"SOUTH PARK'S" 100TH EPISODE PREMIERES WEDNESDAY, APRIL 9
AT 10:00 P.M. ON COMEDY CENTRAL®
Legendary Television Producer Norman Lear Collaborates With "South Park" Creators
NEW YORK, April 7, 2003 -- Stan, Kyle, Kenny and Cartman learn about the politics of war and the consequences of homework when "South Park" premieres its 100th episode on Wednesday, April 9 at 10:00 p.m. on COMEDY CENTRAL.
Completely unaffected by the war raging in the middle east, Stan, Kyle, Kenny and Cartman join in anti-war protests in order to get out of school. Mr. Garrison, an extreme supporter of the war, retaliates by assigning them book reports on the country's founding fathers. Ever the lazy student, Cartman induces his own flashback to avoid studying and travels back to 1776 where he plays an important role in the historic signing of the Declaration of Independence.
Legendary television producer Norman Lear ("All in the Family") collaborates with Matt Stone and Trey Parker on several episodes this season, including this one. The idea for this episode was born of Lear's passion to inspire young people to participate in civic activism and to exercise their rights. As one of the sole owners of an original copy of the Declaration of Independence, Lear currently sponsors a national tour for people to view the historic document.
