Worst South Park Episodes

Though South Park is a great show, it's has its share of bad episodes, more so in seasons 7, 9, 12 & 15.

The Top Ten

1 Tweek x Craig

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

I'm going to be honest here. When this episode first came out, I thought it was alright, it had a few moments that made me laugh (and some that made me cringe), but I thought it was ok. However, as more time has gone by, and I've thought about it more, and seen the effects it's left behind now. I'm going to have to say I don't really like this episode at all anymore. So much so that, to the point I wish it was never created now. This episode set off a catalyst in the fandom, and oh god is it bad. Because of this episode, Creek is all anyone ever talks about in the fandom now. All. The. Time. It makes me miss what this fandom used to be like before it ever happened, when people could just talk about theories, and quotes and just have fun making dumb memes of things that used to be in the show. Ever since this episode aired, it's been non-stop "Creek this" or "Creek that" and it's just tiresome. It feels like it's all anyone in this fandom cares about anymore and ...more

"Asians decide who's going to be gay" Asian MY ASS! This episode is not funny, gross and forces two boys to be gay although they're not! Now South Park lost everything! Hope they won't stay together! Hope your happy Trey and Matt! By listening those yaoi slut, you just created the worth South Park episode I've even seen!

Tired of all the creek in the fandom lol.

2 Stanley's Cup

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 - regularshowman

All of you are getting mad at this. But you like other episodes and you probably like Eric Cartman (who played as Adolf Hitler in a episode, someone who killed Jewish children and Jewish adults) but since this one is directly at children with cancer you get mad. Then don't watch South Park!

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. - SafetyPickle

I get that they wanted to make fun of sports movie endings but they already made a parody of Bad News Bears

3 A Million Little Fibbers

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

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

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.

Yeah I was so confused with oprahs vagina talking. I just left

4 Mr. Garrison's Fancy New Vagina

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.

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.

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.

It was just so... stupid. I honestly like pretend this episode never happened because the whole thing w Kyle being black and his dad turning into a dolphin nearly made me vomit

The most boring and skip-able episode. - egnomac

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. - BHarribo

Poor baby bunnies. - Popsicles

6 HumancentiPad

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.

How would anyone buy three people connected to each other and how it would be legal

7 The Return of Chef

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

Oh my god, this episode was dreadful. They treat it like a Star Wars spoof, when there is NO REFERENCE to Star Wars at all. - railfan99

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

10 Mystery of the Urinal Deuce

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

The Contenders

11 South Park is Gay

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

It's not bad, @jackwoodrick. I like those episodes, especially Chef goes nanners and South park is gay

12 Mr. Hankeys Christmas Classics

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.

13 The China Probrem

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.

Why would you idiots like this? it has rape!

14 I Should Have Never Gone Ziplining

"Maybe I just have a weird sense of humor, but I found this episode to be extremely funny. Don't know what all the hate is about."

They hated it because of the live action scene. I thought the live action scene was extremely funny too.

I liked it until the real life part, that sucked ass

Well, it's just show the main boys suffering. Really not funny. Thanks Stan for using your friends for a crappy Ipod.

Live action made it super cringey

This episode is great it's hilarious and very very bold! Just cause it almost got terrorist attacked doesn't make it bad

I for one loved this one

Stupid episode. It didn't get 'terrorist attacked'. The show was censored by comedy central because a crazy Jewish guy (who later got convicted) pretended to be a Muslim extremist group and threatened Matt and Trey. They didn't even want to censor it, but CC has no basketballs.

This title should’ve been Called: Terror of Mecha-Streisand. Though this episode is great! - asantalo

All of you who didn't like this are probably fat. This is just making fun of fat people in the U.S. schools system, (which is a serious issue that isn't being solved) and to whoever said they felt bad for Eric is completely ignorant. Cartman wanted to kill all the Jews, and WAY MORE crazy stuff than just burning a teddy bear and making fun of fat people. You people are so soft.

It sucks ass. Seriously. Cartman is my favourite character and they had to do this. I really felt bad for him.

What the heck...Why do people feel sorry for Eric? He literally just shot his stuffed animals. I love Cartman, but really, it wasn't that sad or anything.

ah

18 Smug Alert!

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.

19 Butt Out

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

20 Toilet Paper

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

21 Roger Ebert Should Lay Off the Fatty Foods

Worst name for a south park episode. - ZZDOORAL

Although that is the most pointless and unfunny episode name I did like the story

22 Terrance and Phillip in Not Without My Anus

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.

It's 20 minutes of Terrance and Philip. Enough said.

Hated it. Couldn't even sit through this one.

23 The Death Camp of Tolerance

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.

The South Park episode where Lemmiwinks gets shoved up a man's ass. Better yet, this episode was the influence for arguably the worst song ever created: "FACK" by Eminem. - DCfnaf

24 Eat, Pray, Queef

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 - Ihateschool

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!

It sucks

Most annoying episode it's like listening to a screaming child on a plane

This is a personal favorite of mind

26 The Mexican staring frog of southern Sri Lanka

I hated mr garrison in this episode

I voted this one to get humancentipad further away from the top. Something was just utterly hilarious to me about cartmans rape allegations towards his mother. People are too easily grossed out the the humancentpede spoof so that they don't fully value the cartman moments, I mean it's one of the great cartman moments when he actually accuses his mother of raping him on doctor phil just because he didn't get an Ipad.

