    Cristal 

Cristal (like the champagne)

Voiced by: Tiffany Thomas

A prostitute whom Robert dated in "Guess Hoe's Coming To Dinner". She works for A Pimp Named Slickback.


  • Ambiguously Brown: She has blonde hair and light skin, but speaks with an ebonic accent. Riley calls her a "fake-ass Mariah Carey".
  • Big Eater: She packs it away at the Red Lobster restaurant, and then asks for more food when she gets back to the Freeman house.
  • Gold Digger: She dates Robert, because he's obviously way above her social class. A song called "Gold Digger" even plays in the background at one point.
  • Hooker with a Heart of Gold: Maybe.
  • Insistent Terminology: "Cristal, like the champagne."
  • Lazy Bum: Huey and Riley complain about how she doesn't do any work around the house, instead just leeching off Robert's food and money.
  • Ms. Fanservice: Well it's part of her job after all.
  • Only Known by Their Nickname: "Cristal" might not be her real name. Huey notes that girls named after liquor are usually hoes.
  • Status Quo Is God: At first it seems that she takes Robert's advice to start a clean and honest life by getting an education and a real job, but instead she just runs back to Slickback, not knowing any different lifestyle.
  • Streetwalker: Just your average hooker.

Lincoln

A drug dealer who attempted to murder Gangstalicious. After failing the first time, he and two of his goons chase Gangstalicious and Riley across town to finish him off.


  • Gayngster: It turns out that Lincoln and Gangstalicious used to be secret gay lovers; this whole blood feud between them was actually a breakup gone horribly awry.
  • Imperial Stormtrooper Marksmanship Academy: When Lincoln and his men finally get their hands on Gangstalicious, they all fire dozens of bullets at him in point-blank range... and they completely miss! Then they just give up on killing him in the end.

  • Straight Gay: In contrast to Gangstalicious, who gradually becomes more Camp Gay.

    Art Teacher 

"The Art Teacher"

Voiced by: Rob Paulsen

A painter who gives Riley some art lessons after he's caught spraying graffiti. Ironically, he helps Riley improve his graffiti skills by teaching him how to paint cool murals on houses.


    Moe Jackson 

Moe "Mo' Guns" Jackson

Voiced by: Mike Epps

An old friend of Robert, whom he knew from way back when they served in the US Army Air Forces in World War II. Apparently not a good friend, as they split due to Moe's abrasive personality, and eventually a dispute over a woman they both sought after. After Moe's death, Robert (begrudgingly) attends his funeral in Chicago.


  • Armed Farces: Back when he and Robert served in the Tuskegee Airmen, Moe preferred to just goof off by telling bad jokes, while flying around and shooting wildly. This almost got Robert killed during an engagement against the Lutwaffe.
  • Face Death with Dignity: His video will shows that he at least didn't lose his sense of humor in his last days.
  • Fake Ultimate Hero: He tried to take credit for some of Robert's wartime medals and achievements.
  • The Friend Nobody Likes: It turns out that everyone who knew Moe had this relationship with him. Everyone is left wondering what they actually liked about him.
  • The Hyena: You'll lose track of how often he laughs at his own stupid jokes.
  • Jerkass: He was apparently well known for acting like a dick, and bringing out the worst in everyone.
    • Jerk with a Heart of Jerk: In his video will, Moe promised something nice for Robert... which was just a jar of foam peanuts.
  • Posthumous Character: Robert remembers him through flashbacks and a video will.
  • The Prankster / Troll: Not even his own impending death would end his capacity for annoying jokes and pranks.
  • The Tape Knew You Would Say That: Parts of his video will include begging Robert to go through with his wishes, including a pleading glance made until the exact moment Robert agrees to them. And a final laughing fit saved until after Robert received his "inheritance".

    Cairo 

Cairo

Voiced by: Che Bouey

Huey's former (best) friend from Chicago. When the Freemans return to Chicago for Moe's funeral, Huey finds out the hard way that Cairo isn't really interested in a reunion, due to Cairo's lingering resentment against Huey for leaving. Things only get uglier from there on.


  • Disproportionate Retribution: He treats Huey with absolute disdain simply because he moved away to a white-majority suburban town in another state, something that Huey didn't want and had no say in the matter.
  • Jerkass: Cairo insults Huey, calling him a "corny nigga" for moving to "Whitecrest", which provokes Huey into starting a brawl with him. Also see Rejected Apology.
  • Rejected Apology: When Huey offers a gift basket to apologize for fighting with Cairo, he spitefully responds by headbutting Huey and giving him a bloody nose. What a dick!
  • Those Two Guys: With his new best friend, Dewey Jenkins.
  • Ungrateful Bastard: Considering the rather rude way he rejected Huey's sincere attempt to mend their broken friendship.
  • We Used to Be Friends: Until Huey's family left Chicago for Woodcrest. When Huey returns, he finds that Cairo doesn't really consider him a friend anymore, as he blames Huey for leaving him behind. Their friendship is definitely broken for good in the ending.

    "Brother" Shabazz 

Shabazz K. Milton-Berle

Voiced by: Rashon Kahn

Shabazz is a Black Panther who was wrongly convicted of, and sentenced to death for, the murder of a cop named Gary Faulkner in 1970. His new pen pal Huey plans to break him out of prison before his execution.


