankfully, there's no shortage of great episodes.

The best episodes of South Park stand out for a variety of reasons. Some are memorable as important milestones for the series and its characters, while others caused significant ripples in pop culture. Some are innovative and visually creative events, others are regular episodes featuring the funniest and most entertaining scripts on television. South Park will likely be around for as long as Parker and Stone live, so there's no better time to start watching than the present.

Here are the 25 best South Park episodes of all time, from "Casa Bonita" to "Awesom-O." We also named the MVPs for each episode.

  • 25. "Gnomes" (Season 2, Episode 17)

    The 25 Best South Park Episodes, from Imaginationland to Casa Bonita (1)

    Sometimes it only takes oneexcellentJoke to make an episode a classic. "Gnome" is a highly entertaining episode to start the season as the children investigate a secret race of gnomes stealing children's underwear.

    But when the dwarves unveil the "business plan" that motivates them to steal underwear, the episode leads to one of the most quoted moments of the entire series: Phase 1. Collecting underwear. Level 2. ? Stage 3. Profit. Whenever someone uses this legendary meme format to mock a company, thank Stone and Parker for it.

    MVP episode: Phase 1: Write the MVP section of the “Gnome” episode synopsis. Level 2: ? Stage 3: Win.

  • 24. "Tweek x Craig" (Season 19, Episode 6)

    The 25 Best South Park Episodes, from Imaginationland to Casa Bonita (2)

    Despite its reputation as an edgelord, "South Park" actually has a fairly large queer following - especially online, where you can find fanart and fanfic that bring the guys together in just about every possible combination. "Tweek x Craig" is Stone and Parker's meta-cry for this subset of fans, and the result is a lot sweeter and heartfelt than you'd ever expect.

    When South Park Elementary receives an influx of Asian exchange students, the girls are introduced to the Japanese art style "yaoi" (essentially a gay-themed anime/manga created by women for women) and immediately begin creating Tweek submission artworks and Craig: two rather third-rate characters who have only sparsely interacted with each other over the past few seasons. The art soon spreads across the city, convincing everyone that the two are indeed a couple — and since everyone wants to show how tolerant and LGBTQ-friendly they are, the adults become obsessed with supporting the two fourth-graders.

    Tweek and Craig's desperate pleas to tell everyone they're not really a couple are ignored, creating an apt parody of both surf culture and fandom. It also vigorously extracts the over-the-top melodrama that results, complete with a hilariously goofy montage of Peter Gabriel's The Book of Love. But the episode also doesn't patronize its fans or insult their intelligence, instead ultimately portraying transportation as a silly but positive pastime that can bring people together. While the ending, while adorable, remains ambiguous, later episodes confirm that Tweek and Craig are a real couple, in a sort of fanservice that seems to stem from genuine appreciation rather than flattery.

    MVP episode:The "South Park" fandom. In the run-up to the episode, Stone and Parker asked viewers to submit original artwork for Tweek and Craig, and all of the pair's drawings featured in the story are from the submissions they received. It was worth it because South Park fans are mad geniuses and the artwork on display alternates between adorable, ridiculous and raunchy at NSFW levels.

  • 23. "Dead Kids" (Season 22, Episode 1)

    The 25 Best South Park Episodes, from Imaginationland to Casa Bonita (3)

    "Dead Kids," the brutally dark satire of school shootings in "South Park," focuses on Stan's parents as Randy becomes increasingly concerned that Sharon is being unpredictable and overly emotional. Why is she so upset in this episode? Because at South Park Elementary School, there's an average of one school shooting per day, and she's afraid Stan will end up dead.

    But Sharon's fear is her own; Stan, his friends, and the faculty go about their school days even when there's an active shooter on campus, while Randy and his friends are more concerned about rusting playground equipment than their kids' lives are in danger. As Sharon breaks down in despair trying to deal with the wave of gun violence, Randy concludes it's all because she's on her period.

