Revisiting South Park’s First Season: ‘Cartman’s Mom Is a Dirty Slut’

Thu, September, 14 by

This is the FINAL part in a 13-part series of hand-typed Internet posts concerning the first season of South Park, the show not the town.

You know, I’ve learned something today: if you want to review every episode of a TV show’s first season, have fun with it. Nobody cares about facts and figures; they just want to watch the episodes for the first or millionth time and maybe get a few bonus laughs from me, the writer. Nobody reads anymore anyway because audio and video is so crisp and clear that it’s rendered the voice inside your head useless…. you know what? I’m going to save the rest of this thought for my series of comics about a steampunk who wants glasses but doesn’t need them.

Here are previous posts on Episode 1Episode 2Episode 3Episode 4Episode 5Episode 6Episode 7Episode 8Episode 9Episode 10Episode 11, Episode 12

“Cartman’s Mom Is a Dirty Slut’” premiered on February 25, 1998, the same day Pamela Anderson Lee had husband Tommy Lee arrested on battery charges. Soon after Tommy would enjoy a career resurgence with his band Methods of Mayhem who set the music world on fire with its mix of rap and hard rock, anchored by charismatic lead singer, TiLo.

Plot Description

Cartman wants to find out who his dad is but his mom has had sex with everyone in town so it’s tough. Stan and Kyle secretly film Eric having a tea party with his stuffed animals and enter the video in a televised contest to win $10,000.

Pop Culture References

Who cares? This IS pop culture baby!

Best Quote

(To Chief Running Water) “I’m your son, Eric. My mom says you put your who-who-dilly in her cha-cha, at the Drunken Barn Dance.” – Eric Cartman

South Park-isms Introduced

This episode and this season, like, introduced… itself?

Facts We Stole From Wikipedia

  • “The episode is the highest viewed episode in the entire South Park series, with 6.4 million views.” Yeah well I was really good at Cool Boarders 2 on PlayStation.
  • “Comedian and talk-show host Jay Leno provided the sounds of Cartman’s cat Mr. Kitty in the episode.” That got me thinking – do other animals have chins?

Final Thoughts

I hope you had more fun reading these than I did writing them because writing is hard even though masters like Trey Parker and Matt Stone make it look easy.

Watch the South Park Season 21 premiere NOW.
