South Park Archives

The Cameraman is a minor character who appears frequently during the early seasons, who was introduced in the Season Two episode, "Cartman's Mom is Still a Dirty Slut".


During the early seasons, the character was always used as the only cameraman present in South Park, appearing alongside the town's only boom microphone operator. In later seasons, new varieties of cameramen and microphone operators were created, who eventually replaced the roles of both characters. Despite being introduced in Season Two, a prototype version of the character can be seen in "Weight Gain 4000".

In "Cartman's Mom is Still a Dirty Slut", he is seen as Sid Greenfield's cameraman for America's Most Wanted. While filming the reenactment of the program, he ends up getting stuck in the studio with the other people. Later, he and the others begin cannibalizing everyone on the production team to stay alive. He is one of the only people on the team to make it out of the building alive.

In "The Tooth Fairy Tats 2000", he is seen recording the fake reportage to catch those involved in the tooth trading business, though he claims the idea is stupid.

He made relatively minor appearances in post-Season Four episodes; in "Kenny Dies" he is seen recording Kenny McCormick's wishes at the hospital.

He appears in the Season Seventeen introduction in front of Photo Dojo, replacing the photographer, where he is seen taking a picture and later waving to the school bus.


The Cameraman has combed blonde hair and wears a long-sleeve green shirt under a brown vest and brown pants.
