Latest south park (the (ra)coon pt2: hyndsight)
BP keeps drilling and causing worse and worse events until they unleash cthulu....leading (in a twisty turny way) to this rather weird version of neverending story

Just to complete the insanity the tune is from an anime movie Totoro, which is probably about as beloved there as The Snowman is in the UK.

I always thought it was a bit Lovecraftian myself. Too many legs.

@LATD, suspected as much, but didn't know source cheers :D
@Talus There are ways, its just most of them are naughty and breach IP. And south park/comedy central (rightly) batter the crap out of people who advocate such things openly.
Post season 4. Thats kind of the great divide IMO.
S1-4 its school kids talking about references to pop culture with repetitive themes (OMG they killed kenny).. after that they become more preachy, (but the good ones in a very special south park way..take 1 side really intensely (so audience goes "yeah its about time group X got what was coming to them" and then flip it "dat don made me thinkel" ).. pop culture references expand to lead to more plot driven episodes , less jokes based on repetition - swap to recursive playing on the idea they once used endless repetition.(e.g. here mysterions super power is that he's died 1000s of times and he just keeps waking up in his bed and no one else ever has any memory of his horrible deaths etc)
That said there are plenty of weak episodes over the 200 you haven't seen(I fail to laugh at any bit of the snook in the snizz), Just some awesome diamonds in there too.

Should we list a few darn straight awesome ones?

Honestly, that's exactly what I thought, was on my way to quote it properly when I read it! :D

(consider this an extraordinarily verbose description of a penguin "Tekelli li!!!")
