In 1997, viewers were shocked when the animated series South Park debuted on late night TV. The show featured foulmouthed eight year olds, singing poos and not a PC moment in sight. Over 20 seasons, South Park has proven itself to be one of the most cutting-edge social commentaries on the state of the world. No one is exempt from the hilarious and often inappropriate wrath of the round headed kids of South Park. Celebrities like Kanye West and Caitlin Jenner have been targeted by the show, with the last U.S. election taking up much of season 19 and 20.

To be parodied on South Park means you have truly made it, and no country has been ‘honoured’ by creators Matt Stone and Trey Parker more than Canada. How do you make fun of the country with free healthcare, low violence, and an open arms policy for immigrants? Stone and Parker have found a way, capitalizing on Canada’s notoriously self-deprecating sense of humor.

With Season 20 now on CraveTV, all episodes of South Park are available on the streaming service, which means fans can watch every hilarious Canada-bashing episode. It’s a good thing we have such a great sense of humor in the true north.

Check out some of the best anti-Canada moments from South Park below and when in doubt, blame Canada.

*The post contains clips from South Park which some viewers may find offensive. Viewer discretion is advised.

“Canada On Strike”

​Season 12, Episode 4

Honestly, we didn’t realize how often Canadians say ‘buddy’ and ‘guy’ until South Park pointed it out. We are quite friendly, after all.

“Taming Strange”

​Season 17, Episode 5

If you’re calling someone buddy or guy, then you’ve obviously gone through Canadian puberty. That’s really the only “side effect” we can talk about without this post becoming PG 13.

“It’s Christmas In Canada”

​Season 7, Episode 15

When Kyle’s adopted Canadian brother Ike is brought back to Canada by his biological parents, the Broflovskis travel north to get their son back. Kyle and his friends sneak into the country as well, where they encounter a Mountie riding a sheep, and take the ‘only road in Canada’ to French Canada–where things are much different than that rest of the country. At least they are, according to South Park.

South Park: Stick of Truth”

Season 17, Episode 9

In 2014, creators Matt Stone and Trey Parker released a video game called The Stick Of Truth that was first seen in Season 17 of South Park. In the video game, the South Park kids try to cross the Canadian border, but find they cannot pass until they acquire a passport. There’s no joke, they just need a passport.

“Where My Country Gone?”

​Season 19, Episode 2

Canada and the United States are neighbours, which means we share many of the same traits and customs. For instance, our alphabets are the same. Well, almost the same. We say ‘fart’ instead of ‘Z.’ At least, that’s how Mr. Garrison was taught the Canadian alphabet after complaining that there were too many Canadian students illegally immigrating to South Park.

“Royal Pudding”

​Season 15, Episode 3

Inspired by the wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton, South Park was at their most hilariously irreverent when writing “Royal Pudding.” In the episode, the wedding between the Prince of Canada and his fiancée includes the traditional ‘smearing of the pudding’ on the groom, with the ceremony concluded with the groom ripping off the arm of his bride. As is tradition.

“Mothers Against Canada”

South Park: Bigger, Longer and Uncut

To combat Terrance and Phillip, Canadian comedians and lovers of fart jokes, the ‘Mothers Against Canada’ coalition is created to stop the Canadian comedians from ruining the children of South Park. Well, not everything can be Degrassi.

“Can I Finish”

South Park: Bigger, Longer and Uncut

Kyle’s mom, Sheila Broflovski, is at the front of the Mothers Against Canada coalition and goes head to head with the Canadian entertainment minister to argue against the Terrance and Phillip Movie. The minister tries to get a few points across in the interview, but as per usual, he gets out-shouted by his neighbour to the south.

“Aboot Canadians”

South Park: Bigger, Longer and Uncut

When Canadian superstars Terrance and Phillip are arrested by the U.S. in the South Park film Bigger, Longer and Uncut, the Canadian government makes a plea for their national heroes to be returned. There was no way our country was getting out of this film without many, many ‘aboot’ jokes, so here they are.

“Blame Canada”

South Park: Bigger, Longer and Uncut

South Park has featured a number of incredible musical performances over their 20 seasons, but our favourite is of course “Blame Canada.” The track received an Academy Award nomination for Best Original Song in 1999. The Oscar instead went to Phil Collins and his song “You’ll Be In My Heart,” which didn’t included any offensive lines. Lame.
