I started to watch when it was brand news first episode on german tv. The channel was RTL back in the days (now this channel is even worse than fox news) but back in the days they started to trasmit this show first on german tv..

long time ago.. dont now.. it was 1998? 1999? something like that i think..

PS: I would really agree, if they will bring back CHEF.. its okay if some other "singer" or just guy with a dark-bright voice would speak him.. but hey.. i just miss
"hello, children.."

cmon.. where is chef.. i mean.. you can reanimate him.. seriously!

First saw Cartman's Mom is a Dirty Slut as a repeat in 1998. We didn't have Comedy Central on my small town's cable back then so I only saw episodes sporadically at the houses of relatives in other towns. (No one I knew had a satellite dish when South Park started up.)

A friend loaned me a copy of BLU recorded from HBO and I loved it even more than the eps I'd seen. (That tape also had the second Austin Powers movie I recall). I remember I 'forgot' to bring it to school to return it to my friend just so I could watch it one more time.

Once I got to college, I could now watch CC and see new episodes. That was the back half of season 5. In '02 I now had my own computer and fast internet and soon discovered that I could download episodes. That's when I transitioned from "viewer" to "fanboy". I started reading SPS during season 7, I think, to get the lowdown on upcoming episodes and finally joined the forum between season 8 and 9.

I believe I started watching South Park a few weeks before the movie was released, so sometime around 1999. I remember being pissed off because I was too young to go see it in theaters, but then I went to my friend's house one night, and out of nowhere he pulls out a bootlegged version, and we watched it twice in a row.

Started watching a couple months before signing up to this forum in 2004. I watched the movie shortly afterwards and, of course, became completely hooked. :)

:roll: Okay, I'll expand on my answer. I knew about it initially in High School, through hall-talk, seeing clips on broadcast tv, and seeing merch in stores. I didn't start watching it until it was put on broadcast tv in 2005, and I fell in love with the show immediately. I started taping the eps shortly thereafter. I came across the site searching for an episode guide so I could label the shows I had already recorded.

Started watching at age 14 during Season 3, but didn't become hardcore fan until Season 6.

Being a child of the 90's I knew who M&T were from the adverts on CC- and other channels-for Orgazmo/BaseKetball (before I knew anything about SP) but being too young to go to those movies I just didn't bother to ask so I held no interest.

Then one day I walked in on one of my big brothers watching what I thought was a strange cartoon. I asked him what it was and he replied, but having just turned 12 I was pretty much over cartoons at that point.

In 2003'ish, maybe 2004, Friends had ended leaving me w nothing to watch on tv anymore. Out of the blue I decided to rent BaseKetball to see how good it was, (I was to be at my dad's that weekend, so I would've been painfully bored) and just fell for M&T's personalities, I then started watching SP full on as well as being the proper age to watch Team America at the cinema, finally.

I finally caught up watching every re-run (irritating my parents, especially my mom who hates anything the slightest bit inappropriate) I possibly could & buying DVD's when I was able. :) I'm glad I started watching bc it defines my life perfectly than anything else I've ever watched.

I'm a fairly recent addition to the South Park fan club. I remember seeing a television commercial for episode 1 of season 14. I don't have cable but found southparkstudios.com and have been hooked ever since.

I actually worked at a movie theater when Bigger, Longer, and Uncut was released on the big screen. I remember hearing one of my coworkers talking about how South Park was better than Beavis and Butthead. Unfortunately it took me 10+ years to figure that out for myself. Thanks to this website I've been able to go back and watch all of the episodes that I missed during their initial run.

I watched episodes occasionally in 2009 and now recently, I have a great obsession for it.

1999 or 2000, a friend turned me onto it. When he told me it was about foul-mouthed cartoon characters I scoffed.

But after watching the Mr. Hanky christmas episode (while baked) Iwas hooked!

In 2005, I believe. It was when Die Hippie Die came out. I was only ten years old, so I wasn't allowed to watch the show, but I managed to watch it on my parents TV while they were out. It was hilarious as hell, and that got me hooked. Nowadays, my mum is less chilled about it. In fact, she thought Insecurity was hilarious.

I was 14 when South Park aired on Comedy Central. I was a Freshman in high school, and the first episode I saw was the Mega Streisand episode in April of '97. After that I was hooked! :)

I used to watch it occasionally after it came out. It was quite popular amongst teens, young adults and children who secretly watched it. Then I saw the movie in a movie theatre. I was 9 years old then, and my older sister helped get my friend and I into the theatre. Our parents never found out. :D I didn't start watching every new episode regularly until about 2008.
