[[WMG: '''Season One:''']]

[[folder: Cartman Gets An Anal Probe]]
* The 'School Days' song was a hit in 1907 and 1908, first recorded by Byron G. Harlan.
* Stan's humongous smile and floating hearts when he sees Wendy is very reminiscent of Charlie Brown's when he sees the little red-haired girl.
* "Cows on a people train" references an obscure Creator/DrSeuss book entitled '''In A People House''', which he wrote under the pseudonym "Theo [=LeSeig=]"
* The song "I Love to Singa" is from the 1936 Creator/TexAvery [[WesternAnimation/ILoveToSinga cartoon of the same name]]. One of the characters is a 'tasteless' crooning owl named Owl Jolson, one of four hatchlings born to the parent owls.
* Kyle tells Ike, "Do your impersonation of David Caruso's career" referring to his career after '''Series/NYPDBlue''' - it took a dive and didn't recover until ''Series/CSIMiami'', more than a decade later. Ike takes a dive head first into the snow.
[[/folder]]

[[folder: Weight-Gain 4000]]
* Mr. Hat's [[ExorcistHead spinning head]] echoes that from '''Film/TheExorcist'''.
* Kathie Lee's song is the one she sang for Carnival Cruise lines. The song is originally from '''Sweet Charity.'''
* Garrison and Mr. Hat arguing is a likely parody of the film '''Magic''', where a ventriloquist has multiple personality disorder, and argues with his puppet.
* When Cartman says "Beefcake - beefCAAKE!" it sounds like Torrence from '''Literature/TheShining''' when he yells "Redrum-redRUUM!"
* Mr. Garrison's "Are you talking to me?" line is from '''Film/TaxiDriver'''.
* As Mr. Garrison walks down the street with his new purchase, everyone calls out "Nice gun". This is similar to a scene in '''Doc Hollywood,''' in which the title character walks down the street with a new pig given to him as payment for a doctor's visit. Everyone comments, "(that sure is a) Nice pig, Doc" etc.
* "It is…too late for me, young Wendy." was paraphrased from Darth Vader in '''Film/ReturnOfTheJedi'''.
* An oft-repeated line in '''Franchise/ScoobyDoo''' was, "And I would have gotten away with it, too, if it weren't for those meddling kids!" This line was echoed by Garrison/Mr. Hat when he's being arrested.
* The manuscript for '''Walden''' by Creator/HenryDavidThoreau is passed off by Cartman as his own essay simply by crossing out Thoreau's name and writing his own.
* Cartman appears on '''Geraldo.'''
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Volcano]]
* Cartman's mention of '''Series/StepByStep''' could be considered a shout-out.
** Well considering one of the stars of that show was Patrick Duffy, whom Scuzzlebutt had for a leg...
* The episode as a whole is [[WordOfGod said]] to be a rip on the eruption disaster movies that were coming out around that time; specifically '''Film/{{Volcano}}''' and '''Film/DantesPeak'''.
* Cartman's mention of Danforth could easily be a shout-out to '''Rambo: First Blood.''' John {{Franchise/Rambo}} serves with a soldier named Danforth.
* The ''Lava and You'' film is a clear parody of 1950s nuclear safety films, which suggested "duck and cover" as an effective tactic when under nuclear attack.
* Scuzzlebutt sounds exactly like Ludo from '''Film/{{Labyrinth}}''' when he says, "Friend."
[[/folder]]

[[folder: Big Gay Al's Big Gay Boat Ride]]
* "Would you like some toasted cheese sandwiches?" is an homage to one of the '''Film/{{Psycho}}''' movies; Norman Bates tells Mary Loomis that she smells like the toasted cheese sandwiches his mother used to bring him.
* When Stan and Sparky are leaving Big Gay Al's, Al says "When you get back to town, tell them about us, will you? Tell them there are gay animals here who need homes, desperately." This is the same thing the Winged Lion says about the Misfit Toys to Rudolph and the Dentist Elf, in the '''WesternAnimation/RudolphTheRedNosedReindeer''' stop-motion Christmas special, before they leave the Island and return to Santa.
* Big Gay Al's departure is a spoof of Dr. Lao's disappearance at the end of '''Film/SevenFacesOfDrLao.'''
[[/folder]]

[[folder: An Elephant Makes Love To A Pig]]
* Shelley's particular style of headgear likely comes from the '''Film/{{Brazil}}''' character of the same name.
* Mephisto and his assistant Kevin are homages to Dr. Moreau and his assistant Majal from the 1996 film '''Film/TheIslandOfDoctorMoreau'''.
* Pip, who's full name is Philip Pirrup, is from the novel '''Literature/GreatExpectations'''. He quotes the novel and will later star in an episode based on it.
* The part where Terrence yells, "Daddy, Nooooooooo!" when his dad shoots the genetic clone of Stan comes from '''Film/TheOmen'''. It's the next to last scene in the church when Robert Thorn is going to stab Damien.
* The end line, "That'll do, pig." is a reference to '''Film/{{Babe}}'''.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Death]]
* The music played by Grandpa Marsh to show Stan his pain is a clear (or actually, kinda muffled) parody of Music/{{Enya}}'s ''Orinoco Flow''.
* There are specific mentions of '''Series/FullHouse''' and '''She's the Sheriff.'''
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Pinkeye]]
* The whole episode is very '''Film/ReturnOfTheLivingDead''', especially doctors describing the symptoms.
* Stan's costume, as mentioned, is Raggedy Andy. Everyone else is Chewbacca from '''Franchise/StarWars''', except Garrison who is MarilynMonroe, and Cartman who is Hitler.
* The doctor's intonation is very like Creator/JimmyStewart.
* Puffy the Bear, who looks exactly like '''Smokey Bear'''.
* Chef trying to explain to the doctor that everyone is turning to zombies could be a reference to the novel, '''Literature/IAmLegend'''.
* Chef performs a dead-on parody of ''[[Music/MichaelJackson Thriller.]]''
** Literally...
* Stan faced with having to kill his zombie girlfriend could be a nod to '''Film/EvilDead2'''.
* The last shot, with the little bunch of flowers and the arm coming out of the grave was a likely homage to the end of '''Film/{{Carrie 1976}}'''.
[[/folder]]

[[folder: Starvin' Marvin]]
* Cartman and Wendy quote a passage from '''Literature/AChristmasCarol''' line for line.
* The canned food drive based on '''The Cash Grab.'''
* The end battle spoofs '''Film/{{Braveheart}}'''.
* Kyle mentions both '''Series/MacGyver''' and '''Series/FullHouse'''. (Sally Struthers was actually on '''All in the Family''', a show [[WordOfGod cited]] at times to be the original inspiration for Cartman's character.)
[[/folder]]

[[folder: Mr. Hankey the Christmas Poo]]
* Stan's speech is directly from '''WesternAnimation/ACharlieBrownChristmas''', as is the opening of the scene of catching snowflakes; "Try and catch snowflakes on your tongue. It's fun!"
* With his stylized eyes, white gloves, and high voice, Mr. Hankey is reminiscent of MickeyMouse.
* Mackey calls Kyle a "sick little monkey," an oft-used line on '''WesternAnimation/TheRenAndStimpyShow'''.
* Kyle carrying Mr. Hankey in a box and his initial inactivity in the presence of others causing Kyle to be put in an asylum is similar to plot devices around Michigan J. Frog from '''OneFroggyEvening'''.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Damien]]
* The whole episode has myriad references to '''Film/TheOmen''', not the least of which is the title character.
* The Megaman toys are based on '''Franchise/PowerRangers.''' They were actually going to be Power Ranger toys in an early script draft, but the Comedy Central legal team asked that the name be changed to avoid copyright issues.
* Stan quotes '''Film/StarTrekFirstContact'''; Commander Riker, from the future, has an exchange with Zephram Cochrane in which he says, "Somebody once said, 'Don't try to be a great man, just be a man.'" When Cochrane asked who said that, Riker responds, "You did. Ten years from now."
[[/folder]]

[[folder: Tom's Rhinoplasty]]
* Wendy does herself up like Olivia Newton-John at the end of '''{{Film/Grease}}'''.
* "We just got a call in the office: your grandma just died." is from '''Film/FerrisBuellersDayOff''', when Ferris gets his girlfriend Sloan out of school.
[[/folder]]

[[folder: Mecha-Streisand]]
* Music/BarbraStreisand's "condo" is modeled after the house (a real one) that Creator/WoodyAllen goes to in the futuristic movie '''Sleeper.'''
* Barbra Streisand's father is said to be an insurance salesman, and her mother a jackal. In '''Film/TheOmen''', Damien's mother was a jackal.
* The Japanese princesses in the shell are the ones whom Mothra has to rescue in Tokyo in his first film.
* Barbra Streisand becomes Mecha Barbura Sturaisanda, a reference to Mecha '''{{Franchise/Godzilla}}'''
** Leonard Maltin becomes Ultura Lenardu Marutin, referencing '''Ultraman.'''
** Sidney Poitier becomes Megara Poatia, his design based on '''{{Franchise/Gamera}}'''
** Robert Smith becomes Robartu Smitu, his design based on '''Mothra.'''
*** And they all have their own song, just as the Japanese monsters do.
* Stan says, "My mom always said there were no monsters, but there are, aren't there, Chef?" - a paraphrase of Newt's comment to Ripley in '''Film/{{Aliens}}'''.
[[/folder]]

[[folder: Cartman's Mom Is A Dirty Slut]]
* The 'Throbbing Star' song is a parody of ''My Heart Will Go On'' from '''Film/{{Titanic}}'''.
* Cartman's afro is based on Kid from hip-hop duo Kid 'n Play. The clock is borrowed from Flava Flav.
* America's Stupidest Home Videos is an obvious parody of '''Series/AmericasFunniestHomeVideos'''.
[[/folder]]

[[WMG: '''Season Two:''']]

[[folder: Not Without My Anus]]
* Title is a reference to the film (and book) '''Not Without My Daughter'''. In the episode, Terrence needs to rescue his daughter.
* The Canadian love of Kraft Dinner is likely from the Music/BarenakedLadies song, ''If I Had a Million Dollars'' in which the Canadian band says with that kind of money they wouldn't have to eat Kraft Dinner, but they would.
* Saddam Hussein and Scott paraphrase Darth Vader and Lando in '''Film/TheEmpireStrikesBack'''. (Hussein says, "I changed my mind. Pray that I do not change it any more," to which Scott mutters, "This deal's getting worse all the time." In '''Empire''', Vader says, "I am altering the deal, pray I do not alter it any further." to which Lando mutters the same phrase as Scott, "This deal is getting worse all the time.")
[[/folder]]

[[folder: Cartman's Mom Is Still A Dirty Slut]]
* Chef states he used to watch '''{{Series/Quincy}}'''.
* Kenny's journey to the 'backup generator' and the mention of 'velociraptors' reference '''Franchise/JurassicPark'''. A shadow of a dinosaur can be seen on the generator, later.
* Kenny completing the circuit with his hands is similar to current running through Doc in '''Film/BackToTheFuture'''.
* Cannibalism under extreme conditions was the subject of '''Film/{{Alive}}''', which also featured the song ''Ave Maria''.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Chickenlover]]
* The rainbow motif on the Booktastic Bus is likely a reference to '''Series/ReadingRainbow.'''
* Barbrady and Cartman are both seen filming episodes of '''Series/{{Cops}}'''.
[[/folder]]

