The opening music and montage are played in a similar style to the 1980s TV series theme Buck Rogers in the 25th Century. The TV series and song were produced by Glen A. Larson.
The year is 2006,
and young Eric Cartman cannot wait for the new Nintendo Wii to come out.
Unable to cope with the wait any longer,
Eric decides to freeze himself for three weeks.
But a freak avalanche makes Eric impossible to find,
and so he remains frozen for 500 years.
