It’s Goin’ Down – S03/E15 WelcomeEpisode synopsis HBOMax Synopsis: A terror attack near Woodcrest is imminent, and domestic terrorist Huey Freeman is the main suspect. With super-agent Jack Flowers on his tail and Ed and Rummy on the loose, can anyone save the day? Pre Show: Moving Portland Thanks to Drake and Demond Wine School shootings Trauma Mental health Seattle PD Shoplifting Omicron variant Boosters Dr. Oz Celebrities running for office Kathy Griffin Reminder:  https://www.patreon.com/boondockspod Show: Huey quitting = Aaron fired?

Need to see where we are on social media and such?  Come find us!  https://www.theboondockspod.com/links Trivia: This episode parodies the FOX show, 24. Jack Flowers is a parody of Jack Bauer. The Central Terrorist Agency is not only a parody of Counter Terrorist Unit (CTU) from 24, but also a parody of the real-life agency Central Intelligence Agency or more commonly known as the CIA. The ending of Omar Mohammed’s name “Ali Shahid Mohammed” is a possible reference to former ‘A Tribe Called Quest’ member, “Ali Shaheed Muhammad.” When Ruckus stomps Dan the Security Man’s private parts, “Stomp Em In The Nuts” by Thugnificent, another character from the show, is played in the background. Ruckus calls Jack Flowers, “the greatest white man since G.I. Joe”. After the flashbacks of the deaths of Flowers’ girlfriends, the commander claims “What kind of deranged Wile E. Coyote shit is that?”. This is a reference to Wile E. Coyote (from Looney Tunes)’s attempts at destroying The Road Runner, a gag from the famous Warner Bros. shorts. This is apparently Ed and Rummy’s final appearance in the series as they have not appeared in season 4. Many fans consider this episode as the true finale of the series, due to Aaron McGruder leaving after season 3 and the overall bad reception of season 4.

The Fried Chicken Flu – S03/E13 WelcomeEpisode synopsis HBOMax Synopsis: When a fast food promotion crosses with a plague of biblical proportions, society spins out of control faster than you can say white meat only. Will Huey Freeman’s elaborate end-of-the-world survival plan stand up to the ultimate test?

This episode is based on a promotion held by KFC and Oprah Winfrey in May 2009. Winfrey provided coupons for free KFC chicken on her website. The promotion was so popular that the restaurants ran out of chicken causing customers to become irate across the country. Reports of riots at KFC locations spread but KFC later announced that the reports were false. But irate customers did stage protests and made angry statements in TV news reports. The customer saying “How am I supposed to feed my family now?!” is taken from an actual news report. It is implied that Jazmine might be vegetarian; she tells Grandad, “Fried chicken is murder”, when he asks if she wanted any at the beginning of the episode.  Show Music: Intro:  #Makeachange by K.I.R.K. is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-NoDerivatives 4.0 License.

The Lovely Ebony Brown – S03/E11 WelcomeEpisode synopsis HBOMax Synopsis: Granddad finds a Black woman so beautiful and charming not even Ruckus can hate her. Ebony Brown is perfect in every way so is this the end of Granddad’s long, sad, desperate search for a woman? Not if he can help it.

Post Show: Disputed Podcast – https://disputedpod.com Next week: Mr. Medicinal Need to see where we are on social media and such?  Come find us!  https://www.theboondockspod.com/links Trivia: Ebony Brown makes several comments throughout the episode that indicate her character is a vessel of commentary on The Boondocks TV series by an outside viewer, or possibly Aaron McGruder himself. Examples of this are: In the restaurant, Ebony comments directly on Uncle Ruckus’s character as being obviously reprehensible, but telling small grains of truth and therefore is funny and likable. Such a statement is appropriate of a real-life critic or fan, not of an in-series character. Sitting on the bench by the bridge at sunset, Ebony similarly comments on the features of Granddad’s character. She then goes on to say she wants to be a “recurring character”. In Malaysia, Ebony suggests slowing things down, saying there are plenty of episodes left in Granddad’s story. Granddad counters by talking about how he wants to speed things up, saying he’s not sure how many episodes he has left. This is likely a direct reflection by McGruder (voiced through Granddad) saying how he wants to heighten the intensity of the show because he is not sure how much longer the show will last. This notion is further corroborated by Season 3 being Aaron McGruder’s last season.  Show Music: Intro:  #Makeachange by K.I.R.K. is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-NoDerivatives 4.0 License.