[[folder: Ike's Wee Wee]]
* Garrison is watching '''Series/{{Teletubbies}}'''.
* Mackey is snatched by '''Series/TheATeam'''.
* Dr. Schwartz paraphrases Luke from '''Film/ReturnOfTheJedi''' when speaking about circumcision in the family.
[[/folder]]

[[folder: Conjoined Fetus Lady]]
* Cartman makes reference to '''Literature/MobyDick''', mentioning Captain Ahab and the pursuit of a whale.
* The picture of conjoined twins is not of conjoined twins, but members of the musical group Music/TheMonkees.
* When Pip throws his final throw against the Chinese team, the way he spins, throws the ball, then slowly stops spinning, is reminiscent of the Death Blossom scene in '''Film/TheLastStarfighter'''.
[[/folder]]

[[folder: The Mexican Staring Frog of Southern Sri Lanka]]
* Episode title could easily be based on the Creator/MarkTwain short story '''The Celebrated Jumping Frog of Calaveras County.'''
* "A question a child might ask, but not a childish question." - Garrison's line comes from a commercial for the History of the Vietnam War book series. In the commercial, a man and his son stand before the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington, DC. The son looks up, and asks "Daddy, what's Vietnam?" A voiceover somberly intones "A question a child might ask - but not a childish question."
* "…but Pony Boy was beat up pretty bad. He kept saying, 'stay gold.'" - this is from Chapter 9 of '''TheOutsiders''', by S. E. Hinton, a short novel about four friends who were in a gang. Only there, it was Ponyboy's friend who was in the hospital, and Ponyboy was visiting him. His friend dies saying these words: "Stay gold, Ponyboy. Stay gold."
* Jesus and Pals becomes a parody of '''JerrySpringer''', complete with chanting crowd and manufactured fights. One audience member thinks he's on '''Montel Williams'''.
* While the boys are in detention trying to come up with a revenge plan against Jimbo and Ned, Kyle asks if they've seen "that one '''Series/TheBradyBunch''' where the guy...". Most likely he's referring to the 5th-season episode "Out of This World" where Greg tricks his brothers into thinking there's a UFO in the sky.
[[/folder]]

[[folder: City On The Edge Of Forever]]
* The little kid who is killed by the monster is a '''Franchise/StarTrek''' RedShirt. The title of the episode is also from Star Trek.
* The roofies truck driver bears a resemblance to Music/ElvisPresley, who was a truck driver before he became a singer.
* The scene of the bus breaking in half and the boy falling out through the rear window is partially derived from '''Film/TheLostWorldJurassicPark''', when the dinosaurs had pushed the trailers almost over the cliff. The lead actors hold on to the interior of the rear trailer as debris falls past them and out the back window and door. A similar effect is shown in '''Film/{{Titanic}}''', when passengers let go of railings and fall to their deaths (note that the bus, like the ship, has split in two.)
* The video made by the parents echoes "Music/WeAreTheWorld."
* One of the flashbacks parodies the infamous "Fonzie Jumps the Shark" episode of Series/HappyDays.
** Actually, it's a reference to the earlier, better episode (the shark was probably a failed attempt to remake past success). In that episode, Fonzie lost his 'coolness' and decided he could get it back if he set a new world record by jumping 14 school buses on his motorcycle. Naturally, the episode ended on a cliffhanger (with Fonzie in midair over the buses, no less), leading to a 'Last time, on Happy Days' opening. Unlike the Hawaii...saga (it was, like, 4 episodes), the whole thing was PlayedForLaughs, rather than drama.
[[/folder]]

[[folder: Summer Sucks]]
* Garrison gets a [[ComicStrip/{{Peanuts}} Charlie Brown]] smile after fantasizing about barbecuing '''Lamb Chop'''.
* [[Disney/SongOfTheSouth Uncle Remus]] is mentioned in place of Uncle Sam.
* Garrison goes to see WesternAnimation/DrKatzProfessionalTherapist.
* The boys picking up their instruments and beginning to play (as the snake is destroying South Park) is reminiscent of the musicians on the deck of the '''Film/{{Titanic}}'''.
* Everyone being covered with ash at the end might have been a reference to the final scene of '''Film/{{Volcano}}'''.
[[/folder]]

[[folder: Chef's Salty Chocolate Balls]]
* Cartman makes mention of '''Film/TheGoonies'''.
* Mr. Hanky echoes [[Franchise/StarWars Yoda]] when he's dying, saying "There is... another... Sky...walker."
* The flashback segment where Kyle remembers all he and Mr. Hanky did together is similar to the one in '''WesternAnimation/FrostyTheSnowman''' where the kids remember all that Frosty did with them after Frosty melts away.
* The ''Mr. Hanky and Me'' film parodies '''Film/{{Philadelphia}}'''.
* The segment beginning with the medic who scoops Mr. Hanky up and ending when Mr. Hanky is revived by Chef's chocolate salty balls comes from '''Film/ETTheExtraterrestrial''', beginning when Elliott's house is quarantined and ending when Elliott unzips E.T. to find him alive and well.
* "'''I''' have had enough of '''''you!'''''" echoes [[Franchise/StarTrek Capt. Kirk's]] statement to the Klingon commander Kruge when the Genesis planet is about to blow up in '''Film/StarTrekIIITheSearchForSpock.'''
* Mr. Hanky working his magic on the town comes from '''Disney/{{Fantasia}}''''s "The Sorcerer's Apprentice."
[[/folder]]

* Cartman's sleeping bag features Steve Urkel from '''Series/FamilyMatters'''.
[[/folder]]

[[folder: Roger Ebert Should Lay Off The Fatty Foods]]
* Much of this episode is taken from the '''Franchise/StarTrek''' episode, "Dagger Of The Mind". Dr. Tristan Adams, Simon van Gelder, Missy, the uniforms, and the neural neutralizer are all present. There's also a shout-out to Ricardo Montalban, who played Khan.
* The Latin phrase in the planetarium "Me transmitte sursum, Caledoni!" roughly translates as "Bring me up, Scotsman," an allusion to the phrase "Beam me up, Scotty".
* The Cheesy Poofs talent search is much like those of Oscar Mayer.
* "Don't pick your nose, hon." - This and Cartman's responses are taken from '''Film/MontyPythonsLifeOfBrian'''.
* The poor little girl with the windswept hair at the Cheesy Poof callback auditions is Cosette, from '''Literature/LesMiserables'''.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Clubhouses]]
* The opening music is a variation of the theme music from '''WesternAnimation/FatAlbertAndTheCosbyKids'''. This episode also features the show Fat Abbot.
* Fat Abbott's line "You Punk Ass Blasphemous Dope Fiend Bitch!" is taken from '''Film/NewJackCity'''.
[[/folder]]

[[folder: Cow Days]]
* Cartman's lines as the Vietnamese prostitute Ming Li are from '''Film/FullMetalJacket'''.
[[/folder]]

[[folder: Chef Aid]]
* The way Mr. Twig was boiled comes from the bunny in a boiling pot in '''Film/FatalAttraction'''.
* "And what happened then? Well in South Park they say, that Johnny's Cochran's heart grew three sizes that day." - a near-direct quote from '''Literature/HowTheGrinchStoleChristmas'''.
* The Alanis Morrisette video Mr. Garrison watches is a parody of the video for Morrisette's song "Ironic".
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Spookyfish]]
* Clear reference to the '''Series/StarTrekTheOriginalSeries''' episode ''[[Recap/StarTrekS2E4MirrorMirror Mirror, Mirror]]'', which featured bearded warlike counterparts of the crew. The portal references the episode ''Assignment: Earth'' and the fight between the two Cartmans references ''Whom Gods Destroy'', where a shapeshifter takes on Kirk's appearance and Kirk tells Spock he must kill them both. Throughout the episode, the crappy 'split screen' effect can be seen.
* Sharon's reactions to Stan's supposed murder spree references '''Literature/TheBadSeed''', in which an eight-year-old girl is a killer. Carol [=McCormick=] also has reactions from the film when her son dies.
* Evil Cartman refers to his mom as Mother, as Norman Bates referred to his mom in '''Film/{{Psycho}}'''.
* The way Stan deals with his spooky goldfish comes from '''Film/{{Poltergeist}}''', when a boy is afraid of a clown doll.
* The spinning Music/BarbraStreisand transitions are a reference to old 1960s hero shows like Batman and Robin.
* The IndianBurialGround pet store references '''Literature/PetSematary''', in which pets buried there come back evil.
* Stan's statement, "I never thought it was such a bad little squash, it just needs some tender loving care" is a paraphrase from '''WesternAnimation/ACharlieBrownChristmas''' about the little tree.
[[/folder]]

[[folder: Merry Christmas, Charlie Manson]]
* The theater's name in '''Film/ItsAWonderfulLife''' is the Bijou, just like South Park's theater.
* 'The Grinchy Poo' is shot for shot '''WesternAnimation/HowTheGrinchStoleChristmas'''.
* "Merry Christmas, Charlie Manson!" and the singing of ''Hark! The Herald Angels Sing'' is straight out of '''WesternAnimation/ACharlieBrownChristmas'''.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Gnomes]]
* '''Film/LeanOnMe''' had a poster in it that said 'Eastside pride can never be denied.' A similar poster appears in the classroom at South Park Elementary.
* The scene depicted in the Gnomes' underpants mining operation comes from the [[WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes Merrie Melodies]] short "Yankee Dood It."
* The Harbucks Rep dresses up like Joe Camel and passes out coffee giving a speech that would be reminiscent of a cigarette ad.
[[/folder]]

[[folder: Prehistoric Ice Man]]
* Cartman's imprecise recap of a movie where a caveman is frozen and these people thaw him out and make him their caveman friend may be referring to the plot of '''Film/EncinoMan'''.
* Steve Irwin, the Series/CrocodileHunter, is caricatured here.

[[/folder]]

[[WMG: '''Season Three:''']]

[[folder: Rainforest Shmainforest]]
* Miss Stevens strung up between two trees and the giant Yanogapa rising from the brush is an homage to '''Film/KingKong'''.
* In the jungle background near the Yanogapa village, there's four heads on stakes and a video camera, it's a gruesome homage to '''Film/CannibalHolocaust'''
[[/folder]]

[[folder: Spontaneous Combustion]]
* The two lines spoken right after crucified Cartman is taken out of the church come from '''Film/MontyPythonsTheMeaningOfLife'''.
* "Up your ass with broken glass!" is reminiscent of '''Series/WelcomeBackKotter''', in which one of the characters would often say, "Up your nose with a rubber hose."
* Randy's statue is Michelangelo's ''David.''
* The sequence in which Chef appears to Cartman and tells him the rescue was a dream comes from a scene in '''Film/TheLastTemptationOfChrist''' by Nikos Kazantzakis, in which Jesus is given a chance on the cross to live the rest of his life. Later, he finds out that it was all a dream and he is still dying on the cross.
* Stan does the [[Franchise/StarTrek vulcan sign]] with his hand while quoting Spock's, "The needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few."
* The song ''You and Me, Girl'' is reminiscent of '''{{WesternAnimation/The Archie|Show}}s.''' The visuals are reminiscent of both Archie music videos and '''Franchise/ScoobyDoo'''.
[[/folder]]

[[folder: The Succubus]]
* Cartman was called "Piggy" by the Optometrist. In '''Literature/LordOfTheFlies''', a brilliant but obese orphan boy was called "Piggy" by all of his friends, and he wore glasses. He mentioned how [[BlindWithoutEm his eyesight was terrible without the glasses.]]
* Cartman in his glasses is mistaken for Jonathan Lipnicki from '''Film/JerryMaguire'''.
* The wedding of Chef and Veronica is similar to that of Prince Eric and Vanessa (the sea witch Ursula in disguise) in Disney's '''Disney/TheLittleMermaid'''.

