==Synopsis==

Trick-or-treat in [[South Park (Location)|South Park]] is interrupted by an outbreak of [[Pinkeye (Virus)|pinkeye]]. While [[Stan Marsh|Stan]], [[Kyle Broflovski|Kyle]] and [[Eric Cartman|Cartman]] are getting themselves ready for [[South Park Elementary|the school]]'s Halloween party and costume contest, a mishap at the morgue transforms the residents of South Park into brain-eating zombies. The kids have to save the day before they can get down to the business of getting candy.
The MIR Space Station crashes on top of Kenny the day before Halloween. A fluke accident involving Worcestershire sauce at the morgue turns Kenny into a zombie, causing most of the town to eventually turn into zombies as well.
 
 
The rest of the boys are too busy preparing for Halloween and the big costume contest to realize that Kenny is a zombie, but end up saving the day anyway.
 
 
[[Cartman]]'s Halloween costumes don't fair over well with [[Kyle]] and [[Chef]].

{{spoiler}}The [[MIR Space Station]] crashes on [[Kenny McCormick]] at the bus stop on October 30, killing him. He is taken to the morgue where he is drained and filled with embalming fluid. However, one of the two coroner's bottle of [[Limey Charles Worcestershire Sauce|Worcestershire sauce]] falls into the embalming fluid, contaminating it and turns Kenny into a zombie. He breaks out of the morgue, biting the coroners on his way out.

The next morning, [[Kenny McCormick|Kenny]] shows up at the [[Bus Stop|bus stop]] as normal while the boys are waiting to go to school, oblivious that he is a zombie. Each boy is dressed up for the costume contest at school (For which the top prize is two tons of candy).
 
The next morning, Kenny shows up at the [[Bus Stop|bus stop]] as normal while the boys are waiting to go to school. Each boy is dressed up for the costume contest at school (for which the top prize is two tons of candy).
 
* [[Stan]] is dressed up as Raggedy Andy
 
** [[Wendy]] is supposed to dress as companion Raggedy Ann, making them a shoe-in for the candy.
 
* [[Kyle]] has on a store bought Chewbacca costume.
 
* [[Cartman]] is dressed in a Hitler costume his mom made him.
 
At the local doctor’s office, the morgue workers have apparently turned into zombies, however the doctor diagnoses it as pink eye.
 
 
The kids arrive at school only to discover everyone in the class, including [[Mr. Hat]] and Wendy, have dressed as Chewbacca save [[Mr. Garrison]] who is dressed as Marilyn Monroe. Seeing Wendy as Chewbacca angers Stan, who is now forced to go around as Raggedy Andy all day long.
 
 
Meanwhile, at the Cartman house, Eric’s mom decorates the house and yard for Halloween, completely oblivious to the zombies attacking people on the street.
 
 
Back at school Kyle, disgruntled that he has the same costume as everyone else, decides to work up a new costume for the contest while Principal Victoria and Chef are upset over Cartman’s costume. [[Principal Victoria]] makes Eric a ghost costume to amend the problem (however it ends up looking like a Klu Klux Klan robe instead). Meanwhile, Kenny attacks and bites [[Clyde]] when he walks past him.
 
 
Kyle arrives at the costume contest in the gym with a new costume, a working model of the solar system, but Wendy’s Chewbacca costumes earns her first place and the two tons of candy (which she promptly gives to starving children in [[Wikipedia:Nairobi|Nairobi]]). The judge awards gives Kenny second place for his "Edward James Olmos" costume (his zombie state) and Stan "worst costume ever" for his "stupid clown thingie". As Mr. Garrison says "Let's bob for stupid apples" zombie Clyde drowns [[Bebe]] who is bobbing for apples as the zombies run out of control.
 
 
Across South Park the zombies continue to attack, although everyone still believes it is simply pink eye. As night falls on South Park the boys prepare to go trick-or-treating, with Kyle now dressed as Count Dracula, just as [[Chef]] realizes that the pink eye epidemic is actually a wave of the living dead. Wendy tries to apologize for humiliating Stan, but Stan rejects her. Wendy herself is later turned into a zombie.
 
