}}'''Shelly Marsh''' is [[Randy Marsh|Randy]] and [[Sharon Marsh]]'s daughter and [[Stan Marsh]]'s older sister (and also arch-enemy). Shelly has been voiced at different times by [[Mary Kay Bergman]], [[Mona Marshall]], [[Eliza Schneider]], and now [[April Stewart]]. She first appeared in the [[Season One]] episode, "[[An Elephant Makes Love to a Pig]]".
   
'''Shelley Lynn Marsh''' is a character in the series '''South Park'''. She is [[Stan Marsh]]'s older sister, and is named for [[Trey Parker]]'s older sister of the same name. Shelley has been voiced by Mary Kay Bergman, Mona Marshall, and then Eliza Schneider. She is now voiced by April Stewart.
+
She is extremely ill-tempered, often beating Stan up and calling him and his friends "turds". She is based on [[Trey Parker]]'s older sister, Shelly Parker.
   
Her birthday is either May 17<sup>th</sup> or November 24<sup>th</sup>.
+
==Background==
  +
It is suggested that Shelly wasn't always angry and that she only gained temper after she got braces. The braces gave her a dowdy appearance and gave her low self-esteem, causing her to pick on her brother Stan. No one believed Shelly was beating up Stan, due to the fact when their parents were around she would act sweet and innocent, although Shelly whacked Stan a few times in front of her parents but received no punishment.
  +
  +
Despite the increasing use of the Marsh family over the recent seasons, Shelly's role has not expanded, and many episodes that feature her brother and parents prominently continue to exclude her. In "[[You're Getting Old]]", she is not seen at her brother's birthday party and only briefly appears at the end, looking sad as her mother packs after she divorces Randy.
  +
  +
===Interests===
  +
Shelly loves watching television. Her favorite shows include ''[[Wikipedia:Buffy the Vampire Slayer|Buffy the Vampire Slayer]]'' and ''[[Wikipedia:Friends|Friends]]''. She is also a fan of [[Russell Crowe]], but all these things fall short of her favorite pastime: making Stan suffer. She also enjoys listening to [[Britney Spears]] records. In "[[Over Logging]]", there were posters of horses in the back of her room. This could mean she likes horses. Another poster of Sadie Dakota (a parody of [[Wikipedia:Hannah Montana|Hannah Montana]]) can also be seen. She also enjoys the singer Lorde and in "[[Royal Pudding]]", it is said that she is a Den Leader in Girl Scouts.
  +
  +
===Strength===
  +
Shelly has also been shown to be exceptionally strong, even being able to pick up an entire piano in "[[Mr. Hankey's Christmas Classics]]" and drop it on Stan and Kyle. In "[[An Elephant Makes Love to a Pig]]", she was able to subdue Stan's mutant clone, which was wreaking havoc upon the town. In " [[Chickenpox]] ", Shelly, despite being in the hospital with chicken pox, manages to beat up Stan and flip him into objects, which [[Sharon Marsh|Sharon]] pays no attention to. In "[[Pre-School]]", when the boys turned to her as a last resort when [[The 6th Graders|the sixth graders]] couldn't stop [[Trent Boyett]], which could likely imply that Shelly alone is stronger than all of the sixth graders combined.
  +
  +
===Music===
  +
She can play the piano relatively well and sing relatively badly, as seen by her performance of "[[I Saw Three Ships]]" in "[[Mr. Hankey's Christmas Classics]]" and "[[Turds!]]" in "[[Cat Orgy]]".
  +
  +
===Criminal Record===
  +
*'''Child Abuse/Assault:''' In some episodes, Shelly can be seen beating up Stan and his friends and calling them "turds".
  +
*'''Arson:''' In "[[A Nightmare on Face Time]]", Shelly is seen burning down a [[Blockbuster]] store that Randy buys.
  +
*'''Druging Others :''' In "[[Tegridy Farms Halloween Special]]", Shelly being fed up with Randy's new cannabis business attempts to sabotage his freshly grown "Halloween Special" strain by throwing a homemade chemical concoction in an attempt to sabotage it. This actually enhanced it but in the process tainted it and caused Randy and Towelie to have nightmarish hallucinations and possibly inadvertently led to Randy being sexually assaulted by Harvey Weinstein.
  +
*'''Implied Sexual Assault by Proxy :''' In "[[Tegridy Farms Halloween Special]]", Shelly being fed up with Randy's new cannabis business attempts to sabotage his freshly grown "Halloween Special" strain by throwing a homemade chemical concoction in an attempt to sabotage it. This actually enhanced it but in the process tainted it and caused Randy and Towеlie to have nightmarish hallucinations and possibly inadvertently led to Randy being sexually assaulted by Harvey Weinstein. As Shelly caused the hallucinations and made Randy incapable of properly being able to defend himself while in a hallucination-fueled daze, she is inadvertently responsible for her father's implied sexual assault
  +
  +
===Social Standing===
  +
Shelly is rarely seen with any friends. In "[[Cat Orgy]]", she has had a 22-year-old boyfriend named [[Skyler Morse]] and briefly dated [[Larry Feegan]] until his death. According to her, nobody her own age will go out with her because she's too ugly. However, in "[[Cat Orgy]]", she is talking to a friend named Carrie and in "[[REHASH|#REHASH]]", she asks to go to the Women of Rock concert with her friends [[Kelly and Stacy]].
   
