‘South Park’ is an adult animated sitcom that airs on Comedy Central. The series first premiered on August 13, 1997. It has been created by Trey Parker and Matt Stone and developed by Brian Graden. Vernon Chatman serves as the producer, while Trey Parker, Matt Stone, Brian Graden, Deborah Liebling, Frank C. Agnone II, Bruce Howell, and Anne Garefino serve as the executive producers.
The show is the highest rated program of Comedy Central and is based on four boys-Stan Marsh, Kyle Broflovski, Eric Cartman, and Kenny McCormick. It is famous for covering a variety of subjects, which is told in a lewd and sometimes offensive language, which makes it suitable for adults only. And also you get a heavy dose of dark humor mixed with some social satire.
‘South Park’ has been nominated for numerous awards over the years and its winnings include one Annie Award, five Emmy Awards, and a Peabody Award. It even managed to get an Academy Award nomination at one point. ‘South Park’ is the second-longest-running show of Comedy Central. It initially started with cutout animation, before moving on to computer-based animation. Needless to say that a show that has run for so long, is well-loved by fans and has a massive and loyal base. Critics too have loved the series and over time it has come to be considered as one of the greatest television cartoons of all time.
