** The way Mr Garrisons sex change was handled was controversial enough when it first aired- specifically, they concluded that he wasn't ''really'' a woman, just a "guy with a vagina" (though, they also concluded that was fine if that's what he wanted). Since transgender rights have become a much more prominent issue in the post-2010s and sex changes much more socially accepted, it's pretty easy to look back on this episode and it's conclusion and cringe. Garrison sticking with the sex change can be seen as both good and bad as well (particularly since he eventually went back), since if you're okay with this story arc Mrs Garrison was one of the first leading transgender characters in western media period (and several subsequent episodes dealt with trans issues), while on the other you pretty much ''have'' to watch that episode to understand why Mr Garrison had a sex change in the first place.

** ''Christian Rock Hard'' Cartman forms a Christian rock band by taking inserting Christian lyrics into secular songs. Well now there's a RealLife [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ApologetiX band]] that does pretty much that.

** [[http://i.imgur.com/5Saktmn.jpg The fandom has been accused of delving into this in Season 19]], for using the show as a means to circle jerk about being anti Politically Correct despite their insistence that the show is supposedly apolitical and "attacks everyone."

** YMMV on hilarious, but in the 2007 episode "Guitar Queer-o", Randy criticizes ''VideoGame/GuitarHero'' because the guitar controls are plastic and that playing a real guitar is cooler, Stan telling him off on it. This is the exact reason the series eventually died in 2010, with ''Warriors of Rock'' selling poorly, implying people got sick of band games and found plastic guitars inconvenient. Guess South Park was right, huh?

And with the rise of Rocksmith, more people got the kick out of playing real guitars. Guess South Park was right, huh?

* DeaderThanDisco: "Stanley's Cup" was pretty popular back when it first aired, being given a 9.1 out of 10 on Website/{{IGN}}. Now, it is near universally reviled due to its cruel twist DownerEnding where a boy dies of cancer after the pee-wee hockey team loses, and the scene in which the Detroit Red Wings assault the young kids.

** The executive of Blizzard Entertainment in "Make Love, Not Warcraft" states that because of [[Griefer a guy]] [[JerkAss killing everybody's characters]] [[ForTheEvulz for seemingly no good reason]], everybody will stop playing the game.
