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 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.
