12 Darkest South Park Moments Ever
Trey Parker and Matt Stone have proven themselves as television’s sharpest satirist over twenty-three seasons. They expose the stupidity in intellectual pursuits and make the seemingly stupid complex and worthy of discussion. They have also created iconic characters and, in the sleepy little mountain town of South Park, a place where anything can, and does, happen.
Also key to the success of South Park is the quick turnaround in making the show, which keeps their social commentary fresh. Parodies and their inspiration are often separated by mere days, leaving their animated rivals lagging six months behind. In the case of the dark and disturbing, emotions and wounds are still raw.
And it's fair to say that the creators excel in drawing laughs from the darkest aspects of life. South Park is both lauded and condemned for this. To the creators' credit, neither has affected them.
So, come on down to South Park where familial cannibalism, Satanic sacrifice, and a former superhero existing on a diet of foetuses are just another misadventure in Stan, Kyle, Kenny, and Cartman’s formative years.
