Product Description

Popular Adult Swim show on Cartoon Network! Based on Aaron McGruder's comic strip which was distributed in 350 newspapers nationwide. Granddad sneaks the boys into the movies to be cheap. Sarah's obsession with Usher after meeting him threatens her relationship with Tom. Riley and Granddad refuse to talk with cops about two local thieves, even after Granddad's car is stolen. Stinkmeaner's spirit possesses Tom and he tries to get revenge on Granddad. Riley joins the basketball team, and the boys fight over who will be boss while Granddad's on vacation.

Fans of Aaron MacGruder's The Boondocks (based on his popular daily comic strip) should take note that all 15 episodes of the fearless animated series are included on this second-season boxed set. While complete seasons should be a given for the DVD presentation of most television series, most programs didn't undergo the same level of scrutiny and negative press as The Boondocks, which saw two of its second season episodes pulled from its network run over allegedly offensive statements about the cable channel BET and its senior executives (including filmmaker Reginald Hudlin, who is also credited as executive producer on The Boondocks). Both episodes--"The Hunger Strike" (which sees Boondocks hero Huey Freeman protest BET's negative programming) and "The Uncle Ruckus Show" (BET airs a reality series built around the self-loathing title character) – are presented here in their entirety, and include fairly straightforward commentary by MacGruder and producers Rodney Barnes and Carl Jones which, while never going so far as to point fingers at individuals who may have caused the episodes to be banned, does provide a succinct history of the troubles they incurred for the show. It should also be noted that while both episodes are solid and ruthless pieces of satire, they're not the high points of the season--episodes that strike a stronger balance between humor and social commentary include "… Or Die Trying" (Granddad, Huey, Riley and Jazmine sneak into a screening of Soul Plane 2: The Blackjacking! and wrangle with Uncle Ruckus), "Invasion of the Katrinians" (Granddad learns to regret taking in his displaced New Orleans relative Jericho, voiced by Cedric the Entertainer), and "The Story of Catcher Freeman" (a Rashomon-like take on the history of the Freeman's saintly ancestor). These and others come closest to achieving the level of quality of "The Return of the King," the best episode of The Boondocks' first year, and do much to suggest that the show will continue to hit high-water marks in subsequent seasons.

In addition to the previously mentioned commentaries, MacGruder, Barnes and Jones are heard on two other episodes ("Stinkmeaner Strikes Back" and "The Story of Gangstalicious, Part 2"), and MacGruder is seen in video introductions for the banned episodes, as well as a making-of featurette which profiles the behind-the-scenes elements of the show in detail. "Trouble in Woodcrest" is a light-hearted look at a supposed feud between voice talent Cedric Yarbrough and Gary Anthony Williams, while "What N****s?" pokes fun at criticism of the show's use of the epithet by compiling footage of the voice-over artists repeating it in recording sessions. Five-minute interviews with the main cast and minisodes of "Spider-Man" and "Married… With Children" bring the extras to a close. -- Paul Gaita

This is easily one of the smartest and funniest shows on television... animated or otherwise! It's a shame that Sony has yet to greenlight season 3 (possibly due to the fact that the two episodes that were banned from airing stateside appear on this set and Sony might be taking a wait and see attitude to see what BET will do in response since it was BET's threat to sue that got the episodes banned in the first place). If you are easily offended by any sort of vulgar language or racial humor and satire, this show is NOT for you! However, if you enjoy great animation coupled with intelligent writing, non-stop laughs and great underlying messages, BUY THIS SET NOW AND DEMAND SONY GREENLIGHT SEASON 3!!!

As for BET... if BET execs are so concerned with how they're portrayed in these episodes, perhaps they should consider improving the quality of their programs rather than broadcasting... whatever it is they continue to pass off as entertainment. Sorry... I'll get off my soapbox now.

I found info that this dvd will be uncensored and uncut just like the first season. And not only that, but it's the complete second season, all 15 episodes including the 2 that never aired in the US. So no censorship. It will also contain 4 featurettes, 2 'minisodes', and audio commentaries on selected episodes picked by Aaron McGruder. Enjoy.

So what do I think about "The Boondocks"? It's good. How good? Reeeeaaaal good. What do I like about it specifically? Everything. the first season knocked me upside my head and made me laugh until I begged it to stop. Season two is a step down, but still has the show going strong and laying the social satire, cutting parody, and excessive vulgarity nice and thick while battling the evil forces trying to make the world a stupider place. Aaron McGruder is a superhero. Do not doubt this. Not only did he create a successful and controversial newspaper comic strip that lashed out at nearly every reader who came across it and dared them to say they didn't deserve it, but he created an even less friendly animated version pairing the most crude and vulgar content imaginable with even more in-your-face racial commentary and somehow got it aired on basic cable. Unbelievable. This man has enriched my life and given me hope for a better future. God bless him and Cartoon Network.

10 things I love about the Boondocks season two DVD set:
1) Killer kung-fu wolf b!+ches voiced by the heavenly Aisha Tyler.

2) "Soul Plane" sequel parodies featuring a mumbling 50 Cent as a heroic air marshal.

3) An episode commenting on the baffling "no snitching" culture while simultaneously mocking bluetooth headsets and other useless technology.

4) Katt Williams reprising his role as A Pimp Named Slickback (That is his actual full name. Like A Tribe Called Quest) to act as marriage counselor to an emasculated Tom Dubois. Example: "Has NOT hitting the b!

The Boondocks second season is masterful. The satire is ingenious and the comedy is hilarious. The characters represent different factions of the black community and different people will identify with different characters. Riley is the present hip hop generation and unfortunately you can hear many of his statements coming out of the mouths of grown men. Huey is an intellectual and pro black like the hip hop of the 80s and 90s. Grandapa is the civil rights generation and Uncle Ruckus is the embodiment of the self hating black man. Tom the ultimate integrationist. The Boondocks takes very touchy subjects and with the skillfull use of a cartoon brings them to light. The effeminization (homo thugs) of hip hop is one of the subjects he handles. The banned BET segment says a lot about what this country will allow and what they wont. Whether you think the Boondocks is deep social and political commentary or just a silly funny cartoon is up to you but I highly recommend it

We had to wait a long time for season 2 of Boondocks to air, but once it did,Aaron McGruder did not disappoint. The show was still as hilarious and inspiring as ever.There were indeed two episodes that did not air on television, both were aimed at BET. I've seen both episodes on the web (even though lots of websites such as youtube deleted the episodes shortly after they were posted so many people who look for them now cannot find them). If those two episodes are a part of this set i will definitely be buying it, but if they aren't...well, i'll still definitely be buying it.

"What does BET stand for?"
"Uh, Black Entertainment Television?"
"No you fools, Black EVIL Television! Ha, Ha!"
(from the unaired Hunger Strike episode, so funny!)

If you are easily offended, stop looking at this product now, you will hate it.
For everyone else, I find this show to be an intelligent and funny show. As a whole, I think that season 2 has more laugh out loud hilarious episodes, and less with a major point to them than season 1.
If you like the Boondocks, pick it up. Especially to see the 2 hilarious unaired episodes.
