Throughout this whole episode you get little bits of his grand plan, you even get some misdirects from time to time to throw you off the trail, but at the end of the episode in the last few moments, you see Cartman’s greatest moment, ” Scott Tenorman Must Die ” is an Eric Cartman episode through and through and after watching it you will never look at Cartman the same way again.

After a while it goes full on disaster movie with an evil lice president and everything.

IMDB Rating:  8.2

Watch it on South Park Studios

The first of the three ” Meteor Shower Trilogy “, here we get to see the softer side of Cartman when he helps Stan’s older sister after her older boyfriend Skylar makes fun of her.

26: Chef Aid best southpark episodes - cheff aid

Artists Elton John and Ozzy Osbourne provided vocals in this episode, and the highlight of it included a scene where the evil record CEO shouted ” I am above the law! ” Great episode to watch

27: Good Times with Weapons

best southpark episodes - weapons

Notable quote from this episode: ” The entire Let’s Fighting Love ” song

IMDB Rating:  9.1

Watch it on South Park Studios

Parker and Stone considered season eight as one of their worst because at the time they worked on Team America, But it had some really great episodes like this one. The boys became fighting ninjas after buying some weapons at a local flea market. The theme song of this episode is one of the funniest things Trey Parker ever wrote ( yes we know most of it is gibberish ). As usual Butters is just trying to fit in with the guys and tries to get involved with his Professor Chaos costume but gets hurt in the eye by Kenny’s shuriken. Despite what Parker and Stone say, we think this episode is great.


best south park episodes - awesome

Notable quote from this episode: ” My birthday is not until Sep 11 ” 

IMDB Rating:  9.2

Watch it on South Park Studios

Another episode from season eight ( who strangely enough is considered to be not good ). This was a great Butters and Cartman episode where Cartman dresses up as a robot and Butters actually believes that he is real. Turning him to his new best friend Cartman is forced to play the part even when he has to put up with boring tasks and get groped by a military general. There’s not a lot of episodes where Butters comes up on top, this is one of these times.

29: Asspen

best southpark episodes- asspen

Notable quote from this episode: ” The Montage song, everybody loves a good Montage! “

Watch it on South Park Studios

This is a fan favorite for sure! After the boys families are being kidnapped by the timeshare salesmen in Aspen, the guys find themselves in a weird beef with a kid named Tad who started to pick on Stan for no reason, Calling him names like Darsh, this episode brilliantly mocks sports films from the 80’s and has many hilarious moments. This is also the first time we get to see the Montage song which is really LOL and later being used in the movie Team America.

30: You Got F’ed in the A

best southpark episodes - fucked in the a

Notable quote from this episode:” I’ve got something in my front pocket for you” 

IMDB Rating:  8.2

Taking on dance movies, this is the essence of this episode, You got served without Mickey, after Stan is embarrassing his dad Randy who get them the ” Achy Breaky Heart” and Stan had to signup South Park’s best dancers after a declared Dance-off was ON! The most weird and creepy fact about Butter’s past is revealed that he once killed hundreds of people in a weird tap dance performance. So can a lighting strike twice at the same place?

31: Terrance and Phillip In: ‘Not Without My Anus

best south park episodes - terrence

Notable quote from this episode: ” Phillip: What are you doing Scott? Scott: I’m wishing cancer upon you.”

IMDB Rating:  6.7

Anyone who loves South Park knows Terrance and Phillip, with their farts jokes and weird Canadian accent, they became a popular side show to the show. And although season two of South Park has many memorable moments like ” Chef’s Chocolate Salty Balls ” that will be forever engraved in our minds, Terrance and Phillip managed to get right up there with him. the two were shown in season one but now they’re back with their own showcase ” Not Without My Anus ” which is just insane. Saddam Hussein’s head gives an appearance and many other weird and funny stuff are going on there. It seems that the creators of South Park only want to show us how ridiculous they can be, and it works.

These were the best South Park episodes we could find. Did we forget something? Do you have anything to add? Let us know.
