  1. Imaginnnnanaaaaaaaaaation imagination iiiiimaginationoooooooon

    Imaginaaation imaginaaaation imaginaaaaaaaatiiiiooooonnn

  2. Wonder Showzen was awesome

  3. Oh. I forgot it was on.

  4. I predict that the plot twist will be that the terrorists got into Imaginationland because Bush thought them up.

  5. Personally, I’m having fun spotting all the various characters:

    Tonight I’ve seen:

    Cylons
    Stormtroopers
    Alien
    Predator
    Freddy Kruger
    Jason
    Pinhead
    Great Cthulhu
    Khan Noonien Singh

  6. ah I am so looking forward to watching this tomorrow. Anytime Cthulhu gets up from a nap, the surrounding story is infected with awesome.

  7. also, Akira, old or new cylons?

  8. What movie was Kyle’s revival a scene reference to?

  9. Old School..

    But they did do a parody of the new BSG intro sequence.

    Along with parodies of Stargate and The Abyss.

  10. Akira,
    you forgot
    MANBEARPIG!!!

    Does that mean Al Gore will appear tonight?

  11. As for Cthulhu, Rudolph, you have to look for him, but he’s there.

  12. Scooby,

    I was wondering that myself.

    It was also cool to see the return of the Christmas Critters.

    I’m glad my uber-Catholic father wasn’t watching tonight, there was one character featured that he wouldn’t appreciate being referred to as “imaginary.”

  13. We need a World Series open thread. The rights of Red Sex Nation Reasonoids are not respected on H&R.

  14. Akira,
    You mean Aslan, right?

  15. I was impressed with the goblin from the Rankin/Bass hobbit. Definitely one of the more obscure ones.

  16. Where do I send a request that the “South Park Open Thread” NOT become a weekly occurrence? It’s really not topical to H&R, is it?

    Standard L-Boilerplate: H&R is a privately owned site, they can do what they want, etc.

  17. NO WAY!

    you go my lad
    yo ho my lad
    goblins bite and goblins bleat
    goblins something and goblins eat
    yammer jammer whip and hammer oooooooooooh
    down down to goblin town down down to goblin town down down to goblin toooooooooooown…

    I freaking loved that cartoon

  18. man I can’t believe I still remember that. Also, the 15 birds in 5 fir trees song, and the “where there’s a whip, there’s a way” song.

    Rankin Bass rules.

  19. Imaginationland Jesus and South Park Jesus are two different guys, like black-space-unitard Spider-Man and Madonna.

  20. Sorry, iih. I think you have joe to blame for being the bad apple that spoiled your bunch…

  21. crimethink:

    Classical guilt by association! You blame the entire Sox Nation because of the actions of one member? Very sad.

  22. I second the need for a World Series thread. A place where we can discuss the Taco Bell stolen base promotion and point out There Ain’t No Such Thing As A Free Taco. TANSTAAFT.

  23. My balls were dry… then this episode sucked. my. baaaaaaalls.

    Seriously, this episode is off to a really unpromising start.

  24. errr… I meant season, not episode.

  25. TANSTAAFT — not on Red Sox’s watch.

  26. I think we need to devote an entire thread to the Indians, who are awesome and were full of win this season. And who are hotter than the Sox by a long shot. So we’d better include some pictures, too.

  27. FUCK THEM, FUCK THEM ALL GO FUCK THEMSELVES AND FUCK THEM FUCK THEM ALL AND STUFF MOTHERFUCKER AND STUFF AND THINGS FUCK FUCK FUCK YOU MOTHERFUCKERS.

    AND SHIT TOO! I SAID THE F-WORD A LOT BUT NEVER MENTIONED THE S-WORD AND SO I END THIS POST WITH THE S-WORD MOTHERFUCKERS! HAHAHAHAhAHA!

    AND IS KYLE GOING TO SUCK CAR-TMAN’S TESTICALS? THE WORLD WOOD NEVER NOW!

  28. In retrospect, MY S USERNAME SHOULD HAvE BEN DRUNK AGAIN JONATHAN HOHENSEE. GET IT, GUYS? HAHAHAHAHHA LOL. LOL. LOLZ.

