Game of Thrones creator, George RR Martin, is the latest in the list of South Park celebrity parodies but what are the best ones?
Game of Thrones is one of the most popular TV series on the box at the moment but that hasn’t stopped cartoon comedy South Park from creating a parody episode about GoT creator, George RR Martin. The fantasy writer has been characterised in his own personal South Park episode as an individual obsessed with the male genitalia, something which the screenwriter sought to deny as one of his personality traits when speaking at the San Diego Comic-Con.

Martin has yet to watch his episode and whether he will remains unknown. "I’m a sensitive soul, would it be rough on me?" he asks. "I don’t know, we’ll see."

The popular musical is in-demand all over the country
The Book of Mormon will be mocking the Mormon missionaries just down the road from their headquarters when it hits Salt Lake City in 2015. From the creators of South Park, Matt Stone and Trey Parker, the musical will be part of the 2014-2015 Utah Subscription Series at the Capitol Theatre and Kingsbury Hall.

“This is one of the most exciting lineups in the 30 years we have been bringing national tours of Broadway musicals to Salt Lake,” said Broadway Across America/Utah president John Ballard in a news release. "The Book of Mormon" follows two missionaries, Elders Price and Cunningham, on their trek to a remote village in Uganda, which is under the control of a brutal warlord.

South Park fan? Buy the game. RPG fan? buy the game. South park fan and RPG fan... you get where this is going
The day all South Park fans have been waiting for has finally arrived; The Stick of Truth, which promised to be a 14-hour expletive-filled, powers that be-mocking, ethnic minority-offending, satirical mind-bender of a bumper, playable South Park episode is released today, March 7. But has the game matched those promises?
Critics Love South Park 'The Stick of Truth'
Yes, would be the short answer. The critics have fallen in love with 'South Park: The Stick of Truth', praising its compelling RPG elements, which are laced with enough sarcasm and satire to truly make them a South Park experience, and the painstakingly realised world, which transmits the iconic aesthetic made famous by Matt Stone and Trey Parker over the last 17 years.

They've done pretty well to make this the FIRST one delayed
Having delivered their show on a knife-edge for 13 years now, Trey Parker and Matt Stone have delivered their first late episode. South Park is usually left to the last minute to ensure the show is fresh and contemporary, but a power cut saw Comedy Central receive the iconic, satirical comedy late.
“From animation to rendering to editing and sound, all of their computers were down for hours and they were unable to finish episode 1704 ‘Goth Kids 3: Dawn of the Posers’ in time for air tonight,” the network said in a statement. “It sucks to miss an air date but after all these years of tempting fate by delivering the show last minute, I guess it was bound to happen,” said Parker.
A standard show is kicked off on Thursday, when the team get together and flesh out a narrative. What follows is a manic 5 days of getting the episode animated, rendered, voiced and finished for air on the following Wednesday. That’s a 6-day turnaround in total, and they do that for 7 weeks in a row.

With their hectic, one episode per-week schedule, a missed deadline always seemed inevitable, and last night it finally happened
South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone have developed a weekly routine in which they and their team of writers, animators and the rest of the South Park Studios come up with the idea for an episode and get it on air all in seven days. With such a tight schedule to work from, and the fact that procrastination is much more fun that a serious work ethic, a missed deadline always seemed likely to happen. On Wednesday, 16 October night, this is exactly what happened.
We can't just blame the team behind the episode that should have been aired last night, as the studios where the controversial comedy is made was hit with a power cut right on the last day of production (15 Oct.), rendering the episode in limbo until the problem was fixed. The power didn't come on in time for the episode to be finished before it's slot on Comedy Central though, and the episode 'Goth Kids 3: Dawn of the Posers' will be aired next week instead.
South Park Studios released a statement shortly before the episode was due to air, explaining, "On Tuesday night, South Park Studios lost power. From animation to rendering to editing and sound, all of their computers were down for hours and they were unable to finish episode 1704, ‘Goth Kids 3: Dawn Of The Posers' in time for air tonight."
