So, this was just something I've been working on, mostly out of curiosity. Basically, it's the characters ranked by how many episodes they speak in. I only did characters with 10+ speaking roles (so currently no Satan, Saddam, Towelie, Kevin Stoley, Santa, Mr. Hankey, Richard Tweak, etc. yet). Tell me if you think I screwed up somewhere, and thanks for reading this colossal waste of my time. :)

Special thanks to Big-Will. http://www.southparkwillie.com/ helps a lot for double checking if a character appeared in an episode.

What a cool idea! :) No surprise Cartman has the most. But cool to note Stan's tied with him. And characters like T&P I'm surprised don't have more. Are you counting episodes in which the boys are watching them on TV? Because it seems like more than 20. Hm. And cool to know Sharon's spoken in 81 episodes, more than I thought she did.

Ya, cool thing to keep track of. I have other lists I'd like to conduct but am too lazy to do it. Maybe someday lol.
I love: Stan, Butters, Cartman, Sharon.

I ship: Stan/Cartman <3

Stan: MMOOMM!!
Sharon: What is it honey? (gasp!) My baby's killed again!
Haa, I love that line.

Thanks. :) I did count them on TV, but if they just fart and don't actually say anything or laugh (as is the case in The New Terrance and Phillip Movie Trailer and maybe a few others) I didn't count it.

And I just realized I forgot about Ms. Choksondik and Ms. Crabtree. :o

I can't imagine the amount of time it took to do this, but I find it really interesting just because the results are not what anyone would guess.

Great job Mr. Yates-balls. If I was SP, I'd include this on a DVD season as an extra "trivia" thing. But I'm not SP and I don't think the powers that be will recognize the interest this list could be to a lot of fans.

I'm kinda surprized that Butters and Kenny are almost tied fighting it out for the 4th & 5th positions. I never realized Butters had been a main kid for that long and never thought Kenny had missed that much time being dead.

It's not that Kenny missed much being dead. It's because he rearly speaks. He became just a bystander.

Subtracted 1 from Pip because I counted the unaired pilot when I shouldn't have.

Some stuff I'm not too sure on:
-I counted Token's lines in Tweek vs. Craig and Hooked on Monkey Fonics, however I didn't count "prototypes" or look-alikes for other characters (e.g. Butters in Clubhouses, the Stephen-like protester in Quintuplets 2000, etc.). I'm not sure if that should be considered a "proto-Token" (since he's not properly established until season 4) and thus take away 2 appearances.
-Whether I should count the movie or not.

Thoughts?

Yeah, pretty much. Butters has spoken in like 90% of episodes starting in season 4, whereas Kenny only spoke in about half the episodes in seasons 8 through 13. All season 6 really did was make up for season 1.

Any chance you could update this for the new season?

Really late reply but I did eventually update the OP for S17 after Stick of Truth came out. S18's finale left a pretty bad taste in my mouth and I sort of lost interest in South Park for a while, but I'm really loving the current season so I've gone back and updated my personal document up to Sponsored Content. However, the way I have things set up is annoying to update, so I'm going to wait until the finale to change it along with possibly the format.

Some major milestones happened these past 2 seasons: First season in which Liane didn't have a speaking role, several characters speaking for their first time in years, Randy is behind Garrison by only 1, Butters has tied with Kenny, and Stan is ahead of Cartman for the first time ever!

This is pretty cool. Reminds me of when I compiled lists of character icons from here twice -- this is a lot more useful though!

Any characters jump past ten appearances in the last two years?
