The Marshes

From left to right: Randy, Stan, Shelley, Sharon and Grandpa Marvin.

Stan Marsh

Randy and Sharon Marsh

Randy and Sharon Marsh (née Kimble)[1] are the most prominent set of parents on the show. Their first names are derived from the first names of series co-creator Trey Parker's parents,[2] and Parker describes Randy as "the biggest dingbat in the entire show".[3] Randy is voiced by Parker. Sharon was originally voiced by Mary Kay Bergman, later Eliza Schneider, and is currently voiced by April Stewart.

Randy and Sharon have known each other since childhood.[4] Taking liberties with its floating timeline, the show established Randy and Sharon as being a couple as young adults during the flower power era,[5] while in the present day they still appear to be no older than their mid-forties. As husband and wife, the two tend to be content with each other. They maintain steady friendships with the parents of Stan's friends, and are revealed as enjoying the act of watching pornography together in order to enhance their sexual relationship.[6] Their marriage has not been without its frequent arguments, which are usually instigated when Sharon is annoyed, ashamed, or disgusted by Randy's eccentricities. The two even once went through a brief divorce. After quickly entering a new relationship, Sharon realized how much she was still in love with Randy, and the two promptly reconciled.[4] Randy and Sharon tend to showcase liberal viewpoints, having protested the 2003 invasion of Iraq[7] and supported Barack Obama during the 2008 presidential race.[8]

Like Parker's father, Randy is a geologist, making his first appearance in the series while monitoring a seismometer in the episode "Volcano". Aside from briefly taking a job as an associate at a Walmart-like discount store,[9] and being portrayed as working in this capacity until he was fired at the end of the 12th season,[8] In "You Have 0 Friends" it is revealed that he got another job which has yet to be shown. The specifics of his new employer are unknown, however it has been shown that his current employment involves geology.[10] It is also revealed in "Something You Can Do with Your Finger" that a teenaged Randy had been a member of a boyband known as the "The Ghetto Avenue Boys" and enjoyed a fleeting period of fame before the band was replaced and Randy was forced to move back to South Park. Upon returning to South Park, Randy's involvement with the band was the object of ridicule amongst the towns' inhabitants, prompting Randy to discourage his son's efforts to form a band with his friends. A recurring character trait of Randy's is his being prone to overreacting and obsessively seizing upon irrational ideas and fads, whether by himself or as part of a large contingent of the town's adult population. Though the show frequently depicts him to be a moderate drinker, numerous episodes have dealt with Randy's exorbitant behavior brought upon by his severe intoxication.[8][11][12][13]

Sharon makes her first appearance in "An Elephant Makes Love to a Pig". In one brief moment in the episode "Death", she is mistakenly called Carol, as is Sheila Broflovski. She has never been portrayed in a work capacity on the show, but is briefly depicted as a receptionist at Tom's Rhinoplasty, a local surgical clinic, in South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut. She has close-cropped brown hair, and wears a brown long-sleeved pullover adorned with red ruffles at the cuffs and collar, and dark blue pants (her sweater looks like an elongated version of the coat worn by her son). Sharon's breasts are the subject of infatuation by several of the town's prepubescent boys, including Butters, much to Stan's annoyance and disgust. Though they are said to be very attractive, it is not known if Sharon knows of the town's opinion of her breasts.[14][15] During the episode "You're Getting Old", Randy and Sharon separated, indicating deep discontent with their marriage. In the next episode Ass Burgers they get back together again.

Shelley Marsh

Shelley Lynn Marsh is Randy and Sharon's daughter and Stan's older sister. The character was voiced by Mary Kay Bergman until Bergman's death, and Shelley has subsequently been voiced by Eliza Schneider. Her new voice artist is April Stewart.

Shelley has an extremely aggressive temper and has very little respect for Stan and his friends, usually referring to them as "turds". In "An Elephant Makes Love to a Pig", she physically abused him, hurled him around their house, and in the feature film South Park: Bigger, Longer, Uncut, she demolished a wooden chair over his head. This does not mean she hates her brother, as in the former episode she lies to protect him from being sent away. There have been other moments when she also seems to have superhuman strength, and once had the ability to lift a piano over her head with ease, seen during "Mr. Hankey's Christmas Classics". She does help Stan when he is in real danger, although in "Pre-School" this was apparently only because she wants the privilege of beating up her brother all to herself.

