American Dad! Season 19 - Episode 13
The series' 11th season was its final season to air on Fox. The show moved to the cable network TBS beginning with the 12th season. On January 15, 2020, the show was renewed for seasons 18 and 19. The 19th season premiered on January 24, 2022. On December 16, 2021, the series was renewed for seasons 20 and 21. The 20th season premiered on March 27, 2023.
1. FOX originally had two conflicting season counts under their watch, with one based on the traditional broadcast season and followed by the media and FOX PR, and a second that extended the first season over a year and a half which was promoted by the 'official' FOX American Dad! page. FOX further complicated issues by advertising the final three episodes as a season unto themselves.
3. On October 20th, 2015, TBS has changed it's counting method to one that almost followed the writing seasons, but made a complete hash of broadcast order. This system is not known to be in use currently.
4. By October of 2016, TBS has sorted out the broadcast order and mostly counted by writing seasons, with two notable exceptions in writing season 7 episodes "Ricky Spanish" and "Toy Whorey" being included into the writing season 6 count.
6. On July 19, 2017, 20th Century Fox Television Distribution struck a deal with Hulu giving them streaming rights to American Dad!. With TBS in a constant state of flux over their season counts, as well as the ambiguous treatment of some episodes, this wiki decided in 2018 to follow the seasons established jointly by FOX and Hulu.

As a result, Parker and Stone broke off relations with FOX and took the series somewhere else. They pitched the series to MTV and Comedy Central, and decided it was best suited for the latter, fearing the former could turn it to a more kid-friendly show later on. Comedy Central agreed to pick up the series, and the premiere episode, "Cartman Gets an Anal Probe", debuted on the network on August 13, 1997, while Mr. Hankey would debut in the tenth episode, "Mr. Hankey, the Christmas Poo".
In tradition with the show's cutout animation style, the characters are composed of simple geometrical shapes and uninflected patches of predominantly primary colors. They are not offered the same free range of motion associated with hand-drawn characters, as they are mostly shown from only one angle, and their movements are animated in an intentionally jerky fashion. Ever since the show's second episode, "Weight Gain 4000", all the characters on the show have been animated with computer software, though they are portrayed to give the impression that the show still utilizes the original technique of cutout animation.
Stone and Parker voice most of the male South Park characters. Mary Kay Bergman voiced the majority of the female characters until her death in 1999, near the end of the third season. Eliza Schneider and Mona Marshall succeeded Bergman in 1999, and respectively 2000, with Schneider leaving the show in 2003, after the seventh season. She was replaced by April Stewart, who, along with Marshall, continues to voice most of the female characters. Bergman was originally listed in the credits under the alias Shannen Cassidy to protect her reputation as the voice of several Disney characters. Stewart was originally credited under the name Gracie Lazar, while Schneider was sometimes credited under her rock opera performance pseudonym Blue Girl.
Some South Park staff members voice other recurring characters; supervising producer Jennifer Howell voices student Bebe Stevens, writing consultant Vernon Chatman voices an anthropomorphic towel named Towelie, and production supervisor John Hansen voices Mr. Slave, the former gay lover of Mr. Garrison. South Park producer and storyboard artist Adrien Beard, who voices Tolkien Black, the only African-American child in South Park, was recruited to voice the character "because he was the only black guy [in the] building" when Parker needed to quickly find someone to voice the character during the production of the season four (2000) episode "Cartman's Silly Hate Crime 2000".
Stanley "Stan" Marsh is voiced by and loosely based on series co-creator Trey Parker. He first appeared in The Spirit of Christmas and is portrayed (in words of the show's official website) as "a normal, average, American, mixed-up kid". Stan is a third- then fourth-grade student who commonly has extraordinary experiences not typical of conventional small-town life in his hometown of South Park. He is also commonly portrayed as the main protagonist of the series. He is well known for the phrase "Oh my God! They killed Kenny!" which he says in many episodes whenever Kenny is subjected to painful and often gruesome deaths, and this phrase is very well known throughout popular culture. Stan has black hair, light skin, blue eyes (though color not visible due to how the series is animated), and is of average nine-year-old height. He usually wears a navy-blue beanie cap with a red trimming and a red pom-pom ball on the top of it, matching red gloves, a light-brown jacket with a matching red collar, blue jeans, and black shoes. He has his father's hair color (black) and his mother's skin tone.
Eric Cartman first appeared in the 1992 short series The Spirit of Christmas and is voiced by Trey Parker. Cartman has been portrayed as aggressive, prejudiced and emotionally unstable since his character's inception. These traits are significantly augmented in later seasons as his character evolves, and he begins to exhibit psychopathic and extremely manipulative behavior. He is depicted as highly intelligent, able to execute morally appalling plans and business ideas with success. His intelligence goes further, as Cartman is shown to be a multi-linguist, able to speak many different foreign languages fluently. Among the show's main child characters, Cartman is distinguished as "the fat kid", for which he is continuously insulted and ridiculed. Cartman is frequently portrayed as a villain whose actions set in motion the events serving as the main plot of an episode. Other children and classmates are alienated by Cartman's insensitive, racist, homophobic, anti-semitic, misogynistic, lazy, self-righteous, and wildly insecure behavior. He is also the most prejudiced character on the show. Cartman often makes anti-semitic insults towards Kyle, constantly teases Kenny for being poor, particularly manipulates and mistreats Butters Stotch and displays an extreme disdain for hippies. As a result, Cartman usually gets the consequences for his actions due to a flaw in his schemes or other characters proving to be smarter than him. Despite his antagonistic tendencies, he has been portrayed as a protagonist or antihero on several occasions. Cartman has short straight neatly-parted brown hair, pale skin, (no visible eye color due to how the series is animated), and extremely-fat body with neck flab and a double chin. He wears a small teal hat with a small flat yellow puff-ball on top and a matching yellow band where the forehead part of the hat begins, a large bright-red coat, matching yellow gloves, brown khaki pants, and black shoes.
Kyle Broflovski is voiced by and loosely based on series co-creator Matt Stone. Having appeared first in The Spirit of Christmas shorts, he often displays the highest moral standard of all the boys and is usually depicted as the most intelligent. When describing Kyle, Stone states that both he and the character are "reactionary", and susceptible to irritability and impatience. In some instances, Kyle is the only child in his class to not initially indulge in a fad or fall victim to a ploy. This has resulted in both his eagerness to fit in, and his resentment and frustration. Kyle is distinctive as one of the few Jewish children on the show, and because of this, he often feels like an outsider amongst the core group of characters. His portrayal in this role is often dealt with satirically, and has elicited both praise and criticism from Jewish viewers.In many episodes, Kyle contemplates ethics in beliefs, moral dilemmas, and contentious issues, and will often reflect on the lessons he has attained with a speech that often begins with "You know, I learned something today...". Kyle has curly red hair, a light skin tone, (no visible eye color due to how the series is animated), and is of average nine-year-old height. He wears a bright-green ushanka hat (ear-flap hat), matching green gloves, an orange coat with a matching green collar, army green cargo pants, and black shoes. 041b061a72
