'South Park' Salutes Elian

09/25/1998 at 12:00 AM EDT

Nothing is sacred on "South Park," not even U.S. Attorney General Janet Reno. Just days after her much-criticized Saturday raid on the home of Elian Gonzalez's Miami relatives to capture the boy and return him to his father, Madame Attorney General was parodied on this week's installment of the irreverent Comedy Central animated series. She appeared in the guise of a gun-toting Easter bunny out to capture Romanian contortionists. Last week, the show's creators, Trey Parker and Matt Stone, alerted the network that they were planning an episode that would parody the Elian case. But with Saturday's news of the actual raid they had to rush production to complete the episode in time. "This is the first time they've taken such an immediate advantage of a breaking news story," Comedy Central's Debbie Liebling told the Associated Press. No word yet on whether not Reno intends to raid the homes of Parker and Stone.
