The important thing to note here is that South Park's vulgar language and cartoon violence is not what makes it creative. Their ability to connect different issues in episodes and create characters that embody and contrast opinions is what I believe to be so creative about them. In the clip above, Reality is a character who has been trying to get people in South Park to realize Parker and Stone's view on society. Reality is used as a soap box for the creators of this show while asserting itself as the right opinion. Although I will not comment on whether I think they typically present the "right view" or not, it is important to notice that Parker and Stone use the juvenile and seemingly ignorant perspective of the four elementary school students (Stan, Kyle, Cartman, and Kenny) to establish what opinions might seem native to humans. By this, I mean that opinions held by these four are meant to establish a view and message that South Park wants people to consider, and it is powerful because it is coming from fourth-graders. Furthermore, the plots and adventures these boys go on are almost unthinkably wacky and creative.
If Parker and Stone were to take a Gullford Alternative Use Task for a brick, they could probably tell you the history behind it and what its thoughts are on socioeconomic issues. If you do not believe me, I encourage you to watch the clip below or a full episode on the Comedy Central website. Note in this clip, Stan's dad joins a social fraternity that seeks to help people realize their privilege. The wacky part of this is that later on in season nineteen, spoiler alert, the president of this fraternity will battle an anthropomorphic advertisement and he will also attempt to censor a elementary school newspaper.
Trey Parker and Matt Stone are commonly known to be masterminds when it comes to comedy. They are also known for creating the puppet movie, Team America: World Police and the hit musical The Book of Mormon. This musical went on to be nominated for the "Best Original Score" and "Best Direction of a Musical" Tony Awards. Matt Stone and Trey Parker do the majority of vocals for South Park and have also made nearly every song heard on the show. South Park has also won various Emmy Awards and continues to have high ratings on Comedy Central. Overall, Parker and Stone are hyper-creatives who love to present their opinions in any medium possible.
