Mandy was part of the South Park Elementary cheerleader squad (with Bebe, Red, Annie, Heidi, and Esther) in "Douche and Turd", her only appearance to date. She had wavy dark brown hair, and wore braces that caused her to speak in a lispy manner, similar to Shelly Marsh.


Main article: Nancy

Nancy, who appeared in "Up The Down Steroid", was Jimmy's girlfriend. The two had met in free period the week before and had been going out since, though their relationship became strained when Jimmy continued taking steroids and working out. When she told him she planned to leave him, he went into a rage and severely beat her with his crutches. She was last shown in the audience, smiling as Jimmy handed back his medal. Their relationship seems to have not lasted beyond the episode, as no reference was made to Jimmy having a girlfriend in "Erection Day".

Nancy had short black hair, held back with a teal headband, and dressed in a more 'mature' manner than the other girls, wearing makeup and a navel ring (unusual for her young age), as well as a midriff-baring black shirt with yellow stripes running down the sleeves, and a pair of teal pants (also with yellow stripes

Ms. Claridge

Main article: Miss Claridge
Ms. Claridge

Ms. Claridge is a South Park Elementary pre-school teacher. Her first appearance was in Pre-School. Ms. Claridge was disabled and covered in burns after a fire broke out in the pre-school classroom at South Park Elementary. The fire was started when Stan, Kyle, Cartman and Kenny wanted to play "fireman" and asked the "baddest kid in pre-school," Trent Boyett, to start a fire for them. In spite of the boys' efforts to extinguish the fire (by urinating on it), the fire grew out of control and nearly killed Ms. Claridge. Ms. Claridge survived, but was badly injured and placed on a modern chair which very much resembles that of Capt. Christopher Pike in the original Star Trek episode "The Menagerie". She can't speak, and can only communicate by activating the lights and beeps on her wheelchair. If it lights and beeps once it means "yes" and twice means "no." It is not clear how she can function as a teacher if she can only communicate "yes" and "no."

The boys denied all culpability for the fire and Trent Boyett was sent to Juvenile Hall for 5 years. One day, Ms. Claridge's wheelchair ran out of power in the middle of the road where the boys found her. Seeking to escape Trent Boyett who has been released from Juvenile Hall, they appeal to Stan's older sister Shelly for protection. Shelly agrees, but only if the boys confess to Ms. Claridge their role in the fire. As the boys start to confess to her, Trent Boyett arrives and confronts the boys. Cartman tries to stop him with his mother's taser gun but it accidentally shoots Ms. Claridge. It powers her wheelchair which spins out of control and crashes into a propane shop which blows up and sets her on fire. After crashing into a pet shop and getting attacked by cats, she hits a fire hydrant putting the flames out. The police arrive and ask if Trent started the fire. She replies "no" with 2 beeps but the police mistake it for "yes yes" and arrest Trent. Ms. Claridge appears briefly in 2 other episodes, "The Death of Eric Cartman", where Cartman, in his efforts to atone for his life's misdeeds, gives her a fruit basket and "Erection Day" where she could be seen watching Jimmy perform his stand up comedy.
