South Park Creators Are Still Bothered By Pulled Episode

July 17th, 2006 by Laura Moncur in News, TV

What I would look like if I starred on South Park!Trey Parker and Matt Stone, the creators of South Park, are still bothered about the episode of their show that was pulled. The episode, “Trapped in the Closet,” featured Tom Cruise as a character. Unfortunately, the episode was poised to air around the theatrical release of Mission Impossible: III. Paramount, who owns both South Park AND the Mission Impossible franchise, refused to air the episode.

“So there are two things we can’t do on Comedy Central: show Muhammad or Tom Cruise,” Trey Parker said.

Comedy Central president Doug Herzog admitted, “It’s tough, but I think I would say we did overreact. … Matt and Trey enjoy a fair amount of creative freedom. History might show that we overreacted, and we will live with that.”
