Osama Bin Laden Has Farty Pants - S5-E9

Corrected entry: When Osama is holding the dynamite, the light is at the end of the fuse, yet about 3 seconds after the guards surround him it explodes.

Correction: After Osama says "Uh-oh" and he and the guards scream, the fuse begins to burn down to the dynamite. The dynamite explodes as it should.

Casual Person

Cartmanland - S5-E6

Corrected entry: When Cartman goes to buy North Park Funland, he tells the owner that he is buying the theme park to keep people out so that only he can ride the rides. But wouldn't it have been better if Cartman had just told the owner to only let him enter the park, and given the owner the $1 million in order to pay for the staff and all the necessities like food, maintenance etc?

Correction: Maybe, but it's his choice to buy the park if he wants to.


Scott Tenorman Must Die - S5-E4

Corrected entry: When Cartman goes over to taste Scott's tears, he is almost as tall as Scott is sitting. We all know Cartman is not that tall, what is he standing on?

Sol Parker

Correction: Cartman was sitting/leaning across the table.

Cripple Fight - S5-E2

Corrected entry: When Cartman walks into the Church to yell "Cripple Fight," Kyle's family, which is Jewish, is in the church.

Correction: I've already corrected this once and it is back with no changes: There could be many reasons for a Jewish family to be in a church. It could have been "Friendship Day" and were someone's guests. They could have stopped in to see the Christian service.


The Super Best Friends - S5-E3

Corrected entry: When everyone is in Washington, Jesus instructs the Mormon leader to freeze the water to stop the suicides. In the next shot of the water, it's liquid again.

Correction: Well the narrator did say that it was "later at the exact same location" in the shot after it was turned to ice, so it was obviously after the ice had melted.

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.


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.

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.

gandolfs dad

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).


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)
