Matt Stone and Trey Parker aka the creators of South Park have just come through with a fantastic quarantine gift — they've selected the best episodes from the show's 23-season run, creating the ultimate greatest hits watch list.

As part of a piece created for EW, the showrunners not only shared their favorite South Park installments but also outlined the episodes they'd rather forget. Their shitlist, for example, contains basically every single episode from the first three seasons. Parker said, "If I had to permanently erase anything from the library, it would basically be anything before season four. It's just embarrassing to watch. Okay, we were, like, 26, 27. But it's like, ''Really? We thought that was funny? We thought that was well-written? Oh my God, this is terrible.''

The first episode of the second season did make the "best of" cut, though. Why? Stone said it's because "It's so f---ing weird, and it's so different, and the fact that nobody else really liked it makes me like it more."

Find their best and worst episodes below.