 
==Appearance==
 
==Appearance==
Shelley Marsh wears a grayish-white shirt and pink jeans. She has long, brown hair and bangs. She has bad dental problems, and has to wear a brace around her head, giving her a very unappealing appearance. Because of that, she is usually scowling or frowning. She has a distinct adenoidal, slurred voice, where she breaths heavily through her mouth and nose, and has a lisp problem. On some occasions, she has been seen with her pajamas on, her pyjama shirt is pink. For special occasions she wears a pink dress.

==Personality==
 
==Personality==
Shelley Marsh is filled with a lot of anger and hatred, mostly caused by the brace she has to wear around her head. Her favorite way to vent this anger and hate is to beat up on her younger brother, Stan. The anger also comes from the fact she is not very good-looking, with or without the brace, and nobody likes her at school because of that. This issue is touched in the episode "[[Cat Orgy]]", where she confesses this to Cartman. This is the only instance where Shelley has been portrayed nice and shows a less tempered side of her.

Shelly Marsh is filled with a lot of anger and hatred, mostly caused by the headgear she has to wear. Her favorite way to vent this anger and hate is to beat up her younger brother, Stan. The anger also comes from the fact she is not very good-looking, with or without the headgear, meaning nobody likes her at school. This issue is explored in the episode "[[Cat Orgy]]", where she confesses this to [[Eric Cartman|Cartman]].
   
===Interests===
+
In addition to revealing her vulnerable side during "Cat Orgy", Shelly has also been found to show compassion for her little brother Stan (usually after he plays the Brother-Sister-Family Card) when all other choices have been exhausted. A perfect example of this is the episode "[[Pre-School]]" where Stan and the others are threatened to be killed by Trent Boyett, Shelly vows to protect her little brother because killing him is her job.
Shelley loves watching television. Her favorite shows include "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" and "Friends". She is also a fan of Russell Crowe, but all these things fall short of her favorite pastime: making Stan suffer. She also enjoys listening to Britney Spears records. In Over Logging, there were posters of horses in the back of her room, that could mean she likes horses, and another poster of Sadie Dakota, a parody of Hannah Montana.
 
   
==Character outline==
+
She insists however that Stan come clean about the lies that made Trent want to kill him in the first place, showing that Shelly also cares about the way Stan is growing up and tries to teach him how to be a responsible person.
Shelley was born in 1986 to Sharon and Randy Marsh. It is suggested that Shelley was not always angry, and that she only gained a temper after she got braces. The braces gave her a dowdy appearance, that gave her a low self esteem, causing her to pick on her brother Stan. No one believed Shelley was beating up Stan, due to the fact when parents were around she would act sweet and innocent (although Shelley whacked Stan a few times in front of her parents and recieved no repremands.) After the house was destroyed after a fight between the two, Randy and Sharon were planning on sending Stan to military camp. It was then that Shelley confessed she was beating him up, and it had been her fault. No one liked Shelley at school, which led her into a relationship with a twenty-two year old, [[Skylar]], who did like her. He broke up with her though, after she wouldn't have sex him. This made her depressed and it took Eric Cartman, the boy she had been baby-sitting when Skylar broke up with her, to make her realize that she did not&nbsp;need Skylar and he was a jerk. The two had been enemies, but soon became friends after getting revenge on Skylar.
 
