Top 10 Best South Park SeasonsSouth Park has been making audiences worldwide chuckle, gasp, and downright guffaw since its debut back in 1997. Over the decades, the show's fearless creators, Trey Parker and Matt Stone, have churned out season after season of animated brilliance. From biting social satire to broad, scatological humor, South Park truly has something for everyone, if you're willing to embrace its uniquely irreverent take on reality.
When we're discussing the best South Park seasons, it can be a bit like comparing apples and oranges, or in this case, comparing Cartman's various get-rich-quick schemes. Every season has its own distinct flavor, its own memorable moments, and its own special place in the South Park legacy. With a show as consistently innovative and boundary-pushing as South Park, every fan has their own personal favorites.
Sure, you could analyze each season based on the number of laugh-out-loud moments, the depth of its social commentary, or even the balance between episodic stories and overarching narratives. But at the end of the day, the best season for you might just come down to which one resonates most with your sense of humor and worldview.
Good times with weapons, up the down steroid, passion of the Jew, you got f'd in the a, awesome-o, the jeffersons, douche and turd, and Cartman's incredible gift are all debatable top ten episodes. When you have that many classics, how is this season not number one?
Easily has the most classic episodes. Hilarious episodes, wonderful characters moments, everything about this season is top-notch.
For me, its 8. It is not even close.
By far the funniest season. Scrotie, you have 0 friends, crippled summer, poor and stupid, jersey, and a creme fraiche finale. Don't forget 201 and 202 which are missing everywhere but are the best dramatic episodes in the series. There's a decent trilogy with coon and friends and then Medicinal Fried Chicken is my favorite episode ever. Great Randy, Cartman, and Stan episode plus the best example of South Park's brand of commentary. I get that seasons 5-7 had the classic feel but the show only got funnier when most others die from 8-18 when they tried crazier ideas and spoofed current events without being cringy. 14 is definitely when it peaked to me.
Easily the most hilarious season. I love many things about season 14. The 200-201 two-parter were spectacular specials. The Tale of Scrotie McBoogerBalls, Medicinal Fried Chicken, and You Have 0 Friends are all great episodes, and easily the best in the season. Don't forget The Coon trilogy, which is just a delight. Everything about this season is phenomenal. One of my top seasons.
Has my favorite episode out of all so far, Butters' Very Own Episode. Plus, there's Scott Tenorman Must Die. So... enough said. Cripple Fight and It Hits The Fan are also pretty funny.
Many classics, many laughs, many messages, its what south park built on, it is what lead the rest of the series to what it is today.
One of the best seasons
Have to put season 5, 6, or 7 at the top. If you want to talk about funny, sharp, classic episodes, I don't know how you can not pick one of these three if you've actually seen every single season. But season 6 is without a doubt the most consistent, only tarnished by the "Red Sleigh Down" and "Fun with Veal" episodes which are completely forgettable.
I could list all the episodes but someone's already done that, so I'll just say it has several of my favorites.
OH COME ON! SEASON 6 ON 15? This has WAY more interesting episodes than ANY of the seasons, for example:
The Return of the Fellowship of the Ring to the Two Towers
A Ladder to Heaven
Professor Chaos trilogy
The New Terrance and Phillip Movie Trailer
My Future Self n' Me
How is this not even in the top 5? This has some of the best episodes, oh, and Season 17 deserves a place too.
I really enjoyed Professor Chaos, Bebe's Boobs Destroy Society, and the child abduction episode. And Return of The Fellowship of the Ring to the Two Towers was iconic.
I don't know why people hating on this season just because of chef dying, it sucked he died but he had to go because his voice actor quit the show. This season has great episodes like cartoon wars, go God go, make love not warcraft, smug alert I mean come on, people need to get off their periods on this season
It has the worst episodes like, Hell on earth 2006, A million little fibers, ManBearPig, Stanley's cup, and The return of chef! Whoever put this THIS high on the list, must really like disturbing, cruel, and lame episodes
Are you kidding me not even on the list. Cartoon wars, Make love not Warcraft. It has Towelie. It needs to be higher on the list
Oh My God, where to start with season 11? We got More Crap, Cartman Sucks, The List, and Imaginationland. Easily one of the strongest seasons.
The List (episode) is probably the best episode of the season. Stendy is back after that episode! They'll stay in Love...FOREVER!
This is one of my favourite seasons fr South Park. It had a lot of funny and classic episodes, which are worth watching.
After not watching the show for a decade or more, I bought a copy of this season only to find that it had somehow managed to remain fresh, relevant and hilarious!
Includes my all time favorite episode! Starvin Marvin. I absolutely think that season 5s episode scott tenorman must die is in my top 3 episodes but I have to go with Starvin Marvin for the win!
The early South Park is the best South Park.
My opinion it's the best
This is when the show really found it's footing. Trapper Keeper and Something You Can Do With Your Finger are classics. Also we got 4th grade. That was great. And Timmy 2000 was strong too.
I have this season on DVD just for that ONE EPISODE. Which episode you might ask? Trapper Keeper. I don't know why but this is absolutely my favorite episode of all time.
Good season (with the exception of Chef Goes Nanners). And yes guys, Chef Goes Nanners is the worst episode of that season. Cartman doesn't deserve Wendy at all. Stendy is a better pairing that Candy. Candy is not a good or fitting pairing.
