South Park is the American adult sitcom that everyone loves to hate. As much as we can take the moral high-ground and look down at the characters' offensive actions and antics, we ultimately can't help but succumb to the likes of Eric Cartman and his horrendously inventive plans.
From slavery to a second Holocaust to imagery of Muhammad, South Park really does test the moral compass of its viewers and the very limited (or seemingly non-existent...) boundaries of Comedy Central.
Since 1997, South Park has indulged us into the weird and wacky lives of Eric Cartman, Stan Marsh, Kyle Broflovski, Kenny McCormick and a host of eccentric additional characters. The Trey Parker and Matt Stone creation hasn't been without its fair share of controversy, but the dark, surreal humour and satire has remained a consistent part of Comedy Central's line-up.
With scenes and episodes based on themes beyond our most inventive TV imaginations, the line between reality and falsification when discussing the sitcom can be blurred.
With that in mind, how well do you know Cartman? Can you determine the Cartman truths from the Cartman lies?