[[/folder]]

[[folder: Tweek Vs. Craig]]
* The horn music before the first fight is definite '''Film/{{Rocky}}'''.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Jakovasaurs]]
* Junjun talks like a [[Franchise/StarWars Gungan]], but Jakov is just loud. The [[WordOfGod commentary]] for this episode states that they were trying to make these characters as annoying as possible, and they still weren't as annoying as Jar Jar.
[[/folder]]

[[folder: Sexual Harassment Panda]]
* Gerald's commercials come straight from the Larry H. Parker commercials seen in Southern California: Bebe's spot comes from the commercial in which this man sits proudly on his motorcycle as he says "Larry H. Parker got me 2.1 million." (These sorts of lawyer commercials can actually be seen all over the country)
* The Island of Misfit Mascots commune is essentially [[WesternAnimation/RudolphTheRedNosedReindeer The Island of Misfit Toys]].
[[/folder]]

[[folder: Cat Orgy]]
* The obvious reference is to '''Film/WildWildWest'''.
* Another clear shout-out is to '''Film/{{Aliens}}'''.
* The Wild Animal World segment Kitty watches on TV is the same one used in '''Film/NaturalBornKillers''', when Harrelson watches TV in a hotel room. (Note: this may or may not be a stock footage coincidence.)
* "Charade you are!" is from the Music/PinkFloyd song ''Pigs.''
* "Hurry, kitty, you're my only hope." - likely a reference to Leia's plea to Obi-Wan in '''Franchise/StarWars: Film/ANewHope'''.
[[/folder]]

[[folder: Two Guys Naked In A Hot Tub]]
* There is, of course, '''Series/CharliesAngels'''. To make the effect complete, whenever the Angels show up, variations on their theme music is heard.
* The song both the ATF and Mr. Mackey play is a garbled version of Music/{{Cher}}'s ''Believe''.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Jewbilee]]
* Elder Schwartz wears a diamond design with a Star of David in it, similar to the Franchise/{{Superman}} emblem.
* Moses' appearance is derived from that of the Master Control Program in '''Film/{{Tron}}'''.
* "It's a trap!" is generally considered to be Admiral Ackbar's catchphrase; it's possible this phrase appearing is a reference to '''Franchise/StarWars'''.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Chinpokomon]]
* The obvious reference is of course to '''{{Franchise/Pokemon}}''' (which means 'pocket monster.' Chinpokomon means 'little penis monster.')
** There were reports of a Pokémon episode, ''Electric Porygon Soldier'', causing seizures in some children. As a result, [[MissingEpisode the episode never aired in the United States]]. Kenny's seizure is a reference to this.
* The scene in which Sharon tells Mr. Garrison to "Get on the wire to every parent around the country and tell them how to bring those sons of bitches down!" is derived from '''Film/IndependenceDay'''.
[[/folder]]

[[folder: Starvin Marvin In Space]]
* The wormhole is right out of '''Series/StarTrekDeepSpaceNine''', as is the warping movement the Marklar ship experiences in the wormhole. The Marklar ship turns out to have a computer with a female voice, just like the Enterprise ships and Voyager do, and it is armed with photon torpedoes.
* Sally Struthers appears here as [[Franchise/StarWars Jabba the Hutt]] with her very own Tiberian Junker, and Kenny is frozen in carbonate.
* The bridge of the Christian Ship resembles that of the [[Franchise/StarTrek Enterprise]], but the exterior is more Klingon and '''VideoGame/StarFox''' influenced.
* The appearance of the Marklars is similar to the Kanamits from '''Series/TheTwilightZone''' episode, ''To Serve Man.''
[[/folder]]

[[folder: Korn's Groovy Pirate Ghost Mystery]]
* The main homage here is to '''Franchise/ScoobyDoo''', with the Korn guys drawn in the style of Creator/HannaBarbera, driving the mystery mobile and solving a spooky mystery.
* There is also a reference to [[WesternAnimation/SuperFriends the Wonder Twins]], who could change their forms. There are some similarities between Nibblet and the Wonder Twins' pet chimp, Gleek.
* Kenny's costume is an Enforcement Droid 209 from '''Franchise/RoboCop'''.
* Cleo Broflovski looks like the corpse of Norman Bates' mother in '''Film/{{Psycho}}'''.

[[/folder]]

[[folder: Hooked On Monkey Fonics]]
* "You got some kind of Creator/JohnTravolta disease?" references '''Film/TheBoyInThePlasticBubble'''. John Travolta played Tod Lubitch, the boy who had a deficient immune system and had to spend his childhood in a hermetically sealed room with clear plastic walls, and thus in a home-school environment.
* The interaction between Kyle and Rebecca, from "Rebecca, don't you ever… look at the town?" to their kiss, mirrors that between [[Franchise/StarTrek Capt. Kirk]] and Shahna in ''[[Recap/StarTrekS2E16TheGamestersOfTriskelion The Gamesters of Triskelion]].'' The music comes from a different episode entitled ''This Side of Paradise.''
* Rebecca Cotswolds is based on Rebecca A. Sealfon, a Brooklyn girl who won the Scripps Howard National Spelling Bee Championship. Her major quirk was whispering the letters of a word into her hands before saying them aloud.
[[/folder]]

* The title is a spoof of a Civil War novelette, '''Literature/TheRedBadgeOfCourage''' written by Stephen Crane.
[[/folder]]

[[folder: Mr. Hanky's Christmas Classics]]

[[/folder]]

[[folder: Worldwide Recorder Concert]]
* Cartman mentions '''Series/ChicagoHope.'''
* Garrison's directions of "Second star to the right, and straight on 'til morning." reference the directions to Never Never Land from '''Literature/PeterPan'''.
** It also doubles as a reference to {{Film/Star Trek VI The Undiscovered Country}}, as Garrison's delivery of the line (as well as the context) mirrors Kirk's final line from the film.
[[/folder]]

[[WMG: '''[[WesternAnimation/SouthParkBiggerLongerAndUncut The Movie]]''']]

[[folder: Bigger, Longer, and Uncut]]

* Stan's encounter with the clitoris is nearly identical to Atreyu's encounter with the giant turtle Morla in '''Film/TheNeverendingStory'''.
* Cartman's battle with Saddam Hussein parodies '''DragonballZ'''.
* Satan throwing Saddam into the pit of hell mirrors Darth Vader throwing the Emperor into the maintenance shaft in '''Film/ReturnOfTheJedi'''.
* Fans of '''Theatre/LesMiserables''', listen to [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6mDsNdSzok4 "La Resistance"]] and try not to be reminded of [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BpGA_VRc1Ro "One Day More"]]. One fan even [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i1clpQ0SkIs combined the latter with clips from this film]], and they go together perfectly. Given that Stone and Parker are huge fans of musical theater, this probably wasn't lost on them.

[[WMG: '''Season Four:''']]

[[folder: Tooth Fairy Tats 2000]]
* Loogie is clearly patterned after Vito Corleone in '''Film/TheGodfather'''.
* The line, "I want those South Park kids dead, I want their families dead, I want their houses burnt to the ground!" is an UsefulNotes/AlCapone quote from '''Film/TheUntouchables'''.
* "Just off Arapahoe road on Emporia street" is the location given in radio commercials for The Shane Company, a diamond store in Denver.
* The computer in the van makes some '''Franchise/StarWars''' probe droid sounds when Kyle fades away.
* The scene where Kyle's fetus floats against the starry sky comes from the last scene in '''Film/TwoThousandOneASpaceOdyssey''', in which a Star Child with Mission Commander Dave Bowman's features floats through space.
[[/folder]]

[[folder: Cartman's Silly Hate Crime 2000]]
* They use music from '''{{Series/Oz}}''' for the juvenile hall scenes.
* Gruffy Bear is likely another reference to Smokey.
* No. 24601 is the number assigned to Jean Valjean when he arrived at Toulon Prison after being sentenced to five years of hard labor for breaking in and stealing a loaf of bread from a bakery in '''Literature/LesMiserables'''. (Even though the warden gives this number to Cartman, he wears number 26354 on his orange uniform.)
* The name of Cartman's cellmate, Romper Stomper, is a likely reference to the Australian film '''Film/RomperStomper''', about hate crime.
* The teardrop tattoo, such as Romper has, is a sign that the inmate has killed someone. Creator/JohnnyDepp wore one under his left eye in '''Film/CryBaby'''.
* The televised attempt by Cartman to evade the police in Kenny's Go Go Action Bronco is a parody of O.J. Simpson doing the same in a white Bronco.
* The two types of kids: those who like ''WesternAnimation/Animaniacs''' and those who don't.
[[/folder]]

[[folder: Timmy 2000]]
* Music/PhilCollins talks and acts in a manner similar to the Gumbies from '''Series/MontyPythonsFlyingCircus'''.
* The song that Music/PhilCollins sings at the opening to the Lalapalalapaza festival is a parody of his 1985 single ''Sussudio.''
* Collins is depicted as perpetually clutching an [[AcademyAward Oscar]]. This was in retaliation for Collins' victory in the category for Best Song three weeks prior to this episode's airing. ''You'll Be in My Heart'' beat the nominated ''Blame Canada'' from '''WesternAnimation/SouthParkBiggerLongerAndUncut'''.
[[/folder]]

[[folder: Quintuplets 2000]]
* The Cirque du Cheville is a Creator/CirqueDuSoleil parody.
* "Poofters" may come from the "Bruce" sketch on '''Series/MontyPythonsFlyingCircus'''. (It's a British term for homosexuals.)
* The storyline references both the then-current battle over the fate of Elián Gonzáles and the Depression-era Dionne Quintuplets of Canada.
* Literature/{{Madeline}} is seen in an airport after Kenny and his mother travel to Romania.
[[/folder]]

[[folder: Cartman Joins [=NAMBLA=] ]]
* The nightmare Kenny has about his impending sibling is a spoof on '''Film/ItsAlive''', about a mutant baby who goes on a rampage.
* The members of the National Association of Marlon Brando Look-Alikes are (unsurprisingly) nearly all dressed as characters played by Creator/MarlonBrando.
* [[ScoobyDoobyDoors The "musical rooms" chase through the hallway]] is reminiscent of those on the Creator/HannaBarbera cartoons such as ''Franchise/ScoobyDoo'' and also appeared in ''WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes''. The music in the scene is from a poem, Page d'Écriture written by Jacques Prévert.
* The sounds of the screaming people on The John Denver Experience are the screams heard on the computer game '''VideoGame/RollerCoasterTycoon'''.
[[/folder]]

[[folder: Cherokee Hair Tampons]]
* When Cartman refuses to donate a kidney to Kyle, he sings "no" to the tune of ''Comedy Tonight'' from '''Theatre/AFunnyThingHappenedOnTheWayToTheForum.'''
* The Native American/Mexicans are Creator/CheechAndChong.
* The title of Garrison's book ''In The Valley Of Penises'' spoofs '''Film/BeyondTheValleyOfTheDolls''', the X-rated 1969 movie for which RogerEbert wrote the screenplay. (Trey didn't much care for Ebert's review of '''South Park: Bigger, Longer, & Uncut''', citing Beyond The Valley Of The Dolls as a reason Ebert should have been more positive in his review.)
* When Cartman wakes up to find his kidney missing, his bed is covered in blood and the Kidney Blocker 2000 ripped off his body. This scene is much like the death of Khartoum in '''Film/TheGodfather'''.
[[/folder]]