Grey Dawn, Cripple Fight, Cancelled, I'm a Little Bit Country, Red Man's Greed, Li'l Crime Stoppers, Christian Rock Hard, and Raisins are all among my favorite episodes. A true example of South Park at it's best, very underrated.
It's either 6, 7, or 8 for me. I chose 7 because it's probably the season that I could watch the most, their are no bad episodes.
Only 2 sub par episodes. The rest are hilarious. As others have said... Casa Bonita is the best ep of the season.
Season 9 was one of the best. Episodes like : "Mr. Garrison fancy new vagina" (one of the sickest ever made),"The Losing edge","Ginger Kids","The death of Eric Cartman", Trapped in the closet,"Marjorine" were awesome!
Season 9 was another great season. Except for Mr. Garrisons Fancy New Vagina, but we don't talk about that.
I always tought this season to be 2nd best after season 8. Sad to see it this far. Seasons 8,9,10 and 13 are just flawless.
Can we give some damn credit to season 15? 19th? Really? Okay sure, Funnybot and Royal Pudding were weak, but we got T.M.I., Crack Baby Athletic Association, and You're Getting Old, which were great. Not to mention Broadway Bro Down, Bass to Mouth, 1% and The Poor Kid, which were all pretty strong.
You're Getting Old and Assburgers are the two best episodes in the entire series.
I've been extremely critical of recent South Park seasons. This one is the exception. South Park has always talked about real, current issues, but Season 19 took a lot heavier of a focus on it. As always, it talked about issues that were quite taboo, but this time it felt much more genuine, something they hadn't pulled off in a while. This season was also paramount for another reason. A season or two before, South Park began doing a new over-arching plot for each season rather than each episode. Season 19 was, in my opinion, the only season that truly pulled it off, with a new conflict each episode that would fit into the larger story.
South Park should take notes on this season for how to proceed with Season 21, as Season 20 wasn't much to write about. Season 19 may not be the best season ever, but it represents that shows like South Park can evolve and still remain as fantastic as they always were.
This season was pretty weak. It only had one really good episode, Breast Cancer Show Ever, but I will admit that that episode is probably in my top 10.
Don't know why everyone thinks thinks this is the worst season. Season 16 is the worst and Season 11 should be way higher.
Absolutely the best season, although they are all very good save the first couple.
I don't know about you guys, but this season was just pretty hilarious to me with the old eric cartman and the stupid things the characters did that made no sense. It was just a great laugh for me
This is my favorite of the first four seasons! Gnomes, Clubhouses (ROY), Spookyfish, Conjoined Fetus Lady, Chickenpox, Chickenlover... so many classics!
The first 4 seasons are why I started to like Southpark, they talked about general stuff and old Cartman was amazing, then was meh.
Season 3 is quite charming. It's offbeat with episodes like Cat Orgy, Jakovasaurs, Two guys Naked in a Hot Tub, The Red Badge of Gayness, Hooked on Monkey Fonics, Chinpokomon, and Korn's Groovy Pirate Ghost Mystery. I just have a personal liking to this season, but one could argue that seasons 5, 6, 7, 10, 19, 20, and 2 are really good too. For me personally, this is my ranking of the seasons I'm well acquainted with: 3>5>20>2>6>10>7>19>15>1>9>4>11>18>14>12>16>17>13
Cartman is hilarious in this season, should definitely be higher!
I think season 3 is underrated, better than season 2 in my eyes.
This season is also an underrated season. Like we all know about the Black Friday trilogy, but I thought Goth Kids 3, Taming Strange, and The Hobbit were amazing.
Best season yet with almost every episode being funny. I loved the game of thrones console war trilogy
Pretty underrated season. I thought that Gluten Free Ebola and Freemium Isn't Free were really funny and The Cissy is one of the best episodes of the last 5 seasons.
This season has stronger plots than other seasons and the episodes are back to back!
This season had some hilarious episodes and really should be higher on the list. I love grounded vindaloop and the cissy and the drone episodes and the freemium episodes. So funny
This was the weakest season I've watched.
This was an amazing season!
This season is weak and just bad yes there was a few decent episodes but the whole plot of this season is bad mainly the member berry plot I did not get that plot at all. They could of easily put this into a 2 or 3 part episode but they had to stretch it out as much a possible
I don't get the hate behind this season. Yes it started to decline after Oh, Jeez, but it also had Skankhunt, which is an extremely powerful and poignant episode
First half was great, But after the surprise election of Trump, The planned storyline got all muddled.
Time to Get Cereal was the greatest episode they ever did. The only episode I didn't really like was Buddha Box, but that was mostly because I felt as though the PC Babies running amok didn't really add anything, just rehashed an earlier joke. For 11 minutes. But then, at the same time, I really want to like the episode, because it shows peak Cartman with a box over his head for phone time.
An extremely underrated season and has some of the funniest scenes in all of south park. this season has classic episodes like Mexican joker, band in china, let them eat goo and basic cable
Tegredy farms is an amazing plot line. All story lines come together in the 6th episode. Other 4 standalone episodes are pretty weak.
Loved the pandemic special.
