Top Ten South Park Episodes

The Top Ten

1 Scott Tenorman Must Die

When I first saw this, I was on XBOX live laughing so hard people were tellin' me to shut up, I have this episode on my IPOD, Netflix, etc. Every single time I watch this episode It was just as funny as the first time

This is hands down my favorite episode. In the beginning of the episode, I actually felt bad for Cartman being made fun of, but when he made Scott Tenorman eat his own parents and reveals it to him by licking his tears, I could have died laughing. It shows what evil and twisted things Cartman is capable of.

no contest here, it was actually agonizing to see cartman being made fun of and eating the chili... and the end was explosive!

I MaDe YoU eAt YoUr PaReNtS
hands down the best episode.

2 Make Love, Not Warcraft

"How do you kill, that which has no life. "
Most epic thing ever said on television.
Makes you think

The fact that Kyle had a female avatar still kills me. And isn't it just hilarious to think that the South Park kids and the WoW corporation were on this huge intense quest to defeat some player who couldn't care and had no idea this was happening?

The fat typical WoW guy is hilarious, and luke getting carpal tunnel is joke and sums up nerdy fat kids who don't go out if their house, cartman ever fatter with spots my god pahaha

I do like series 2 episodes the most but this just beats all of them, I find most later south park quite stupid silly yet too serious with all the sick ideas but this One completely takes the piss haha

Yeauh. best episode. I couldn't believe ike had a world of warcraft account. I couldn't breathe when I saw kyle's avatar.

3 The Return of the Fellowship of the Ring to the Two Towers

It's funny because the boys are completely unaware that's they are delivering a dirty movie and the parents think they saw it. The ending made me laugh.

The plot was good but the episode felt rushed.

Funny as heck

I hate lord of rings,but I love this episode!

4 Imaginationland

it has eddie the head (mascot of iron maiden)in it so how can you not like it - wolphert

It was sad how Kyle died. But I love this episode. If you want your childhood ruined, watch this episode. - LpsDisneyTmntFreak

A personal favorite of mine. I was intrigued the whole time whilst laughing. Great episode. - wubbalubbadubdub

5 Cartman Gets an Anal Probe

What? This is the worst South Park episode I've ever seen. Their pilot tried way too hard and was too fast and confusing (well not confusing but they didn't take a moment to expand on a good joke) and really, it isn't the South Park we know and love today. I'm glad they progressed from this episode. - Songsta41

Kyle-cute but badass and cussing machine! - meows

You may have liked this episode, but you're not going to believe this: the critical response was negative.

I think it's the first ever episode of South Park and the part where he [Cartman] abducted by aliens was just good. The animation itself was bad in the early seasons due to lower budget but as the years pass it changed into computer animated. But this episode is'nt that great but I found it.

6 Breast Cancer Show Ever

This is among the best episodes of anything that tackles the issue of bullying. Rather than try to make the bully sympathetic, like many other shows have done, this episode makes Eric Cartman as unsympathetic as possible, and I greatly enjoyed seeing him get pummeled into a bloody pulp. The principle's talk with Wendy was an even better moment, possibly my favorite South Park moment of all time.

This should be WAY higher, like the comment bellow says, because, it's hilarious, it's great and I enjoy the ending because I love seeing Cartman get the crap beat out of him, he deserves it.

Should be WAY higher. This episode was absolutely hilarious

No no no no I despise this episode there is no possible wau to enjoy it
Should not be here

7 The Passion of the Jew

Seriously? Almost nobody voted for this? This is the ultimate combination of satire, celebrity-mockery, randomness and witty offense! This is South Park!

I was dying laughing when Cartman impersonated Hitler and got a rally to chant with him to destroy the Jews. Just goes to show what Cartman's capable of. - Turkeyasylum

Extremely offensive, hilariously mocks a celebrity, and has a social commentary aspect. Everything that makes South Park South Park is embodied in this episode. - SquirrelMonkey

HOW IS THIS NOT IN THE TOP10!?

