Recap: South Park S 14 E 6 Two Hundred One
In this sequel to "200," the celebrities that have been insulted and mocked continue their search for Mohammed so they can find the secret of why he's never been insulted. Meanwhile, Cartman discovers the horrible truth: that he does have a father and the story that his mom is a hermaphrodite was a lie.

Let's just get this out of the way, okay?

  • Banned Episode: This episode will never be shown on TV again. It can be seen on DVD, but only in its aired, censored form (but hey, that's better than no episode at all). Meanwhile, Netflix and the show's official website don't even have this episode (nor do they have "200" and "The Super Best Friends" due to the controversy this episode caused).
  • Cluster Bleep Bomb: Comedy Central not only bleeped and blocked any mention of Muhammad's name, but also Kyle and Jesus' speech of not giving into intimidation or fear. To this day, Parker and Stone are not allowed to disclose what the characters originally said. The ending eventually appeared on Live Leak. Listen here.
  • Creator Backlash: Trey Parker and Matt Stone were not happy about what Comedy Central did to this episode.
  • Life Imitates Art: Looks like Comedy Central "pussed out" like in the "Cartoon Wars" episodes.

Examples:

  • Bait and Switch: The previous episode sets up a scenario where Muhammad is apparently disguised in a bear suit, and the gingers want him to step out of it to verify if it's really him. This episode reveals that it's really Santa Claus inside the suit.
    Stan: If we were gonna have someone in a bear costume, why would we actually have it be Muhammad, you fucking idiot?!
  • But Now I Must Go: Mitch Connor leaves due to having a bounty on his head.
  • Painting the Medium: When Tom Cruise steals Mohammad's "goo", a Censor Box appears over him. It disappears when it turns out he's not immune to being made fun of after all.
  • Retcon: Liane Cartman is revealed not to be a hermaphrodite as said in "Cartman's Mom is Still a Dirty Slut", but she really had Cartman with Broncos player Jack Tenorman. The town just covered in up because they didn't want a illegitimate child scandal to tarnish the Bronos' good season.
  • The Reveal: Cartman's true father is also Scott Tenorman's, meaning he killed his own father.
  • Self-Made Orphan: This episode reveals that thanks to his actions in "Scott Tenorman Must Die", Cartman is halfway there.
  • Shout-Out: The climax is a parody of The Killing Joke.
  • Spoof Aesop: The bleeped speech near the end recommended using threats and violence to get what you want.
  • Violence is the Only Option: As it turns out, stealing people's "goo" is not the way to get your way, because such goo doesn't exist.
  • You Have Got to Be Kidding Me!: Kyle's reaction when Mitch Connor cheers Cartman up by telling him that although Cartman is "half ginger", he's also "half Denver Bronco".
    Mitch: Shut up Kyle, you dumb Jew.
