The curious, adventure-seeking, fourth grade group of 10 year old boys, Stan, Kyle, Cartman, and Kenny, all join in in buffoonish adventures that sometimes evolve nothing. Sometimes something that was simple at the start, turns out to get out of control. Everything is odd in the small mountain town, South Park, and the boys always find something to do with it.
Four boys. One f**ked up town.

Apparently just about every family in South Park lives on welfare. Cartman mentions in The Tooth Fairy Tat's 2000 that his family lives in poverty due to his schemes. See more
Exactly who is related to whom in the Marsh family is never consistent. Early episodes imply that Jimbo and Marvin (Stan's grandfather) are on Sharon's side of the family, whereas more recent ones imply they are on Randy's side. Being on Sharon's side makes sense for Jimbo, as he has a different last name. However, Marvin's last name is, indeed, confirmed to be Marsh. Matt Stone revealed in an interview that Jimbo Kerns is Randy's half-brother. See more

In the later showings of the episode where the boys enter Afganistan, cartoonish sound effects were added when cartman pulled out signs that read "s**t head" and "c**k sucker" and when the magnifying glasses are magnified a few times to see Osama Bin Laden's genitals, also the music in the end credits changed to "The Star Spangled Banner" while the first showing played the theme song.