    It's a genuinely disturbing story, but also utterly absurd, as Sharon's perfectly legitimate fears are dismissed in increasingly ridiculous ways because everyone else is just too insensitive to care. It's seldom that the South Park writers' approach to a topical issue deserves the label "sensitive," but Dead Kids manages to gracefully handle school shootings while still being very, very funny.

    (Video) South Park Fractured But Whole Full Movie

    MVP episode:Sharon making so much more and her voice actress April Stewart doing a great job in this episode.

  • 22. "The List" (Season 11, Episode 14)

    The 25 Best South Park Episodes, from Imaginationland to Casa Bonita (4)

    Unsurprisingly, for a show created by two men, South Park is an extremely manly show. All four main actors are male, as are most of the prominent supporting actors. And while that's not necessarily a bad thing, it does mean that the rare episodes that focus on the female cast end up feeling a bit sketchy and inadequate at times.

    Not so with The List, a hilariously underrated gem that uses the South Park girls' penchant for ranking boys, purses and friends as the launchpad for a political thriller. After Butters discovers a ranking of fourth graders for cuteness, Kyle is devastated to realize he's in last place and becomes an outsider in the schoolyard. A worried Stan asks his ex Wendy to reconsider the rankings to cheer up his best friend, and in the process the two uncover a very serious conspiracy by the Listing Committee to manipulate the voting results for their own personal gain. The series takes this ridiculous setup completely seriously, and Stan and Wendy's complicated feelings about the union give it enough emotional tension to be as compelling as it is goofy.

    MVP episode:Bebe, Wendy's best friend, who becomes the insane villain of the story, eating up a lot of scenery in the process.

  • 21. "The Simpsons Already Made It" (Season 6, Episode 7)

    The 25 Best South Park Episodes, from Imaginationland to Casa Bonita (5)

    The Simpsons Did It Already captures the plight of comedy writers around the world as they try to come up with original ideas when The Simpsons has been on the air for over 30 years. After Butters as his alter ego, Professor Chaos, devises a plan to block out the sun and take over the world, he learns the plot was a plot in the episode "Who Shot Mr. Burns?". Desperate to be original, he watches every single The Simpsons, but is unable to come up with stories that aren't addressed in the series. The stress causes him to break down, seeing everyone around him as characters from Matt Groening's series.

    Meanwhile, in a fun meta twist, the boys accidentally create a race of miniature sailors in direct reference to a story arc from a Treehouse of Horror episode of The Simpsons. The episode ends with some surprisingly genuine writing tips for anyone watching the show: Don't worry about doing something completely new, because The Simpsons (and probably South Park, too) have already done so.

    MVP episode:You could call an MVP, but what did this character do? It probably happened on The Simpsons.

  • 20. "Woodland Critter Christmas" (Season 8, Episode 14)

    The 25 Best South Park Episodes, from Imaginationland to Casa Bonita (6)

    In the early years, South Park released a Christmas episode almost once per season. But after Woodland Critter Christmas, that tradition was discontinued and the show didn't return to the holiday until ten full seasons later. The reason could well be that this terrible parody of the nativity scene just couldn't be topped.

    The eponymous Woodland Critters, talking animals Stan discovered in the woods, are disturbingly sugar-cute parodies of the kind of characters you see in family Christmas specials, and when they convince Stan to help them prepare for the birth of their "savior." "To help," it says. It's pretty clear things aren't going to end well. Soon, Stan is drawn into a series of dangerous and deadly missions to prevent the apocalypse and the birth of the Antichrist, and the creatures descend into savage murder and anarchy. Whether you love Christmas or hate it, the way the episode twists the Christmas treats genre into a frightfully hilarious monstrosity is great fun, and there's a genuinely surprising twist on what's really going on: a twist , which simply tops off the trip more fun.

    MVP episode:Santa Claus who is an armed banger and the savior of the earth in this story.