In the episode "Cat Orgy", Shelley was dating Skyler, a 22-year-old who has his own band. Shelley also internet dated a boy named Amir in the episode "Over Logging" who she later met in California but could not properly look him in the eye.

Shelley is prominent in the episodes "An Elephant Makes Love to a Pig", "Chickenpox", "The New Terrance and Phillip Movie Trailer", "Cat Orgy", "Over Logging", "Pandemic" and "Pandemic 2: The Startling".

Grampa Marsh

"Grampa" Marvin Marsh is Stan's grandfather. He is voiced by Trey Parker, who also provides the voices for both his son Randy and his grandson Stan. (Although in "Something Wall-Mart This Way Comes" Sharon acknowledges to Sheila that Marvin is her father, all though she could be claiming that he's her father-in-law.) According to the episode "Death", Grampa is 102 years old. It is also revealed in the episode that he helped his grandfather commit suicide. In the episode "Grey Dawn", he revealed that he worked 55 years in a steel mill. In World War II, he flew Spitfire fighter planes over Germany. Also in the episode he calls Randy his son and Randy calls him his father which, if you watch lots of south park, leads us to believe that Grandpa Marsh is father to both Sharon AND Randy. In another episode "Fantastic easter special" Randy is driving and says to Stan that he was brought into the society by his father prompting Stan to say "grandpa is a member too?" There is more evidence that Grandpa Marsh is Randy's father than Sharon's but some episodes also give evidence that he is Sharons father. "He is also familiar with typically British words as "wanker" and "poofter". Both Grampa Marsh and his grandfather call their grandsons "Billy", although this is not their actual name.

Grandma Marsh is shown in the episode "You Have 0 Friends", but has never been seen with the family.

Jimbo Kern

Jimbo Kern (sometimes portrayed as Kerns or Uncle Jimbo) is uncle to Stan. Earlier episodes indicated him to be the brother of Stan's mom Sharon, but an interview with Stone established him as the half-brother of Stan's father, Randy,[16] though their fraternal relationship is rarely explored on the show. Jimbo is voiced by series co-creator Matt Stone. Jimbo is a Vietnam veteran and gun enthusiast, owning a local firearms store and leading an outdoors lifestyle. He is often accompanied by his war buddy Ned Gerblansky. Jimbo frequently keeps company with the town's working-class citizens, and often expresses a blue-collar point of view during the show's frequent satire of both liberal and conservative politics. Jimbo and Ned were inspired by characters series co-creator Trey Parker used to draw during high school.[17] It is hinted in the episode "It Hits the Fan" that Jimbo is gay, as he is the only character apart from Mr. Garrison who can say "Fag" without being bleeped. However, he was seen in the episode "Scott Tenorman Must Die" peeking at the title antagonist's mother when Cartman saw that she was removing her bra; putting his possible homosexual identity in question.

Jimbo is shown on numerous occasions to drive a Hummer.[18][19][20][21][22] He likes to place bets on local sporting events, such as elementary school football games[23] and boxing matches.[24] Jimbo campaigned in opposition of a proposal to change the South Park flag because the flag depicted the town's racist past. As a show of friendship with Chef, Jimbo agreed to a compromise with supporters of the change.[25] Jimbo has also publicly voiced his opinion on other occasions, such as when he was displeased with a fireworks ban,[22] and clashed with protesters of the U.S.-led invasion of Iraq.[7]

Aunt Flo

Aunt Flo Kimble was Sharon's aunt. Up until "Spookyfish", she used to visit the Marshes every month, and stay for about five days or so. This would turn Sharon into "a total bitch". About halfway through the episode of Spookyfish, the goldfish she had given Stan for Halloween killed her, and this upset Sharon, because now Aunt Flo could never visit her again. Her monthly routine of visiting, and the standard time her visits lasted, as well as Sharon's reaction to them, was a parody of menstruation. Similarly, her death parodied menopause, as the phrase "a visit from Aunt Flo" is a common euphemism for menstruation. Aunt Flo also had Parkinson's disease.

