Lampooned Celebrities Aren’t Gonna Take It Anymore in South Park’s 200th Episode

     April 9, 2010


One of the things I like most about South Park is that creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone are pretty much indiscriminate in their subversion. They take potshots at everything and everyone. Whether you’re liberal or conservative, religious or agnostic, Al Gore or Oprah Winfrey’s vagina, eventually they’re going to come after you. Because of this approach, they’ve racked up quite the eclectic array of cartoonified celebrity antagonists over the years. And next week, in a very special episode, the chickens are coming home to roost.

Episode 200 of the Comedy Central staple will feature every celeb the show has skewered over the past 13 seasons and change launching a lawsuit against the town, seemingly led (based on the promo) by perpetually face-stuffing health nut Rob Reiner, closet-loving Scientologist Tom Cruise, and bat-shit crazy anti-Semite Mel Gibson. While the show only runs about 21 minutes, hopefully all of our other favorite scathing star caricatures will get some screen time as more than just background inserts. Personally, I’m jonesing for some more “So I pull out my gun!” R. Kelly. Hit the jump for a peek at the episode.