  • 19. "You Have 0 Friends" (Season 14, Episode 4)

    The 25 Best South Park Episodes, from Imaginationland to Casa Bonita (7)

    Released the same year as David Fincher's The Social Network, You Have 0 Friends is arguably the second best work of art created on Facebook. The episode, which skewers the peer pressure and FOMO of social media, focuses on Stan trying to resist access to Facebook only to be attracted to his classmates.

    Soon all of your real-life relationships will be defined by your Facebook profile; He is pressured by his father to add him as a friend and his girlfriend Wendy breaks up with him after he forgets to change his relationship status. But when he tries to delete the profile, he gets sucked into Facebook's software and has to face a monstrous form of his own online profile. Even if you haven't been on Facebook since 2015, the episode's perfect parody of the transactional nature of social media is still impressive.

    MVP episode:Kip Dordy, the loser boy at school who has no Facebook friends before Kyle takes pity on him and adds him to the platform, making for a surprisingly adorable subplot in an already great episode.

  • 18. „Miss Teacher Fucks a Boy“ (Staffel 10, Folge 10)

    The 25 Best South Park Episodes, from Imaginationland to Casa Bonita (8)

    Seknow your memeIt's safe to assume that the answer to number 69 "Nice" is from that 2006 episode. Even if you don't believe it, Miss Teacher Bangs a Boy is still mandatory. The episode focuses on Kyle's 4-year-old brother Ike, who begins an "affair" with his delusional preschool teacher. When Kyle finds out Ike is being cared for, he's furious, but police and authorities respond to news that a boy is having sex with his teacher by simply saying "cool."

    It's a crude premise, but an undeniably funny parody of people who condone child kidnapping, and it includes a bizarre and hilarious subplot in which Kyle is forced to side with newly appointed prefect Cartman, who is furious with Ike's teacher is ... but because she kissed him during class in the hallway. And as uncomfortable as the sight of little Ike on "romantic" dates with a grown woman is, the bond between him and Kyle adds real warmth to the plot.

    MVP episode:Ike, for being as lovable as ever, and for his deliciously venomous "you died to me" statement to Kyle after his brother revealed his "affair."

  • 17. "Butter's Own Episode" (Season 5, Episode 14)

    The 25 Best South Park Episodes, from Imaginationland to Casa Bonita (9)

    Pretty much what the title says: "Butters Own Episode" marked the point where Butters went from being a supporting character to being a full-fledged main character of the series. Following the episode in which Kenny "finally" died (it lasted until the end of season 6), this part abandons the four main cast and tells a story that focuses solely on the sweet, innocent Butters, who accidentally ruined his parents' marriage uncovering his father's homosexuality. Affairs for your mother on her birthday.

    Butters' mother is so upset by the news that she tries to kill her own son by throwing him in the river in her car. While Butters (who believes it was an accident) survives and tries to return home, his parents try to cover up the "murder," claiming he was kidnapped by "some Puerto Rican guy." The whole twisted family dynamic between Butters and his parents is the perfect mix of funny and heartbreakingly sad, and the episode achieves its goal of turning Butters into a pathetically incompetent hero worth getting carried away with.

    (Video) Woodland Critters Best Moments! South Park

    MVP episode:Who wrote the sitcom theme parody used for the episode? Who is the kid with the heart full of magic? Everyone knows it's Butters! (It's me!)

  • 16. "Fishsticks" (Season 13, Episode 5)

    The 25 Best South Park Episodes, from Imaginationland to Casa Bonita (10)

    It's not hard to parody an egomaniac like Kanye West, but Fishsticks might have the funniest celebrity parody in the entire series. The plot is the perfect absurdist constellation that South Park specializes in: after Jimmy makes up a joke about how wanting to put fish sticks in your mouth makes you a "gay fish", the joke spreads around town and eventually becomes a full-fledged national sensation.

