Especially because Ike is supposed to be 2 years old.
Actually only Kyle found out he was circumcised (they mention that Ike's brother had a bris when Kyle was present)... the other boys planned bris's at the end of the show... I don't know why they would plan a bris if they had already been circumcised, but it was a weird episode all around... the other boys aren't even Jewish so why would they plan a bris even if they were intact I love the parts making fun of the DARE program though

I've watched this one recently 'cause it's one that we have on the computer Here's a transcript of the episode:

Thanks - I'm glad to be mistaken about that one. The whole circ thing on a 2 yr old was creeped out though!

I read the bris scene and it went one, two, three snip : No crying no blood that hardly seems reallistic.

Yeah and the mohel says "we're just gonna snip it to make it look bigger"! Sounds like the South Park guys seriously have their heads up their you know whats! Too bad, usually they take a common sense view (some might disagree with me lol!).

And when the South Park movie came out, in the end of the TV-trailer - Bigger, Longer & Uncut -you could hear the boys saying eeeeeeeeeeeeeewwwwwwwwwww after the word uncut.

How sad.

The same spot was on TV here too and ofcourse no one undertood what the eeeeeeeeewwww was about.

That episode is definitely not realistic (WRT circumcision) or intactivist in any way, shape, or form. I usually really like South Park and agree that they generally take a common-sense view (and as I mentioned, we mainly got this episode because it makes fun of DARE and the highly ineffective and propagandist way they teach children about drugs - it just happened to be the circumcision episode also), but I have a HUGE problem with their handling of the topic of circumcision :

love and peace.

Just saw it on DVD

during the skateboard scene FFN of Bart and you can't see the glans so it looks like he is intact.

Yes! I agree . I've been meaning to post that for the longest time. Another clue that Bart is intact is if you listen to the commentary the people working on The Simpsons Movie admitted they never thought they'd get Bart fully nude past the American censors. They were expecting him to show nude outside the US (I think they specifically said Europe).

Pretty cool .

So Bart is an intact American (cartoon) Boy and has been for 20+ years.
What are the implications?

There was another circumcision mention in the Simpsons. It was in the episode where prohibition of alcohol came to Springfield and Homer ended up secretely bowling balls full of beer into Moe's Tavern.

At the very end of the episode, Mayor Quimby is reading the town charter and there's a line in there "control circumcision." In a different episode, one of the bullies claims to be Jewish, by putting on various Jewish clothing, but I have a feeling that most Springfieldians (especially the kids) are intact.
