Cartman's Mom is Still a Dirty Slut (2) - S2-E2

Corrected entry: When Mrs. Cartman goes in to ask for an abortion, the person at the counter claims that Cartman, at eight years old, is in the "fortieth trimester." Since a trimester is about three months long, 40 would mean about 10 years since conception, or a child of about 9 years and 3 months. An eight-year-old, plus three trimesters of development, would actually be in the thirty-fifth trimester.

Kathy Tjarks

Correction: It was a rough estimation.

Erection Day - S9-E7

Corrected entry: Why doesn't Jimmy know what to do with an erection? In episode 6-16: "My Future Self n' Me," he says that he and his girlfriend took ecstasy and had sex.

DavidK93

Correction: In "My Future Self n' Me", Jimmy was telling a joke. This is obvious because among other things, if he'd actually taken ecstasy then he wouldn't have been afraid to touch the marijuana. Jimmy presumably heard the "in her vagina" joke somewhere and just recognized it'd be funny in that situation.

Krazy Kripples - S7-E2

Corrected entry: When Cartman bursts into the church to announce the "cripple fight", Kyle's parents are inside. What are they doing at church? They're Jewish.

Correction: Perhaps they attended because they were invited? Because it was friendship day? Because they wanted to see a Christian service? Or because of any other possible reason.

Free Hat - S6-E9

Corrected entry: One of the guys says that they had always meant to have dewback lizards in the background, but the lizard appears in the foreground. (00:15:00)

Sol Parker

Correction: A) This is a joke about idiot directors. B) "In the background", in film, actually can refer to everything but the primary action of the scene.

Professor Chaos - S6-E6

Corrected entry: Usually Butters' house has a green interior, during this episode, it has a dark blue interior.

Sol Parker

Correction: This is not an error. A green interior switching to a blue interior within the same episode or scene would be an error. Good Trivia? Yes. Mistake? No.

Cartmanland - S5-E6

Corrected entry: In this episode, Cartman's grandmother leaves him a million dollars that he immediately uses to buy an amusement park. This is not possible AT ALL. Firstly, Cartman is a minor. If his grandmother left him that much money she would have put it in trust and he wouldn't have been able to get it all at once until he was of age. Secondly, he would not have received the money that quickly. It can take from months to years before the payout on an estate begins. It is an extremely frustrating process (I would know, when my grandfather died it took almost a year before we saw a dime.) And even if by some miracle Cartman got the money that day, he would not have been able to buy an amusement park because, again, he is a minor. Minors cannot buy property in the state of Colorado. Also, he would not have received exactly a million dollars even if that is what his grandmother left him, as it would be taxed unless it was in a government bond, which was not mentioned at the will reading. Therefore, this episode is a COMPLETE impossibility.

Correction: It is a cartoon that has no ties to reality. Stan's dad ends up in the hospital because he "got served". Kenny used to die in every single episode and reappear in the next like nothing ever happened. Aliens visited and placed a satellite tracking system in Cartman's butt. Kyle underwent "Negroplasty" surgey (to become a tall black kid) and his dad became a dolphin. The laws of reality and the legal system of the real Colorado have nothing to do with South Park.

You Got F*cked in the Ass - S8-E4

Corrected entry: According to the newspaper, Butters's loose shoe caused the deaths of 8 people. Yet, in the flashback, more people die.

Correction: They show 8 people get killed, and the others could've been injured.

Chickenlover - S2-E4

Corrected entry: After the chicken lover is caught he claims he did it to help Barbrady learn to read. But Barbrady admitted to himself and the rest of South Park he couldn't read while already investigating the case.

Correction: Exactly - so Barbrady had to force himself to learn how to read in order to solve the case, because it's only after he's learned to read that the Chicken Lover is caught.

Cartman Gets an Anal Probe - S1-E1

Corrected entry: When Cartman gets home from school and tells his mom about his day and about the kids calling him fat, he has gloves. then when he starts to sit on the couch, he has no gloves on.

Correction: Cartman would have had plenty of time to take his gloves off between the shots.

Something Wall-Mart This Way Comes - S8-E9

Corrected entry: When entering Wall-Mart, Mrs. Brofloski points to Grandpa Marsh and says to Stan's mom, "Isn't that your father?". Grandpa Marsh is the father of Stan's dad.

Correction: Mrs. Brofloski was asking a question, that was never answered, so the answer would be "No, he's my Father-in-law." Or if she really considered him a Dad, she could answer "Yes".

Mr. Hankey's Christmas Classics - S3-E15

Corrected entry: During the dreidel song Kyle's mother comes in, but you can barely hear her voice. This is because the woman that played all of the female voices committed suicide in the middle of the 3rd season, so they had to find another person and they turned down the sound of her voice so no one would hear any differences between the real voice and the voice they used in this episode.

