One in this series of animated programs for adults about the town of South Park, which is populated by an oversexed school chef, a psychotic teacher, Jesus Christ, and a group of acerbic, foul-mouthed youngsters. During a field trip at an archaeological dig site, Cartman tosses aside a triangle covered with strange designs, which Kyle pockets. After the archaeologist says the artifact may be thousands of years old, Cartman wants it back and Kyle refuses. Film critic Leonard Maltin, meanwhile, is begging Chef to help him find Barbra Streisand, who is rumored to own a condo nearby. Upon learning about Kyle's triangle, Streisand confronts the boys and demands that they hand over the artifact. When Kyle refuses, Streisand and Cartman each devise plots to acquire the artifact. Maltin elucidates Streisand's plan: if she acquires the triangle and connects it to a similiar one in her possession, she will become Mecha-Streisand -- the most powerful celebrity on the face of the earth. Ultimately, Streisand tricks the children into giving up the artifact and connects the two triangles; upon becoming the powerful Mecha-Streisand, she wreaks havoc on South Park. Maltin calls in the services of Robert Smith, lead singer of the Cure, to stop the mega-celebrity's ego-driven reign. Maltin and actor Sidney Poitier unsuccessfully try to thwart Mecha-Streisand, who threatens to destroy the entire town. After Kenny is strangled to death by a tetherball rope, the lead singer of the Cure punches Mecha-Streisand in her weakest spot -- the nose -- and the town is saved. As everybody recalls their harrowing experiences, Ike appears in a larger-than-normal form. Commercials deleted.