 
In the season twelve episode "[[Over Logging]]", Shelley apparently has had a new boyfriend over the internet for some time. She believes that the emotions between herself and [[Amir]] are real. At the end of the episode, it is revealed that he does care for her, as he also traveled to California so that he and she could resume chatting online. There, they also end up meeting in person, and promise to e-mail each other that night.

===[[Stan Marsh]]===
 
===[[Stan Marsh]]===
He is Shelley's younger brother. She used to beat him up much of the time, but was not seen doing so for a time. She did start punching him repeatedly in "[[Over Logging]]", however, when she thought of how her online boyfriend might worry for her if they could no longer e-mail each other. To date, this episode is the only instance in which her violence towards Stan is noticed by their parents, as Randy then runs over and tells Shelley to calm down. They may have gotten on to better terms and Shelley has not shown any violence towards Stan since Over Logging.
+
Stan is Shelly's younger brother. In early seasons, Shelly would often intimidate her younger brother with threats of physical violence which she would never hesitate to follow up on. Shelly does not hesitate to extend her acts of violence to Stan's friends, in "[[Mr. Hankey's Christmas Classics]]", she smashed both [[Kyle Broflovski|Kyle]] and Stan over the head with a piano.
  +
  +
Although Shelly's violent tendencies have appeared to taper off in later episodes, she did start punching him repeatedly in "[[Over Logging]]", when she thought of how her online boyfriend might worry for her if they could no longer e-mail each other. To date, this episode is the only instance in which her violence towards Stan is noticed by their parents, as Randy then runs over and tells Shelly to calm down. Shelly and Stan may have resolved their sibling rivalry, as Shelly has not shown any violence towards Stan since this incident, however, in "[[PC Principal Final Justice]]", she threatens to shoot Stan, blaming him for Randy and Sharon's disregard for her, in favor of him.
   
 
===[[Sharon Marsh]]===

===[[Randy Marsh]]===

Revision as of 15:56, December 7, 2019

Shelly Marsh is Randy and Sharon Marsh's daughter and Stan Marsh's older sister (and also arch-enemy). Shelly has been voiced at different times by Mary Kay Bergman, Mona Marshall, Eliza Schneider, and now April Stewart. She first appeared in the Season One episode, "An Elephant Makes Love to a Pig".

She is extremely ill-tempered, often beating Stan up and calling him and his friends "turds". She is based on Trey Parker's older sister, Shelly Parker.

Background

It is suggested that Shelly wasn't always angry and that she only gained temper after she got braces. The braces gave her a dowdy appearance and gave her low self-esteem, causing her to pick on her brother Stan. No one believed Shelly was beating up Stan, due to the fact when their parents were around she would act sweet and innocent, although Shelly whacked Stan a few times in front of her parents but received no punishment.

Despite the increasing use of the Marsh family over the recent seasons, Shelly's role has not expanded, and many episodes that feature her brother and parents prominently continue to exclude her. In "You're Getting Old", she is not seen at her brother's birthday party and only briefly appears at the end, looking sad as her mother packs after she divorces Randy.

Interests

Shelly loves watching television. Her favorite shows include Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Friends. She is also a fan of Russell Crowe, but all these things fall short of her favorite pastime: making Stan suffer. She also enjoys listening to Britney Spears records. In "Over Logging", there were posters of horses in the back of her room. This could mean she likes horses. Another poster of Sadie Dakota (a parody of Hannah Montana) can also be seen. She also enjoys the singer Lorde and in "Royal Pudding", it is said that she is a Den Leader in Girl Scouts.

