South Park: Why is Ike Broflovski a Canadian?

Question by Guest | 2013-04-15 at 19:13

In the sitcom South Park, Ike, son of the family Broflovski, is illustrated in a way in which otherwise in South Park only Canadians are represented (long wide mouth over the entire face, etc). However, Kyle and the rest of the family, are not embodied as Canadians.

Is Ike originally coming from Canad, was his mother Sheila Broflovski cheating or what happened? I also could image that Ike was drawn first and then, in later episodes, it came to the representation of Canadians. But does anyone know it exactly?

Ike was adopted by family Broflovski and is actually a native Canadian. Before the adoption, his name was Peter Gints. The reason why Ike was released for adoption by his parents was the Cola Wars in Canada.

In season 7, episode 15 (It's Christmas in Canada) you can see Ike's biological parents: Harry and Elise Gints. In this episode, they want their children back.

More information about Ike's adoption, you can find in season 2, episode 4 (Ike's Wee Wee).
