Boondocks is getting a "modern era" reboot.>There has been ripe speculation for some time that a reboot of The Boondocks was on the way. These rumors were amplified by claims from star John Witherspoon in a recent interview.>Now, it has been officially announced that the show will come back with series creator Aaron McGruder. According to the show's home studio, Sony, it will be “a complete re-imagining” of the show “for the modern era." The news was announced by Sony at the Annecy International Animated Film Festival.https://shadowandact.com/the-boondocks-reboot-announced-aaron-mcgruder
>>108126828uh oh. i don't think even mcgruder could save this.
Why would a "reboot" be necessary? It's not like the show had an overreaching narrative.
>>108127897They are probably going to add Huey’s friend from the comic strip into the cast.
I can't believe black kino is back on the menu. Too bad we didn't get anymore more Black Jesus, though. Wasn't the last season finished?
>>108126828>show will come back with series creator Aaron McGruder.All I needed to hear
>>108126828>>108126852It's odd that they're still bothering with a contemporary take on this when the main problem was that McGruder couldn't had it like he did in the comic in two ways, first with TV executives, and the second issue was time. The "dated" feeling of a comic was less since McGruder could just read about shit, and draw it, but the productions time for shows just kills that buffer.
>>108126976Absolute based, redpilled, and blessed
>>108127897>>108129492A reboot is necessary because contemporary America has changed over the past few years. McGruder wants to juxtapose Trump Era America's anxiety with the suburbs becoming more urban due to blacks and hispanics moving out of the cities to places like Long Island, PA, NC, SC, and so on.
>>108126828Except now he can add in characters like a middle aged white lady, or really nerdy bearded white guy named Doug that hates all white people and complains about the damn white people over and over again. Pissing off Ruckuss.
>>108131534>Ruckus gets a rival>A scathing critique of self-flagellating white people
>>108131534>Huey tries to organize a freedom rally to discuss African American rights in America today and how they can overcome the system that is built against them>Only pic related shows ups for it>They start calling Huey racist for not including more LBGT representation and not also raising awareness for Latinx in America too>Huey is kicked out of the group due to pics of him eating at a Taco Bell with Riley and his grandfather spread on twitter, causing everyone to shout how he was culturally appropriating proud Latin culture by eating there>Huey is replaced by a white guy that identifies as an African American who demands reparations>Episode ends with Huey leaving all social media
>>108126828Ah yes I can't wait for the inevitable CalArts/Family Guy Ripoff art style
>>108126828Boondocks was made for a very specific point in time, and I doubt it will be able to adapt.
>>108131622Huey is supposed to be an over the top parody of black supremacists. The cartoons toned down the political views and wrote him more like Naota from FLCL: a kid who acts like an adult to be mature, but is still too young.
>>108131676Boondocks is simply too savage for it's own good.
>>108131676It also helped that it came out in 2005, a time when white suburban normies were imitating all things pop ghetto culture was at an all time high. Lots of gold chains, gold teeth, spinning rims by suburban upper middle class white people was everywhere. and the entertainment industry was really promoting pop ghetto culture as a major mainstream thing.
>>108131622This is already kino, but how can we fit uncle Ruckus in here?
>>108131603I hope you weren't being ironic because that's a great idea
>>108131754Rap Music in 2005 had traded it's gangster elements in favor of being club music or high end fashion.
>>108131676>Boondocks was made for a very specific point in timeYou are incredibly naive to think the things that were talked about the show 10 years ago aren't relevant now.
>>108131826>traded it's gangsterhttp://its-not-its.info/
>>108131622why the fuck do they all make the same facial expression?
>It's a grandad discovers social media episode
>>108131783YouTube videos spread of the rally, having Ruckus narrate over the footage on how the monkeys are too lazy to even show up to a rally about them. The whites chimp out and make a bunch of videos calling Ruckus out. He makes another and gives them a place and time. The whites are ready to lynch the faceless man in the video then find themselves at a standstill when they realize Ruckus' complexion.
>>108131896Please make this happen
>>108131534>>108131622Sometimes /co/ has better ideas than what is actually shat out, almost like /tg/.
Hey guys, remember when the the little niglet with the Afro said that Jesus was black? Remember how he was basically an author avatar for the creator's own thoughts on black people?
