耶穌 vs. 霜雪(Jesus vs. Frosty) 编辑

1992年,科羅拉多大學的特雷·派克,馬特·斯通和學生們在“復仇的良知電影”綽號下將耶穌與弗洛斯蒂聯繫起來。 Parker和Stone使用建築用紙,膠水和一台非常老的8毫米膠片相機為這部電影製作動畫,並在1992年12月的學生電影放映中首映該片。這部電影的特點是四個孩子與南方公園的四個主角非常相似,包括一個類似卡特曼的角色,但被稱為“肯尼”,還有三個無名男孩,類似於凱爾,斯坦和肯尼。這部電影還包括一些經典的南方公園成分,包括熱鬧的故事情節,強大的語言,圖形暴力和最終的“道德”。

這個故事講述的是四個孩子如何建立一個雪人,並且以“冰雪雪人”為背景,在它上面戴上了一頂神奇的絲質帽子,使它變得生機勃勃。不幸的是,Frosty變得邪惡和瘋狂,萌芽巨大的觸角並殺死了Kenny(類似Cartman的男孩)。這導致凱爾成為第一個發表著名著“哦,我的上帝!冰霜殺了肯尼!”的線路。男孩們去聖誕老人尋求幫助,但它變成了冰霜,他殺死了類似肯尼的角色(正如我們從電視劇中認識他的角色)。剩下的兩個孩子逃跑了,然後和一個小耶穌一起找到了一個耶穌誕生場景,耶穌飛到了邪惡的雪人身邊,用他的光環切割了魔法帽子,將其殺死。看到這些後,其中一個男孩說另一條已知的路線:“你知道,我今天學到了一些東西。”這兩個孩子意識到聖誕節的真正含義:禮物。所以,當一隻鹿在類似卡特曼的男孩身上啃食時,他們會回家尋找隱藏在父母身邊的禮物。

這部電影已經在南方公園劇集中被引用過,比如“辛普森一家已經做到了”,最初斯坦說“好吧,現在把它放在它上面,Tweek”,Tweek回答“但是如果穿上鼻子,雪人活過來殺死我?“斯坦說,“Tweek,除了那一次,什麼時候發生過?”在第六季的聖誕節特別節目中也提到了它:“紅色雪橇”,在這集中,四個男孩說“耶穌!”並以與斯坦和凱爾類似的男孩在短片中所做的一樣的方式左右搖晃頭部。

在SBS 2的報導中,馬特和特雷表示他們在製作視頻的過程中忘記了自己,所以沒有人真正知道究竟是誰製作了短片。當它受歡迎時,他們的一個朋友(他們並不知道他們已經做到了這一點)已經向二人展示了這一點,他說這是一件非常有趣且值得一看的事情,導致Trey Parker和Matt Stone意識到他們朋友展示的實際上是他們製作的東西。

(In 1992, Trey Parker, Matt Stone, and students at the University of Colorado, made Jesus vs. Frosty, under the "Avenging Conscience Films" moniker. Parker and Stone animated the film using only construction paper, glue, and a very old 8 mm film camera, and premiered the film at the December 1992 student film screening. The movie features four kids who are very similar of the four main characters of South Park, including a character resembling Cartman, but called "Kenny", and three nameless boys resembling Kyle, Stan, and Kenny. The film also includes some classical South Park ingredients, including a hilarious story-line, strong language, graphic violence and a 'moral' at the end.

The story is about how the four kids build a snowman and, in the vein of "Frosty the Snowman," put a magic silk hat on it to make it come to life. Unfortunately Frosty turns out to be evil and deranged, sprouting huge tentacles and kills Kenny (the Cartman-resembling boy). This leads Kyle to be the first to utter the famous line "Oh, my God! Frosty killed Kenny!". The boys go to Santa Claus for help, but it is Frosty in disguise, and he kills the character who resembles Kenny (as we know him from the TV-series). The two remaining kids run away, and then find a nativity scene with a baby Jesus, who flies to the evil snowman and kills it by slicing off the magic hat with his halo. After seeing this, one of the boys says another known line: "You know, I learned something today". The two kids realize the true meaning of Christmas: presents. So, as a deer nibbles on the Cartman-resembling boy, they go to their homes to find the presents hidden by their parents.

This film has been referenced in South Park episodes, such as "The Simpsons Already Did It", where at the very beginning Stan says "Ok, now put the nose on it, Tweek" and Tweek replies "But what if by putting on the nose, the snowman comes to life and kills me?" to which Stan says, "Tweek, when has that ever happened except for that one time?" It was also referenced in the season six Christmas special: "Red Sleigh Down", where in the middle of the episode the four boys say "Jesus!" and shake their heads side-to-side in exactly the same way that the Stan and Kyle-resembling boys did in the short film.

On an SBS 2 report ,  Matt and Trey had stated that they forgot to credit themselves in the process of making the video, so nobody really knew who exactly made the short. When it gained popularity, a friend of theirs (who had not known they had made it) had shown it to the duo, stating that is was something really funny and was worth seeing, resulting with Trey Parker and Matt Stone realizing that the thing their friend had shown was actually something they made.)