A Date With the Booty Warrior – S03/E09 WelcomeEpisode synopsis HBOMax Synopsis: Having conquered his fear of prison rape, Tom volunteers to lead Huey, Riley, and some classmates on a trip to jail as part of a scared stiff program. When a riot breaks out, Tom has to get the kids, and his backside, out of jail.

Post Show: Disputed Podcast – https://disputedpod.com Next week: The Story of Lando Freeman Need to see where we are on social media and such?  Come find us!  https://www.theboondockspod.com/links Trivia: Tom’s fear of being raped in prison is first introduced in the Season 1 episode, “A Date With The Health Inspector”.[1] This episode features Butch Magnus’ third appearance and his second appearance with no dialogue. This is the second time Huey attempts to organize social activism for an organization of strangers. The first was in “…Or Die Trying”. The word “pause” is used several times in the episode, referencing the previous episode “Pause”. The introduction of this episode parodies the Dateline NBC series “To Catch A Predator”, where investigator Chris Hansen confronts chat room predators looking to set up sexual liaisons with minors. Tom marches in a rally against Proposition 8, a 2008 constitutional amendment which initially banned same-sex marriage in California (it was overturned in 2013). He also references Sean Penn playing assassinated San Francisco politician Harvey Milk in the 2008 film Milk. YouTube clips of Fleece “Booty Warrior” Johnson from Lockup and the “Tossed Salad Man” are parodied throughout the episode. Both characters, especially Fleece Johnson, are satirized. Before the Booty Warrior tosses a bar of soap at Tom in the shower room, he says “Tom, come out to play” a reference to the movie The Warriors. William Horton Prison is named after American convicted felon Willie Horton. Director John Landis guest stars in the show. The Attica Prison riot is referenced to during the prison riot by one of the prisoners after he realizes that there was no plan beforehand by stating “I thought this was suppose to be some Attica type shit!” The “Scared Stiff” program parodies and satirizes the “Scared Straight” programs, portrayed in film and television.  Show Music: Intro:  #Makeachange by K.I.R.K. is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-NoDerivatives 4.0 License.

Pause – S03/E08 WelcomeEpisode synopsis HBOMax Synopsis: Granddad is cast as the leading man by mega-superstar of stage and screen, Winston Jerome.

