It’s crazy to think that South Park has been on TV for more than 20 years now, but what started off as a wild, zany, and definitely adult cartoon featuring four different kids growing up in fictional South Park has turned into one of the most important satirical TV shows in human history – as well as one of the most beloved.
A whole generation of fans that were kids when “They killed Kenny!” was a big part of the show have grown up and watched as these kids – Stan, Kyle, Kenny, and of course Cartman – have navigated the same global change right alongside them. The amazing thing about South Park is that it is so topical, so fresh, and still so funny – an almost impossible task (especially when you see how other legacy cartoon shows like The Simpsons have faltered and lost their way).
The entire cast of characters make up brilliant South Park tattoo ideas, with Cartman obviously being a fan favorite. Even characters that aren’t shown all that much anymore – Chef, Mr. Hat, or the original Mayor – are still pretty popular amongst diehard fans of the show, especially those that are looking to show just how deep their fan hood goes.
