Top 10 Best South Park Seasons

The Top Ten
1 Season 8

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.

All of the episodes all great arts of TV, well except maybe Quest for ratings but at least is ok.

Best season. every episode is a classic except for up the down steroid and goobacks. Both of which are pretty good

2 Season 14

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.

We really need to acknowledge a lot of season 14. We all know about the 200 two-parter, the Coon and Friends trilogy, and Medicinal Fried Chicken, but Crippled Summer, You Have 0 Friends, Creme Fraiche, Poor and Stupid, and It's a Jersey Thing were all top-notch.

200 and 201 were my favourite episodes of this season. So much tension, so much creativity and so many returns of old characters; Most notably Tom Cruise, Barbara Streisand and... (the best character in the show) Scott Tenorman.

3 Season 5

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

Needs to be higher

4 Season 6

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.

The season's second run is unmatchable as far as South Park. This season was the most consistent and also birthed probably the most hilarious unused character in television history, Tuong Lu Kim.

Watch The Return of the Fellowship... , Child Abduction Is Not Funny, Simpsons Already Did It, The Death Camp of Tolerance, Professor Chaos, A Ladder to Heaven, Red Sleigh Down, and know that the rest of the season is at least good. My ranking goes like this:


OH COME ON! SEASON 6 ON 15? This has WAY more interesting episodes than ANY of the seasons, for example:
Free Hat
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.

5 Season 1

I don't know if it's just me but I found this season barely tolerable, mediocre is the best word to describe it.
I don't hate this season (it's better than season 2), I do like a few episodes like Toms Rhinoplasty and the Christmas one and maybe death but that's like what 3 out of 13 episodes I found enjoyable.
This season for the most part was one dimensional, boring, unfunny and not very enjoyable.
Take your nostalgic glasses off people because crude jokes on their own with barely any satire are not funny, they're offensive for the wrong reasons not to mention annoying and repetitive.
The show wasn't any good until seasons 4 and 5 came around and to this day despite a few ups and downs over the years it's still a critically strong cartoon (Season 21 is looking pretty great so far, there are only 2 episodes by the time I'm writing this) but for the first two seasons and season three to some extent, all we got was boring, unfunny and one dimensional episodes with a few ...more

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!

One of the greatest seasons of T.V. ever aired, Mr. Hankey the Christmas Poo and Cartman Gets an Anal Probe are arguably two of the greatest episodes ever

The early South Park is the best South Park.

6 Season 10

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

Warcraft dude, 2 episodes sucked but the others were pretty original for south park.

7 Season 13

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!

8 Season 11

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.

How is this season not in the top five? cartman sucks was amazing with the twisted ending, and butters in gay camp, and the imaginationland trilogy? wow? I can name too many more from this iconic season THE LIST is an all time fave, le petit tourette was a hit, lice capades, the snuke? all phenomenal! this season needs to be much higher

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.

9 Season 7

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.

I think that this is the best season. I loved
" cancelled" & "Crippled" & "tepeed"
I have all the seasons and I like this one the most.

Only 2 sub par episodes. The rest are hilarious. As others have said... Casa Bonita is the best ep of the season.

10 Season 4

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.

That season was okay. But Chef Goes Nanners is not one of the episodes that makes this season good. It becomes a random mess. Candy for example.

The Contenders
11 Season 19

My analysis:

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.

Final Verdict:

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.

It's a good season but the way they finished it was like a normal episode, with so many unsolved plots it's too much. Also Kyle and Stan are not friends anymore. That's a downer. Let's hope this is not a cliffhanger and season 20 will continue with what happened in season 19.

Love this season, one of the best yet! Only reason it's down so low is because it's so new (no one could really vote yet versus older seasons) and because it offends a lot of the cry baby liberals they're making fun of.

I love this season so much, first we got an episode of mr garrison wanting to be president so he can get rid of Canadians, then an episode where butters gets a Canadian girl friend which was amazing, there was other amazing episodes too like the city part of town. it also introduced p.c principal who is hilarious as hell. and the final episodes were gorgeous

12 Season 9

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!

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.

Season 9 was another great season. Except for Mr. Garrisons Fancy New Vagina, but we don't talk about that.

Sure, it had Mr Garrisons Fancy New Vagina, but it also had some of the best episodes in the series, including The Death of Eric Cartman, Marjorine, and Trapped in the Closet

13 Season 12

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.

14 Season 15

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.

15 Season 2

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.

This great my favourite one is all ha ha!

16 Season 3

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.

My favorite season. Includes Succubus and the Red Badge of Gayness

17 Season 17

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

It had the Hobbit, which had the best celebrity parody of the whole show, and the Black Friday trilogy, which I dare say is better than Imaginationland

18 Season 18

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 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 season has stronger plots than other seasons and the episodes are back to back!

It really has got continuity and that mind-blowing Grounded vindaloop.

19 Season 16

This was the weakest season I've watched.

This was an amazing season!

20 Season 20

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

Better than Season 19, anyway. A lot less PC Principal. Still belittling Kyle (my favorite) more than the old school days, but not quite as much as 19 did.

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.

21 Season 22

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.

22 Season 21
23 Season 23

Tegredy farms is an amazing plot line. All story lines come together in the 6th episode. Other 4 standalone episodes are pretty weak.

24 Season 24

Loved the pandemic special.

25 Season 25
