"A Ladder to Heaven" is the twelfth episode of the sixth season of South Park.
For the longest time, I thought this recording (as well as the others on the tape) were all premiere airings seeing as the tape is labelled "New South Park (November - December 2002)". After a bit of digging around through newspaper listings, I've concluded that most - if not all - of these recordings are from a few days after their initial premiere. This one is undoubtedly from November 9, seeing as the closing credits embedded promote the 2002 USO Comedy Tour which reran just after this airing at 2:30 a.m. (Source: The Fresno Bee)
