How Trey Parker And Matt Stone Made South Park A Success

The show is done almost entirely in-house by Parker, Stone and their staff of about 70 people. There is enough computer animation technology in the studio to remake “Finding Nemo.” But early on they hired a software consultant to make the computers “retarded,” as one “South Park” veteran puts it, so that shows would have the same homemade look as the crude cartoons Parker and Stone made in college with construction papers and scissors.

Very good article that tries to explain how the two controversial creators keep the show fresh and we also hear about some of the behind-the-scenes stuff that happens during production of a South Park episode.

(I’m in desperate need of a South Park fix that can tide me over until the first three seasons arrive from Amazon)
