The Super Adventure Club is a fictional organization featured in the immensely popular cartoon show "South Park." It was featured in a single episode and was primarily a satirical take on Scientology, which has been mocked in the series several times. It shares various similarities to some real organizations.
The Super Adventure Club is an organization of men who travel the world molesting children. They treat the act as a ritual that will grant them everlasting life. The Super Adventure Club is physically modeled after an African hunting or safari club, as its members wear khaki sportswear and trophies line the club's walls. Their leader is William Connelly, who may be a satire of L. Ron Hubbard, the founder of Scientology.
The Super Adventure Club was featured in the episode "The Return of Chef." The episode marked the first to air since Issac Hayes, who voiced the character Chef, left the show because of its open mocking of Scientology, his religion. In the episode, Chef is brainwashed by the Super Adventure Club into traveling the world and molesting children and is later killed after falling into a canyon. It aired on March 22, 2006.
The Super Adventure Club believes that the bodies of children contain special particles that can grant everlasting life. Molesting a child transfers these particles to the molester, which is the basis for the club's travels.
The Super Adventure Club brainwashes Chef into wanting to molest children and believing in their techniques. This is a satirical take on accusations that Scientology brainwashes its members and prospective members.
Trapped in the Closet
The Super Adventure Club is the second satirical take on Scientology. The first one, featured in the episode "Trapped in the Closet," featured another outlandish take on Scientology and the likeness of celebrities P. Diddy and Tom Cruise.