[[folder: Chef Goes Nanners]]
* One KKK member lifts up his robe to reveal a pair of bird feet, similar to that of [[Series/SesameStreet Big Bird.]]
* When Wendy kisses Cartman, his reaction is similar to that of Luke Skywalker in '''Film/TheEmpireStrikesBack''' after being kissed by Leia. Stan's might be similar to Han Solo's, though his shock goes on a bit longer.
[[/folder]]

[[folder: Something You Can Do With Your Finger]]
* The obvious parody here is of {{boy band}}s, particularly *Music/{{NSYNC}} and the Music/BackstreetBoys, who were highly popular at the time.
** Randy's band in the flashbacks is a parody of the band Music/NewKidsOnTheBlock. The group that defined the boy band genre.
* The boy playing the piano at the auditions is Schroeder, the Beethoven aficionado from '''ComicStrip/{{Peanuts}}'''.
* Randy's fit of rage, ending in him smashing the glass doors of the living room cabinet and shouting "No! Nooo!!" is very similar to a scene in '''Film/StarTrekFirstContact''', where Captain Picard does the same, using a phaser rather than his head to smash a display case. In fact, Randy's voice changes from Parker's to a sampling of Creator/PatrickStewart's voice from the film.
* During Randy's flashback, the manager of his band closely resembles J. Jonah Jameson from '''Comicbook/SpiderMan'''.
* Randy's choir is singing a classic cowboy song entitled [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M8ZTDyzNZFU "Colorado Trail."]]
[[/folder]]

[[folder: Do The Handicapped Go To Hell?]]
* Guests shown in Hell include Creator/ConanOBrien (who died in TheMovie) [[Music/TheGratefulDead Jerry Garcia]], Gene Siskel, JohnFKennedy and his son JFK Junior, Music/TinyTim, [[TheHouseOfWindsor Princess Diana]], [[Series/HighwayToHeaven Michael Landon]], [[UsefulNotes/WhyMaoChangedHisName Mao Tse Tung]], Walter Matthau, Creator/GeorgeBurns, Music/DeanMartin, and Creator/BobHope.
* The 'Hukilau' song is a real Hawaiian song about the traditional event of net-casting.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Probably]]
* During the "PreviouslyOn" recap at the beginning of the episode, a reference is made to the '''Series/HappyDays''' episode where Fonzie [[JumpingTheShark jumped the shark.]]
* The repeated line throughout this episode, "Yeah, well, where was I going to go? Detroit?" was from the cult film '''Film/TheKentuckyFriedMovie'''.
* [[ComicStrip/{{Peanuts}} Schroeder]] makes another appearance, as the organist for Cartman's church.
[[/folder]]

[[folder: Fourth Grade]]
* "Charade you are!" is from the Music/PinkFloyd song ''Pigs.''
* Timmy's chair not being able to go under 5 or it will explode is a parody of '''Film/{{Speed}}'''. The defuse that Kenny attempts with the wheeled board is a reference to the scene in which Jack Traven attempts the same with a service cart towed by a preceding truck. The reference is furthered by the woman who rides on Timmy's lap for a short time, who looks much like SandraBullock.
* Garrison and Choksondik have an exchange that echoes Luke and Yoda in '''Film/TheEmpireStrikesBack''', when Choksondik proclaims she isn't afraid, and Garrison says, "You will be. You will be." The parallel continues with the large hollow tree used as part of the training, containing only the demons they take in with them.
* The response to Cartman's taunts of "Suck my balls" with "Present them," references a portion of the book''' Educating Esmé,''' in which a mentor tells a student to drop his pants after he continually exclaims "suck my dick."
* "Spirit, haunt me no longer!" is a reference to '''Literature/AChristmasCarol''', when the Ghost of Christmas Past shows Scrooge a Christmas from his childhood.
[[/folder]]

[[folder: Trapper Keeper]]
* "Bill Cosby," [=VSM471=], is a compilation of movie references:
** He and his plotline are a spoof on '''Franchise/{{Terminator}}''', with clothing similar to that of Kyle Reese in the first film and a soundalike of the theme from the films plays when Cosby reveals his true nature. His continued pronunciation of human as “hu-mon” is a reference to the Ferengi of '''Franchise/StarTrek'''. The white fluid that comes out of his body is like that of the android in '''Film/{{Alien}}'''.
* During the retelling of future events, other than references to the '''Terminator''' movies, some of the war machines also resemble the ED-209 from the '''Franchise/RoboCop''' movies. (except with a large '''Series/DawsonsCreek''' photo as a torso.)
* The Cartman-shaped bio-mechanical blob monster is a reference to the anime film '''Manga/{{Akira}}''', as is the fashion in which Rosie O’Donnell is killed. The music playing when the Trapper Keeper moves toward the base resembles the music played when Akira awakens to stop Tetsuo.
* The line "We are Trapper Keeper" is a reference to the Borg of '''Franchise/StarTrek'''.
* When Kyle is sucked into the mutated Cartman, the room where the Trapper Keeper's CPU is located looks exactly like HAL's CPU racks in '''Film/TwoThousandOneASpaceOdyssey'''. The Trapper Keeper's dialogue with a Kyle is also taken from the film.
* When Cartman crashes the police cruiser into Cosby, he says "Book 'em, Barbrady," a reference to the line "Book 'em, Danno," off the show '''Series/HawaiiFiveO'''.
[[/folder]]

[[folder: Hellen Keller! The Musical]]
* The scenes in which Butters runs down the hallway to the auditorium come straight out of '''Film/TheRightStuff''' whenever the Russians launched a new rocket.
* Timmy picking out his turkey is like Charlie Brown picking the pathetic little tree in '''WesternAnimation/ACharlieBrownChristmas'''. He took it back to everyone else and they said "What the hell is that?" just like the SP gang did.
* The visions Cartman sees when he closes his eyes are a tribute to '''Film/AClockworkOrange''' when Alex comes home the first night and closes his eyes: 'And oh what lovely pictures I did see.' It is all violent stuff - hangings, explosions, Alex as a Vampire, etc. The Nazi footage is stuff that Alex is forced to watch later in the film.
* The way Timmy abandons his beloved pet turkey is very similar to a scene in '''Film/AirBud'''. In the movie a young boy takes his golden retriever out away from his house and walks away from the dog with tears in his eyes. (According to the [[WordOfGod commentary]], Gobbles was originally a puppy)
* The turkey mass slaughter scene "Our turkeys are killed humanely" comes from '''Film/SoylentGreen'''.
* Timmy performs a feat right out of '''Film/InTheLineOfFire''' (and other films) when he dives out of his chair and takes a bullet for Gobbles.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Pip]]
* '''Series/MasterpieceTheatre''' is parodied in this episode. The music playing during those segments is from Vivaldi's The Four Seasons: Spring.
* The basic plot is indeed that of the Creator/CharlesDickens novel '''Literature/GreatExpectations'''.
* One of the blacksmith's creations is a "metal orange", a nod to Creator/MalcolmMcDowell ("The Narrator" in this episode), who is most famous for his portrayal of Alex [=DeLarge=] in the Stanley Kubrick film, '''Film/AClockworkOrange'''.
* The name "Genesis Device" is lifted from '''Film/StarTrekIITheWrathOfKhan''' and '''Film/StarTrekIIITheSearchForSpock''', part of the Genesis Project, the device used to bring new Edenic life to an otherwise unsuitable planet.
[[/folder]]

[[folder: Fat Camp]]
* The line "healthy and clean" may be a reference to Music/PinkFloyd's ''Music/TheWall''; "Momma's gonna keep baby healthy and clean."
* James Taylor's ''Your Smiling Face'' is parodied.
* Cartman escaping and being returned to camp until he's done his time seems to come from '''Film/CoolHandLuke'''.
* Kenny's stunts are similar to those performed on '''Series/{{Jackass}}''' and by Tom Green.
* Kenny eating dog crap is a possible reference to the infamous ending of '''Film/PinkFlamingos'''.
[[/folder]]

[[folder: The Wacky Molestation Adventure]]
* The song sung by Kyle heard while he writes Castro resembles ''Blue Christmas'', which was the song heard as Santa read a young girl’s letter in '''WesternAnimation/TheYearWithoutASantaClaus'''. The letter and crayon drawings are also a reference.
* Kyle [[RiskyBusinessDance dancing in his underwear]] is straight out of '''Film/RiskyBusiness'''.
* The scene when the kids are standing in the town alone when they first figured out the parents were all gone comes from '''Film/TheOmegaMan''', about the man being the last one on earth.
* The town taken over by kids was a reference to '''Film/ChildrenOfTheCorn1984''', which features human sacrifice and a couple getting stuck in a town full of sinister children who have killed their parents. The woman is taken hostage and the man called "Outlander," by those holding his girlfriend captive.
* "We already played with our parents. Now we wanna play with you," is a paraphrase of a child in '''Literature/PetSematary'''.
* The splitting into two tribes could be a reference to '''Literature/LordOfTheFlies'''.
* Craig is referred to as Spaceman Spiff, a shout-out to '''ComicStrip/CalvinAndHobbes'''.
* There are many references to '''Film/MadMaxBeyondThunderdome''' in this episode, especially the story told about "the before time."
* The reference to 'Carousel' comes from '''Film/LogansRun'''.
[[/folder]]

[[folder: A Very Crappy Christmas]]
* '''Disney/TheLionKing''' song, ''The Circle of Life'' is parodied here, complete with scenery.
* '''WesternAnimation/ACharlieBrownChristmas''', referenced often in the show, is directly parodied here, with the boys shown watching it.
* Schroeder, from '''ComicStrip/{{Peanuts}}''', is seen playing the music for the recording of The Spirit of Christmas.
* ''Even a Miracle Needs a Hand'' comes from the Rankin/Bass animated TV film, '''WesternAnimation/TwasTheNightBeforeChristmas'''. Mister Hanky's family mirrors the family of mice, with the eldest child questioning the concept of Christmas.
[[/folder]]

[[WMG: '''Season Five:''']]

[[folder: It Hits The Fan]]
* The show everyone is talking about is likely referencing '''Series/ChicagoHope''', on which a character said, "Shit happens." (It's worth noting that Chicago Hope was not a "Cop Drama," and the [[WordOfGod commentary]] incorrectly attributes the uncensored expletive to '''Series/NYPDBlue'''.)
* Mr. Garrison's song parodies '''Film/ChittyChittyBangBang'''.
* The red haired man at Excalibur looked like Eric Idle and the wizard there looked like Tim from '''Film/MontyPythonAndTheHolyGrail'''. When the knight died he did that long "ahhhhh", like the inscription on a cave wall in Holy Grail when one of the character dies.
* The dragon, Geldon, bears a certain resemblance to [[http://images4.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20101222025309/disney/images/4/4f/Maleficent_Dragon_-Wallpaper-_copy.jpg Maleficent]] of '''[[Disney/SleepingBeauty Disney's Sleeping Beauty]]''' (who also appears as a villain in '''Franchise/KingdomHearts'''.)
[[/folder]]

[[folder: Cripple Fight]]
* The fight between Timmy and Jimmy is nearly shot-for-shot the fight scene between Wrestling/RoddyPiper and Creator/KeithDavid in Creator/JohnCarpenter's '''Film/TheyLive'''.
* The Mountain Scouts' branding as a hate group is a reference to the Boy Scouts of America v. Dale case in 2000. Creator/StevenSpielberg said at the time that he was no longer proud to be a Scout.
* Jimmy's impressions include Creator/JimmyStewart in '''Film/ItsAWonderfulLife''' with "Merry Christmas movie house" and Creator/JohnTravolta in '''Series/WelcomeBackKotter''' with "Oh my God Mr Kotter! Mr Kotter, oh my God!".
[[/folder]]

