List of South Park families

The following are fictional characters in the American animated television series South Park.

The MarshesEdit

Stan MarshEdit

Randy MarshEdit

Randy Marsh is the most prominent parent on the show. He is named after the father of series co-creator Trey Parker[1] and Parker describes Randy as "the biggest dingbat in the entire show."[2] Randy is voiced by Parker. Randy Marsh gets into countless wacky situations through the course of the show including but not limited to, microwaving his testicles and becoming the biggest drug dealer in South Park.

Sharon MarshEdit

Sharon Marsh (née Kimble)[3] is the wife of Randy and mother of Stan and Shelly. She is a 42-year-old receptionist. Sharon has never been portrayed in a work capacity on the series, but was depicted as the receptionist at Tom's Rhinoplasty, a local surgical clinic, in South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut and South Park: The Stick of Truth. She has close-cropped brown hair, and wears a brown long-sleeved pullover adorned with red ruffles at the cuffs and collar, and dark blue pants. She is referred to by the name 'Carol' in the episode 'Death' when Sheila Broflovski hands her the phone at the protest with Cartoon Central. Sharon has also been represented as an overzealous parent, such as when she kidnapped Officer Barbrady after he came to investigate the disappearance of those Sharon had buried in her yard because she mistakenly thought they were Stan's murder victims.[4]

Sharon was originally voiced by Mary Kay Bergman, later Eliza Schneider, and is currently voiced by April Stewart.

Shelly MarshEdit

Shelly Marsh is Randy and Sharon's daughter and Stan's older sister. The character was voiced by Mary Kay Bergman until Bergman's death, and Shelly has subsequently been voiced by Eliza Schneider. Her new voice artist is April Stewart.

Shelly has an extremely aggressive temper and has very little respect for Stan and his friends, usually referring to them as "turds". She speaks in a slurred manner due to the fact that she wears headgear. In "An Elephant Makes Love to a Pig", she physically abused him, hurled him around their house, and in the feature film South Park: Bigger, Longer, Uncut, she demolished a wooden chair over his head. This does not mean she hates her brother, as in the former episode she lies to protect him from being sent away. There have been other moments when she also seems to have superhuman strength, and once had the ability to lift a piano over her head with ease, seen during "Mr. Hankey's Christmas Classics". She does help Stan when he is in real danger, although in "Pre-School" this was apparently only because she wants the privilege of beating up her brother all to herself.

In the episode "Cat Orgy", Shelly was dating Skyler, a 22-year-old who has his own band. Shelley also internet dated a boy named Amir in the episode "Over Logging" who she later met in California but could not properly look him in the eye.

Shelly is prominent in the episodes "An Elephant Makes Love to a Pig", "Chickenpox", "The New Terrance and Phillip Movie Trailer", "Cat Orgy", "Over Logging", "Pandemic", "Pandemic 2: The Startling", "Broadway Bro Down", and "Tegridy Farms Halloween Special".

Marvin MarshEdit

"Grampa" (Marvin) Marsh is Stan's paternal grandfather and Sharon Marsh's father-in-law. He is voiced by Trey Parker, who also provides the voices for both his son Randy and his grandson Stan. In "Something Wall-Mart This Way Comes" Sharon acknowledges to Sheila that Marvin is her father (although she may just refer to her father-in-law that way). According to the episode "Death", Grampa is 102 years old. It is also revealed in the episode that he helped his grandfather commit suicide. In the episode "Grey Dawn", he revealed that he worked 55 years in a steel mill and he flew Spitfire fighter planes over Germany in World War II. He is also familiar with typically British words as "wanker" and "poofter". Both Grampa Marsh and his own grandfather call their grandsons "Billy", even after being corrected multiple times. In "Cash for Gold", Grampa becomes one of many elderly citizens to be tricked into buying fake jewelry from a corrupt TV shopping channel.

