John Travolta is an American actor and a practitioner of Scientology. He made his first appearance in the Season Five episode, "The Entity".



Travolta made his first appearance in "The Entity", as a celebrity endorser for Mr. Garrison's new transportation device called the IT. Travolta's more prominent appearance, however, was in the episode "Trapped in the Closet". After Stan Marsh was stated to be the re-incarnation of Scientology creator L. Ron Hubbard, Tom Cruise rushes to Stan's side in the hope that his acting pleased Hubbard. However, when informed that is acting is merely "okay", Cruise locks himself in Stan's closet and refuses to come out despite Stan, Randy, the police, and Nicole Kidman asking him to "come out the closet". Travolta, a fellow Scientologist, and friend of Cruise is asked to try and coax him out, Cruise instead invites him inside the closest. The two remain inside the closet along with R. Kelly, refusing to come out of the closest until Stan openly calls Scientology a scam. Travolta next appeared as his character, "Terl", from the film Battlefield Earth in "The Gauntlet", a parody of Gladiator created for the MTV Movie Awards. Travolta later appeared in "200", in which Tom Cruise and Rob Reiner lead all the celebrities who were ever insulted in South Park in a class-action lawsuit.
