's red-hooded Kenny has been dead for weeks — and the show's die-hard fans apparently don't care. Kenny — whose death in every episode is among the show's many running gags — died at the end of last season of a terminal muscular disease. However, when South Park
's new season kicked off last month, Kenny was M.I.A. Turns out, series creator Matt Stone
decided he was tired of bringing the hapless little guy back to life. "I think a lot of people probably haven't noticed," Stone says. "I couldn't care less. I am so sick of that character."
