Paul Watson is a Canadian animal rights activist. He appeared in the episode "Whale Whores", as a captain of the ship called the "Sea Shepherd" fighting against Japanese killing dolphins and whales. He hosts his own television show called Whale Wars.
Mocking his controversial methods of lying to his audience, Watson is depicted as an idiotic glory-hound in search of getting attention for his show in the most pathetic means possible. When faced with an actual Japanese whaling ship, he suggests that they beat themselves up, in order to lie about being attacked. He also suggests that the crew throw rancid butter at the Japanese ship. After the butter is thrown, Watson is killed when a harpoon, shot from the Japanese ship, goes through his head, pinning him to the wall. This caused Stan to step up and take over command of the ship. Stan then shoots the Japanese boat's fuel supply with a flare gun, thus blowing it up and causing it to sink. Stan's more proactive approach to anti-whaling made him a more popular TV persona than Paul Watson.
Paul Watson is grossly overweight. He wears olive colored cargo pants, black boots, a black belt, and a black hoodie sweater with a white skull design. He has white hair and a white mustache. Due to his weight, his blood flow is inhibited, causing redness on his nose and cheeks.
Despite being a Canadian, he was not depicted like other Canadians in South Park. Instead of having an egg-shaped flapping head like, for example Ike Broflovski, he is fully defined with a normal head. The same applies to Tom Green, Alanis Morrisette, "Star Wars Kid", and Justin Bieber.