Correction: Not quite. It is true that Mary Kay Bergman killed herself in the middle of season three, but it actually is her voice in this episode. The songs from this episode were from an album the creators put out of the same title (Mr. Hankey's Christmas Classics.) The album was recorded and released long before this episode aired. They simply animated an episode to the album because they were stuck with no female voices after the only one was dead and had no other ideas or time to think of any. The reason Kyle's mother sounds like that is due to the mono sound systems on most TVs. Since albums are meant to be heard on CD players, stereo versions of the songs are usually created. If a stereo song is played on a mono device (such as a TV,) some sounds may be muffled or completely blocked out (if you don't believe me, play Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Heart's Club Band on a DVD player with no surround sound system or stereo.) Matt and Trey probably had no time to worry about stereo/mono conversions and simply aired it as it was. When I watched my season 3 DVD on my portable DVD player (which has stereo,) her voice was at normal volume.

Helen Keller! The Musical - S4-E13

Corrected entry: After Cartman's mom tells him he has twenty minutes to finish his play, Cartman says "Did Tim Rice's mom give him twenty minutes to write the lyrics to 'Phantom of the Opera?'" Tim Rice did not write the lyrics to "Phantom of the Opera," Charles Hart did. This was not a deliberate mistake or a comment derived from Cartman's stupidity, as musical theatre is too obscure of a topic for fans to laugh at when Cartman screws up its information.

Correction: As a matter of fact, it is precisely a character's mistake due to Cartman's obtuseness, and it is not that obscure of a topic if a fan just like yourself picks up on his blunder.

Show generally

Corrected entry: Chef is never shown from his side. He's either facing the camera or facing directly away from it, even when he's walking across the screen, not turning 90 degrees like other characters.

Correction: Chef is shown walking side on in the episode Cartman Gets an Anal Probe (series 1). For what it's worth, I first read this trivia entry yesterday and thought "Hey, that's right." Then last night I just happened to see Cartman Gets an Anal Probe on TV and there it was.

Roger Ebert Should Lay Off the Fatty Foods - S2-E11

Corrected entry: Dr. Adams has a rare bone disorder that prevents his pronouncing the "T" in planetarium. But when he is hypnotising the children, he refers to it as the planetarium with the "T".

Correction: That's the whole point, he's hypnotised the entire town so whenever he says "planetarium" with the "T" he has them under his spell. To cover this he can't say "planetarium" normally else they'll slip into a conditioned response and give the game away, hence he fakes the disorder.

The Super Best Friends - S5-E3

Corrected entry: If Jesus can fly like he does at the end of the episode, why did he need to take an airplane to the Super Best Friends Headquarters?

Correction: Jesus' flying at the end doesn't mean he can fly literally cross-country. I can run pretty easily during a football game, but that doesn't mean I can run to South Park, CO from Washington, D.C.

Good Times With Weapons - S8-E1

Corrected entry: When Kyle is talking about getting rid of the weapons, Cartman says he can't throw away something he paid $15 for. At the booth that sold the weapons, the nunchucks were priced at $7.95

Correction: Cartman sucks at math. Its well established (such as the "Cow Days" episode, where Cartman remarks "Yeah, but I forgot I suck at math.").

Good Times With Weapons - S8-E1

Corrected entry: If Butters had been hit that hard in the head with a saw blade, he'd be in a much more critical state in which he'd pass out in seconds.

Correction: He was hit with a shuriken, not a saw blade. The shuriken weighed a few grams (well less than a pound), like all such devices.

Up the Down Steroid - S8-E2

Corrected entry: You can't leave 'disability' blank. It's the most important question that has to be filled out, as it determines the participants division.

Correction: Congratulations: you've discovered the entire point of that joke.

Show generally

Corrected entry: In the first episode "Cartman gets an Anal Probe" Stan throws up whenever Wendy tries to talk to him. He also throws up at gore during "South Park Bigger, Longer and Uncut". But he rarely pukes at gore or when Wendy speaks to him in the episodes.

Correction: This isn't a goof, its just the characters' personalities and behavior changing. Its no different from Cartman's voice being different in the 9th season as compared to the 1st season.

Starvin' Marvin in Space! - S3-E13

Corrected entry: The cheesy song button is the same button that activates the wormhole.

Correction: So? To quote Prof. Farnsworth in Futurama, "it can do other things." I have only two buttons on my mouse on my laptop, but clicking the mouse does different things in different situations.

Over Logging - S12-E6

Factual error: Kyle says he has to log on before school. The next shot shows "Monday 8 days later." 8 days before is a Sunday. (00:04:45)