[[folder: Super Best Friends]]
* The Super Best Friends themselves are an homage to the Franchise/{{Justice League|OfAmerica}}.
* The boys going door-to-door is very similar to Mormon missionaries in Parker and Stone's film '''Film/{{Orgazmo}}.'''
* The Blaintology headquarters are modeled after the site of the mass cult suicide in Waco, Texas. The bed covers on the bunks are purple, a possible reference to Heaven's Gate, the cult that committed suicide when the Hale-Bopp comet came around.
[[/folder]]

[[folder: Scott Tenorman Must Die]]
* The plot of this episode contains elements of Shakespeare's '''Theatre/TitusAndronicus'''. This episode also echoes the story of Thyestes in Greek mythology, whose sons are killed and fed to him by his brother Atreus.
* As in "Cat Orgy" and "4th Grade", Cartman quotes Pink Floyd's song ''Pigs (Three Different Ones'') by taunting "Ha ha, charade you are!"
* Cartman's gathering the other kids in his basement and telling them about his plan to get rid of Scott Tenorman is based on Pee Wee's speech to an uninterested crowd about the theft of his bike in '''Film/PeeWeesBigAdventure'''.
* "You may take our pride, but you'll never take my Goddamned sixteen dollars and twelve cents" is a '''Film/{{Braveheart}}''' paraphrase.
* Kenny dying in this episode is similar to the way the Weasels die in '''Film/WhoFramedRogerRabbit'''; laughing so hard they die and then their ghosts rising up laughing as well.
* When Cartman arrives in Ft. Collins a boy delivers a box to him. Cartman opens the box and is horrified to find more pubes. This is a reference to the end of '''Film/{{Se7en}}''', when Detective Mills receives a delivery box in the middle of nowhere and opens it to find his murdered wife's head.
* Cartman's "That's all Folks!" parody of WesternAnimation/PorkyPig at the end of the episode is [[FridgeBrilliance possibly a reference to an earlier event in the episode in which Cartman gets on his knees and sings "I'm a little piggy, here's my snout..." to the tune of "I'm a Little Teapot".]]
[[/folder]]

[[folder: Terrance & Phillip: Behind the Blow]]
* The most obvious reference is the parody of Creator/VH1's '''Behind The Music.'''
* The heads of the Earth Day Brainwashing organization waving their forearms in an arc are a reference to the Jedi masters in the '''Franchise/StarWars''' movies, who can override a person's intentions with a wave of the arm and a suggestion.
* "Who Farted?" is a spoof of the Creator/AbbottAndCostello sketch "WhosOnFirst"
* The '''Theatre/{{Hamlet}}''' scene is more or less line-for-line.
* The Terrance & Phillip Saturday morning cartoon is a parody of '''WesternAnimation/StarTrekTheAnimatedSeries'''.
* Kenny being chopped up piece by piece references the decimation of the Black Knight in '''Film/MontyPythonAndTheHolyGrail'''.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Cartmanland]]
* Cartman's {{Distant Reaction S|hot}}cream when he found out he just got a million dollars is based on the famous "severed horse head" scene from '''Film/TheGodfather'''.
* Cartman's rant about lines, lines, lines is almost shot-for-shot from the animated '''WesternAnimation/HowTheGrinchStoleChristmas''' when he rages about noise, noise, noise. The rhythm of his dialogue also mirrors the writing style of Dr. Seuss, with rhyming and a certain amount of nonsense, plus the Dr. Seuss style art with the spotted strawberry, and the Dr. Seuss character playing the bizarre instrument.
[[/folder]]

[[folder: Proper Condom Use]]
* The girls' fortress and the stand-off is a reference to '''[[Film/MadMax The Road Warrior]]''', with Butters playing The Humungus and Kenny being killed by a bladed boomerang.
-->'''Butters:''' ''(in a deep, raspy voice through the mike)'' Just walk away. You can put a stop to all this. Just walk away and we will spare your lives. Just walk away.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Towelie]]
* The idea of high-tech, important towels seems to reference '''Franchise/TheHitchhikersGuideToTheGalaxy'''. The talking towel concept could be borrowed from '''ComicStrip/{{Doonesbury}}''' comic strips, with characters such as the talking cigarette butt.
* Cartman says a few lines from '''Film/SlingBlade''' ("You shouldn't'a done that, he's just a boy," and "poor little feller") with an accent similar to that in the movie, when referring to Stan's mom's tampon he found in the trash. His line about it being "not for usin', it's just for lookin' through" is from '''Film/TheOutlawJoseyWales'''.
* The way Towelie says, "Wanna get high?" harkens to the Creator/CheechAndChong movie '''Film/UpInSmoke''', in which Chong is teaching a bird to say the same phrase.
* One of the soldiers suggests that the four boys may have a telepathic link with Towelie, like '''[[Film/ETTheExtraTerrestrial E.T.]]'''
* When Towelie gets high we hear the music played in '''ComicStrip/{{Popeye}}''' when the titular character eats spinach.
* The failed Towelie clone that they discover at the military base is a reference to the failed Ripley Clone from '''Film/AlienResurrection'''.
* Kenny's death by lava and the new, buffed-up Towelie reference '''Terminator2JudgmentDay'''. Also, Tynacorp looks like Cyberdyne Systems.
* Kyle reaching for the Game Sphere while hanging above magma is a reference to '''Film/IndianaJonesAndTheLastCrusade''', in which Indie strains to reach the Holy Grail.
* The [[BlandNameProduct Okama GameSphere]] seems to be a reference to the NintendoGamecube which was being hyped for release at the time the episode first aired.
* The soldiers in this episode aren't so much a reference to the HECU soldiers from '''VideoGame/{{Half-Life|1}}''' as they are completely based off of them in appearance.
[[/folder]]

[[folder: Osama Bin Laden Has Farty Pants]]
* Cartman makes a reference to "Sand People," though the characters shown are actually closer to ''Jawas''. Both are from '''Franchise/StarWars'''.
* The majority of the homages in this episode came from old WesternAnimation/BugsBunny cartoons:
** "What's up doc?" and the various Osama/Elmer Fudd take-offs. Both Bugs and Daffy regularly delighted in crossdressing for and kissing their opponents. Cartman's smart-ass AsideGlance to the camera while Bin Laden dined with the camel is something Bugs would do quite often under the direction of Creator/ChuckJones. The signs ("screw-ball", etc) Cartman holds up at one point can be found often in these cartoons, although they never got quite as vulgar. The "Tiny, Isn't It" gag was a standard in director Creator/BobClampett's cartoons. In a series of MGM cartoons directed by Creator/TexAvery, a wolf would lose control over a sexy redhead and go off in a series of wild poses called "takes". The takes of Bin Laden when he sees a dolled-up Cartman are direct parodies of this.
** Some references to specific WWII-vintage Merrie Melodies in this episode:
*** In "Herr Meets Hare" (1945) a Nazi soldier battles Bugs Bunny. At one point Bugs arrives in drag as Brunhilde, riding a horse. Cartman's entrance in drag astride a camel could be a take-off of this. Bugs did the identical gimmick in the "Ride of the Valkyrie" cartoon.
*** One gag was taken from a Bob Clampett cartoon titled "Russian Rhapsody", which dealt with Adolf Hitler. In this cartoon, the plane he is piloting is attacked by an army of small Russian gremlins, who proceed to demolish the plane, plummeting Hitler to his grave. His last line in the cartoon is, "Nutzies in de cwaziest people." Bin Laden's last line in this episode is an echo of this.
* Stan putting his jacket around the base of the flag is much like Linus putting his blanket around the bottom of the Christmas tree in the '''Peanuts''' ChristmasSpecial.
[[/folder]]

[[folder: How To Eat With Your Butt]]
* The hair sticking up on Butters' head is reminiscent of Alfalfa from '''TheLittleRascals'''.
[[/folder]]

[[folder: The Entity]]
* "Cousin Kyle" is a deadpan parody of Creator/WoodyAllen.
* The scene with the two old ladies at the Grand Canyon with the narrator asking them how they got there is a reference to Hoveround wheelchair commercials in which two old ladies got to the Grand Canyon with them.
[[/folder]]

[[folder: Here Comes The Neighborhood]]
* Creator/WillSmith saying he could finally live like a cowboy was a rip on his film '''Film/WildWildWest'''.
* Aslan is from '''Literature/TheChroniclesOfNarnia''', and his design in this episode is nearly identical to his appearance in the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E8zCqjz1Edw animated adaptation.]] The way Aslan talked, though, is much like King Moonracer, the ruler of the Island of Misfit Toys from the animated '''WesternAnimation/RudolphTheRedNosedReindeer'''.
[[/folder]]

[[folder: Kenny Dies]]
* "I love Kenny [=McCormick=] and... I want you to love him too." refers to a similar line from '''Brian's Song''', "I love Brian Piccolo....and I want you all to love him too."
* Butters' picture is a '''very''' subtle reference to the first verse of Meat Loaf's song "Objects In The Rear View Mirror". Compare the [[http://www.dailymotion.com/video/xqj6x_objects-in-the-rear-view-mirror_music music video]].
[[/folder]]

[[folder: Butters' Very Own Episode]]
* The scene at the restaurant, where Simpson, the Ramseys, and Condit start chanting, "One of us, one of us, gooble gobble, gooble gobble", is an homage to a famous scene in the horror film, '''{{Film/Freaks}}'''.
* The old man that tells Butters about the walk back to South Park is based on old man Jud from '''Literature/PetSematary''', who explains the history of the path to the Indian burial ground, with notably similar dialogue.
* As Butters begins to walk down the dark road, the trees take on an appearance reminiscent of '''Film/TheWizardOfOz''', as facial features appear on them. Butters also encounters a Franchise/{{Predator}} on his way back to South Park.
* The events of the episode parallel the well-publicized case of Susan Smith, who drowned her children and claimed they'd been abducted by a black guy.