This is commonly followed by the phrase “No homo”. Uncle Ruckus does not appear in this episode. This episode along with The Story of Jimmy Rebel have been banned from Adult Swim and Hulu. The episode returned for an airing on May 29, 2020 on Adult Swim and the episode is on HBO Max.When the episode first aired on Adult Swim, it was rated TV-MA. But when it aired on May 29, 2020, it was re-rated TV-MA-LS. The reason behind this is currently unknown. ControversyThe similarities between Winston Jerome/Ma Dukes and Tyler Perry/Madea as well as the former’s portrayal towards the end of the episode has been directed to Tyler Perry via his website, e-mails and his Facebook and Twitter pages for comment. Fans of Tyler Perry have brought the episode to Mr. Perry’s attention hoping for comment and in some instances, urging him to sue Aaron McGruder and Cartoon Network. Tyler Perry addressed the controversy and at the same time put to rest rumors someone was fired after the episode aired Article at Shadow And Act. In the article he states he has no plans to sue Aaron McGruder and The Boondocks (likely in referral to Turner Broadcasting, which owns Cartoon Network and TBS, which airs 3 of Perry’s shows) though some readers are skeptical as to whether this is really true. Although Tyler Perry is very familiar with McGruder’s work (and obviously vice versa for Aaron with Tyler’s work), those who are skeptical of Tyler’s statement believe it maybe be a placeholder to an actual pending complaint filed against McGruder.The Boondocks creator himself is of course known for controversy. He has a real-life feud with BET, openly criticized George W. Bush and even (reportedly) dissed Condoleezza Rice at the 2002 NAACP awards. He is considered an “outcast” by the American Black Power Establishment because of his leftist views and shocked many when he visited Cuba in 2003 and met with then-president Fidel Castro. One possible end result of this little facade is both men using the attention to promote their respective shows, movies/plays (Perry) and Comic Strips (McGruder), though this is unlikely since The Boondocks comic strip was cancelled in 2006, four years prior to this episodeCultural references The character Winston Jerome is, as mentioned above, a parody of playwright and filmmaker Tyler Perry. Jerome’s character Ma Dukes (who he crossdresses to portray) and the play at the beginning are parodies of Tyler Perry’s character Mabel Simmons—known as Madea—and his plays and films. The episode parodies The Rocky Horror Picture Show and the songs “Sweet Transvestite” and “The Time Warp”. When Granddad recalls his acting career a flashback shows him auditioning for In the Heat of the Night, Enter the Dragon, and Rocky III. The” brown skinned bald dude from Law and Order ” is a reference to Steve Harris who plays as one of the antagonists in the film production of Diary of a Mad Black Woman. The blonde-haired overweight black woman (a parody of Cassi Davis: an actress that is frequently cast in Tyler Perry’s theatrical productions, as well as the television series: Tyler Perry’s House of Payne) seen through-out the episode in a zombie-like trance, states on two occasions that she “is going to get some Kool-Aid”. This is a reference to the mass suicide executed by the 909 members of The Peoples Temple Church led by Jim Jones. They all died by consuming cyanide-laced grape Flavor Aid. (The term “drinking the Kool-Aid” originates from this incident.)  Show Music: Intro:  #Makeachange by K.I.R.K. is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-NoDerivatives 4.0 License.

The Fund-Raiser – S03/E07 WelcomeEpisode synopsis HBOMax Synopsis: Riley takes over the school candy bar hustle and floods the block with sugar. But when the competition comes looking for payback, it’s all out war for control of the chocolate covered streets. Will the sweet life take Riley under?

