forincredible 22 seasons, Cartman, Stan, Kyle and Kennymake us laughHysteria makes us often cringe in South Park. trey parker and matt stones areking of political incorrectnessandsocial attack, thus creating an incredibly awesome menagerie of characters with which they can target their cultural barbs.
butSouth ParkMore than just the daily routines and adventures of four fourth graders. It's about their family and the other crazy townspeople of their quiet little white country town.
We took 25 of the bestSouth ParkCharacters and rank them from bottom to top, bottom is not very low because there are so many amazing characters on the show.
25. Stuart McCormick
South ParkStuart McCormick, the father of Kenny, Scotland's biggest Scotch drinker and poorest resident, doesn't always have a big role like some of the other parents on the show, but when he does, he Usually hilarious.
Classic quotes:"Well, it looks like Kenny has passed away, maybe we should name him...Kenny."
24. Shirley Marsh
This is Stan's mean older sister who is basically never happy at anything, especially her younger brother. Probably the tiara bound her so tightly.
Classic quotes:"You ass!"
23. Ms. Choksondik
Diane Makesmesick, er, Choksondik, is the fourth-grade teacher the boys hate. Unfortunately, she went to the big school in the sky.
Classic quotes:"My name is not Ms. CHOKSONROCKS, it's CHOKSONDIK!"
22. Mr. Slave
Mr. Garrison had a lover for a while, before he was Mrs. Garrison, was Mr. Slave, he was a BDSM lover and basically had a catchphrase that was hilarious every time he said it
Classic quotes:"Oh, Jesus Christ!"
21. Ike Broflovski
Ike is Kyle's foster brother. It's clear from his parted jaw that he's Canadian. Generally, he's always been a background character with stray lines here and there, but over the years he's taken on more and more important roles, including entire episodes dedicated to him, like "Royal Pudding." He becomes a very funny and angry foil to Kyle (and America in general).
Classic quotes:"Don't kick the damn kid."
20. Officer Barbrady
Bumbling Chief Constable VigumSouth Park, Officer Barbrady is always walking around town, desperately (and often unsuccessfully) trying to keep the citizens of South Park calm and safe. he iscartoon version of leslie nelsonexistnaked gunTelling people "there's nothing to see here" as the world burns behind them.
Classic quotes:"Okay, everyone, try to disperse in an orderly manner, ouch."
19. Grandpa Marsh
Billy's... er... Stan's grandpa, Marvin Marsh, is a mean, senile, suicidal old man who sometimes helps Billy... er... Stan and sometimes fights him. As the leader of South Park's senior population, he fought the townspeople when it attempted to revoke the driver's licenses of all seniors, and was the leader of the town's Civil War reenactment club.
Classic quotes:"If they think they can take my driver's license, I'll be damned!"
South ParkJimbo Kern, Randy Marsh's half-brother and Stan's uncle, is the local population's stereotypical beer-drinking, gun-toting, veteran redneck. He is almost always seen in cahoots with his best buddy and fellow veterinarian Ned, and together they are usually on the fringes of society, advocating violence and/or drunkenness.
Classic quotes:"Damn Ned, doesn't that thing have a volume control?"
17. Ned Gerblanski
He goes hand in hand with Jimbo. Like Jimbo, Ned is your typical beer-drinking, gun-toting, veteran redneck, but Ned has two notable differences: his throat and his missing right arm, which he lost in the South Village. Ned was a bigger character in his early years, and his lines have all but disappeared over the years. Of course, that means when he talks, it's usually hilarious.
Classic quotes:"Looks like my ex-wife."
16. PC Principal
PC Principal is the cartoon incarnation of the overly politically correct, angry Snowflake or Brother Bernie, if you will. He's also the best new character introduced on the show in years. It took some time for the character to find his footing, but once he did, he was great as the new principal of South Park Elementary.
Classic quotes:"Watch your microattacks, brother!"
Chef, real name Jerome McElroy, is one of the all-time classics, if the actor who played him, the late great Isaac Hayes hadn't quit the show for the Scientology episode ("Trapped in the Closet"). Chef is the talkative, soul-singing, loving cafeteria chef who guides the boys in all aspects of life and love. Famous for their Chocolate Salted Balls and other elementary school 'goodies', notably Salisbury Steak,when hayes left, it was a hole that was impossible to fill, so in true South Park impertinence, they brought him back as "Chef Darth" and cobbled together old lines from old episodes into new ones.
Classic quotes:"Hello, children."
14. Mr. McKee
Counselors are often an underappreciated character on television and film, and Mr. McKee is no exception. He's usually portrayed as a naive, bumbling teacher who's at least 5 steps behind the kids he's supposed to be tutoring at South Park Elementary. Mr. McKee is rarely the main character in the story, but is usually an important part of whatever happens at the school.
Classic quotes:"The medicine is not good, eh."
13. Tweek adjustment
Tweek is a classmate of Kyle, Stan, Eric, and Kenny who's been adjusted to an excess of caffeine. While he's not one of the four core members of the cast, he's almost always part of a larger group of students, and whenever they do something bad, he usually throws a fit over drinking too much coffee. Since season 19, he has had a loyal but sometimes volatile relationship with South Park Elementary classmate Craig.
Classic quotes:"Oh, the pressure is too much!"
Jimmy Valmer is South Park Elementary's most popular disabled stand-up comedian. He's a master of terrible one-liners and really bad jokes, but he's also often the leader of the various schemes kids at school come up with.
Classic quotes:"What a great audience!"
