Show generally

Corrected entry: Cut-out characters frequently cast shadows on the background where they shouldn't. A good example is during "Weight gain 4000" - when Mr Garrison is talking to officer Barbrady, he casts a shadow on the sky. This is very noticeable on almost every episode.

Correction: This isn't a mistake, its part of the gag of the show: the incredibly simplistic animated style isn't intended to be photorealistic. Incidentally, the only episode of the show that is cut-outs is "Cartman Gets an Anal Probe." Every subsequent episode is animated via computer software.

Weight Gain 4000 - S1-E3

Corrected entry: When Mayor McDaniels goes on her rant, her aide says that her microphone is on, even though there is no point to do that as everyone had already left.

Sol Parker

Correction: That still doesn't make it a good idea. Most of the people are walking away and are still in earshot of the speakers.

Cartman's Silly Hate Crime 2000 - S4-E2

Corrected entry: The same two cars leading the car chase are the same two cars that are in the front of the road block - how did they get past so quick?

Sol Parker

Correction: It wouldnt be particularly hard, considering Cartman's 'car' was travelling at about 5 mph.

Proper Condom Use - S5-E7

Corrected entry: In the episode about the sex education, when Mr. Mackey is talking to Miss Chokesondick he says his head kept growing and growing but his body stayed normal, yet in the episode when he becomes a hippy he takes off his tie meaning his tie made his head big.

Correction: It is perfectly possible that Mr. Mackey has been wearing a tie since childhood, and never took it off. After all, it's South Park, and there are a lot of weird things going on there (like characters never changing their clothes and the town being destroyed a few times a month).

It's Christmas in Canada - S7-E15

Corrected entry: In the South Park timeline, Saddam Hussein was secretly killed by US forces quite some time ago. That is how he went to Hell, became romantically involved with Satan, and was ultimately banished to Heaven with the Mormons, where he was last seen building weapons of mass destruction under the guise of a cookie factory. So how is it that he's now alive and usurping the Prime Ministry of Canada? Kenny repeatedly returning from the dead is an established fact of the show, but the Saddam subplot has been maintained consistently throughout the show's lifetime, except in this instance.

DavidK93

Correction: One of the points was that Saddam was stranded in Heaven (which he certainly loathed), he could have been either kicked out or found a way back to Earth.

Korn's Groovy Pirate Ghost Mystery - S3-E10

Corrected entry: Why doesn't Kyle's Grandma's grave have a Star of David on it? The Brofloskis are Jewish.

Correction: Kyle's grandmother would not be a Broslofski by birth - her family may not have been Jewish.

Show generally

Corrected entry: After the episodes "Cartman's mom is a dirty slut" and "Cartman's mom is still a dirty slut," in which we find out that Cartman's mom is actually his father and his mother is yet to be found, Cartman's mom is still always mentioned as Cartman's mom even when the kids say Cartman has no mom, and also they say he has no dad.

Sol Parker

Correction: They call her "Cartman's mom" out of habit.

Xofer

Show generally

Corrected entry: The American flag in front of the school has an incorrect star formation.

Sol Parker

Correction: Almost certainly intentional.

Jared Has Aides - S6-E1

Corrected entry: Cartman said Jared got to eat all the sandwiches he wanted, but this is not true, he was on a pretty strict diet and only ate certain sandwiches.

Sol Parker

Correction: This is not a mistake because Cartman said it. For one, Cartman is stupid and gets things wrong all the time. In addition, many people in real life make the same mistake because no one pays attention to the diet information in the commercials, just the fact that he lost weight by eating Subway.

Professor Chaos - S6-E6

Corrected entry: When the boys are at the amusement park with all their potential new friends, Ike is with them, not only is Ike Kyle's little brother who is in kindergarten, not 4th grade like all the other kids, but Kyle is always trying to get rid of Ike. Why would Ike be in competition to be one of the friends?

Sol Parker

Correction: Since Ike is always following Kyle around, he obviously wants to be one of the boys. Kyle probably let Ike enter the contest just to get his entry fee, with no real intention of letting Ike make the final 10.

The Last of the Meheecans - S15-E9

Corrected entry: As the boys play "Texans vs Mexicans" (a parody of the US-Mexican border and Border Wars), Cartman becomes irritated when Stan and Token pass the border. He climbs off the platform to reprimand both Clyde and Craig for not paying attention. In the next scene when Jimmy passes the border, Cartman is shown twice, on the ground and on the platform.

Correction: Cartman can only be seen on the ground. There's two other kids on the platform, but neither are Cartman.

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)