8 Medicinal Fried Chicken

Now KFC is illegal and Cartman works with some kids as cartels to do some chicken dealing? Also, how would you like to wear a testicale coat out in public? It's no wonder how weird South Park has gotten, but this is hilarious!

Its MEDICAL fried chicken, my dude. - SpaceCakes

Reference to the cultfilm Scarface. Awesome episode!

This is so much better than the Scott tenormam episode. I hate the Scott tenormam episode, it's not even funny at all. This is the funniest episode of all time. This should be #1 easily no questions asked

9 AWESOM-O

I thought it was very satisfying to see butters accidentally get revenge on cartman throughout the whole episode. Matt Stone and Trey Parker said that it was one of their favorites, and I 100% agree. - SafetyPickle

I love how everyone was so stupid in this episode... HILARIOUS! Also, Cartman finally has something bad happen to him (having to be a robot for Butters). - Turkeyasylum

I liked it everybody in South Park is retarded and the government so stupid

Oh my god! I love this episode, because butters finally got pissed off by cartman to blackmail him. and the part where the general says "Wow kid, you're a little! " is super funny too.

10 You're Getting Old

Matt and trey looked at what the had done and decided to make an episode that instead of being bluntly crude and funny, opted for sincerity. The lament toning and sly humour, that did not deviate from their usual jokes gave us an episode of earnest beauty. Definitely a top 5 episode and definitely the best Stan episode.

One of the first episodes I saw. The FIRST one I saw that was actually serious. It completely changed the course of the season

I never expected a South Park episode to make me cry ever. Maybe it's my person struggles with cynicism and getting older, but this was a well done episode, and it's follow up episode "Ass Burgers" is a nice sequel to it.

I love that this episode didn't end with a happy resolution. Trey and Matt opted out for a bittersweet ending and did so incredibly well. I don't normally get emotional over media like movies, T.V. shows, or books, but this episode got me. The plot is gritty, but not as dark as South Park usually is. I felt depressed with Stan the whole way through. It was so relatable (funnily enough) because, as a teenager, I have had to face change, and it isn't always easy.

South Park has become hit-or-miss for me; when a new episode comes out, I either love it to death or hate it with a passion. But this episode will forever be the one that I will continue to love.

11 Casa Bonita

If you're not from Colorado, you'll never truly enjoy this episode. Casa Bonita is the Disneyland of Mexican restaurants. How bad the food is. What an amazing episode! - MEparandriod

Hilarious, this brings out Cartman more than any other episode - CrowdedChisel

HAHA.butters think hes the only survivor on earth - wolphert

Yeah, the end was the best part! when cartman said "totally" I lost it.

12 Raisins

This episode was absolutely amazing. I love it a lot and I think it deserves to be in the top 10's. It tells a good message on heartbreak.

This episode sucks. I hate the breakup between Stan and Wendy. TAKE IT OFF RIGHT NOW! - asantalo

Really? It's portraying how a lot of real breakups go, which isn't very pleasant. Plus the breakup is only at the beginning, most of the episode is how Stan deals with it. - mtndewlord

Love how they reference Skinny Puppy in this episode. I love Skinny Puppy.

13 Trapped in the Closet

Well I was just standing here, when tom cruise locked himself in the closet.

Well, I was just sitting here, looking at the top ten South Park episodes...THEN I PULLED OUT MY GUN!

I Love This Episode But What Tom Cruise Tried To Do The Show In Response Is Still Unforgivable

Well I was sitting here I thought this should be number 1...THEN I PULLED OUT MY GUN.

14 Black Friday

This Trilogy, I have to say without a doubt. Epic. The Cloudy Snowy feel of it makes it even more appealing. Nice little parody to Game of Thrones even if I don't watch it. Also I hate Black Friday (The Sales event itself) so bonus points for that.

This along with the follow up episodes was so great. The story was unique and wasn't just some cliche Thanksgiving special. The humor was funny, especially the "Stop Touching Me, Elmo" add in the first part.

