Not often do cartoons school grown-ups on sensitive issues such as institutionalized racism and Uncle Tom tendencies. Illustrator Aaron McGruder created his infamous cartoon strip, "The Boondocks," giving news readers, and ultimately television viewers, a daily dose of reality through the frank voices of two young, Black brothers: Huey and Riley Freeman, both voiced by actress Regina King. In 2010, the final episode of "The Boondocks" aired on Cartoon Network's Adult Swim line-up, leaving fans to wonder if another season would ever be done.
Well, the wait is now officially over. Yesterday, a graphic promoting the fourth season of "The Boondocks" was released on the Adult Swim website. New dates have been announced, and fans can now breathe a bit easier knowing that the realest cartoon to have aired on television will be back. King has also hinted at a possible "Boondocks" film in past interviews. However, that has yet to be confirmed.