    The main plot of the episode revolves around Cartman's attempts to appreciate Jimmy's role, but the part that everyone remembers is Kanye's desperate attempts to get the joke, which sends the rapper into a murderous rage. The episode perfectly mirrors Kanye's narcassism with Cartman's and was so influential on the real Kanye that he referenced it in three episodes.fully anders Lieder.

    MVP episode:When the episode aired, most would say Kanye, but considering what's happened to the real-life rapper since then, you have to give Jimmy credit (as well as credit his joke). .

  • 15. „Black Friday“, „A Song of Ass and Fire“, „Titties and Dragons“ (Temporada 17, Episoden 7-9)

    The 25 Best South Park Episodes, from Imaginationland to Casa Bonita (11)

    From time to time, South Park dedicates an episode to the large group of children playing imaginary games, whether it's embarking on a Tolkien-style adventure or starting their own superhero society. The best by far is the three-part Console Wars trilogy, which parodies the main arguments that emerged at the launch of PS4 and Xbox One, as well as the third season of Game of Thrones.

    With Black Friday looming over South Park, the boys slip into the roles of medieval knights and wizards (and in Kenny's case, the beautiful Lady McCormick) and plan their attempts to buy one of the new video game consoles. But as a rift between those who want Xboxes and those who want PS4s becomes apparent, factions form in a console war: a conflict that may seem ridiculous but is a bit too far-fetched for real gamers.

    Are these episodes likely to herald the release of the South Park video game The Stick of Truth the following year? Pretty sure. But that doesn't mean they don't rock.

    MVP episode:Kyle and Stan's friendship is often the closest to an emotional core in South Park, and the breaking of their friendship on the opposing sides they find themselves on in Console Wars adds some real challenge and meaning to the trilogy.

  • 14. "The Tale of Scrotie McBoogerballs" (Season 14, Episode 2)

    The 25 Best South Park Episodes, from Imaginationland to Casa Bonita (12)

    "Scrotie McBoogerballs" has a slight meta quality that challenges how much controversial and "edgy" art has any real meaning and how much is just plain bold to be bold. Furious after reading The Catcher in the Rye for English class and finding the controversial content outdated, the boys write their own insanely vulgar book that will make anyone who reads it puke. They think it's Butters' work when Stan's parents find it, but much to their surprise, the grown-ups love it: finding meaning and satire where there is none. The book soon becomes a massive, critically acclaimed bestseller, which the boys are desperate to ban.

    It's one of the worst episodes of "South Park" - among other goals outside of J.D. Salinger viciously mocks Sarah Jessica Parker, who stars in it.had problems with it— but it's also a stark story about the author's intent. Even if you don't think "The Catcher in the Rye" is just "a whiny, annoying teenager talking about how lame he is," there's still a lot to love about this episode.

    MVP episode:Butters, whose reaction to reading "The Catcher in the Rye" is to pick up a knife and repeat "Kill John Lennon, kill John Lennon" at the episode's funniest moment.

  • 13. "Major Boobage" (Season 12, Episode 3)

    The 25 Best South Park Episodes, from Imaginationland to Casa Bonita (13)

    After Kenny's iconic, once-per-episode deaths were cut from the series, Parker and Stone had some trouble keeping the silent star relevant. So it's always a treat when Kenny is promoted from background to lead in his own episode, and Major Boobage might be the perfect use for him.

    As a result, Kenny becomes addicted to the latest drug trend: the high on cat pee (it's called "cheesing" because it's "appropriate"). Kenny becomes addicted because the high causes him to have hallucinatory images of a busty woman in space. Inspired by '80s Heavy Metal, the animation is absolutely beautiful and effectively puts an end to the anti-drug crusades and special episodes where the adults of South Park banish the town's cats to prevent more cheese shops.

    MVP episode:Gerald, Kyle's father, who leads the anti-drug crusade but is hiding some important secrets that are best left intact.

