Obama/McCain Episode

Postby frosteetoes » Thu Nov 06, 2008 7:07 pm

What I want to know is how much coke did Matt, Trey and the gang were doing on Tuesday night to get Wednesday nights episode in? I mean, all the sh*t was there pertaining right up to the minute election coverage, including Obama's dead grandmother (who died Monday). Aren't these cartoons written and produced at least a couple weeks before airing? Or was there a conspiracy that Matt and Trey had secret information pertaining to the election and the events that surrounding it? Maybe they gained the gift of prophesie thru all the years they worship satan? Can someone please explain how they got so much factual information into this episode in such a short period of time to the minute of this episodes airing? :?:

The animators are very fast and very good at what they do, and they'll work all night long if they have to.

Obviously, they knew what was coming, and had a good idea what they wanted, and did a lot of it, as much of it as they could, before the election.

They did the entire That's My Bush show before he was even announced President-Elect at all.

So Election night, they filled in the blanks, and worked their asses off to bring us an amazing episode with day-before quotes and references which blew me away.

OP: South Park episodes are usually written, animated, voiced, etc. within the week between episodes. They may have ideas before then, but the real work is in that week. That is why South Park is more topical than any other show when it chooses to be.

If you don't believe this to be the case, I implore you to check out DVD commentaries for episodes like "Woodland Critter Christmas" as well as the Six Days feature on this site.:)

Aside from the fact that the rolls of Obama and McCain were interchangeable, thus giving the plot flexibility to deal with either outcome, it was blatantly obvious to most observers for the last month that Obama would win. And in the week before the election? Forget about it!

I noticed that for the umpteenth time they have called Chris "Butter's Dad" by Steven same with the bat dad episode when they changed the bat dads name as well