[[WMG: '''Season One:''']]

[[folder: Cartman Gets An Anal Probe]]
* The 'School Days' song was a hit in 1907 and 1908, first recorded by Byron G. Harlan.
* Stan's humongous smile and floating hearts when he sees Wendy is very reminiscent of Charlie Brown's when he sees the little red-haired girl.
* "Cows on a people train" references an obscure Creator/DrSeuss book entitled '''In A People House''', which he wrote under the pseudonym "Theo [=LeSeig=]"
* The song "I Love to Singa" is from the 1936 Creator/TexAvery [[WesternAnimation/ILoveToSinga cartoon of the same name]]. One of the characters is a 'tasteless' crooning owl named Owl Jolson, one of four hatchlings born to the parent owls.
* Kyle tells Ike, "Do your impersonation of David Caruso's career" referring to his career after '''Series/NYPDBlue''' - it took a dive and didn't recover until ''Series/CSIMiami'', more than a decade later. Ike takes a dive head first into the snow.
[[/folder]]

[[folder: Weight-Gain 4000]]
* Mr. Hat's [[ExorcistHead spinning head]] echoes that from '''Film/TheExorcist'''.
* Kathie Lee's song is the one she sang for Carnival Cruise lines. The song is originally from '''Sweet Charity.'''
* Garrison and Mr. Hat arguing is a likely parody of the film '''Magic''', where a ventriloquist has multiple personality disorder, and argues with his puppet.
* When Cartman says "Beefcake - beefCAAKE!" it sounds like Torrence from '''Literature/TheShining''' when he yells "Redrum-redRUUM!"
* Mr. Garrison's "Are you talking to me?" line is from '''Film/TaxiDriver'''.
* As Mr. Garrison walks down the street with his new purchase, everyone calls out "Nice gun". This is similar to a scene in '''Doc Hollywood,''' in which the title character walks down the street with a new pig given to him as payment for a doctor's visit. Everyone comments, "(that sure is a) Nice pig, Doc" etc.
* "It is…too late for me, young Wendy." was paraphrased from Darth Vader in '''Film/ReturnOfTheJedi'''.
* An oft-repeated line in '''Franchise/ScoobyDoo''' was, "And I would have gotten away with it, too, if it weren't for those meddling kids!" This line was echoed by Garrison/Mr. Hat when he's being arrested.
* The manuscript for '''Walden''' by Creator/HenryDavidThoreau is passed off by Cartman as his own essay simply by crossing out Thoreau's name and writing his own.
* Cartman appears on '''Geraldo.'''
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Volcano]]
* Cartman's mention of '''Series/StepByStep''' could be considered a shout-out.
** Well considering one of the stars of that show was Patrick Duffy, whom Scuzzlebutt had for a leg...
* The episode as a whole is [[WordOfGod said]] to be a rip on the eruption disaster movies that were coming out around that time; specifically '''Film/{{Volcano}}''' and '''Film/DantesPeak'''.
* Cartman's mention of Danforth could easily be a shout-out to '''Rambo: First Blood.''' John {{Franchise/Rambo}} serves with a soldier named Danforth.
* The ''Lava and You'' film is a clear parody of 1950s nuclear safety films, which suggested "duck and cover" as an effective tactic when under nuclear attack.
* Scuzzlebutt sounds exactly like Ludo from '''Film/{{Labyrinth}}''' when he says, "Friend."
[[/folder]]

[[folder: Big Gay Al's Big Gay Boat Ride]]
* "Would you like some toasted cheese sandwiches?" is an homage to one of the '''Film/{{Psycho}}''' movies; Norman Bates tells Mary Loomis that she smells like the toasted cheese sandwiches his mother used to bring him.
* When Stan and Sparky are leaving Big Gay Al's, Al says "When you get back to town, tell them about us, will you? Tell them there are gay animals here who need homes, desperately." This is the same thing the Winged Lion says about the Misfit Toys to Rudolph and the Dentist Elf, in the '''WesternAnimation/RudolphTheRedNosedReindeer''' stop-motion Christmas special, before they leave the Island and return to Santa.

[[/folder]]

[[folder:Death]]

[[/folder]]

[[folder:Pinkeye]]

* The canned food drive based on '''The Cash Grab.'''
* The end battle spoofs '''Film/{{Braveheart}}'''.

[[/folder]]

[[folder: Mr. Hankey the Christmas Poo]]
* Stan's speech is directly from '''WesternAnimation/ACharlieBrownChristmas''', as is the opening of the scene of catching snowflakes; "Try and catch snowflakes on your tongue. It's fun!"
* With his stylized eyes, white gloves, and high voice, Mr. Hankey is reminiscent of MickeyMouse.
* Mackey calls Kyle a "sick little monkey," an oft-used line on '''WesternAnimation/TheRenAndStimpyShow'''.
* Kyle carrying Mr. Hankey in a box and his initial inactivity in the presence of others causing Kyle to be put in an asylum is similar to plot devices around Michigan J. Frog from '''OneFroggyEvening'''.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Damien]]
* The whole episode has myriad references to '''Film/TheOmen''', not the least of which is the title character.
* The Megaman toys are based on '''Franchise/PowerRangers.''' They were actually going to be Power Ranger toys in an early script draft, but the Comedy Central legal team asked that the name be changed to avoid copyright issues.

*** And they all have their own song, just as the Japanese monsters do.

[[/folder]]

[[WMG: '''Season Two:''']]

[[folder: Not Without My Anus]]
* Title is a reference to the film (and book) '''Not Without My Daughter'''. In the episode, Terrence needs to rescue his daughter.

* Saddam Hussein and Scott paraphrase Darth Vader and Lando in '''Film/TheEmpireStrikesBack'''. (Hussein says, "I changed my mind. Pray that I do not change it any more," to which Scott mutters, "This deal's getting worse all the time." In '''Empire''', Vader says, "I am altering the deal, pray I do not alter it any further." to which Lando mutters the same phrase as Scott, "This deal is getting worse all the time.")
[[/folder]]

[[folder: Cartman's Mom Is Still A Dirty Slut]]
* Chef states he used to watch '''{{Series/Quincy}}'''.
* Kenny's journey to the 'backup generator' and the mention of 'velociraptors' reference '''Franchise/JurassicPark'''. A shadow of a dinosaur can be seen on the generator, later.

* Cannibalism under extreme conditions was the subject of '''Film/{{Alive}}''', which also featured the song ''Ave Maria''.
[[/folder]]

[[/folder]]

[[folder: The Mexican Staring Frog of Southern Sri Lanka]]
* Episode title could easily be based on the Creator/MarkTwain short story '''The Celebrated Jumping Frog of Calaveras County.'''
* "A question a child might ask, but not a childish question." - Garrison's line comes from a commercial for the History of the Vietnam War book series. In the commercial, a man and his son stand before the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington, DC. The son looks up, and asks "Daddy, what's Vietnam?" A voiceover somberly intones "A question a child might ask - but not a childish question."
* "…but Pony Boy was beat up pretty bad. He kept saying, 'stay gold.'" - this is from Chapter 9 of '''TheOutsiders''', by S. E. Hinton, a short novel about four friends who were in a gang. Only there, it was Ponyboy's friend who was in the hospital, and Ponyboy was visiting him. His friend dies saying these words: "Stay gold, Ponyboy. Stay gold."
* Jesus and Pals becomes a parody of '''JerrySpringer''', complete with chanting crowd and manufactured fights. One audience member thinks he's on '''Montel Williams'''.
* While the boys are in detention trying to come up with a revenge plan against Jimbo and Ned, Kyle asks if they've seen "that one '''Series/TheBradyBunch''' where the guy...". Most likely he's referring to the 5th-season episode "Out of This World" where Greg tricks his brothers into thinking there's a UFO in the sky.
[[/folder]]

[[folder: City On The Edge Of Forever]]
* The little kid who is killed by the monster is a '''Franchise/StarTrek''' RedShirt. The title of the episode is also from Star Trek.

* The scene of the bus breaking in half and the boy falling out through the rear window is partially derived from '''Film/TheLostWorldJurassicPark''', when the dinosaurs had pushed the trailers almost over the cliff. The lead actors hold on to the interior of the rear trailer as debris falls past them and out the back window and door. A similar effect is shown in '''Film/{{Titanic}}''', when passengers let go of railings and fall to their deaths (note that the bus, like the ship, has split in two.)
* The video made by the parents echoes "Music/WeAreTheWorld."
* One of the flashbacks parodies the infamous "Fonzie Jumps the Shark" episode of Series/HappyDays.
** Actually, it's a reference to the earlier, better episode (the shark was probably a failed attempt to remake past success). In that episode, Fonzie lost his 'coolness' and decided he could get it back if he set a new world record by jumping 14 school buses on his motorcycle. Naturally, the episode ended on a cliffhanger (with Fonzie in midair over the buses, no less), leading to a 'Last time, on Happy Days' opening. Unlike the Hawaii...saga (it was, like, 4 episodes), the whole thing was PlayedForLaughs, rather than drama.

* Mr. Hanky echoes [[Franchise/StarWars Yoda]] when he's dying, saying "There is... another... Sky...walker."

* The segment beginning with the medic who scoops Mr. Hanky up and ending when Mr. Hanky is revived by Chef's chocolate salty balls comes from '''Film/ETTheExtraterrestrial''', beginning when Elliott's house is quarantined and ending when Elliott unzips E.T. to find him alive and well.

[[/folder]]

[[folder:Spookyfish]]

The portal references the episode ''Assignment: Earth'' and the fight between the two Cartmans references ''Whom Gods Destroy'', where a shapeshifter takes on Kirk's appearance and Kirk tells Spock he must kill them both. Throughout the episode, the crappy 'split screen' effect can be seen.

* The way Stan deals with his spooky goldfish comes from '''Film/{{Poltergeist}}''', when a boy is afraid of a clown doll.

* The IndianBurialGround pet store references '''Literature/PetSematary''', in which pets buried there come back evil.
* Stan's statement, "I never thought it was such a bad little squash, it just needs some tender loving care" is a paraphrase from '''WesternAnimation/ACharlieBrownChristmas''' about the little tree.
[[/folder]]

[[folder: Merry Christmas, Charlie Manson]]

* Miss Stevens strung up between two trees and the giant Yanogapa rising from the brush is an homage to '''Film/KingKong'''.

[[/folder]]

[[folder: Spontaneous Combustion]]
* The two lines spoken right after crucified Cartman is taken out of the church come from '''Film/MontyPythonsTheMeaningOfLife'''.

Later, he finds out that it was all a dream and he is still dying on the cross.
* Stan does the [[Franchise/StarTrek vulcan sign]] with his hand while quoting Spock's, "The needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few."
* The song ''You and Me, Girl'' is reminiscent of '''{{WesternAnimation/The Archie|Show}}s.''' The visuals are reminiscent of both Archie music videos and '''Franchise/ScoobyDoo'''.
[[/folder]]

[[folder: The Succubus]]

* The horn music before the first fight is definite '''Film/{{Rocky}}'''.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Jakovasaurs]]

[[/folder]]

[[folder: Sexual Harassment Panda]]
* Gerald's commercials come straight from the Larry H. Parker commercials seen in Southern California: Bebe's spot comes from the commercial in which this man sits proudly on his motorcycle as he says "Larry H. Parker got me 2.1 million." (These sorts of lawyer commercials can actually be seen all over the country)

[[/folder]]

[[folder: Cat Orgy]]
* The obvious reference is to '''Film/WildWildWest'''.
* Another clear shout-out is to '''Film/{{Aliens}}'''.
* The Wild Animal World segment Kitty watches on TV is the same one used in '''Film/NaturalBornKillers''', when Harrelson watches TV in a hotel room. (Note: this may or may not be a stock footage coincidence.)
* "Charade you are!" is from the Music/PinkFloyd song ''Pigs.''
* "Hurry, kitty, you're my only hope." - likely a reference to Leia's plea to Obi-Wan in '''Franchise/StarWars: Film/ANewHope'''.

[[folder: Two Guys Naked In A Hot Tub]]

[[/folder]]

* The obvious reference is of course to '''{{Franchise/Pokemon}}''' (which means 'pocket monster.' Chinpokomon means 'little penis monster.')
** There were reports of a Pokémon episode, ''Electric Porygon Soldier'', causing seizures in some children. As a result, [[MissingEpisode the episode never aired in the United States]]. Kenny's seizure is a reference to this.
* The scene in which Sharon tells Mr. Garrison to "Get on the wire to every parent around the country and tell them how to bring those sons of bitches down!" is derived from '''Film/IndependenceDay'''.
[[/folder]]

[[folder: Starvin Marvin In Space]]
* The wormhole is right out of '''Series/StarTrekDeepSpaceNine''', as is the warping movement the Marklar ship experiences in the wormhole. The Marklar ship turns out to have a computer with a female voice, just like the Enterprise ships and Voyager do, and it is armed with photon torpedoes.
* Sally Struthers appears here as [[Franchise/StarWars Jabba the Hutt]] with her very own Tiberian Junker, and Kenny is frozen in carbonate.