耶穌 vs.聖誕老人(Jesus vs. Santa) 编辑

1995年,福克斯廣播公司的執行長佈萊恩格拉登支付了斯通和帕克2000美元作為另一張動畫短片,作為他可以送給朋友的視頻聖誕賀卡。反過來,兩人創造了耶穌與聖誕老人。這個版本的聖誕精神的動畫風格與South Park非常相似,還有Stan,Kyle,Cartman和Kenny的更加成熟的版本(和一個看上去完全像Wendy Testaburger的女孩一樣,坐在聖誕老人的膝上) 。它在很大程度上確立了將在南方公園使用的角色。這部電影還包含了會在系列劇中重演的元素,比如凱爾是猶太人,還有老鼠吃肯尼的屍體。據報導,這部電影的預算是750美元,派克和斯通保留了其餘的佣金。製作短片在南方公園劇集“一個非常蹩腳的聖誕節”中被模仿。

這個故事在很大程度上不同於耶穌與冰霜:耶穌下降到他遇到孩子的南方公園。他要求他們帶他去當地的商場,在那裡他找到聖誕老人。原來,耶穌有一塊骨頭可以挑選“Kringle” - 根據耶穌的說法,聖誕老人用禮物減少了對耶穌生日的記憶。聖誕老人意識到了這個不和,並聲稱“這一次”,他們將“完成”。他們挺身而出(伴隨著真人快打3的聲音和音樂),並且他們把它踢出去,在這個過程中意外地殺死了各種旁觀者(包括肯尼)。耶穌釘住聖誕老人,他們都要求男孩們幫助他們。斯坦猶豫了一下,並且奇怪:“布里安波塔諾會做什麼?” (後來在南方公園播放了一首歌:更大,更長,未切)這位花樣滑冰運動員奇蹟般地出現並舉行了一場關於聖誕節應該如何與對方保持良好關係的演講。男孩們將信息傳遞給戰士,他們慚愧地同意並決定將斧頭放在橙色冰沙上。就像在耶穌與霜之間,男孩們意識到聖誕節的真正含義:禮物。凱爾說,如果你是猶太人,你會得到禮物八天!其他人也決定成為猶太人,而老鼠正在吃肯尼的屍體時,離開現場。

Graden最初於1995年12月將視頻分發給80位朋友,其中一位朋友傳聞是喬治克魯尼。 Brian Boitano最終拿到了錄音帶,顯然他的描繪讓他感到高興。經過幾個月的盜版視頻和互聯網傳播後,這部電影引起了有線網絡喜劇中心的關注。該網絡僱傭了這對樂隊開發南方公園,該公園於1997年8月13日在美國首映。

1997年,耶穌與聖誕老人獲得洛杉磯電影評論協會最佳短篇動畫獎。

雖然這個短片並沒有出現在任何一個有R級聖誕電影的福克斯視頻發布中,直到1997年南方公園首映。

(In 1995, Fox Broadcasting Company executive Brian Graden paid Stone and Parker $2000 to make another animated short as a video Christmas card he could send to friends. In turn, the duo created Jesus vs. Santa. This version of The Spirit of Christmas featured an animation style very similar to South Park, as well as more developed versions of Stan, Kyle, Cartman and Kenny (and a cameo appearance of a girl looking exactly like Wendy Testaburger, sitting on Santa's lap). It largely established the characters as they would be used in South Park. The movie also contains elements which would re-occur in the series, like Kyle being Jewish, and rats eating Kenny's corpse. The film reportedly had a budget of $750, with Parker and Stone keeping the rest of their commission. The making of the short was parodied in the South Park episode "A Very Crappy Christmas".

The story differs largely from Jesus vs. Frosty: Jesus descends to South Park where he meets the kids. He asks them to take him to the local mall, where he finds Santa. Turns out that Jesus has a bone to pick with "Kringle" - according to Jesus, Santa diminishes the memory of Jesus' birthday with his presents. Santa is aware of the feud, and claims that "this time", they will "finish it". They stand up for a fight (accompanied by sounds and music from Mortal Kombat 3), and they duke it out, accidentally killing various bystanders (including Kenny) in the process. Jesus pins Santa down, and they both ask the boys to help them. Stan hesitates, and wonders: "What Would Brian Boitano do?" (this is later parodies as a song in South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut) The figure skater miraculously appears and holds a speech about how Christmas should be about being good to each other. The boys transmit the message to the fighters, who ashamedly agree and decide to bury the hatchet over an orange smoothie. Just like in Jesus vs. Frosty, the boys realize the true meaning of Christmas: presents. Kyle remarks that if you're Jewish, you get presents for eight days! The others decide to become Jewish too and, while rats are eating Kenny's corpse, leave the scene.

Graden initially distributed the video to 80 friends in December 1995, one of the friends rumored to be George Clooney. Brian Boitano ended up getting a hold of the tape, and was apparently flattered by his depiction. After months of being passed around on bootleg video and the Internet, the film caught the attention of cable network Comedy Central. The network hired the pair to develop South Park, which premiered in the USA on August 13, 1997.

In 1997, Jesus vs. Santa received a Los Angeles Film Critics Association Award for best short animation.

Spirit of Christmas: Jesus vs. Santa is on the South Park The Hits: Volume 1 DVD.

Although this short did not appear on any Fox Video releases which has a R-rated Christmas film until the South Park premiere in 1997.)
