2.10 Chickenpox



Aired: August 26, 1998

I’ll keep it short and sweet. I’m 99% sure I’ve never seen this episode.

Wikipedia says the main plot of this episode is the parents of South Park decide to intentionally expose their children to the chickenpox virus. I highly doubt I’ve ever seen this episode. This is the worst preview ever, my apologies.

Matt’s Review

This episode begins with Stan’s family at the hospital discovering that Stan’s sister has Chickenpox. Cartman, Kyle and Stan’s mothers discuss how Chickenpox is better for the boys to get it while they’re young. So they send the boys to Kenny’s house to get Chickenpox. The boys get to Kenny’s house and realize that Kenny has “herpes on his face” as well. They sit down to eat their frozen waffle dinner. There is some back and forth arguing between Kenny’s parents and then Kenny sneezes. His mother directs him to sneeze on the boys. The boys head to Kenny’s room. Their sleeping bags are quite great. They find out that there are rats in Kenny’s house. We then see Stan with Chickenpox at home. Then Cartman.Then we see Kyle did not get the Chickenpox at all.

We then go to the school and Kyle is the only one in class since everyone else is out with Chickenpox. Mr. Garrison is explaining the difference between prostitutes and police officers.