  • 12. „The Losing Edge“ (Staffel 9, Folge 5)

    The 25 Best South Park Episodes, from Imaginationland to Casa Bonita (14)

    A brilliant inversion of sports movie tropes, The Losing Edge sees the boys compete for their little league baseball team in the state's postseason tournament. The problem is that they all hate baseball and are desperate to lose so they can quit playing: a feat that proves more difficult than expected when every other team in the league is also trying to improve their games. Anyone who has ever been forced into an extracurricular activity by their parents can relate.

    MVP episode:Randy is a character who would end up dominating South Park, but works best in a supporting role. His subplot in The Losing Edge — training to play his parents at their kids' Little League games — is perhaps his best (half) hour on the series, especially when it ties in well with the main plot right at the finale of the boy merges.

  • 11. "Awesom-O" (Season 8, Episode 2)

    The 25 Best South Park Episodes, from Imaginationland to Casa Bonita (15)

    One of the reasons Butters, the cheesy and innocent school misfit, became the series' fifth main character is because he and Cartman's opposite personalities create comedic situations.

    One of his best episodes is "Awesom-O," in which Cartman disguises himself as the titular robot to prank Butters, only to be forced to continue the charade when he discovers Butters has an incriminating videotape on him . As in many "South Park" episodes, the situation spirals out of control until the US military hunts down Awesom-O. But the comedic chemistry between Cartman and Butters ensures that "Awesom-O" forms the solid foundation of the story.

    (Video) Randy lures the teenagers out with weed and grenades them.

    MVP episode:Britney Spears, Cartman's muse and inspiration for his incredibly embarrassing blackmail video.

  • 10. "Member Berries" (Season 20, Episode 1)

    The 25 Best South Park Episodes, from Imaginationland to Casa Bonita (16)

    The Season 20 story arc, which parodied the 2016 election, went haywire after Donald Trump's surprise real-life victory. Parker and Stone had to rework the entire episode the night before it aired, but the season kicked off with one of the best final-era episodes in the show's history, cleverly choosing Colin Kaepernick's online trolling national anthem protests and the "star." Wars sequels and other reboots.

    As the girls at South Park Elementary school organize a volleyball game protest against a sexist online troll, Mr. Garrison (a Trump parody) says he's running for president with no real plans. Meanwhile, J.J. Abrams is enlisted to restart the national anthem and bring America back. There's a lot going on at once, but the campy nature of "Member Berries" makes it a perfect time capsule for 2016 itself, when the elections were in full swing and America was feeling more out of control than ever.

    MVP episode:The titular Berries: bizarre talking bunches of grapes that prompt their eaters to remember random pop culture tropes like "Alien Nation" and "Akira" before revealing a downright uncute racist and homophobic streak.

  • 9. „Trapped in the Closet“ (Temporada 9, Folge 12)

    The 25 Best South Park Episodes, from Imaginationland to Casa Bonita (17)

    Of all the "South Park" episodes, "Trapped in the Closet" probably had the greatest impact on the real world: it single-handedly introduced many viewers to the Church of Scientology and played a huge role in shaping the religious organization's public image Pop Culture.

    As projects like "Going Clear" continued to delve into Scientology, the plot of "South Park" season 9, in which Stan is recruited into Scientology after his staff claim he is the reincarnation of L. Ron Hubbard, does not appear progress well enough. But Parker and Stone were brave at the time to broach the subject before the Church's teachings (as "Jane Smith" in the credits) is one of the most scathing parodies "South Park" has ever done.

    It's virtually impossible to watch the episode and separate it from the many controversies it generated: most notably the departure of chef Isaac Hayes' late voice actor. Hayes left the show after the Church of Scientology allegedly forced him to make a decision while he was recovering from a stroke. That's what this episode is all about, and if there's one bit that proves the current mood on South Park isn't just so risqué, it's this.

