A Mother's Courage was an online South Park animation from Halloween of 1998, created using the now defunct WebProducer by Media Conveyor. The cartoon is about Kyle, Stan and Kenny carving a pumpkin to look like Lou Diamond Phillips, while Cartman eats an entire bag of candy corn, leading him to puke. It features the voices of Trey Parker and Matt Stone. It was later taken down and redone in comic form. The short was forgotten about until it was uploaded by YouTube user Mannis.

Why is this named a mothers courage. Why couldn't it have been named no knives for Kenny or something?

This doesn't even have anything to do with mothers or courage

I believe the title is a reference to "A Mother's Courage: The Mary Thomas Story". It's a 1989 made for TV movie by Disney. It's about a single mother raising her children in a rough Chicago neighborhood. It is the true story of NBA star Isaiah Thomas' childhood. The movie does not feature Lou Diamond Phillips in case you were wondering.

I have no idea whatsoever why the short is named this way. It must just be a random thing.

Did some wildcard searching of the Media Conveyor website on the Wayback Machine and found an official press release. Dates the animation to 29 October 1997. http://web.a...outhpark.htm "The original 90-second on-line short, entitled "A Mother's Courage", was created by Digital Evolution to complement the South Park Halloween episode which aired on October 29, 1997."

The Media Conveyor product comes from Digital Evolution, Inc. according to the press release. http://web.a...om:80/de.htm "Founded in 1994 and headquartered in Los Angeles, California, with offices in New York and Seattle, Digital Evolution, Inc. is a privately held information technology company and software developer. The company uses its platform independent expertise to develop and deploy large-scale Internet and Intranet solutions, database and electronic commerce applications and CD-ROM/interactive networks for a range of Fortune 500 companies including AT&T, Deloitte & Touche, IBM, Microsoft, Planet Hollywood Online, The STARBRIGHT Foundation, Toyota Motor Sales USA and Warner Bros. Online."

DigEv later merged with US Interactive in 1998, which might correlate to why the file was yanked. http://web.a...m:80/pr.html http://www.usinteractive.com/

"Digital Evolution, Inc. and US Interactive, Inc. today announced a merger of the two companies, effective immediately. The newly-unified organization, to be called US Interactive, Inc., will have a projected revenue of over $20 million in 1998."
