The Boondocks (Seasons 1-3)
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.
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
- It cleverly satirizes real life events, stereotypes, politics, social issues, and pop culture that makes the show both entertaining and relatable.
- Great animation that matches the comic book style.
- Awesome characters like Huey, Riley, Grandad, Tom Dubois and Uncle Ruckus.
- A plethora of funny and compelling side characters.
- Cool voice-acting.
- It delivers important life lessons that the world is a tough place and that nobody is perfect.
- Amazing and well-choregraphed action sequences.
- A lot of Hilarious scenes!
- 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!
- Michael Caesar, a character from the original comic strip, never appeared on the show.
- 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.
- 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.
