The South Park series is an American adult multimedia series consisting of a television show, a film, music, and video games. The series centers around the American adult animated sitcom titled South Park. The television series was created by Trey Parker and Matt Stone and began airing in 1997.

The South Park television series spawned from two earlier animated shorts, both titled The Spirit of Christmas. The first short, that pit Jesus against Frosty, was created by Parker and Stone in 1992 after they had met at a film class at the University of California. In 1995, Brian Graden, then a Fox network executive, commissioned Parker and Stone to create a new short. This new short pit Jesus against Santa, and became popular after it became widely distributed. This short was also distributed on the internet, where it became one of the first viral videos.

Parker, Stone, and Graden developed South Park for Comedy Central, based on the Spirit of Christmas shorts. It was a major hit for the network, which led to the development of South Park merchandise, including a film titled South Park: Bigger, Longer, and Uncut, musical albums, and video games. Parker and Stone initially had no involvement in the design of the video games, although they did lend their voices for the characters. They were not happy with the final products, and as a result, they set up South Park Digital Studios so that they could assist with the design and story of South Park games.
