Reasons Why South Park Is Better Than Family Guy


The Top Ten

1 It Gets Dark Humor Right

Family Guy is a great ANIMATED show in terms of the strides it makes in it's production, designs, musical numbers etc it's an all rounder. South Park is better T.V. show because it is in my view the only show in television that goes there. There is no limit. If they want to do a joke on terrorism, incest, celebrity heck even suicide they'll do it. There is no filter and why we may not always like it the fact that a show has the guts to unabashedly call out modern culture, politics etc and make fun of it some cases more light heartedly and appreciatively than others, or sometimes actively criticise but above all it gets people talking. Whether in shock, disgust, or sometimes even serious conversation about what the heck is wrong with the world we are in today, it still inspires something in people. Family Guy is entertainment.

Family Guy is awesome one of the greatest shows but South Park just has way better humor - OneWayStreet

Family guys is great but South Park is my all time favorite show, - Nateawesomeness

3 Family Guy Tries To Hard To Be Funny

Watch Magic the joke is- Roosters playing cards but Randy Marsh's "cock magic" in the middle

The Simpsons tried to be funny, and it was.
South Park tried to be funny, and it was.
Family Guy just tried to be the most inappropriate show out there and still is South Park more inappropriate.

4 Family Guy's Jokes Are Not TImed As Well As South Park's

Family Guy jokes go on for a PAINFULLY long time. Men grunting with newspapers for 3 minutes? Really? South Park is better

You do have a point with this. I like Family Guy, but you do have a point. - RalphBob

Yea they do go randomly but I like it sometimes - OneWayStreet

5 South Park Has Better Characters

Cartman, Butters, Kenny, and pretty much everyone else on the show is original and unique in their own way. - Turkeyasylum

Cartman, Timmy, Kyle, Stan and Butters are just a handful of the best characters. Jimmy is funny too. It knows how to handle the humor.

It also has many memorable characters.

Everything is better

7 South Park is Clever, Family Guy is Not.

South Park has things that anybody who isn't completely uptight can laugh at, because even though the show makes fun of everything, the jokes relate to real life and tend to have messages. Family guy also has things that can be considered comical, but there is no actual structure or basis to the jokes in the show, just random stuff to get a laugh or two.

True. South Park makes dedication to other shows and has good morals and messages. Family Guy doesn't.

Prove it

8 Stan and Kyle is the Best Friendship on ANY Adult Cartoon

This wrong Milhouse and bart and brian and Stewie are more famous

They are a good friendship but I think the Brian and Stewie is really famous - OneWayStreet

Stan and Kyle has a true friendship.

Definitely One Of The Best - JPK

True brian and steiwe are sometimes best friends but stan and kyle are true friends

9 Better animation

I do agree. It looks like cutouts but, at least it's not Family Guy's ugly faces.

I think the characters in South Park look cute, even though it's not supposed to be. Family Guy animation is ugly and weird. - Popsicles

South Parks animation looks like it's budget's been cut - Wehraboo29

Nope. - RalphBob

10 Peter Griffin is Way too Dumb

I agree, if peter wasn't stupid family guy would be terrible ( wich it isn't )

This is not a valid argument. - RalphBob

18 South Park Has a Movie

Actually, Family Guy did get a movie, but it was released direct-to-video and was centred on Stewie (however, Stewie if my favourite Family Guy character)

Damn right they do. - BeatlesFan1964

Family guy should have a movie - OneWayStreet

No way Jose! Family Guy is very boring and it would be an hour and a half of people wasting their time. - roflcash4

Although the South Park movie was amazing, family guy dosnt need a film to be good
