Best South Park Episodes of All Time

This is a subject of debate for fans around the globe, but here are our personal favorites:

11. Fishsticks

Who can resist the chance to throw some shade at Kanye? Not the South Park writers, that's for sure.

In this episode, Jimmy comes up with a joke that Cartman takes credit for. The joke goes viral, but Kanye in his infinite lack of wisdom is the only person who doesn't get it.


Every once in a while you have to turn the tables. This episode does that and then some, with Cartman traumatized while Butters enjoys a new friend.

Cartman dresses up and convinces Butters he's a robot, becoming Butters' new best friend. As you would expect, this leads to a hilarious journey of awkward situations.

9. Marjorine

If you've spent more than ten minutes around a middle school girl, you've probably seen those paper "fortune tellers." The boys of South Park become convinced of its powers and decide to take it for themselves.

Of course, they have to do it in the most complex and devious way possible. They fake Butters' death and have him return as a girl to infiltrate the girls' group and investigate the fortune tellers.

8. You Got F'd in the A

The premise of this episode is a dance-off to end all dance-offs. The main gang faces off against a group of kids. True to South Park form, though, it's Randy and Butters who seem to take the brunt of the damage.

7. Black Friday

Nowadays, it's unheard of for a comedy TV show to not spoof Game of Thrones at some point. In "Black Friday" and the two episodes that follow, South Park definitely delivers.

As the shopping holiday looms, the boys break into two likely camps: Xbox One vs. Playstation 4. An all-out war breaks out over the best of these two consoles to buy on Black Friday.

We can't forget about Randy, though, who becomes a mall security guard to help him score great deals. Whether you're a Game of Thrones fan or not, this one is a can't-miss.

6. The Return of the Fellowship of the Ring to the Two Towers

For all you Lord of the Rings buffs, this one's for you. Except that instead of a ring, everyone's fighting over porn.

Stan's parents think they've given the boys a video of The Fellowship of the Ring to bring to Butters' house. Instead, they've swapped it with porn by accident and all hell breaks loose. Of course, Butters is in full-on Gollum mode by the end in his confusion over the "adult situations" he's seen.

5. Go God Go

South Park clearly knows how to master multi-part episodes, because "Go God Go" is another winner. Cartman puts himself into a cryogenic freezer to skip the three-week wait for the Nintendo Wii. As these things often do, it doesn't go as planned.

Cartman ends up in the year 2546, and the world is at war among different atheist sects. The world is controlled by a group of advanced sea otters while other groups war for power. As is his style, Cartman can't help but get involved.

4. Imaginationland

It's clear that the South Park writers don't limit themselves by the laws of reality. Every once in a while, though, they toss it all out the window and go way off the depend. Imaginationland is the ultimate example.

Stemming from a bet between Cartman and Kyle, the crew ends up in Imaginationland. It's the hidden world where all "imaginary" figures live. Over the course of three hilarious episodes, the boys' quest in Imaginationland turns into an issue of national security.

3. Good Times with Weapons

What kid hasn't wanted something cool at a store only to be thwarted by the dreaded "parental permission"? The kids of South Park find a loophole and pose as orphans to stock up on weapons from the Far East.

As you can guess, it doesn't go well and poor Butters takes the brunt of the consequences. This leads the gang on a classic quest for covert medical attention.

2. Scott Tenorman Must Die

There's no doubt throughout the series that Cartman has a dark side (okay, he's mostly dark side). No episode shows just how far he'll go, though, like "Scott Tenorman Must Die."

Scott Tenorman is a ninth-grader who starts picking on Cartman without mercy. Cartman can't seem to get the upperhand...until he comes up with the scheme to end all schemes. Even Cartman's friends are shocked by how low he's willing to go. Of course, in true South Park fashion, it's all done in the most hilarious of ways.

1. Make Love, Make Warcraft

If you're a fan of online fantasy world games or if you know someone who is, this episode hits the nail on the head. The South Park crew gets caught up in the world of the game as they develop a shared hatred for one player.

The boys make it their mission to destroy him. As they do, they decline little by little into the isolated, unkempt gamers they all hate.
