:idea: Right. we all know eric cartman is a right evil littl b*****d, but what would it be like if his new angle, was nice on the outside, same ol' cartman inside? maybe like palpatine in the star wars prequels? i, mean, at the end of that episode, he knew that he could twist his mum around his little finger, might be funny to see him 'nice', at least for a while

What I don't get is how so many people failed to get that he turned evil again at the end.

I think he went back to himself at the end of the show.

It would completely ruin the show. You can't change a character's personality after 9 and a half seasons. There would be riots in the streets.

but you wouldnt have changed his personality, he would still be the same eric cartman, but even more manipulative, for a couple of episodes

Um, no. His personality was changed completely just before the very end.

He wasn't manipulating. He wasn't pretending to do everything willfully. Cesar said it. "When you correct the behaviour, soon, you will see a change in the personality."

Taking Cartman away from being the kid he's always been (albeit a sudden change in intelligence) would throw the show off balance and out of its normalcy. It would have ruined it. There usually has to be a reset button in shows, particularly in ones like South Park, so it HAD to be reset. A nicer Cartman would not have worked for a few more episodes, anyway. It would be odd and it would suck.

:shock:

Sorry I've just always wanted to try that. Yep A New Eric Cartman would have a lot of fans throwing away their plush dolls.

[color=blue:124e6]He went back to himself at the end anyway. And a 'nice' Cartman just wouldn't be right.[/color:124e6]

he turned back to evil Cartman at the end of the episode. Good Cartman would get really boring really fast.

maybe that would be cool to see for like, one or two episodes. after that it would get old.
some people are like slinkies. they're not good for anything, but you can't help but smile when they tumble down the stairs.

If he stayed nice, I would have no reason to put his scotrum in a meat grinder. But, that would change the show entirely--prolly not for better--and piss off most of the LPF"s.
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.

D: This topic cannot die~ It was discussed to death in the episode discussion, and it's still going. *JOINS IN*

I mean, we did see that his mother went right back to her old self at then end of the episode, and Cartman went right back to pushing his limits. Nothing ANY child wouldn't do. Or, at least a child with an understanding of how the world works:

Step one: Set goal.
Step two: ??? [I mean, work toward goal >o>]
Step three: PROFIT!!!

Vicious cycle. He asks, she gives in, he gains dominance.

:[ While I would have liked to have seen more of "submissive" Cartman (at least WITHIN the episode), it's basically stated with the ending that he is back to his old manipulative, morally-bankrupt self.
