A Boondocks Movie?

Uh oh. We may soon be blessed with a Boondocks feature film and video game according to this report from SOHH. The groundbreaking show, which just received an NAACP Image Award nomination has alot of boughie black folks panties in a bunch over it’s liberal use of ‘the N word’ and it’s edgy subject matter. Although Comedy Central The Cartoon Network has been pretty accommodating as far as content, it’ll be interesting to see what McGruder and the writers come up with when given the opputunity to write for the big screen. I’m thinking something along the lines of a ghetto South Park. I’m especially looking forward to two upcoming episodes mentioned in the SOHH piece:

This Sunday (January 15), in honor of Martin Luther King Day, the show will premiere an episode entitled "The Return of the King." The episode will feature Dr. King in post 9/11 America after coming out of a 32-year coma. The controversial series is also likely to generate attention with its Feb. 25 episode which will be themed around kidnapping plans on Oprah Winfrey. According to McGruder, Winfrey’s visual likeness was edited because Sony Pictures, which distributes the series, wouldn’t authorize its use.

 

McGruder better watch out, or he may be the next person on Oprah’s kufi list right behind Dave and Luda.

    Oh Lawd. Please make it stop.

    I used to like the Boondocks when it was just a comic in the newspaper, but now that it’s on television, people are going crazy. I still like it, just not as much.

    I don’t think I’d pay to see it in the theaters, but I’ll definitely tell my bootleg man to look out for it.

    the naacp can fuck itself. the only thing they advance is stereotypes and give awards to fuckin sell outs.

    A boondocks video game will probably be about as exciting as playing “Nada III”:

    I liked the first three episodes, but not really like’n the new episodes. And its UNNECESSARY to put MLK on the show. I hope theres nothing disrespectful.

    PS: Anybody see the supposed Rosa Parks scene in the R. Kelly episode?

  9. SamuelB Says:

    i would have to agree with thatonegirl. I loved “a right to be hostile”, but now it’s gotten a whole crap load larger, and it’s kind of weird.

  10. e-dubbs Says:

    I’m hooked on this show and if I have a son I can only pray he ends up like Huey.

  11. G Off Says:

    Think of how big South Park was when they did the movie… Boondocks has a loooong way to go to get that kind of buzz. It’s overrated in hip-hop blogs who are thirsty for the next show. People like the strip (myself included) and really want it to succeed on air, but it doesn’t work like it does in three panels. I would be very surprised if this actually made it to the big screen.

  12. HollyHood (future g- unit artist) Says:

    I wouldn’t waste my $$$$$$$$$$ on dat junk!!!

  13. Reninatronix Says:

    Um.
    Aaron is funny. But the comic strip is funnier.

    At the end of the day all we had/have, is our language.

    That n*gga usage is real, fam.

    It ain’t about boo-gie-ness. Its about the fact that the way you use langauge reflects your class and history.

    Aaron is on some Tarantino -ish with his n*gga usage. It’s a distraction.