>>108131622Jesus, anon. That's the perfect episode one.Aaron, is that you?
>>108131622>>108131783rucks was at first 100% against all of it and made one man countrprotests. By the end of the episode he is the only one left that will still talk to Huey.
fo you think theres a chance for Black Dynamite now?
>>108127007based white man
>>108126828this goes against everything boondocks was. gross.
>huey supports trump because he wants the system to crash and burn>nobody cares for the why>real world 'pop culture pundits' loses their minds
>>108131949Wasnt he basically just told to shut up in later seasons?>>108129188Season 4 I heard was partly done by Aaron. Its best to still be kind of skeptical. That said I'd be down for more comics.
>>108132074>Its best to still be kindhttp://its-not-its.info/
>>108126828Riley should have a react channel, Gramps should have an instagram account, and Huey should have a podcast.
>>108131795its not an idea, its fucking IRL which is the sad part.
It'd be interesting if Riley grows up to be like Tom Dubois, I mean Cindy McPhearson is basically Sarah
>>108132064I don't think Huey would support Trump, so much as mock his detractors for being self-righteous reactionaries who only care about the end result of a system that has been cannibalizing itself for almost as long as it's been implemented. Like "where was this righteous fury when Bush stole the 2000 election, or when Wall Street sold out America"?
>>108132417Huey probably would have stroked out during the 2016 election considering how the Democrat party treated Bernie before putting Hillary on the docket
>>108126828Yeah, that's pretty good. But there is still one question that wasn't answered when the show ended and needs a final answerWas it rape?
>>108132962Considering it's Tom's wife...no.
>>108131622>>108131841>why the fuck do they all make the same facial expression?That isn't true at all. If you notice the majority of them display the upwards and out classic basedboi facial position, the kind that makes their expression 'pop' Where as others that are a little more spicy and risque tend to go for that Dreamworks look of basedboi face. And finally in this collaboration of expressions we can even see the "I'm a nice guy" tilt of the brows into obtuse angles as shown by the two men in the top right corner.
>>108131238so couldnt they do a time jump? or an episode exploring the changes?
>>108132962Technically Tom wasn't in control of his body when she fucked him so yes. Sarah raped him.
>>108126828Just because mcgruder is involved doesn't mean it will be good. Black Jesus was an unfunny train wreck. Are any other veteran staff working on it?
>>108131870they already did that with myspace
>>108133947>Hating on Black JesusFucking what?
>>108126828I'm honestly worried. Boondocks was a show kinda tailored for the mid-2000s. When you could get away with saying more stuff and the world wasn't so diametrically opposed. Now he'll be stuck between a rock and a hard place cuz the lefties will be up in arms for any sort of criticism for colored people or commentary that points out african americans long lived homophobia, and the right will probably get all pissed if he dares to insinuate that he hates the president or think white man bad, which are two things the show has always said. Damned if you do damned if you don't.
>>108134785he should just go all-in and piss everyone off
>>108134785>When you could get away with saying more stuff and the world wasn't so diametrically opposedYou mean when more people were on one side more so than the otherPeople have been saying the stuff they are saying now for a long time, you've just never paid attention to them before nowReally, what about the OG boondocks cartoon wouldn't fit in 2019?Black people act stupid sometimes, sometimes we make it, but there's still plenty left to fight for?
>>108134785Weren't people up in arms about it when it originally aired?
/co/ will disown the show the second it says anything bad about Trump. Screencap this.
>>108135156mostly because it used nigga frequently
>>108135207/co/ is mostly tumblr refugees
>>108131949He was very transparently an author mouthpiece, as was the whole series. That didn't make it bad.
>>108131953Yes. He's testing the waters here. Thanks for the feedback.
>>108131603... I'd unironically enjoy this. The possibilities for hilarious dialogue are limitless.
>>108135207i don't care if they'd do that per se. the problem is that it's hard to do that in a way that isn't hackneyed like what a lot of things do. it's like making bush jokes in 2007 but cranked up to 11 because of social media time preference.
>>108131534>Someone points out that he's white as fuck.>He responds that he has "super vitiligo", kinda like what poor Michael Jackson had except "way worse".