 
Chef goes to the doctor seeking help and attempts to explain what’s going on, but the doctor doesn't believe him. Chef leaves (and the doctor is eaten by zombies) for the Mayor's office to warn her and [[Officer Barbrady]] (who are up to something kinky), but they don't believe him either.
 
 
As the zombies continue to ravage the town, the boys, also oblivious of the zombies, head off to go trick-or-treating. However, Kenny keeps biting everyone before they can get any treats, so the boys ditch him on the way to Chef’s house. Chef pulls the boys inside and after some discussion head to the morgue to get to the bottom of the zombie matter.
 
 
[[Image:Southpark ep107 2.jpg|150px|thumb|left|Chef (and the other zombies) as Michael Jackson dancing to '''Thriller''']]
 
While at the morgue they discover the bottle of Worcestershire sauce as well as an issue of "Crack Whore Monthly" magazine with a picture of Cartman's mom on the cover. The zombies (led by a zombie version of [[Pip]]) eventually find a way into the morgue and turn Chef into a zombie (who then goes into Michael Jackson's '''Thriller''' mode). The zombies then pursue the boys, who are forced to fight them off (except [[Chef]], who is busy reading "Crack Whore Monthly"). Through the commotion, Kyle calls the hotline number on the bottle of Worcestershire sauce for assistance. He is put through to the hotline number's offices.
 
 
The hotline operator tells Kyle "not to kill zombies willy nilly", but to kill the original zombie (Kenny) in order to turn all the other zombies back into humans. As zombie Wendy heads towards Stan he can't bring himself to kill her, but she is returned to normal when Kyle quickly cuts Kenny in half with a chainsaw. All around them the dead limbs of the towns people begin to turn back to normal flesh ones.
 
 
Cartman cries at Kenny's grave while with Stan and Kyle. He then stops and Stan and Kyle say they're going to Cartman's house to find more naughty pictures of his mom. To which Cartman response by saying is mom was young and needed the money even thought they came out a month ago.
 
 
Kenny suddenly comes out of his grave but a statue from another grave crushes him, then a jet smashes into it.
 
 
==Kenny's Death==
 
 
Kenny dies a total of three times in this episode, depending on the definition of death.
 
# Crushed by Mir; revived as a zombie via Worcestershire sauce
 
# Cut in half by Kyle to end the zombie curse
 
# Kenny rises from the dead only to be crushed by a statue and crashed into by a plane
 
 
==Critics==
 
On the October 31st 1997, Trey Parker and Matt Stone released new SP episode Pinkeye. Roger Ebert made a note comment to this episode:
 
 
:"''What's happened to the cartoon world today? I saw this episode for several times and all i can tell is that the worst episode ever was aired. Do not watch this episode. This episode is so sucked that even Beavis and Butt-Head seems to be better. This episode sucked the most. People watching it and waste theirs food out of mouth. South Park is crap'er than Luc Besson's Classics, respectively.''"
 
 
Trey Parker, re-mentioned this comment, saying that Roger Ebert ate a lot of meal in McDonalds or Johny Rocket's restaurant before he wrote and published this issue to the Newspaper. This will later be mentioned in the episode [[Roger Ebert Should Lay Off the Fatty Foods]] of South Park.
 
 
==Zombies==
 
 
Zombies of the following South Park regulars were shown:
 
* Kenny- Kenny is the original zombie. He was the first after the MIR space station landed on him. At the morgue Worcestshire Sauce poured into the enbalming fluid causing him to awake.
 
* Chef- Chef was caught by zombies and sung a song to the Thriller tune, with him acting as Michael Jackson. He turned back to normal when the curse was gone.
 
* Clyde- Kenny bit Clyde after he walked past. Clyde transformed during the costume contest and drowned Bebe while she bobbed for apples.
 
* Pip- Pip was caught by zombies and shown breaking into the morgue.
 
* Wendy- After Wendy was left behind by Stan zombies emerged from the trees and killed her. Later she appeared as a zombie. Cartman tried to get Stan to kill her saying how she ditched him at the costume contest but he couldn't bring himself to do it. She turned back to normal when the curse was broken.
 
