Are We Getting a Fourth Season of The Boondocks? Yes?

There is a God... After The Boondocks debuted its third season last year, there was talk that the then current adventures of the Freeman clan and their fellow Woodcrest denizens would be their last.

'The Boondocks' (allegedly) take on Tyler Perry: Too far?

Image Credit: Adult SwimSouth Park's decade-plus of brilliantly skewering celebs has made that type of satire de rigueur for adult-oriented animation. But when The Boondocks latest episode featured a sassy, gun-waiving, bump-and-grinding Madea-esque character that ruled stage, film, and TV - and the Jesus-praising male auteur who plays her - it still got folks talking. The Pause episode's Ma Duke character was clearly Madea, and it stands to reason that the Winston Jerome character was Tyler Perry (neither Perry's office nor Turner Networks would comment on the episode).
