Adolf Hitler was the leader of the Nazi Party (Nationalist Socialist German Worker's Party) and Chancellor of Germany from 1933 until 1945, and also acquired the powers of the president of Germany in 1934. He is notable in South Park for being among the idols of Eric Cartman, who tries to emulate his strong speaking style as well as his efforts to exterminate the Jewish people. He first appears briefly in the Season One episode "Pinkeye".

Background

When Cartman is suggesting he will be famous in "Weight Gain 4000", Wendy Testaburger makes a brief, but degrading, comment that Hitler was famous as well.

In "Pinkeye", Cartman dresses as Hitler for Halloween, with a costume made by his mother. He wasn't aware of Hitler's real self until Principal Victoria showed him a video of Hitler, during which he begins emulating his speech patterns, beginning his idolization that later became a focal point of his characterization in later seasons.

Hitler next appeared as a resident of Hell in South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut, harassing Kenny McCormick upon his entrance. He appears similarly in "Mr. Hankey's Christmas Classics", sadly singing "O Tannenbaum" and lamenting his love of Christmas, resulting in Satan throwing a Christmas party in Hell and giving Hitler a Christmas tree of his own. He can still be seen there briefly in "Do the Handicapped Go to Hell?".

He does not appear in "The Passion of the Jew"; however, Cartman dresses like him when he leads his followers on a march through the streets of the town.

Hitler briefly appears dressed as the "Can You Hear Me Now?" Verizon spokesperson at Satan's party in the episode "Hell on Earth 2006", getting in the way of Satan's big arrival. Unlike many of his earlier appearances, in which his head was a photo of the real Hitler, he is completely animated in this episode.

Appearance

Hitler is was shown in a black suit in "Mr. Hankey's Christmas Classics". In "Hell on Earth 2006", he was shown in a Halloween costume wearing glasses, light gray pants, and a dark gray jacket with South Park's version of the Verizon logo in the left shoulder area.

Trivia

  • In many of his earlier appearances, he was depicted with a real picture of him pasted on a body. This was later changed in "Hell on Earth 2006", where he is given a typical South Park style face.
    • However, in "Pinkeye", the video Principal Victoria shows to Cartman portrays him with a circular, animated head as opposed to a photographic head, making him closely resemble Bob Johnson.
  • His mother, introduced in "Mr. Hankey's Christmas Classics", bears a striking resemblance to Sarah Valmer.
