IN AN ALL-NEW "SOUTH PARK" ON
WEDNESDAY, MARCH 18 AT 10:00 P.M. ON COMEDY CENTRAL

NEW YORK, March 16, 2009 – One young citizen takes it upon himself to maintain order during a time of despair in South Park. An all-new episode of "South Park" titled, "The Coon,” premiers on Wednesday, March 18 at 10:00 p.m. on COMEDY CENTRAL.

“The Coon” rises from the trash and takes his place as a lone vigilante who wipes out crime in the town of South Park. A rival superhero appears on the scene in the form of “Mysterion” and challenges the Coon’s place as a “symbol” for the town.

Careful now about jumping to conclusions. He "rises from the trash". Sounds like there could be some Watchmen parody a-brewing, you racist.

All I'm saying is that is South Parks style. An obviously racial reference that the kids in the show won't understand.

yes, a facebook ad suggests that it is indeed a racoon. (animal? masked avenger superhero?... who knows?)

They don't air them day and date. The new episodes aren't available on the website until like a week after they air.

I saw the show title and just knew what I'd be seeing in here. Too funny...

Spoiler:
The silhouette of the Coon is obviously Cartman's.


Should be a nice riff on The Dark Knight or Watchmen.

Cartman's Rorschach-like narration and Batman voice, plus the Dark Knight-esque score has won me over already.

I think it's a spoof of Watchmen, The Dark Knight, and The Spirit. I see elements of all three thus far.

HA that was hysterical. Love the return of Chaos.

It does seem a mix of Watchmen and TDK (especially the score and the first scene with the Coon at the police hq). I never saw Spirit so I don't know about that but I'd believe it.

"Get the Coon a Sprite, General Disarray"
Always a good episode with Butters IMO

Very good episode

Thought it was a subpar episode actually. A few funny bits, but not that great.

Loved the return of Chaos.

Lately, South Park seems to have good buildup during an episode, then you realize its 1027 and there's only 3 minutes of the epsiode left and the endings tend to tank.

I love The Coon going into his speech then throwing General Disarray into the trash cans unexpectedly.

Last week I forgot to switch my season pass to the HD channel. HD looks good!

I think my biggest laugh was when "The Coon" started doing the Batman growl. And having him keep disappearing in the police dept.