Jimbo KernEdit

Jimbo Kern (sometimes portrayed as Kerns or Uncle Jimbo) is uncle to Stan. Earlier episodes indicated him to be the brother of Stan's mother Sharon, but an interview with Stone established him as the half-brother of Stan's father, Randy,[5] though their fraternal relationship is rarely explored on the show. According to 2020's "Pandemic Special", however, Jimbo is indeed Sharon's brother and is in the hospital due to COVID-19.[6] Jimbo is voiced by series co-creator Matt Stone. Jimbo is a Marine Corps Vietnam veteran and gun enthusiast, owning a local firearms store and leading an outdoors lifestyle. He is often accompanied by his war buddy Ned Gerblansky. Jimbo frequently keeps company with the town's working-class citizens, and often expresses a blue-collar point of view during the show's frequent satire of both liberal and conservative politics. Jimbo and Ned were inspired by characters series co-creator Trey Parker used to draw during high school.[7] It is hinted in the episode "It Hits the Fan" that Jimbo is gay, as he is the only character apart from Mr. Garrison who can say "fag" without being bleeped. However, he was seen in the episode "Scott Tenorman Must Die" peeking at the title antagonist's mother when Cartman saw that she was removing her bra, putting his possible homosexual identity in question.

Jimbo is shown on numerous occasions to drive a Hummer.[8][9][10][11][12] He likes to place bets on local sporting events, such as elementary school football games[13] and boxing matches.[14] Jimbo campaigned in opposition of a proposal to change the South Park flag because the flag depicted the town's racist past. As a show of friendship with Chef, Jimbo agreed to a compromise with supporters of the change.[15] Jimbo has also publicly voiced his opinion on other occasions, as when he was displeased with a fireworks ban,[12] and clashed with protesters of the U.S.-led invasion of Iraq.[16]

Aunt FloEdit

Aunt Flo Kimble was Sharon's aunt and Randy Marsh's aunt-in-law. She appears solely in "Spookyfish" although characters mention that she used to visit the Marshes every month, and stay for about five days that turned Sharon into "a total bitch". During the episode, the goldfish she had given Stan for Halloween killed her, and this upset Sharon, because now Aunt Flo could never visit her again. Her monthly routine of visiting, the standard time her visits lasted, and Sharon's reaction to them, was a parody of menstruation. Similarly, her death parodied menopause, as the phrase "a visit from Aunt Flo" is a common euphemism for menstruation. Aunt Flo also had Parkinson's disease and sounded like Katharine Hepburn when she spoke.

The BroflovskisEdit

Kyle BroflovskiEdit

Gerald and Sheila BroflovskiEdit

Ike BroflovskiEdit

Sir Ike Moisha Broflovski (born Peter Gintz)[17] is the adopted baby brother of Kyle, born in Canada. He has appeared in the series since the very first episode. Ike has black hair, and, like all Canadians portrayed on the series, is depicted as having small beady eyes and an ovoid head which is completely divided in two, and separates completely from the lower half whenever he talks.

Ike's original birth name was Peter Gintz. He was put up for adoption by his Canadian parents, Harry and Elise, after Canada had been 'devastated by the cola wars'. Although Kyle initially rejected Ike upon finding out that he was adopted, Ike idolizes his brother and Kyle watches out for him and often shows a great deal of affection towards his little brother. As seen in It's Christmas in Canada where Kyle travels great lengths to find and rescue his little brother after being taken against his and his family's will to Canada. In a recurring gag during some earlier season episodes, Kyle would exclaim "Kick the Baby!" and proceed to kick Ike like he was kicking a field goal in a football game.

It is revealed in season four that Ike is a genius and is sent to kindergarten a year early. At age 3, he composes sheet music, reads John Steinbeck novels, and watches The NewsHour with Jim Lehrer every night. On his first day at school, he ran for class president and won, and at Jewbilee camp, he recreates Leonardo da Vinci's the Last Supper using macaroni. He was knighted in "Royal Pudding" after saving the Canadian Princess and was involved in Barack Obama and John McCain's plans to steal the Hope Diamond in "About Last Night..."

