Weight Gain 4000 - S1-E3

Corrected entry: When the kids are rehearsing the play, the crowd only appears when Mr. Garrison says "To hell with Kathy Lee Gifford." The crowd is nowhere to be seen before then. (00:11:00)

Sol Parker

Correction: The crowd's immediate appearance in the scene is not sudden. The crowd is first shown on screen after Mr. Garrison says "To hell with Kathy Lee Gifford". Before this point, the last time an angle from in front of the stage that the kids are rehearsing the play on is about 25 seconds before the crowd's "sudden appearance", in the shot where the kids playing the attackers invade the Indian land. This twenty five second gap would give the crowd ample time to get to a closer view of the stage whilst the kids were rehearsing.

Casual Person

Weight Gain 4000 - S1-E3

Corrected entry: When Cartman eats the "Weight Gain 4000," he not only gets fatter, but taller as well. (00:21:00)

Sol Parker

Correction: Cartman's height growth was purposefully done as part of the visual joke to show how his weight gain has exaggeratedly affected his body. The effects are not supposed to be done in a scientifically accurate manner, but done more to show the audience how ineffective Cartman's attempts at getting into shape had become through a visual medium, without resorting to any sort of needless exposition.

Casual Person

Big Gay Al's Big Gay Boat Ride - S1-E4

Corrected entry: During the football game, the announcer says "And the ball is passed to 23 Kenny McCormick." But Kenny's number is actually 13.

Correction: A character mistake on the part of the announcer.

Cartman Gets an Anal Probe - S1-E1

Corrected entry: The kid that Cartman sets on fire is Pip. Just something to notice.

Correction: This is not trivia, rather an obvious observation.

Pink Eye - S1-E7

Corrected entry: When Kyle cuts Kenny in half, there is a skull behind him, how did the zombie head become nothing but a skull so fast, it was only cut off seconds ago.

Sol Parker

Correction: Considering that it was Halloween night, that skull probably isn't real and was placed in the cemetery as a prop for the holiday.

Death - S1-E6

Corrected entry: When Death is watching Terrance and Phillip, they are wearing astronaut suits with the American Flag on them. But since Terrance and Phillip are Canadian, shouldn't the Canadian Flag be present on their suits instead of the American one?

Correction: Not if they are doing a skit show where they play the part of American astronauts. They are comedians, after all.


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.

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.


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)