    MVP episode:Tom Cruise would have been unhappy with this episode, portrayed as a grinning syncope who literally can't get out of the closet. But the title part is one of the funniest gags of the episode, and the way it escalates to the point of involving Nicole Kidman, John Travolta, and R. Kelly (a joke that definitely feels gross right now) is a memorable one Sight.

  • 8. "Good Times With Guns" (Season 8, Episode 1)

    The 25 Best South Park Episodes, from Imaginationland to Casa Bonita (18)

    It's always exciting when "South Park" adds a bit of visual highlight to an episode with its deliberately crude animation. Good Times with Weapons is one of the most well-known examples, blending the series' papercut art style with various sequences rendered with a sober but undeniably impressive anime sheen.

    The episode cleverly reduces the grandeur of these sequences with a ridiculous story in which the boys acquire martial arts weapons to play ninja, only to immediately shuriken Butters and be forced to hide him. Outside of gymnastics, it's a simple build, but watching the kids as tough martial artists who complain about their parents grounding them is always funny.

    MVP episode:Professor Chaos, Butter's adorably incompetent supervillain alter ego whose attempts to be the nemesis to the boys end in disastrous failure.

  • 7. "Cartoon Wars" (Season 10, Episodes 3-4)

    The 25 Best South Park Episodes, from Imaginationland to Casa Bonita (19)

    "South Park" isn't afraid to poke fun at its adult cartoon counterparts; Watch The Simpsons Did It Already, to learn how the legendary series has shaped every story in the world. But in The Cartoon Wars, the show's first two-part episode, the show was really about Family Guy.

    The episodes focus on Cartman's quest to cancel the Fox animated series (which he despises) by protesting the upcoming portrayal of the Islamic prophet Mohammed. Though Stone and Parker's dislike for "Family Guy" shines through — the Quahog series' signature gags are all burned out — the episode is surprisingly nuanced. In essence, it argues that censorship should not take place even if the drug being censored is a drug.

    Unfortunately, "Cartoon Wars" is one of three episodes not available to stream due to the portrayal of Muhammad (the others being "Super Best Friends" and the two-part storyline "200" and "201"), which is a parody of censorship spike. even harder.

    MVP episode:The Family Guy writing team Manatees is one of the wildest jokes in the entire history of the series.

  • 6. "You're Getting Old" (Season 15, Episode 7)

    The 25 Best South Park Episodes, from Imaginationland to Casa Bonita (20)

    There are many episodes of South Park where the protagonists' adolescence is irrelevant, but the stories that truly explore the ups and downs of growing up are some of the show's best. Few capture the experience of aging more aptly than "You're Getting Old," which hits the nail on the head: It sucks.

    Shit is pretty much all Stan experiences by the time he turns ten and his favorite genre of music (“Tween Wave”) starts sounding like farts. Then his favorite food starts to taste like poo, and eventually even his best friends literally feel like shit. Elsewhere, Randy - desperate to prove he's still cool with kids - pulls off another reckless ruse to become a teenage wave artist, but this time his antics have real consequences for him and his wife Sharon.

    The episode ends with a surprise surprise that is completely deleted one episode later, but that doesn't detract from its effectiveness as a standalone story. You're Getting Old is one of the few episodes of South Park that makes you cry with emotion instead of laughing.

    (Video) The Best Episodes From South Park Season 11 ➊

    MVP episode:Stevie Nicks for the warm, sweet tones of "Landslide."

  • 5. "The Death of Eric Cartman" (Season 9, Episode 6)

    The 25 Best South Park Episodes, from Imaginationland to Casa Bonita (21)

    This is the distorted version of "South Park" in It's a Wonderful Life. "The Death of Eric Cartman" finds the title character in confusion, having become convinced that he has died and is now a ghost only Butters can see. In reality, all of his other friends decided to ignore him after he ate the skin of a KFC chicken.

