Characters

  1. Chef: Jerome "Chef" McElroy is a cartoon character on the Comedy Central series South Park who was voiced by soul singer Isaac Hayes. A cafeteria worker at the local elementary school in the town of South Park, Colorado, Chef was generally portrayed as more level-headed than the other adult residents of the town and sympathetic to the kids. His guidance was often sought by the show's core group of child protagonists – Eric Cartman, Stan Marsh, Kyle Broflovski, and Kenny McCormick – as he was usually the only adult whom they consistently trusted. To an inadvertent fault, he would frequently give inappropriate advice, usually in the non sequitur form of a lascivious soul song.