Post Show: Next week: Pause Need to see where we are on social media and such?  Come find us!  https://www.theboondockspod.com/links Trivia: This is the fourth time Riley has taken narrating duties in the series. Ed Wuncler III was shot once again, but this time, his W-Chain protected him, although the impact of the bullet against the chain against his chest had knocked him out. If Huey had never predicted Riley’s fate and given him a bullet-proof vest, Riley would have been killed as it was shown that he was shot in the chest region of the vest. This is Cindy McPhearson’s fourth and final appearance on The Boondocks. The opening music is a slowed Scarface theme song. The music for the montage after Riley confronts the principal is similar to Debbie Harry’s “Rush Rush” from Scarface. Cindy references rapper Beanie Siegel from the film State Property when she says – “Either Get Down Or Lay Down” The premise of the episode is similar to that of Scarface. The speech that Granddad gives Riley about allowance is a reference to the speech that Julius from the sitcom Everybody Hates Chris gives Chris when he asks for an allowance, for example when he says “I allow you to live in this house!” The student being dunked and frozen in chocolate is a reference to the scene in The Empire Strikes Back in which Han Solo is frozen in carbonite. The Scene in which Cindy and her friends bully a girl for selling on her territory is taken from a skit, “Can It Be All So Simple” remix on Raekwon‘s Only Built 4 Cuban Linx… album. When Riley tells the business owner off, he says “My President is Black and my Lambo is Blue,” which are lines from the Young Jeezy song “My President”. There is a Goodfellas reference when Riley confronts Jazmine about the money, similar to when Henry’s wife got rid of the coke and Henry confronted her on it. There is also a Goodfellas reference when Riley is driving to close his fundraiser, and he looks up to see a helicopter following him. Another Goodfellas reference is at the episode’s end. Riley starts as a normal “loser” kid, and after everything ends up the same way. Just like Henry Hill started out as an average nobody, tried to run away from it, but still ended up in the “schnook” life. The scene where Granddad‘s new car blows up is similar to a scene from The Godfather in which Michael Corleone’s wife, Apollonia, is killed after igniting a car bomb. The scene where the chocolate factory owner sits and introduces himself to Riley is a reference to Harry Lonsdale’s monologue in the film Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels. In the same scene, when Riley is being seen and his thoughts are being heard, the end of Snatch with Turkish sitting in front of Doug ‘The Head’ Denovitz is referenced. The name of the chocolate factory owner is “Alestor Rigby”. This may be a reference to the British song “Eleanor Rigby” by The Beatles. Additionally as Riley responds to the chocolate factory owner, he says “Fuck Guy Ritchie.” Guy Ritchie being the director of the previously referenced movies Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels and Snatch. He also directed the Sherlock Holmes films starring Robert Downey, Jr. Additional British references include the chocolate factory owner mentioning “(he) gets angry when Liverpool beats Arsenal.” The reference is to the two English football clubs in the Premier League. The allusion to him being an Arsenal supporter is supported by his Cockney accent – an accent stereotypically associated with working-class London, Arsenal’s home city. The scene where the PETA worker pulls out the check for the fundraising money that Jazmine sent to the organization was in reference to the golden tickets in Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory. The scene in which Riley describes how the kids sell the chocolate is a reference to rapper Freeway‘s song “What We Do” in which Jay-Z raps “Rain…sleet, hail…snow man” and refers to selling drugs in any circumstances. The shootout scene is a reference to a similar shootout which also saves the protagonists in Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels. The ending scene where Riley narrates would he do it again is in reference to the film Paid in Full. When Riley says that Cindy has “less compassion than the average girl”, it may have been a reference to when 50 Cent said that President Bush has “less compassion than the average human.” The scene where Riley and his crew are walking down the sidewalk slowly while wearing sunglasses is a reference to the opening sequence of the Tarantino heist film Reservoir Dogs. The shoot-out is also very similar to the one in True Romance, a film written by Quentin Tarantino. The desire to use Riley’s money to buy a car that turns into a boat was previously expressed by Granddad when he was in Riley’s dream in “Ballin'”. Phil, the character accompanying Jazmine in this episode, was the same character that was kidnapped and interrogated by Ed Wuncler III in the episode of “Shinin'”. Thugnificent is working as a delivery man which is a continuity of the episode “Bitches to Rags”. He also uses his UPS delivery van in an attempt to crash Dorthy’s car in “Fried Chicken Flu”. Thugnificent continues to work as a delivery man in “Mr. Medicinal”  Show Music: Intro:  #Makeachange by K.I.R.K. is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-NoDerivatives 4.0 License.

Smokin' With Cigarettes

2021-10-0401:38:16

Smokin’ With Cigarettes – S03/E06 WelcomeEpisode synopsis HBOMax Synopsis: If it’s fun to do bad things, then Riley is having the best time ever with juvenile felon Lamilton Taeshawn. But when Lamilton wants to prove he has the juice, the good times come to a shocking end. Will Riley know the ledge? Pre Show: Took some time off last week R.

