South Park: The Last of the Meheecans & Monty Python: Life of Brian
So let me get this straight, Seth MacFarlane disagrees with South Park using aids in one of their episodes but in an episode of Family Guy they were talking about sodomizing young boys. So it’s okay to talk about sodomy but not aids? They didn’t even spell it “aids”, they spelled it “aides.”
That makes sense.
Another example of MacFarlane missing the point:
Seth MacFarlane: “The question becomes, at what point is it worth it for them to put themselves at risk? Like, is the joke so hilarious that we want to risk our lives?”
Penn Jillette: “It’s not the question of doing it for the laugh, there is a moral element to this — I think you cheapen Matt and Trey’s morality, strength and courage when you say, ‘Is the joke worth it?’ Because the question is, ‘What is morally right?’”
Exactly. That’s so not the point, Seth. I think Matt and Trey have established it many times that they don’t only care about the jokes being funny. They are always interested in what it says and what the reason behind making the joke is. I guess that separates Family Guy from South Park.
Sometimes, I look through the South Park fandom and see some really cute things and people posting awesome stuff and talking about how SP changed their life and its like
But then I see pairings and a picture of Cartman being butt-fucked and its like
I know, dude…. I know.
You can see in the 6 Days to Air how after finishing the script, Trey sits Matt down and has him approve the logic of the storyline. As soon as he gets Matt’s approval that it all makes sense, it can be passed to the production team.
It also becomes apparent in their commentaries throughout the years, how Matt has a soft spot for purely absurd, ridiculous, stupid jokes but can’t stand it when something is just merely illogical or doesn’t make sense.
Mocking Stone is a regular pastime among people who discuss South Parkon message boards; a typical posting reads: “Trey writes every episode and then does the majority of the voices and most of the music while Matt sits around and laughs at Trey to encourage him.” And it’s obviously true that Parker is responsible for South Park as the crude, foul-mouthed work of art it is, and Stone really isn’t. But producing a TV series entails more than just the artistry. That’s where Stone comes in…
"South Park has a silent partner - Trey Parker writes and directs every episode. So what does co-creator Matt Stone do?" JAIME J. WEINMAN, April 23, 2007