Strength

Shelly has also been shown to be exceptionally strong, even being able to pick up an entire piano in "Mr. Hankey's Christmas Classics" and drop it on Stan and Kyle. In "An Elephant Makes Love to a Pig", she was able to subdue Stan's mutant clone, which was wreaking havoc upon the town. In " Chickenpox ", Shelly, despite being in the hospital with chicken pox, manages to beat up Stan and flip him into objects, which Sharon pays no attention to. In "Pre-School", when the boys turned to her as a last resort when the sixth graders couldn't stop Trent Boyett, which could likely imply that Shelly alone is stronger than all of the sixth graders combined.

Music

She can play the piano relatively well and sing relatively badly, as seen by her performance of "I Saw Three Ships" in "Mr. Hankey's Christmas Classics" and "Turds!" in "Cat Orgy".

Criminal Record

  • Child Abuse/Assault: In some episodes, Shelly can be seen beating up Stan and his friends and calling them "turds".
  • Arson: In "A Nightmare on Face Time", Shelly is seen burning down a Blockbuster store that Randy buys.
  • Druging Others : In "Tegridy Farms Halloween Special", Shelly being fed up with Randy's new cannabis business attempts to sabotage his freshly grown "Halloween Special" strain by throwing a homemade chemical concoction in an attempt to sabotage it. This actually enhanced it but in the process tainted it and caused Randy and Towelie to have nightmarish hallucinations and possibly inadvertently led to Randy being sexually assaulted by Harvey Weinstein.
  • Implied Sexual Assault by Proxy : In "Tegridy Farms Halloween Special", Shelly being fed up with Randy's new cannabis business attempts to sabotage his freshly grown "Halloween Special" strain by throwing a homemade chemical concoction in an attempt to sabotage it. This actually enhanced it but in the process tainted it and caused Randy and Towеlie to have nightmarish hallucinations and possibly inadvertently led to Randy being sexually assaulted by Harvey Weinstein. As Shelly caused the hallucinations and made Randy incapable of properly being able to defend himself while in a hallucination-fueled daze, she is inadvertently responsible for her father's implied sexual assault

Social Standing

Shelly is rarely seen with any friends. In "Cat Orgy", she has had a 22-year-old boyfriend named Skyler Morse and briefly dated Larry Feegan until his death. According to her, nobody her own age will go out with her because she's too ugly. However, in "Cat Orgy", she is talking to a friend named Carrie and in "#REHASH", she asks to go to the Women of Rock concert with her friends Kelly and Stacy.

Appearance

Shelly wears a gray shirt and darker pink pants. She has shoulder-length, messy brown hair with bangs. She has bad dental problems and has to wear orthodontic headgear, giving her a very unappealing appearance. Because of that, she is usually scowling or frowning. She has a distinct adenoidal, somewhat masculine, slurred voice, where she breathes heavily through her mouth and nose, and has a lisp. On some occasions, she has been seen with her pajamas on; her pajama shirt is dark pink and her pants are light pink. For special occasions, she wears a pink dress. At funerals, she wears a variation of the pink dress, but it is black and dark red.

Personality

Shelly Marsh is filled with a lot of anger and hatred, mostly caused by the headgear she has to wear. Her favorite way to vent this anger and hate is to beat up her younger brother, Stan. The anger also comes from the fact she is not very good-looking, with or without the headgear, meaning nobody likes her at school. This issue is explored in the episode "Cat Orgy", where she confesses this to Cartman.

In addition to revealing her vulnerable side during "Cat Orgy", Shelly has also been found to show compassion for her little brother Stan (usually after he plays the Brother-Sister-Family Card) when all other choices have been exhausted. A perfect example of this is the episode "Pre-School" where Stan and the others are threatened to be killed by Trent Boyett, Shelly vows to protect her little brother because killing him is her job.

She insists however that Stan come clean about the lies that made Trent want to kill him in the first place, showing that Shelly also cares about the way Stan is growing up and tries to teach him how to be a responsible person.

Family

Stan Marsh

Stan is Shelly's younger brother. In early seasons, Shelly would often intimidate her younger brother with threats of physical violence which she would never hesitate to follow up on. Shelly does not hesitate to extend her acts of violence to Stan's friends, in "Mr. Hankey's Christmas Classics", she smashed both Kyle and Stan over the head with a piano.

