* FollowTheLeader: Inverted. [=McGruder=] has stated that what drove him to take the book into a hardline left political direction was a conversation he had with [[{{Doonesbury}} Garry Trudeau]] over the issue of the September 11th Terrorist Attacks. Trudeau told [=McGruder=] that he was going to wait until around December before he would begin incorporating the terrorist attacks and the political fallout the attacks would have upon America. This led to [=McGruder=] deciding to immediately incorporate 9-11 and the political fall-out into the comic strip, since no one else was doing this.

** In a series of "80s-centric" ''Boondocks'' strips, Granddad threatens to take away Huey's ''BloomCounty'' books. ''Bloom County'', of course being a highly influential comic strip that mixed pop culture and politics that has considerably influenced ''The Boondocks''.

* BeforeMyTime: Tom asks Huey whether he's named after [[HueyLewisAndTheNews Huey Lewis]], and Huey actually responds, "Before my time." The subversion comes in the fact that Huey has just given an erudite lecture on Black Panther [[AngryBlackMan Huey Newton]], who is older than Lewis.

* ComicBookTime: Given how topical the comic strip was and its focus on then-current events, it's very noticeable that nobody (especially the kids) are [[NotAllowedToGrowUp ever shown to be aging]]. Lampshaded by Caesar during the era of the 2004 US presidential election: -->'''Caesar:''' Can you believe it's been four years since the last election? -->'''Huey:''' Yeah. -->'''Caesar:''' Funny. Seems like we haven't aged a day...

* NotAllowedToGrowUp: All the kids. Even if you don't count the comics, Huey's been ten since the Bush administration. -->'''Caesar:''' Another Presidential Election...\\ '''Huey:''' Yep.\\ '''Caesar:''' Can you believe it's been four years since the last one?\\ '''Huey:''' Yeah...\\
