South Park: Dances With Smurfs (11/11/09)


Here is the plot outline for tonight’s all new episode of South Park courtesy of Star Pulse, they seem to have a better source for the plot summaries than TVguide.com does.

Dances With Smurfs

Eric Cartman seizes the opportunity to become the voice of change at the school when he takes over the morning announcements. His target is South Park Elementary’s Student Body President, Wendy Testaburger. Cartman is asking the tough questions and gaining followers.

I’m going to have to say I was a little disappointed in this episode. Essentially Cartman takes over the job as the morning announcement reader after the normal kid is killed by some crazy guy who mistakes him for the 40 year old truck driver that has been sleeping with his wife. This was the only part I thought was good, the fact that you heard everything go down over the PA system in the school was great. It got a little uncomfortable/intense when the dude made the kid put the gun in his mouth and then blew his head off, but still probably the best part of the episode.

The rest of the time Cartman is just trying to annoy the hell out of Wendy as she is Student Counsel President and for some reason Cartman doesn’t think she’s doing a good job. He even writes a 500+ page book about Wendy that essentially just calls her a slut and makes fun of her vagina. In the end Cartman creates some ridiculous story about how Wendy hates Smurfs and had them all killed after he fell in love with Smurfette, but in the end Wendy turns the whole thing around on Cartman and makes it look like he was sent in to Smurf land undercover to steal Smurf berries to power the school, or something. In the end Cartman takes over as student counsel president and realizes that you don’t do shit and have no power to really change anything in the school.

Like I said I though the episode was pretty ‘meh’ coming off of last weeks biker fags, so hopefully next week will be better. What did you guys think? I’m sure I missed the whole point of this episode, but if that’s the case, then I guess that’s why I didn’t like it.