One fan even [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i1clpQ0SkIs combined the latter with clips from this film]], and they go together perfectly. Given that Stone and Parker are huge fans of musical theater, this probably wasn't lost on them.

[[folder: Tooth Fairy Tats 2000]]
* Loogie is clearly patterned after Vito Corleone in '''Film/TheGodfather'''.

* [[ScoobyDoobyDoors The "musical rooms" chase through the hallway]] is reminiscent of those on the Creator/HannaBarbera cartoons such as ''Franchise/ScoobyDoo'' and also appeared in ''WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes''. The music in the scene is from a poem, Page d'Écriture written by Jacques Prévert.

* When Cartman refuses to donate a kidney to Kyle, he sings "no" to the tune of ''Comedy Tonight'' from '''Theatre/AFunnyThingHappenedOnTheWayToTheForum.'''
* The Native American/Mexicans are Creator/CheechAndChong.
* The title of Garrison's book ''In The Valley Of Penises'' spoofs '''Film/BeyondTheValleyOfTheDolls''', the X-rated 1969 movie for which RogerEbert wrote the screenplay. (Trey didn't much care for Ebert's review of '''South Park: Bigger, Longer, & Uncut''', citing Beyond The Valley Of The Dolls as a reason Ebert should have been more positive in his review.)
* When Cartman wakes up to find his kidney missing, his bed is covered in blood and the Kidney Blocker 2000 ripped off his body. This scene is much like the death of Khartoum in '''Film/TheGodfather'''.
[[/folder]]

[[folder: Chef Goes Nanners]]
* One KKK member lifts up his robe to reveal a pair of bird feet, similar to that of [[Series/SesameStreet Big Bird.]]
* When Wendy kisses Cartman, his reaction is similar to that of Luke Skywalker in '''Film/TheEmpireStrikesBack''' after being kissed by Leia. Stan's might be similar to Han Solo's, though his shock goes on a bit longer.
[[/folder]]

[[folder: Something You Can Do With Your Finger]]
* The obvious parody here is of {{boy band}}s, particularly *Music/{{NSYNC}} and the Music/BackstreetBoys, who were highly popular at the time.
** Randy's band in the flashbacks is a parody of the band Music/NewKidsOnTheBlock. The group that defined the boy band genre.
* The boy playing the piano at the auditions is Schroeder, the Beethoven aficionado from '''ComicStrip/{{Peanuts}}'''.
* Randy's fit of rage, ending in him smashing the glass doors of the living room cabinet and shouting "No! Nooo!!" is very similar to a scene in '''Film/StarTrekFirstContact''', where Captain Picard does the same, using a phaser rather than his head to smash a display case. In fact, Randy's voice changes from Parker's to a sampling of Creator/PatrickStewart's voice from the film.
* During Randy's flashback, the manager of his band closely resembles J. Jonah Jameson from '''Comicbook/SpiderMan'''.
* Randy's choir is singing a classic cowboy song entitled [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M8ZTDyzNZFU "Colorado Trail."]]
[[/folder]]

[[folder: Do The Handicapped Go To Hell?]]
* Guests shown in Hell include Creator/ConanOBrien (who died in TheMovie) [[Music/TheGratefulDead Jerry Garcia]], Gene Siskel, JohnFKennedy and his son JFK Junior, Music/TinyTim, [[TheHouseOfWindsor Princess Diana]], [[Series/HighwayToHeaven Michael Landon]], [[UsefulNotes/WhyMaoChangedHisName Mao Tse Tung]], Walter Matthau, Creator/GeorgeBurns, Music/DeanMartin, and Creator/BobHope.
* The 'Hukilau' song is a real Hawaiian song about the traditional event of net-casting.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Probably]]
* During the "PreviouslyOn" recap at the beginning of the episode, a reference is made to the '''Series/HappyDays''' episode where Fonzie [[JumpingTheShark jumped the shark.]]
* The repeated line throughout this episode, "Yeah, well, where was I going to go? Detroit?" was from the cult film '''Film/TheKentuckyFriedMovie'''.
* [[ComicStrip/{{Peanuts}} Schroeder]] makes another appearance, as the organist for Cartman's church.
[[/folder]]

[[folder: Fourth Grade]]
* "Charade you are!" is from the Music/PinkFloyd song ''Pigs.''
* Timmy's chair not being able to go under 5 or it will explode is a parody of '''Film/{{Speed}}'''. The defuse that Kenny attempts with the wheeled board is a reference to the scene in which Jack Traven attempts the same with a service cart towed by a preceding truck. The reference is furthered by the woman who rides on Timmy's lap for a short time, who looks much like SandraBullock.
* Garrison and Choksondik have an exchange that echoes Luke and Yoda in '''Film/TheEmpireStrikesBack''', when Choksondik proclaims she isn't afraid, and Garrison says, "You will be. You will be." The parallel continues with the large hollow tree used as part of the training, containing only the demons they take in with them.
* The response to Cartman's taunts of "Suck my balls" with "Present them," references a portion of the book''' Educating Esmé,''' in which a mentor tells a student to drop his pants after he continually exclaims "suck my dick."
* "Spirit, haunt me no longer!" is a reference to '''Literature/AChristmasCarol''', when the Ghost of Christmas Past shows Scrooge a Christmas from his childhood.
[[/folder]]

[[folder: Trapper Keeper]]
* "Bill Cosby," [=VSM471=], is a compilation of movie references:
** He and his plotline are a spoof on '''Franchise/{{Terminator}}''', with clothing similar to that of Kyle Reese in the first film and a soundalike of the theme from the films plays when Cosby reveals his true nature. His continued pronunciation of human as “hu-mon” is a reference to the Ferengi of '''Franchise/StarTrek'''. The white fluid that comes out of his body is like that of the android in '''Film/{{Alien}}'''.
* During the retelling of future events, other than references to the '''Terminator''' movies, some of the war machines also resemble the ED-209 from the '''Franchise/RoboCop''' movies. (except with a large '''Series/DawsonsCreek''' photo as a torso.)
* The Cartman-shaped bio-mechanical blob monster is a reference to the anime film '''Manga/{{Akira}}''', as is the fashion in which Rosie O’Donnell is killed. The music playing when the Trapper Keeper moves toward the base resembles the music played when Akira awakens to stop Tetsuo.
* The line "We are Trapper Keeper" is a reference to the Borg of '''Franchise/StarTrek'''.
* When Kyle is sucked into the mutated Cartman, the room where the Trapper Keeper's CPU is located looks exactly like HAL's CPU racks in '''Film/TwoThousandOneASpaceOdyssey'''. The Trapper Keeper's dialogue with a Kyle is also taken from the film.
* When Cartman crashes the police cruiser into Cosby, he says "Book 'em, Barbrady," a reference to the line "Book 'em, Danno," off the show '''Series/HawaiiFiveO'''.
[[/folder]]

[[folder: Hellen Keller! The Musical]]
* The scenes in which Butters runs down the hallway to the auditorium come straight out of '''Film/TheRightStuff''' whenever the Russians launched a new rocket.
* Timmy picking out his turkey is like Charlie Brown picking the pathetic little tree in '''WesternAnimation/ACharlieBrownChristmas'''. He took it back to everyone else and they said "What the hell is that?" just like the SP gang did.
* The visions Cartman sees when he closes his eyes are a tribute to '''Film/AClockworkOrange''' when Alex comes home the first night and closes his eyes: 'And oh what lovely pictures I did see.' It is all violent stuff - hangings, explosions, Alex as a Vampire, etc. The Nazi footage is stuff that Alex is forced to watch later in the film.
* The way Timmy abandons his beloved pet turkey is very similar to a scene in '''Film/AirBud'''. In the movie a young boy takes his golden retriever out away from his house and walks away from the dog with tears in his eyes. (According to the [[WordOfGod commentary]], Gobbles was originally a puppy)
* The turkey mass slaughter scene "Our turkeys are killed humanely" comes from '''Film/SoylentGreen'''.
* Timmy performs a feat right out of '''Film/InTheLineOfFire''' (and other films) when he dives out of his chair and takes a bullet for Gobbles.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Pip]]
* '''Series/MasterpieceTheatre''' is parodied in this episode. The music playing during those segments is from Vivaldi's The Four Seasons: Spring.
* The basic plot is indeed that of the Creator/CharlesDickens novel '''Literature/GreatExpectations'''.
* One of the blacksmith's creations is a "metal orange", a nod to Creator/MalcolmMcDowell ("The Narrator" in this episode), who is most famous for his portrayal of Alex [=DeLarge=] in the Stanley Kubrick film, '''Film/AClockworkOrange'''.
* The name "Genesis Device" is lifted from '''Film/StarTrekIITheWrathOfKhan''' and '''Film/StarTrekIIITheSearchForSpock''', part of the Genesis Project, the device used to bring new Edenic life to an otherwise unsuitable planet.
[[/folder]]

[[folder: Fat Camp]]
* The line "healthy and clean" may be a reference to Music/PinkFloyd's ''Music/TheWall''; "Momma's gonna keep baby healthy and clean."
* James Taylor's ''Your Smiling Face'' is parodied.
* Cartman escaping and being returned to camp until he's done his time seems to come from '''Film/CoolHandLuke'''.
* Kenny's stunts are similar to those performed on '''Series/{{Jackass}}''' and by Tom Green.
* Kenny eating dog crap is a possible reference to the infamous ending of '''Film/PinkFlamingos'''.
[[/folder]]

[[folder: The Wacky Molestation Adventure]]
* The song sung by Kyle heard while he writes Castro resembles ''Blue Christmas'', which was the song heard as Santa read a young girl’s letter in '''WesternAnimation/TheYearWithoutASantaClaus'''. The letter and crayon drawings are also a reference.
* Kyle [[RiskyBusinessDance dancing in his underwear]] is straight out of '''Film/RiskyBusiness'''.
* The scene when the kids are standing in the town alone when they first figured out the parents were all gone comes from '''Film/TheOmegaMan''', about the man being the last one on earth.
* The town taken over by kids was a reference to '''Film/ChildrenOfTheCorn1984''', which features human sacrifice and a couple getting stuck in a town full of sinister children who have killed their parents. The woman is taken hostage and the man called "Outlander," by those holding his girlfriend captive.
* "We already played with our parents. Now we wanna play with you," is a paraphrase of a child in '''Literature/PetSematary'''.
* The splitting into two tribes could be a reference to '''Literature/LordOfTheFlies'''.
* Craig is referred to as Spaceman Spiff, a shout-out to '''ComicStrip/CalvinAndHobbes'''.
* There are many references to '''Film/MadMaxBeyondThunderdome''' in this episode, especially the story told about "the before time."
* The reference to 'Carousel' comes from '''Film/LogansRun'''.
[[/folder]]

[[folder: A Very Crappy Christmas]]
* '''Disney/TheLionKing''' song, ''The Circle of Life'' is parodied here, complete with scenery.
* '''WesternAnimation/ACharlieBrownChristmas''', referenced often in the show, is directly parodied here, with the boys shown watching it.
* Schroeder, from '''ComicStrip/{{Peanuts}}''', is seen playing the music for the recording of The Spirit of Christmas.
* ''Even a Miracle Needs a Hand'' comes from the Rankin/Bass animated TV film, '''WesternAnimation/TwasTheNightBeforeChristmas'''. Mister Hanky's family mirrors the family of mice, with the eldest child questioning the concept of Christmas.
[[/folder]]

[[WMG: '''Season Five:''']]