Lol I love this three partner episode I laughed when craig said ha ha to Cartman when he surrendered (pfft yeah right as if he would)

This Is My Favorite Episode - ChiefMudkip

15 Insheeption

Its like a taco, inside a taco, inside a taco bell, inside a kfc, in a mall, that's inside your dream!

Seriously Even people that loved or hated that movie loved the concept and its one of the few that stand out as always being awesome.

I like how Freddy saved everyone

Young Mr Mackey is the best character ever mkay

16 Good Times With Weapons

Really? I thought this would be in the top ten for sure. This episode has a brilliant plot which is just complete awesome satire on all animes and its fantastic satire to, not to mention "Lets Fighting Love" you will not get that song out of your head, especially after seeing the English translation involving a penis, and hairy balls, I will say no more

TOP TEN! If you haven't seen it please do, the plot is awesome and all of the anime scenes are funny as well, this should definitely be in the top 10 and probably top 5! You will laugh so much!

I love the song and animation, but it feels like a bit of a Butters Torture Porn, like a Squidward Torture Porn from SpongeBob. I just feel bad for Butters the whole time.

Love this episode, especially the song, can't get it out of my head..."protect my balls! " Favourite moment is when they are all fighting using their imagination and it's in anime style but then it cuts back to the normal animation and Kenny has actually thrown the ninja star into butters eye 😂😂. I laughed out loud! The ending was hilarious too.

17 The Jeffersons

The plot was so funny and I laughed at all of the police men arrest rich black people for fun jokes.

This one cracks me up every Single time I watch it.

God damn this episode was funny!

I love this episode. I’m a huge Michael Jackson fan, and a huge South Park fan. First, they say that MJ wasn’t a child molestor, but people say he was just so they can sue him and have his money because he had an amusement park for kids in his backyard. Second, we get to see Kenny without his hood. South Park: Bigger Longer and Uncut was the only time we got to see Kenny unhooded, where he was voiced by Mike Judge (creator of King Of The Hill and Beavis and Butthead). Here, he has more words to say, and although a mask was covering his face a bit, he was still talking more clear and didn’t have a hood. Also his death was funny. - SKPE216

19 Pinkeye

This is the Halloween special! My personal favourite because of all the zombies and all the kids wearing chebacca outfits. My first episode

Cartman's "ghost" costume was the best part of this episode

Can I watch that again that was KEW

Aw awesome

20 Woodland Critter Christmas

Let me tell you why this is a good episode, you see, Cartman tells this story to torture Stan and Kyle and I think that is both clever and charming. The story gets a little bit gross and satanic, however, in the end it's all resolved and that leaves for the Christmas spirit you feel when you hear the song, "Christmas Time is Once a Year" which is a parody of every Christmas song out there... Then the ending speaks about how charming Christmas can be, wherever you are spending Christmas, it sure as hell is better than spending it in South Park.

I love the mountain lion cubs! They are so cute! Kyle, Butters, Ike and Kenny are the cutest characters in the series. Kyle is so cute! - meows

Exactly how is this a good episode?! First of all, Stan kills the mountain lion and all the baby mountin Cubs were crying. The woodland critters worship the devil, the have a blood orgy, THEY HUMPED EACH OTHER, the squirrel basically suicided, and kyle is the BAD GUY AT SOME POINT? Think about that.

WHAT? 110? Woodland Critter Christmas is the most hilarious episode ever.

21 Fishsticks

I recently started watching this show and this is one of the first ones I saw

How on EARTH is this at only number 33? this is the best episode ever!

very funny got me into south park - mcarzwashere

In school when we were talking about Kanye West presidency in 2020 (by the time it wasn't confirmed as a joke) a boy said "Kanye West is a gay fish get it gay fish'' I laughed my ass off at that joke - Ihateschool

22 Cancelled
23 Pandemic 1 & 2

Craig is so funny!

