The Boondocks returned to the airwaves with the first episode of their highly anticipated 4th season last night (April 21, 2014).
The original cast of characters are back including Regina King, the voice of young brothers Huey and Riley, and John Witherspoon, who plays their grandfather. You may also recognize the voice of Atlanta based rapper Killer Mike during the show and there’s even an appearance by Uncle Ruckus!
The episode, entitled, “Pretty Boy Flizzy,’ spoofs embattled R&B singer Chris Brown and his on-going legal issues and also includes a take on the now infamous beating of Brown’s ex-girlfriend Rihanna, who they refer as ‘Christianna’ in the flick.
Similar to McGruder’s famous takes of R. Kelly’s sex trial and Tyler Perry gay rumors in two of the show’s most popular episodes (“The Trial of R. Kelly” and “Pause”), “Pretty Boy Flizzy” is meant to create controversy and conversation.
Also, fans of the Adult Swim animated series finally get to see how the show fares without it’s creator, Aaron McGruder. who issued a statement recently about his decision to walk away from his creation.
