Worst South Park EpisodesThough South Park is a great show, it's has its share of bad episodes, more so in seasons 7, 9, 12 & 15.
Dear Tweektards and Craig fangirls:
There’s nothing wrong with simply liking a character and ship, but harassing the creators of this show for not adding giving them a lot of screen time and bullying other people for having a different opinion than you is never okay.
Tweek Tweak is a poorly written character so instead of harassing Trey Parker and Matt Stone, just ask them normally to give Tweek development.
I was originally okay with shipping Tweek and Craig together, until I watched this terrible episode. It just feels so forced and the two characters Craig and Tweek were so out of character.
1 This episode is worse than Mr. Garrison's Fancy New Vagina and Stanley's Cup because Stanley's Cup is fine at the begin but has an horrible ending. Mr. Garrison's Fancy New Vagina is disgursting but has some funny moments. Tweek x Craig however, is unwatchable from the begin to the end because:
-The drawing are bad and show Tweek and Craig out of characters.
-Emotional? Are you kidding me? I found nothing emotional at this episde. Everything is forced. I really facepalmed when the entire town is shocked when Tweek and Craig play the "break up". And really, the final scene is definitely not emotional. Once again, it's also forced. Really, from the begin to the end, that episode is paintful to watch. It's not emotional at all and it's absolutely not funny at all. (The principal who forces Craig to say "I love you." to Tweek, I don't find it funny.)
2. Sorry but, canon ship doesn't mean good ship. And Creek is a perfect example of a bad ship! ...more
To everyone saying that Tweek and Craig's relationship was forced in this episode, it was, and was meant to be. The point of this episode wasn't to be emotional or actually turn them into a couple (even though they actually ended up becoming one), it was making fun of the people who kept trying to make them gay. As for Tweek and Craig being out of character, that really depends on what the viewer thinks, but if you are in a relationship, even if you're faking, you will probably act different around the person whom you are with. Granted, Tweek x Craig wasn't the funniest of episodes, but that didn't make it by any means the worst one.
The worst thing about this episode was the mean spirited ending where the kid dies from cancer with a broken heart when they lost game. This episode was just way too cruel and mean spirited, even for South Park standards.
How the hell did THIS episode not get number one on this list! A Million Little Fibers is bad and all, but this episode is probably the worst dead episode I've ever seen, and I only saw the ending! Lucky me to see one of the worst moments in cartoon history. And you know what's funny? Not what's supposed to be funny but what's actually funny. The ending could've worked. That's right, I said it. You want to know how? Simple. Have the hockey team (God knows I can't remember their name for the life of me) arrested for beating up the little kids and have their team win by default. That way the cancer patient wouldn't have DIED from a broken heart, the hockey team that won would've met a cathartic punishment at the hand of the law, and Stan's team wouldn't have gotten mercilessly beaten down for nothing. And, why the Hell did the hockey team get cheered on for not only taking advantage of the fact that they were playing against little kids to win the Cup, but also needlessly maim, beat ...more
Did they seriously have to kill off the kid with cancer at the end. Without the ending, this episode would still be boring and mediocre, but the ending just made the entire thing extremely unpleasant and mean-spirited. Writers, I actually don't want to see a pee-wee hockey team get beaten to a bloody pulp by a professional hockey team. I also don't want to see Stan's dad break down in tears because his dreams were crushed. And, surprisingly enough, I don't want to see an innocent kid die of cancer and his last words being, "No hope." The first time I saw this, I was literally in awe over how cruel and horrible it was. By far my least favorite episode.
Shocked that this episode is in the bottom ten. One of my all time favourite episodes.
Perhaps you have to have a particular sense of humour to appreciate this episode, a sense of humour that I assumed most South Park fans would share.
Stan's reluctance at being coach is hilarious throughout, and the needlessly sad bits peppered throughought the episode are genius; "my cancer hurts", the adult hockey team needlessly beating down the kids team, and the "no hope" line at the end has me laughing just thinking about it.
Grow a brane if you don't like this episode.
