Chris and Grimes talk the unaired pilot and the program's history at Fox, using the "blurry face" to their advantage, and more.

Chris and Grimes dive into South Park's debut episode, "Cartman Gets An Anal Probe." It begins with a story about Grimes' high school popularity (it was very situational, let's be honest), while then getting into the program's history, some of the weird moments present, and a dismissive Hollywood Reporter review.
