One of the reasons that South Park is one of the most successful comedies on television is that is as a deep roster of hilarious characters.
Yes, Stan, Cartman, Kyle, and Kenny may be the “main” characters of the show, but they’re far from the funniest these days, as that title is largely held by Randy Marsh, Butters Scotch, and other random characters that populate the South Park universe.
Which is why Mr. Hankey is the PERFECT character to dust off to give their patented South Park take on the recent Brett Kavanaugh hearings.
While Mr. Hankey (the Christmas poo) was a decently prominent recurring character in the early goings of South Park, he hasn’t made an appearance since the 2012 episode “I Should Have Never Gone Ziplining”, making him the ideal character to question about his actions over a decade ago.
The episode, titled “The Problem with a Poo”, sees Mr. Hankey on trial for his offensive behavior in the past, according to the episode’s official synopsis:
Mr. Hankey’s offensive behavior puts him in jeopardy of being fired as the Director of the Annual Christmas Pageant. Meanwhile, at South Park Elementary, Strong Woman and PC Principal face a whole new set of challenges in their relationship.
“The Problem with a Poo” premieres on Comedy Central on Wednesday, October 10, at 10 p.m EST.
