This statement: "This is the only episode to feature black voice actors other than Issac Hayes."
is incorrect. The actor who voices Token, Adrien Beard, is African American. See the following picture (Beard is on the right):
I'm going to remove the statement.
I read an interview not too long ago were Matt and Trey said they were pressured to make this episode by their producer, who's Catholic and didn't like Reeves. I'll try to find that article --ObidAlor 01:03, 3 November 2006 (UTC)
- Hehe, the producer can pressure them to make this? While allowing them to make episodes such as "Bloody Mary". Sounds strange if true. Peoplesunionpro 04:32, 17 November 2006 (UTC)
- From http://www.starpulse.com/news/index.php/2006/07/23/matt_stone_not_worried_about_south_park_ --- "For a long time we're like, 'Maybe that's not cool.' So we actually went through a whole season not doing it. The next season we were out of idea and we're like, 'We've got the Christopher Reeve sucking stem cells idea, but that's really too brutal.' It just so happened that he was on (CNN show) Larry King Live that night, and our producer, who is, like, our sounding board because she goes to church every Sunday morning, was like, 'You know what? F**k him.' He really was taking up this cause of, 'Everyone needs to help me out.' Right before he died, I think he started going a little crazy, but he started getting really weird about it (stem-cell research)." - Trey Parker Peoplesunionpro 04:42, 17 November 2006 (UTC)
Black voice actors trivia
After I moved and removed several non-trivia bits from the trivia section it was left with only this:
- On the creator's commentary, Trey Parker said that because no one on the South Park staff (besides Adrien Beard, Vernon Chatman, and Isaac Hayes who provide the voices of Token Black, Towelie, and Chef respectively) is African American, he had to go out into the street and find three or four black men to record the voices of The Bloods and The Crips.
I went ahead and took this out because 1) it doesn't seem particularly relevant, 2) leaving it in would mean a whole section for a sole bullet point (which I think is kind of awkward), and 3) we're not really supposed to have trivia sections on wikipedia in the first place. Feel free to put it back in if you disagree about the statement's relevance. --Ddawn23 08:34, 12 May 2007 (UTC)
- Hmm... I have... dare I say it... removed the bullet point! Seriously, it's a production related fact – of course it's worth mentioning! I am reinserting it. Hearfourmewesique (talk) 13:20, 25 July 2009 (UTC)
Hey guys, calling it "Pop-Culture References" or anything else doesn't make a trivia section anything but a trivia section. Also, all three trivia references were already mentioned in the plot summary as they should be, so I deleted the entire section. Don't add it back in, because it's all already in the article; I only removed a redundancy and a bad wikipedia habit. Professor Chaos (talk) 07:54, 8 February 2008 (UTC)
==MUSIC== This took me a while to find out and i thought it should be mentioned here as this is the first place that i thought of and seeing as how it wasnt mentioned here i will mention it; All of the rap songs used in that episode came from the Mastersource music catalog. The song playing during that scene (and several times throughout the episode) was "Fonk" by Nathanial Grogan. The other two songs I heard in that episode were "Folks" (also by Nathanial Grogan) and "Check Ya Motivation" by BB Swing. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 220.127.116.11 (talk) 03:50, 3 September 2010 (UTC)
