    Originated as a comic strip
    Premise: The Freeman kids move into a fictional white suburb to live with their irascible granddad
    Won a Peabody Award (2006)
    It aired on Adult Swim after being rejected by FOX.
    Four years passed between the third and fourth seasons.
    Two episodes were censored for taking shots at BET.
    It is yet one more show that is being 'rebooted.'
    Uncle Ruckus was pretty much the Kingfish by another name.
    It normalized the use of the N-word.
    They tried to have it both ways by recycling old-ass racial tropes about black people and selling it as woke progressivism.
    It aired an episode in which Martin Luther King returns from the grave to lecture black Americans and - yes - call them the N-word.
    A 2006 episode aired set in the future predicted that Oprah would be elected President in 2020 (pending).
    McGruder left the show with no explanation in its fourth season, shocking fans everywhere (can you say 'Jump the Shark?')
    It was even edgier than its comic strip counterpart.
    Al Sharpton tried to get it boycotted.
    It revived Regina King's career.
    The Freeman kids were basically suburban wankstas.
    They pissed off Tyler Perry with their caricature of him (he threatened the network over it).
    It threw major shade at R. Kelly - accurately predicting his later legal troubles.
    It tackled topics like the Iraq War, Hurricane Katrina, and the 2008 Presidential election - subjects many mainstream shows were afraid to touch.
    Its most popular catchphrase? 'Jesus was Black, Ronald Reagan was the devil, and the government is lying about 9/11!'
    Time Magazine ranked it the sixth of the Ten Most Controversial Cartoons of All Time.
    It offered an introspective look into the black community and wasn't afraid to get brutally honest about it (e.g. homosexuality, 'uncle-tomism,' black-on-black crime, etc.).
