South Park is an American sitcom created by Trey Parker and Matt Stone. The series is about 4 boys-Kyle, Stan, Cartman and Kenny, who live in a small town called South Park. The show usually satires topics that a lot of people would consider "Taboo" such as religion, politics, sexuality, drugs among many others. The show also parodies a lot of celebreties.
The characters themselves have a lot of personality, and I think that's what makes this show so appealing . Cartman is the most manipulative, selfish, greedy character ever created. He's always making fun of Kyle because he's Jewish and of Kenny because he's poor, and did I mention he hates hippies and "midgets". But what I like most about the show, apart from the excellent combination of personalities is the fact that the characters are children and no matter what they say, and no matter how bad it is, its only a child who is saying it, and I think that's how Parker and Stone get away with most of things they put on the show, and also it makes it a lot funnier.