The Broflovskis

From left to right: Ike, Sheila and Gerald.

Kyle Broflovski, PhD

He is a 9 year old student at South Park Elementary, who also holds a PHD in Thanksgiving Studies from The Devry Institute. It is believed he earned this degree online. He also teaches courses at Devry, where they are serious about success.

Gerald and Sheila Broflovski

Gerald and Sheila Broflovski are an upper-middle-class married Jewish couple who raise their nine-year-old son Kyle and three-year-old Canadian-born adopted son Ike in the fictional town of South Park, Colorado. Sheila is from New Jersey. Gerald is voiced by series co-creator Matt Stone and Sheila was originally voiced by Mary Kay Bergman and is currently voiced by Mona Marshall. Their first names are derived from the first names of Stone's parents, Gerald and Sheila Stone. Though they are named for Stone's parents, Gerald and Sheila's characters are not largely inspired by the couple. While Stone's mother is Jewish, his father is a gentile of Irish descent, and Stone says they raised him in an agnostic household. Stone decided to portray the character of Gerald as recognizably Jewish, stating that doing so "creates more opportunity for comedy".[26] Gerald grew up in South Park, and met Sheila while they attended college.[27] Their marriage has been portrayed as more stable than those of the other prominent adult couples in the series, and the couple once overcame a temporary setback in their sex life when Gerald briefly suffered from erectile dysfunction.[28]

Gerald and Sheila have been referred to as Serbian Jews,[29] and they mutually share a strong devotion to their Jewish religion, while expressing deep concern during the multiple times Kyle's faith in Judaism becomes enervated. The couple tend to showcase leftist viewpoints, having protested the 2003 invasion of Iraq[7], supported Barack Obama during the 2008 presidential race[8], purchased a hybrid vehicle for environmental reasons, and temporarily moving the family to San Francisco.

Gerald made his first appearance in episode "Starvin' Marvin". He is a lawyer and co-founder of the law firm Broflovski & Jackson. He also serves on South Park's council as the city attorney,[5] and his role in this profession has been put on display in episodes in which a trial or legal issue plays a large part in the plot.[30][31][32]

Sheila made her first appearance in the season one episode "Death" (where she was originally named Carol), and she exhibits several traits commonly associated with those of a stereotypical Jewish mother, most notably her tendency to stick her nose into other people's business. In the episode "It's a Jersey Thing", it is revealed that Sheila and Gerald are from New Jersey and she was pregnant with Kyle before they came to South Park.

Ike Broflovski

Sir Ike Moisha Broflovski[33] is the adopted baby brother of Kyle, born in Canada. He has appeared in the series ever since the very first episode. Ike has black hair, and, like all Canadians portrayed on the series, is depicted as having small beady eyes and a head which is completely divided in two, and separates completely from the lower half whenever he talks.

Ike's original birth name was Peter Gintz. He was put up for adoption by his Canadian parents after Canada had been 'devastated by the cola wars'. Although Kyle initially rejected Ike upon finding out that he was adopted, Ike idolizes his brother and Kyle watches out for him. In a recurring gag during some earlier season episodes, Kyle would exclaim "Kick The Baby!" and proceed to punt Ike like a football.

It is revealed in season four that Ike is a genius and is sent to Kindergarten a year early. At age 3, Ike composes sheet music, reads John Steinbeck novels, and watches The NewsHour with Jim Lehrer every night. On his first day at school, he ran for class president and won, and at Jewbilee camp, he recreates Leonardo da Vinci's the Last Supper using macaroni. He is also knighted in "Royal Pudding" after saving the Canadian Princess and was also involved in Barack Obama and John McCain's plans to steal the Hope Diamond in "About Last Night...".

