Disappoint Your Mom and Recreate Your Favorite “South Park” Scenes at LA’s Paley Center

The South Park 20 Experience comes to the media organization's Los Angeles branch.

In honor of the twentieth season of South Park, which premieres next month on Comedy Central, the Paley Center for Media in Los Angeles is playing host to the South Park 20 Experience, a multi-media exhibit that highlights the role the animated show has played in culture. Additionally, Comedy Central is donating all twenty seasons of the show to the Paley Center’s archives, making the show’s entire run available for free viewing to the public. It’s a nod to the series’s longevity and its oft-highlighted social conscience; it’s also a chance for you to sing “Chocolate Salty Balls” in a museum setting.

The real highlight of the Experience, though, is the collection of twenty life-sized recreations of scenes from throughout the show’s history, as well as twenty unique works of art by pop artist Ron English. You’ll be able to pose alongside everyone from Cartman to Jimbo to Satan and even lick the sweet, sweet tears off of Scott Tenorman’s face (what a little crybaby). We’d suggest that this may not have been the best idea on the Center’s part, but we’re pretty sure they knew what they were doing when they installed a sculpture of Randy Marsh’s testicles on site.

The South Park 20 Experience opens today and runs through September 25. Check out a few snaps of the Experience in situ below.
