Season Six of 'South Park'

I really love season six of South Park. Even though I missed Kenny, I think taking him out for a while really rejuvenated the show and led to some excellent stories. In this season Butters and Tweek take turns replacing Kenny but the boys find neither of them are fit. Cartman ends up drinking Kenny's ashes and becomes possessed by him. At the end of the season Kenny pops up out of nowhere and the boys forget he ever died. I don't think I can pick my favorites from this season because they're all so damn good. But I really love Lemmiwinks in "The Death Camp of Tolerance" and the debut of Butters' alter-ago Professor Chaos. Mr. Hankey makes a triumphant return this season and we are introduced to Mr. Slave and the owner of City Wok. Mr. Garrison also reprises his role as the boys' teacher after Ms. Choksondik is murdered. I remember being very shocked when Jesus was killed in "Red Sleigh Down". At this point I was rarely surprised by anything in the show, but that threw me off for some reason. Looking back I think it was an awesome decision and really added to Jesus' character. It was an incredible season; one of my favorites.

Kyle Broflovski - Season 1

 Kyle Broflovski (voiced by Matt Stone) is introduced in season one, episode one of South Park. Within the season we learn a lot about eight-year-old Kyle. First we learn that he has a little brother named Ike who he likes to play "kick the baby" with. He is raised in a Jewish home in South Park, Colorado. Kyle's mom Sheila (first called "Carol") is a total bitch and his father Gerald is a complete pushover who likes to think he has authority. He has a pet elephant named Landu who is too big to keep in the house (his poop is bigger than their couch). Every year around Christmastime Kyle is visited by a talking piece of poo named Mr. Hankey. Kyle is also the smartest kid in class (along with Wendy Testaburger) and loves to pick on Eric Cartman for being fat and stupid. He is best friends with his third grade classmate Stan Marsh and thinks whoever kills Kenny is a bastard. Overall, Kyle is a caring older brother and friend with a good heart.
