Worst South Park Episodes

Though South Park is a great show, it's has its share of bad episodes, more so in seasons 7, 9, 12 & 15.

The Top TenXW

1Stanley's Cup

How the hell did THIS episode not get number one on this list! A Million Little Fibers is bad and all, but this episode is probably the worst dead episode I've ever seen, and I only saw the ending! Lucky me to see one of the worst moments in cartoon history. And you know what's funny? Not what's supposed to be funny but what's actually funny. The ending could've worked. That's right, I said it. You want to know how? Simple. Have the hockey team (God knows I can't remember their name for the life of me) arrested for beating up the little kids and have their team win by default. That way the cancer patient wouldn't have DIED from a broken heart, the hockey team that won would've met a cathartic punishment at the hand of the law, and Stan's team wouldn't have gotten mercilessly beaten down for nothing. And, why the Hell did the hockey team get cheered on for not only taking advantage of the fact that they were playing against little kids to win the Cup, but also needlessly maim, beat ...more - regularshowman

All of you are getting mad at this. But you like other episodes and you probably like Eric Cartman (who played as Adolf Hitler in a episode, someone who killed Jewish children and Jewish adults) but since this one is directly at children with cancer you get mad. Then don't watch South Park!

Did they seriously have to kill off the kid with cancer at the end. Without the ending, this episode would still be boring and mediocre, but the ending just made the entire thing extremely unpleasant and mean-spirited. Writers, I actually don't want to see a pee-wee hockey team get beaten to a bloody pulp by a professional hockey team. I also don't want to see Stan's dad break down in tears because his dreams were crushed. And, surprisingly enough, I don't want to see an innocent kid die of cancer and his last words being, "No hope." The first time I saw this, I was literally in awe over how cruel and horrible it was. By far my least favorite episode. - SafetyPickle

Was it really necessary to kill off the kid with cancer as a joke after making us feel poorly for him through the entire episode? Not to mention I really hated when those hockey players started beating on Toddlers! They didn't even do it in a funny way! Seriously no humor whatsoever! Anything would have done to make me not feel wrong for watching this hell a pedophile joke would have been preferable to what we were given.

2A Million Little Fibbers

Guys strongly enough I felt sorry for towelie, and hated everyone else, I mean come on a towel just wrote a book that's not credible for anything, I seriously wanted to beat the crap out of the publisher. I know towelie can be annoying but he deserved a whole lot better in this episode

This episode annoys the crap out of me. Even though Towelie is a funny character his very own episode is horrible.

Terribly boring and doesn't even feature the main four boys! Towlie is the worst character ever! I do think Stanley's Cup is worse but not many people have commented about this episode on here.

This and Stanley's Cup are like the One Coarse Meal of South Park

3Mr. Garrison's Fancy New Vagina

This is my least favorite of all time. It's not that I hated it because it's disgusting and graphic, but because it's transphobic as hell. They're basically saying transsexuality is the same thing as getting a surgery to become tall and black or a dolphin. It's completely inaccurate as well, as Mr. Garrison didn't have to live as a woman before having surgery, and was completely uninformed on what the operation would and wouldn't do. I'm transsexual myself (but female to male) and I know they don't just hand out instant sex changes on the daily to anyone with the money for it. Transition takes a lot of time. I know South Park is complete satire and not meant to be taken seriously, but you can usually see what they honestly think about certain issues and do their research. This is a perfect example of criticism and ignorance from their end as well as the characters on the show.

Most disturbing, disgusting piece of animation known to history and when I think of South Park, I don't even want to THINK of this episode, South Park has amazing and groundbreaking episodes, but this certainly isn't more of them. Showing live sex change footage made me have to leave the room, SO disgusting... I generally skip this one.

My least favorite of the whole series, but I thought the scene where Gerald became a dolphin was hysterical... I think every episode of the series, all 267 of them, has some sort of redeeming qualities.

This is the only cartoon that has ever made me get close enough to vomiting that I had to pause and run to the bathroom.

The most boring and skip-able episode. - egnomac

Well, it was good to see that there are episodes that focus on some more minor characters, and while this one did have its share of laughs, it wasn't too interesting.

This the only episode I can say it about it sucks.

