30. Handicapped children have a fight

Everyone knew “Cripple Fight” was going to be an offensive episode. The title alone guarantees it. And that’s precisely what happened when the episode aired.

The fifth season episode marks the first appearance of Jimmy, who has since become a South Park mainstay. Jimmy is a mentally handicapped boy who loves to perform stand-up comedy. He proves to be a hit with the residents and gets popular.

The other handicapped boy in town, Timmy, grows very jealous of Jimmy’s attention. After attempting to kill Jimmy, the two eventually break out into a fist fight. Locals watch, but nobody is more excited than Eric Cartman, who screams, “Cripple fight!”

Seeing two handicapped boys having a “cripple fight” on television was certainly a first at the time.
