Trey Parker and Matt Stone’s long-running Comedy Central hit cartoon South Park has been equally cheered and reviled for its edgy humor, poited satire of current events and celebrities, and all-around obnoxiousness. But is there more to Kyle, the lonely Jew, Timmy and the Crips, Cartman’s bitchiness, Chef’s inappropriate advice, and Kenny’s continued violent deaths than meets the eye? This collection of essays affirms that possibility. Individual chapters take a sometimes witty, often provocative look at “Is South Park a Libertarian Manifesto?", "That's So Gay!", and "Why Is Cartman Such an Asshole?”. The writers apply classical philosophical analysis to this two-dimensional dystopia, whether in Paul Draper’s “Why Good Things Happen to Bad People — The Problem of Evil in South Park” or Randall Auxier’s “Finding South Park on the Map: Officer Barbrady, Mayor McDaniel, and Chef in Plato’s Republic.” South Park and Philosophy presents new and thoughtful approaches to understanding this surprisingly meaningful show.

Umberto Eco once observed that parody 'must never be afraid of going too far. If its aim is true, it simply heralds what others will later produce, unblushing, with impassive and assertive gravity.' In a cautionary attempt to dissuade those who may be tempted, Teleparody: Predicting/Preventing the TV Discourse of Tomorrow fearlessly does go too far in its compilation of reviews of not-yet-existing, but all-too-possible, contributions to Television Studies. In the tradition of Mad Magazine and the online newspaper The Onion, the contributors bring all their critical skills to bear examining the hypothetical scholarship surrounding such TV texts as The Beverly Hillbillies, South Park, the Weather Channel, Mister Rogers and Mister Ed, The Teletubbies, Max Headroom, Sally Field and reality TV.
