“South Park” creators Matt Stone and Trey Parker say that choosing their favorite episode would be like choosing between their children.

Not that they’re above that.

Stone and Parker hand-picked their 10 most-beloved episodes of the long-running Comedy Central show to appear on the new “South Park the Hits: Volume 1” DVD, in stores Oct. 3.

The new DVD also includes four bonus episodes and “The Spirit of Christmas,” a never-released animated short.

Among the episodes reprised on the DVD:

“Best Friends Forever,” which Parker described as “a final battle between heaven and hell”; “Good Times with Weapons”; and the infamous, “Trapped in the Closet,” featuring a cartoon version of “South Park” nemesis Tom Cruise. Said Parker, “I don’t think we’ve ever had a single episode that has stirred up this much unwanted and wanted attention.”

“South Park,” which first aired Aug. 13, 1997, begins its tenth season on Comedy Central on Oct. 4.
