The latest episode of South Park is titled “Dancing With Smurfs” and in part parodies James Cameron’s upcoming 3-D sci-fi epic Avatar. I thought this would be more biting, but it does reflect what people have been saying about those Avatar trailers. During the episode, Cartman becomes a Glenn Beck /Bill O’Reilly-like character who villifies the student body president Wendy as a socialist/commie, leaves school in disgust to live with the Smurfs, becomes “one of them,” falls in love with a Smurfette, and leads a revolt against the humans who have come to exploit Smurfland for its energy Smurfberries. Here’s the excerpt:
