Fans of the potty-mouthed animated series South Park can find the “classic” pilot episode on the Web for a limited, 30-day period. The Web version of this “rarely-seen, original hand-made” pilot episode includes four minutes of additional footage that never made it to air when it was first shown in 1997.
