LULZ, I also fell asleep watching that episode the first time I saw it. Granted, I was already exhausted beforehand. :P I had a pretty negative opinion on "Pip" (the episode, not the character) until watching it the second time and realizing it wasn't all that bad.

And I still think he was just begging to be used in "The Snuke." Or maybe after that episode he returned to England.

maybe you didnt think it was that bad the second time cause you were prepared for some major lameness :lol:

its not that bad an episode in itself but its really bad compared to a regular sp episode, i think

i hadnt thought about the snuke thing, i guess it would have made sense, i just dont know where he could've appeared, the episode is already very advanced when we discover that england was behind the attack and i dont know if he would have fitted

I don't really hate Pip (the character)
but he is at the bottom of my list now.... He just has almost no role anymore, and seems naive to everything, even when compared to Butters... Clyde, Craig, Token, etc... have had more airtime than Pip lately.

I might like him a little more if he appeared and had something of a role more often. Unforutnately I think the damage is done, but if they can attempt to revive him i may give him another chance.

I'm just watching the Pip episode and it's so f*cking boring! Poor Pip. He can be so cute with his 'whippy tippy tutu... tralalala'.

I must say though, although I rarely meet anyone with such a stupidly posh voice as Pip's, I do like Matt's attempt at an English accent. I don't know how the Simpsons voice people manage to constantly f*ck it up, but they do.

OK, apparently whenever Americans try to imitate a British accent, they all wind up sounding Australian. I'm American myself and I can (sort of) pull off an Aussie accent pretty well since I moved here. (:

I think what a lot of the Simpsons voice actors do is a cockney accent-- none of those posh accents that speak the Queen's English.

But still, it's pretty sweet that Matt Stone can actually manage to pull off a full-swing British accent.

I wish they would bring Pip back...I liked him because he was more of an outcast than butters, but then again...he is British!

Speaking about British accents, why not have Matt Stone try to impersonate Simon Cowell :o

^Even better, see if they can actually get Simon on the show :P.

They got Malcolm Mcdowell for 'Pip'.

As for Pip's character he was really boring, but then again i think that was the intention as most English people really are boring.

As much as I love to watch Pip being tortured, I feel that the show has outgrown the character. The episode "Pip" was about as much story as they could give him, and could almost be considered his sendoff. Contrary to popular opinion, I actually found the Pip episode to be absolutely hilarious, the funniest line belonging to Malcolm McDowell: (quote) "And so Pip spent the next several months learning how to be a gentleman. He was schooled in several lanhuages. He was taught fencing and marksmanship, and he was shown how to dance and how to eat box..."

In spite of the fact (and perhaps because of it) that they are making fun of Dickens' Great Expectations, the greater (no pun intended) your familiarity with the story, the funnier the episode is. Since I'm an English Lit major, this appeals to me, but since the book is compulsory High School reading, anyone with a high school diploma (and a taste for the tasteless) should be able to appreciate it.

Still, as has been stated earlier on this thread, Pip's function on the show as torture gimp has been outshined by Butters. Pip is too one dimensional to receive continuous unmerited punishment. His lack of parents limits his inner guilt, and his status as a foreigner almost merits constant humiliation by other 4th graders. In the end he is just a satire; a character borrowed from another story for the sake of making fun of it.

You know, Great Expectations wasn't compulsory reading for my high-school education.

"And so Pip spent the next several months learning how to be a gentleman. He was schooled in several lanhuages. He was taught fencing and marksmanship, and he was shown how to dance and how to eat box..."


I laughed my arse off when I first heard it. Probably because Malcolm had said it, and because of how nonchalantly he had said it as well.

I'm an old fogey... Back in the 90's they made us read lots of Dickens. I even remember having to do a group presentation on Tale of Two Cities. Don't get it wrong, I love to read, my major in college was EngLit, but Dickens is sometimes insufferably boring.

I mean, I understood his general outlook--if those in power behaved nicely, then everything would be nice--but his premises were sometimes... How do I put this accurately? LAME. Especially in Great Expectations. So, for me, this episode was a real treat.

Read the book, or watch the gay ass movie with Robert DeNiro, Gwenyth Paltrow and Ethan Hawke (himself a novelist), and you'll see what I mean.
