Cartman is a truly awful person, which is why it's so funny to see him get what he deserves. For this list, we’ll be looking at moments where “South Park”’s most infamous character, Eric Cartman, got a taste of his own medicine. Our countdown includes Cesar Milan's methods of teaching him to behave, Scott Tenorman's revenge, when Butters showed everyone a tape of his Britney Spears impression, and more! What do you think Cartman deserves after everything he’s done? Let us know in the comments.

#10: Can’t Go to His Favorite Restaurant

"Casa Bonita"

It’s the greatest restaurant in the world as far as Cartman is concerned. Yet, when Kyle opts to take his friends there for his birthday, Cartman is left out in the cold. Kyle makes it clear to him that given how badly Eric has treated him over the years, he has no interest in bringing him. There’s a certain amount of satisfaction in seeing Kyle finally have a moment to put one over on Cartman. Given the fact that he hides Butters in a bomb shelter so he can take his place, we’re glad Kyle stood his ground. We’re also glad that Cartman got a week in juvie, even if he didn’t learn his lesson.

#9: Annoys Himself

"Go God Go XII"

You know it has to be bad if you annoy even yourself. Too impatient to wait for the Nintendo Wii, Cartman freezes himself and wakes up 540 years in the future. After having to deal with a conflict between futuristic humans and sea otters, he wants nothing more than to undo his entire trip. He manages to call himself in the past in an attempt to stop himself from being frozen. The joke’s on him: his past self doesn’t believe him and hangs up. It’s made even better when Cartman finally does return to the past, except it’s two months earlier than when he left. We’d like to think he learned to be more patient, but come on, it’s Cartman!

#8: Cartman’s Britney Impression

"Awesom-O"

We’ve done lists before on how badly poor Butters has been treated in this town. But no one has been worse to the Stotch kid than Cartman. This time around, he puts on a robot costume and pretends to be Butters’ new “robot friend” hoping to learn something embarrassing he can tease him about later. It all backfires when Eric finds out Butters has a videotape of him singing like Britney Spears. Stotch learns the truth about his robot, and everyone sees the tape. It’s not very often that the boys in town get real revenge on Cartman for his antics, so this is a sheer delight.

#7: Kyle vs. Cartman

"It’s Christmas in Canada"

Yet another entry on this list related to Kyle. These two have certainly had their share of arguments, but punches were actually thrown this time. Well, correction: one punch is thrown. Through a series of misadventures, Stan, Cartman, Kyle, and Ike end up in Canada on Christmas morning. Mad for missing out on his holiday gifts, Cartman wants to fight. After a couple of empty threats, Kyle lightly hits him and Cartman bawls like a baby. It’s nowhere near as bad as other fights Cartman has lost, but it certainly was well deserved.

#6: Well-Behaved

"Tsst"

He spit in a caretaker's mouth and drove another nanny so insane she had to be committed to a mental institution. How is Cartman’s mom ever going to get him under control? The answer: treat him like a dog. Famed dog trainer Cesar Millan manages to turn Cartman into a respectable, decent kid by using the same methods he uses on bad behaved canines. Although it doesn’t last, thanks to Cartman’s mom, it’s both satisfying and disturbing to see Eric as such a well-adjusted kid. Is it weird that we prefer him being the sociopath he is?

#5: Loses in the Special Olympics

"Up the Down Steroid"

Timmy and Jimmy are going all in for the Special Olympics. While Jimmy faces his own demons about competing, Cartman is convinced he can pretend to be handicapped, just so he can enter and win the cash prize. It’s an incredibly offensive idea, but coming from Eric, it’s more status quo than anything. Expecting to be a sure thing, Cartman never considers that even for this competition, you actually do need to have talent. Eric loses in every event simply because he’s out of shape and was never prepared to tackle a competition like this. It’s his sheer ignorance of all things that keeps the $1,000 prize away from him. Maybe next time try training for it, Eric!

#4: God Gets Revenge

"HumancentiPad"

You know you’ve done something horribly wrong when God decides to strike you down with a bolt of lightning. After spending much of this episode accusing his mother of inappropriate behavior, Cartman takes his anger out on God. Yelling at the sky in front of a Best Buy, every viewer watching is just hoping something will happen to give this kid a taste of his own medicine. So, when the shot does come down, and Eric ends up in the hospital, audiences are left smiling knowing justice was served and Cartman’s paying a price for being so rude.

#3: Ignored

"The Death of Eric Cartman"

Seriously, who eats all the skin off the KFC chicken your friend’s mom bought for all of you? As revenge, all the boys, save for Butters, decide to completely ignore him. Given that he now thinks he’s dead, we wonder if this is where the term “ghosting” came from. All jokes aside, this entry is unique in that it’s a perfect form of punishment for a kid who’s overly selfish. Cartman’s the kid who always wants the attention and goes to extreme lengths to get it. It’s incredibly satisfying to watch him jump through all these hoops in the hopes of being redeemed.

#2: Tenorman's Revenge

"201"

When Cartman fed Scott Tenorman his parents in Season 5, we learned how truly dark and disturbing Eric is. Everything that happened later was built upon the idea that this is a kid who will stop at nothing to get revenge. However, it looks like it may have run in the family. In Season 14, we learn Scott was actually Cartman’s half-brother and in taking his rage out on him, Eric inadvertently offed his own dad. We love how the show found a way to take Cartman’s darkest moment and turn it on him. This may not be our number one entry, but it’s certainly the most psychological comeuppance he’s seen.

#1: Wendy vs. Cartman

"Breast Cancer Show Ever"

She may have been Stan’s girlfriend, but that certainly never stopped Cartman from taking every opportunity to mock her. So it comes as a bit of a surprise how freaked out he gets when Wendy finally challenges him to a fight after school. It’s clear from Eric’s desperate efforts to get out of it that he knows it’s not going to end well. Cartman’s done a lot of terrible things by this point in the show, so it’s both the school kids and viewers who want to see him finally get punished. Wendy delivers punch after punch until he finally goes down. It certainly isn’t elegant or civilized, but for this oversized meanie, it’s exactly what he deserved.
