Respect their authoritah! Following around four little
fourth-graders for a third time, co-creators Matt Stone and Trey
Parker had difficulty balancing their time between their critically
acclaimed film “South Park: Bigger, Longer and Uncut”
and their Comedy Central hit. Season two saw an increase in
popularity for Cartman, Kyle, Stan and Kenny, but it was also the

suffers due to the extended work habits of Stone and Parker. Yet,
with several classic episodes proving a possible future beyond the
genius of season one, it’s the show’s most important
After protest from fans, Stone and Parker are finally aboard for
show commentaries. Each runs about five minutes in length and are
the only special features included. Still, when you have the
crucifixion of a very hungry Cartman in the “Spontaneous
Combustion” episode and the penis-envy satire of Japanese
toymakers/Pearl Harbor bombers in “Chinpokomon,” what
else do you need? Besides Cheesy Poofs, of course.
