Alan Watts, South Park Style

I’m an Alan Watts fanatic. I have listened to countless hours of his lectures, and I’ve read several of his books. There’s just something about the way the British-born philosopher in 1960s America saw the world that resonates with me at a deep level.


Apparently, I’m not the only one. South Park creators Matt Stone and Trey Parker tapped animators Chris Brion and Todd Benson to create a series of animations set to snippets of Watts’ lectures. It’s something I’ve been wanting to do for a long time, but alas, they beat me to the punch.

They’re simple, fun and serve as a great introduction to Watts’ take on the world. Enjoy.
