I loved it. All the looney tunes-ness, but with classic south park combined.
I don't know if the writers think Looney Tunes is dumb and did this as a retaliation for last week, but if that was really their goal then they failed. This was just too awesome n funny.

Nice to know Towelie has a son washcloth now. :lol:

Yeah I think the point is that if they are going to be censored, South Park might as well be Looney Toons.

That's nonsense. Trey and Matt have said in interviews how much they admire Looney Tunes, and this is not the first time they have referenced those cartoons in a loving way (Osama Bin Laden has Farty Pants.)
Did you learn nothing from Scrotie McBoogerballs?

P.S. If you think Looney Tunes has never been censored, you should check out some of the banned material on youtube sometime. Comedy gold.

Hooogaaaaann!!! Oh wait, that's not right.

I went and watched this one at Grandma's to get a jump on commenting.
It was a solid giggle, but I'm gonna have to watch it again. I kept the volume down to keep from bothering the tenants, so I didn't quite catch everything.
With the different opening I was completely confused until I saw Toweliyeyyiey. Screw me, I didn't think they'd use him this run. And omg, Lady Towelie looks like a nice piece.
"Camp Tardicaca" :roll:
The shark gag was somewhat predictable, but I loled. (poor kid got kenny'd in the end didn't he?)
Loved the old school homage. I'm still having trouble placing all of the different characters. The ones that are really getting me are the ones that seem so familiar, but you just can't quite place them. (screencaps later)
Shame I didn't see this person in the BG: http://i35.photobucket.com/albums/d171/ ... 978838.gif
The Intervention titles did get a tad annoying, but it was funny.
It's a bad idea trying to write this with the tv on, because now I'm forgetting what all I was going to talk about. I think I'll have to wait until I see it again on the site before I can say more.

If anyone is interested, here are the lyrics of the song played during the start of Looney Tunes Cartoons:

Remember the two thugs in some of those cartoons? Rocky was the guy in the tall hat, and Muggsy was his big lummox henchman.

"Shaddap, Muggsy."

AHHHH! Brilliant Brilliant Brilliant Brilliant Brilliant!!! Once again, they save the best episode for the finale. I loved everything about it. The Loony Toons shout outs (and some Hanna-Barbera?), the Intervention story, Cartman never changing, baby washcloth.... so many random, insane elements yet Trey tied them together brilliantly!

Oh.... and I'm totally going to learn "Tardicaca Hula Gal" and play it on my ukulele. I hope they post the whole song on the site somewhere.

I think South Park may have been making a subtle nod to the fact that a lot of old school Looney Tunes and Hanna-Barbera shows have been censored and banned from TV. This is mostly because such cartoons are deemed 'subconsciously racist' due to the lack of verbal restraints in the 50's and 60's. Usually, what people deem offensive in these shows is nothing to worry about at all, but that won't stop the douche bags in charge from making brand new, neon-colored, kung-fu action fighting anime-influenced Looney Tunes from 2074 'upgrades' to the original characters.

So in a way, I think they kind of mentioned 201; just in a real subtle way.

At the intervention were the kids reading their letters to comedy central?

The kids who spoke were parodies of these WB cartoon characters:

Elmer Fudd
Droopy Dawg
Beaky Buzzard
Rocky and Mugsy (that's Nathan and Mimsy, respectively)
Peter Puma

Any others? Post them here.