Throughout the show's run, Ike's dialogue has consisted of sound bites provided by various small children of the show's production staff. Despite being a genius, his dialogue mostly consists of toddler-like, nonsensical babble, such as "I pooped my pants" or "ring around a rosy". Later season episodes depict him as speaking more coherently. His body temporarily was taken over by the spirit of Michael Jackson in the episode "Dead Celebrities".

Kyle Schwartz

Kyle Schwartz is Kyle Broflovski's irritating, and stereotypically Jewish cousin from Connecticut, with mannerisms distinctly modeled after Woody Allen. Kyle Schwartz has a goofy looking appearance with a fat head and small mouth. He has heavy breathing due to asthma along with bad eyesight for which he has large glasses.

He is voiced by Trey Parker. His voice is based on Tony Curtis' impression of Cary Grant in the movie Some Like it Hot. Tony Curtis' real name was Bernard Schwartz, which may explain Kyle's surname. His first appearance was in "The Entity" when he had to stay with Kyle and his family since his mother was in the hospital.

Cleo

Cleo Broflovski is Sheila's mother and Kyle's grandmother, who died three months before "Korn's Groovy Pirate Ghost Mystery". The boys dig her up in an attempt to scare the fifth-graders on Halloween. It is worth noting that Cleo's last name is Broflovski, even though she is Sheila's mother, not Gerald's. Both Gerald and Sheila may have had the same last name before marriage however.

The Cartmans

Eric Cartman

Is a highly intelligent though academically unmotivated 9 or 10 year old student at South Park Elementary. His IQ may be even higher than Kyle's, though one would never know if judged by his report cards. He is physically out of shape; most in part to being spoiled by his mother, and his strong appetite for greed + lack of desire to do any type of physical labor. His 3 best friends are Kyle, Kenny and Stan. Followed by Butters, then other kids in school. Though hated by every girl in school, this could change as the show evolves.

Liane Cartman

Liane Marie Cartman, originally voiced by Mary Kay Bergman and later by Eliza J. Schneider and April Stewart, is the sweet-natured mother of Eric Cartman. Initially, her promiscuity, often with total strangers, was a running gag. It seemed as though all of the adults in South Park had slept with her (including the women). Although in an early episode she is indicated to be a "crack whore",[episode needed] she says in "The Poor Kid" that she has not done drugs in some time, and works two jobs, even though she and Eric are the second-poorest family in South Park after Kenny McCormick's.[34]

Jack Tenorman

Cartman's true father Jack Tenorman (left) and his half-brother Scott, before Jack's death.

Jack Tenorman is the father of Scott Tenorman and Cartman. He dies in the season five episode "Scott Tenorman Must Die", when he and his wife are shot dead by a farmer who had been told by Cartman that they were going to kill a pony he owns.

In the season two episode "Cartman's Mom Is Still a Dirty Slut", Cartman is told that Liane is a hermaphrodite (has both male and female genitalia) and that she is actually his father, having impregnated an unknown woman. However, in the season fourteen episode "200", Mr. Garrison tells Cartman that this was actually a cover-up. In the following episode "201", it is revealed that it was a lie the entire town told to protect the Denver Broncos American football team, especially since they were in the midst of a Super Bowl run. Jack, a Broncos player, was Cartman's actual father and Liane is his mother after all, meaning also that his nemesis Scott Tenorman is his half-brother. Cartman, being as shallow as he is, is more distraught to learn that he is "half ginger", than to realize that he fed his half-brother's parents to him.

Scott Tenorman

Scott Tenorman is Jack's son, and Cartman's half-brother. Scott and Cartman have an on-going feud with each other. In his first appearance in "Scott Tenorman Must Die", Scott is depicted as a bully to Cartman, selling him his pubic hair, stealing his money and publicly humiliating him, which further encourages Cartman to keep their feud alive. Their feud temporarily dies down after Cartman feeds Scott his parents remains in the form of chili. In the season nine episode "The Death of Eric Cartman", Cartman, with help from Butters Stotch, attempts to officially end their feud by giving Scott a fruit basket. It is revealed in "201" that Scott is the leader of the "Ginger Separatist Movement" and wants revenge on Cartman.

