A large part of what makes Trey Parker and Matt Stone’s South Park such a funny, popular and successful cartoon is the fact that they have created a living and breathing universe which is packed with fantastic supporting characters. Stan, Kyle, Kenny and Cartman are the crucial characters that the show centers on, but many of the secondary characters provide more humor. Some of the kids are the logical characters on the show who are used to comment on society, and this is highlighted by the wild, idiotic, controversial and bizarre characters that you find in their hilarious world.
10. Officer Barbrady
Officer Barbrady has gradually disappeared off the show, and this saw him replaced by Sergeant Yates and police who were a lot more wild and reckless. But when he was the only police officer in town (and when the show tackled smaller issues), he was incredibly incapable and seemingly the worst person for the job. This always made his investigations a highlight, but it was suggested that he actually managed to maintain the peace as the town quickly descended to chaos shortly after he retired in “Chickenlover.” This was his most prominent episode, where it is revealed that he is illiterate during an investigation, which sees him join the boys in school. Here he quickly settles and gets an A for his report on Go, Dog, Go! He promotes the boys to deputies (which Cartman takes a bit too seriously), and through his reading he manages to solve the case.
