Kanye West on 'South Park'

Kanye West appears on South Park as a gay fish in which he defends "hobbit" Kim Kardashian.

The animated series' season 17 finale shows character Butters telling a classmate that he wants to date a woman like Kim since "she knows how to look good." However, his classmate Wendy says the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star is "a hobbit" since her beauty is derived from Photoshop. Kim's fiance Kanye - who is animated like the other characters - comes to her rescue and defends her reputation in a scene where he gives a lecture to a classroom of students.

Monty Python Eye ‘South Park’ Collaboration

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Animation, Comedy, Cable, Gossip, News,

The Monty Python comedy troupeThe Monty Python gang want to work with South Park.

Terry Jones is reuniting with his old comedy collaborators John Cleese, Terry Gilliam, Michael Palin and Eric Idle for the Monty Python Live (Mostly) show, and he claims the controversial American animation is the modern-day equivalent of their iconic British sketch show, Monty Python's Flying Circus.

"It's so successful and brilliant. It makes me laugh. We'd like to do something with them but I don't know yet because it's early days for the Python reunion. Besides, I'm just getting used to being in my 70s," the 71-year-old star told The Sun newspaper.

Terry credits South Park creators Matt Stone and Trey Parker - who have admitted the show's style of animation is inspired by the paper cut-out cartoons made by Terry Gilliam for Monty Python's Flying Circus and have cited the group's work as a major inspiration - for making the Pythons' reunion happen in the first place: "They sparked it off when they said they'd like to do a show with us - they were big followers of Monty Python. That sowed the seed of the Python reunion," he explained.

Comic Book Jobs: South Park

Posted by Tom Mason Categories: Editorials, Television,

South ParkYes, I'm cheating again, but only slightly as you'll see. South Park, Trey Parker and Matt Stone's genius TV show, needs a little bit of help. Perhaps yours?

They need an Animator, a Technical Artist, and my favorite (and why they are listed here), Storyboard Design Artist.

The storyboard gig is entry-level, but includes Background Design and (the cool part) Character Design.

You'll need experience with the various computer design programs like Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop.

They'd like you to know that this is "not a compositing job" but you can expect an "intense, creative, and rewarding production schedule beginning in April."

You will have to be living in Los Angeles for the duration, but how bad is that, really?

Good luck, job seekers!

South Park Sued for Copying YouTube Video

Posted by K.C. Morgan Categories: Animation, Comedy, Prime Time, Cable, Video,

Many South Park fans remember the 2008 “Canada on Strike” episode, which celebrated/parodied some of the Internet’s biggest YouTube sensations. The “Chocolate Rain” guy, dramatic gopher and "Star Wars kid" were all portrayed in the episode … but none of them are the one who’s suing the show.

South Park, cable network Comedy Central and parent company Viacom are being collectively sued for copyright infringement of the YouTube hit “What What (in the Butt).” The video, which has scored over 33 million views, was re-made on Park, with Butters playing the role of YouTube singer Samwell. The video above shows a comparison of the two videos, highlighting the similarities.

South Park’s Mystery Deepens with Second Coon Episode

Posted by K.C. Morgan Categories: Animation, Comedy, Prime Time, Cable, Gossip, Video,


Since the introduction of Mysterion to South Park in Season 13, the fan community has speculated on the “real” identity of the character.

Mysterion appeared in “The Coon,” a Dark Knight parody starring Eric Cartman as the superhero title character. Cartman’s dreams of glory were foiled when another superhero turned up suddenly ... with a cooler costume and a much more secret identity.

And the superhero’s haunting tagline, “Who is Mysterion?” has sparked debate among fans ever since. Wednesday night revealed the second chapter in the ongoing South Park superhero society (aptly named Coon and Friends) … yet, we still don’t have an answer to the burning question.

South Park Creators Apologize for Copying Original Content


Although South Park's creators are known for producing controversial content, they don't usually say sorry for it.

Late last week, Trey Parker and Matt Stone apologized to the writers of a CollegeHumor.com video after they accidentally copied original content. Although the episode ("Insheeption") incorporated several lines from a clip called "Inception Characters Don't Understand Inception," Stone and Parker said they didn't know what they had done.

In an attempt to do an Inception-based episode, Matt and Trey tried to watch the movie for themselves -- unfortunately, they struck out finding a theater showing or a copy of the film. That is when they came across the College Humor clip (which can be seen after the jump).

South Park typically pulled no punches Wednesday night when mocking reality TV shows Jersey Shore and the Real Housewives of New Jersey. Now, some of the targets of the jokes have responded to seeing themselves immortalized in animation.

Former Housewives cast member Danielle Staub managed to take it all in stride. “I was pleasantly surprised it wasn’t just me being made fun of for a change,” she laughed. Staub said she was “honored to be mocked” by South Park, adding “Poor Snooki though! I got off easy compared to her!”
