From Amazon.co.uk

Set in a Colorado mountain town that gets destroyed on a regular basis and is populated by the dumbest, most vulgar characters imaginable, South Park is an anarchic animated sitcom that owes more to the spirit of Monty Python than to its comparatively tame predecessor The Simpsons. The show's origins go back to a 1995 Christmas video "postcard" called The Spirit of Christmas that a Fox Studios executive had commissioned at the previous Sundance Film Festival for $2000 having seen the work of film-makers Trey Parker and Matt Stone (Cannibal: The Musical). The adventures of Stan, Kyle, Cartman and Kenny became an instant ratings and merchandising smash and the foul-mouthed eight-year-olds have expanded to the cinema screen (Bigger, Longer and Uncut), found their way to the MTV Movie Awards and allowed the show creators/(song) writers/voice-artists to pursue equally anarchic comedy at the box office with Baseketball and Orgazmo. Constantly pursued by a censorship outcry, the series has survived several copycat cartoon threats and even the death of its lead female vocal-artist during its third season. Perhaps the show's biggest controversy has always been that--despite a disclaimer before every episode--under-aged children still see it. But lured by a universe full of Cheesy Poofs and Cookie Dings, where no-one's afraid to badmouth school bus driver Miss Crabtree and where it's OK to vomit from being in love, it's no wonder that children of all ages can't help but love it. Seriously. --Paul Tonks

Series One: The animation may be old-style in the pilot show "Cartman Gets an Anal Probe" but audiences hadn't seen anything like these 20 minutes of bleeped expletives, alien abduction and rear-end insertions before. It set the style most episodes would follow, with the children turning to the school Chef (voiced by Isaac Hayes) for help only to get a dirty song instead, a regular death for poor white trash Kenny and a moral lesson being learned at the end. An overnight success, the show drew in surprising cameo voiceovers: George Clooney provides dog growls for Sparky in "Big Gay Al's Big Gay Boat Ride", "The Chick from Species" (Natasha Henstridge) is Ms Ellen in "Tom's Rhinoplasty" and The Cure's Robert Smith (Trey and Matt being big fans of the band) is himself in the Godzilla spoof "Mecha-Streisand", in which a hate campaign against Barbra Streisand was begun. Other series highlights are Chef reliving Michael Jackson's Thriller in the first Halloween special "Pink Eye", the beginnings of a TV legend in "Mr Hankey, the Christmas Poo", and the cliff-hanger finale of "Cartman's Mom is a Dirty Slut". --Paul Tonks

Product Description

Entire first season of the hit animated comedy. In 'Cartman Gets an Anal Probe', South Park is visited by aliens, who proceed to kidnap Kyle's little brother, Ike, mutilate some cows and probe Eric Cartman anally. 'Volcano' sees the boys going on a weekend camping trip with Uncle Jimbo and Ned, his pal from 'Nam. The outing comes under threat from a volcano and a creature named Schuzzlebutt. In 'Weight Gain 4000', Cartman wins an essay competition, and the prize is to be awarded by none other than American sweetheart, Kathie Lee Gifford. However, Mr Garrison was humiliated by Kathie as a boy, and plots with Mr Hat to kill her and gain his revenge. 'Big Gay Al's Big Gay Boat Ride' sees the South Park Cows' match-winning quarterback, Uncle Jimbo's nephew Stan, losing his form when he discovers that his dog, Sparky, is gay. In 'An Elephant Makes Love to a Pig', the boys decide to cross-breed Kyle's mail order elephant with Cartman's potbellied pig, Fluffy, in order to create a potbellied elephant. Things go awry when they enlist the help of twisted scientist Mephesto. 'Death' sees Stan in a quandry when his 102-year-old grandfather asks him to assist in a suicide attempt. In 'Pinkeye', Stan, Kyle and Cartman are preparing for the school Halloween party when the entire South Park community is transformed into brain-eating zombies. 'Tom's Rhinoplasty' sees Mr Garrison replaced by attractive substitute teacher Miss Ellen when he pays a visit to Tom's Rhinosplasty. It being Valentine's Day, the boys all fall for Miss Ellen, and Wendy soon senses that she has a rival for Stan's affections. In 'Starvin' Marvin', a batch of genetically engineered turkeys go on the rampage in South Park, while Cartman is mistaken for a starving African child by aid authorities and sent to Ethiopia. 'Mecha-Streisand' sees the boys discovering a prehistoric relic which spawns a terrible monster. Can a famous actor, critic and rock star come to their aid and save the world from the dawn of Zinthar? In 'Mr Hankey, the Christmas Poo', South Park Elementary attempts to create a non-denominational holiday play, with distinctly un-entertaining results, while Kyle checks into the mental house. 'Damien' sees Jesus and Satan battling it out at South Park Forum after the son of the prince of darkness's arrival rather upstages Cartman at his own birthday party. 'Cartman's Mom is a Dirty Slut' sees Cartman questioning his true parentage. Could his real dad be Chief Running Water, who mom met many moons ago at the 12th Annual Drunken Barn Dance? Or is it Chef? Or Mr Garrison? Meanwhile, Stan and Kyle attempt to win the America's Stupidiest Home Videos cash prize.

