Eric Cartman + Cthullu = Totally Awesome

South Park is one of my favorite shows on TV. Sometimes there is an episodes suring a season that kind of stands out, and becomes my favorite. the recent “Coon and Friends”, s Three-episode story arc trilogy was one of them.

Coon 2: Hindsight
The Coon has expanded his justice league to include a team of crime-fighters known as Coon and Friends. But another superhero keeps grabbing all the headlines. Captain Hindsight becomes the Coons biggest challenge. While the nation looks for a hero to get them through a national disaster, dissention develops within the ranks of Coon and Friends.

Mysterion Rises
In the second part of this memorable trilogy, Coon and Friends, now led by Mysterion, work together to help save the people of the Gulf from the dark lord, Cthulhu. The Coon, scorned by his fellow super heroes and working alone, is out for revenge.

You could tell that they really reseached their superhero mythology, not to mention Lovecraft lore with these episodes.
I remember once talking to a friend YEARS ago, around the time South Park was just starting, and suggested that there should be a show where Cartman meets HP Lovecrafts’ “Dark Lord” , and the other “Old Ones”, that it would be a wacked episode.
But Eric Cartman actually befriending Cthullu— A Match made in R’Lyeh!

( Part 2 of this post is coming! )