[[File:X_acdf5f2f.jpg|thumb|press the image to see what is meaning]]
 
==Trivia==
 
 
* This episode features the news reporter [[Midget Wearing Bikini]]. He returned in the same role in the movie '''South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut'''.
 
* In the scene where Chef is watching the news in his house, a poster of Isaac Hayes (the voice of Chef) can be seen.
 
* In the final scene, a tombstone statue of Orgazmo can be seen in the background.
 
* "The entire Zombie aspect of this episode is an homage to the movie '''Return of the Living Dead'''. Everything from the doctors describing the zombies symptoms to the emergency hotline number on the "embalming fluid" container is a throwback to the plotline of '''Return of the Living Dead'''.
 
* The "Russian" spoken by the cosmonauts on Mir is in fact vaguely Russian-sounding gibberish. Similarly, Hitler's speech in the video shown to Cartman is a meaningless string of actual German (and some made-up) words. One section sounds vaguely like German for "you have lovely breasts," although this may be unintentional. When Cartman imagines himself as Hitler, his speech is actually made up of backwards English phrases (including "You guys" and "Seriously, you don't know shit") and some more made-up German, ending with the phrase "God-damn it!"
 
* This is the episode in-which Kenny dies the most. Three times.
 
* After Kenny dies and becomes a zombie he never made any attempts to eat Stan, Kyle or Cartman, not even when the boys insult him but was quick enough to jump at Clyde and the people answering the doors where the boys went trick-or-treating. Funny enough right after Wendy becomes a zombie she didn't show the same kind of commitment.
 
* In a later series on another Halloween episode, Wendy won another costume contest with her chewbacca costume.
 
* After getting unhappy with Cartman's Hitler outfit, Principle Victoria gives him a new costume which ends up looking like the cloak a KKK&nbsp;member wears, but only Chef seems to notice it (and even runs from him at first).
 
* When knocking on one house, some members of the KKK answer the door and Cartman replies ''Hey! They're all dressed up like ghosts too' assuming he didn't know who or what the KKK&nbsp;were then.''
 
* When the Midget in a Bikini is reporting on top of a building you can see [[Jimbo Kern]] and [[Ned]] with a rocket launcher.
 
 
== Pop-Culture/Historical References ==
 
 
 
*The space station that deorbits and crashes on Kenny at the beginning of the episode is the space station [[Wikipedia:Mir_Space_Station|Mir]]. The Mir station was developed by the former Soviet Union, and launched into orbit in 1988. It was a research station, it eventually deorbited in the year 2000. At the time this episode originally aired, the Mir space station had two accidents. In February of 1996 the station had a fire on board, and later that year June it was involved with a collision with an unmanned space craft.
 
* One of the morgue attendants put [[Wikipedia:Worcestershire sauce|Worcestershire sauce]] on everything. Worcestershire sauce was invented 1837 by two British dispensing chemists John Wheeley Lea and William Henry Perrins.
 
* Kyle, Wendy and various other children in this episode are dressed up in [[Wikipedia:Chewbacca|Chewbacca]], who is a character from the [[Wikipedia:Star Wars|Star Wars]] films.
 
* Stan and Wendy were originally going to dress up as [[Wikipedia:Raggedy Ann|Raggedy Ann and Andy]], two character from popular children stories written by Johnny Gruelle.
 
* Cartman is dressed up as [[Wikipedia:Adolf Hitler|Adolf Hitler]], the leader of the Nazi party during World War II.
 
* Cartman mockingly calls Stan [[Wikipedia:Howdy Doody|Howdy Doody]] and [[Wikipedia:Holly Hobby|Holly Hobby]]. Howdy Doody was a freckled marionette and star of a childrens television series of the same name which aired from 1947-1960. Holly Hobby is a fictional character created by an artist of the same name. In the 1970's Holly Hobby became popular when featured on American Greetings brand greeting cards.
 
* South Park's doctor believes that the morticians and everyone infected with the zombie virus have pink eye. Pinkeye's official medical term is [[Wikipedia:Conjunctivitis|Conjunctivitis]]&nbsp;([[Pinkeye | Latin spelling for russian]] ''коньюктивитис)'', with any other bacterial infection there are various causes, types of infections, and treatments.
 
