Fair warning: this list is going to get pretty ludicrous. Welcome to WatchMojo.com and today we’re counting down our picks for the Top 10 Randy Marsh Moments from “South Park.”


For this list, we’re looking at the funniest and most character-defining moments from our favourite “South Park” dad.



#10: You’ll Freeze to Death! “Two Days Before the Day After Tomorrow”


With all of Randy’s wackiness, it’s easy to forget that he’s actually a geologist. After Stan and Cartman destroy a nearby dam, causing a flood, it’s revealed that a global warming catastrophe will happen two days before the day after tomorrow. If only people had listened! The town begins to panic that the weather outside the community center has reached an unreal low, but Randy bravely heads out into the… “dangerous” terrain along with Gerald and Stephen. Naturally, he’s bundled in layers in the perfectly average weather, believing himself to be feeling hot due to hypothermia. When Randy gets the other moronic adults on his side, it’s always a recipe for a great episode.





#9: Blockbuster “A Nightmare on Face Time”


Ever the ambitious idiot, Randy decides to buy a Blockbuster just as streaming services are rising to prominence. Though he is ridiculed by his family and the ghosts that haunt the Blockbuster, he remains adamant about running the store. It’s a hilarious descent into madness, imitating scenes from “The Shining” to absurd perfection. Eventually, he’s terrorizing a Halloween party via an iPad on Face Time and babbling nonsensically in the snow. By the end, he’s been frozen outside the video rental store a la Jack Torrance, but at least he got some Chicken McNuggets out of it.




#8: Ancestry.Con “Holiday Special”


Randy’s attempt to get Christopher Columbus’ name removed from as many things as possible hits a snag when people discover he used to be “really into Columbus.” To counter this, he does what any rational person would do, and makes out with a Native American man before swabbing his mouth for DNA to discover his “ancestry.” Unfortunately for him, the man becomes infatuated with him as he tries to hide his secret, ultimately failing, while learning that he is 2.8% Neanderthal. Are we sure it isn’t 100%?




#7: Wall-Mart “Something Wall-Mart This Way Comes”



The town of South Park is overjoyed when a “Wall-Mart” comes to town with its low-priced goods, but no one is more excited than Randy. It haunts his dreams until he visits the store at night; and there’s nothing more priceless than Randy calling to Stan to show him his new glitter stickers. They were only 99 cents! And when it seems like the crushingly monopolizing store is taking over, he becomes even further entrapped as he starts working at the Wall-Mart. Though he tries to be a hero and ultimately helps the boys defeat it, he’s once again distracted by the insanely low prices.




#6: So Startled “Pandemic” & “Pandemic 2: The Startling”


When Randy gets a video camera, he becomes a little overzealous. Okay, he gets a lot overzealous. Though at first he’s just recording everything that happens in the house, he takes it to Randy levels of ridiculous when he refuses to put the camera down during a giant guinea pig attack. In a parody of “Cloverfield,” he documents the event, repeatedly declaring how startled he is, with an iconic line. His antics are once again the highlight of the two-part episode, and it just goes to show that allowing Randy to be his obnoxious self is always a recipe for great comedy.



#5: Musical Maestro “Broadway Bro Down”



Inspired by Matt Stone and Trey Parker’s own work on Broadway, this episode follows Randy as he writes a musical, after apparently discovering that these productions can make some women become, well, physically amorous. However, some of Broadway’s biggest composers (like “Stephen Sondheim,” take issue with his lack of subtlety. As a result, they bro down and then bro out with Randy, and finally settle on an ethos of respect for all. But the climax comes when he clumsily crashes a performance of “Wicked” as Spider-Man, resulting in some hysterical destruction. Randy’s musical, the name of which we can’t repeat here, is truly the stuff that Tonys were made for.





#4: The Obama Party “About Last Night…”



When Obama won the 2008 election against John McCain, Randy was pretty stoked. So much so, in fact, that he leads a raucous party of ecstatic Obama supporters through the streets of South Park, putting an Obama spin on songs such as “Celebration,” “Mandy,” “Hey Mickey,” and even “Who Let the Dogs Out?” As the night wears on, he grows more and more drunkenly belligerent, believing his actions no longer have consequences, thanks to the election. He parties himself directly into the hospital and out of a job, at which point he disavows his beloved president-elect. It’s Randy at his most excessive, and we wouldn’t have him any other way.





#3: Poop Dreams “More Crap”



What would a “South Park” list be without an entry about poop? Randy couldn’t be prouder of his enormous crap, calling the European Fecal Standards and Measurements office to confirm that it is indeed the world’s biggest. Unfortunately for him, Bono immediately steals his thunder with an even bigger crap; but Randy persists. With a diet of P.F. Chang’s, he manages to curate a crap even bigger than the original record - which, as it turns out, was Bono himself. It’s the show at its best and grossest, managing to self-deprecate while churning out plenty of laughs. What more could you expect from an Emmy-winning series?





#2: I Thought This Was America! “The Losing Edge”




With Stan’s Little League team reluctantly dominates baseball season, Randy’s storyline parodies sports films by working his way up the “fighting dad” circuit. At every game, he starts a fight with a father from the opposing team, and is promptly arrested, even though . . . this is America! Despite feeling discouraged about fighting the Bat Dad at the state championship, Sharon inadvertently inspires him to continue. He has the fight of his life with the Bat Dad, unintentionally saving the day by getting the game thrown and keeping the kids from playing any more games. Once again, his stupidity saves the day.






Before we unveil our top pick, here are a few honourable mentions:



The Importance of Voting

“Douche and Turd”






Randy in Azeroth

“Make Love, Not Warcraft”






Randy Invents Sarcastaball

“Sarcastaball”





#1: (Ya Ya Ya) I Am Lorde “The Cissy”






A season eighteen episode revealed that Randy has been living a double life as both Randy Marsh and pop star Lorde. It all started when he wanted to use the women’s bathroom, but became a superstar in the process. As the secret begins to come out, he writes the catchy song “Push,” about pushing through adversity and maybe about pushing… something else. The gag runs throughout the eighteenth season, with Sia making a guest appearance as the edited voice of Lorde. The real-life Lorde herself even praised the portrayal and the episode’s themes of transgender acceptance. It’s absurd, hilarious, and everything we’ve come to expect from Randy Marsh.