Throughout the show's run, Ike's dialogue has consisted of sound bites provided by various small children of the show's production staff. Despite Ike being a genius, his dialogue mostly consists of toddler-like, nonsensical babble, such as "I pooped my pants" or "ring around a rosy". He also often repeats words said by Kyle, even obscene words, as shown when they watch the Terrance and Phillip Movie in the film. Later season episodes depict him as speaking more coherently. His body was temporarily taken over by the spirit of Michael Jackson in the episode "Dead Celebrities". In the episode "Canada on Strike" he stands out in the cold for days waiting for the strike to end. He embarked on a sexual relationship with his adult kindergarten teacher in the episode "Miss Teacher Bangs a Boy", which gives him admiration and envy from nearly every person in town who finds out about it other than Kyle. In the seventeenth season episode "Taming Strange", Ike (voiced by Eric Bauza who was credited as True List), experiencing precocious puberty due to accidentally taking steroids intended for Tom Brady, becomes hostile towards Kyle, and has developed habits that include speaking of engaging in sex acts with child entertainment characters (which Ike refers to as "taming strange") and grinds on Foofa in front of the other characters and everyone in the audience and says that Foofa is an attractive woman, and should not be limiting herself to children. Foofa shocks the others when she agrees with this, saying that she wishes to play to adult audiences, and add sex appeal to her persona. The brothers eventually reconcile when Ike, after realizing that while rebellion is part of growing up, decides he would rather let it happen naturally instead of pushing it, he is also the only Canadian character to appear in stop-motion form first before switching to computers.

Kyle SchwartzEdit

Kyle Schwartz
South Park character
In-universe information
FamilyMurrey Broflovski (father); mother unnamed (mentioned but never seen)
RelativesSheila Broflovski (aunt-in-law)
Gerald Broflovski (uncle)
Cleo Broflovski (not for really relation)
Unnamed (grandmother)
Unnamed (grandfather)

Kyle Schwartz is Kyle Broflovski's irritating and stereotypically Jewish cousin from Connecticut, with certain mannerisms distinctly modeled after Woody Allen. Kyle Schwartz has a tiny body and large head, breathes heavily all the time due to asthma and frequently exclaims "Oh Jesus". He has poor eyesight for which he wears large glasses. As voiced by Trey Parker, Kyle Schwartz sounds like Tony Curtis' impression of Cary Grant in the film Some Like it Hot. Curtis' real name was Bernard Schwartz, which may explain Kyle's surname. The character's first appearance was in "The Entity" when he had to stay with Kyle and his family because his mother was in the hospital. At the end of "The Entity", Schwartz receives a $5 million check after the "IT", a vehicle he invested in, was banned and the airline companies were bailed out. Schwartz was also hired by Cartman as an accountant to see if his behavior throughout the year put him on Santa Claus' Nice or Naughty list in Red Sleigh Down; he informed Cartman that if he cured cancer and AIDS, he would still owe Santa two presents. He later appears in the season 9 episode "The Losing Edge" as a reverse ringer the other kids bring in to make their team lose.


Cleo Broflovski (1928–1999) was Sheila's mother, Gerald's mother-in-law and Kyle's maternal grandmother, who died three months before "Korn's Groovy Pirate Ghost Mystery". The boys dig her up in an attempt to scare the fifth-graders on Halloween. The prank backfires as her body is eaten by stray dogs due to the boys having hidden the body unprotected near the harbor.

The Cartmans/TenormansEdit

Eric CartmanEdit

Liane CartmanEdit

Liane Marie Cartman, originally voiced by Mary Kay Bergman and later by Eliza J. Schneider and April Stewart, is the generally sweet-natured mother of Eric Cartman; though in later seasons, she is a more proactive mother who does not tolerate his antics or foul language. Her promiscuity, often with total strangers, was a running gag initially. It seemed as though all of the adults in South Park had slept with her (probably the women, too). Although in episode 7, she is indicated to be a "crack whore", she says in "The Poor Kid" that she has not done drugs in some time, and works "two jobs." Liane's commuting from the home during normal daytime hours implies that at least one of the jobs is a traditional, non-prostitution form of employment, though the nature of this work is never specified. Despite the multiple sources of income, Eric comes to believe that he and Liane are the second poorest family in South Park (at least of those whose children attend South Park Elementary) after Kenny McCormick's.[18] At other times, it is implied that the Cartman household's IRS-reported income mostly comes from government welfare programs,[19] that Liane has simply transformed her prostitution career into a better-organized, safer "escort"-style operation,[20] or that in fact Liane has never held a traditional job and the family is in a more precarious economic state than their depicted lifestyle indicates.[21] As of Season 25, current continuity states that Liane has been unable to maintain legitimate employment due to constant demands on her time from Eric, and as a result of this economic stress combined with increases in rent on the family's house, the Cartmans are unable to keep up with their bills and find themselves living in an abandoned hot dog stand. Eric refuses to allow Liane to work, instead of attend to him, when he is awake even when explicitly told that this will cause financial disaster for the family, a storyline which may tie in to depictions of Cartman as homeless in the future.