* Mr. Garrison is dressed up like [[Wikipedia:Marilyn Monroe|Marilyn Monroe]], who was a famous American actress, model, and sex symbol before her death in 1962.
 
* Cartman mistakenly believes that [[Wikipedia:Wookies]] like Chewbacca live on the [[Wikipedia:Endor (Star Wars)|Endor]]. In Star Wars mythology the teddy-bear like [[Wikipedia:Ewoks|Ewoks]] live on the moon known as Endor. Wookies live on the planet [[Wikipedia:Kashyyyk|Kashyyyk]]. The confusion is a reference to the notorious [[Wikipedia:The Star Wars Holiday Special|Star Wars Holiday Special]] a Star Wars themed Christmas special produced in 1978. The special is centered around Chewbacca and his family, who are depicted as living in a tree-house similar to those built by the Ewoks.
 
* Mr. Garrison teachers the class about "horror writer" [[Wikipedia:Jackie Collins|Jackie Collins]]. Collins, a novelist, in reality doesn't write horror novels, is a New York Times bestselling author who is known for her overtly sexual romance novels, such as '''The World Is Full Of Married Men''' he first novel which was published in 1968.
 
* Mrs. Garrison's Halloween decorations include a poster of [[Wikipedia:Richard Nixon|Richard Nixon]], the 37th President of the United States. He was president for two terms between 1969 and 1974. He was most famous for his involvement in the Watergate Scandal.
 
* The zombies make comments about eating brains, this cliché of the zombie movie genre was first established in the film [[Wikipedia:Return of the Living Dead|Return of the Living Dead]]. This episode also parodies and uses common elements from the same film.
 
* Chef is dressed up like motorcycle stuntman [[Wikipedia:Evel Knievel|Evel Knievel]], Principal Victoria erroneously thinks that it's a costume of musician [[Wikipedia:Elvis Presley|Elvis Presley]]. Later in his career Elvis was known for wearing garish outfits that were slightly similar to Knievel's.
 
* When Principal Victoria makes Cartman a "scary" ghost costume out of a white sheet, it looks suspiciously white robes worn by members of the [[Wikipedia:Ku Klux Klan|Ku Klux Klan]] an American white-supremacy group that was founded in 1865.
 
* In principal Victoria's office there is a poster about "Puffy the Bear" which is a parody of fire safety mascot [[Wikipedia:Smokey the Bear|Smokey the Bear]]. She also has a picture of [[Wikipedia:Kathy Lee Gifford|Kathy Lee Gifford]] on her shelf.
 
* Kyle later changes his costume to that of [[Wikipedia:Solar System|Earth's Solar System]]. It's interesting to note that Kyle's costume includes nine planets, the ninth being [[Wikipedia:Pluto|Pluto]] which was classified as a planet until 2006, when scientist redefined the definition of what a planet was.
 
* The children's Halloween costume contest is judged by actress [[Wikipedia:Tina Yothers|Tina Yothers]], who was most well known for her role of Jennifer Keaton on the sitcom [[Wikipedia:Family Ties|Family Ties]]. Many people in South Park believe that Tina Yothers is supposed to be dead, in reality, Yothers is still alive and well, and has last been seen on VH1's Celebrity Fit Club in 2006.
 
* Mr. Garrison mistakenly believes the zombified corpse of Kenny to be a costume patterned after [[Wikipedia:Edward James Olmos|Edward James Olmos]], an actor who's most well known for his role of Gaff in the film Blade Runner.
 
* There is a poster of naked women on the wall in Chef's house, this poster looks very similar to one featured in [[Wikipedia:Stanley Kubrick|Stanley Kubrick's]] 1980 adaptation of the [[Wikipedia:Stephen King|Stephen King]] novel [[Wikipedia:The Shining (film)|The Shining]]. The poster can be seen hanging on the wall in the home owned by the character Dick Halloran (played by [[Wikipedia:Scatman Crothers|Scatman Crothers]].)
 
