Featured in the Animation World Store this week: The South Park Collection.
What can we say about this Comedy Central series? Political incorrectness, bad taste, fart jokes and lots of laughs. Volume 1 includes: "Cartman Gets an Anal Probe," "Volcano," "Weight Gain 4000," "Big Gay Al's Big Gay Boat Ride," "An Elephant Makes Love to a Pig," and "Death." The kids foil a plot to assassinate Kathie Lee Gifford in "Weight Gain 4000" and come to terms with their dog's homosexuality in "Big Gay Al's Big Gay Boat Ride." They also confront the Grim Reaper in the euthanasia-issue episode, "Death." Volume 2 offers six more outrageous episodes, including the hilarious Halloween "Pink Eye" zombie-fest episode, "Damien," the Omen spoof featuring a wrestling match between Jesus and Satan, "Starvin' Marvin," "Mecha-Streisand," "Mr. Hankey, the Christmas Poo," and "Tom's Rhinoplasty." Each volume is a three tape set and retails for $39.95 (available in the US only).