It is seemingly revealed in season 2 that Liane is a hermaphrodite (and so is Eric's father),[22] though in episode "201"[23] it is revealed that Eric's real father is Jack Tenorman, the father of his nemesis Scott Tenorman. Jack Tenorman was a member of the 1991 Denver Broncos, and the ruse about her being a hermaphrodite was made up to maintain the Broncos' reputation since "they were having a good year".

She was named after creator Trey Parker's ex-fiancé, Liane Adamo, whom he broke up with after he discovered that she had an affair.[24]

Jack TenormanEdit

Jack Tenorman is the father of Scott Tenorman and Eric Cartman. He dies in the season five episode "Scott Tenorman Must Die", his first appearance, when he and his wife are shot dead by a farmer who had been told by Cartman that they were going to kill a pony he owns; their bodies are then minced up by Cartman and mixed in with chili for the upcoming chili cook-off so that Scott would eat their remains.

Scott TenormanEdit

Scott with his father Jack

Scott Tenorman is Jack's son, and Cartman's half-brother. Scott and Cartman have an ongoing feud with each other. In his first appearance in "Scott Tenorman Must Die", Scott is depicted as a bully to Cartman, selling him his pubic hair, stealing his money and publicly humiliating him, and continually one-upping Cartman's attempts to get back at him. However, Cartman finally gets revenge by tricking Scott into eating chili containing his parents' remains and getting his favorite band Radiohead to insult him. In the season nine episode "The Death of Eric Cartman", Cartman, with help from Butters Stotch, attempts to officially end their feud by giving Scott a fruit basket. It is revealed in "201" that Scott is the leader of the "Ginger Separatist Movement" and wants revenge on Cartman. Scott also takes glee in the facts of informing Cartman that they share the same birth-father, the fact that their father was a ginger and that Cartman already had him killed. He was the titular antagonist in the 2012 game South Park: Tenorman's Revenge.

Extended Cartman familyEdit

The extended Cartman family is shown in the episode "Merry Christmas, Charlie Manson!", where Eric and the others go on a trip to Nebraska to visit them for Christmas. Most of his relatives (except for his grandmother) appear to be physically similar to him; all fat (this is in direct contradiction to the episode "Fat Camp" in which Eric's mother Liane states that the Cartman extended family is in fact not genetically fat as she had led her son to believe), with the same speech mannerisms and catchphrases such as "Kick-ass!", "I'll kick you squah in the nuts", "Respect mah authoritah!", and "No, kitty, that's my pot pie. No, kitty, that's a bad kitty!". The family returns in the episode "Cartmanland" at his grandmother's funeral, where she leaves her entire estate (valued at $1 million) to Eric, citing that all the other family members would have spent it all on crack. His grandparents' names are Harold and Mabel; his uncles are Howard (who is imprisoned in the Nebraska state penitentiary, and who "attends" Thanksgiving dinner every year via closed-circuit television) and Stinky. He has an aunt, Lisa, and three cousins, Fred, Alexandra (who is thin like Liane, unlike the other Cartmans), and Elvin. He also has a great-grandmother, Florence, and a relative named "Fat Bob".

Future Cartman familyEdit

In the Paramount+ TV movie South Park: Post Covid, Eric along with the rest of the shows characters are aged up by approximately 40 or so years. In the future, Eric Cartman has switched to Judaism, and is married to his Jewish wife, Yentl Cartman. Eric and Yentl have three children: Menorah Cartman (their eldest daughter), Moisha Cartman (their first son, with an almost identical appearance and voice to the version of Eric used in the TV series), and Hackelm Cartman (their infant child, who is like a baby version of Eric). Cartman's children (especially Moisha) share the same characteristics that Eric had as a child, such as a strong hatred towards Kyle, and a victim mentality.

