'''''Osama Bin Laden Has Farty Pants''''' is the ninth episode of the fifth season of ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'' and was the first episode to air after the [[UsefulNotes/TheWarOnTerror September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks]]. The plot revolves around the boys receiving a goat by mail from a group of Afghan children whom they donated a dollar to for charity. They decide to send the animal back to Afghanistan, but they all get accidentally locked inside the plane and are flown to the country themselves. There they meet UsefulNotes/OsamaBinLaden...

Despite getting shot in this episode, Bin Laden would [[NegativeContinuity reappear alive and well in later episodes]] such as "[[Recap/SouthParkS7E2KrazyKripples Krazy Kripples]]", "[[Recap/SouthParkS10E3CartoonWarsPartOne Cartoon]] [[Recap/SouthParkS10E4CartoonWarsPartTwo Wars]]" and "[[Recap/SouthParkS14E9ItsAJerseyThing It's a Jersey Thing]]".

** When Cartman says "What's up, Bin Laden?" he munches on a carrot, in reference to ''WesternAnimation/BugsBunny''. His entire confrontation against Bin Laden is done in the style of the {{war time cartoon}}s ''Franchise/LooneyTunes'' used to make during UsefulNotes/WorldWarII, complete with similar music, Cartman kissing his opponent à la Bugs Bunny, shouting "whoo hoo" à la WesternAnimation/DaffyDuck, dressing up as a woman to seduce Bin Laden and using hammers, sticks of dynamite and [[TalkingWithSigns signs with insulting rebuses]]. The line "Tiny, isn't it?" is similar to the signs with "Silly, isn't it?" that would appear in many Creator/TexAvery cartoons. Osama's final line: "Terrorists are the cwaziest peoples!" is a direct reference to the end of ''WesternAnimation/RussianRhapsody'', in which UsefulNotes/AdolfHitler says the same thing, only about Nazis.
** The final insult read on Cartman's sign is simply a picture of Creator/BarbraStreisand.
