Storyline

Kyle is on a pace to win the annual South Park spelling bee, but ends up being beaten by a pair of home-schooled children, Mark and Rebecca. After the competition, Mark decides he wants to go to a regular school like the other kids, while Kyle finds himself smitten with Rebecca. Cartman, meanwhile, decides he wants to try homeschooling, which to him means lying in bed all day watching television. Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

Hilarious!

Hooked On Monkey Phonics is a hilarious South Park episode! It's another example of kids being kids.This show actually has one of the most realistic portrayals of kids I have ever seen.The boys meet two home-schooled kids at a spelling bee, they are extremely smart and seem to know the answers to all the hard spelling questions.Kyle is smitten by the girl, Rebecca.The home-schooled boy now wants to socialize with the other kids and asks his father to put him in public school.His father reluctantly agrees.The boy however, gets ridiculed and beaten up because he has not socialized before and acts fairly weird.Meanwhile, Kyle kisses Rebecca.This however turns her into a total slut(fairly true to life I might add).Meanwhile, Cartman decides to be home schooled.This is a very funny south park episode!
