|List of South Park episodes|
Season two of South Park, an American animated television series created by Trey Parker and Matt Stone, began airing on April 1, 1998. The second season concluded after 18 episodes on January 20, 1999. While most of the episodes were directed by series creator Trey Parker, Season 2 includes two episodes directed by Eric Stough.
The front cover shows Cartman on police-duty — referencing the episode Chickenlover as he says his line, "Respect My Authoritah!" — while Kenny, Kyle, and Stan are graffitiiing "2" on the South Park logo. The DVD's primary color is red. The inside cover shows Cartman attacking the boys with his nightstick as they fall down. The back cover shows the boys bearded (except for Kenny) in the parallel universe; Cartman is smiling while the others aren't. As the DVD is opened, it shows images with red backgrounds: Mr. Mackey sitting in a bar with two-obsorbed Hell and Heaven angels who look like him in Ike's Wee Wee; Ms. Crabtree holding a bunny in City on the Edge of Forever; the bus on the road in City on the Edge of Forever; and the prostitute in Chickenpox. The discs all feature Cartman: Cartman in Chickenlover; Cartman auditioning for the Cheesey Poof commercial in Roger Ebert Should Lay Off the Fatty Foods; and Cartman performing "Swiss" style in Gnomes. In the UK, Disc 3 received a 12 rating by the BBFC, making this the first South Park-related media to be given this rating.