Post Show: Next week: The Fund-Raiser Need to see where we are on social media and such?  Come find us!  https://www.theboondockspod.com/links Trivia: The final battle between Riley and Lamilton appears to be the first time in the series that Riley has single-handedly won a fight (although when Uncle Ruckus interrupted the fight, he distracted Lamilton momentarily). Throughout the episode, dozens of hints are given to Lamilton being a psychopath. In fact, Lamilton’s personality is very applicable to the definition of a psychopath. Throughout the episode, Lamilton’s name is sung in the style of a dramatic chant, a la The Omen. Lamilton Taeshawn is a spoof on 7-year-old Latarian Milton. Latarian Milton went on a driving spree in his grandmother’s SUV, then beat his grandmother over fried chicken; both of these antics occur in the episode. The episode’s title, “Smokin With Cigarettes”, comes from a quote from Milton in an interview, in which he said “…and he smokes with cigarettes”. This is also referenced frequently throughout the episode. The promo for this episode says “it’s fun to do bad things”, a quote from the same interview. The interview at the beginning is a parody of the 2002 film The Ring. The interview involving the “chicken wing” scene can be found on the internet.[2] The psychotic, red-haired clown that appears in the horror film Riley and Lamilton watch is a reference to Killjoy from the 2000 film Killjoy. Dr. Doomis is a reference to Dr. Sam Loomis from the Halloween franchise. The conversation between Dr. Doomis, Huey, and Granddad is almost identical to the one that Dr. Loomis has with Sheriff Leigh Brackett in the original Halloween movie. Frequently music similar to the theme from the Halloween franchise is played when Lamilton is on screen. The fight scene on the roof bears striking similarity to the final fight in Juice, and is most likely an homage. In fact, the episode makes frequent references to the film: During the fight scene with Riley and Lamilton, the song (presumably by Metaphor The Great) playing in the background has a beat similar to Eric B. & Rakim‘s hit song, “Know the Ledge”, which was made for the movie Juice which is frequently referenced in this episode. When Lamilton confronts Riley at his locker, this scene mirrors Bishop intimidating Q with a gun at school. When Riley throws Lamilton’s gun off the edge of the school, it is similar to when Q throws the gun into the river Earlier in the episode and in the promo, the statement of “who’s got the juice” pays homage to the title of the movie. When Lamilton kills the dog, he claims, “It jumped at me”, similar to Bishop when he killed the liquor store owner. The ending mirrors the similar scene from Juice with Riley having someone say the phrase “you got a cigarette” in the manner Q was told “you got the juice now” at the end of the movie. Part of the episode deals with similar elements from the movie The Good Son starring Macaulay Culkin as a mentally disturbed boy, Henry, who engages in several similar activities that Lamilton does like smoking, stealing things, pulling pranks, causing a massive car pile up, and killing a chained up guard dog, and like Riley he tries to get his cousin Mark played by Elijah Wood to be like him. Lamilton’s mugshot indicates that his police identification number is “0666” in reference to the number of the devil. After Lamilton assaults his grandmother in the local Walli-Mart, (a parody of Wal-Mart), they are both interviewed by a news reporter in front of the Walli-Mart. The front of the Walli-Mart can be seen with the words “We Work For Less”, (a parody of their tag line “More For Less”). This episode aired June 6 (6/6) and is the 6th episode of the third season, in reference to the number of the devil.   Show Music: Intro:  #Makeachange by K.I.R.K. is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-NoDerivatives 4.0 License.

The beginning of the episode of Stinkmeaner clones attacking the Freemans, Dubois, and Uncle Ruckus is a parody of the beginning of the film 28 Weeks Later. Robert’s escape is another reference to the film. Lord Rufus Crabmiser resembles and talks like Fred Sanford from “Sanford and Son”, Lady Esmeralda Gripenasty resembles and talks like Esther from “Sanford and Son”, and Mr. George Pistofferson resembles J.J. from “Good Times.” He can even be heard shouting “Dynomite!” when Bushido Brown is decapitated. Stinkmeaner and his crew “roamed the earth” after being kicked out of the retirement home similar to Caine in the series Kung Fu. The shot in which Bushido Brown’s decapitated head rolls towards the Freemans’ feet bears a strong resemblance to a scene in Afro Samurai , where the protagonist’s father is decapitated in a similar way. It’s revealed that Stinkmeaner used to live in a retirement home, before getting kicked out for causing too much trouble for everyone. The Flying Guillotine is a reference to the featured weapon in the Master of the Flying Guillotine. This is the first episode to be rated TV-MA-V.  Show Music: Intro:  #Makeachange by K.I.R.K. is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-NoDerivatives 4.0 License.

