Action . Comedy . Action & Adventure . Animation

When Riley's affinity for grafitti goes too far, Grandad sends him to an art teacher that actually encourages him to do grafitti, only painting murals instead. Meanwhile, Huey discovers a black woman died from watching too much black TV, and decides to watch black TV for 2 weeks to see if that was the cause.

    If you love a big, seriously politically incorrect, brilliantly funny show that delivers belly laughs of the "South Park" quantity, then this one's for you.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Tim Goodman

    Right out of the gate, "The Boondocks" is a water-cooler series that lives up to the hype. It is funny, fearless and continues the vibe of the strip.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Matt Roush

    Animation has rarely felt so explosively, hilariously defiant.

    TV Guide Magazine Full Review
  • Aaron Barnhart

    An out-of-the-gate triumph.

    Kansas City Star Full Review
  • Melanie McFarland

    As hilariously scalding onscreen as it is on the daily comics pages.

    Seattle Post-Intelligencer Full Review
  • Mike McDaniel

    The Boondocks is can't-miss TV, as vicious, funny and relevant as McGruder's comic strip.

    Houston Chronicle Full Review
  • Lee Siegel

    I can't think of another recent work of art, popular or serious, that's as caustic about race as this wild little cartoon.

    The New Republic Full Review
  • Barry Garron

    Outrageous at times, sentimental at other times, "The Boondocks" brings a unique and satiric vision to animation.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Alessandra Stanley

    There are very few series for young adults that deal with race as brazenly and defiantly as "The Boondocks."

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Matthew Gilbert

    "The Boondocks" takes on racism the way ''All in the Family" did, by sending up ignorance and extremism rather than moralizing about them.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • David Hinckley

    "The Boondocks," with all its knowingly controversial observations and language, is a sort of animated equivalent of "All in the Family." It'll make you think, and maybe even wince - but at the same time, it makes you smile.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Doug Elfman

    "Boondocks" is a charming, amusing and good-looking cartoon. What's more, it establishes fertile, identifiable characters and story lines.

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • Mike Duffy

    Like the frequently audacious comic strip that gave it life, "The Boondocks" doesn't mess around.

    Detroit Free Press Full Review
  • Heather Havrilesky

    After two episodes, "The Boondocks" shows promise, defies categorization and, basically, could either evolve into a great show or become repetitive really fast.

    Salon Full Review
  • Hal Boedeker

    Deliberate pacing muffles the comedy's energy. Stylish animation clashes with coarse language and situations. Would arty photography help a Mel Brooks movie? Not one with a wobbly script.

    Orlando Sentinel Full Review
  • Rob Owen

    Occasionally funny.

    Pittsburgh Post-Gazette Full Review
  • Robert Abele

    The timing of a TV show is a different animal from the punchy joys of an in-and-out three-panel strip, and there’s a clunkiness to the pacing of this new Boondocks incarnation.

    L.A. Weekly Full Review
  • Gillian Flynn

    Despite its wish to be incendiary, Boondocks seems hesitant. [11 Nov 2005, p.60]

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Maureen Ryan

    Given the first episode's promise, it's too bad the second outing of "The Boondocks" is a complete waste of time.

    Chicago Tribune Full Review
  • Brian Lowry

    Aaron McGruder's anger comes through loud and clear in this adaptation of his comicstrip into an Adult Swim animated series, but the dearth of humor reflects another awkward and disappointing transition from three-panel glory to TV series.

    Variety Full Review
  • Nancy Franklin

    There is not a single fresh moment in the three episodes that have run so far; it turns out you can be controversial without being the least bit interesting.
