'South Park' Creators Sued

Lollipop King Traumatized

By Cartoon Tea-Bagging

The Lollipop King from the "Imaginationland" episodes of "South Park" was never meant to be exposed to terrorists, gang rapists or Cartman's testicles ... this according to a new lawsuit obtained by TMZ.

Matt Stone and Trey Parker are being sued by a guy who claims he created a show called "The Lollipop Forest" years ago ... only to have the "South Park" guys ripoff one of his characters for the 3-episode "Imaginationland" series that aired back in 2007.

The character in question is The Lollipop King -- which, according to the suit, is a rip off of a character called Big Bad Lollipop from Exavier Wardlaw's "The Lollipop Forest."

In his suit, Wardlaw claims "Lollipop Forest" is a wholesome family show -- and it's value was diminished when the Big Bad Lollipop ripoff was exposed to "unwholesome language and sexual innuendo."

FYI -- during the "South Park" episode ... Lollipop King gets choked out by a Storm Trooper ... witnesses the carnage of a suicide bomber ... and gets a front row seat as Kyle performs a sexual act of an oral nature on Cartman's nether region (... it was a crazy episode).

According to the suit, filed in federal court in Philadelphia, Exavier is suing for copyright infringement -- and is demanding "South Park" remove all traces of Lollipop King from the "Imaginationland" trilogy.

We reached out to Matt and Trey for comment -- so far, no word back.

I can't decide which is the most hilarious: Cartman's ******ging or the lollipop lawsuit.

ALL CHARACTERS AND EVENTS IN THIS SHOW--EVEN THOSE BASED ON REAL PEOPLE--ARE ENTIRELY FICTIONAL. ALL CELEBRITY VOICES ARE IMPERSONATED.....POORLY. THE FOLLOWING PROGRAM CONTAINS COARSE LANGUAGE AND DUE TO ITS CONTENT IT SHOULD NOT BE VIEWED BY ANYONE

What a moron. I'm sure he'll lose this dumb lawsuit but I hope Trey and Matt counter sue him to pay for their legal fees.

That was five years ago... what ever damage this guy thinks was done by that episode is over and done with. So... get over it. You can't really copyright a sugary treat.
