We’ve seen The Simpsons and Robot Chicken team up for a couch gag once before, but never to take aim at South Park, or the California Raisins for that matter. And yet, both end up facing Homer’s wrath in a new couch gag from Sunday’s latest, featuring Robot Chicken co-creator Seth Green.

Whether or not the South Park brand of satire had lost any steam in Season 20, the most recent run of episodes hit a (figurative) wall when the 2016 Election swung against the result they’d written for. Creators Matt Stone and Trey Parker have a few months to re-energize, but now hint they’ll skew less topical in Season 21, saying “what was actually happening was way funnier than anything we could come up with.”

South Park creators Matt Stone and Trey Parker had some understandable frustration with reworking Wednesday’s “The Very First Gentleman” into “Oh, Jeez” after the election; so much so, that they made history of their own in the process.

South Park may have been confident enough in its election predictions for 2008 and 2012 to use their quick turnaround on Wednesday’s episodes, but 2016 may be their biggest challenge yet.

The quick turnaround of South Park episodes famously enabled Matt Stone and Trey Parker to address the 2008 election “About Last Night … ,” as well in 2012 basing an episode off Obama’s re-election. Seasons 19 and 20 have gone even deeper into the political process, though the first promo for “The Very First Gentleman” seems to predict the race has come to an end.

Perhaps the only South Park trivia cited so often as its six-day turnaround might be the one time creators exceeded it, owing to a power outage at South Park Studios. As it turns out, last week’s 20th anniversary premiere very nearly added another footnote to the record, as malfunctioning audio delayed “Member Berries” right up to an hour before showtime.
