Towelie is a talking towel who was genetically engineered so he could make people as dry as necessary depending on the situation. He is usually seen giving towel advice to the citizens of South Park, or getting high. The theme song from Popeye plays whenever Towelie gets high.
He was deliberately made to be an extremely bad character. This was indicated at the very end of the first episode he appears in, when Cartman says "You're the worst character ever Towelie", to which Towelie sanguinely replies "I know".
Because the creators of South Park did so well in making Towelie a terrible character, some people regard him as a good character. Because of this, Towelie has shown up in more than one episode. However, most of Towelie's appearances have been short cameos.
- Don't forget to bring a towel!
- You wanna get high?
- (when high) I have no idea what's going on.
