South Park

When South Park debuted in late 1997, Trey Parker and Matt Stone originally selected FOX to broadcast their show, however, FOX was not interested in the show, and denied the offer. Parker and Stone went to Comedy Central where they accepted the show and with it being one of their most popular, yet controversial, shows. Despite the criticism Comedy Central received, South Park is still on the air, currently in its 23rd season. Comedy Central is known for South Park and it is considered their trademark cartoon comedy show. Trey Parker and Matt Stone, the creators of South Park, write, direct, and voice a majority of the characters in each episode they produce on a weekly basis during the regular season.


  • In the Season One episode, "Death", the TV station the parents protest against is called 'Cartoon Central,' an obvious parody of Comedy Central. Comedy Central also refused to show an image of Muhammad in "Cartoon Wars Part II", and again in "201".
  • The Season 3 episode "Jakovasaurs" features a fictional show about Jakov and his family on Comedy Central, complete with slapstick humor and laugh tracks.
