Product Description

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!

Amazon.com

Based on cartoonist Aaron McGruder's politically charged daily comic strip, The Boondocks brings no-holds-barred social commentary and comedy to the Cartoon Network's Adult Swim programming, and now, all 15 episodes of the 2005-2006 debut season are available in an uncut and uncensored format in this three-disc set. As with McGruder's strip, the animated version of The Boondocks uses a fish-out-of-water format--10-year-old revolutionary-in-training Huey Freeman (voiced by Regina King), his 8-year-old brother Riley (also King), and their salty Granddad (John Witherspoon) relocate to an upscale suburban neighborhood--to take aim at all manner of cultural issues in both the black and white communities. Targets sighted in these episodes include singer R. Kelly's bedroom shenanigans ("The Trial of R. Kelly"); gangsta rap ("The Story of Gangstalicious," which includes a wicked spoof of the documentary Tupac: Resurrection); Oprah Winfrey (who is almost kidnapped by Riley in "Let's Nab Oprah"); and Martin Luther King, who revives from a coma to be branded a terrorist in "Return of the King," which generated plenty of heat from the Rev. Al Sharpton upon its broadcast. All of the above topics are handled in a decidedly less-than-respectful and occasionally offensive manner, though exactly who will find The Boondocks scandalous and who will find its approach fearless and on the money will depend on the viewer. But there's no arguing that the show is frequently as funny as McGruder's comic. Extras include audio and video commentary by McGruder and the production staff (as well as commentaries by the character Uncle Ruckus, Granddad's thoroughly unhinged friend whose fixation on a White Jesus is tackled in the season closer, "The Passion of Ruckus"), as well as deleted scenes, some unaired Adult Swim promo spots, and a behind-the-scenes featurette that addresses the show's conception and production. --Paul Gaita