I love Craig all Craig fans better watch this Poor Craig he's so underrated I feel bad for the kid that's why he's my favorite and I fell in love with his sarcastic comments

Why is this not in the top 10? Its hilarious!

These episodes were terrible. I love south park but this one of their worst - jefflebowski

24 The Losing Edge

It was really nice to be able to relate to South Park, and they were the first to realize that not everyone liked baseball. I was shocked to see how relatable this episode was. Oh, and Randy, being the idiot he is, paid a hysterical homage to rocky. Funny, relatable, and with good references. Plus, it was nice to have an episode where I don't want to strangle Cartman with his own spinal cord as much.

Trey Parker and Matt Stone can relate to kids. It satirizes how baseball is adored by adults but hated by children because of how prolonged it is.

Randy was hilarious in this episode!

This episode is perfect!

"plan cannot possibly fail- kenny you create a distraction while you butters kick her in the balls! " - doodie-dude25

I love that ending

Best episode Ever

Lol

26 It's a Jersey Thing

This episode came out at the perfect time. I remember it fondly, I was in 8th Grade and everyone was OBSESSED with Jersey Shore and I couldn't stand it! Every spoof was SPOT-ON! - theOpinionatedOne

It is a jersey thing was so funny

One episode that Shelia was actually funny in

27 Christian Rock Hard

I nearly died of laughter when Cartman sang "Whenever I see Jesus up on that cross, I can't help admit that he looks kinda hot". - Caleb9000

Cartman got what he deserved not needed

I love this episode, it's one of my favorites, it should be in the top 10.

" I want a private beach for two, and love when jesus bites my ear." Christian rock really is like that.

28 Major Boobage

This was Kenny's best episode. I like how it presented his sex obsession and fondness for getting high. Cartman was also good, because it showed how inside, he can be a good kid.

Why cheesing? Because its fon-to-due

I live in phoenix, and I knew someone like that, this episode actually hit bill spot on.

This is my favorite episode of any show ever. I love how no matter what, Kenny finds a way to somehow get high. One of his best episodes, shows how perverted he really is. I also love how Cartman let his sweet side show and rescued all those kittehs. :D

29 Butters' Bottom Bitch

What could be funnier then Butters as a pimp? - Danny84

Let me reach over here and grab the-FREEZE! You're busted buddy, I'm a cop! Sgt. Yates is hilarious, and very underrated. He needs a bigger role for seasons to come.

I love Butters, so this is one of my favorite episodes, it deserves to be in the top 10, however, it's a bit disturbing..

Do you know what I'm saying?

30 Miss Teacher Bangs a Boy

I'm the Dawg The big bad Dawg :D

Pretty funny episode, and Cartman/Dawg was AWESOME. The ending is kind of dark, though.

31 Cartman Land

Comedic brilliance, every character is at their best, one of Kenny's funniest deaths too and Cartman's "bit he dies all the time" it's also one of the most well written episodes of South Park, this episode has everything, you feel for Kyle as you watch him go through crises, it's a good feeling to see how Stan looks out for him until he is saved, you enjoy watching Cartman's rise and downfall, and your laughing every other minute

Should be higher on this list I have never laughed harder at any episode.

The commercial is funny - Ihateschool

Hilarious - JPK

32 Asspen

If you don't vote for this on the top ten, you're gonna have a bad time.

Funny, I don't like aspen because I fell off a ski lift there.

One of my all time favorites

33 Child Abduction Is Not Funny

This episode had a unique plot and made the parents of South Park look as stupid as ever. The sub plot is what really steals the show. It is so unique and makes you laugh so hard.

In case you didn't know this is the Great Wall of South Park episode

I love great city wall.

34 The Cissy

South Park made fun of Lorde, and she actually liked it. They even made Sia sing a song pretending that she's Lorde. Brilliant.

35 Osama bin Laden Has Farty Pants

I just like this episode because it came when people needed it. We were all sad and depressed about the Middle East and the South Park comes up with this episode and makes Binladden look like an idiot. This episode will always hold a place in my heart.

