Great cartoon, just a tad controvertial at times though..haha. all my friends really like it and its pretty agonising when im watching it with them because one of the characters has a stammer. i also think its kinda funny when theyre talking about it and theyre just about to do an impression of the stutterer but realise im there so they just say it normally even though the humour was supposed to be in the characters stutter.
the thing is if i didnt have a stutter id probably find it hilarious so i try to think of it that way.
another thing thats a bit strange is that its on at 6.30p.m on irish public television:confused:
yeah just thought id waffle about that for a bit..

I did watch this show several years ago when it was shown on Channel 4 and Sky One in England. I think it was taken off those channels and possibily moved to Paramount Comedy but I stopped watching it at that point. Is the show still going in the USA and if so is is still up to the quality of the early episodes or has it run out of steam?

www.southparkzone.com has every single episode. I think the show is unbelievably funny, especially in the last few seasons. As for the stuttering character, well, in the words of the creators, "either everything's OK [to make fun of], or nothing is."

I love south park. I do however find the role of Jimmy very funny. I don't know, but sometimes I can't help but laugh at stuttering. We seriously look very funny when doing it :) So don't get mad at your friends if they chuckle now and then.
I prefer allsp.com for watching south park episodes.

Its still running strong. This past season was okay. But my favorite south park is still the South Park: Bigger Longer & Uncut. And also every episode where they make fun of Canada is pretty damn funny (like episode 715 - It's Christmas Time in Canada).

I was uncomfortable with it originally, but I found it made it a lot easier for me to discuss it with my friends. If this is a way for the general public to be exposed to stuttering, I'm all right with it, because it isn't being addressed anywhere else.

We're talking about the character with crutches right?

Would someone be able to post a link to an episode with the stuttering character? I used to watchthe show back in the first 2 or 3 seasons. Lost track of it completely.