This episode is utter crap. Towelie is too boring a character to have an entire episode, and the whole thing is just bland and not funny. Also the event is satirised isn't that well known so to a lot of people it Just seems like nonsense
Guys strongly enough I felt sorry for towelie, and hated everyone else, I mean come on a towel just wrote a book that's not credible for anything, I seriously wanted to beat the crap out of the publisher. I know towelie can be annoying but he deserved a whole lot better in this episode
I honestly couldn't even this episode. The story line is all out of wacky, confusing, and just kind of stupid. Stanley's Cup was 10 times funnier and more entertaining than this garbage episode.
This episode annoys the crap out of me. Even though Towelie is a funny character his very own episode is horrible.
This is my least favorite of all time. It's not that I hated it because it's disgusting and graphic, but because it's transphobic as hell. They're basically saying transsexuality is the same thing as getting a surgery to become tall and black or a dolphin. It's completely inaccurate as well, as Mr. Garrison didn't have to live as a woman before having surgery, and was completely uninformed on what the operation would and wouldn't do. I'm transsexual myself (but female to male) and I know they don't just hand out instant sex changes on the daily to anyone with the money for it. Transition takes a lot of time. I know South Park is complete satire and not meant to be taken seriously, but you can usually see what they honestly think about certain issues and do their research. This is a perfect example of criticism and ignorance from their end as well as the characters on the show.
This is not only the worst episode they did, but this is the grossest episode they've ever done. This episode is basically about Mr. Garrison becoming a woman, Kyle becoming a black guy, and Gerald becoming a dolphin. That's really all I need to say because this episode is packed with tons of filler, unfunny jokes against transgender people, and a PLETHORA of grossout humor. Did I mention they showed live action footage of a sex change operation, and explained the procedure in GRUESOME detail? According to Matt and Trey, there was originally going to be 5 full uncut minutes of this! This episode has NOTHING going for it at all. It's graphic, it's offensive, and it's boring.
Like some other people commented here were saying; this episode was just transfobic, and thinking the status of transgender people in pretty much everywhere in the world now, it just was not funny. To compair being transgender to "wanting to be a dolphin" is ignorant, stupid and, have I said it yet, transfobic. I generally like the show, but there are a few times the creators of the show should have been either thought about it a little longer or just kept their mouths shut. Having another not-engaged, ignorant people to create stereotypes for groups already discriminated against, is not funny or anything, it's simply offensive in a manner that's not going to lead anywhere but to more discrimination and stereotypes.
Most disturbing, disgusting piece of animation known to history and when I think of South Park, I don't even want to THINK of this episode, South Park has amazing and groundbreaking episodes, but this certainly isn't more of them. Showing live sex change footage made me have to leave the room, SO disgusting... I generally skip this one.
The most boring and skip-able episode.
Well, it was good to see that there are episodes that focus on some more minor characters, and while this one did have its share of laughs, it wasn't too interesting.
Thanks to A Million Little Fibers, this is now only my second least favourite episode. Though despite being a chore to sit through, Malcolm McDowell's scenes as "A British Person" are what save this episode from being completely unwatchable, in fact it's worth watching just for him alone.
This the only episode I can say it about it sucks.
Plus, just for common knowledge this is the shows creators least favorite episode too.
?! 🤯 This is among my favorite episodes. It was the moment that South Park really let us, the viewers, know what it really is about. South Park is not just for gross out laughs. It's a surreal show that can parody itself. The random quirkiness of it all really drives home the creativity of Stone and Parker. This is the episode where I became a devoted South Park fan.
Come on guys! This is the episode (from Season 2) where Matt and Trey were supposed to reveal who Cartman's father was and they blew it off. It was an April fools prank to make the worst episode... And they did just that.
This episode was so stupid I didn't even watch the whole thing!
It's 20 minutes of Terrance and Philip. Enough said.
