South Park is celebrating its 22nd birthday. Here are some fun facts about the show that you may not know thanks to 9News.

1. South Park's creators Matt Stone and Trey Parker are Colorado natives that met in a University of Colorado film class.

2. Stone and Parker have incorporated Colorado history into the show since the beginning, that includes the very name of the show.

3. South Park is a made up town based on a real town called Fairplay that was known as South Park City in the 1800's.

Stone and Parker depict South Park as a mountain town with a history of mining and episodes show how tourism has changed the town much like towns in Colorado in real life.
