Is Cartman the Archie Bunker of His Generation?


I’m not sure why the the Eric Cartman character on the show «South Park» is so appealing as a kind of «lovable bigot,» but Cartman also reminds me of another character from I show I watched in my childhood, the Archie Bunker character in the show «All in the Family,» as I explain in this video.

The 2 short clips of the program «South Park» come from the episode «Pee» broadcast on Comedy Central on November 18, 2009, and currently available online at http://tinyurl.com/SouthParkPee

The audio clip of the interview of Trey Parker by Julie Rovner comes from the program broadcast on NPR on April 5, 2008, available online at http://www.npr.org/templates/story/st…

And, the 3 clips of the program «All in the Family» come from the episode «Sammy’s Visit» broadcast on CBS on February 19, 1972, and currently available on DVD from Amazon at http://www.amazon.com/All-Family-Comp…
