Fan Question: What’s the name of that episode with the Crab People?

Fan Question: I know it was a bunch of seasons ago… but what was that episode called with the Crab People?

Answer: Those those evil crustaceans actually made their debut 11 years ago — back in Season 7’s “South Park is Gay“. The Crab People posed as the Queer Eye guys as part of their plot to turn mankind into metrosexuals…and then take over the world!

According to Matt and Trey’s commentary on that episode, Crab People are “probably the worst idea that we’ve ever had.”