27 Cow Days
28 Britney's New Look

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!

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.

Boring and headless Britney Spears was disturbing...

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 is actually awesome. In fact, it's one of the best.

It's a good episode with a lot of great Butters moments, but it's too much for one episode and the ending really shows.

I like this episode but stop abusing poor butters

33 Eek, A Penis!

If you have never had to watch Stand and Deliver, this was probably a dumb episode. Who didn't like penis mouse singing a duet with his penis?

Dull on so many levels.

34 Gnomes

WHAT!? This episode was super funny, with the gnomes, but then again, I am only 12.

This is one of my favorite episodes. I love Tweek.

I LOVE THIS EPISODE! Tweak is such an amazing character is hilarious. I'd recommend this to anyone! :D

35 Moss Piglets

Heidi is the worst. Enough said.

36 PC Principal Final Justice

Kyle continues to be out of character from Truth and Advertising by STILL blaming Stan for having PCA stay at South Park and Randy being part of it. Ya know Kyle, protecting that AD Leslie won't stop you from anything, it only makes things worse. And it was clearly your fault that PC Principal would continue being Principal for the next 10 episodes yet to come because you brought Leslie at the gun show. I'm not supporting PCA or Bruce Jenner but you and Stan pointing guns at each other made both of you look like enemies, you're still not friends, and you Kyle decide to be on Cartman's side? That kid always ripped on you for being Jewish and even supported Hitler! Kyle I just don't even know what the hell happened to you lately. (All in my opinion)

Pc principal was taken in by the army so why was he allowed to be the principal again?

Stunning and Brave =worst season opening ever.
Tweek X Craig = worst episode ever.
PC Principal Final Justice = worst season final ever.
Season 19 = WORST SEASON EVER!
Since we got that PC bull, South Park is entirely ruined. Jokes are not funny, all the episodes theme have be ruined by the PC bull! South Park isn't the same as he was now. Trey and Matt turned their show into a dangerous path.

41 The End of Serialization as We Know It

42 Going Native

What the hell is this doing here... - DemonSpider253

43 Obama Wins!

Only forgettable election episode, About Last Night is a way better and funnier election episode than this crap.

I mostly hated it because I voted for Mccain - Ihateschool

What!? This Episode Was Funny!

44 Put It Down

Not one of the worst episode, but definitely a bad episode. Once again focused on political stuff. (Oh, guess who is behind that? President Garrison!) Plus, it's also focused on Tweek and Craig's relationship and here, we got the real definition of "Cringy fanfic with two characters who are out of characters." Say everything you want, but I don't call that a character's development but ruining two characters by making them out of characters, and it's not their "rare" usual trait which gonna save them. Everything they do are exaggerated and made them out of character in this episode. (Like if Tweek x Craig wasn't enough because these two were bad here.) Not to mention that Cartman who still like Heidi is definitely not Cartman. I know Kenny died here but he chose the wrong episode to die. Beside, the next episode was not even better. Guess South Park got the same curse as Family guy: After a major change, these shows became unwatchable and despite trying everything, ...more

Honestly, with how much everybody in the fandom keeps talking about creek so much now, it's kind of made me dislike seeing them in any episodes, or episodes that focus on them. I'm just kind of tired of them by this point. Even though they may not appear much in the actual show, it's just the fact that they are talked about so much in the fandom now, that's just so 'Meh' to me now.

It was really lame and boring. Cartman who try to get Heidi back and Tweek and Craig who are cliche and out of character here. Even Kenny's death won't save it.

Actually the worst s21 episode. Trey and Matt keep jumping the shark. They still getting bad ideas since s19 but also, in this episode, they lied when they said they back off Trump jokes: It's JUST the second episode and there is already a Trump joke! I don't care if it's a reponse to Trump's reaction to North Korea, once again, South Park keep becoming a political show! And it's not these finger spinners (which were already annoying when they have been created) which gonna make this episode interesting because everything on this episode are forgettable, from Trump jokes to finger spinners, no exception!

45 Casa Bonita

I am utterly shocked to see this on here! This was the first episode I ever watched of South Park and it's still one of my favorites.

Not to be prejudice or anything but if you hate Cartman (even though he's prejudice) you obviously hate South Park. This is a funny episode.

This episode is good! Stop hating on it!

Just a boring, one-dimensional excuse for Cartman to have more screen time HE DOESN'T DESERVE. Man, I wish it was "Cartman Dies" instead.

46 Starvin' Marvin In Space

One of the TOP 5 episodes of all time.

DId not serve justice to the original Starvin' Marvin - HeavyMetalHero

47 Member Berries

Just really boring. I much prefer the episodes where they aren't chock-full of pop-culture references and current events because they aren't such a huge hit or miss and don't get unfunny and irrelevant with time. At least the Michael Jackson episodes and some others with pop-culture references had enough creative story and jokes to still be good years later.

That episode was just pure boring because most of the time it focuses on nothing and it's not as good as the second part

48 Lice Capades

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.
