George Clooney remains an avid viewer of comedy cartoon series South Park - despite being ridiculed in creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone's latest film.

George Clooney remains an avid viewer of comedy cartoon series South Park - despite being ridiculed in creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone's latest film.

The Ocean's Twelve actor - who helped South Park to launch on TV - encourages his pals Parker and Stone to poke fun at him like they did in Team America: World Police because celebrities are perfect targets of mockery.

Clooney tells movie magazine Hotdog: "I must say I would've been offended if I wasn't in it.

"Those guys, they're friends of mine. I helped them get their show on the air and was Sparky the gay dog and was in their South Park movie. Part of the fun about being up here is that we get to be objects of that."
