Billy Mays' Son: South Park Did My Family Proud

10/9/2009 4:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Billy Mays: Click to launchThis may be the first time "South Park" and "tasteful" have ever been used in the same sentence -- but Billy Mays' son thinks the show did a "tasteful" job spoofing his departed dad on this week's episode.

Earlier today, Billy Mays III called into the MJ Morning Show raving about how proud he was to have his dad appear as a cartoon ghost ... who threatened to beat up the ghost of Patrick Swayze.

For the record -- it was pretty damn funny.

Considering the pitchman's death was about three months ago, Mays was shockingly positive -- and said "things are looking up."

Rap sucks    

It was one of the funniest South Park episodes in a while, i was cracking up about everything they had on that episode. I know there's gonna be alot of what you call "haters" who don't like South Park but it's the best comedy show and screw family guy. It's also funny that people say they try nothing but to shock people, but the truth is everything on the show is what's going on in real life. Peace and South Park rules!

I used to fall asleep on the couch and Billy Mays' voice would undoubtedly wake me up around 3:00 AM, when I would shut the TV off and go to bed. Miss ya Billy.

buh-bye weiner party!    

I didn't see the episode on TV, I saw it online...and I'm assuming that what they showed on TV had a different ending than what I just watched. The plane landed in Hell on the South Park site. Is that really what Billy Mays's kid thought was tasteful?

The episode was hilarious. Billy III has been amazingly positive through everything. I'd say his dad would be proud all the way around.

SOUTH PARK RULES!! It beats Family Guy bigtime. It's clever and hilarious. That dead celebrity episode was so funny. As soon as I heard "That's ignorant" I almost wet my pants.

MJ FROM THE MJ MORNING SHOW IS A MEDIA WHORE. I CAN'T STAND HIS ASS AND HE MAKES UP HALF THE CRAP ON HIS SHOW. I WISH BILLY MAYS FAMILY DIDN'T WASTE THEIR TIME ON HIS DUMB A$$ MAKES HIM SEEM A LOT MORE SHALLOW THAN HE WAS.
RIP BILLY.

DID ANYONE EVER HEAR IF THE DRUGS WERE A TRUE ISSUE?
