When South Park did their High School Musical parody episode last week, I was reminded of the flat-out musical genius that was South Park: Bigger, Longer and Uncut. Trey Parker and Matt Stone aren't the huge cultural figures they were when South Park debuted 10 years ago, but they're still pumping out consistently funny episodes of their groundbreaking TV series-- and might not have left movies behind for good, either.

Though Parker says the production of Team America: World Police "killed the movie spirit" in him and Stone, they may consider returning to the feature format to end South Park once and for all. He told The Los Angeles Times, "We talked about maybe some day doing a movie to sort of end it all, and that seems like the best idea. That's been a big thought to do the last show as a movie."

But it might not necessarily be a theatrical release, Parker says, and they've had an idea for a movie before that actually got worked into the show. Plus, they have a contract for the show 2011, and haven't even decided if that's when the end point will come. But Parker promises, ""We always said, When we feel like we don't want to write the show anymore, ourselves, then it's time to end the show." At least we don't have to worry about them taking off, Aaron Sorkin-style, and leaving South Park to fall apart in their absence.

When South Park ends, it'll be a huge deal, on par with the ending of Seinfeld and Cheers for plenty of people. I can't imagine a full-length movie being unwelcome, and even people used to seeing Cartman, Kenny, Kyle and Stan in their living rooms would probably be willing to see it in theaters. Now we just need Stone and Parker to come up with three more years worth of ideas so they don't wind up using their movie plot in another episode.
