YMMV / South Park S19 E6 "Tweek Craig"

Go To

  • Pandering to the Base: The canonisation of Creek (Tweek and Craig) as a couple can easily be seen as this, given the long history of Creek as a slash couple in the fandom. This is taken even further in the episode "Put It Down" and the game "South Park: The Fractured But Whole", which erased all ambiguity to the point that they appear to be serious about their relationship, if a little turbulent, even though they were faking it in the episode.
    • This was also parodied to an extent as all of South Park shipped them together for the sake of making their own town look progressive.
  • Squick: The ending, with Cartman masturbating to thinking about being screwed by himself. Gay or not, Cartman's seriously messed up about his own sexuality.
  • Tear Jerker: As absurd as the situation is, a lot of the yaoi fanart after Craig and Tweek ‘break up’ is oddly poignant.
    • Especially when it is revealed that the Mayor's aide who died in Night of the Living Homeless was her boyfriend.

  • The Woobie: Craig, ho boy. A gay rumor about him and Tweek dating spreads around school and no one believes him when he tells them it's false and after the fake "break up" everyone hates Craig for "cheating" on Tweek. Craig is basically sad through out the entire episode, and if that's not enough his dad, unsure of how to deal with having a 'gay' son, first wants him to not be gay, and then believes he is gay and wants him to show it. You just want to give the poor kid a hug! Lucky for Craig, Tweek instantly feels guilty that everybody thinking he's the bad guy, and fixes things, making them closer at the end.

How well does it match the trope?
