SPEAKING OF SCOOBY-DOO. . . Next we have the third season Halloween episode of SOUTH PARK from 1999 guest-starring the band Korn.
While never one of my favourite SOUTH PARK Halloween episodes, there is some funny stuff here. Notably, the SCOOBY-DOO parody is done by people who obviously have a great deal of affection for the classic cartoon. South Park's local radio station KOZY is sponsoring a "Halloween Haunt" where Korn will make a live appearance. Unfortunately, the local priest wages a one-man war against the "satanic" holiday and "satanic" band. On the way into town, Korn drives their "Mystery Machine-like" van off the road after seeing some pirate ghosts. Meanwhile, the boys decide to get revenge on the fifth graders who've scared them by digging up Kyle's recently-deceased grandmother and using her corpse to frighten them. Unfortunately, when the boys hide the corpse behind some boxes on a pier, a stray dog eats the corpse and they cannot find it the next day: Halloween. All is made right again when Korn unmasks the culprit behind the pirate ghost mystery, the dog barfs up the corpse and Cartman discovers a blow-up Antonio Banderas doll he thinks is his Christmas present! Awww, Niblet!
