Hero Overview
Well, I've certainly learned a lot. That being a gentleman doesn't mean learning to dance, or proper table manners. It means being a gentle man. Gentle to everyone.
~ Pip speaking in the South Park episode "Pip" (or "Great Expectations")

Phillip Pirrip, better known as Pip was a character in South Park. He was a British orphaned exchange student boy who was one of the boys' classmates at South Park Elementary. He was also a good friend of Butters until his death when he got crushed by Mecha-Streisand's foot in the controversial episode "201", which aired in 2010. He often appeared in the background in older South Park episodes.

He originally came from the small fictional town of Drop-A-Chair-Upon-Top-Snot in England.

He was voiced by the series' co-creator Matt Stone who also voices other characters in the series, including Kyle Broflovski and Jesus Christ.


Pip wears an old-fashioned, brown gatsby cap (nowadays known as a 'newsboy' cap), a brown bow-tie, an old-fashioned red smoking jacket, a white shirt, and blue and violet trousers. He has short light blond hair.

In earlier episodes his head is shaped subtly differently from the other children in that his jaw section is more angular than the other children's, and his body is slightly smaller. However, he is occasionally seen with a more "normal" appearance. After his titular episode, Pip was cleaned up slightly, with a fringe of hair sticking out under his cap on the top left.


Pip came from England. His biological parents are dead since he confirmed this with Mr. Garrison. It seems that later he was adopted by a family because he was seen singing Christmas carols with a mother, father and little girl.


He is generally portrayed as a cheerful, sweet, polite, child-like and laid-back character, who may be constantly knocked down, but always got right back up again. The only time he ever seemed to act against this description is in the episode "Conjoined Fetus Lady". In the episode, the main characters continually called him "French", despite the fact that he hated French people. Whenever they insulted him in this way, he would pick up the dodge ball and throw it at whoever was saying it, at times with inhuman strength and precision, including taking out an entire steroid-juiced Chinese dodgeball team with a single throw. He would usually apologize a moment later and revert to his old self. His personality is similar to that of Butters.

Pip was very friendly with all of the students at South Park Elementary, even Damien, but they didn't return his favor.
