    Don't confuse CGI with "made on computers". In CGI, everything, including the backgrounds, is rendered as a set of digital objects. This is not how The Simpsons or Family Guy are animated; they are "hand drawn", but the drawings are now done directly on computers rather than on acetate cels. (Also, most of the vehicles on Family Guy are 3D models; this makes it much easier to move and rotate them.)

    I doubt that South Park is CGI, especially as it still takes quite a bit of time to create the CGI images themselves (it still takes years to make a CGI movie) and the show has a quick turnaround time in order to get current event references into the show.

    FYI,

    The last two episodes of 'Beware the Batman' (#12 and #13) are out on usenet. They are Bluray rips.

    No telling when/if they will air on Cartoon Network.

    I thought that they already aired them as part of Adult Swim?

    I'm not sure what the "final 7" are since CN only aired 11 out of 24 episodes before pulling the show back in October of last year.

    They've been airing the remainder of the episodes as part of AS since July of this year. They just aired episode 19 last week. SP needs to be set to record repeats to get it.

    11 out 26 episodes.

    If they are going to air episodes 20-26, that would be the final 7.

    Although those episodes have been available on iTunes, Amazon, Google Play, and other sources for weeks now.

    The second part of Season 2 comes out on Blu-Ray and DVD on September 30.

    I didn't know it was on Adult Swim. They just announced the final 7 episode thing and I thought some here would be interested.

    So I guess that means they have guide data showing they already aired? Looks like I only watched 4 of them, I think I have a few more still recorded.

    I only see *one* scheduled for *Sunday* at 2:30 AM.

    Me too, but it was only announced yesterday so I was going to see if the guide data catches up before then.

    CGI is actually what allows them to have such a quick turnaround time. It played a big role in getting them down to making an episode in one week rather than a few.

    Having all the characters as models allows them to be animated simply by moving the models on the computer rather than drawing them by hand or animating physical cardboard cutouts, which is what they were originally doing.
