"South Park" has taken on its fair share of reality stars and TV personalities; now, the animated show is tackling TLC's "Here Comes Honey Boo Boo."

In a preview clip of the show, Alana "Honey Boo Boo" Thompson and her mom June are seen in cartoon form shopping for pigs, trying to find the one with the most "pizzazz."

The season finale of "Here Comes Honey Boo Boo" was the highest rated show on cable TV last Wednesday night, beating out "South Park."

While the show's critics suggest it mocks small-town Southern life, TLC has ordered more episodes featuring the show's 7-year-old star.

Bristol Palin, daughter of one-time vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin and a contestant on "Dancing with the Stars," recently told Inside Edition she's among Honey Boo Boo's  supporters.

"I'm a big fan. More power to her for having such a successful show," Palin said.