Although Shelly's violent tendencies have appeared to taper off in later episodes, she did start punching him repeatedly in "Over Logging", when she thought of how her online boyfriend might worry for her if they could no longer e-mail each other. To date, this episode is the only instance in which her violence towards Stan is noticed by their parents, as Randy then runs over and tells Shelly to calm down. Shelly and Stan may have resolved their sibling rivalry, as Shelly has not shown any violence towards Stan since this incident, however, in "PC Principal Final Justice", she threatens to shoot Stan, blaming him for Randy and Sharon's disregard for her, in favor of him.

Sharon Marsh

She is Shelly's mother. Of all the grownups in the family, Sharon seems closest to Shelly. However, in "Over Logging", Shelly was shown to be rather bratty towards her mother, as she threw a fit over her telling her to get off the Internet and go to bed, asking, "Mom, why do you hate me so much?!"

Randy Marsh

Randy is Shelly's father. He is usually seen interacting with Stan, but he and Shelly have spoken to each other several times.

She is frustrated by Randy recording ridiculously everyday family antics, saying "Turn it off, Dad!".

Randy has shown to love her very much, as seen in "Broadway Bro Down" where he drove to the musical theater, in which women feel influenced to give their partner oral sex after attending, to prevent any sexual relationship between her and Larry Feegan.

Although Shelly doesn't feel like he does, claiming that he doesn't even try to get to know her in "PC Principal Final Justice". Randy responds saying that he really wants to but he feels like she hates him.

Their relationship becomes even more strained after Randy moves his family to Tegridy Farms since she didn't want to move and hates weed, which angers her father to the point where he gets Shelly locked up in jail when he tells the police about her having a "marijuana problem" and he feels to remorse over it.

In "Mexican Joker" Shelly was very happy when she found out Randy went to jail and hoped he could never get out. When Randy thanks his family for their "support" he only mentions Sharon and Stan and completely ignores her.

Marvin Marsh

Marvin is Shelly's paternal grandfather. She seems to love him a lot, because when she thought Stan was trying to kill him, she grew even angrier than usual at Stan. In "PC Principal Final Justice", she aimed her gun at Marvin when Randy says to take care of him.

Jimbo Kern

He is Shelly's uncle. Not much interaction happens between them.

Flo Kimble

She was Shelly's maternal great-aunt. Aunt Flo gave Shelly a television/CD player/surround sound home theater for Halloween which Shelly thanked her for before she was killed by the evil goldfish she gave Stan.

Relationships

Skyler Morse

Skylar

Skyler was Shelly's boyfriend in "Cat Orgy".

No one liked Shelly at school, which led her into a relationship with a twenty-two-year-old wanna-be musician, Skyler Morse, who did like her, if only because he wanted to have sex with her. He broke up with her after she refused to have sex him in "Cat Orgy", leaving her depressed, and she and Cartman got revenge on him.

Eric Cartman

Wildwildwestrap1

Cartman and Shelly in "Cat Orgy".

After Skyler broke up with her, she became depressed and it took Eric Cartman, the boy she had been babysitting when Skyler broke up with her, to make her realize that she did not need him and that he was a jerk. The two had been enemies, but soon became friends after getting revenge on Skyler.

However, in subsequent appearances, their mutual understanding appears to have deteriorated, and Shelly treats him just as she treats any of Stan's other friends. She refers to him as a "fat turd".

Amir

OverLogging24

Amir and Shelly finally meet.

In the Season Twelve episode, "Over Logging", Shelly had a new boyfriend over the internet for some time. She believes that the emotions between herself and Amir are real. At the end of the episode, it is revealed that he does care for her, as he also traveled to California so that he and she could resume chatting online. There, they also end up meeting in person and promise to e-mail each other that night.

Given her subsequent involvement with Larry Feegan, it can be assumed this relationship ended.

Larry Feegan

Settlers of Catan

Larry and Shelly playing together in "Broadway Bro Down".

Shelly befriends Larry Feegan in "Broadway Bro Down" after she stands up to his parents. They begin to spend a lot of time together, playing Settlers of Catan and eventually going to see the play Wicked together. However, Randy, knowing that Shelly will end up giving Larry a blowjob if they go to see the play, breaks in and floods the performance. Larry Feegan is killed in the resulting chaos, leaving Shelly heartbroken. She has recently moved on from his death.