Extended Cartman family

The extended Cartman family is shown in the episode "Merry Christmas Charlie Manson!", where he and the others go on a trip to Nebraska to visit them for Christmas. Most of his relatives (except for his grandmother) appear to be similar in matter to him; all fat (this is in direct contradiction to the episode "Fat Camp" in which Eric's mother Liane states that the Cartman extended family is in fact not genetically fat as she had led her son to believe), with the same speech impediment and catchphrases such as "Kick-ass!", "I'll kick you squah in the nuts", "Respect mah authoritah!", and "No, [name] that's my pot pie. No, [name] that's a bad [name]!". The family returns in the episode "Cartmanland" at his grandmother's funeral, where she leaves her entire estate (valued at US$1 million) to Eric, citing that all the other family members would have spent it all on crack. His grandparents' names are Harold and Mabel; his uncles are Howard and Stinky. He has an aunt, Lisa, and three cousins, Fred, Alexandra (who is thin, like Liane and unlike the other Cartmans) and Elvin. He also has a great-grandmother, Florence, and a relative named "Fat Bob". Also, a possible father and sister are briefly shown in the unaired version of the pilot episode.

The McCormicks

From left to right: Karen, Stuart, Carol, Kevin and Kenny.

Kenny McCormick

Stuart and Carol McCormick

Stuart and Carol McCormick are both unemployed alcoholics raising their ten-year-old son Kenny, older son Kevin and youngest daughter Karen under poverty-stricken circumstances. Stuart is voiced by series co-creator Matt Stone and Carol, who was originally voiced by Mary Kay Bergman, is currently voiced by April Stewart.

The McCormicks are one of the poorest families in the town of South Park, living in a small, dilapidated house overrun by rats. Aside from Stuart once mentioning that he was missing work,[35] he and Carol have always been portrayed as being unemployed with little means of income; they are involved in methamphetamine production,[36] and Eric Cartman has mentioned numerous times that the two are dependent on welfare. In the episode "Death", Sharon Marsh and Sheila Broflovski are both referred to as Carol, and during the fourth season so was Linda Stotch. The name 'Carol' was attached to Mrs. McCormick after the episode "Cripple Fight", although exactly which of the men's wives was being discussed is unclear.

Stuart was childhood friends with Gerald Broflovski, and the two worked together as teenagers at a pizza store. Having been unable to hold a steady job since, Stuart later felt contempt for and had a falling out with Gerald after Gerald went on to attend college and became a lawyer.[27] Early in the show's run, it was revealed that the McCormicks' house was actually a play fort Stuart and Gerald built when they were young.[27] The two later reconciled their differences, and Stuart has been portrayed as maintaining a friendship with Gerald and other adult characters on the show by keeping company with them at a local bar.

Kevin McCormick

Kevin McCormick is the rarely seen eldest McCormick child. He has parted, messy brown hair that sticks up and has a messy face like his parents. His age is unknown. He has only spoken on two occasions and was voiced by Trey Parker with a rough voice similar to the former characters Bill and Fosse, though with a Southern Accent.

Karen McCormick

Karen McCormick is a little girl who appears with the McCormick family in the episode "Best Friends Forever". Very little is known about her, except that she is the youngest member of the McCormick family. Sometimes she is seen with the group as a filler character, but is given greater prominence in "The Poor Kid", in which she and her brothers are placed in foster care, and Kenny adopts his Mysterion persona in order to protect and comfort her.[37]

Grandfather

Kenny's unnamed grandfather appears in "Fat Camp" which has Kenny giving him a "sensual full-body massage" in front of a live audience for money. Kenny's grandfather is also mentioned in "Chickenpox", where Gerald Broflovski implies that he was an unemployed drunk much like Stuart. He also appears to have masturbation problems.

The Stotches

From the left: Butters, Linda, and Stephen.

Butters Stotch

Stephen and Linda Stotch

Stephen (sometimes Chris) and Linda Stotch are a married couple who raise their ten-year-old son Butters in the town of South Park, Colorado. Stephen is voiced by Kirk Thornton (previously Trey Parker and Michael Sinterniklaas), and Linda is voiced by Philece Sampler (previously Mona Marshall and Liza Jacqueline).

