Mr. Hankey arrives in a non-Christmas episode. What a delightful treat! When Hollywood brings it’s healthy-eating, high-falooting doogooderie fest to South Park in the form of the Sundance Film Festival, it’s determined to ruin the charming quality of this small town and force it to be just like miserable Los Angeles.
Moreover, all the unfortunate poop that results from such obnoxious diets destroys Mr. Hankey’s ecosystem (and South Park in the meantime) and so Mr. Hankey comes to the surface, sick and in need of people to leave. He says:
“Film festivals shouldn’t be about what celebrities are coming or what film is going to get shown. It should be about people getting together and watching movies, and about people who can never get their movies seen having the chance to have it watched, if only once. A good film festival should be something where we all say, ‘Ah let’s forget about lawyers and agents and studios and celebrities. Let’s forget all those things for just a while and just watch some new art.’”
Then he destroys everyone with a storm of poop Fantasia style.
Some of you may know that my criteria for rating movies is actually with the number of Chocolate Salty Balls I award them – obviously a method inspired by this episode.
