For those of you who watch “South Park” on Comedy Central (which, like MTV, is a division of Viacom Inc.) as well as TLC’s breakaway hit “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo,” we have great news for you: The two very different TV-show worlds are scheduled to collide tonight (October 3). “South Park” will extend its satirical storytelling horizons with a plot that revolves around former “Toddlers & Tiaras” star Honey Boo Boo and her mother, Mama June.
The episode is called “Raising the Bar,” and we got a glimpse of the episode via a brief teaser from Comedy Central. In the clip, called “A Pig With Pizazz,” Honey Boo Boo (real name: Alana Thompson) and her mother seem to be in need of a pig heart for an upcoming pageant. The teaser features Mama June holding her daughter over a pig pen and looking at a selection of hogs to bring home for whatever pageant-related task that will be revealed in the episode. They appear to be assisted by Papa “Sugar Bear” Mike Thompson, who tells his ladies that they need to be on the lookout for a “pig with pizazz.”
“Honey Boo Boo want to do pageants with a pig heart, we’ve got to pick a hog with pizazz that knows how to work it, girl,” dad says.
Boo Boo Child eventually settles on the animal who gives her “the evil eye.” Only time will tell how the story unfolds and whether the pig becomes part of the pageant act — or just its parts.
The “South Park”-meets-“Honey Boo Boo” episode airs tonight (October 3) at 10 p.m. on Comedy Central.
