Imo, definately the best ep of season 10 so far. Iam a cartman fan and found the episode not only hilarious, but an interesting insight into his character. Alot of good points have been raised by others regarding this in the 15 pages of thread i just read and theres nothing much i can add.


My favourite parts of the ep (in no particular order) were-

-'omg bitesize snickers'

-the tsst thing, how many ppl are gonna start doing that to ppl that annoy them?!

-cartman breaking the first nanny, he reminds me so much of hannibal lecter at times!

-'jesus, whats happening to me?'

-When cartman spits in the first nanny's mouth. Im 99% sure this happened on a supernanny episode here in the uk. Im pretty sure that on that episode the mother said 'its best not to get on his level' like liane did too. Can anyone confirm this??


Cant wait for the 2nd half of season 10!

I just saw it as my weekly dose of South Park and didn't take it for more, but I will say compared to the others I found it rather weak in the humor department.

The nanny joke wasn't funny. It wasn't. I laughed very little this episode and it did not resemble the older South Parks in my opinion.

However, if you have ever read a South Park script, none of them are funny. They're tragic. The funny, as they say on the Team America DVD, comes in the making not the script writing and I'd have to agree. To quote "We can just write an unfunny script and then make it funny later."

However, this episode kept the tragic sense of the script which is unusual for South Park. I liked it in the sense that it was unusual, Cartman's mom wasn't even a slut this time, a lot of the expectations I have of the show were reversed and that's always refreshing but if the show continued this way for multiple episodes I would eventually lose interest.

South Parks' appeal is that the writers don't take themselves seriously, this episode took itself too seriously and it's nice once in a while, but I'd hate to see South Park turn into this.

And I've seen almost all South Park episodes so please don't give me the stupid "You're not a big fan!" speech. I won't be insulted because “fans” are just obsessive losers, but I have been watching the show for a while and this was not “Classic South Park.” as I know it.


totally agree, its just nuts. i've loved all the eps so far this season until this one. it was a good look inside the character of Cartman and was a decent ep (i didnt hate it or anything), but it wasnt too funny IMO. oh well, to each their own.

you really are quite good looking Rebacca :lol:

What do you mean by '[you]only[/you] a cartoon character'? Isn't he a literary creation every bit as worthy of discussion and analyzation as any so-called 'serious' or 'classic' characters of literature?

Hell, people have been crawing into the heads of literary characters to debate their actions and motivations since the first story was written. LOL!

And it really is a good mental exercise. :D


Good point.

Yeah, this episode wasn't that great. Cartman episodes rarely are (ex. Death of Eric Cartman, Scott Tenorman Must Die, etc.).

I really just hate episodes based solely on one character. It takes all the fun out of watching South Park. There are some exceptions like A Million Little Fibers but for the most part, the jokes run out fast because you're just feeding off of that one person's personality.

And Cartman really isn't that funny. He was back when he was just a dumb little fat kid like the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd season but ever since they made him smart and clever, the character has really gone downhill.

I liked this one, probably my favorite of the season. Yeah, it was Cartman focused, but it was Cartman gettin abused, so I liked it. Like I've said before, he had a break there, so it was fine to bring him back again.

D: I've never found stupidity amusing, especially in main characters. It makes it too hard to relate to them, and I prefer getting frustrated alongside the main characters, instead of with them.

I couldn't stop laughing at Cartman being treated like an unruly dog. In fact, I think I woke up the neighbors, laughing so loud. Pretty good episode. Best of the season so far.

In general, I agree with you, the episodes are almost always better when all the boys interact, and one character doesn't hold an entire episode nearly as well. And, I still think Cartman is funny, but liked him alot better in the earlier episodes.

I find it intersting that the only way to get Big Mean Softy under control is to treat him like a dog. That should give us the clue as to who his mehhm is -- Liane poked some diseased and dying mutt in the ass in a back alley during a crack binge.
His attack, his goading and his quick departure from the discussion...clearly demonstrates that [Mr.Hat_DX27], like Stovepipe_Jam, Killahertz9, TheTowlieConnection and others before him, has no integrity.

the pip episode was hella cool, the only episodes i really didnt like was goobacks and fattbutt and pancake head. those two get on my nerves. i f*ckin loved the episode 'a million little fibers' and personally think that was the best episode in a long ass time. i also loved good times with weapons, towelie, mecha schisand, simpsons did it, roger ebert should lay off the fatty foods, not without my anus, chinpokomon, others that i cant think of right now and of course TSST .
i sure wish i knew how to post a picture thing here (sigh)