The McCormicksEdit

Kenny McCormickEdit

Stuart and Carol McCormickEdit

Stuart (initially named Eddie) and Carol McCormick are both alcoholics raising their son Kenny, older son Kevin and youngest daughter Karen under poverty-stricken circumstances. Stuart is voiced by series co-creator Matt Stone and Carol, who was originally voiced by Mary Kay Bergman and later Eliza Schneider, is currently voiced by April Stewart.

The McCormicks are one of the poorest families in the town of South Park, living in a small, dilapidated house overrun by rats. Aside from Stuart once mentioning that he was missing work,[25] he and his wife have always been portrayed as being unemployed with little means of income; they are involved in methamphetamine production,[26] and Eric Cartman has mentioned numerous times that they are dependent on welfare.

Stuart was childhood friends with Gerald Broflovski, and the two worked together as teenagers at a pizza store. Having been unable to hold a steady job since, Stuart later felt contempt for and had a falling out with Gerald after Gerald went on to attend college and became a lawyer.[27] Early in the show's run, it was revealed that the McCormicks' house was actually a play fort Stuart and Gerald built when they were young.[27] The two later reconciled their differences, and Stuart has been portrayed as maintaining a friendship with Gerald and other adult characters on the show by hanging with them at a local bar. Stuart is also seen in later seasons getting off welfare and now employed at an Amazon fulfillment center.[28]

Kevin McCormickEdit

Kevin McCormick is the rarely seen eldest McCormick child. He has parted, messy brown hair that sticks up and has a messy face like his parents. He is 13 years old. He has only spoken on two occasions and was voiced by Trey Parker with a rough voice similar to the former characters Bill and Fosse, though with a Southern accent.

Karen McCormickEdit

Karen McCormick (voiced by Celeste Javier) is 6 years old and the youngest of the McCormick children. She first appeared briefly in "Best Friends Forever". Her first prominent role was in "The Poor Kid", in which she and her brothers are placed in foster care, and Kenny adopts his Mysterion persona in order to protect and comfort her. Mysterion is also known as her guardian angel.[18]


Kenny's unnamed grandfather appears in "Fat Camp" which has Kenny giving him a "sensual full-body massage" in front of a live audience for money. Kenny's grandfather is also mentioned in "Chickenpox", where Gerald Broflovski implies that he was an unemployed drunk much like Stuart. He also appears to have masturbation problems.

The StotchesEdit

Butters StotchEdit

Stephen and Linda StotchEdit

Stephen "Chris" Willis and Linda Stotch are Butters' parents. The couple began appearing towards the end of season 4, in correlation with their son becoming a more significant character. In his first role as a major character, Stephen was discovered to have been frequently going to a gay movie theater and a bath house to have casual sex with men.[29] This led Linda to a psychotic break and she attempted to kill Butters by driving her car into a river. Butters survives, blissfully ignorant of everything. The couple then had to concoct a story about their presumably dead son being abducted by a "Puerto Rican man", which leads to later appearances by O. J. Simpson and Patsy and John Ramsey. Claiming to Linda that he only did so out of curiosity, Stephen promises to suppress any future homosexual urges.[29]

Stephen and Linda were portrayed in another episode as having established a friendship with the parents of the show's other main child characters, joining them for book club meetings[30] and vacationing with them in Aspen.[31]

In keeping with the show's tradition of portraying adult South Park residents as irrational, Stephen constructed a mountain bunker as a proverbial "ark" to provide shelter for John McCain supporters who thought Barack Obama's victory in the 2008 presidential race would bring about chaos and the end of civilization.[32] Stephen adheres to a strict method of running his household, such as demanding that items in the kitchen pantry be alphabetized, noting that a well-organized pantry is "what keeps a family together".[33]

Linda, despite being a strict disciplinarian herself and rarely objecting to the punishments her husband imposes on their son, is usually shown to be a sympathetic mother towards her son. Serving on the city council as the town's treasurer, she is also an engineer.[34]

