In South Park S03 E16 Are you there God? It's Jesus, a new character was introduced. He is none other than God. In that episode, God is depicted very differently which shocks everyone in the crowd.
He is shown to be a short-legged squirrel, elephant, cat, hippopotamus tetra-morph with an extendable, reptile-like tongue.
This is not explained in the show. When Randy Marsh asks "That is God?", He just replies...
What did you expect me to look like son?
Did the creators of the show or the channel say anything why the God is shown like this? Is this an inspiration from anything or a parody (if any)?
The words of the creators or from channel would be very much helpful than fan theories without sources.
