|From left to right: Stan, Kyle and Kenny. Yes that Kenny.|
"Excuse me Mr. Naseby, have you seen our son Butters?"
"He was supposed to help me with the dishes an hour ago"
'Uh yeah I think I saw him getting kidnapped by terrorists or something"
"Is that so, well he is GROUNDED when he gets back!"
*Ike makes baby noises*
"Okay Ike lets play kick the baby"
"Kick the baby Ike"
*Naseby punts Ike*
"It's really not what it looks like. You have to see the show to get it"
|I think my girlfriend would say that...|
"Mr Naseby, I'm trying to raise Breast Cancer awareness. I was wondering if you wouldn't mind..."
"He he breast cancer she said it again"
"CARTMAN! shut up!"
"You never learn do you Cartman"
"Cartman is incapable of learning Mr. Naseby so if you would just.."
"I'll take you on anytime Wendy!"
*Look at the picture above to see how that one turned out. Again.*
But one of the things that is so enduring about the character is that whenever he has his brief moments of victory, particularly over Cartman, you enjoy those victories all the more. It's easy for Stan or Kyle to gain an edge over Cartman but when Butters does, you just wanna cheer. He's a great character. If I had to use 2 words to describe him I would say "optimistic misery" He's a miserable kid but he's still good natured and optimistic about life. and I think that's why we all like him.
'Well hi there Mr. Naseby. gee whiz I, I was just kidnapped by terrorists and I was held by, by them for 3 months with not a whole lot of food or water or anything. "
"Wow Butters that is absolutely horrible"
"Butters? BUTTERS!!!! Where have you been Butters?
"Well Dad I, I was kidnapped by terrorists and..."
"well can you explain why you were kidnapped by terrorists while you were supposed to be helping you mother with the dishes?"
"You are grounded mister!"
"But Mom, dad I...Aw hamburgers"
"...Wow, I think I should call child services or something."
"Hey there Mr. Naseby, I'm doing a school project on the finer points of film criticism and..."
"AHA! So the gingers are talking and planning to take over the world!"
"SHUT UP FAT ASS!"
"HEY DON'T CALL ME FAT YOU STUPID JEW"
"Whoa hey hey calm down both of you. Look Kyle, you are a Ginger yes."
"Heh heh heh heh"
"And Cartman, Kyle's right. Shut up fat ass"
*Naseby and Kyle walk away laughing*
"So Lord Naseby, you think my dad is kind of a retard?"
"Well, maybe that was a bit harsh, but he's very...over the top."
"Oh, no no I'm not mad, he's totally retarded. He's really embarrassing."
"Gee, I wonder why you feel that."
Pictures are worth a thousand words and I got four of them. I can get more if I want. Where does one even begin with Eric Cartman? In the book The God Delusion by Richard Dawkins, At the start of the second chapter he lists all of the negative adjectives he can think of and applies them to God (It's actually pretty offensive and if he did any research at at all, he would know it wouldn't be true) However, almost all of those adjectives can accurately describe one Eric Cartman one of the most recognized television characters in history. He does tend to leave an impression on you. Despite his plethora of negative qualities (and distinct lack of any remotely good ones) he is still incredibly entertaining to watch. Let's face it, there are times, not all the time for most, when we wish we could be Cartman just for one day. he pretty much gets away with what he does anyway. Not all the time obviously. I think that there is a little bit of Cartman in all of us and that is why he appeals to us. South Park would not be South Park without Cartman. if any of the other characters were different that might be one thing, but if Cartman wasn't Cartman, the show would be a lot worse I think. No, not 'I think'. I know. I know the show wouldn't be as good without Cartman. He's just...so endearing. You gotta love him at the same time that you hate him.
*Naseby sees Cartman with a bag of frozen peas, a leaf-blower, and his Trapper Keeper*
"Uh Cartman, what are you doing with all of that?"
"heh heh, I'm gonna get Butters with this totally awesome prank"
"Don't you think that he might not appreciate that?"
"SCREW THAT I'LL DO WHAT I WANT"
"I'm gonna have to say no tho this."
"RESPECT MY AUTHORITAUH!"
"What does that even mean in this context!?"
"Mfpmppffm Pmfppfpffmpm Pppmmmfmmmppmmpffm"
"How's it going?"
"Fppmpppmfpmf mfffmp'fmm mfmppfmffpppmfm mmmpmfpffmffmfmmfpfmp. Mmfmmmpfffmpppmmmmppp mfffmm fmmfmpmffpmfpmf mmmmmffmpmffpppmfm pmfmffpmpmpp mmm pmmmpppffpmp. Mff mfmfmfmppfmmfmm Mff'pmfpmf pmmfmffmmfmp pmfppfppfpmp mmmfmp mmm Pfmpmfmmmffmmmpppfffm ppfpff fmmppfppmmppfmpmfpmffpppmfm"