  29. UH OH, WATCHING THE EPISODE ON TV THE MANBEAR PIG JUST SATARTED FUCKING PEOPLE UP@ WILL THE CHARACTERS IN THE, NO WAIT THIS I MEAN, THAT THE, WILL THESE CHARAcTERS SURVIOE THIS ADVENUTREWE? I HAVE A FEELING THAT THEY WILL. I HOPE THAT THIS STORY ARC… WAIT I MISPOKE AGAIN> I MEAN THAT I HOPE THAT SOUTH PARK WILL BEGIN USING MORE STORY ARCS IN THE FUTURE (MEANING THAT I HOPE THEY HAVE MORE MULTI_EPISODE STORIES)

  30. Oh no, guys, the tivo cut off the end of the episode! How did it end, guys, tell me, I need to know, PLEEEEEESE

  31. Geez, still nothing about the fires in California! Global warming just isn’t Reason’s thing, is it?

  32. Edwardooooooooo

    The fires in California have something to do with Global warming?

    Explain, please.

  33. I was hoping for skeletor to be the first one to pop through the fence. Bring on Skeletor!!!!!

  34. Trey and Matt must love the old Rankin/Bass Hobbit stuff. They’ve referenced it a lot.

    I loved it when Jesus showed up. I knew sooner or later they’d get around to suggesting that Christianity was all made up. I hope that next week, they show a character who they refer to only as “Prophetic Arabic Male.”

    But where’s Gandalf??? HE should have been on the council, not that whiny little wimp Luke!

  35. The fires in California have something to do with Global warming?

    I can help you with that.

    Fire = hot.
    Hot = warming.
    Tree = land.
    Land = Earth.
    Earth = globe.
    Therefore, fire = global warming.

  36. IN Episode 1, at teh beginning, they showed a brief cut of Joseph Smith, Buddah, and Krishna in Imaginationland. Didn’t notice if Mohammed was there or not. But it really looked like the SuperBestFriends were standing around together…

  37. OMG!OMG!OMG!

    “Edward” is Butters!

  38. Galdalf was there at the council

  39. My bad, you’re right: Gandalf was there. I missed that.

  40. I can do that in few moves:

    Fire = Bad
    Global Warming = Bad
    therefor
    Fire = Global Warming

  41. I positively screamed with laughter when the alien killed the mayor (or at least mortally wounded him). I love when South Park goes totally over the top in moments like these.

  42. Mordred from Excalibur war a nice touch.

  43. war = was. Preview dammit!

    Er… maybe I was thinking in German.

  44. Fire = global warming

    (just like a lit burner = oven warming

  45. Mordred from Excalibur war a nice touch.

    Thanks for that bit of info. I was trying to remember who that character was in the gold mask.

  46. >Fire = hot.
    >Hot = warming.
    >Tree = land.
    >Land = Earth.
    >Earth = globe.
    >Therefore, fire = global warming.

    >Hot = warming.
    >Tree = land.

    Undistributed Middle Term. Like most Global Warming advocates, you are an idiot.

  47. One of the major blazes in California was caused by arson. But that’s no reason for the ecovangelists not to play Six Degrees of Global Warming with it. They do with every other major disaster, like as is so tastefully done with Hurricane Katrina. Why the media’s even gone so far as to make the dubious connection that Global Warming is what’s truly responsible for the conflict in Darfur. So within the context that most liberals do not truly believe in existential free will, they could easily make the case that an arsonist was acting as an agent of Global Warming, either directly or indirectly.

  48. This fall has been a return to SP roots: vulgarity. Tourette’s, giant poop, and over-dramatic epic nonsense about the nature of imagination and ball sucking.

  49. “This fall has been a return to SP roots: vulgarity. Tourette’s, giant poop, and over-dramatic epic nonsense about the nature of imagination and ball sucking.”

    And thank holy Xenu for that.

  50. Yeah, Mordred from Excalibur was my favorite of the villains. I also enjoyed seeing Medusa The Gorgon from Clash Of The Titans. And the Tron guys guarding the castle.