Stephen and Linda exhibit somewhat extreme reactions and a notable level of selfishness in their relationship with their son, often causing them to overlook or ignore Butters' attempts to communicate. In the episode "Marjorine", both are visibly distressed by Butters' (faked) death with Stephen going so far as to attempt bringing him back to life. When Butters returns home intending to expose the hoax, both parents think he is a demon spawn and chain him up in the basement. Though disgusted and afraid to approach their son, they nonetheless lure a woman to their home and kill her in order to "feed" Butters.[35] They both often seem to care for Butters, but were willing to sell him to Paris Hilton in "Stupid Spoiled Whore Video Playset". Their mixed sentiments are a likely cause of Butters' anxiety and neuroses.

Extended Stotch familyEdit

Butters has an aunt Nellie and uncle living in Los Angeles, as seen in the episode "AWESOM-O". He mentions having cousins in Florida in "Major Boobage", and an Uncle Bud who he admits sexually molested him in "The Return of Chef". He has a grandmother who suffered a stroke, the cause of which was seeing Butters on national TV with prosthetic testicles attached to his chin. A grandmother also appears in the episode "Butterballs" in which she visits the Stotch family and bullies Butters whenever his parents are not looking.

List of other familiesEdit

The TweaksEdit

The Tweaks are Tweek's family. Tweek's parents run a coffee shop called Tweek Bros. Coffee (a parody of Dunn Bros Coffee). It was nearly put out of business by the major coffee corporation, Harbucks. After a large feud both businesses learned to work together. The Tweaks are their own product's most devoted fans. Even their son consumes several cups of coffee a day (despite his age), causing his constant twitching and general nervousness. Despite the family's passion over coffee, it is implied their product tastes unpleasant and was originally successful simply because theirs was the only coffee store in town until Harbucks moved in. They usually have heart-to-heart talks with their son in times of concern or crisis (such as child abduction or their company going out of business), but they often oversimplify or exaggerate the problems, making Tweek's paranoia worse — generally speaking, every time Tweek has a new concern or problem his parents tend to aggravate it. Richard Tweak wears a maroon jumper with a barista name tag and dark blue trousers. He has a long pointed nose and light curly brown hair. Mrs. Tweak, whose first name has not been revealed on the show, wears a turquoise dress with a white apron, and has short, wavy brown hair.

Tweek's parents have appeared in several episodes, most notably "Gnomes" and "Child Abduction Is Not Funny". They play a major role in South Park: The Stick of Truth, it is revealed they send their son to pick up a meth delivery daily, and it is an essential ingredient in their coffee. They put Meth in Tweek's coffee with the claim that it will calm him down, but it's far more likely to be the direct cause of his paranoia and shakes, but from observing their own calm, focused natures don't seem to use it themselves. Mr. Tweak is voiced by Trey Parker and Mrs. Tweak has been voiced by Mary Kay Bergman and Eliza Schneider, but did not speak again for over ten years until "Informative Murder Porn", when she joined the men of the town and Linda Stotch to get their crime dramas back by playing MineCraft.

The BlacksEdit

The Blacks are Tolkien's family. They are, as their son's name references, the "token" black family on the show, and Tolkien Black is the "token black kid" at school. As well as being the only African-American family in South Park, they are also the town's richest family. In "Here Comes the Neighborhood", it is revealed that Tolkien's mother is a chemist (although Randy Marsh is considered the only scientist[36] in South Park, despite the presence of other scientists in later episodes), and his father Steve is a lawyer. They are sometimes called Bob and Linda from an ambiguous exchange in "Proper Condom Use", but Tolkien's father is referred to as Steve in "The Return of the Fellowship of the Ring to the Two Towers".

Cartman always makes fun of Tolkien for being black, frequently employing racist stereotypes. Tolkien's last name in the series was originally "Williams". The name "Black" is given, because he is one of the only black children in South Park. Part of the humor of Tolkien's character is that despite mostly subverting the characteristics of the traditional token black character, he sometimes unwillingly fulfills it, such as finding out he instinctively knows how to play bass guitar, which Cartman insisted all black people know, or an uncontrollable desire to pay to see Tyler Perry perform comedy.