There are some clever concepts in this episode, and it's SO satisfying to see Cartman get what he DESERVES, but most of it is just an excuse to abuse Kyle. You thought Toilet Paper didn't pay good homage to Silence of the Lambs, and that it was bland and unfunny, well, Human CentiPad does this even WORSE. Plus, I'm pretty sure it's pretty embarrassing to make Steve Jobs look like a sadistic madman in the one episode he appears in, and then have him die shortly afterwards. Gross, unfunny, with some of the WORST gross-out humor in South Park history (and that's saying a lot), it has a few decent qualities, but is still overall just stupid.
Disgusting, disturbing, and very hard to watch episode. Why would south park put something that screwed up then take it way to far. Kyle is a little kid and they put in in that situation. That is what makes this episode worse than Stanley's cup or million little fibers. Watching toddlers get beat up by a team of grown men is bad put not as bad is watching Kyle and two other people get put on the thing. I had I harder time watching that than any other episode in south park. There was nothing good about that episode or nothing funny.
Guys! For those of you who don't understand, they are making a parody of a horror film called "The Human Centipede". It wasn't trey and matt's idea to do this! Plus have you people watched "6 days to air"? Trey clearly said that the episode is a PARODY, now get over it.
Why the hell are people saying that Kyle lost some of his popularity here?! Why would what he was put through make you HATE him rather than FEEL BAD for him? Cause he's really not so wrong about the whole 'not reading the terms and conditions' thing.
I love South Park so much, and have a REALLY dark sense of humor at times, but this was disturbing. Real suicide is something that really makes me uncomfortable and I don't find it funny at all. The only time I think South Park made it funny was when the Japanese man jumped off the tower. But this episode was extremely boring and disturbing. It should be the number one!
Hated this one. As someone who has been suicidal before, this freaked me out to many new levels. Not a lot offends me on South Park, but this one really did it.
I hated this episode so much because Britney couldn't do anything about it that she still lived and everyone didn't end that at all...
Very uncomfortable feelings in this episode, skip it if you can.
This was extremely disturbing, not even funny or witty at all. I get it, those photographers are bad and money motivates them. But the whole show, showing britneys blown off head. Damn sick. This has to be the worst peice of garbage episode.
This episode was actually the last episode to feature the voice of Mary Kay Bergman, who died on November 11, 1999, shortly before this episode aired. That is why The Red Badge of Gayness lacks a lot of involvement from female characters, and This episode as well as Starvin Marvin in Space were dedicated to her memory, as was one of the Scooby Doo movies from the late 90s (she voiced Daphne in addition to South park)
There is no reason why this episode is even on this list (all songs were funny)?
Ok its official. everyone here has no taste in humor
No, you are thinking of the old one, from the 90's. THAT was funny. but this, is a dried up lump.
I LOVED how eric was so terrified of the Chinese and it was HILARIOUS when they "invaded the Chinese headquarters " and tried to get information from some random Chinese family. The part about Indiana RUINED this episode. They had like only five minutes on the Chinese total and all of the rest was about how the boys were traumatized from a movie. By the way I didn't think Stanleys Cup was so bad.
Honestly I loved this one it seemed interesting really funny, and they managed to show how opposed we are with movies and shows. A guilty pleasure to me and a really great episode for butters. Especially his closing line " can't believe they threw him in jail I thought that movie was pretty good
I really enjoyed that episode. Too bad one of the two parts is shocking. Without that, it could be one of my favourite.
The subplot with Indiana Jones was stupid, but I liked the Chinese plot lol
Oh, Come on! ManBearPig was a good one! There's a number of good episodes that shouldn't be on this list, such as Casa Bonita, All about Mormons, and The Ring.
This is one of the best
This is one of the best episodes, I'm super cereal
Al gore is annoying in this, and he even appeared again in imaginationland
No joke, I'm pretty sure when it came to Cartman eating the tears, I'm pretty sure I was going to vomit
This Episode was retarded. Cartman made Scott eat his parents... It is so not cool even for Eric.
I enjoy this episode. The ending was terrible, but the rest of the episode was damn awesome!
Eric Cartman did go a bit too far in this episode but I still like him
Should be number one. Crab people my ass. Not funny. Was this episode made by Justin Bieber? So bad that even Trey and Matt hate it.
