    Beautifully done.

    On VH1's Inside Southpark, they say it takes them 1 week to do a show. They must of been working all night for this one. Great stuff.

    I take it that this episode has to do with Saddam's Capture?

    WillG: Yep, they mention it, but it was also a great Wizard of Oz spoof/homage.

    Cartman's wailing at the end made the perfect capper to a hysterical episode. [​IMG]

    I was very surprised to see this subject to appear so quickly. I also loved last week's episode when the boys went to Raisins. That was also very hilarious.

    Didn't Canada also have their PM resign last week?

    It great how they can get 2 current events and so quickly turn that into a new show.

    Great episode again!!

    Well, this isn't the first time they did a quick turnaround for an episode. They did it once before. I think it was "Osama Bin Laden Has Farty Pants", but I'm not sure...

    I want some of what they are taking before they write these things.

    You're right it's not the first time. The other time was with Elian (sp?) Gonzales.

    Thank you! I knew I didn't have the right one and I couldn't remember the episode. That one was excellent!

    These guys are brilliant. The thing I'm curious about is whether or not they wrote another episode and decided to air this one instead. Do they finish the episodes as the season needs them to air (do them 1 week before they go on) or do they do them so they have several done before the first one even airs (like most live action shows)?

    I would suspect that they do the episodes week of airing. I say that because Comedy Central doesn't seem to promo any clips for a new show for the next week. They only say "New Episode Next Week"

    I'm sure they have a plan of what they are doing for a show, but if anything topical comes along they probably hurry and animate something new.

    I think thats why they picked Canada. All the characters have no bodily or facial detail so they are easier to animate.

    I guess I'm the only one here that didn't like this episode. I was hoping for another 'Mr. Hankey' Christmas special.[​IMG]
