Mr. and Mrs. Garrison Senior are Mr. Garrison's parents. They reside in Arkansas. They first appeared in the Season Three episode "World Wide Recorder Concert", and made a cameo appearance in the Season Twenty episode "Oh, Jeez".
Mr. Garrison Senior
AppearanceMr. Garrison Senior is a burly, square-jawed senior citizen who wears blue work overalls with a red-outlined nametag with an orange long-sleeved shirt underneath when working at his gas station. At home or at his local bar, he wears his orange long-sleeved top with a dark green overcoat and dark brown trousers and black shoes. He has age lines on his face, and gray-white hair (lighter than his wife's) swept back from the right temple, like a receding version of his son's hairstyle in the drunken barn dance flashback of "Cartman's Mom is a Dirty Slut".
Mr. Garrison Senior is a somewhat taciturn, hard-working man, as he owns and runs his own gas station despite clearly being past the retirement age. Unlike the rest of his family, he has quite a normal moral compass. He becomes shocked in "World Wide Recorder Concert" when his son (and later his wife) become angry with him because he never sexually molested his son as a child, and even more shocked when Counselor Mr. Mackey talks with him at his gas station and recommends he "have sex with [his] 41-year-old son in order to save his life". Confused, but wanting to help his son, he reluctantly asks his drinking buddies for advice at his local bar, but they mistake his question as a "scruples" riddle and get distracted asking each other different riddles. Frustrated, he uses his own initiative and arranges for the musician Kenny G to have sex with Mr. Garrison, pretending to be him. He tries to pay him for his services, but to his surprise Kenny G refuses to take the money. He represents the voice of sanity in this episode; wanting to help his son but simultaneously being totally revolted by the suggestion that he act sexually towards his son.
Mrs. Garrison Senior
Mrs. Garrison Senior is a somewhat diminutive elderly lady with shoulder-length, wavy, receding hair (the same steal gray as her son's) framing her circular face. She wears a white long-sleeved shirt with gold buttons down the front and a somewhat baggy purple cardigan with a v-neck. She tucks this into her dark blue skirt, which covers her knees. She wears white tights or long socks and lack shoes. She wears pink-purple lipstick which makes her mouth shape quite small and circular and small black-framed rectangular glasses (about half the size of her son's). Her face-shape, eyesight and hair-color are the same as her son's, implying that Mr. Garrison inherited more of his mother's traits than his father's.
PersonalityMrs Garrison Senior is much more like her son (it is possible that he got his warped perspective on life from her because she was his primary carer, as she is a housewife); she becomes hugely upset when Mr. Garrison says that his father never sexually molested him as a child, denying she knew this, crying "If I knew, I would have made him do it!" though tears. She also says that her husband "did the right thing" when she thought he'd had sex with Mr. Garrison at night (though in reality it was Kenny G). She is very close to her son, repeatedly stating how proud she is that he's involved in the World Wide Recorder Concert. In turn, he seems very close to her; after he reduces her to tears by accusing her of being complicit in his father's non-abuse, he runs after her saying he's sorry. She thinks sexual molestation is an act of love, and insisting her husband molested Mr. Garrison "repeatedly", as if it was his duty as a father.
