The First Release of South Park

What Happened in 1 – 23 seasons?
Before we talk about season 24, here’s a little summary of the previous seasons, to sharpen your memory about our favorite South Park.
This animated sitcom featured four little boys who are overly sarcastic in every way. Stan Marsh, who lived with his half-witted family, portrays the polite, mellow kid of the group. His best friend Kyle Broflovski was a loner Jew with a strong moral character who belonged to a strict, traditional family.
The antagonist, the frenemy of Stan and Kyle, Eric Cartman was a fat, rude and despicable bully. Kenneth McCormick was from a poor family and always wore a parka hood.
When you are with these four kids, something hilarious or bizarre is bound to happen. For example, a chip was planted in Cartman’s anus by the aliens once. Even in the neighborhood, you would see the moves of Michael Jackson.
But when Cartman killed Scott’s parents, cooked them in chili, and made Scott eat to take revenge on him, things got spooky. And when Kenny died for real, the show got intimidating as well.
