South Park is an American adult animated sitcom created by Trey Parker and Matt Stone for the Comedy Central television network. Intended for mature audiences, the show has become infamous for its crude language and dark, surreal humor that satirizes a wide range of topics. The ongoing narrative revolves around four boys—Stan Marsh, Kyle Broflovski, Eric Cartman, and Kenny McCormick—and their bizarre adventures in and around the titular Colorado town. Much like The Simpsons, South Park utilizes a very large ensemble cast of recurring characters.
Shown in the postcard is Kyle Broflovski (sometimes spelled Broslovski, Broslofski, Brovlofski or Broflofski), the main character in the animated series. He is voiced by and loosely based on co-creator Matt Stone. Kyle is one of the show's four central characters. Kyle is a third- then fourth-grade student who commonly has extraordinary experiences not typical of conventional small-town life in his fictional hometown of South Park, Colorado. Kyle is distinctive as one of the few Jewish children on the show, and because of this, he often feels like an outsider amongst the core group of characters. His portrayal in this role is often dealt with satirically, and has elicited both praise and criticism from Jewish viewers.
According to Mr. Garrison, the 4th Grade teacher at South Park Elementary, Kyle is a "smart" and "A+" student. Also Kyle, along with the other boys, is portrayed as having multiple useful and trivial talents. However, at rare times, like most of the children, he is also portrayed as being ignorant. Kyle has extremely strong beliefs, and when forced to question them, he becomes very upset and has somewhat of a short temper
Typically, Kyle wears a greenish lime ushanka, a bright orange jacket, dark green pants, and lime-green mittens. Underneath his hat, he has red hair, much like his mom's in Spanish culture Jews such as Judas Iscariot were depicted with red hair.
