An obvious nod to a well-known group of conspiracy theorists, the show's creators satirize the lunatic real-life outfit as Lil' Qties, with the new South Park special seeing the militant faction of anti-vaxxers try and establish themselves in the community. Their ultimate aim? To prevent the gang's unhinged teacher, Mr Mackey, from procuring the Covid vaccines he so desperately craves.

Under instruction from the crazed South Park Elementary School counselor, the potty-mouthed pupils try frantically to get their hands on as many 'rona vacination doses as possible - setting up a war with the Lil' Qties that sees the morals of lil' Eric Cartman tested to the max...Because if you'd been probed by aliens in a decidedly non-intelligent way, you'd probably compromise a few values for a $2,000 bounty as well?

Elsewhere in the quaint Colorado town of South Park, Stephen Stotch continues his well-meaning but irritating attempts to enforce social distancing and proper mask-wearing from behind his living room window. It's falling on deaf ears when it comes to his son, Butters, who's determination to believe in anything that's a convenient reason to get out of the house means he's fallen in with a bad crowd.

The new South Park special is the hotly anticipated follow-up to September's pandemic episode, which delivered the Comedy Central-hosted show's top TV ratings since way back in the early-Noughties.
