SequelEdit

A sequel, For Goodness Sake II, was produced by Rich Markey and released in 1996. It was written by Dennis Prager and Allen Estrin, and co-hosted by talk show hosts Dennis Prager and Larry Elder. The future co-creators of South Park, Trey Parker and Matt Stone, were the film's director and 1st assistant director, respectively, and also had small parts in the film. The "fine, just fine" line that they used in their segment was later used during the South Park episode Jakovasaurs.

Both films have been in continuous use since first distributed and have been used all over the world to teach ethics, as well as being used by foreign governments to train diplomats about American culture.[citation needed]