This is why we need shows like South Park

Funny, I know the guy who shot bin laden.

They made fun of us by blowing us up, dickbag.

It should've been called: Terror of Mecha-Streisand - asantalo

So ironic that Kyle's speech at the end about the effectiveness of violence/threats of violence….was censored because of threats of violence. Cowards at Comedy Central gave in to terrorists.

37 Simpsons Already Did It

Professor Chaos (Butters), can't come up with his own way of creating havoc, because apparently the Simpsons have already done everything!

Yeah, even the Simpsons did Under The Dome first.

"We killed our teacher and they found our sea men in her stomach." laugh out loud - Rockas

38 Something Wall-Mart This Way Comes

Why do so many people hate this episode? - Destroyer334747

Suicide isn't funny... enough said.

41 Damien

Top 5, I was ten years old when I watched it. It was the first episode I ever watched and I was hooked from there.

"No one Likes me"
"How come"
I'm the son of the devil - Trivium

I love this episode I wish I could make storms with my anger Damien flew away two kids Kevin Stoley (I don't care about him because he's weird) and Craig (aww poor babe he must be really light)

"Oh look what Kyle got me. It's a Red Mega... Ants in the pants? ANTS IN THE PANTS, ANTS IN THE PANTS? "
Never fails to make me laugh.

42 Dead Celebrities

Oh come on? 21? This episode in my opinion was hilarious. It just mocked everything perfectly. The Chipotlaway bit was just hilarious and made me love SP even more than I already do and the Ghost Hunters bit was just hilarious! OH MY GOD THERE'S A WARM WET SENSATION TRAVELING DOWN MY LEFT THIGH! Haha. That will never get old to me and this episode at least deserves top 10.

It was the first episode seen in south park and it is my favorite one.

HI BILLY MAYS HERE WITH CHIPOTLAWAY! IF YOU'RE LIKE OTHER AmericanS, YOU LOVE CHIPOTLE BUT HATE ALL THOSE BLOOD STAINS IN YOUR UNDERWEAR! CHIPOTLAWAY CLEANS EVEN BLOOD STAINS CAUSED BY CHIPOTLE RIGHT OFF YOUR UNDERWEAR! - xandermartin98

43 It Hits The Fan
44 Chinpokomon

You Americans have such large penis

This episode has me laughing to the floor every time!

This episode offended me - Ihateschool

45 Mr. Hankey, the Christmas Poo

Only SP could get away with a character as pointless as Mr Hankey. Plus, he gets Kyle into so much trouble! They took the world's most random idea and made it work. And why'd they censor the title?

Yay first appearance of Craig Tucker Craig fans and kyles mom is a bitch

46 Timmy 2000

This episode is so underrated. Hilarious!

47 Ginger Kids

This is one of the funniest episodes - Popsicles

This episode was FUNY

Cartman is a good manlupinater and a douchbag

48 The Poor Kid

Usually all kenny does is stare at inappropriate magazines but in this episode he saved his little sister and we see the better side of kenny the loving and caring big brother. kenny's little sister is so cute!

This episode is super awesome- it shows us another side of Kenny; the more protective, older brother side. This episode also features Kenny as Mysterion when he protects his little sister, which was probably one of the best South Park moments ever. - KennyMcCormick

He obviously cares about his sister watch city part of town as well

Aw Kenny is cute

49 Butters' Very Own Episode

Butters is according to TheTopTens the 2nd best south park character of all time. So what is HIS episode doing all the way down here? - Luke72New

I think its becuase of how his parents behaved during the episode

50 With Apologies to Jesse Jackson

Pat Sajack- "the hint is people who annoy you." Randy Marsh- "N******! " Best South Park moment in my opinion.

The episode is the best because both plots are hilarious. Rand is hilarious on the wheel of fortune, and cart man fights the midget

Lol randy is the funnier version of keemstar (jk I hate keemstar randy is funny)
