Birthday scene'll probably be the big six, and maybe Craig, Clyde and Token, the Marshes, . I doubt we'll see anyone else. Stan has no female friends, and Wendy doesn't count because she's pretty much been written out of the show.
South Park is a platform for Matt and Trey's social commentary and satire; there is no canon and these characters only serve as tools for self-expression. Don't get attached.

I don't recall Stan turning ten already, though I wouldn't be surprised. I actually don't recall seeing a birthday party for him at all. Cartman has had parties and Kyle had a party (planned) but when did Stan have one?

I want to see more Mysterion. I really thought he was going to be back before now, they seemed pretty stoked on the whole thing. I'll just hope that they're planning something big.

Big six? I can think of five, who's six?


Anyway, I hope Stan gets focus over Randy this episode, though it looks worryingly like the other way around. Most 'Stan' episodes these days he gets sidelined by Randy. This is a good plot, pray Randy does not take over and leave it rushed and sketchy.

I hope Wendy finds a way into this one, she is not a goner as she spoke in TMI. You never know, Wendy might just bring her friends to the party.

Six is Jimmy. "Coon and Friends" is the only recent episode I can think of where we see the boys in a small assembly of friends that doesn't include him - but he's in "W. T. F.", "Pee", "The China Probrem" not to mention he's one of the only classmates to continuously receive episodes to himself.

nwt000, believe me I'd love more Wendy probably more than anyone on this board besides you, but I don't see it happening. I don't think Trey or Matt really like her character.

NeuroHeart, Stan turned ten in "Whale Whores" back in Season 13, thus why they're at the Denver Seaquarium. Can't remember when/if it was said on-screen but the press release said it was his birthday.

I was thinking this, too. I would hate it if Randy gets more airtime than Stan in the episode or gets an incredibly long gag that takes up too much episode time. That's part of the reason why I get worried when watching new episodes.

Well, not everything written in the preview blurb necessarily end up in the episode at the end. The blurb represent what M&T and the crew are aiming for as of its release, but if they hit writer's block going that direction, they may settle on a significantly different alternative.

Like some of the posters commented, I really hope that this seemingly Stan-centered episode won't morph into Randy-centered episode by airtime a la "Creme Fraiche". That would be a letdown. I personally think South Park's uniqueness lies in its focus on kid characters like Cartman, Stan, Kyle, Butters, and Wendy. If SP get too focused on Randy and other adult characters, then the show would be no different from the Simpsons and the many clone shows it's spawn on Fox.

From the preview clip and blurb, it seems like the A-plot will be Stan trying to act mature to the chagrin of his friends, and the B-plot will be Randy trying to act childish and modern to get on board with Stan's interests. I'm really hoping that they will focus more on the A-plot and incorporate Stan's friendships with Kyle and Wendy in it, and less on the B-plot.

Conceivably, he could have turned nine. They never said how old he was then.

Every time he appears he gets an incredibly long gag – he's a DERP character, it's what they do. It'll probably be him farting into the mike for about 20-30 seconds, three or four times through the episode, as though it's the funniest thing all year.

Yeah, that was a birthday thing! And I'll watch it again, but I think you are correct, Zazaban, it didn't say whether he was turning nine or ten. I would have to suppose nine, since he was eight through most of the series. Then again, it could have been he was turning ten, and now he's turning ten again, which makes sense in the context of him still being in fourth grade.
That's the one problem with a long-running show about kids; they're always the same age and in the same grade and having the same birthdays. They've been fourth graders for, what, ten years now?

But I think them all being ten ( As said in Crack baby Athletic association("You guys are TEN years old!") ) Is a signal of them moving up to the fifth grade, not neccisarily RIGHT NOW, but Im predicting within the next season or two we might get a 5th grade episode. because in 4th grade you go from 9-10, 5th is 10-11. So if Matt & Trey decided to spark some hope in the viewers, its like they are telling us " Yeppp, we are aging them, and Yepppp there will most likely be a 5th grade episode." Cause if they were to spark so much hope by having a quote in one episode, then another based around a 10th birthday, then they are just mean :( . So they kinda dug themselves in a hole if they arent going to do a 5th grade ep, cause everyone will be expecting it now.
