A character sheet from Aaron McGruder's newspaper comic strip-turned-animated series The Boondocks.

The Freeman Family


File:Huey 9422.jpg

 I am the stone that the builder refused

I am the visual, the inspiration that made Lady Sing the Blues

 Huey: Most people don't have the time or the energy to follow politics, and the government takes advantage of that. This country needs to keep a closer eye on Washington! We need to start holding our elected officials responsible for this mess!

Caesar: Wow... So who is our Congressman, Huey?

Huey: Who knows... Some punk...

 I'm the spark that makes your idea bright

the same spark that lights the dark

so that you can know your left from your right

Robert "Granddad" Freeman

 I am the ballot in your box

the bullet in the gun

that inner glow that lets you know to call your brother "son"

  "You ever try beatin' his ass?"

Jericho Freeman

Other Characters

 The story that just begun

the promise of what's to come

and imma remain a soldier

til' the war is won (won)

Uncle Ruckus (No Relation)

File:Uncle Ruckus 7092.jpg

 Uncle Ruckus: (Calmly) Say that again? I couldn't hear you over the sound of me shittin' myself.

  • Canon Immigrant: He was originally created for the show, but McGruder added him to the comic in the brief period between the show starting and the comic ending.
  • Characterization Marches On: Season 1 actually has moments where he seems completely aware that he's black. Refering to whites as "they" and blacks as "we" is a subtle example.
    • Other lines include "I was happy at the back of the buss" and "I would have shoot you myself but I realised the white man got better aim." Not to mention the episode "The Passion of Reverend Ruckus".
  • Continuity Nod: He's a reverend again in "Stinkmeaner Strikes Back".

 Uncle Ruckus: I am Reverend Father Uncle Ruckus. No relation.

Jazmine Dubois

File:Jazmine 4374.jpg
  • Accidental Pervert: Poor Jazmine. Her first penis display belonged to an 80+ year old man.
  • Break the Cutie: A major reason Huey has for talking to her in the comics, though he doesn't exactly mean to be malicious - he truly thinks she would be better off if she were a cynic like him, so he makes it his mission to tear down her childlike beliefs.
  • Butt Monkey: In the comic, though she only tends to be treated badly by Huey and occasionally Riley. It seems like in general the world enjoys messing with her naivete.
  • Cheerful Child
  • Fan Girl: Of Usher.
  • Funny Afro: Makes her insecure. Played for laughs, naturally.
  • Green Eyes
  • Hikikomori: Once she returns in the comic book her two year long Chuck Cunningham Syndrome is explained as her locking herself in her room ever since 9/11 our of fear of terrorists.
  • I Am Not Pretty
  • Luminescent Blush: At the end of "Wingmen".
  • Vocal Evolution: Justified since her voice actor was a little girl when the series began.
  • Wide-Eyed Idealist

Tom Dubois

Sarah Dubois

File:Sarahdubois 3681.jpg
  • Fan Girl: Of Usher and Barack Obama.
  • Hair of Gold
  • Hot Mom: Oh Yes. Especially in the cartoon.
  • Satellite Character: She's Tom's wife, Jazmine's mother, the Freeman's neighbor and every episode she's featured in deals with one of those facts.
  • Token White
  • Where Da Black Men At: In the comics, she only dated black men, eventually marrying Tom. She's still openly attracted to black men, notably Usher and President Obama in the show, much to Tom's dismay.

  Robert Freeman: Did you just tell me to whipe your ass?


File:Attackofthekillerkungfuwolfbitch 5862.jpg
  • Abusive Parents: Her father would constantly beat her mother right in front of her, even over a piece of chicken. Unfortunately, Luna suffered the same type of abuse in her previous relationships.
  • Action Girl
  • ...And Show It to You: Did this to a guy back in the Kumite (WA-TA!), all completed with this line:
  • Badass
  • Cute and Psycho
  • Dark and Troubled Past: Troubled would be an understatement for this girl: beside from being Raised by Wolves, Luna has suffered every type of abuse in every relationship she's been in. It doesn't help that she grew up in a broken home with an abusive father.
  • Disproportionate Retribution: Like her mother, Luna was severely abused over the slightest things, whether the cooking was cold and the laundry was done wrong.
    • Her friend Nicole doesn't help either; she suggested that Luna should just outright kill Granddad just for cutting their weekend short.

  Nicole: Now remember, this is not your fault. This man took your weekend from you. Two days you'll never get back! You gotta kill him.


  Luna: I will rape your grandfather with this broomstick!

    • It's also implied she's also suffered this during that summer with Jim Brown.
  • She Fu: She beats the living shit out of Huey, chokes out Granddad, and tosses Tom across the room by the neck with her legs, ** Waif Fu: Luna is also much stronger than she looks, as she is seen a flashback beating the crap of a guy three times her size in the Kumite (HIYAA!) flashback and rips his heart right out of his chest. She also laments wiping the floor with Huey by punching a hole in the wall.
  • Skilled but Naive: A literal example; she's practically a trained killer, but easily fell for Granddad's Fidel Castro lie.
  • Stepford Smiler: Type C.
  • Toxic Friend Influence: Her friend Nicole is the epitome of this trope.
  • Unusual Euphemism: Her "friendly sparring match" with Huey wasn't so friendly... for Huey, that is.
  • Wham! Line:

  Luna: I thought you were going to say that I was crazy and you didn't want to see me again like the others.

  • Woman Scorned: She rose hell when she found out Granddad lied to her about attending Fidel Castro's birthday party.
  • Yandere: And how.

Otis "Thugnificent" Jenkins

File:Thugnificent 2449.jpg
  • A Bro To His Men
  • Ascended Extra: Albeit slightly - having only appeared in 3 episodes in Season 2, he appeared in 5 episodes for Season 3.
  • Auto-Tune: Uses it in his album "Mo' Bitches, Mo' Problems". Which fails spectacularly since he uses it in all his songs.
  • Big Damn Heroes: Even after getting kicked out of Granddad's house, he still managed to come to the rescue in "Fried Chicken Flu".
  • A Day in the Limelight: "Bitches to Rags".
  • Drives Like Crazy
  • Early-Bird Cameo: Kind of. That song "Booty Butt Cheeks" you hear throughout Season 1? He made that.
  • Important Haircut: After he sells his home, he loses the "Mickey Mouse" afro.
  • Incoming Ham: The Running Gag of his arrival being heralded by a glass-shatteringly loud rendition of one of his own songs.
  • Intergenerational Friendship: With Riley.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: He's an irresponsible idiot, but he's probably one of the nicest characters in the series.
  • Nice Job Breaking It, Hero: Gets his buddy fired from his job, due to No Such Thing as HR.
    • And again when he visit a Asian friend for help for his failing career and instantly got it just from simply asking. The thing though he brought Ed Wuncler III with him since he thought it was a drug deal. When Ed realized he wasn't getting any money out of it...yeah.
  • Rich in Dollars, Poor In Sense: A good showman but due to trying to preserve his image, not the smartest when it comes to money. Ultimately derails his music career in season three.
  • Riches to Rags: The episode title is a even a play off the name.
  • Vitriolic Best Buds: Gets off to a rocky start with Granddad, but eventually they put aside their differences. This is especially apparent after Otis gives up his "Thugnificent" persona.

 Thugnificent: Old man, I know I told you to go eat dicks in the past, but you alright with me.
