Sweet lollipop

Not everyone can appreciate the humor of South Park. The creators had to defend themselves in court because of a parody of What what in the butt’s (they won that lawsuit).

Now they are confronted with a new lawsuit. And again it concerns a parody (that is at least what the counter party says). The disputed show is the one with the Lollipop King, according to the plaintiff a copy of  the Big Bad Lollipop from The Lollipop Forrest (a somewhat older cartoon, see picture below). This constitutes copyright infringement as the copy is not authorized and diminishes the value of the Big Bad Lollipop character (because of “unwholesome language and sexual innuendo”).

It must be said that the Lollipop King has some adventures to endure, according to TMZ “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 southern region (… it was a crazy episode).”

Probably the judge will first assess whether there is a  similarity between the characters (and whether there is parody).
