"South Park" creators Matt Stone and Trey Parker are being sued by a guy who claimed they ripped off a character of his that he created years ago for his own show.

The lawsuit, obtained by TMZ, stated that The Lollipop King from the three-episode "Imaginationland" series, which aired in 2007 as part of "South Park," is a copy of a character named Big Bad Lollipop from Exavier Wardlaw's "The Lollipop Forest," according to the gossip site.

Wardlaw claimed in the suit that the value of his show "Lollipop Forest" was diminished when "South Park" creators allegedly ripped off his Big Bad Lollipop character and exposed it to "unwholesome language and sexual innuendo."

During the "Imaginationland" episodes, King Lollipop, "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."

The lawsuit is a call for copyright infringement and is demanding "South Park" to remove all traces of Lollipop King from their episodes.

"South Park" was created by Parker and Stone for Comedy Central. The cartoon series focuses on the misadventures of four troublesome boys who use foul language in every episode in a fictional town in Colorado.

They took on their version of TLC's hit "Here Comes Honey Boo Boo" on Oct. 3, in an episode called "Raising the Bar." Click here to see a clip from the episode.

"South Park" is known for their spoofs and for making animated versions of some of Hollywood's most well-known celebrities. Illusionist David Blaine had a character on the show, as well as Tom Cruise, John Travolta and Nicole Kidman. In episode 200 and 201, Cruise persuades 200 celebrities to join his lawsuit against the town for libeling them. He then agreed to drop the lawsuit if they would help him meet the Prophet Muhammad and "obtain the magic 'goo' that will make him immune to ridicule."
