The Boondocks

The Boondocks, the genius comic strip created by Aaron McGruder is finally making its way to the small screen. After being delayed several times (moving networks, and the usual delays that come with a animated program) the cartoon starring Regina King and John Witherspoon will make its debut this Sunday night during the Adult Swim block on the Cartoon Network. The show focuses on two black children and their grandfather living in white suburbia. The Boondocks has been one of my favorite comic strips for years and I’m excited about what kind of controversy this show can stir up. This cartoon won’t be for everyone though. Those that are offended by racial issues, Bush bashing, and common sense need not watch. The offical site (which is still under construction) can be found at: Boondocks.net.