Exclusive Introductions
The exclusive inttroductions look like they were only put in to extend the total length of each episode, which would have normally been done by the adverts. These are really poor, which the creators of South Park (Matt Stone & Tray Parker) basicaly repeat what was said about the previous episode, in different words. Then give the episode away by telling you exactlly what is going to happen
Overview:
This Box Set is a Bargain at under 20 (around 50 in shops!). Very funny and original story lines. But do yourself a favor, and skip the Matt Stone & Tray Parker episode introductions.

5.0 out of 5 stars south park series 1: hilarious south park! 5 Aug 2003
Format:DVD
i ordered this dvd package about 3 weeks ago and i have already watched every single episode at least once! every episode is hilarious (crude) but hilarious. i would not reccomend this to all people but if u have a very wide range of humour and you are willing to let youself enjoy these episodes, it could well be your favourite television series on tv. my personal favourite episodes are, cartman gets and anal probe, volcano, damien, pinkeye,and death. the picture quality is very good except for the first episode which generally has shadows behind the characters. but this clears up well after that episode. the sound quality is quite good, all in all making this a package well deserving of your money. watch it once, and watch it again!

5.0 out of 5 stars Best south park series 28 May 2005
Format:DVD
The first series of south park is by far the best. I have watched all 125 episodes and can tell you that the newer the series the worse it gets. The first series relies more on humour than series 2-8. The newer the series the ruder and sicker the humour gets. If you want to buy any south park series, BUY THIS ONE, YOU WON'T REGRET IT

3.0 out of 5 stars Good (but not great) debut season 18 Jun 2003
Format:DVD
South Park is genius. There is no doubt about that. Well, there is some doubt, as many still believe that the whole series is based on swearing and toilet humour. The humour is actually mostly character-based, even in this series, upon which most of those misconceptions are based.
It starts off well enough, with "Cartman Gets an Anal Probe", probably one of the best episodes in the boxed set. It kind of goes downhill from there, however, the reason being that the following series are so damn good. South Park's habit of satirising faddish aspects of modern life and political correctness gone mad is only present in "Death", in which the parents of South Park's children go as far as mass suicide in an attempt to end toilet humour.
So, in short, this series is nowhere near as good as the others, but still worth buying, if not for completedness but for the scarily funny introductions to the episodes by Trey Parker and Matt Stone.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just adding some more info 14 April 2005
Format:DVD
OK, everything I can say about the series is redundant -- 5 stars!
I'd just like to add some info that may be important for foreign, non-native English speaking buyers:
a) the boxed set I bought from Amazon.co.uk is actually coded not only for Region 2, but also for Regions 3, 4, 5 and 6;
b) the DVD has both English and French audion, and both French and Duth subtitles.
