Who Killed Kenny: Kenny lookalike dies instead.

Body Count: Cartman's skinny double (dressed as Kenny) gets crushed by Ms. Crabtree's uterus. So does another unnamed child, who slides out at the last minute. Also, an endangered manatee is bludgeoned to death by Ms. Choksondik, so it can be dissected and properly understood.

Where Did The Idea Come From: The story about Kenny doing disgusting stunts was inspired by the popularity of programs such as Jackass and The Tom Green Show. It was also written around the same time many South Park staff members were accepting money from other South Park staff members to do disgusting things.

Factoid: Cartman mentions, "When I was in prison, we used to sneak stuff in by hiding it up our ass." This colon-smuggling happened in "Cartman's Silly Hate Crime", where he snuck in a variety of goods, including Disneyland. There's a scene featuring college students at the University of Colorado in this episode. Both Stone and Parker went to college there.
