"The Boondocks" is Aaron McGruder's boundary-busting series based on his provocative comic strip. This breakout hit was nominated for a 2006 NAACP Image Award (Outstanding Comedy Series). When Robert "Granddad" Freeman becomes legal guardian to his two grandsons, he moves from the tough south side of Chicago to the upscale neighborhood of Woodcrest (aka "The Boondocks") so he can enjoy his golden years in safety and comfort. But with Huey, a ten-year-old leftist revolutionary, and his eight-year-old misfit brother, Riley, suburbia is about to be shaken up. Race relations, tabloid media, hip-hop culture, Santa Claus - nothing and no one is safe from these boyz 'n tha" hood. Featuring the voices of Regina King ("Ray," "Miss Congeniality 2"), John Witherspoon ("Soul Plane," "Friday After Next"), Mike Epps ("Roll Bounce," "Guess Who"), and Charlie Murphy ("Chappelle's Show"), "The Boondocks: The Complete First Season" presents all fifteen envelope-pushing episodes on three discs, uncut and uncensored with footage never shown on TV.
For those who are new to The Boondocks, it was first a popular comic strip written by Aaron McGruder. The comic strip was later developed into an animated TV Show who's first season is completely contained in this box set. The story follows brothers Huey and Riley Freeman who get moved out of the 'hood" to live with their grandfather Robert Freeman to a predominantly white up-scale neighborhood. Both the series and the comic strip have heavy overtones that satirize Pop-culture, race relations, and American social issues... however, the series maintains a constant element of humor and entertainment. Another element present in the first season is McGruder's love of Japanese animation which he displays in occasional fight scenes and in the imaginations of his characters. All and all, the series is an instant hit and perfectly brings McGruder's comic to life.
This show is not for everyone, but if you have a sense of humor you will love the show and the little jabs it takes a pop culture, the political structure and race relations. Unrated.
