Top 10 South Park Running Gags

The Top Ten
1 Oh my god! They killed Kenny!

Kenny use to always die, every episode. And each time, Stan and Kyle would yell "Oh my God! They killed Kenny! You Bastards!" Some people think the "You bastards" line is breaking the fourth wall and referring to the show's creators.

This is the most iconic and memorable gag in South Park. Every time Kenny died, Kyle and Stan would say this.

Easily the most iconic one!

2 Cartman's "Screw You Guys, I'm Going Home!"

Pretty much the best thing to say when you get very annoyed with someone. One of Eric Cartman's most popular quotes of all time.

I read this in his voice

3 Butters Getting Grounded

This gag sees Leopold "Butters" Stotch get grounded by his dad, often for something insignificant or that was not poor Butter's fault.

4 Chef Singing

When Chef was a regular character on the show, the kids would often turn to him for advice. He would often start singing them a song, especially if the advice was about women.

This actually made the first few seasons of South Park more funny and enjoyable to watch. I really like it when Chef sings.

I miss Chef. He was one of the best characters on the show.

5 Canada and Canadians

The show portrays Canadians in a funny manner, which is easy to notice by the different way in which Canadian characters are drawn.

The way the Canadians are designed in the show is just really hilarious. Also the way they talk is really funny.

6 The Rednecks saying "They took our jobs!"
7 Randy Marsh's Alcoholism

Randy Marsh having substance abuse problems is something that occurs often on the show and gets the character in trouble.

8 Kick the Baby!

This running gag only happened during the first few seasons of South Park, which would see Kyle kick his baby brother Ike and send him flying.

9 I Learned Something Today Speech

At the end of many South Park episodes, one of the boys gives a speech about what life lesson he has learned throughout the episode.

10 Cartman Singing

Cartman often starts singing funny and ridiculous songs at different times during the show. It almost feels like watching a musical.

Some of his songs are really hilarious, like that time in the amusement park where he sang about minorities, freaking hilarious!
