Robert Smith is an English musician and the lead singer of the goth rock band, The Cure. He appears in the Season One episode, "Mecha-Streisand".

Background

He is called in to assist Leonard Maltin and Sidney Poitier in defeating Barbra Streisand, all of whom can transform into Japanese movie monsters. Smith turns himself into a giant moth and fights Mecha-Streisand with a sonic scream and "Robert Punch". Robert Smith lent his voice to his character in "Mecha-Streisand".

Robert's monster form is a parody of Mothra, a Toho Studios monster who has appeared in four of her own films as well as several Godzilla films. The twin fairies who appear alongside Mothra, however, were parodied with Poitier rather than with Smith. He appeared in the background of MTV news in "Timmy 2000". He was mentioned in "201".

Kyle, Stan and Cartman all appear to be big fans of Smith with Kyle shouting to him that "Disintegration is the best album ever!" and Cartman stating "Robert Smith kicks ass" (despite being kicked in the nuts by him a few seconds earlier). And Jesus Christ even proclaiming him "Our Saviour".

In The Stick of Truth and The Fractured But Whole there is a instrumental background song during some of the Goth Kids tasks that features the main riff to The Cure's song "A Forest". Considering The Cure are probably the most famous goth rock band in the world; the goth kids are likely big fans.

Appearance

Robert has messy, black hair, a small nose, and thin, black eyebrows. He wears a light purple button-up shirt with black pants and white sneakers.

Personality

He is heroic, teaming up with Leonard Maltin and Sidney Poitier to defeat Barbra Streisand in "Mecha-Streisand".

Trivia

  • Smith delivered all of his lines via phone-call and they were all first takes. It's unknown whether he ever actually met Trey Parker and Matt Stone in person.
  • As Smith walks into the sunset, a version of The Cure's "Let's Go to Bed" is played on the Japanese Lute (Biwa). 
  • Robert Smith had claimed that nothing in his career mattered as much to his younger nephews and nieces as the fact that he was featured on South Park saying that he is "suddenly the coolest uncle".
