Boondocks *IS* Good

I can't believe I slept on this shit for so long. I heard of the comic strip back when I still read Time. And lord knows I don't read the newspaper - well. we never got this comic but I never bothered to read it on the net either. I just SLEPT on it until they released the cartoon, and it took some encouraging to DL and watch it but with guest voices like Charlie Murphy and Samuel L. Jackson, I just had to take a look.

Yes. It's "The Boondocks" animated version on [adult swim] And WOW. It just ain't just some fuckin rehash shit like "Charlie Brown" or "For Better of for Worse" - the animation is solid. Pure ANIME style. The language is raw and hardcore just the way I like it. Best cartoon in years as "Family Guy" loses its lustre.

What do y'all think of it? Talk about the show and comics here!

I always check out the comics when I get a chance in the newspapers. It's alright but it's always too short, 3 to 4 frames only.

The cartoon is good though. I especially like Uncle Rucker; his obsession for white people is absolutely hilarious. Nothing really special about Riley and Huey though since I know thier attitude from the comics. Now they're just missing that puerto rican kid who hangs around with Huey (the younger kid?) who always wears a beanie.

I read a few strips of the comic before the show aired and thought they were pretty damn hilarious. Most were about McDonalds though, and I remember I read one about Michael Jackson.

The show is even more funny, especially that episode about Anal rape.

My favorite episode still is the one with the ho and A Pimp Named Slickback:

"Let us pray the Pimp's Prayer... Lord, please pray for the soul of this bitch and guide my pimp hand and make it strong, Lord, so that she might learn a hoe's place. Amen."

 :lol:  :lol:

I need to use that everytime the we have to take care of troublemakers LMFAO

Any time you get Al Sharpton getting all pissy about something means that it's something worth checking out.  After all, he's such a media whore that he'll only "speak up" about shit that will get him national publicity.

JPH!P :heart:'s Fushigidane, ChrNo, Jab & marimari. Always.

Word. Al Sharpton doesn't understand satire. What ifs. Some people just take things too damn seriously.

I'm glad to find some people enjoy the fine work of Aaron McGruder. I like the show but love the comic even more so. So far my two favorite episodes are "A Huey Freeman Christmas" and "The Return of The King".


Here is a comic from my stash:

For the safe return of A Pimp Named Masa:


Let us pray the Pimp's prayer: Lord, please pray for the soul of this bitch and guide my pimp hand and make it strong Lord, so that she might learn a hoe's place. Amen

The Boondocks Gets Greenlight for Season Two

20 New Episodes of Hit Adult Swim Series to Debut Beginning in Winter 2006

Adult Swim has given the greenlight for a second season of The Boondocks, the new hit series from creator Aaron McGruder, based on his award-winning comic strip of the same name. The network has ordered 20 new episodes of the series, which is produced by McGruder's production company, Rebel Base, in association with Sony Pictures Television.

Called “brilliantly funny” and “a water cooler series that lives up to the hype,” the series made its premiere on Sunday, Nov. 6, 2005. It ranked as the best series premiere in Adult Swim history, and has consistently ranked among the top programs on basic cable each week among young adult viewers. This month, The Boondocks was nominated for an NAACP Image Award for Outstanding Comedy Series.

New episodes are expected on Adult Swim in late 2006. Ten episodes of the initial 15-episode order have already aired this season.

“Thank God for The Boondocks and Aaron McGruder,” said Mike Lazzo, Cartoon Network’s senior vice president, programming and production, responsible for Adult Swim.

“Adult Swim’s passion for this show has been evident from day one, and we’re thrilled to be on this journey together. Aaron has created a group of amazing characters that tell entertaining and thought provoking stories, and we are so grateful to have found the perfect home for them,” said Zack Van Amburg, Co-President, Programming & Production for Sony Pictures Television.

In The Boondocks, when Robert “Granddad” Freeman becomes legal guardian of his rambunctious grandkids, he moves from the south side of Chicago to the quiet and safety of “The Boondocks” (in this case, suburban Woodcrest), hoping that he can ignore them altogether and enjoy the fourth quarter of his life in peace. But Huey, a 10-year-old left wing revolutionary, is determined not to enjoy the affluence of suburbia. This attitude is seconded by his 8-year-old brother, Riley, a proud product of contemporary rap culture. Although they torture each other and provoke the neighborhood, they are no match for Granddad, who is eccentric even by “crazy-ass-old-black-man” standards.

Aaron McGruder is creator and executive producer of The Boondocks. The series is produced by Rebel Base in association with Sony Pictures Television. Reginald Hudlin is also an executive producer on the series.

Synopsis for the final three episodes of the first season

"Wingmen"
When Granddad’s oldest friend dies, the Freemans go back home and both Granddad and Huey have to learn to put the past behind them.

"The Block is Hot" (Possible Season Finale)
Jazmine learns the true meaning of "capitalism" when she sells her lemonade stand to corporate tycoon Ed Wuncler.

"The Passion of Ruckus"
While Ruckus spreads the word of White Jesus to get into White Heaven, Huey tries desperately to save his friend from death row.