>>108127897It wasn't story driven per say, but there were a lot of themes and character arcs that carried over from each season. Also S4 was such an insult to the series that I can't blame them for wanting to reboot it. I'd rather it just stay dead altogether tbqh.
>>108131987>Uh-huh?! See! I told you!>There ain't nothin' you monkeys won't take for granted. Voting. Civil Rights. The gracious white man giving you darkies a helpin' hand!>Some system you're fighting. Niggers get a freebie and you manage to fuck it up, just like all of the white man's gifts.>Oh sure. It broke my heart at foist, but I guess a white man pretending to be a coon is better than a real coon any day of the week.
>>108127007holy shit, this reboot could actually be great
>>108134785that's when you reach the point that you say "fuck it" and let it all out
>>108131238>suburbs becoming more urbanSo the show is unironically going to be more niggerish instead of making parodies poking fun at them
>>108132486Best of luck. Focus on the kids, cut down on grandad.
>>108135722That would be too perfect. Now it's not going to happen.>>108136313Or poking fun at how a caricature of "black culture" has become so widely accepted and adapted by suburbanites.
>>108136547>black cultureJust the mention of such a phrase leaves a bad taste in my mouth considering what it's done to modern culture today, and the kids are most affected by it
>>108127007Thanks Uncle Ruckus.
>>108135156The biggest controversies I remember the show having was regarding the BET and the Tyler Perry episodes. Apparently Tyler Perry was so assblasted by the show's depiction of him, he got the episode pulled off of tv.
>>108126828>starring Uncle Ruckus as TrumpI can't wait for le racist confederate man to praise Trump as his fuhrer despite the fact that Trump has literally dated black women in the past and we all know how much Ruckus hates shit like that. I also look forward to Trump being drawn as Ed Wuncler but wearing a blonde wig, comically orange and choking down a mountain of cheeseburgers with grease and drool and chunks of meat dribbling down his chin while he screams at Jared to do everything. Because what would Boondocks be without such a "comical" portrayal?
> announced by Sonyso it won’t be on [as]?
>>108137112Unclear>>108136894>have never been able to watch the BET one>only know it exists because my black fren linked some of the clips to me once
>>108136894Was that the episode where Grandad opens a Soul Food joint, or the one with MLK?
>>108126828Only bad can come from this
>>108131622/co/ is almost as bad as reddit coming up with original material.
>>108137316You are replying to one of /co/'s many tripfags
>>108131949Remember episode 1 where Huey, the author mouthpiece, said a bunch of controversial things to suburban white people, but they literally didn't understand any of it? Yeah, a lot of people are those white people.
First look at Huey's new designhttps://www.instagram.com/p/ByoXrAyHPlq/?utm_source=ig_embed
There's going to be an episode about the concentration camps full of children and you still won't care about it because you prefer the comfort of your Republican lies to facing the truth and doing the right thing.
>>108133180> what is marital rape?
>>108138053>There's going to be an episode about the concentration camps full of childrenThey already did that, it was the episode in the Freedomland episode, which was a slavery theme park. Imagine how much butthurt that episode would generate now, when people would whine that it's SJW propaganda against the president's immigration policies.
Will A Pimp Named Slickback Return?
>>108138030they going for a more anime look? huey looks different.
I'm not retarded for thinking the comics were insufferable right
>>108138224the comic was hit or miss
>>108132962I forgot this awful thing ever happened
>>108138131Thats completely the opposite. Like chimps do that as a form of aggression.
This is Huey's new design. Say something nice about it.
>>108138385>black NarutoAtleast Huey's embracing his ninja self some more.
>Oh great, it's another "White People On /co/ Who Don't Know What The Fuck They're Talking About" Episode
>>108131622This is bad and you should feel bad
>>108138385that's not gonna be it
>>108131622Okay. If this isn't an episode I'll be severely disappointed.
Our Cartoon President has fast turnaround. It went from manly flash animation to slightly less jankey full on television show animation. Fast turnaround now. Trump news goes directly into the show in about 6 months
>>108139304Just read one of your conservacuck echochamber webcomics, it'd be the exact same thing.
>>108136796"HE'S MAKING AMERICA GREAT AGAIN, AND ALL YOU DO IS COMPLAIN!"
>>108138385>Huey is moe nowJesus Christ are they rebooting the rest of the Boondocks in this moe anime style now?
