As a member of the camp that believes there really hasn't been a great American musical since, "South Park: Bigger Longer and Uncut," I was delighted to hear this:
"South Park" co-creator and executive producer Trey Parker says they've been discussing how to end the Comedy Central flagship series, which has been on the air for more than a decade. But you won't hear Cartman say, "Screw you guys! I'm going home," just yet.
Parker and co-creator Matt Stone are signed on to continue producing episodes until 2011, and whether that contract will be their last is anyone's guess. But what we can bet on is that when it does come time to pull the plug, it will be a full-length "South Park" film that sends off Stan, Kyle, Kenny, Cartman and the rest of the foul-mouthed Colorado fourth graders.
"We talked about maybe some day doing a movie to sort of end it all, and that seems like the best idea," Parker said. "That's been a big thought to do the last show as a movie."