Post Show: Thanks again to Demond! Next week: Stinkmeaner 3:  The Hateocracy Need to see where we are on social media and such?  Come find us!  https://www.theboondockspod.com/links Trivia: The character Jimmy Rebel is a parody of real racist singer Johnny Rebel. Additional references include the single “Coon Town” and the album “It’s the Attitude Stupid!”. When Ruckus falsely renames himself “Toby” upon seeing Jimmy Rebel at the door, it is a reference to the series Roots in which Kunta Kinte is renamed Toby by his slave master. As Ruckus talks to Jimmy Rebel he says “As if the internet scams and underwear bombs weren’t bad enough, Goddamn Nigerians” This was a reference to Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, a Nigerian Muslim who unsuccessfully tried to ignite plastic explosives hidden in his underwear while on board Northwest Airlines Flight 253 on December 24, 2009. The limousine Ruckus and Jimmy escape in is painted with the orange color scheme of the General Lee car from The Dukes of Hazzard. During the limousine ride to “Spokenhoke”, there is a “Robert E. Lee Freeway” sign. The sign next to Ruckus’s door which says “Wallace for President” is a reference to one of the many presidential runs of segregationist former Alabama governor George Wallace. During the scene where Uncle Ruckus is sitting on his couch you can clearly see an LP labeled “Songs in the Key of Coon”, which is a reference to Stevie Wonder’s album Songs in the Key of Life. This episode is one of two Season 3 episodes that has been banned from Adult Swim because of its excessive depiction of racism. It is also the only episode to not be available on HBO Max. The other episode that was banned was Pause.  Show Music: Intro:  #Makeachange by K.I.R.K. is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-NoDerivatives 4.0 License.

The Red Ball – S03/E03 Lynxi WelcomeEpisode synopsis HBOMax Synopsis: When the Chinese call in some old debts, Ed Wuncler is forced to gamble all of Woodcrest’s economic fortunes on a kickball game with its sister city, Wushung, China. Kickball legend Huey Freeman is to come out of self-imposed exile. Pre Show: MJ and Tiara are out today Welcome to Demond! – https://twitter.com/demonddoes R.I.P.

Post Show: Thanks again to Demond! Next week: The Story of Jimmy Rebel Need to see where we are on social media and such?  Come find us!  https://www.theboondockspod.com/links Trivia: The scene at the end of the game is highly reminiscent of the famous anime series Dragon Ball. This is the episode with the most injuries; it is also the only episode where Butch Magnus is injured. This episode is the first since the pilot in which Ed Wuncler speaks directly to his grandson. Ms. Van Heusen, Butch, Gin Rummy and Cindy do not speak at any time in the episode. In the episode, Ed Wuncler voices his complaint that one of the Wushung players is clearly overage due to his massive physical build. However, Long Dou assures that he is only 12 years old and an aid behind him holds up a birth certificate to verify this. This is a reference to the 2008 Summer Olympic Games in Beijing and the controversy surrounding the ages of the Chinese gymnastics team members. Many of the exaggerated super-speed and super-powered kickball moves, especially Huey’s final kick and his catch, are influenced by the Chinese comedy movie Shaolin Soccer. Uncle Ruckus, as referee, cites a racist line from Blazing Saddles when Huey knocks out the kicker at bat. Despite the fact that the Woodcrest Team are declared the winners, the score remained tied at 8-8 after the final play. Dante Basco makes a cameo appearance as Jingmei in the episode.

Bitches to Rags – S03/E02 Lynxi WelcomeEpisode synopsis HBOMax Synopsis: Thugnificent has seen better days. Auto-tune, rap beef, nothing can stop the IRS when his new album tanks. Faced with the horror of getting a real job, Otis Jenkins takes some pretty desperate measures to stay afloat.