Stephen and Linda began appearing towards the end of the show's fourth season, in correlation with their son Butters becoming a more significant character. Their most prominent role as a couple occurred during the season five finale "Butters' Very Own Episode", where they have to deal with the issues of Stephen's extramarital homosexual affairs and adhering to their concocted story about their son being abducted when Linda mistakenly thought she had successfully murdered Butters. Stephen and Linda were portrayed as having established a friendship with the parents of the show's other main child characters, joining them for book club meetings[38] and vacationing with them in Aspen.[39] In keeping with the show's tradition of portraying adult South Park residents as frequently seizing upon irrational ideas, both Linda and Stephen have also been commonly depicted in this manner. Stephen even instigated one such concept when he constructed a mountain bunker as a proverbial "ark" to provide shelter for John McCain supporters who thought Barack Obama's victory in the 2008 presidential race would bring about chaos and the end of civilization.[8] In addition to his tendency to be an overzealous disciplinarian, Stephen also adheres to a strict method of running his household, such as demanding that items in the kitchen pantry be alphabetized, noting that a well-organized pantry is "what keeps a family together".[40]

In his first role as a major character, Stephen was discovered to have been frequently going to a gay movie theater and a bath house to have casual sex with men.[41] Assuring Linda that he only did so out of curiosity, he promised to suppress any future homosexual urges,[41] and Stephen expressed slightly homophobic tendencies in later episodes.

Linda, despite being a strict disciplinarian herself and rarely objecting to the punishments Stephen personally gives Butters, is usually shown to be a sympathetic mother towards her son. Serving on the city council as the town's treasurer, she is also an engineer.[5] They both often seem to care for Butters, but were willing to sell him to Paris Hilton in "Stupid Spoiled Whore Video Playset". Linda revealed she is Charet's girlfriend.

Extended Stotch family

Butters has an aunt and uncle living in Los Angeles as seen in the episode "AWESOM-O". He also mentions he has cousins in Florida in "Major Boobage" and an Uncle Bud who he admits sexually molested him in "The Return of Chef". He has a grandmother who Butters' parents visited in hospital when she was admitted with a stroke, the cause of which was seeing Butters on national TV with prosthetic testicles attached to his chin.

List of other families

The Tweaks

Tweek's family. Tweek's parents run a coffee shop called Tweak Bros. Coffee. It was nearly put out of business by the new business in town, Harbucks (a parody of Starbucks). After a huge feud both businesses learned to work together. The Tweaks are their own product's most devoted fans. Even their son consumes several cups of coffee a day (despite his age), hence his constant twitching and general nervousness. They usually have heart-to-heart talks with their son in times of concern or crisis (such as child abduction or their company going out of business), but unfortunately they often oversimplify or overexaggerate the problems making Tweek's paranoia worse - generally speaking, every time Tweek has a new concern or problem his parents tend to aggravate it. Richard Tweak wears a maroon jumper which is his shirt for work (hence the name tag on it) and black trousers. He has a long pointed nose and dark curly brown hair. Mrs. Tweak, whose first name has not been revealed on the show, wears a blue dress with a white apron, and long light brown hair.

Tweek's parents have appeared in several episodes, most notably "Gnomes" and "Child Abduction Is Not Funny". Mr. Tweak is voiced by Trey Parker and Mrs. Tweak has been voiced by Mary Kay Bergman and Eliza Schneider. She has not spoken since the episode "South Park Is Gay!", which aired under the latter voice actress's tenure, though she has made background appearances.

The Blacks

Token's family. The only African-American family in South Park and also the wealthiest. In "Here Comes the Neighborhood", it is revealed that Token's mother, Linda Black, is a chemist (although Randy Marsh is considered the only scientist in South Park), and his father is a lawyer.

