Based on the original comic strip Boondocks, Two young brothers (Huey and Riley) move away from their birth city to live with their irascible grandfather out in the suburbs. With one brother being socially and politically motivated and the younger brother a stereotypical black youth who likes rap music and culture etc Biting socio-political commentary ensues when they meet a whole cast of crazy exaggerated characters set in a mainly white middle upper class neighbourhood.
Based on the comic strip, Huey and Riley move away from the city and out to the suburbs with their irascible grandfather. Biting socio-political commentary ensues.
This show is "black" comedy in multiple senses of the term. Here is a memorable example. Grandad opens a restaurant featuring a menu high in fat, pork, sugar, and serving sizes. Huey comments that the food is "destructive" to those that eat it. Grandad asks him, "What's wrong with you boy, this is your culture." To which Huey responds, "well then the culture's destructive!" Now that's a point worthy of consideration coming out of the mouth of a small child in a cartoon. Personally, I think its worth watching several hours of this show just for the reward of being challenged to think about that one line, but others will not agree. My wife hates the show because, in her opinion "its simply not funny." I must agree, that the writing is bit uneven. Uncle Ruckus's trip to "white heaven" and King's speech at his political rally are absolutely priceless, while the entire episode "Let's Nab Ophrah" was a complete waste of time when Samuel L. Jackson's character wasn't talking. I strongly expect the reviews of this show to be highly polarized - you either love it or hate it. Watch a few episodes and make up your own mind.
The creator of the show means well, this was supposed to be ignorance explored and exposed as the main character Huey comes in as the clean up man to drop some knowledge and shed intelligent light. The 3 mins of knowledge and intelligence brought to us by Huey is covered up by 22 minuets of ignorant stereotypes and the over abundant use of the word n*gga by Riley, what many ignorant people will see as typical black youth. The problem is the show is on a station marketed to suburbanite white teens and pre teens (i do not care if you call it "adult swim") with short attention spans, look at the "cretive" editing for commercials and tell me what is being taken away from this show, the message NO, Riley being stereotypical and using the word n*gga 30 times a show while backing up EVERY stereotype in the book YES! It should not have been on anything but an adult oriented premium cable channel such as HBO in the same time slot, but that my friend would not have gotten as many weak minds and thus money for the network owners. As Huey would say, OPEN YOUR EYES AND PEEP THE AGENDA. This is a black-sploitation, all be it a higher quality than normal one.

&quot;The Boondocks Theme&quot; by <a href="/name/nm2182707/">Asheru</a>. <a href="/name/nm1412298/">Aaron McGruder</a> decided to discontinue the daily comic strip in order to focus on the show. McGruder said in an interview: &quot;I wanted to hang on to both, but ultimately I made the decision that the show could not be sacrificed. Once I decided that, it was an easy decision, even if it cost me. I didn&#39;t want to do the strip badly and the show badly.&quot; He has not ruled out reviving the strip once the show has run its course.<br/><br/>Source:http://www.latimes.com/entertainment/news/tv/la-ca-boondocks30sep30,1,4034796.story?coll=la-entnews-tv Tom&#39;s name appears to be a reference to the tragic African-American slave in <a href="/name/nm0832952/">Harriet Beecher Stowe</a>&#39;s anti-slavery novel &quot;Uncle Tom&#39;s Cabin&quot; (1853). Due to his spiritual beliefs, Uncle Tom was very loyal to his masters despite suffering horrible abuse. Although the novel portrayed African-Americans in a positive light and was partly responsible for the ending of American slavery, subsequent stage and film adaptations changed Uncle Tom into a weak-minded, docile, happy slave. This stereotype endured through the 20th century. The name &quot;Uncle Tom&quot; became an insult to African-Americans who are accused of being subservient to Whites. However, Tom&#39;s last name, Dubois, comes from W.E.B. Dubois, a black philosopher and one of the founders of the NAACP; Dubois theorized that African Americans would be elevated in the eyes of the rest of society by the &quot;talented tenth,&quot; the ten most intellectually astute percent of all African Americans. Thus, a conflicting dichotomy is created between the character of Tom and the origins of his first and last names.<br/><br/>Uncle Ruckus&#39;s name and appearance appear to be a reference to Uncle Remus, the narrator from <a href="/name/nm0364873/">Joel Chandler Harris</a>&#39;s series of folktales (1880-1905). Remus was a kindly, elderly slave who enjoys telling whimsical, educational stories to White children. Ruckus&#39;s love of White children in &quot;A Huey Freeman Christmas&quot; also is a reference though his hatred of African-Americans is not a characteristic of Remus. Like Uncle Tom, Uncle Remus became controversial in the 20th century as many felt the character perpetuated the stereotype of the happy slave. A film adaptation, <a href="/title/tt0038969/">Song of the South (1946)</a> (1946), was very popular at the time but has not been released on home video or DVD in the US. Many consider Ruckus to be a parody of controversial writer <a href="/name/nm0189459/">Stanley Crouch</a> with whom he shares a passing resemblance. Crouch is controversial for his belligerence, his criticism of several African-American intellectuals, and his frequent use of the word &quot;Negro&quot; which is considered derogatory. In episode #14 of the 3rd season, he cries to his estranged father, Mister Ruckus, &quot;I hate you! You the reason why, after I say the name &#39;Ruckus,&#39; I always say, &quot;No relation.&quot; I am adopted! I am adopted!&quot; a5c7b9f00b
