‘South Park’ Plans ‘Musical’ Episode

Comedy Central says the next new episode of its U.S. animated series "South Park" that airs will be called "Elementary School Musical."

The installment to air Wednesday arrives on the heels of the popular Disney movie "High School Musical 3," which is in theaters now.

"Stan realizes he could lose Wendy if he doesn't get on board with the latest fad to hit South Park Elementary. Cartman would rather kill himself than succumb," Comedy Central said in a news release announcing the episode. "But when Stan, Kyle, Kenny and Cartman all realize that Butters is now more popular than they are, they have no choice but to give in to the peer pressure."

"South Park" is in its 12th season.
