  • Details
This crass animated series started as a potty-mouthed response to sitcoms that portrayed children as angelic figures, but evolved into one of television's most effective satires, joyfully skewering cultural trends, celebrities and political figures.

Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that South Park is an animated satirical series that isn't meant for young kids. There are lots of mature themes, swearing, over-the-top cartoon violence, potty humor, and innuendo. People of every race, class, gender, religion, profession, and credo are parodied, and racial and religious slurs, stereotypes, and other politically incorrect content is frequently used to offer social commentary. One of the main characters dies in almost every episode. (Note: Episodes aired in syndication have been edited for content to meet network broadcasting standards.)

Sexual Content

Sexual innuendo frequent; endless jokes about hermaphrodites, homosexuality, promiscuity, and pedophilia. Lots of bare butts.


Over-the-top cartoon violence is more gross than scary. The same character dies in almost every episode, often brutally.


"Hell," "damn," "crap," "s--t." Racist, homophobic, and antireligious slurs frequent.

Social Behavior

The show uses parody and gross-out humor to address semi-serious issues. Stereotypes frequent.


Parodies products such as iPads and other brands, including Chipotle and Starbucks.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Drug use (illegal and prescription) and alcohol are sometimes portrayed in a negative light.
