An astonishingly short turn-around time helps keep the show topical with current events. The show is produced using the same graphics engine that helped create the dinosaurs in ''Film/JurassicPark'', which fostered comparisons to building a sandcastle with a bulldozer; only the early shorts and the pilot episode were done by hand via cut-outs and physical backdrops. In some cases, an episode can be produced a matter of days before it airs, allowing for current events to be parodied almost as soon as they happen. An episode on the capture of UsefulNotes/SaddamHussein aired just a few days after it happened and excerpts from both UsefulNotes/BarackObama and UsefulNotes/JohnMcCain's post-election speeches were featured in the episode that aired ''less than 24 hours'' after the election results came in. (In both cases, the episodes themselves weren't dependent on those facts but had some dialogue altered in the narrow gap between the real-life events and the episodes going to air.) The documentary ''6 Days to Air: The Making of South Park'' sheds light on this lightning-fast production schedule.

For its first sixteen seasons, individual seasons were split between two different "halves" (usually comprised of seven to eight episodes.) Starting with Season 17, the show runs for a single ten-episode chunk in the fall; this is done to accomodate Matt and Trey due to the success of their Broadway show ''The Book of Mormon'' (and the fact that they're not the young men they used to be when they made a paper-cutout animation about foul-mouthed third graders as a Christmas gag gift.) 2019 will mark the show's 23rd season, giving it [[LongRunners over 300 episodes.]] Trey and Matt have stated that they will continue to make ''South Park'' as long as ComedyCentral lets them.

While the AuthorTract is very evident, Matt and Trey have earned a measure of respect (some of it begrudging) from various groups all over the world because the duo makes a point of targeting ''everyone''. They've lampooned subjects near and dear to the hearts of social conservatives, [[PoliticalCorrectnessGoneMad social activists]], socialists, liberals, religious {{fundamentalist}}s, [[HollywoodAtheist actively hostile atheists]], corporations and business interests, anarchists, hippies, trendy people, geeks, teenagers, the elderly -- seriously, you could name just about any kind of group and the show's probably done ''something'' to piss that group off.
