"South Park" founders, Matt Stone and Trey Parker are being sued because of three episodes aired on the show featuring "The Lollipop King from Imaginationland."

TMZ reported that Stone and Parker are being sued by a man who says "South Park" took the idea of The Lollipop King from his show called, "Lollipop Forest" by Exavier Wardlaw.

In the three series "Imaginationland" on "South Park" the characters on the show go on a journey that is filled with imaginary creatures such as the Lollipop King in question and a leprechaun.

The lawsuit said that the "Lollipop Forest" was a family show and its reputation has gone done because of South Park's "unwholesome language and sexual innuendo," TMZ reports.

TMZ reports that the "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."

Wardlaw is suing for copyright infringement and wants the Lollipop King to be removed from the "Imaginationland" Trilogy.

"The 'South Park' television show and its producers, directors and writers disregarded the public copyright notice and appropriated 'The Lollipop Forest' for financial gain, without permission or attribution of authorship or compensation for use," reads the lawsuit, reported by Thewrap.com

In 2008, "South Park's" "Imaginationland" won an Emmy for Outstanding Animated Program for a show one hour or more.
