"We've had three or four times when we thought, "This is it." This is the end. "'It's over,'" According to Matt Stone, who worked on the series,

It's best not to ask South Park's creators, Trey Parker and Matt Stone, if they see an end in sight for the Comedy Central show. Over the years,

they've learned the hard way that this is a minefield they should avoid. 

On Saturday, the popular cartoon sitcom about four bad-mouthed elementary school kids in a small mountain town in Colorado turns 25. Parker and Stone,

who met when they were students at the University of Colorado and created the show there, threw a two-night party at the famous Red Rocks Park and

Amphitheatre this week to mark the occasion. The party featured a number of musical acts, including Primus, who did the show's theme song from the beginning.

The event was taped and will air on Comedy Central on Saturday. This will be the show's official debut on the network it helped build, along with The Daily Show.

The concert for the 25th anniversary will then be shown on Paramount+. In an interview with People, the duo talked about why they had never felt more loved by fans than at the Red Rocks concert.

In August 2021, they signed a $900 million mega-deal with MTV Entertainment Studios for more seasons of the show and 14 made-for-TV movies.

Parker and Stone also talked about their favourite memories from the show's first 25 years and shared the most important thing they've learned about Hollywood.

How did you feel about the Red Rocks' praise? Have fans ever shown you more love in the past 25 years? Stone: I don't think so.

I will add that we live in a world where "Check out these scores." "Look how many people got it," but we rarely meet that many people in one room.

There has never been a physical manifestation of that, so being at Red Rocks with so many of our fans was pretty overwhelming.

Parker: It was pretty strange, and I don't remember much about the first night. But the first time I went out and sang the first line of "Uncle F—ker" and heard 10,000 people sing along,
