The quartet created a three-minute trailer for a fictional film titled Alferd Packer: The idea was based on an obsession Parker had with Alfred Packera real nineteenth-century prospector accused of cannibalism. The film was shot on Loveland Pass as winter was ending, and the crew endured the freezing weather. The Musical premiered in Boulder in October ; "they rented a limousine that circled to ferry every member of the cast and crew from the back side of the block to the red carpet at the theater's entrance.

Among these included BASEketballa comedy film that became a critical and commercial flop, and rights to produce a prequel to Dumb and Dumberwhich was never completed.
Parker and Stone signed a deal with Comedy Central in April that contracted the duo to producing South Park episodes untilgave them a slice of the lucrative spinoff merchandising the show generated within its first year, as well as an unspecified seven-figure cash bonus to bring the show to the big screen, in theaters.

He admitted that press coverage, which proclaimed the end of South Park was near, bothered him. Over time, the show has adopted a unique production process, in which an entire episode is written, animated and broadcast in one week. Though its viewership is lower than it was at the height of its popularity in its earliest seasons, South Park remains one of the highest-rated series on Comedy Central.
The franchise has also expanded to music and video games. Comedy Central released various albums, including Chef Aid: The South Park Album and Mr. David is informed that Jack was once placed in there, and one day, Governor Theodore Roosevelt David James Alexander visited, and Jack rode out of the refuge with him in the Governor's carriage. While a number of newsboys believe this, David is quick to question if it happened.
Shortly afterward, Jack and the newsboys lead another charge on the distribution center, only to find armed thugs waiting to greet them. The boys appear outnumbered, until Spot Conlon and his gang from Brooklyn arrive, fighting the thugs back, and seizing the day.
Bryan Denton is on hand, and his article and a picture of the boys brings them front-page glory on the cover of 'The New York Sun.

Denton apologizes to David, and gives him the news story that he had written about the riot. With Jack gone, David takes command, and vows to get Jack out of the 'Refuge.
They follow it to the mansion of Joseph Pulitzer. Inside, Jack meets up with Pulitzer, who promises that he can free Jack from his sentence in the 'Refuge,' and offers to pay him to work for him again. Jack balks at this, but grows worried when Pulitzer mentions that he has the power to lock the other newsboys in the 'Refuge,' including David and Les.
Upon leaving Pulitzer's house, David appears, and encourages Jack to run. The two get a ways away, before Jack reprimands David for trying to help him. Jack demands David leave, with David unaware of what Jack heard from Pulitzer. The next day, the newsboys protest outside the distribution center, but are shocked when Jack emerges dressed in good clothes and a stack of papers under his arm.
David angrily reprimands Jack for what he's doing, with Jack saying he only cares about doing this to earn enough money to finally leave for Santa Fe. One day, David, Les and their sister Sarah Ele Keats are assaulted by some thugs from the newspaper distribution center. Jack rushes in to protect his friends, and ends up sending the thugs running, promising to report the incident to their employer.
Denton further explains that there's more to the newsies strike than they think. Much of the city thrives on child labor, and word is some people are scared that the strike could spread to other parts of city-wide business.