The DonovansEdit

Clyde's family are the Donovans, though they were also referred to as the "Harris" family in one episode. Clyde's father, Roger, has been stated in "Terrance and Phillip: Behind the Blow" to be a geologist, though the episode "The List", states that Clyde's father owns a shoe store at the mall. Clyde's mother, Betsy (originally Martha) is of Dutch ancestry. Both characters come to the foreground in "Reverse Cowgirl", when Betsy berates Clyde for leaving the toilet seat up. His repeated inattention to this detail eventually leads to her death when she falls in and has her organs sucked out by the toilet. A sister is mentioned in the same episode but has not been seen. Roger has continued to appear since his wife's death. Betsy Donovan was voiced by April Stewart until her final appearance, where she was voiced by Trey Parker.

The family was accidentally referred to as the "Harrises" in "Lice Capades", however, this was changed back to Donovan in the later re-airings of the episode.

The TestaburgersEdit

Wendy's family are the Testaburgers. The Testaburgers seem fairly well-off and functional, although it appears they don't pay much attention to their daughter or listen to her. They do intercede when she seems to be behaving badly. Wendy's mother tries to prevent her daughter from getting breast implants in "Bebe's Boobs Destroy Society", while Wendy's father is indignant when she wants to dress like a whore in "Stupid Spoiled Whore Video Playset", although he was eventually convinced to allow it by the store's whorish clientele. They also refused to listen to her excuses for beating up Cartman in "Breast Cancer Show Ever", and forced her to promise it wouldn't happen again. In the episode "Night of the Living Homeless", it is revealed that Mrs. Testaburger is the city planner and she defends the homeless from the other council people.

The StevensesEdit

Bebe's family are the Stevenses. From what has been shown of them, they are very stereotypical. The mother, Mrs. Stevens, appears in "Bebe's Boobs Destroy Society", where it is implied that she is dumb and managed to get by relying on her looks. In that episode, Bebe is smarter and more thoughtful than her mother, though she seems more interested in make-up and boys than Wendy. Bebe's father is briefly seen in "Stupid Spoiled Whore Video Playset".

The TuckersEdit

The Tuckers are Craig's family. The family consists of Craig, his insanely tall, portly, redheaded father, Thomas Tucker, who is balding with an orange semi-mohawk, his mother, Laura Tucker, and his younger sister Tricia Tucker. Little is known of them except that flipping one another the middle finger appears to be the family norm. Craig's family's tendency for flipping each other off has been heavily ingrained into Craig, who for the first several seasons is implied to have been sent to either the principal's or counselor's office on a daily basis because of the habit, which has largely faded out of view since the sixth season. In the episode "Pandemic", they got into a heated argument with the Broflovskis and Marshes when their son disappeared.

All members of the Tucker family were first seen in the episode "Tweek vs. Craig", and were not seen again in their entirety until the "Pandemic" episodes (Craig's sister only appeared in a photograph), but Mr. and Mrs. Tucker have made short cameos throughout the series. The Tucker family is featured prominently in the episode "The Magic Bush" as Laura's unshaved pubic hair is recorded by drone planes and becomes a viral video.

The BurchesEdit

Timmy's parents are named Richard Burch and Helen Burch, and apparently suffer from the same form of intellectual disability as Timmy himself. When they are interviewed on television in "Timmy 2000", all they can say are their own names, just as Timmy does.

The ValmersEdit

Formerly named Swanson (and often misspelled Vulmer), this is Jimmy's family. His father, Ryan Valmer, dresses much like Stephen Stotch, and apparently likes coffee and sexual-exchange talk. At the beginning of the episode "Night of the Living Homeless", Mr. Valmer displays the title "Chief of Fire Department". It is unknown if being the Fire Chief is his actual job or if he volunteers for the fire department in his spare time. Very little is known about his mother, Sarah Valmer, but she appears to be very emotional and caring towards him. Jimmy's parents also say (in the episode "Krazy Kripples") that the reason Jimmy was born with a handicap was that God was punishing them for having made fun of handicapped people in high school.