Kyle did not deserve to be beaten up by the other kids after he broke away from the fad! Like in many other situations, he was showing that he is not as easily influenced as them, & that's an excellent quality for a character to have!
What they made my favorite character a right jerk
Not Bad, But It Could Have Been Funnier
How is this episode even in the top 10? This episode was hilarious and genius that they spliced recorded parts of Issac Hayes and re-used them. - djc20
Though I know that they had no choice with Isaac Hayes leaving due to the Scientology episode the episode was funny... Until the end but Trey Parker and Matt Stone's jobs are to mess with us as bad as possible eh hem Stanley's cup well though it find this to be the worst is still has hilarious parts I really just don't like the ending. This just proves that South Park is so good that even the worst episode is still funny
Making fun of celebs in a bad taste way is what we know and love this show for, but ersonally I think Matt and Trey just came off as jerks here. From what I've heard, Isaac Hayes was a nice enough guy, he was put in a tough spot and left the show. Why treat him and the character of Chef like this? Worst of all...there's not one laugh in the episode. - truckturner
THEY RUINED CHEF! I liked that character until he joined a club full of child molesters (stupid idea). Now I feel nothing but hate for a once beloved character.
This episode is just plain gross. I know that they are ticks and are just parasites, and I can see how South Park often looks at things from a different point of view, but Jesus, did it have to be THAT graphic? On top of that, Clyde isn't a very interesting character, and the boys in this episode are just over-the-top cruel.
I don't find this episode gross, just boring.
It's just disgusting, even for South Park. I feel nothing but pitty for Clide.
This episode makes me cringe every time. Especially the part with the rid-X. I am not sure whether to take pity on the lice or be insanely angry with them for being so nonchalant that they are causing harm to Clyde. Or should I be mad at Clyde for causing harm to the lice? what the heck am I supposed to feel here. on top of all that it's not just Clyde it's ALL the kids and they just want to focus on clyde? sheesh louise.
Pretty boring, it didn't have such a good story. It was boring and had a really dumb ending. It started ok but it ended bad.
The stupid idea that someone take a crap in a Urinal has to do with the September 11
Such a stupid concept. - ZZDOORAL
I really hated Eric in this one enough said
This episode did NOT age well. I would even argue it takes the "wrong" side, and there are episodes I love that disagree with my views.
I could never understand the point of this episode. It just treats the tobacco company as an underdog. It had very little to say.
I like toilet paper and butt out I not understand why people hate those episodes
I hate this episode so much
Just another Stan torture porn, and I really hate that park ranger. Hmm weird is it me or are park rangers meant to be hated in cartoons, I mean we have ranger smith and know this guy, ahh must be a confidence. I close by staying stay away from or anywhere near Yellowstone you'll think me for it
It pretty much turned every character into a dickhead and the episode is just boring and not funny. Stanley's cup is still the worst, but I needed to comment on this one.
This episode isn't boring it is anything but boring - 445956
This episode is great! - Fireboy
Boring and overrated
Josh Myers creeps me out...
Pointless, boring, and brief butters abuse my work is done
The silence of the lambs parody is well executed and fits with the idea behind the episode. Otherwise it’s mediocre
This episode is gross and boring as heck. God it has no point.
I hated this episode mostly because of the queef sisters and I'm a girl
Stop calling just characters like Kyle & Wendy hypocrites! ALL OF SOUTH PARK is quite a hypocrisy, especially in this! SP is my favorite show, but that's the truth I've realized!
All the men are sexist retards and hypocrites
Most annoying episode it's like listening to a screaming child on a plane
This is a personal favorite of mind
This is one of the best. I actually like the Lemmiwinks stuff for the LotR parody - 445956
Honestly, the Lemmiwinks plot was stupid and not funny. The only reason it was probably put in was because they needed filler for the episode. Although, there were some funny moments, such as when the worker couldn't tolerate smoking at the Museum of Tolerance. - Turkeyasylum
Oh, come on it was an excellent episode in my opinion
This proves that South Park is the worst at parenting.
Really dumb and pointless episode
I like this episode
