South Park Imaginationland DVDSouth Park: Imaginationland
Uncensored Director’s Cut
Comedy Central
Release date: March 11, 2008

The South Park delinquents are up to their usual antics in this Comedy Central uncensored director’s cut of Imaginationland. In this three-episode story arc, the world’s Imagination is under terrorist attack and Butters must save it before it inevitably changes.

In true South Park fashion we are given a vulgar, abrasive, and hilarious cartoon. Complete with spoofs on Al Gore and his devotion to environmental protection which crosses into obsession in the form of publicizing a nefarious animal that is part man, part bear, and part pig, the South Park team present us with an almost feature-length film worthy of our DVD library.

The amount of guest characters jam-packed into this episode is bananas. We have the usual appearances by Stan, Kyle, Kenny, and Cartman, but we also get to see Kurt Russell, M. Night Shamalan, Predator, Santa Claus, Strawberry Shortcake, and even the Stormtroopers. How could you not love a cartoon that puts the Predator and Stormtroopers in it? The answer is you can’t, and after watching this episode you’ll entirely agree with me.

There is a great subplot between Cartman and Kyle involving a bet. I won’t spoil this for you dear readers because you have to see it to believe it and enjoy it. But I will tell you it involves the Supreme Court, many outfit changes by Cartman, and genuflection (yes, you’ll have to look up this word if you don’t know what it means because this is an interactive review.)

My favorite character has always been Cartman. Not because he is morally corrupt, selfish, or wickedly humorous, but because his voice is insane (insane in a crazy cool way). Even thinking about it sends me into peels of laughter. The writers and producers of South Park do an excellent job of bringing these problemed characters to life in obscene and downright debaucherous ways. From their voices, constantly killing Kenny, and taking the serious occurrences into today’s society and making is light-hearted, South Park will always be a staple in my must-see tv list.

DVD Bonus Features

Storyboards

In this extra, the storyboards for “Fuck Me, It’s a Leprechaun” and “What Is This Place?” are depicted. The bare-bones animation sketches are presented here and cartoon dialogue is keyed to it.

Bonus Episodes

  • Woodland Critters Christmas
  • Stan stumbles upon the woodlands creatures and they ask him to help them with a few tasks. But nothing is what it seems, and the critters are not as cute and innocent as the seem.

  • Manbearpig
  • Al Gore educates the students of South Park about their biggest threat, the Manbearpig. “Half bear and half manpig” or half man, half bear pigman, Al Gore begs Stan, Kyle, Cartman, and Kenny to help him destroy the Manbearpig.
