Top 10 Ways South Park is Better Than Family Guy

The Top Ten
1 South Park 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

I know right people on my bus say family gauy is but it is good but south park just nails the humor

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

2 Family Guy Tries Too Hard to Be Funny

Family Guy just does dumb gags that don't even have anything to do with the plot of the story. South Park on the other hand is clever, everything makes sense and it doesn't use cheap jokes.

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.

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

I don't watch South Park much but I love family guy

3 South Park Has Better Characters

Stan is a great role model, Kenny is adorable, Kyle is selfish and mean but still likable, Bebe is a Queen, Wendy is a cinnamon roll, Red is a badass, Pip is sweet, and Cartman is bratty and crazy but still likable.
Family guy is funny but Meg, Stevie and Brian are the only characters that I enjoy.

The characters in south park are great. cartman is a delight to watch, kyle has gone through some major development, kenny is an adorable sweetheart and the rest of the characters are great too. they aren't perfect, but in my opinion certainly better then family guy. family guy isn't the worst in character development but it's far from the best. th only enjoyable thing is stewie and brians chemistry, probably why they have so many episodes with just the two of them. also, episodes with stewie and brian tend to pull in better ratings, therefore the producers of family guy have made some good executive decisions.

Despite how South Park is a pretty inappropriate show just like Family Guy, the characters from South Park have more depth in personality. Unlike how the characters personalities from Family Guy are more negative and have limited redeeming qualities to them.

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.

4 Family Guy is Mostly Shock Value, While South Park is More Satire

Family guy is rather satirical

5 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.

Yea they do go randomly but I like it sometimes

6 South Park is Funnier

Unlike that Peter Griffin guy, Randy Marsh is the personification of irony, satire and silliness.

That's what this whole list is about, dumbass.

South Park is funnier, but I still don’t Family Guy quite funny.

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.

Family Guy used to have class to their humour. The new writers have killed the inappropriate yet classic vibe the show had

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

Peter griffin being a terrible father is just done so wrong, kinda gross actually.

8 South Park Doesn't Have Stupid Cutaway Gags

They get really annoying

I agree, they're annoying!

Yup. I’m tired of all the stupid cutaways that have nothing to do with the story.

Yup I hate those cut aways

9 South Park Has Better Animation

The entire animation fits the theme of the show, it looks like a really good elementary school project, and the smaller things in South Park (like objects) are very well animated, and combined together, it turns into great animation.

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

The great animation makes all the characters' faces look cute (well mostly the younger kids).

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

10 South Park's Catchphrases are Funnier

Does Family Guy even have a catchphrase (I like both shows but I like South Park more)

Oh my God! Killed Kenny! You Bastards! is funnier than giggity giggity goo.

Oh my god! They killed Kenny! You bastards!

Screw you guys, I'm going home!

The Contenders
11 South Park Has a Great Plot with a Mix of Humor About Today's Society
12 Peter Griffin is Way Too Dumb

While yes that does add to his humor, very few characters in South Park are outright dumb. While many characters do a lot of stupid things, they have aspects tied to them that are smart, like Cartman, he's awful in school and can get fooled easily, but he's great at manipulating and has plenty of evil schemes which adds a smartness to him, and characters reactions to legitimately dumb characters, like Towelie, are funny. While Peter's stupidity is funny, it's nailed in so much, that it's defined as his only trait. While that won't be too bad if he was a side character, but he's a main character, so seeing his stupidity over and over again, becomes annoying over time.

Peter is actually funny. Without him, it would suck, but yeah I agree that he's dumb.

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

Tats the joke dumbass, what are u guys 9?

13 South Park Has Story

South Park is way better

14 Stan and Kyle is the Best Friendship on Any Adult Cartoon

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

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

Stan and Kyle has a true friendship.

Definitely One Of The Best

15 Family Guy is Random, South Park Isn't

And not random in a funny way.

16 South Park is Original, Family Guy Isn't

What's more original a show about cussing fourth graders or a show about a dysfunctional family? Obviously the show about cussing fourth graders is far more original. Honestly Family Guy wasn't original from the start while South Park was.

South Park is unique because it's 4th grade boys swearing. Family Guy is ripping off the Simpsons.

17 Family Guy Tries to Be Politically Correct Way Too Much

Politically correct does not mean, fear of let's say making fun of someone who is down syndrome or so.. It means being correct with the political climate. It is an old Communist term, if someone was politically correct, they were in line with what the government thought, if they weren't politically correct, then they were not in line with government, and needed to be corrected. Family Guy is politically correct, because they tend to MOSTLY trash Republicans, or anything seen as "Conservative"- Whereas on South Park, they will hilariously, roast EVERYBODY- and unlike with Family Guy's political humor/roasting, the South Park stuff is funnier, because it's so true.

The creator of Family Guy is quite the leftist, so he will make fun of the right A LOT.. The creators of South Park, are Libertarians, and cannot stand the right or the left- which is why their political stuff is way funnier, because they aren't politically correct.

No they don't. But South Park is clever.

This is not a valid argument.

No... Not really... At all...

18 South Park Has More Episodes and Seasons

South Park has never been cancelled it is more popular.
They have even made songs that got in the charts in the 90s Chocolate Salty Balls and at Christmas Mr Hanky.
Video games since the 90s.

19 South Park Does Satire the Right Way

Including the simpsons and Bob's Burgers as well.

20 South Park Has a Movie

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

Family guy should have a movie

Damn right they do.

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)

21 South Park Was Made First

I don't think that's a reason South Park's better... but I still like it more than Family Guy

This is fact, but it proves literally nothing.

I prefer “South Park” by a mile, but this doesn’t make it better.

22 South Park Has Better Songs

Yes the FCC song, Shipoopi, and a Bag of Weed are great, they just can't compare to songs like, Blame Canada, Kyle's Mom's a B*tch, and Let's Fighting Love.

23 South Park Has No Annoying Bleeping Sound

Both South Park and Family Guy have that, but you can't blame the crew, you should blame Fox, Comedy Central, and the FCC for them.

You mean for swears? South Park has that too.

South Park has it too. Just watch 201.

Yea because it makes it better with no BLEEEP sounds!

24 Family Guy is Offensive

South Park is also offensive, so I don't get why this is on the list.

South Park is controversial
Family Guy is offensive

Both are weird

25 South Park is on More

Actually Family Guy is on Fox, TBS, Adult Swim, and a lot of CW stations while South Park is only on Comedy Central and MTV. But I love South Park more.
