Flash Animated Philosophy From South Park Creators

Trey Parker, one of the creators of South Park, was raised in Colorado, where his father attempted to teach him Buddhism. Now, years later, Parker and his animation pal Matt Stone have brought to life the teachings of Alan Watts, the comparative religion expert and philosopher. Under the FurryCarlos Productions banner, the two tapped South Park animators Chris Brion and Todd Benson to keyframe three of Watts’ recordings, which can be viewed below.

I believe two more Watts recordings were animated by this team, but there are no credits – Madness and I.

  1. Great visual tool to introduce someone to such interesting man’s ideas. I had never heard of Watts untill I was reseaching a band on WIKI and learned they sampled his voice in many outros of there songs. Then linked to Watts WIKI and read about his life and work. I can’t wait to learn more about him and especially his teachings.
