The show was born when two University of Colorado animation students were commissioned to send a holiday postcard to VIPs in Hollywood. That postcard turned out to be Spirit of Christmas, which grabbed the attention of Comedy Central executives who were looking to make an animated comedy series. South Park launched on August 13, 1997. Matt Stone and Trey Parker, the co-creators of South Park, not only provide the voices for the show but also write and record the music. On November 29, 2014, Comedy Central Records and South Park released a limited edition 7-inch vinyl picture disc in honor of Record Store Day Black Friday. The release, limited to 2,500 copies, features the songs “James Cameron” from the Emmy-winning episode “Raising the Bar” and “My B***h Ain’t No Hobbit” from the episode “The Hobbit.” In honor of Record Store Day, April 20, 2013, they released a limited edition 7-inch vinyl picture disc featuring “San Diego” from season 16’s “Butterballs” episode and the previously unreleased track “Gay Fish” from Season 13’s “Fishsticks” episode. The voices on the show are mainly Matt Stone and Trey Parker, the co-creators of the show. While there have been plenty of celebrities drawn into the cartoon, very rarely does the real celebrity provide their own voice. Discerning whose voice is which character is sometimes tricky.
