Canonicity

The canonicity in this pairing is very obvious. Stan and Wendy get together in the pilot episode "Cartman Gets an Anal Probe". They have been attracted to each other for quite some time before the show even started, apparently.

Season 1

Season 1 usually featured Stan and Wendy's relationship regarding holiday traditions: Halloween, Christmas and then Valentine's Day - each nearly 2 months apart. This season also depicted their pairing the most frequently and also the most positively. 

In "Cartman Gets an Anal Probe", they met and spoke to each other for the first time, where Wendy told him to meet her at Stark's Pond after school. Kyle suggested he kiss Wendy, Cartman suggested he slip her the tongue, Kenny suggeted something muffled to which Stan responded, "What? How do you know she has a cat?" then they all burst out in laughter. Chef advises Stan to "make sweet love down by the fire" and with Kyle impatient about finding clues to tracking down his little brother Ike who had been kidnapped by aliens, he was reluctant to let Stan go down to Stark's Pond thinking he couldn't do it alone (Cartman went home, Officer Barbrady killed Kenny). Wendy does meet Stan but he keeps throwing up due to him being too shy to talk to her at all. Kyle then tells her to just make love to Stan already disregarding how personal it is. After Wendy gives clues on how to get Ike back from the aliens, using Cartman as bait who has a satellite lodged inside him, Kyle did get Ike back and Stan finally said something to Wendy without throwing up (it was thanking her for her help) and she was puckering her lips aiming at Stan, but he threw up again. Instead of running off, she asks what foods he threw up.

However in "Flashbacks", Stan thinks he kissed Wendy instead of throwing up on her.


In "Weight Gain 4000", Wendy pleads Stan to help her stop Mr. Garrison from shooting Kathie Lee Gifford, but Stan prioritizes Wendy earning her stolen position as the winner of the Environmental Essay Contest which Cartman robbed over Kathie Lee being murdered. She then uses a soft happy voice to lure him in, then Wendy asked Barbrady for help on finding Garrison. Barbrady was too stupid to even remember that he was the one telling Garrison where he can get a clear view (shot) of Kathie Lee, then Stan immediately spots where Garrison is, at the Book Depository.

They both rush in and Wendy convinces Garrison that shooting Kathie Lee will give him no benefit and cannot make up for his loss back in the talent show contest, which will make him a loser for sure without anyone judging him. However, Stan does think that it was unfair of Kathie Lee to throw her voice with 2 dummies at once, inspiring Garrison to get angry again and shoot. However, Cartman got so fat from weight gain 4000 that he broke open the plank stage sending Kathie Lee flying as well as Garrison's bullet firing at Kenny. Wendy then exposes Cartman's secret - he plagarized Walden to win the contest, but Stan explains that this is hypocritical of her trying to calm Garrison down to get even with Kathie Lee. Wendy argues, "Well, not if it's Cartman!" but Stan tells her that no one gets to be on TV and she joins Stan and Kyle in snacking on tuna sandwiches made by Kyle's mom.

However in "Flashbacks", Stan thinks that he made out with Wendy very pleasantly holding her whole body while he kissed her the same way he did with the show's pilot episode.

In "Pinkeye", Stan and Wendy have a fight for the first time. Before the episode started, Wendy told Stan to dress up like Raggedy Andy for the Halloween contest while she dresses up like Raggedy Ann so they can enter as a pair, but she changed her mind without telling Stan and instead came in as Chewbacca. At the costume contest, Stan is humiliated for his costume to which he complains to Wendy but she doesn't think Stan is truly upset and therefore does not apologize to him. Later at night, she does see how much she hurt Stan and this time tries to apologize, but he still remains mad, knowing that he can't forgive her immediately after she ditched him on purpose. He then yells at Wendy that he wants her to die, perhaps meaning that Stan certainly wanted to break up with her already despite that their relationship only begun recently. 

