South Park Issues a Rare Mea Culpa for One of Its Oldest Mistakes

Twelve years later, it appears South Park has had a change of heart about one of its oldest mistakes. In a 2006 episode, during the animated comedy’s 10th season, a hysterical Al Gore showed up in South Park to issue a dire warning about a monster that only existed in his imagination. In real life, Gore was just a month away from releasing An Inconvenient Truth; the beast, ManBearPig, was an obvious stand-in for climate change. In the world of South Park, however, the creature did not actually exist—indicating that South Park was pooh-poohing a proven and very dangerous global phenomenon.

It appears that now, South Park creators Matt Stone and Trey Parker have seen the error of their ways. On Wednesday night, ManBearPig returned to the show—and this time, he was definitely real, despite what anyone who denied his existence might have said.
