Not sure if you’re aware but Matt Stone and Trey Parker made a Troma-musical long ago called Cannibal: The Musical (aka Alferd Packer). It’s pretty great but like South Park and Baseketball, a very acquired taste — Pun intended. Lots of allusions to the film Ravenous.

Cannibal: The Musical is great and definitely an early example of their ambition and bizarre sense of humor.

I have not seen Cannibal: The Musical, although it’s been recommended to me before. I’m still just a wee bit sore Little Shop of Horrors didn’t get a single vote. WHAT GIVES, PEOPLE?! 😛

I would have voted for Little Shop of Horrors. I love that movie!

Great episode. Fun to hear rationales for why different musicals are selected. My pick would have been the Wizard of Oz. Rocky Horror Picture Show is really great though.