[[folder: It Hits The Fan]]
* The show everyone is talking about is likely referencing '''Series/ChicagoHope''', on which a character said, "Shit happens." (It's worth noting that Chicago Hope was not a "Cop Drama," and the [[WordOfGod commentary]] incorrectly attributes the uncensored expletive to '''Series/NYPDBlue'''.)
* Mr. Garrison's song parodies '''Film/ChittyChittyBangBang'''.
* The red haired man at Excalibur looked like Eric Idle and the wizard there looked like Tim from '''Film/MontyPythonAndTheHolyGrail'''. When the knight died he did that long "ahhhhh", like the inscription on a cave wall in Holy Grail when one of the character dies.
* The dragon, Geldon, bears a certain resemblance to [[http://images4.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20101222025309/disney/images/4/4f/Maleficent_Dragon_-Wallpaper-_copy.jpg Maleficent]] of '''[[Disney/SleepingBeauty Disney's Sleeping Beauty]]''' (who also appears as a villain in '''Franchise/KingdomHearts'''.)
[[/folder]]

[[folder: Cripple Fight]]
* The fight between Timmy and Jimmy is nearly shot-for-shot the fight scene between Wrestling/RoddyPiper and Creator/KeithDavid in Creator/JohnCarpenter's '''Film/TheyLive'''.
* The Mountain Scouts' branding as a hate group is a reference to the Boy Scouts of America v. Dale case in 2000. Creator/StevenSpielberg said at the time that he was no longer proud to be a Scout.
* Jimmy's impressions include Creator/JimmyStewart in '''Film/ItsAWonderfulLife''' with "Merry Christmas movie house" and Creator/JohnTravolta in '''Series/WelcomeBackKotter''' with "Oh my God Mr Kotter! Mr Kotter, oh my God!".
[[/folder]]

[[folder: Super Best Friends]]
* The Super Best Friends themselves are an homage to the Franchise/{{Justice League|OfAmerica}}.
* The boys going door-to-door is very similar to Mormon missionaries in Parker and Stone's film '''Film/{{Orgazmo}}.'''
* The Blaintology headquarters are modeled after the site of the mass cult suicide in Waco, Texas. The bed covers on the bunks are purple, a possible reference to Heaven's Gate, the cult that committed suicide when the Hale-Bopp comet came around.
[[/folder]]

[[folder: Scott Tenorman Must Die]]
* The plot of this episode contains elements of Shakespeare's '''Theatre/TitusAndronicus'''. This episode also echoes the story of Thyestes in Greek mythology, whose sons are killed and fed to him by his brother Atreus.
* As in "Cat Orgy" and "4th Grade", Cartman quotes Pink Floyd's song ''Pigs (Three Different Ones'') by taunting "Ha ha, charade you are!"
* Cartman's gathering the other kids in his basement and telling them about his plan to get rid of Scott Tenorman is based on Pee Wee's speech to an uninterested crowd about the theft of his bike in '''Film/PeeWeesBigAdventure'''.
* "You may take our pride, but you'll never take my Goddamned sixteen dollars and twelve cents" is a '''Film/{{Braveheart}}''' paraphrase.
* Kenny dying in this episode is similar to the way the Weasels die in '''Film/WhoFramedRogerRabbit'''; laughing so hard they die and then their ghosts rising up laughing as well.
* When Cartman arrives in Ft. Collins a boy delivers a box to him. Cartman opens the box and is horrified to find more pubes. This is a reference to the end of '''Film/{{Se7en}}''', when Detective Mills receives a delivery box in the middle of nowhere and opens it to find his murdered wife's head.
* Cartman's "That's all Folks!" parody of WesternAnimation/PorkyPig at the end of the episode is [[FridgeBrilliance possibly a reference to an earlier event in the episode in which Cartman gets on his knees and sings "I'm a little piggy, here's my snout..." to the tune of "I'm a Little Teapot".]]
[[/folder]]

[[folder: Terrance & Phillip: Behind the Blow]]
* The most obvious reference is the parody of Creator/VH1's '''Behind The Music.'''
* The heads of the Earth Day Brainwashing organization waving their forearms in an arc are a reference to the Jedi masters in the '''Franchise/StarWars''' movies, who can override a person's intentions with a wave of the arm and a suggestion.
* "Who Farted?" is a spoof of the Creator/AbbottAndCostello sketch "WhosOnFirst"
* The '''Theatre/{{Hamlet}}''' scene is more or less line-for-line.
* The Terrance & Phillip Saturday morning cartoon is a parody of '''WesternAnimation/StarTrekTheAnimatedSeries'''.
* Kenny being chopped up piece by piece references the decimation of the Black Knight in '''Film/MontyPythonAndTheHolyGrail'''.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Cartmanland]]
* Cartman's {{Distant Reaction S|hot}}cream when he found out he just got a million dollars is based on the famous "severed horse head" scene from '''Film/TheGodfather'''.
* Cartman's rant about lines, lines, lines is almost shot-for-shot from the animated '''WesternAnimation/HowTheGrinchStoleChristmas''' when he rages about noise, noise, noise. The rhythm of his dialogue also mirrors the writing style of Dr. Seuss, with rhyming and a certain amount of nonsense, plus the Dr. Seuss style art with the spotted strawberry, and the Dr. Seuss character playing the bizarre instrument.
[[/folder]]

[[folder: Proper Condom Use]]
* The girls' fortress and the stand-off is a reference to '''[[Film/MadMax The Road Warrior]]''', with Butters playing The Humungus and Kenny being killed by a bladed boomerang.
-->'''Butters:''' ''(in a deep, raspy voice through the mike)'' Just walk away. You can put a stop to all this. Just walk away and we will spare your lives. Just walk away.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Towelie]]
* The idea of high-tech, important towels seems to reference '''Franchise/TheHitchhikersGuideToTheGalaxy'''. The talking towel concept could be borrowed from '''ComicStrip/{{Doonesbury}}''' comic strips, with characters such as the talking cigarette butt.
* Cartman says a few lines from '''Film/SlingBlade''' ("You shouldn't'a done that, he's just a boy," and "poor little feller") with an accent similar to that in the movie, when referring to Stan's mom's tampon he found in the trash. His line about it being "not for usin', it's just for lookin' through" is from '''Film/TheOutlawJoseyWales'''.
* The way Towelie says, "Wanna get high?" harkens to the Creator/CheechAndChong movie '''Film/UpInSmoke''', in which Chong is teaching a bird to say the same phrase.
* One of the soldiers suggests that the four boys may have a telepathic link with Towelie, like '''[[Film/ETTheExtraTerrestrial E.T.]]'''
* When Towelie gets high we hear the music played in '''ComicStrip/{{Popeye}}''' when the titular character eats spinach.
* The failed Towelie clone that they discover at the military base is a reference to the failed Ripley Clone from '''Film/AlienResurrection'''.
* Kenny's death by lava and the new, buffed-up Towelie reference '''Terminator2JudgmentDay'''. Also, Tynacorp looks like Cyberdyne Systems.
* Kyle reaching for the Game Sphere while hanging above magma is a reference to '''Film/IndianaJonesAndTheLastCrusade''', in which Indie strains to reach the Holy Grail.
* The [[BlandNameProduct Okama GameSphere]] seems to be a reference to the NintendoGamecube which was being hyped for release at the time the episode first aired.
* The soldiers in this episode aren't so much a reference to the HECU soldiers from '''VideoGame/{{Half-Life|1}}''' as they are completely based off of them in appearance.
[[/folder]]

[[folder: Osama Bin Laden Has Farty Pants]]
* Cartman makes a reference to "Sand People," though the characters shown are actually closer to ''Jawas''. Both are from '''Franchise/StarWars'''.
* The majority of the homages in this episode came from old WesternAnimation/BugsBunny cartoons:
** "What's up doc?" and the various Osama/Elmer Fudd take-offs. Both Bugs and Daffy regularly delighted in crossdressing for and kissing their opponents. Cartman's smart-ass AsideGlance to the camera while Bin Laden dined with the camel is something Bugs would do quite often under the direction of Creator/ChuckJones. The signs ("screw-ball", etc) Cartman holds up at one point can be found often in these cartoons, although they never got quite as vulgar. The "Tiny, Isn't It" gag was a standard in director Creator/BobClampett's cartoons. In a series of MGM cartoons directed by Creator/TexAvery, a wolf would lose control over a sexy redhead and go off in a series of wild poses called "takes". The takes of Bin Laden when he sees a dolled-up Cartman are direct parodies of this.
** Some references to specific WWII-vintage Merrie Melodies in this episode:
*** In "Herr Meets Hare" (1945) a Nazi soldier battles Bugs Bunny. At one point Bugs arrives in drag as Brunhilde, riding a horse. Cartman's entrance in drag astride a camel could be a take-off of this. Bugs did the identical gimmick in the "Ride of the Valkyrie" cartoon.
*** One gag was taken from a Bob Clampett cartoon titled "Russian Rhapsody", which dealt with Adolf Hitler. In this cartoon, the plane he is piloting is attacked by an army of small Russian gremlins, who proceed to demolish the plane, plummeting Hitler to his grave. His last line in the cartoon is, "Nutzies in de cwaziest people." Bin Laden's last line in this episode is an echo of this.
* Stan putting his jacket around the base of the flag is much like Linus putting his blanket around the bottom of the Christmas tree in the '''Peanuts''' ChristmasSpecial.
[[/folder]]

[[folder: How To Eat With Your Butt]]
* The hair sticking up on Butters' head is reminiscent of Alfalfa from '''TheLittleRascals'''.
[[/folder]]

[[folder: The Entity]]
* "Cousin Kyle" is a deadpan parody of Creator/WoodyAllen.
* The scene with the two old ladies at the Grand Canyon with the narrator asking them how they got there is a reference to Hoveround wheelchair commercials in which two old ladies got to the Grand Canyon with them.
[[/folder]]

[[folder: Here Comes The Neighborhood]]
* Creator/WillSmith saying he could finally live like a cowboy was a rip on his film '''Film/WildWildWest'''.
* Aslan is from '''Literature/TheChroniclesOfNarnia''', and his design in this episode is nearly identical to his appearance in the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E8zCqjz1Edw animated adaptation.]] The way Aslan talked, though, is much like King Moonracer, the ruler of the Island of Misfit Toys from the animated '''WesternAnimation/RudolphTheRedNosedReindeer'''.
[[/folder]]

[[folder: Kenny Dies]]
* "I love Kenny [=McCormick=] and... I want you to love him too." refers to a similar line from '''Brian's Song''', "I love Brian Piccolo....and I want you all to love him too."
* Butters' picture is a '''very''' subtle reference to the first verse of Meat Loaf's song "Objects In The Rear View Mirror". Compare the [[http://www.dailymotion.com/video/xqj6x_objects-in-the-rear-view-mirror_music music video]].
[[/folder]]

[[folder: Butters' Very Own Episode]]
* The scene at the restaurant, where Simpson, the Ramseys, and Condit start chanting, "One of us, one of us, gooble gobble, gooble gobble", is an homage to a famous scene in the horror film, '''{{Film/Freaks}}'''.
* The old man that tells Butters about the walk back to South Park is based on old man Jud from '''Literature/PetSematary''', who explains the history of the path to the Indian burial ground, with notably similar dialogue.
* As Butters begins to walk down the dark road, the trees take on an appearance reminiscent of '''Film/TheWizardOfOz''', as facial features appear on them. Butters also encounters a Franchise/{{Predator}} on his way back to South Park.
* The events of the episode parallel the well-publicized case of Susan Smith, who drowned her children and claimed they'd been abducted by a black guy.