11. Token Black
The name of the token says it all. in typicalSouth ParkIronically, Token is a group of African-AmericansSouth ParkKids, he was from one of the only African-American families in town. They also happen to be one of the wealthiest families in town, and Token often has all the latest toys and gizmos. He turns out to be a prolific bassist, despite never having played before, and is often subject to some of Cartman's worst barbs and insults, most of which he disdains, though occasionally he strikes back harshly glance.
Classic quotes:"Jesse Jackson was not the emperor of black people!"
10. Goth Gang
The Goth Gang is actually four, but they almost always act as one. The Goths are a frustrated, angry, sad, nihilistic bunch who are cynical about the whole world they inhabit and, frankly, really, really funny. They are very anti-emo, sometimes rivals, sometimes allies of Vamp Kids. They may have names, but they don't matter. Does it really matter?
Classic quotes:"If you want to be one of the nonconformists, all you have to do is dress like us and listen to the music we like."
A pipe-smoking, Funktown-loving towel that gets the boys into all sorts of trouble, Towelie is a very small part of the grand scheme of things, but he's a classic every episode. His bloodshot eyes and severe marijuana addiction are at the heart of everything Towelie does, and despite what Cartman says, Towelie is definitely not the worst character ever.
Classic quotes:“Don't forget to bring towels!”
8. Mr. Garrison
No character has gone through more changes than Mr. Garrison. He went from Mr. Garrison to Ms. Garrison to Mr. GarrisonTo Mr. Presidentthroughout the performance. He's one of the oldest characters on the show, dating back to the very first episode. Throughout the show, he's dated many men and women, and has struggled with his gender, sexuality, and everything else in his life, leaving him angry and bitter most of the time. He's cynical, biased, and hilarious.
Classic quotes:"There are no stupid questions, only stupid people."
7. Kenny McCormick
Kenny is of course one of the four central characters in the show. He is a sharp, mumbling, poor, adventurous friend who will do almost anything for money, something Cartman often takes advantage of. He also died 98 times throughout the series (plus two in the film). Kenny is usually more of a prop than a character, as almost everything that comes out of the back of his hood is incomprehensible. There are exceptions, especially when he's the superhero Mysterio. he is absolutely classicSouth Park.
Classic quotes:... Actually, sometimes you can understand what he said, but really, what makes them great is what you think he said, so we'll stop there.
6. Timmy Birch
Timmy, the wheelchair-bound classmate of the four main boys, communicates only by his first name, kind of like a Pokemon. With that in mind, here's what else you need to know about him: Timmy! Timmy! Timmy? Tim Ma! Timmy. I think I've summed him up pretty effectively.
5. Kyle Broflovski
One of the core four, the stars of the show, and the only Jewish kid in the group. As the only Jewish kid, he, like Token, is constantly subject to the worst Cartman anti-Semitism that Cartman has to dish out. As one of the key members of the cast, Kyle has been through too much to recount here, but suffice it to say that the show would be a very different series without Ginger, who wears the iconic green hat . He is known for reacting to Kenny's death with "YOU BASTARDS!" Like Stan, he is also often the moral center of the show, in contrast to Cartman.
Classic quotes:"Oh shit, Cartman."
For some reason, some people hate Butters Stoch. Which doesn't make sense, since his character has always been one of the funniest on the show. He didn't start off as one of South Park's main kids, but he has become the most important character on the show, with multiple storylines and episodes based on his behavior. Kidnapped by Cartman, bullied by his grandmother, harassed by the Super Boss, he's been a part of almost every adventure the boys have since the beginning.
Classic quotes:"Oh, hamburgers!"
3. Stan Marsh
If you had to pick a "main" characterSouth Park, probably has to be Stan Marsh. More consistently than any other character on the show, Stan and his family are at the center of episodes. As a character, he's kind of like Lisa Simpson. He's not as amoral as his other friends, and he has a much more subtle sense of humor than most characters, in stark contrast to the show's usually over-the-top sense of humor. He's not straight in the traditional sense, but he's not a badass either. He is an ordinary person. Most people think of him as himself on the show, making him probably the most important, if not the funniest or best character.
Classic quotes:"My God, they killed Kenny!"
2. Randy Marsh
By day, he's a bland geologist, but at other times he's a first-rate Renaissance man. He's a guitarist, TV chef, Obama supporter, medical marijuana advocate, pop singer Lorde, weed farmer, mall security on Black Friday, minor league baseball fighter, internet porn junkie, newbieworld of warcraft player, Princess Leia, and most importantly, Stan's father. When an episode is based on Randy, you can almost guarantee it will become an instant classic.
Classic quotes:"Sorry, I thought this was America!"
1. Eric Cartman
He is very fat. He is rude. He is racist. He is anti-Semitic. He is one of the baddest people on earth. Because of this, Cartman is the best character in the movieSouth Park.no one likes him, but he is in the middle of everything. He's a disgusting bully who often gets away with his horrific deeds and the world loves to hate him for it. There are not enough words in the English language to describe what a horrible person he was. But also not enough to describe how interesting this character is. Cartman, more than anyone else, represents the best and the worstSouth Parkyes. Yes, he was really rude,like this showSometimes it is, but when he is, he's so funny, the aggression doesn't meet the defensive, it meets the laugh. Many of them. Would the world be a better place without him? Yes. does it worth? never.
Classic quotes:"Respect my ATHORITAH"
It's sad that some other classic secondary characters like Sheila and Sharon are left out, but it's a testament to how interesting all of them can bein the show.Let us know who your favorite is!
