List of South Park episodes

"Major Boobage" is the third episode of the twelfth season of the animated series South Park,[1] first broadcast on March 26, 2008. In the episode, Kenny becomes addicted to hallucinations induced by a new drug-craze in South Park called "cheesing".

The episode was written and directed by series co-founder Trey Parker and co-written by series co-founder Matt Stone. It is the first episode of South Park to be rated TV-MA LSV. Many hallucination segments were inspired by the 1981 Canadian film Heavy Metal,[2] and includes references to various rumored drug crazes, FOX News reporting styles, the experiences of Jews in Europe during World War II, and Eliot Spitzer's 2008 prostitution scandal.[3]

Plot

Mr. Mackey lectures the kids on the dangers of choking themselves to get high, as well as other methods that are becoming popular, including getting high off cat urine. Mr. Mackey explains that urine used by male cats to mark their territory in the presence of other male cats, can cause one to get intoxicated when inhaled. Curious, the boys go to Cartman's house and confirm it for themselves, by having Cartman's cat, Mr. Kitty (who, in previous episodes, was actually female), squirt urine in Kenny's face. Kenny then experiences a drug trip driving a rocket-powered, black Pontiac Trans Am (like Harry Canyon) through space and encountering a woman with large breasts (Taarna). At the height of the trip, as he is about to bathe with her, Cartman manages to pin him to the ground and bring him back to reality, where he has been running around and removing his clothing (though Kenny angrily attacks him for interrupting). As a result, Stan and Kyle suggest that they permanently abstain from using cat urine.

The new drug craze becomes national, with Fox News calling it "cheesing" (because it's fon to due). Kyle's parents, horrified, bring it to the attention of other parents and Gerald Broflovski drafts a bill that will make cats illegal in South Park, whereupon all cats are subsequently taken into custody by the DEA. Cartman hides Mr. Kitty in his attic and suggests that it "write a diary" (a reference to Anne Frank, who addressed an imaginary friend in her diary as "dear Kitty") and also reluctantly hides many of the neighborhood cats.

Kenny, meanwhile, is still able to acquire cat urine and is now addicted. The boys try to stop his cheesing addiction, threatening to tell on him, and confiscate his cat. Kyle's mother Sheila finds the cat in Kyle's dresser drawer, but Kyle denies that it is his. He is nevertheless grounded and Gerald takes the cat downstairs, where it is revealed that Gerald himself was once a user. Despite being clean for ten years, temptation takes over and Gerald cheeses himself "one last time". Under the influence, he finds himself in the fantasy world, flying a B-17G ( a parody of the segment "B-17"). After encountering the woman with the large breasts, he is annoyed to find that Kenny is there, too. They are told that they must battle at the "Breastriary in Nippopolis." Back in reality, a large audience is watching Gerald and Kenny fight at the playground (still believing themselves to be in the fantasy world), shocking Sheila and embarrassing Kyle. Gerald makes a public apology with a very indignant Sheila by his side, and lifts the ban on cats. He tells his audience that it is not the fault of cats; the cats only produce urine while people actively choose to use it.

At the end of the episode, Cartman says he has learned that you cannot deprive a living being of its freedom. Kyle, angered by the fact that Cartman is insensitive to the persecution Jewish people suffered during World War II, asks Cartman if he does not notice a similarity between the recent happenings and anything else in history. The boys then find Kenny, to their delight, sniffing a flower, claiming that he is getting "high on life". Suddenly Kenny starts rapidly sniffing a handful of flowers, causing him to be transported back to his drug-induced fantasy world much to Stan, Kyle and Cartman's dismay as they run toward Kenny yelling angrily, trying to subdue him and call him back to reality.

Reception

IGN gave the episode a 9.0 out of 10[4], stating

Finally, this is an episode made up of great small moments. There's Cartman completely missing the "historical parallels" found in his saving the cats. Butters calmly helping Kenny even after getting puked on. Mr. Mackey realizing he shouldn't have told the kids all the different ways to get high. Kyle's cat innocently meowing while trapped in a ziplock bag as Gerald lectures. And – my personal favorite - the alternate name for cheesing: "Mary Jane piss in your face fun time." All in all, this is a terrific episode – funny throughout – and not just because the last two pretty much sucked. South Park is, after a rough start, back and in top form.

Production

The episode took eight weeks to complete, which is eight times that of a normal episode, due to the use of traditional animation in order to make it resemble the film Heavy Metal. It also reveals the origin of Kenny's car, which was sometimes an actual 3-D model instead of animation.[5] Two different songs are played (alternating) in the "cheese trip" portions of the episode, the first (and third) one is "Heavy Metal (Takin' a Ride)" by Don Felder, with the second (and fourth) one being "Heavy Metal" by Sammy Hagar. Radar Rider by Riggs is played briefly during the arena scene.[6] [7] All three songs originally appeared on the Heavy Metal Soundtrack.
