You mean Cartman Finds Love aka Cartman Finds an OTP
He even has fanart for them
wow a fucking basketball really Cartman REALLY
that’s almost as bad as the grape soda. Also I wonder if he drew this himself. I mean he’s in the picture too. Unless he commissioned someone to draw this for him and also told them to put him in it lol
But this was a strange episode, but really interesting. The last thing I ever expected to happen was Cartman to get mushy and shippy. Like I know he’s being racist, but he’s not looking at them in a condescending manner. He legit thinks they’re adorable together. He fucking tears up over them.
The episode is called “Cartman Finds Love,” and that might seem like a misnomer at first, but this really is about Cartman finding love. Like discovering the happiness of love, and all the mess of feelings that come with it. It’s not his own relationship. But as we all know, you don’t need to be directly in a relationship to feel its love.
But the fact that Cartman’s getting feels for a relationship is still so weird! It’s messing with my head. Like he’s usually so lacking in empathy… I don’t know but it’s amazing and adorable. Cartman really surprised me with this one. He finds love and feels it so hard he fucking personifies it.
Cupid-Me is treated as the personification of love here. Even though Cartman doesn’t directly call it ‘love,’ it’s pretty obvious that this is the personification. The first moment Cartman brings Nicole and Token together and tears up, Cupid Me appears, signifying Cartman starting to believe in love.
Then when Token and Nicole break up he grabs Cupid-Me and shouts “I should have never believed in you!” before ‘murdering’ him. After the personification of love is dead Cartman goes into a cliched state of depression. With a good excuse to eat a tub of ice cream.
And yeah I don’t need to mention that Cartman’s wearing the blanket Kyle gave him but I’m gonna mention it anyway. But let’s get back to the Cupid-Me stuff. It’s obvious at this point that Cartman’s very invested in their relationship and is also in love with love itself. It’s probably his first legit experience of feeling something like it, aside from the fleeting moments of happiness when Wendy kissed him.
It’s interesting to note that once he gets inspired to get them back together, he quickly consults Cupid-Me, apologizing and asking him to come back to him.
"Love is the bestest feeling in the world. I believe you can change everything." ;u;
Cartman’s finding of love is my favorite thing about all of this. Not only that, what he does in this episode is surprisingly mature for Cartman. Even though he was depressed and handled his pain like a child at first, in the end instead of drowning out his sorrows, he goes to fix the problem. He solved an emotional problem he had. Properly.
"Sometimes love is hard, but you can’t just run away from it. When you start to have something special you have to work at it."
He’s always been the one to try to drown out emotional problems with materialism instead of solving them. But instead of doing that, he takes the initiative to patch things up between Token and Nicole. Just so they’re together.
He fucking. He fucking puts himself on the spot for their relationship. He ‘confessed’ to Kyle so that it wouldn’t ruin the integrity of his speech. If he were talking directly to Token and Nicole it would seem fishy and they wouldn’t take it as seriously. He was using his ‘relationship’ with Kyle to not only keep Kyle from getting with Nicole, but also so that he would seem genuine and those two wouldn’t brush off his words.
It could’ve also been that he was feeling his own feelings for Kyle spewing out while he was still feeling all lovey dovey for Nicole and Token, but either way he was primarily doing it as a diversion for them. And for him to be all openly mushy is strange. He has a reputation of being tough that he consciously keeps up. But he disregards his reputation and is all mushy so that Token and Nicole can be together.
This also happens to be the safest love confession I’ve ever seen, since Kyle only sees it as plotting something.
But the highlight of this episode to me was that Cartman was genuinely in love. It still baffles me, but in a good way. He genuinely felt mushy feelings for others, and he did something mature. This. This means a lot to me.
Also just watching Kyle react to being put on screen and then the heart effects showing up was just the best
Confused/Angry Kyle makes me happy