It is used to erase possible misconception about the person’s sexuality when saying something that could be misconstrued as gay. For example, when Flonominal gets fired and walks away, Thugnificent yells “I love you man….. no homo”. The Scenes in which Thugnificent shouts out Damn,Damn,DAMN is a reference to the closing moments of an episode of Good Times where James died and Florida Evans has finally accepted the fact that her Husband is really gone. Sgt. Gutta is a parody of teenage rapper Soulja Boy Tell ‘Em. His song “Crank That (Artichoke)” and its accompanying dance is a reference to Soulja Boy’s smash hit “Crank That (Soulja Boy)”. Sgt. Gutta’s feud with the “old” rapper Thugnificent is a reference to the real-life feud Soulja Boy had with rapper Ice-T. The two also traded internet videos to further their beef. “Mo Bitches Mo Problems”, Thugnificent’s latest album, is a play on the name of The Notorious B.I.G.’s single “Mo Money Mo Problems”. The episode’s title references Thugnificent’s first appearance in the series in the episode “The Story of Thugnificent”, where MTV aired a documentary about Thugnificent called Rags to Bitches. In the scene where Thugnificent is selling crack, one of the characters trying to buy from him is similar to Tyrone Biggums, a crack addict that Dave Chappelle portrays on Chappelle’s Show. Charlie Murphy, a regular on Chappelle’s Show, was listed as a guest star in the episode credits. He does the voiceovers for Ed Wuncler III. The Scene where Thugnificent is trying to sell drugs to Steve is a homage to the film Boogie Nights starring Thomas Jane and Mark Wahlberg, right down to the Asian kid throwing firecrackers. Thugnificent strays from his original style and creates an entire album using “auto-tune”. This is similar to Kanye West’s album 808’s and Heartbreak. In the end when Thugnificent gets a job at UPS is a reference to the infamous Notorious B.I.G. line from “Flava in Ya Ear Remix”. This version of the song also features LL Cool J and more importantly Busta Rhymes, who is normally featured as the voice of Flonominal, however he is voiced by Kevin Michael Richardson in this episode. At the end, Riley refers to himself as “The Fundraiser” as seen in “The Fundraiser” episode later on. Also when Thugnificent tells Sgt. Gutta to “pop his Mama tittie out his mouth” that is referenced from the movie “Major Payne” when Major Payne tells Miss Walburn to pop her tittie out of Tiger’s mouth and stop babying him. Leonard, the Lethal Interjection reject from the episode “Shinin'”, is revealed to be not only living in Thugnificent’s home, but also the only one in the house earning money to pay the bills. In another continuity from Shinin’, Leonard says if Lethal Interjection someday goes down the gutter, that the crew would be “flippin’ burgers at Wendy’s.” In this episode, he actually gets a job at Wendy’s when Thugnificent is unable to pay for his house. Macktastic does not appear in this episode. According to his business card, Flonominal’s real name is Derrick Cornish. This is the first episode of the series where Huey has no speaking parts. This is the third episode in the series where Riley has taken narrating duties, the first being in the Season 1 episode “The Story of Gangstalicious” and the second being the season 2 episode “Shinin'”. The title of the episode references a saying by Thugnificent, saying they were going from “Rags to bitches,” similar to the saying “Rags to riches,” describing a poor person who became rich.

Later in the episode, Granddad says “Don’t tase me, bro!” to an armed security guard at Obama’s inauguration before being tasered. (University of Florida Taser incident) The Dick Ridin’ Obama song is a parody of the songs “Yes We Can” and “It’s a New Day”, by Will.I.Am. Thugnificent was featured in the video. After Obama’s electoral victory is announced on TV, Sarah says that “for the first time in my life, I’m proud to be an American,” a reference to a similar quote by Michelle Obama, speaking in Milwaukee, Wisconsin during the 2008 presidential campaign. Thugnificent says he will replace the word “N***a” with “Obama” and “Bitches” with “Michelle,” a reference to a similar statement made by Jim Jones. The title is a reference to the 1966 Peanuts special It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown. It is the second time a Peanuts animated special was referenced in a title- the first being “A Huey Freeman Christmas” (A Charlie Brown Christmas) When Granddad is exchanging the picture of Huey and Riley with one of Obama, a picture of the cast of The Warriors can be seen as well as a picture of economist Thomas Sowell. Tom and Sarah are shown wearing Obama Girl and Boy t-shirts. Sarah’s shirt is in reference to the viral video and internet star Obama Girl. In the beginning where Huey is one of Obama’s top friends on Myspace is a reference to when the rapper Jin became one of Obama’s top Myspace friends after his song “Open Letter To Obama”. Early in the episode, John McCain states that Huey is a boy that thinks “Jesus is black, Ronald Reagan is the devil, and the government is lying about 9/11.” This is a reference to “The Garden Party“, where Huey speaks those exact words to party guests in his dream. They were also the first words Huey spoke in the series. This is the second time in the series Huey has had to abort an ‘operation’ “because he couldn’t get a ride”. The first was in “The Passion of Reverend Ruckus“. Uncle Ruckus has more precise aim with his brick throwing unlike Season 1 (“Return of the King”). Ironically, he decides not to throw a brick at Obama at the Inauguration because “his throwing arm isn’t what it used to be”. This is the second episode in the series in which Riley is shown as a graffiti artist.

