    Probably the observation one one cartoon and the other the observation on themselves

    Last I heard, Matt Stone and Trey Parker couldn't handle a little competition. :p

    Matt and Trey essentially said that when people come up to them and say somehting like "My favorite two shows are yours, and Family Guy" that it's a real kick in the nuts and that it hurts so ****ing bad.

    Cartman's rant in "CartoonWars" Part 1 is pretty much what they think. That Family Guy's jokes don't progress the plot and are just there to fill up time due to lazy writing, while South Park's jokes are there to serve and progress the story as a plot device.

    Also notice how in Part 2 of that episode, The writers from King of the Hill were protrayed favorably as honest, hardworking people.

    I didn't really see any compeition there. Seemed like a typical love/hate relationship with the other show.

    Either way, they were poking fun at themselves as usual, which is classic South Park.

    I've only seen One episode of South Park.

    I've seen damn near every episode of Family Guy.

    Now you do the math on my opinion on this whole matter... :o

    If you've seen one episode of Family Guy, you've seen them all.

    "Holy crap, this is worse than that time when I random pop culture reference that the junior high kids who make up most of my audience won't get!"

    No, but more often than not those shows have something to offer other than base juvenilia. Family Guy is nothing BUT juvenilia.

    I understand the issues and stories and references these shows are bringing up, but serious media covers the same events better. If I want a quick laugh, i'll go to whatever makes me laugh the hardest. :down

    But that juvenilia was related to the story

    I think that's what someone who supports South Park and not Family Guy would say, because the great makers (Trey and Matt) said so. ;)

    I never said that there was NO juvenilia in there - reread what I wrote and understand it this time.

    I said that there is also something other than juvenilia as well. For all the crude humor offered, there's also social criticism, political satire, etc. etc. etc.

    As is on Family Guy as well. Sometimes it's part of the story, other times it's not.

    Though they're not as preachy about it when they do.

    I was partly to show that they weren't just hating on every other primetime cartoon just for being competition, but they we're hating on family guy for a purpose. They showed the KOTH writers favorably because they were showing their respect for them making a long running show that does not need to sponge off the success of others or use blatant pop culture references as humor when it has little to do with the plot, but has it's own unique niche to survive.

    And their rivalry with the Simpson's is a lot friendlier than that with family, the "simpsons did it" episode was friendly ribbing, even having bart team up with cartman in the family guy episode showed that they were kinda on the same side against FG, despite the commentary that Bart's bad-boy status has taken a dive in recent years.
