The Japanese toy craze Chinpokomon has swept South Park’s children into a frenzy. With a popular anime featuring the in-no-way-copyright-infringing fuzzy rodents and a gratuitous video game tie-in, everyone’s got Chinpokomon fever--everyone, that is, except Kyle, who always seems to be a step behind. Turns out, that’s not so bad, because Chinpokomon is actually a not-so-subtle brainwashing program, training enraptured kids to take down the "evil power" that is America. Oh and that video game is actually a reenactment of the bombing of Pearl Harbor--except you play as the Japanese. It’s up to the parents of South Park to save the day by proving how uncool Chinpokomon really is.
Best moment: Perhaps the best party of the parody is the Chinpokomon themselves. The show is typical anime tripe, with characters that talk way too fast, and a format that's basically one giant ad for the toy line. With dumb names like Furrycat, Lambtor, and Shoe (which, coincidentally, actually is a shoe), anyone who’s played a game of Pokémon or seen an episode of the show is likely getting combat flashbacks right about now.
