Based on the syndicated comic strip of Aaron MacGruder, one of only a few African American cartoonists and arguably the most successful, this animated show appeared on the Cartoon Network's Adult Swim. MacGruder satirizes race relations and contemporary culture in a dry, cynical way that pulls no punches, and generates a great deal of controversy along the way. The show follows protagonist Huey, a 10-year-old revolutionary-in-training, and Riley, his 8-year-old brother and future gangsta. The boys have been moved from their home on Chicago's South Side to the suburban "boondocks" to live with their grandfather, where they get into trouble and comment freely upon the idiosyncracies--to put it mildly--of the white people in whose culture they are now immersed. In season one, Huey and Riley debate R. Kelly, Huey directs "The Adventures of Black Jesus" for the school Christmas play, and Grandad opens up Woodcrest's first soul-food restaurant.