Unknown to Stan, Wendy was caught by zombies, then off-screen she was bitten and turned into one, now infected with pinkeye. After slaughtering several zombies with a chainsaw, Stan sees Wendy as a zombie and very slowly tries to bite Stan. Cartman keeps telling Stan to kill her but Stan starts trying to talk sense into her, realizing that what Wendy did doesn't make her deserve to die, and in a case of verbal irony, takes back what he said earlier. Just as Wendy was about to bite him, Stan refuses to. Kyle then slices zombie Kenny in half which then brings all infected people back to normal, including the dissected zombies. He and Wendy rejoice and admit they both regret their actions on Halloween. Just when she is about to kiss Stan, he vomits on her, and Wendy runs off, saying "Barf is gross!"

In "Mr. Hankey the Christmas Poo", they all participate in the original Christmas play celebrating Jesus' birth, but due to the town's outrageous demands of censorship, starting with Kyle's mom Sheila objecting to the Christian message in opposition to Kyle's Jewish faith, they are reduced to wearing only dark grey-green colored monochromatic suits with Minimalist music and neutral-toned narration, the audience gets into riot. Stan and Wendy then both acknowledge they believe in Mr. Hankey the Christmas Poo, which makes him come to life and tell the audience that Christmas deserves to spread cheer without regard to censorship.

Stan-puke-Wendy

Stan puking on Wendy in "Tom's Rhinoplasty"

In "Tom's Rhinoplasty", Wendy suggested that she and Stan spend Valentine's Day going on a play date by making a boat out of cardboard pretending it's a cruise, then dress up in little costumes and pretend to get married. As usual, Cartman mocks their relationship whenever he sees how strong they are bonding by loudly laughing and insulting Wendy's suggestions. Since Mr. Garrison needed a rhinoplasty, Ms. Ellen took over as substitute and Stan fell in love with her, with Wendy gasping in horror first seeing Stan smiling warmly and having little hearts fly over his head. Even so, Stan couldn't hear her cries for reply. 

Wendy later on hears how much Stan is complimenting Ms. Ellen and tries to lie to him about having grotesque features. Finding that she has been turned down as Stan's Valentine, she starts crying and has flashbacks of when she tried to kiss/ greet/ hug Stan but he threw up, including footage from "Cartman Gets an Anal Probe" and "Pinkeye." She later on requests Bebe to give her a makeover, wearing heavy lipstick, facial make-up, brushed hair, and a leather suit in which Stan and every boy in class (including Cartman who normally hates her) became attracted to. However, Ms. Ellen came in wearing the same makeover Wendy is wearing, aggravating Wendy that her plan to seduce Stan back failed. Ms. Ellen then invites Stan over for dinner as a reward for scoring the highest on the spelling test. Wendy watched them having dinner, then cries in front of Ms. Ellen and Stan the next day in the classroom telling them about why she is heartbroken. In the next scene, Arabs come in and abduct Ms. Ellen claiming she massacred their people. With Ms. Ellen gone, Stan reunites with Wendy and she is telling him to kiss her but he throws up into her mouth, and she quickly brushes it out but when Stan apologizes, she claims "No it's okay, Stan! Everything's going to be okay!" At the end, it turns out Wendy hired the Arabs to kill Ms. Ellen.

Season 2

Stan wrote a song for Wendy in "Chef Aid" called "Wake Up Wendy" sung by Elton John.

Stan and Wendy sung "It Happened in Sun Valley" where Stan threw up twice during the middle of the song. After they finish the song, Wendy kisses him but he throws up. This is included in "Mr. Hankey's Christmas Classics Album."

Bigger, Longer, and Uncut

Stan spends the majority of "South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut" worried about impressing Wendy (who appears to be falling in love with Gregory), despite the events taking place. Stan sings "Wendy's Song" (a love song referring to Wendy as "The girl that I like") three separate times in the movie. He also co-founds the Resistance Organization to impress her (proven by his lines in "What Would Brian Boitano Do?", where he sings "For Wendy I'll be an activist too, 'cause that's what Brian Boitano'd do), volunters to take on the rescue mission when Gregory takes over La Resistance to impress her, and tries desperatly to find the Clitoris (having mistaken Chef's advice to mean locating a being named the Clitoris). Wendy also seems to be intrested in Stan as she is shown annoyed at Gregory for insulting Stan when he and the other boys failed their rescue mission. Towards the end, Wendy kisses Stan on the lips, who then vomits on her, then they rejoice together as Wendy exclaims "F*** Gregory! F*** him right in the ear!"

