The Boondocks is an American adult animated sitcom on Cartoon Network's late-night programming block, Adult Swim. Created by Aaron McGruder, based upon his comic strip of the same name.

Summary

The show centers around a dysfunctional black family, the Freemans, settling into the fictional, friendly, and overall white suburb of Woodcrest.

Why These Seasons Rock

  1. It cleverly satirizes real life events, stereotypes, politics, social issues, and pop culture that makes the show both entertaining and relatable.
  2. Great animation that matches the comic book style.
  3. Awesome characters like Huey, Riley, Grandad, Tom Dubois and Uncle Ruckus.
  4. A plethora of funny and compelling side characters.
  5. Cool voice-acting.
  6. It delivers important life lessons that the world is a tough place and that nobody is perfect.
  7. Amazing and well-choregraphed action sequences.
  8. A lot of Hilarious scenes!
  9. It well get a 2-season reboot by the new warner streaming service HBO Max in Fall of 2020, the best part, Aaron McGruder is back as a writer and producer for the reboot!

Bad Qualities

  1. Michael Caesar, a character from the original comic strip, never appeared on the show.
  2. Season 4, the final season, was made without McGruder, and as a result, was poorly-received due to Granddad getting too much focus, a poor overarching plot, the elimination of several popular characters such as Gin Rummy, Thugnificent, and Cindy McPhearson, poor plots, the fact the season was aired out-of-order, Uncle Ruckus undergoing a crapload of Flanderization, and the plots being unfunny in general.
  3. Constant use of the n-word, and it's not even censored which makes no sense because other words are censored, but not this one.