    Desperate to "pass it on," Cartman recruits a reluctant Butters with a mission to atone for his crimes, which could be heartbreaking if he showed genuine remorse for his heinous acts. The episode's central misconception is rife with references to Cartman's greatest hits and is backed with plenty of humor, making him and Butters the perfect comedic duo.

    MVP episode:Of all the South Park parents, Butters's are by far the most confusing, and his solution to her son's apparent ghost seeing (and sent him to an abusive institution) is the perfect dark comedy culmination of this episode .

  • 4. "Imaginationland" (Season 11, Episodes 10-12)

    The 25 Best South Park Episodes, from Imaginationland to Casa Bonita (22)

    This Emmy-winning trilogy of episodes is South Park at its most disturbing. When the boys discover a goblin in the forest, they are whisked away to Imaginationland: a special world where all fictional creatures live and thrive. But when terrorists attack, the line between good and evil characters blurs in Imaginationland and the children are forced to go on a mission at the behest of the US government - while Butters is chosen by Aslan from The Chronicles of Narnia as the chosen one to do the save kingdom.

    It's a true epic full of innuendos, action and lots of gore against beloved characters. Also, since "South Park" will always be "South Park", Cartman spends the entirety of "Imaginationland" making Kyle suck his balls because of a bet. Perfect TV.

    MVP episode:There are so many cameo appearances, jokes and characters in these three episodes that it's impossible to pick one that stands out. But the Mayor of Imaginationland's theme song, which is just the word "Imagination" chanted over and over again, is a joke that doesn't get old.

  • 3. "Make Love, Not Warcraft" (Season 10, Episode 8)

    The 25 Best South Park Episodes, from Imaginationland to Casa Bonita (23)

    World of Warcraft isn't quite the cultural behemoth it was in 2006, but Make Love, Not Warcraft hasn't aged a day. One of the best portrayals of video games on all television, the Emmy-winning episode captures everything that makes games fun, annoying, and most importantly, addictive.

    Featuring stunning graphical machinima recreations of the actual World of Warcraft game, created with the help of game publisher Blizzard, the kids' mission to defeat a MMORPG troll who is killing every player he comes in contact with takes the form of an epic fantasy and repressed sports film - complete with a training sequence in which the four painfully increase their strength by killing boars, with disastrous effects on their health.

    Few South Park episodes can be described as "loving," but Make Love, Not Warcraft is as full of love as it is sarcasm for its subject matter.

    MVP episode:Cartman, whose last line - "What do you mean? Now we can finally play the game!" - is the perfect ending to a perfect episode.

  • 2. "Scott Tenorman Must Die" (Season 5, Episode 5)

    The 25 Best South Park Episodes, from Imaginationland to Casa Bonita (24)

    It took South Park a long time to really figure out its characters, and that's especially true for Cartman, who was just an average brat in the show's early years. "Scott Tenorman Must Die" is the episode that introduced viewers to the Cartman who has come to dominate the show: a ruthless, hateful sociopathic schemer.

    Aside from its importance to the series, Scott Tenorman Must Die is also a perfectly timed and planned sitcom episode: it slowly builds before the final reveal hits the pit of your stomach. Cartman's plan for revenge against the titular character, a teenager who bullies and humiliates him, is long dead for most, but it's still shocking in its cruelty, even by the show's standards -- which is the main reason it's so incredibly funny is.

    MVP episode:Thom Yorke and the rest of the band Radiohead express themselves in a performance that amounts to a kick in Scott's already battered ego.

At first, Cartman tries to be nice to Kyle; then he punches Jimmy while pretending to defend Kyle's honor; He soon traps Butters in a bomb shelter and convinces him that a meteorite is about to destroy the world so he can take his place at Kyle's birthday dinner.

    The writing style for Cartman, Butters and Kyle has never been so perspicacious, and the ending is the perfect coda that follows this episode's establishment of Casa Bonita as a mystical promised land. If it weren't so funny, the episode's lack of flourishes might lead to accusations of being boring. Instead, it ends up looking effortless.
