South Park follows
the adventures of four little boys,
Stan, Kyle, Cartman and Kenny. Unlike
most TV children, these kids were
actually a lot like real children.
This was the genius of the show, and a
significant element of its ongoing
appeal. Stan, Kyle, Cartman and Kenny
weren't cute, precocious, smart,
well-behaved or even likable much of the
time. They were foul-mouthed,
cruel-to-their-peers, badly behaved
delinquents who nevertheless had good
hearts underneath it all (except Cartman).
