South Park: “Coon 2: Hindsight”

This season 14 episode of South Park finds Cartman’s alter-ego, “The Coon,” going all-out Alex with his vicious beating of “Mosquito” and “Mint Berry Crunch” in order to regain control of his band of crime-fighters. And just to make the parody crystal-clear, writer/director Trey Parker scores the sequence with an excerpt from the overture of “The Thieving Magpie” by Gioacchino Rossini — which Kubrick uses in Orange when Alex reclaims control of the droogs. (The entire South Park episode is here.)
