*** True, slavery by itself isn't racist, though its history in America was definitely racist. Also, Ruckus generally treats white people with ''a lot'' of respect (unless they're gay), and you'd think he would be personally offended by reducing white folk to slavery right next to black folk.

** You don't object to a Wuncler and most were black anyway.
** Slavery and racism aren't mutually inclusive at all. Slavery was a part of most of the world until the Enlightenent, so yeah.

* A bit of FridgeLogic here. In "Freedomland", it's no surprise that Ruckus is enthusiastic about holding black people like the Freeman family as slaves. But, why doesn't the white-loving Ruckus ever question how Ed II is also holding white people as slaves? You'd think he would object to that.

** WordofGod stated that there were never plans to have Caesar in Season 1 of the show in the first place, in order to develop the already existing cast and introduce new characters gradually over the course of future seasons. It's also worth noting that this matches the comic, Caesar didn't appear instantly there either. For Season 2 there were plans to have him added to the cast (like what happened with Cindy) but that was held off on due to Aaron and the crew "not finding the right actress yet", although they noted they had an episode ready for his introduction. For his lack of appearance in Season 3, that could be explained as having been due to it originally being the final season of the series. It's anyone's guess if he'll appear in Season 4, though with CreeSummer joining the cast for the first time this Troper has his fingers crossed.

* How exactly is the Season 4 story arc resolved? I've read somewhere that going by production order, "Early Bird Special" is the true series finale, and somewhere was claimed that Vanessa paid off Robert's debts. Although it still seems rather inconclusive; the only thing we know for sure is that Ed Wuncler II's schemes against his debtors have been thwarted. But that doesn't solve Robert's bankruptcy itself, does it?

** It was probably Grandad's wife, since he was the other person in the painting. As for Caesar, someone on the Creator/AdultSwim MessageBoard claimed to have conformation from Caesar's potential actress on him being in Season 3, but since it's the final Season, and he hasn't shown up yet, he probably won't show up at all.

** It doesn't especially matter who it was on the mural; Robert would feel astonishment at the mural if it was either he and his wife on their wedding day, or his child and spouse (presumptively his son, since he and the boys share a last name and there's no reason to believe that they had a bad marriage or anything) on their wedding day. I personally believe that it was Huey and Riley's parents because of Huey's own level of surprise, but again, who it was is not important; it was about the manifestation of Riley's artistic gift in a way that Robert could not possibly deny that it was Riley who painted it that made the moment so significant.

*** Actually, its stated that they're dead, as according to the original comic strip, they died in an accident and Grandad used the ensuing inheritance to by the house.

*** But wait, I thought they never mentioned any cause of death for Huey's and Riley's parents? The subject is never really brought up in the comics nor show.




* So his name is Colonel H. Stinkmeaner. So... was he actually an Officer in the Army/Air Force/ Marines, or is his first name actually Colonel?
** KFC Colonel Sanders wasn't a colonel in any branch of the US Millitary and never served at all. He bought the title nominally.

to:

\n*** And remember when Huey proposed killing Ed Wuncler II, only for that plan to be shot down by Granddad ("You know for a smart nigga, you've sure got some dumbass plans.")? While Robert didn't elaborate, he did imply a good point; murdering an extremely rich and powerful man who has friends in the government ''just wouldn't end well''.

to:

** "Colonel" H. Stinkmeaner is probably a nickname of some kind. "Lord" Rufus Crabmiser and "Lady" Esmeralda Gripenasty probably aren't aristocrats.



* In the Reals how did Riley trick the reality show people?

*** Note that Ruckus is seen in the video posing as Grandad's driver. He actually says "Give 'im something better", implying that he would be the one driving "Bitches" around so he could get women.

to:

*** Caesar still hasn't appeared in Season 4. And it's unlikely he'd appear in a Season 5, as there are no plans (at least for now) for the show to continue.

** But who ever said that Ed II ''didn't'' own that convenience store?