Plus, just for common knowledge this is the shows creators least favorite episode too. - EMBIGNASPAC

To be honest, I never liked Pip, and that not that awful episode which gonna change my mind. I'm glad Pip died at 201.

There are some clever concepts in this episode, and it's SO satisfying to see Cartman get what he DESERVES, but most of it is just an excuse to abuse Kyle. You thought Toilet Paper didn't pay good homage to Silence of the Lambs, and that it was bland and unfunny, well, Human CentiPad does this even WORSE. Plus, I'm pretty sure it's pretty embarrassing to make Steve Jobs look like a sadistic madman in the one episode he appears in, and then have him die shortly afterwards. Gross, unfunny, with some of the WORST gross-out humor in South Park history (and that's saying a lot), it has a few decent qualities, but is still overall just stupid.

Disgusting, disturbing, and very hard to watch episode. Why would south park put something that screwed up then take it way to far. Kyle is a little kid and they put in in that situation. That is what makes this episode worse than Stanley's cup or million little fibers. Watching toddlers get beat up by a team of grown men is bad put not as bad is watching Kyle and two other people get put on the thing. I had I harder time watching that than any other episode in south park. There was nothing good about that episode or nothing funny.

Guys! For those of you who don't understand, they are making a parody of a horror film called "The Human Centipede". It wasn't trey and matt's idea to do this! Plus have you people watched "6 days to air"? Trey clearly said that the episode is a PARODY, now get over it.

Please ignore the comment below me I ended commenting on the wrong episode sorry

Oh, Come on! ManBearPig was a good one! There's a number of good episodes that shouldn't be on this list, such as Casa Bonita, All about Mormons, and The Ring.

This is one of the best episodes, I'm super cereal

Al gore is annoying in this, and he even appeared again in imaginationland

This One's Really Funny

7The Return of Chef

How is this episode even in the top 10? This episode was hilarious and genius that they spliced recorded parts of Issac Hayes and re-used them. - djc20

Though I know that they had no choice with Isaac Hayes leaving due to the Scientology episode the episode was funny... Until the end but Trey Parker and Matt Stone's jobs are to mess with us as bad as possible eh hem Stanley's cup well though it find this to be the worst is still has hilarious parts I really just don't like the ending. This just proves that South Park is so good that even the worst episode is still funny

It's bad enough Isaac Hayes died, but Parker and Stone didn't have to out this big middle finger to his gravestone. I get it chef had to depart in some way, because Hayes left the show, but we all loved chef and he were kinda hoping he'd go out a hero

This episode has too much heart to it for me to hate it. So, I don't consider it all that bad and the speech at the end is powerful and sweet.

All of you who didn't like this are probably fat. This is just making fun of fat people in the U.S. schools system, (which is a serious issue that isn't being solved) and to whoever said they felt bad for Eric is completely ignorant. Cartman wanted to kill all the Jews, and WAY MORE crazy stuff than just burning a teddy bear and making fun of fat people. You people are so soft.

It sucks ass. Seriously. Cartman is my favourite character and they had to do this. I really felt bad for him.

What the heck...Why do people feel sorry for Eric? He literally just shot his stuffed animals. I love Cartman, but really, it wasn't that sad or anything.

Why they have to kill off Clyde frog, Peter panda, and the others why'd you do it you bastards

9The China Problem

I LOVED how eric was so terrified of the Chinese and it was HILARIOUS when they "invaded the Chinese headquarters " and tried to get information from some random Chinese family. The part about Indiana RUINED this episode. They had like only five minutes on the Chinese total and all of the rest was about how the boys were traumatized from a movie. By the way I didn't think Stanleys Cup was so bad.

Honestly I loved this one it seemed interesting really funny, and they managed to show how opposed we are with movies and shows. A guilty pleasure to me and a really great episode for butters. Especially his closing line " can't believe they threw him in jail I thought that movie was pretty good

It could be a good episode if there is no that Indiana Jones part.

What, this episode isn't really bad. It was just weird. - GeoffTheThrasher

The Newcomers

?Member Berries

That episode was just pure boring because most of the time it focuses on nothing and it's not as good as the second part


Most annoying episode it's like listening to a screaming child on a plane

This is a personal favorite of mind

The Contenders

11I Should Have Never Gone Ziplining

"Maybe I just have a weird sense of humor, but I found this episode to be extremely funny. Don't know what all the hate is about."

