The 2007 Emmy award for outstanding animated program went to “South Park”. South Park had been nominated for the Emmy Award for Outstanding Animated Program seven times (1998, 2000, 2002, 2004, 2005, 2006, and 2007). The show has now won twice, for the 2005 episode "Best Friends Forever".[12] and the 2006 episode "Make Love, Not Warcraft".[13]

On April 5, 2006, it was announced that the show had won a Peabody Award.[12]South Park was nominated for important awards such as the 1998 Annie Award for Outstanding Achievement in an Animated Primetime or Late Night Television Program. It was also nominated for the 1998 GLAAD Award for Outstanding TV - Individual Episode for "Big Gay Al's Big Gay Boat Ride". It also received an Image Award nomination for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series (Isaac Hayes) in 1999. [14]South Park was nominated for a 2006 Teen Choice Award for "Best Animated Show", but lost to Family Guy.[15]

South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut was nominated for an Oscar for "Best Music, Original Song" for the song "Blame Canada". They lost to Phil Collins and made fun of him in two consecutive episodes in season 4 ("Cartman's Silly Hate Crime 2000" & "Timmy 2000"). Creator Trey Parker explained the reasoning for these barbs in the season 4 DVD commentary. Saying, "we were fully expecting to lose, just not to Phil Collins." It was performed by Robin Williams during the televised award show, which was the first to carry a TV-14 parental advisory, in part because of the performance of that song, which contains some adult language.

Another track from the movie, "Uncle Fucka", won an MTV Movie Award for Best Musical Performance; Trey Parker and Matt Stone accepted the award, and thanked the audience for "not nominating Phil Collins".South Park is the last actively-running television series that has won a CableACE Award. It won the award for Best Animated Series in 1997, the last year the awards were given out.[16]

Towelie, (also known as Toweleeeie or Stephen McTowelie), voiced by Vernon Chatman, is a talking "RG-400 Smart Towel" manufactured by Tynacorp, designed to automatically be able to adjust his absorbency level depending on the dampness of the surface he is used on. He is 17 in "towel years". He is usually seen either giving towel-related advice to the citizens of South Park or, more often, getting high on marijuana. Towelie constantly reminds other characters to "Don't forget to bring a towel!" and then, after an awkward pause, asks the subjects "do you wanna get high?".

Towelie often falsely claims that drugs improve his memory and/or make him smarter. It is implied that marijuana is to Towelie's memory as spinach is to Popeye's strength: whenever Towelie smokes a joint, the Popeye theme song is played, as it is when Popeye eats spinach. This ends in an anticlimax with Towelie forgetting where he is and what he was doing, saying "I have no idea what's going on."

Towelie's major appearances include appearing in a self titled episode based around his origin, and in A Million Little Fibers, a parody where he writes a partly fabricated memoir, which gets him into trouble with his fans. After Kenny's death, the boys go searching for a replacement friend in the episode Professor Chaos. Towelie, a possible candidate, was said to be "Stoned all the time. You can't really depend on him for anything", by the boys. Nonetheless, Towelie makes it to the final round.

In the South Park episode A Million Little Fibers, Towelie goes on the Oprah Winfrey show wherein Oprah's genitalia begins to talk, in a 'British' accent, and refers to itself as her minge.

"A Million Little Fibers" is episode 10x05 of South Park and aired on April 19, 2006. It is primarily a parody of the controversy surrounding James Frey's book A Million Little Pieces and focuses on Towelie and features none of the other main characters. This episode is the lowest rated South Park episode on Internet Movie Database [1].

Towelie is one of my favorite characters.This is the first episode of South Park I have seen without any of the main characters. Unlike most of the episodes, I did not smile often. I laugh out loud at many. This episode had a talking towel, who smokes marijuana. He wrote a book, and was on both the Larry King and Oprah Winfrey show. Other prominent characters in this episode included Geraldo Rivera, Oprah's "Asshole" and vagina. I found the sensationalism of the script amusing.
At the end of Towelie's fist episode, Towelie is very high and has no idea where he is at. This leads Cartman to tell him, "You're the worst character ever, Towelie." Towelie replies, "I know."

Leopold "Butters" Stotch

Leopold "Butters" Stotch (voiced by Matt Stone) is a fictional character in the animated television series South Park; his nickname is a play on the word butterscotch. Butters has a large tuft of blond hair on top of his head, and wears an aquamarine jacket with green pants. His birthday is September 11, after the September 11, 2001 attacks.[1] Having a birthday that's the same day as a national tragedy is one of the many misfortunes Butters has suffered. Butters speaks with a distinctive stuttering Southern accent, and has a wholesome attitude despite suffering greatly at the hands of his friends and family. The character is loosely based on South Park director of animation Eric Stough, who Parker and Stone regarded as a "goody-goody" because of his reluctance to offend.[2]
The creators have said in multiple
DVD commentaries that Butters is one of their "top 3 favorite characters".


President George W. Bush has pathetic poll standings because of his position on stem cell research, the Iraq war, Hurricane Katrina, and the Veterans'Administration. George Bush is a liar, cheat, and a low-intelligence weasel. He took the tragedy of September 11th and used it to frighten and manipulate the American people. He lied about weapons of mass destruction and invaded Iraq for oil and money, causing the deaths of tens of thousands and making the United States the most hated country on earth. He appointed cronies to positions of power and influence, leading to widespread death and destruction during Hurricane Katrina. He awarded contracts and tax cuts to his rich friends so that we now have more poverty in this country and a greater gap between rich and poor than we've had since the Depression.He has headed the most corrupt, bribe-inducing political party since Teapot Dome. The national surplus has turned into a staggering national debt of$7.6 trillion, gas prices are up 85%, which the people of America cannot afford, and vital research in global warming and stem cells is stopped cold because he's afraid to lose votes from religious kooks.
