The Boondocks was an Adult American sitcom which featured on the Cartoon Network’s American Swim back in the mid-2000s. The show focuses on a dysfunctional black family, the Freemans, settling into the fictional, friendly and overall white suburb of Woodcrest. In a time where political correctness was still in its infancy, The Boondocks offered a fresh perspective on a mixture of cultures, lifestyles, social classes, stereotypes, viewpoints and racialized identities provides for much of the series’ satire, comedy, and conflict.
Of all the characters on The Boondocks, none are quite as volatile, outspoken and as “in your face” as the not so suave, swearing of Uncle Ruckus. Here are 31 of our favourite Uncle Ruckus moments – some to amuse and others to offend. And don’t worry – we censored the N-word.
