South Park Season 17 is now underway, and the little long running animated cartoon is looking better than ever. The brand new (and really rather awesome) title sequence aside, it is pretty much business as usual in the small little mountain town in Colorado. South Park has always had a great ability to deliver incredibly current social commentary through the eyes of four young boys.
Over the years though, South Park has expanded and become about much more. There are a whole town’s worth of supporting characters who can regularly become the main focus, and one of the series’ strengths is that any of them could hold up an episode on their own. Episodes barely featuring the main four are not frequent but do happen, and the show feels none the less for it.
Whether it’s the raucous antics of one of the boys’ parents, or a sex change by a certain teacher, or even a little naive good-hearted boy, there are hundreds of characters that can very easily steal the show. In a 22-minute comedy, such a big cast is impressive and more so Trey Parker and Matt Stone’s ability to give each character a fair amount of time in the spotlight. At the same time, they never let the focus go off the boys or the main message of the episode.
South Park can be taken as just pure fun, or an in-depth critical analysis of the world we live in. Let’s stick to the fun for this article as we look into 7 hilarious, larger than life supporting characters who regularly steal the show.
