Towelie introduces the character Towelie to South Park.Towelie is a talking genetically-engineered towel made by a group called TimeCorp.Towelie also always smokes marijuana! Cartman finds Stan's mother's bloody tampon in the garbage can.She does not want to explain what it is to the boys so she gets them a new video game console instead.The boys get addicted to it and play all weekend nonstop until school.They come home afterwords and realize that there gamesphere is gone.Earlier, they meet Towelie.The army calls them and tells them to bring the towel to them.The rest of the episode involves the boys getting double crossed and going on an adventure in order to retrieve their console.This is a very entertaining and action packed episode with a few funny moments.
