    As animation, it's substandard, primitive dreck; as comedy, however, it's gloriously subversive art. [12 Aug 1997]

    Variety Full Review
  • Ernest Tucker

    Has as much nerve as "The Simpsons" when it burst on the scene. [11 Aug 1997]

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • Terry Jackson

    It is at once insanely juvenile and very sophisticated, appealing to a funny bone that, as an adult, I try to hide. I feel guilty about laughing, but I laugh anyway. [13 Aug 1997]

    Miami Herald Full Review
  • Matt Roush

    Crude in execution, harsh by design, South Park is deliciously deranged. Don't bite unless you have a taste for the tasteless. [13 Aug 1997]

    USA Today Full Review
  • Frederic M. Biddle

    Unlike many cartoons, this one actually looks funny, and it constantly plays on its grade-school aesthetic for shock value, with great success. At its best, "South Park" is more a profane "Peanuts" than a downsized "Beavis and Butt-head." [13 Aug 1997]

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Eric Mink

    If all "South Park" offered were poo-poo jokes and babes spouting profanity, the show would wear thin awfully fast. It doesn't. The reason is that Parker, Stone and their collaborators actually have done something remarkable with their primitive, construction-paper animation: They have created a wholly new, internally consistent fictional world and have peopled it with distinct, interesting characters. [13 Aug 1997]

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Chris Vognar

    South Park is either the funniest new show on the air or the next sign of the apocalypse. ... When it's not in gross-out mode, and often even when it is, South Park is weaving a surrealist satire of small-town America. [11 Aug 1997]

    Dallas Morning News Full Review
  • Brian Lowry

    Blatantly designed to tickle the funny bones of teenage boys and those who think like them, the show delivers plenty of lowbrow laughs, at the same time indulging in excesses seemingly calculated to shock the sensibilities of TV watchdogs. [13 Aug 1997]

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Marvin Kitman

    The important thing about "South Park" is not what it looks like or the way the characters talk, but what they say. It's a writer-driven vehicle, like most of the better twisted adult cartoons. [13 Aug 1997]

    Newsday Full Review
  • Gail Pennington

    Even at its meanest, "South Park" is seldom mean-spirited, and it's often outrageously funny. [13 Aug 1997]

    St. Louis Post-Dispatch Full Review
  • Alan Sepinwall

    For now, at least, the satirical elements aren't as sharp as other popular cartoons like "The Simpsons" or "King of the Hill" or even "Beavis & Butt-Head." [13 Aug 1997]

    Newark Star-Ledger Full Review
  • Caryn James

    Uneven ... The series often seems more crude than irreverent, and its satirical targets too familiar and easy to hit. ... However uneven it is now, "South Park" seems to have a future. [17 Aug 1997]

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Bruce Fretts

    It might help if the South Park kids had personalities, but they're as one-dimensional as the show's cut-and-paste animation.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Hal Boedeker

    Sophomoric, gross and unfunny. It's great that a comedy wants to take chances - many sitcoms don't - but the adult-aimed South Park goes too far. [13 Aug 1997]

    Orlando Sentinel Full Review
  • Tom Shales

    To say that the series is not for everyone is lavish understatement. The real question: Is it for anyone? [13 Aug 1997]

    Washington Post Full Review
  • There are occasional flashes of clever wit, but they're largely lost amidst crude language and crude jokes. [13 Aug 1997]

    Deseret News Full Review
  • Miles Beller

    It's dismissible juvenilia ... a collection of poorly paced, lowest-common-denominator setups that are not even sophomorically funny or scatologically goofy. [13 Aug 1997]
