When it comes to unapologetic irreverence, there are fewer shows that upset people from all walks of life like South Park. The series’ creators, Trey Parker and Matt Stone, are no strangers to controversy, and have a free-for-all mentality whenever it comes to comedy. They will ridicule any and everyone they feel like. What’s truly fascinating about South Park is that they’ve managed to pretty much offend everyone at one point.
But that’s mostly because the show manages to stay so culturally relevant, thanks to the quick episode turnaround time. The team that Trey and Matt have assembled, coupled with the show’s unique, but simple animation style means that they’re able to write, voice, and shoot an episode in about a week, sometimes as little as three to four days because they efficiently utilize every single one of the program’s 70 staff members.
