* GoMadFromTheRevelation: In "The Uncle Ruckus Reality Show", he goes through a DNA test. Ruckus reads the results and finds out that he's 100% African, much to his shock and horror. After Ruckus' unsuccessful [[DrivenToSuicide suicide attempt]], the show's producer (Wedgie Rudlin) forces the geneticist into redoing the DNA test, so that Ruckus is "actually" 50% Caucasian and he snaps back to normal.

* BeenThereShapedHistory
** Although how much of it is true [[UnreliableNarrator is uncertain, to say the least]]. He definitely was a Tuskegee Airman and present [[WrongGenreSavvy (albeit deeply unpopular)]] at Rosa Parks' bus protest and the Birmingham marches, definitely ''wasn't'' the UFC light-middleweight champion or a member of G-Unit, and may or may not have gotten into a knife fight with Jesse Jackson.
** Well, actually, the Rosa Parks thing was revealed in an episode that turned out all to be Huey imagining what would happen if Martin Luther King had fallen into a coma and woken up in the year 2000 rather than dying, so that one may not be true, either.
** Turns out he ''was'' a [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Freedom_Riders Freedom Rider]]... albeit entirely against his will as he got on the wrong bus.