Seasons 4 to 6

Stan also became very shocked when Wendy kissed Cartman passionately in "Chef Goes Nanners", possibly because he and Wendy were in a relationship at the time. The reason of the kiss was because Wendy was attracted to Cartman and Bebe told Wendy to kiss him and it will be over. At the end of the episode, Wendy confessed to Cartman that all the attraction was gone after the kiss.

In "Something You Can Do With Your Finger", Wendy joins a boy band that Cartman brought together, despite his objections about her. This was probably a way for her to join the boys and get even more closer to Stan. 

In the episode "Bebe's Boobs Destroy Society", when the boys invite Bebe out to throw rocks at cars, Wendy says, "Stan, you've never asked me to throw rocks at cars with you guys." Stan replies with, "That's different, dude. You're like, my girlfriend. Bebe's just... I don't know. She's just cool." This could imply that Wendy and Stan don't spend much time around each other and Stan doesn't value Wendy all that much. This may be an example of his inexperience with girlfriends. Later on, Wendy gets breast implants but after Bebe influences Stan that he was obsessing over breast size, Stan ridicules Wendy for her implants. 

Break-Up

When Wendy broke up with Stan for Token in "Raisins", he was deeply devastated, going as far as joining the Goth Kids. After a heartfelt speech from Butters (who had also gotten dumped), Stan got over the break-up by saying "Hey Wendy, you're a bitch!" and flipping both her and Token off. Since then, they had not spoken to each other.

In "Douche and Turd", Wendy was with one of the several people who watched Stan getting banished from South Park, perhaps meaning that she does have sympathy to him. When Stan did come back, she cheered for him voting. 

Stan still showed some romantic feelings to Wendy, as seen in the episode "Follow That Egg!" which aired 2 years after "Raisins" when he was worried over whether he and Wendy would be partners for the egg project. When Kyle ended up as her partner, Stan became intensely jealous of Kyle, believing that they were together. Wendy is also seen to have shown some feeling to Stan; when Stan and Kyle were paired together, Kyle took the egg that Wendy helped decorate. She was concerned about the egg's safety until she saw that Stan's paternal side. She was, unfortunately, rejected by Stan at the end of the episode when he responded to her comment with "Like I give a crap about what you think, Wendy."

In "Smug Alert", Wendy was the only one out of every guest at Kyle's goodbye party to watch Stan leave and she got annoyed by Cartman taunting Stan.

In "The Snuke", Stan and Wendy can be seen talking together in the classroom at the beginning of the episode.

They eventually get back together in "The List", which also aired 2 years after "Follow That Egg!" when they work together to bring down a corrupted list that crushed Kyle's ego and moral. When Stan and Wendy share a close moment at the end, Stan vomits on Wendy.

Post-Reunion

In the episode "Super Fun Time", Stan and Wendy are partners for the tour of the Pioneer Village. Stan says that he would like to play along with 1800s theme, but he doesn't want to look like a dork in front of his girlfriend, which Wendy expressed her appreciation at. When Stan goes to save Kenny from the terrorists, he tells Wendy to look away, as he has to role-play as an 1800s settler to save Kenny, basically appearing as a dork.

In "Breast Cancer Show Ever", Stan was concerned about Wendy since she was going to fight Cartman. However, Stan did nothing about it.  He may have not interfered because he knew Wendy could take care of herself and her motive was justified.

In "Elementary School Musical", Stan gets jealous of Bridon Gueermo, under the impression that Bridon is stealing Wendy away from him. However, when Stan goes to confront Wendy, Wendy assures Stan that "That'd be stupid. Bridon can have whatever girl he wants." Wendy then gives Stan a kiss on his cheek. This is worth noting because this is the first time Stan did not throw up, although this may have been because he was so anxious, also noteworthy that this is their first kiss on screen in the TV series, their only one before then was in the movie. 

Wendy asks Stan if he wants to study together in "Eat, Pray, Queef", but she is turned down.

In "Butters' Bottom Bitch", when Butters asks Wendy if she wants to join his "kissing company", Stan lashes out at Butters, aggressively threatening to kick his ass if he calls Wendy a bitch. Later, Stan also quietly listened to Wendy yelling at him, possibly berating him for turning Butters into a pimp.

