No one could account what kind of phenom "South Park"
would be when it debuted during August 1997. I must admit, I
was one of the watchers who tuned into the first broadcast,
and after it ended, I was hooked to the show. I thought it
was hilarious, really original too. I taped the episode, and
from episodes then and on, and have seen them tons and tons
of times. Of course, the show spawned a hit movie and a ton
of catchphrases "They killed Kenny!", "Respect my
authori-tah!" etc.) I consider myself a fan from the start,
and was happy that Warner and Rhino were releasing episodes
every year on DVD. Now I could finally replace my worn out
tapes. (This is probably the final time you'll see this darn
intro which I've used for the other five volumes).
The sixth volume of South Park has more mountain town
fun. The first episode is a big fan favorite, and spawned a
hit single in England, entitled "Chef's Chocolate Salty
Balls". This episode has a Sundance like film festival in
South Park, where evil Hollywood executives plan to ruin the
town. As so much garbage gets in the sewer system, we meet
our old friend, Mr. Hanky, who's dying from all the junk
people are dumping. It's up to Kyle and friends to save the
"Chickenpox" deals with Cartman's mom and Stan and Kyle's
parents trying to expose them to Chickenpox by going over to
Kenny's house. Feeling used by their parents, the kids
decide to give their folks a pretty bad sickness to get back
at then. Meanwhile, Kenny and Kyle's dad, who used to be
best friends, try to get together once again.
"Roger Ebert Should Lay Off The Fatty Foods" has the town
planetarium in an evil scheme to control the minds of
everyone in South Park. Also, Cartman tries out to be in the
Cheesy Poofs commercial.
Finally, "Clubhouses" has Stan and Kyle against Cartman
and Kenny as they build clubhouses to impress the girls.
Meanwhile, Stan's parents go ahead with a divorce, putting
Stan in a state of confusion and awkwardness.
It looks just the same as the other volumes. The transfer
for each episode is in full frame of 1.33:1. Detail is very
good, and colors stand out. A step above as watching it on
The episodes are in 2.0 Dolby Digital Surround. It sounds
just like it does on TV. Dialogue is crisp and easy to
understand, and the music sounds fine.
The usual, stupid sketches of Trey Parker and Matt Stone
(the show creators) introducing each episode is included, as
well as a Comedy Central trailer highlighting their other
Once again, for a good price and a decent presentation,
you can own four more episodes of the beloved animated
(4/5 (average of all four
episodes), NOT included in final score)