They hated it because of the live action scene. I thought the live action scene was extremely funny too.

This is a guilty pleasure to me. Yes it was purposely annoying, but I really loved to whole survival show concept. Just as long as it gave me a good time even when it's bad is fine with me

Well, it's just show the main boys suffering. Really not funny. Thanks Stan for using your friends for a crappy Ipod.

I liked this one. It's funny and enjoyable, so therefore it doesn't deserve to be on this list. It has no bad traits of an episode that'll piss me off.

12South Park is Gay

Should be number one. Crab people my ass. Not funny. Was this episode made by Justin Bieber? So bad that even Trey and Matt hate it.

What they made my favorite character a right jerk

Not Bad, But It Could Have Been Funnier

I kind of enjoy this episode

13Mystery of the Urinal Deuce

Pretty boring, it didn't have such a good story. It was boring and had a really dumb ending. It started ok but it ended bad.

The stupid idea that someone take a crap in a Urinal has to do with the September 11

I really hated Eric in this one enough said

The ending was just what we already knew

This episode is great it's hilarious and very very bold! Just cause it almost got terrorist attacked doesn't make it bad

"You killed your own father and then you fed him to your half brother! " Like the best quote ever. It's a little boring at times, and they killed Pip! Pip was funny! But overall ok episode.

South Park has better episodes than this

I liked that pip died.

15Best Friends Forever

Because it's the best thing to do - portugal12346

Kenny and Cartman are supposed to be best friends. This episode just poops on that whole concept, which really pisses me off 😡

I actually never thought them as that. I never really thought Cartman had any REAL friends. Cartman has taken advantage or ripped on nearly every kid in the school, including Kenny. Cartman may consider him his best friend, but Kenny doesn't actually want any part of him from what I can tell.

16Mr. Hankeys Christmas Classics

This episode was actually the last episode to feature the voice of Mary Kay Bergman, who died on November 11, 1999, shortly before this episode aired. That is why The Red Badge of Gayness lacks a lot of involvement from female characters, and This episode as well as Starvin Marvin in Space were dedicated to her memory, as was one of the Scooby Doo movies from the late 90s (she voiced Daphne in addition to South park)

There is no reason why this episode is even on this list (all songs were funny)?

No, you are thinking of the old one, from the 90's. THAT was funny. but this, is a dried up lump.

17Tweek x Craig

"Asians decide who's going to be gay" Asian MY ASS! This episode is not funny, gross and forces two boys to be gay although they're not! Now South Park lost everything! Hope they won't stay together! Hope your happy Trey and Matt! By listening those yaoi slut, you just created the worth South Park episode I've even seen!

This show was particularly painful to watch, from start to finish. I had to skip a lot of it because the humor was just too messed up. The premise of the show is good and they could have done a lot with it but the take off was just horrible.

To me this episode is not bad, but it's pretty mediocre for this season. To begin with I knew for many years an episode like this was going to be made, turns out it did. The only thing I found funny were the Japanese singing a song about Tweek and Craig but the thing that I didn't like is that they were forced to be gay. I am not prejudice and I have nothing against LGBT and Japanese people and people of any other aspects of humanity, but eh it's South Park so I'm gonna say it is what it is but this episode could have been funnier like most South Park episodes have been. I would give this episode a 6/10.

I felt so sorry for Craig and Tweek

19Breast Cancer Show Ever

This is one of my favorite episodes.. Cartman deserved his beating!

That episode was much better than every episode on this page.

Cancer is not funny, it's just plain wrong - Officialpen

I love this episode

20Smug Alert!

Just another Stan torture porn, and I really hate that park ranger. Hmm weird is it me or are park rangers meant to be hated in cartoons, I mean we have ranger smith and know this guy, ahh must be a confidence. I close by staying stay away from or anywhere near Yellowstone you'll think me for it

It pretty much turned every character into a dickhead and the episode is just boring and not funny. Stanley's cup is still the worst, but I needed to comment on this one.