Cartman always makes fun of Token for being black and is very stereotypical toward him. Token's last name in the series was originally "Williams". The name "Black" is given, because he is the only black child in South Park. Some of Cartman's racist comments include that Token has a bass guitar in his basement and that he knows how to play it, both of which turn out to be true, despite Token not knowing it. Cartman bases these assumptions about Token and his family on nothing more than the stereotype that "if you're black, you can play bass".

The Donovans

Clyde's family (portrayed as Harris in one episode). It is unclear what the status of the nuclear family is. Clyde has stated that his father is a geologist (although Randy Marsh is considered the only scientist in South Park). In the episode "The List", it is said that Clyde's father owns a shoe store. It is unclear if Clyde's father changed careers or this was merely a continuity error. The family was accidentally referred to as the "Harrises" in "Lice Capades", however, this was changed back to Donovan in the later re-airings of the episode.

Some confusion comes up from times when the name "Donovan" is used in episodes not related to Clyde or his family. For example, in "The Jeffersons" Stan refers to Michael Jefferson's new home as "the Donovans' old place", and Priest Maxi is found having sex with a "Mrs. Donovan" in "Do the Handicapped Go to Hell?". It is unclear if either of these references should be seen as related to Clyde's family, or if the show's creators merely reuse this surname, similarly to how they reuse the name "Kevin" amongst background characters.

The Testaburgers

Wendy's family. The Testaburgers seem to be fairly well-off and fairly functional compared to most South Park families, though they seem to be less intelligent and socially aware than Wendy herself. Although, it seems that they don't pay much attention to her or listen to her; nevertheless they attempt to rein her in when she seems to be acting badly herself. Wendy's mother attempts to prevent her from getting breast implants in "Bebe's Boobs Destroy Society", while her dad is indignant that Wendy supposedly wants to dress like a whore in "Stupid Spoiled Whore Video Playset", though he was eventually convinced to allow it by the store's whorish clientele. They also refused to listen to her excuses for beating up Cartman in "Breast Cancer Show Ever", and forced her to promise that it wouldn't happen. In the episode "Night of the Living Homeless", it is revealed that Mrs. Testaburger is the city planner.

Mr. Testaburger has been voiced by both Trey Parker and Matt Stone.

The Stevens

Bebe's family. From what has been shown of them, they are very stereotypical. Her mother appears in "Bebe's Boobs Destroy Society", where it is implied that she is dumb and managed to get by relying on her looks. In that episode, Bebe is smart and more thoughtful than her mother, though she seems more interested in make-up and boys than Wendy. Bebe's father is briefly seen in "Stupid Spoiled Whore Video Playset".

The Tuckers

The Tuckers are Craig's family. The family consists of Craig, his insanely tall portly redheaded father Thomas Tucker, who is balding with an orange semi-mohawk, his mother, and his younger sister. Little is known of them except that flipping each other the middle finger appears to be the family norm. Craig's family's tendency for flipping each other off has been heavily ingrained into Craig, who for the first several seasons is implied to have been sent to either the principal's or counselor's office on a daily basis because of the habit. In the recent episode "Pandemic", neither Craig nor anyone in his family flipped anyone else off, even when they got into a heated argument with the Broflovskis and Marshes, but this is possibly because they only do it in each other's company.

All members of the Tucker family were first seen in the episode "Tweek vs. Craig", and were not seen again in their entirety until the "Pandemic" duology (Craig's sister only appeared in a photograph), but Mr. and Mrs. Tucker have made short cameos throughout the series.

The Burches

Timmy's parents are named Richard Burch and Helen Burch, and apparently suffer from the same form of mental retardation as Timmy himself. When they are interviewed on television in "Timmy 2000", all they can say are their own names, just like their son.

The Valmers

Formerly named Swanson (and often misspelled Vulmer), this is Jimmy's family. His father, Ryan Valmer, dresses much like Stephen Stotch, and apparently likes coffee and sexual exchange talk. At the beginning of the episode "Night of the Living Homeless", Mr. Valmer displays the title "Chief of Fire Department". Very little is known about his mother, Sarah Valmer. Jimmy's parents also say the reason Jimmy was born as a handicap because they made fun of handicapped people in high school and it was God's way of punishing them, as said in the episode "Krazy Kripples".
