At least an unintentional influence.

Most of the characters had basis in friends, or in the case of Your Cartman's Mom, an ex who cheated on Trey Parker I believe. Same first name.

However, characters change over time. There was an extended family that got dropped for not really working. I forget which episode, but I do not think it was the infamous "pubes" or "Scott Tennorman Must Die!" episode where the two concluded that Cartman is evil, and they should depict him as such.

Cartman would not move the Ethiopians "to where the FOOD is!" In fact, the "Stavin' Marvin" episode demonstrates that.

Things develop. They certainly did not expect Kenny to have some kinship to the Elder Gods and, dare I speak write it, the Old Ones?!

What?! BEHIND ME!

NO!
