This Comedy Central series centers on the bizarre misadventures of 4 irreverent and foul-mouthed grade-schoolers in and around the quiet, dysfunctional town of South Park, Colorado. The boys are Stan Marsh (a pessimistic “average, American 4th grader”), Kyle Broflovski (a young Jewish boy with a strong moral center), Eric Cartman (loud, obnoxious, amoral, foul-mouthed bully—often anti-Semitic), and Kenny McCormick (boy from an impoverished family). The show uses a very large ensemble cast of over 240 characters. Aimed at a mature audience, but often watched by teenagers, it became infamous for its profanity and dark, surreal humor that satirizes a wide range of topics.
