Episode: "Go God Go/Go God Go XII” (s10e12)
Original Air Date: November 1, 2006

When the Wii released in September 2006, hysteria hit the gaming market as shipments of the motion control console were few and small. South Park taps into this mass gamer panic when Cartman decides to freeze himself three weeks prior to the Wii's launch to avoid waiting. He travels too far into the future, and must trick a militia band of atheist, ostrich-riding otters into showing him the way to the Museum of Technology in old New New Hampshire. He finds the Wii but can't play it on 26th century televisions, as is the fate of technologies even just decades old today. A cautionary tale, if ever there was one: backwards compatibility or suffer a lame future.