>>108126828So... basically the first show hit too clowe to home and was too redlilled on the issues in the black community so we have to undo that by making a version that spends each episode bashing Trump?
>>108139490"Uncle Ruckus, when was america even great?"
>>108128077I forgot about that great show. Adult swim seemed to have had alot of genuinely good black shows, unlike anywhere else devoted to such a thing.
>>108131841The truth is that youtube's guidelines to getting a lot of views say "put a big wacky reaction face in your thumbnail" and people that that want to meme decided it meant something more.
>>108126828Too bad we won't be able to discuss it here.
>>108135349Someone has got to take the site back from the chuds.
by seung kim
>>108131783Ruckus gets super pissed off at the white guy demeaning reparations, and calls him out for pretending to be another race than he actually is.The irony is completely lost on him
>>108139427It's common knowledge that monkeys only smile to show off their teeth
>>108136171I can hear him perfectly.I can see the despair in Huey's face.
>>108140799>despair*disappointment. Huey's too disillusioned at this point to be anything else
>>108140579It was funny before because it was a different time. Now we have extreme left and extreme right. So much that that white people now take on white guilt and on the other side we got extreme racist that think white genicide is a thing and they must fight for the future of their species.
>>108138131Top left is just normal smiling.
>>108132064There were some recent comics where huey was just reiterating CNN talking points about Trumphis views on the president will be very mainstream
>>108126964>>108126976>>108127007Fuck you, Ruckus. That was fantastic.
>>108139275Yes it is
>>108140338When was this posted?
>>108138385>>108140338So I guess the reboot will draw inspiration from the video game Aaron wanted to do?
>>108136894>BETi don't even know what it is beyond a general description of lowest of the low black-geared television but that shit was hilariousDeborah Leevil is a stroke of genius given form
>>108141740Fucking please. McGruder's hate for BET is nothing but salt after getting his show rejected. Black people don't watch political cartoons. Big fucking deal.
https://junkiemonkeys.com/aaron-mcgruder-wants-to-bring-back-the-boondocks-as-a-video-game/https://www.instagram.com/p/BtgaeCpBFxx/?utm_source=ig_embed&ig_mid=XPNJGwABAAFxcRdbXuOEv2fPYVokReminder that the premise for the Boondocks reboot has been set in stone for awhile. Even with Ruckus becoming a government figure ruling Woodcrest.
>>108141783So will Uncle Ruckus just be in charge of the whole Woodcrest?
>>108140338>Huey, Riley, Robert and Sarah look ready for war>Tom and Sarah looking like bitches Nothing changes.
I'm guessing the "reboot" idea is just to wipe season 4 from existence, I'm fine with that
>>108140019this combined with, "look at how quirky i am making this dumb facial expression."
>>108141952Pretty much. Also to help McGruder jack off to his video game idea.
>>108136609Because white culture has been so illustrious these past couples years, right?
>>108141791>>108139905wouldn't he prefer the pre-slavery period, when the soil was untouched by the porch monkeys?
>>108127007God bless Uncle Ruckus. I hope he finds a cure for that damn re-vitiligo affliction.
>>108126828how many episodes till it apologizes for the "what if MLK came back today" episode of the original?
I noticed his new strips are particularly cute- I wonder if the show will be cuter too...
>>108131622FuckAll of /pol/ and /tv/ are going to do the same "Woe is me, all white people are being eradicated!" song and dance with each episode of this show now too
>>108131622that actually sounds like a really good episode
>>108134902^this is the best possible outcome
>>108126828If mcgurder is on board it might not be crapBut it could also be full of black whining an black victimhood
>>108140338i'm sure this is just concept/fanart from the show's director, but I have high hopes if he comes back.
>>108144742I think McGruder has said he'd be leaving that kind of thing in the old Boondocks or something.
>>108144782Nigga it's literally the same design as the official reboot design that got released for Huey. He's most certainly back.
>>108142793McGruder has been watching moe shit and is going to inject it in his show. We are out of the Cowboy Bebop days.
>>108145675Huey-kun. Can you go fetch Riley-kun?
>>108142338it was until nigger culture became popular in media
>>108126828As long as the show takes shots on all sides then it will be fine.
