South Park: The Complete First Season is a 2001 DVD release of Season One, including all thirteen episodes from the season, in addition to trailers, TV spots, the "A South Park Thanksgiving" short featured on The Tonight Show With Jay Leno, the "O Holy Night" music video, the "O Little Town of Bethlehem" music video, and Trey Parker and Matt Stone present at the 1997 CableACE Awards. It was also originally to feature audio commentaries, but they were not included in the final set. The Blu-ray boxset containing the re-rendered episodes was released on December 5, 2017.


This front cover's primary color is dark-gray and black. It depicts Kyle, Kenny, Cartman and Stan looking at the camera smiling. This is the only cover to not have any objects, theme or reference to any episode from the show. The inside cover shows the three boys looking down concerned, with Kenny now on the ground, dying and looking at his missing lower half.

The back cover shows the boys in their normal outfits laughing, except for Kyle, who is mooning the viewer.

Audio Commentaries

Originally, the DVD set was to include full episode audio commentaries, but for unknown reasons these were removed from the release. Trey Parker and Matt Stone were angry with the decision and worked out a deal to release the commentaries on a CD available directly at the Comedy Central website. Despite this, these audio commentaries were included on the season's re-released Blu-ray set in 2017, as how it originally was supposed to be on DVD.[1]

Unlike the later commentaries, these ran for the entire episode's length. No commentaries were included on the release of Season Two, and it was not until the release of the third season that a season set was released with commentaries, albeit small mini commentaries.

However, the episodes do open with the same episode introductions as on the Rhino Home Video releases, though these are brief live-action segments. Some of them feature Parker and Stone doing "fireside chats" alongside a dog that changes with each shot. Others feature them dressed as cowboys and addressing the viewer as a "South Parkateer," usually signing off with their friend "Indian Companion" telling them "Someone coming." The intro for "Cartman's Mom is a Dirty Slut" features Parker and Stone entertaining the seniors at a retirement community. All of them consist of the pair generally declaring the forthcoming episode their favorite and explaining why they love it, often including a joke. However, these are humorous in nature and rarely discuss actual production facts.
