It's a welcome change. For a couple years now, Cartman has been an ******* way past the point of being funny and just being plain unlikable. To the point where I just hated the character because nothing he did was funny and entire episodes are still constantly built around him being a ****.

Actually that's one of my favorite episodes. Because at the time, it was just so rediculously over the top.
But then that turned into one of they're most popular episodes. And I guess they decided to try and do stuff like that all the time.
"Let's have Cartman lock Butters in a bomb shelter so he can go to a mexican restaraunt!"
"Let's have Cartman crash a boat into a dam and cover it up and for no particular reason, we'll have him pull a gun on Kyle in the same episode!"
"Let's have Cartman start a christian band to make millions to spite kyle, and then after actually succeeding, ******* it up because beating kyle is actually more important than being a Millionaire(I feel bad for Butters and Token in that episode)!"
"Let's have Cartman be predjudace against redhead kids, and when someone tries to teach him a lesson by dying his hair red, he incites redhead kids to kill all other kids so he won't have to be a minority!"
"Let's have Carman try and start the Holocaust again!"
Ive seen the PSP episode a few times and if you ask me, Stone and Parker were psychic in writing it. They werent shilling for Sony, they were talking about how over hyped the thing was, practically saying that it could save existance.
