** One whole storyline revolves around Huey trying to have MichaelBolton murdered. At least one hitman implied that he'd ''love'' to do it, if only Huey could pay him enough to cover the expenses (he couldn't). And don't get Huey started on Jar Jar Binks.

Most of the comic strip's humor was very satirical and topical in nature. Aaron [=McGruder=] used the comic as a [[AuthorTract vehicle for his social views]], covering a lot of [[RippedFromTheHeadlines then-current news events]] on African-Americans and the United States in general. His favorite subjects of mockery were annoying black celebrities and right-wing politicians (especially the UsefulNotes/GeorgeWBush administration). Unsurprisingly, this comic strip attracted a lot of controversy, but also a lot of popularity over the years.

Not to be confused with ''TheBoondockSaints''.

Added DiffLines:

* {{Animesque}}: Not as obvious as it is in the [[WesternAnimation/TheBoondocks animated series]], but there's still a definite manga influence in the comic's art style.

* 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 [[ComicStrip/{{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''.
