The over-prescribing of Ritalin is satirized in this more irreverent than average episode of South Park. Timmy, a retarded boy capable of saying little more than his name, is diagnosed with ADD and is not forced to do homework. Soon the entire childhood population of South Park has been diagnosed the same way. Timmy ends up singing lead with a local metal band, Lords of the Underworld, while the Ritalin has made the children increase their appreciation of Phil Collins. Luckily, Chef saves the day for everyone. "Timmy 2000" first aired April 19, 2000, on Comedy Central, less than a month after Collins had earned a Best Song Oscar, beating out Trey Parker and Marc Shaiman who were nominated for "Blame Canada" from the movie South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut.

Arguably the most offensive, irreverent episode of South Park, "Cartman Joins NAMBLA" does its best to offend everyone.

The feds attempt to bust the group, but end up raiding the North American Marlon Brando Look-Alike organization. Certainly not for the easily offended, "Cartman Joins NAMBLA" first aired June 21, 2000, on Comedy Central.

The holistic healing movement suffers satiric barbs in this episode of South Park. Kyle is in need of a kidney transplant. His mother's herbal remedies are not helping, and Cartman (who would be a perfect match for a transplant) is charging ten million dollars for his kidney. Stan figures out a way to trick Cartman into allowing the transplant. References to The Silence of the Lambs and Valley of the Dolls as well as an appearance by the comic duo Cheech and Chong color "Cherokee Hair Tampons" which aired June 28, 2000, on Comedy Central.

Political correctness takes another round of satiric jabs from this pointedly irreverent episode of South Park. Chef intends to change the seemingly racist banner South Park claims as its flag. He gets support from young Wendy Testaburger, but her concentration is undermined by her attraction to the admittedly disgusting Cartman. After Kyle and Stan explain to Chef their wholesome reading of the seemingly racist flag, Chef stops his fight. "Chef Goes Nanners" first aired July 5, 2000, on Comedy Central.

Popular boy bands the Backstreet Boys and 'N Sync take a savage satirical beating in this episode of South Park. In an attempt to make millions, Cartman starts a boy band, Fingerbang. Desperate for a fifth member, Eric, Kyle, Kenny, and Stan dress up one of the girls as a boy. The band continues to find success even though Stan's father is disturbed by his son's involvement. Father and son come to turns. The band's songs highlight "Something You Can Do With Your Finger," which aired July 12, 2000, on Comedy Central.

This typically irreverent episode of South Park has the afterlife on its mind. After Eric, Stan, and Kenny learn about Hell in church, they feel the need to save Kyle (because he is Jewish) and Timmy (because he is unable to say anything other than his name, he is unable to confess). The priest turns out to be an unworthy source of moral guidance. And what would a South Park episode about Hell be without an appearance by that infamous dysfunctional couple Jesus and Saddam Hussein? "Do the Handicapped Go to Hell?" first aired July 19, 2000, on Comedy Central.

Evangelical preachers and a certain Middle Eastern dictator suffer some sharp satiric barbs in this typically irreveverent episode of South Park. Continuing the story from the previous episode, Cartman has become a successful evangelical preacher. Luckily Jesus appears to set the children and adults of South Park straight, while Satan, with a little help from God, finally figures a way out of his dysfunctional relationship with Saddam Hussein. References to the Bible, Happy Days, and the old Peanuts specials color "Probably", which first aired July 26, 2000, on Comedy Central.

Critic Reviews for South Park Season 4

All Critics (2) | Top Critics (0)

This series gets a free pass while putting forth some of the most scathing commentary on social institutions there is, and "Do the Handicapped Go to Hell?" is a fine example.

Sep 12, 2013 | Rating: 9/10 | Full Review…

It hardly matters that such material is standard Parker-and-Stone, because The Complete Fourth Season also demonstrates how brilliant they can be.

Audience Reviews for South Park: Season 4

  • Sep 21, 2020
    The adventures get more crazy and outrageous in South Park's fourth season 4. Stan, Kyle, Cartman and Kenny embark on a serious of schemes to get $1 million dollars by posing as tooth fairies, starting a boy band, and leading a religious crusade. And the town gets embroiled in controversy after controversy when Timmy, a handicapped kid, becomes the leader if a local rock band, Chef protests the South Park flag, and the Marshes take in a group of orphans from Romania. Additionally, there are Thanksgiving and Christmas holiday specials, and Pip finally get is very own episode in a Masterpiece Theatre spoof. But most importantly, the boys graduate to Fourth Grade and get a new teacher, Miss Choksondik. Continuing to deliver smart and hilarious satire, Season 4 of South Park keeps pushing bounders and delivering laughs.

    The first truly amazing season of South Park, Season 4 is fantastic from the get-go with gut-bustingly funny episodes and biting satire that remains relevant to this day.

    For me personally this season is over all a bit better than Season 3. Although for me that's hard to say because S3 has so many memorable episodes very dear to my heart. There were just two episode I couldn't really get behind. I never liked Pip and Mr. Hankey. Just like I never liked Towelie. I have to say though that the first Mr. Hankey episode was fine, just like the way they retired him in way later seasons. But other than that just a nuisance. To keep it short I consider this seasons still one of the classics must watch. So go watch it and fall in love with South Park!

    Season 4 is when South Park really becomes South Park. With more focus on satirical humor for this season, episodes such as "Cartman Joins NAMBLA", "Chef Goes Nanners", and "The Wacky Molestation Adventure" show how South Park can be bold, brilliant, and stupidly funny at the same time.

    The season where South Park stopped being good and became great. This season of South Park is Fantastic. It's Funnier more Satirical and Smarter than ever before. It also introduced the character of Timmy who was excellent. Also Butters was starting to be taken seriously. the best season so far.. By Far. It really is Excellent Best Episode: "Cartman joins NAMBLA" Worst Episode: "Pip"
