Animation has changed significantly since the days when Bugs Bunny and Mickey Mouse ruled the airwaves. Adult animation is incredibly popular, and nobody does it better than South Park. If you want to collect the characters, there are a number of options available, including the best South Park Funko Pops.
While Funko has produced collections for hundreds of franchises, South Park figures have gone somewhat under the radar. There have been a handful of convention exclusives, but no true grails compared to other lines. That’s not a bad thing, however, as South Park Funko Pops are affordable, easy to find, and a whole lot of fun.
Now, here is our list of the 10 best South Park Funko Pops today.

The Best South Park Funko Pops
South Park doesn’t have as many Funko Pops as other franchises, but the group is well-represented in vinyl form. While the entire collection is obtainable, here are the figures we feel stand out from the rest.
1. Kyle and Stan Best Buy 2-Pack Exclusive Funko Pop #08
South Park is filled full of wacky characters, but two best friends, Kyle and Stan, are centerpieces of the show. Kyle and Stan are the core of the gang, and two figures you’ll need to have in any South Park Funko collection. While available separately, this set is often sought out by collectors.
The Kyle and Stan 2-pack was released through Best Buy in 2017. They were among the first figures to roll out in the South Park Funko line, and this exclusive pack has become increasingly hard to find. In mint condition and unopened, you can expect to pay $80-$100. The single figures of Kyle and Stan from 2017 can be just as expensive, however.

2. Cartman with Clyde GameStop Funko Exclusive #14
Eric Cartman has always been a fan favorite, so it’s no surprise there are several versions of Funko Cartman available. Choosing a favorite was challenging, although this Pop! featuring Eric with his favorite toy is impossible to pass up.
Cartman with Clyde Funko Pop! #14 is a GameStop-exclusive figure. It depicts Cartman with his BFF, Clyde Frog. Clyde has randomly shown up throughout the series over the years and can live on forever with this limited edition Funko Pop. It’s one of the most expensive South Park Pops, but well worth the price if you’re a fan of Cartman or his quirky stuffed friends.

3. Funko Pop! Zombie Kenny #05 Hot Topic Exclusive
The quietest and most misunderstood member of the South Park gang is Kenny McCormick. While you won’t find as many Funko Pop! South Park figures featuring this character, the best was one of the first characters from the collection.
Released in 2017 alongside his other pals, Zombie Kenny #05 is a vinyl figure that does the character justice. He’s missing an arm and has been stitched up from top to bottom while still wearing his trademark jacket. Kenny is a Hot Top exclusive figure, but one that’s affordable at around $40 to $80.

4. Flocked Towelie #34 Amazon Exclusive
The Flocked Towelie Funko Pop from Amazon doesn’t show off the bloodshot eyes, but it looks fantastic and is one of the more affordable figures to make our list. To say that South Park has produced some crazy characters would be an understatement. In fact, we’ve included two of their more popular and unusual characters on this list. The first is soft, blue, and has a deep love of hippie lettuce.
Towelie is a genetically engineered towel with a serious drug problem. While you can’t help Towelie reunite with Rebecca and Washcloth, you can add him to your Funko Pop! collection today.

5. South Park Chef #15 Funko Pop!
Chef has long been one of the more beloved characters on South Park, well before his catchy song about a certain sweet treat became a hit with fans of the show. While Chef may no longer be with us today, you can celebrate the character with this Funko Pop! figure.
South Park Chef #15 is a standard-sized Pop that arrived about a year after the first wave in 2018. It wasn’t a limited edition figure or an exclusive, but the price has held up nicely over time. While you can’t find Jerome McElroy on shelves anymore, this Funko Pop is easy to obtain through online retailers like eBay and Amazon.

6. Terrance and Philip Funko Pop! Chase Variants
You can’t have a South Park Funko collection without key characters, including Terrance and Phillip. While this dynamic duo has never been released as a box set, there are standard versions of each figure along with a chase variant.
Sir Phillip Niles Argyle and Sir Terrance Henry Stoot are comedy stars from Canada, and two hilarious parts of the show since their debut. They’ve been featured on the show and in video games like The Stick of Truth and Phone Destroyer. Terrance and Phillip are both available in standard versions, but the Canadian flag variants can be much harder to find.
7. Funko Pop! Town: South Park PC Principle
The best Funko Pop Town collectible is South Park Elementary with PC Principle. Funko has delved into different areas for Pops over the years, including advent calendars and record cover art. South Park hasn’t seen as much love as other lines, but there are a few collectible sets, including one with a popular principal.
Peter Charles, also known as PC Principal, is a man who loves sunglasses, khakis, and being politically correct. This Funko Pop South Park Town collectible dropped in 2021 and shows off a full-color version of the famous South Park Elementary School. PC Principal is just as large as the school, which suits his personality perfectly.

8. Digital Stan #36 Convention Exclusive
The Digital Stan #36 Funko Pop was part of the 2022 Funko Convention Exclusive collection. South Park is known for lampooning a variety of topics. Nothing is safe, whether it’s a celebrity, fanbase, or popular franchise from Disney. If you’re a fan of Tron or just love Funko Pops that glow in the dark, you’ll be thrilled with this exclusive.
The standard-sized figure shows Stan in a Tron-inspired costume complete with a digital toboggan. The accents on this piece glow in the dark, and the price point makes it an attractive option for new and old collectors alike.
Check out Digital Stan #36 on Amazon.
9. Mr. Hankey Funko Pop! #21
The second freaky figure on our list, Mr. Hanky the Christmas Poo, pairs perfectly with our first and frequently appears on South Park. While he isn’t a stoner, this popular South Park character is the best way to add holiday cheer to your collection.
Mr. Hankey has been part of the gang since the first season of South Park. He magically appears from toilets in the town at Christmas, spreading cheer and other things along the way. The character loves to ride the Poo-Choo Express but will take up less space in your collection as a traditional-sized Funko Pop figure.
Check out Mr. Hankey #21 on Amazon.
10. Cartman Funko Pop! #17
Cartman has had dozens of catchy phrases find their way into pop culture since South Park debuted. None have gone over quite as well as one, however. When you want people to respect your authoritah… the Cartman Funko Pop! #17 is the only way to go.
This fun little Funko Pop allows you to relive a famous moment from the show, and you’ll be tempted to say the catchphrase with every glance. The stoic figure of Eric Cartman is picture-perfect with mirror shades and a nightstick because he means business.
Check out Cartman #17 on Amazon.
South Park has been one of the longest-running cartoons outside of the Simpsons, although they don’t have nearly as many collectibles as that franchise. We were a bit surprised to find some popular figures missing from Funko’s Pop! lineup, including Mr. Slave and Timmy, but that could change with upcoming South Park Funko Pop releases.
