    Synopsis


    Season one of Aaron McGruder's oft-controversial social satire follows the animated adventures of two preadolescent African-American brothers trying to adjust to life in a Maryland suburb after moving from Chicago's inner city. Budding activist Huey Freeman and his mischievous younger brother, Riley, discover they don't meet eye to eye with many of their new neighbors and classmates. Meanwhile, their cantankerous grandfather and new guardian, Robert Jebediah Freeman, would rather lead a peaceful existence than take on the role of parent once again. The series, based on the comic strip of the same name, garnered a Peabody its inaugural season for an episode about Martin Luther King Jr. ("The Return of the King"). Other episode highlights include a plot to kidnap Oprah Winfrey headed up by Riley and a media-hyped fight between Robert and an old blind man. The regular voice cast features Regina King, John Witherspoon, and Cedric Yarbrough. Season one guest voices include Ed Asner, Adam West, Quincy Jones, Charlie Murphy, and Mike Epps. ~ Mary Kate Weber

      Got this DVD for $10. Can't beat that price for a new DVD set with free shipping. Anyway The show is crazy funny. I can relate to it completely. every time I watch it I bust out laughing. what can I say, its not for the liberal serious type. Its for the I got off of work and tired of being serious, but need a good laugh type and no this is not for kids. This cartoon is based on the comic strip and is for mature audiences only, so parental advisory is advised if you let your kids watch this. you might not like what they may hear.

      Simply The Best

      Aaron McGruder has definitely hit a home run with the Boondocks series. This is, simply put, the best show on television. I am eagerly anticipating the upcoming season. The satire in this series is absolutely brilliant, and the characters are voiced perfectly. I love the "Friday" references that granddad occasionally makes. My favorite character is Huey, although Uncle Ruckus makes me laugh until I can't breathe. Do yourself a favor and buy this immediately. While you're at it, pick up season two as well.

      This is one of the funniest, wittiest, most entertaining satires ever.It handles race and racial tension better than any show since All in the Family. The characters are all very well created and voiced to perfection.If you like a good think and a laugh, you'll love it.

      I didn't like this series at first, but after watching and studying the episodes I loved it. The stories tie in with the current situations of the African American communities. I just wished more people would give it a chance like I did; after sometime you will love it too!!!

      Even better than the original script. Huey, Riley, Grandad and that rapscallion Uncle Ruckus make this show a fun ride. Having the entire season at one's finger tips really helps when you want to watch just one more episode.