In "Dances With Smurfs", Stan defends Wendy from Cartman's insults. However, Wendy seemed untroubled by Cartman insults.

In "You Have 0 Friends", Wendy tells Stan to change his profile information on his newly created Facebook page to "In a Relationship", as she was quite upset over it being listed as "Single". She told him to add her as a friend, too. Later in the episode, she jealously mistook Stan's grandmother's friend Susan, as a girl flirting with Stan by commenting that he looked cute in an old photo of a young Stan in a rabbit costume. Stan angrily yelled at her that she is incorrect about thinking Stan is cheating on her. How they ended this fight did not happen on-screen. 

In "Insheeption", Wendy told Stan that she was worried about his hoarding problem, thinking that it would affect their relationship.

StendyPicnic
In "Ass Burgers", Wendy is worried about Stan's negative attitude then runs off to Kyle, begging for him to join her in trying to psychologically help Stan out of his cynicism. Before she can finish talking about her suggestion, Kyle cuts her off and tells her that he would rather join Cartman's burger business instead of helping Stan, leaving Wendy unsatisfied. She did however, still go to see Stan who by now already cured his cynicism, also marking a triumphant return of Stan and Wendy's relationship since "Elementary School Musical" where they are shown happy together. They are shown to share a picnic together at the end of the episode. 

In "Bass to Mouth", when a private e-mail about Stan commenting on another girl's buttcrack was sent to Kenny via Eavesdropper, Wendy was furious. She later joined a group that Stan had put together to shut down Eavesdropper.

In "The Hobbit", Stan asks Wendy for an updated photo, because the other girls had photoshopped their pictures.  Wendy is furious by this and starts yelling at Stan and pointing out his 'short legs' and her faults, as well as faults of other girls, before they and Mr Mackey appear.

Many fans have wondered if this is a true pairing because Stan and Wendy never kissed together and only Wendy has done so. Trey Parker has responded in one interview that Stan and Wendy kissed multiple times, when asked "Did Stan and Wendy ever kiss?" Trey has even said that "they had sex but you didn't see it." Matt Stone stated that he could remember an episode where Cartman, Kenny, and Kyle were at the bus stop and that they could be seen behind a tree. This is a joke though, as Stone also said that "If you're dumb enough to look, you deserve to lose that much of your life".

In the video game "South Park The Stick of Truth" if the player (without Stan as your buddy) stands at the bus stop long enough, a tree in the background starts shaking and giggling can be heard, followed by a puking and a girl's voice exclaiming "Eww!".  Some people think it's Stan and Wendy, but some people speculate the girl voice to be Liane Cartman's.

Popularity

There are many fanfictions that include this pairing, and is arguably the most popular out of the canon pairings. Despite some controversy regarding their attitude and actions, Stan and Wendy's relationship remains highly popular, being set as one of the most critically approved in an animated cartoon.

Trivia

  • Stendy is the only child pairing that has lasted more than one episode; it lasted from Seasons 1 to 7 and Seasons 12 to present. However, it is implied Kelley may have lasted longer than the one episode Kelly was in ("Rainforest Schmainforest"), as Kenny is mentioned as visiting his girlfriend in "Spontaneous Combustion".
    • As of Season 17, this has been debunked by confirmation that Token and Nichole's relationship has continued, and later by the canonization of Heiman and debatably Revin.
  • Stan has created two songs for Wendy: "Wendy's Song" (not to be confused with Wendy's Audition Song) and "Wake Up Wendy"(written by Stan and sung by Elton John at Stan's request), and also dedicated his solo portion of "What Would Brian Boitano Do?" to her.
  • Wendy was based on Trey Parker's girlfriend Liane Adamo while Stan is based on Trey Parker himself. After Trey Parker was deserted by his girlfriend, he wrote Stan and Wendy's break-up in "Raisins" which lasted for 4 seasons. (End of season 7 to end of season 11) 
  • Seasons 1 and 12 depicted Stan and Wendy's relationship the most frequently as well as the most positively;  Season 1 was the first set of episodes they were together and Season 12 was the first season they reunited after their break-up.
  • Seasons 8, 10, 16 and 19 did not have any episodes where they reacted to each other or interacted.
