"Miss Teacher Bangs a Boy" is the tenth episode in the tenth season of the American animated television series South Park. The 149th episode of the series overall, it originally aired on Comedy Central in the United States October 18, 2006.
In the episode, Cartman is appointed to the post of school hallway monitor at South Park Elementary. In his new role, Cartman takes it personally when an infraction is committed in his jurisdiction. Meanwhile, Kyle discovered that Kyle's little brother Ike began a romantic relationship with his kindergarten teacher Miss Stevenson. Kyle and Cartman team up to put a stop to the inappropriate behavior.
It features a parody of the television series Dog the Bounty Hunter.
Cartman begins acting as "Dawg the Hallway Monitor" after he is given the role of the school's hallway monitor. During a shift, Cartman finds a drawing by Ike expressing his love for kindergarten teacher Miss Stevenson. After Miss Stevenson receives the drawing, she admits to Ike that she loves him, and the pair begin a sexual relationship.
One day, Kyle sneaks into the teacher's house and catches the pair together. He tries to inform his parents, but Ike prevents Kyle from speaking. Kyle tries to tell the police, but they dismiss him. Kyle informs Cartman, who becomes incensed when he finds out they are having romantic encounters in the hallway, and catches them in the act. Miss Stevenson is arrested and fired from her job. She escapes a prison sentence by using the "Mel Gibson Defense" and claiming she is an alcoholic, and she wasn't responsible for her actions. Ike blames Kyle for what happened and then refuses to acknowledge him.
After a quick trip to rehab, she kidnaps Ike with the intention of taking him to Milan. Cartman learns their plane leaves in the morning and infiltrates a hotel with Kyle and his crew. With the police now present, Miss Stevenson tries to flee with Ike, but they are spotted and cornered on the roof. Miss Stevenson tries to fulfill the suicide pact she had made previously with Ike by hurling themselves off the roof. After Kyle gives an impassioned speech, however, Ike reneges at the last second, while Miss Stevenson falls to her death.
The idea to satirize Duane "Dog" Chapman and the television series Dog the Bounty Hunter was first implemented into the season nine episode "Die Hippie, Die". It was removed entirely because series co-creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone felt that not enough viewers would understand the parody, and the idea was saved for a future episode. During the production of "Mystery of the Urinal Deuce", season ten's previous episode, the idea was brought back up and several scenes were animated. The parody was again scrapped, this time because Parker and Stone felt dissatisfied with the episode and virtually overhauled it. During production of "Miss Teacher Bangs a Boy", the idea was again brought up, this time it would remain in the episode.
Dan Iverson of IGN gave the episode a score of 8.0 out of 10, summarizing his review with: "Although some may disagree, we believe that there wasn't really anything offensive in this episode. The subject matter definitely could have swung that way, but instead the over-exaggerated satire lent the episode humor that wouldn't normally be found in the situation. We thank the creators of South Park for turning around the 10th season, as the first couple episodes weren't great, but since they came back from their hiatus it has been one good episode after another. Let's all hope that this trend continues."
Chapman reacted to this episode in his autobiography You Can Run But You Can't Hide, stating that he was very pleased with it, commenting, "You know you've really made it when they include you on their show."
