Plot details follow.


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 fare over well with Kyle and Chef.


The MIR Space Station crashes onto Kenny 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, the coroner's bottle of Worcestershire sauce falls into the embalming fluid and turns Kenny into a zombie. He breaks out of the morgue, biting the two 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. 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.
  • Kenny is mistaken as a celebrity.

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, because he is now forced to go around as Raggedy Andy all day long for no reason.

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 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. 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.

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 though 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.