* When once again making fun of Stan's costume, Cartman calls him [[Wikipedia:Pippi Longstocking|Pippi Longstocking]], a fictional character created by Swedish author [[Wikipedia:Astrid Lindgren|Astrid Lindgren]].
 
* Wendy sends all the candy she won to starving children in [[Wikipedia:Nairobi|Nairobi]], which is the capital city of [[Wikipedia:Kenya|Kenya]] in [[Wikipedia:Africa|Africa]]. While places in Africa are commonly associated as third world and impoverished, the city of Nairobi is actually a well developed city.
 
* Officer Barbrady and the mayor's lewd sex act supposedly has nothing to do with the "Japanese Mafia". This is a reference to the [[Wikipedia:Yakuza|Yakuza]], which is the traditional name for the original organized crime families in Japan. What the Yakuza could actually hope to gain from the spectacle Chef walks in on is anyone's guess.
 
* The fat man handing out candy is ironically wearing a shirt that says "Let's Get Physical". The phrase is from the song [[Wikipedia:Physical (Olivia Newton-John song)|Physical]] a 1981 song written by Steve Kipner and Terry Shaddick and performed by Olivia Newton-John. The music video for the song featured a lot of over-weight men exercising.
 
* When the boys trick-or-treat at Chef's house, Chef almost cuts them up with two chainsaws. The chainsaw is the clichéd weapon of choice for killing zombies, made popular by the 1981 cult classic [[Wikipedia:The Evil Dead|The Evil Dead]].
 
* When Chef is turned into a zombie, he becomes a parody of [[Wikipedia:Michael Jackson|Michael Jackson]] in the music video of the 1984 song [[Wikipedia:Thriller (song)|Thriller]]. Chef also sings a song that sounds similar to the Jackson song, as well as gets into a choreographed dance routine with other zombies, just like in the video.
 
* At the end of the song when Chef pulls open his shirt and shouts "OOOOOOOOH!" Is another reference to Michael Jackson, however was something that Jackson did in the music video for his 1991 song [[Wikipedia:Black or White|Black or White]]. The end of the video featured Jackson doing this same move.
 
* According to the Worcestershire sauce hot-line, to cure people of being zombies you have to kill the original zombie. This is actually more common with Vampire mythology as opposed to zombie lore.
 
* One of the tomb stones in the cemetery where Kenny is buried has a statue of [[Wikipedia:Orgazmo|Orgazmo]] the super-hero character from the film of the same name.
 
 
==Hidden Visitor(s)==
 
 
Three visitors can be found in this episode
 
 
*At the morgue a miniature visitor is seen in a jar.
 
*Another visitor can be seen when [[Liane Cartman]] is decorating the house.
 
*It is seen back at the morgue, on a calendar.

== Facts about the episode ==
+
Cartman cries at [[Kenny McCormick|Kenny]]'s grave while with [[Stan Marsh|Stan]] and [[Kyle Broflovski|Kyle]]. However, he then stops leaves to count his candy. Stan and Kyle follow him, saying they are all going to his house to find more naughty pictures of his mom. Cartman defends her by saying his mom was young and needed the money, even though the pictures came out a month ago. After they leave, Kenny comes out of his grave all stitched up but a statue from another tombstone crushes him, then a jet smashes into it.
This episode was noted as the worst episode of South Park 10 years ago. For now, it is the episode Hell On Earth 2006, another haloween special. But the last one is the worst accroding by the fans' votes. So then, Pinkeye stated as the worst episode ever.

Plot details follow.

The MIR Space Station crashes on Kenny McCormick at the bus stop on October 30, killing him. He is taken to the morgue where he is drained and filled with embalming fluid. However, one of the two coroner's bottle of Worcestershire sauce falls into the embalming fluid, contaminating it and turns Kenny into a zombie. He breaks out of the morgue, biting the coroners on his way out.

The next morning, Kenny shows up at the bus stop as normal while the boys are waiting to go to school, oblivious that he is a zombie. Each boy is dressed up for the costume contest at school (For which the top prize is two tons of candy).

