Tiger Woods is about to appear in the controversial cartoon TV series ‘South Park’, according to widespread media reports in the USA.

And the creators of the Comedy Central cartoon, the reports say, are unrepentant about depicting Woods in an upcoming episode.

“It’s such an important issue in America right now – this sex addiction outbreak,” said Matt Stone, who makes the series with partner Trey Parker.

“We’re all really concerned about him and hope he gets better, but there’s a delicacy in talking about (Woods) that we don’t have to worry about.”

The creators of the Comedy Central cartoon have often taken on subjects which have proved controversial, including Michael Jackson.

Woods will feature in the opening of South Park’s 14th season on Wednesday, where he will encounter regular characters Stan, Kyle, Kenny and Cartman in their animated Colorado town.

The story line has not been disclosed but the episode is likely to draw a much greater audience than it normally does.

Since the show’s first episode in 1997, Parker and Stone, in their eagerness to get on-going laughs, have not been too concerned about what is in good or bad taste or what is politically correct and have upset and angered many celebrities, actor Tom Cruise famously being one of them after South Park mocked the Church of Scientology.

That the show is still up and around and as healthy as ever as it’s 200th episode comes up next month is a major surprise to Stone.

“We can’t even believe we’re still here doing this,” he says.
