'South Park' re-airs its Osama Bin Laden episodes Wednesday
On Wednesday (May 4), Comedy Central is re-airing two episodes of "South Park" featuring an animated and decidedly cartoonish Bin Laden. "Osama Bin Laden Has Farty Pants" will air at 9 p.m. ET and will be followed by "It's a Jersey Thing" at 9:30, leading into a new episode of the series at 10.
"Osama Bin Laden Has Farty Pants" aired two months after 9/11 and depicted him as a villain who was about as competent as Elmer Fudd, which was brilliant then and is still really funny today.
In "It's a Jersey Thing," a desperate Randy Marsh asks Al Qaeda for help in repelling an advancing guido-guidette horde, but Osama gets his at the end. A clip from each episode is below.