Post Show: Next week: The Uncle Ruckus Reality Show Need to see where we are on social media and such?  Come find us!  https://www.theboondockspod.com/links Trivia: There are widespread rumors that this show and a second episode (“The Uncle Ruckus Reality Show”) have been banned from airing in the U.S. due to threatened litigation from BET. However, a Cartoon Network representative stated that BET had not contacted Cartoon Network regarding the episodes. This, however, does not negate the possibility that Viacom, BET’s parent company, may have threatened litigation against Sony. Sony Pictures Television, which produces the series, has not issued a statement on the matter. The episodes are said to specifically attack Reggie Hudlin, BET’s President of Entertainment, and Debra L. Lee, President and Chief Executive Officer of BET Holdings (parent company of BET.) Lee is portrayed as Deborah Leevil, a parody of the character Dr. Evil from the Austin Powers movies, and Hudlin is portrayed as Wedgie Rudlin, a “culturally insensitive buffoon coasting on his Ivy League education.”Ironically, Hudlin had retained an executive producer credit on The Boondocks, though this is only a contractual obligation; Hudlin has not had any involvement with the show since the first pilot was rejected by Fox. During the episode, the character Deborah Leevil relates the mission of BET within The Boondocks universe, stating:“Our leader Bob Johnson had a dream, a dream that would accomplish what hundreds of years of slavery, Jim Crow and malt liquor could not accomplish – the destruction of black people.” On the DVD release of the second season, McGruder states “I was looking for changes and improvements, and I didn’t see any.” referring to BET’s programming. He decided to show his frustration using satire in The Boondocks, reasoning “I didn’t see them. So I said, OK, it’s fair game.” Debra Leevil is a mixed caricature of Dr. Evil from the Austin Powers movie trilogy, along with Cruella de Vil of the One Hundred and One Dalmatians fame. : Elements including music, impulsive slaying of junior executives, and layout of the board room are all reminiscent of the Austin Powers movies, while Leevil’s looks strongly mirror the latter character. There are several American culture references in this episode. The documentary Rollo Goodlove makes called “BET: The High Cost of Low Standards” is a parody on the title of an anti-Wal-mart documentary entitled “Wal-Mart: The High Cost of Low Price”. It also references facts found in that documentary. Rollo Goodlove dances to Soulja Boy Tell ‘Em, though not that well and doesn’t seem to know all the words. The song that Rollo Goodlove sings during his protest is “Go-Go Gadget Gospel” by Gnarls Barkley. At one point during the episode, a boy gets up from his couch and says “Man fuck BET! I’m gonna read a book!”. This is a reference to the D’Mite satire song titled “Read a Book” which, ironically, gained its popularity by becoming an animated music video on BET. At the end of the show, Huey asks Granddad for advice and says, “What do you do when you can’t do nothing, but there’s nothing you can do?” Granddad responds by saying, “You do what you can,” which is the same advice Martin Luther King, Jr. gives Huey at the end of Return of the King.  Show Music: Intro:  #Makeachange by K.I.R.K. is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-NoDerivatives 4.0 License.

Post Show: Next week:  The Hunger Strike Need to see where we are on social media and such?  Come find us!  https://www.theboondockspod.com/links Trivia: The character of Jessica “Wondercheeks” Ethelburg is an allusion to Karrine “Superhead” Steffans, a former video vixen who published a tell-all autobiography about the secret lives of rappers, including Big Tigger’s alleged homosexuality. When Gangstalicious shows off his clothing line, he is apparently on the morning talk show Live with Regis and Kelly. Regis Philbin can be heard calling out the name of the show’s producer “Gelman” in reference to Michael Gelman. This was the second time Cindy McPhearson was on The Boondocks. The ending song of the episode is Aalon – Rock ‘N’ Roll Gangster. This is the only episode so far where Uncle Ruckus doesn’t exhibit self-hating racism.  Show Music: Intro:  #Makeachange by K.I.R.K. is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-NoDerivatives 4.0 License.