  • Stan Marsh is dressed up as Raggedy Andy.
    • Wendy Testaburger is supposed to dress as the companion Raggedy Ann, making them a shoe-in for the candy. However, she dresses as Chewbacca.
  • Kyle has on a store bought Chewbacca costume.
  • Cartman is dressed in a Adolf Hitler costume his mom made him.
  • Kenny is mistaken as a celebrity.

At the local doctor’s office, the morgue workers are beginning to turn into zombies, however the doctor diagnoses it as pink eye.

The kids arrive at school only to discover everyone in the class, including Mr. Hat and Wendy, have dressed as Chewbacca save for Mr. Garrison who is dressed as Marilyn Monroe. Seeing Wendy as Chewbacca angers Stan, because he is now forced to go around as Raggedy Andy all day long for no reason, much to his humiliation.

Meanwhile, at the Cartman house, Eric’s mom decorates the house and yard for Halloween, including putting a poster of Richard Nixon, completely and happily oblivious to the zombies attacking people on the street.

Back at school Kyle, disgruntled that he has the same costume as everyone else, decides to work up a new costume for the contest while Principal Victoria and Chef are upset over Cartman’s costume. Principal Victoria makes Eric a ghost costume to amend the problem (however it ends up looking like a Ku Klux Klan robe instead). Meanwhile, Kenny attacks and bites Clyde when he walks past him.

Kyle arrives at the costume contest in the gym with a new costume, a working model of the solar system, but Wendy’s Chewbacca costumes earns her first place and the two tons of candy (which she promptly gives to starving children in Nairobi). The judge awards gives Kenny second place for his "Edward James Olmos" costume (his zombie state) and Stan "worst costume ever" for his "stupid clown thing". As Mr. Garrison says "Let's bob for stupid apples", zombie Clyde drowns Bebe who is bobbing for apples as the zombies run out of control.

Across South Park the zombies continue to attack, although everyone still believes it is simply pink eye. As night falls on South Park the boys prepare to go trick-or-treating, with Kyle now dressed as Count Dracula, just as Chef realizes that the pink eye epidemic is actually a wave of the living dead. Wendy tries to apologize for humiliating Stan, but Stan rejects her.

Chef goes to the doctor seeking help and attempts to explain what’s going on, but the doctor doesn't believe him. Suddenly, zombies break into the clinic, forcing Chef to escape out the window but the doctor gets eaten. Chef arrives for the Mayor's office to warn her and Officer Barbrady (who are up to something kinky and corrupt involving money), but they do not believe him either. As the zombies continue to ravage the town, the boys, also oblivious of the zombies, head off to go trick-or-treating. However, Kenny keeps biting everyone before they can get any treats, so the boys ditch him on the way to Chef’s house. Chef pulls the boys inside and after some discussion head to the morgue to get to the bottom of the zombie matter.

While at the morgue they discover the bottle of Worcestershire sauce as well as an issue of "Crack Whore Monthly" magazine with a picture of Cartman's mom on the cover. The zombies (led by a zombie version of Pip) eventually find a way into the morgue and turn Chef into a zombie (who then goes into Michael Jackson's Thriller mode). The zombies then pursue the boys, who are forced to fight them off their chainsaws (except Chef, who is busy reading "Crack Whore Monthly"). Through the commotion, Kyle calls the hotline number on the bottle of Worcestershire sauce for assistance. He is connected to a British operator who tells Kyle "not to kill zombies willy nilly", but to kill the original zombie (Kenny) in order to turn all the other zombies back into humans. Wendy arrives as a zombie and lurches towards Stan he can't bring himself to kill her. She is returned to normal when Kyle quickly cuts Kenny in half with a chainsaw, killing him. All around them the dead limbs of the townspeople begin to turn back to normal flesh ones, but all the living zombies than return to their original human form.

Cartman cries at Kenny's grave while with Stan and Kyle. However, he then stops leaves to count his candy. Stan and Kyle follow him, saying they are all going to his house to find more naughty pictures of his mom. Cartman defends her by saying his mom was young and needed the money, even though the pictures came out a month ago. After they leave, Kenny comes out of his grave all stitched up but a statue from another tombstone crushes him, then a jet smashes into it.