  • Angry Black Man: Played with, as Shabazz was a member of the Black Panther Party, though he seems more like a rather mellow guy.
  • Cosmic Plaything: Due to the misfortune of simply being in the vicinity when it happened, Shabazz gets incarcerated and scheduled to be killed for a crime he didn't even commit.
    Shabazz: "Ain't this a bitch."
  • Deus ex Machina: Thanks to a sudden blackout caused by a lightning bolt, his execution by electric chair is thwarted. The power then returns just in time for the Governor to call in and commute his death sentence to life imprisonment.
  • Miscarriage of Justice: A very extreme case of this. Shabazz was misblamed for shooting Faulkner, even though there was a mountain of evidence left behind by the real killer, Eli Gorbinsky (who even publicly confessed while committing the murder in front of many witnesses).
  • No Celebrities Were Harmed: Shabazz K. Milton Berle is an obvious parody of Mumia Abu-Jamal. Both of them are Black Panthers who were controversially convicted and imprisoned for the murders of police officers. Mumia's supporters claim that he's an innocent man who was wrongly incarcerated. According to The Boondocks, Shabazz is a very obviously innocent man who somehow got thrown into prison anyway.

Season 2

    Usher 

Usher Raymond IV

Voiced by: Affion Crockett

A famous R&B singer whom Sarah and Jazmine are big fans of. Tom becomes concerned when it seems that Sarah (who is increasingly frustrated with her husband) is now developing romantic feelings for Usher.


  • Celeb Crush: Sarah has a very obvious crush on him, much to Tom's dismay.
  • Mistaken for Cheating: Tom learns that Sarah isn't having an extramarital affair with Usher, she just wanted to take Jazmine to meet him.
  • No-Holds-Barred Beatdown: After Tom bitch-slaps him on the face, Usher and his bodyguards retaliate by beating Tom to a pulp.

    Ghostface Killah 

Dennis "Ghostface Killah" Coles

Voiced by: Himself

The spirit of a rapper, who appears to Huey to give him advice on dealing with the ghost of Stinkmeaner.


  • Deadpan Snarker: Ghostface makes some rather sharp remarks. For example he has this to say to Huey, who can't believe his own prophetic vision that Stinkmeaner's soul has escaped from Hell for revenge:
    Ghostface Killah: "What you gonna tell me? Ghosts don't exist? What the fuck do I look like to you?"
  • Maybe Magic, Maybe Mundane: Like the White Shadow, Ghostface Killah only appears to Huey, so he might just be a figment of his mind. This gets lampshaded.
    Stinkmeaner: "Look at that little nigga over there! He talkin' to himself! Haha! You got an imaginary friend?"
  • Our Ghosts Are Different: Ghostface Killah appears as, well, a ghost. This is immediately lampshaded.
    Huey: "Ghostface Killah isn't even dead!"
  • Spirit Advisor: He serves this role to Huey, in a similar way to the White Shadow. He eventually gives him a solution to ending the Nigga Moment with Stinkmeaner: peace.

    Luna 

Luna

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/luna3424324_1811.png
Voiced by: Aisha Tyler

Luna is the antagonist of "Attack of the Killer Kung-Fu Wolf Bitch". She was briefly Robert's girlfriend, but turned out to be a deadly martial artist who was emotionally unstable. She doesn't take his rejection well...


  • Affably Evil: Luna is friendly at first and she just wants to date Robert, until he dumps her due to his fear of her abilities. And then she has a Villainous Breakdown.
  • And Show It to You: She ripped out somebody's heart back in the Kumite (WA-CHA!), all completed with this line:
  • Attempted Rape: After kidnapping Robert, she locks Huey and Riley inside their room, and threatens to sodomize Robert with a broomstick if either of them made a sound. Robert immediately tells them to quiet down after this.
  • Ax-Crazy: Oh yes. Especially when she kidnapped and tortured Robert.
  • Berserk Button / Hair-Trigger Temper: Any time she thinks that a man has wronged her somehow, whether it's physical or emotional abuse, or just being lied to.
  • Blood Knight: She proudly recalls the time that she fought in the Kumite (WHA-CHA!) contest and killed a man with her bare hands, which disturbs the Freemans.
  • Broken Bird: Her past relationships has reduced her to this. Her friend Nichole does nothing to help.
  • Crazy Canine Lady: Luna owns a pack of three dogs and fifteen wolves, and claims to have them all under her control. Hence Granddad's nickname for her, the "Killer Kung-Fu Wolf Bitch".
  • Cute and Psycho: Despite her sexy appearance and overall nice demeanor, she's pretty unstable.
  • Cute Bruiser: Definitely. She once ripped a man's heart out with her bare hands.
  • Dark Action Girl: As a master of White Lotus Kung Fu, she once overpowered and killed a man much bigger than her. And she later beats the utter shit out of Huey and Robert.
    • She mentions becoming a White Lotus master was real hard with a Psychotic Smirk, to which Huey remarks, "They're all dead." His comment insinuated he didn't believe her having learned the style, but the Curb-Stomp Battle quickly proves she was entirely truthful. This leaves the implication that she was the one who killed the masters at some point during or after her training.
  • Dark and Troubled Past / Freudian Excuse: Luna was born into a broken household, with an abusive dad who beat up her mom over petty reasons like cooking the chicken too cold. She later ran way and dated a series of boyfriends, all of whom were also physically and/or emotionally abusive to her (including a Chinese gangster who ironically enough, also hit her over cooking the chicken too cold).
    Luna's father / Kenny Wu: BITCH, THIS CHICKEN IS COLD! (slap)
  • Disproportionate Retribution: Luna is easily convinced by Nicole to 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.
  • Femme Fatale: Not by choice though.
  • Interrupted Suicide: Only most likely because Granddad and Tom were in the same room and tied up when Luna contemplated whether she should blow herself up with a grenade.
  • Large Ham: "If I could just find a man to love me-he-he-he-he *gasp* eh-he-he-he-he *gasp* eh-he- *beat* -eee."
  • Meaningful Name: Luna is a lunatic. It also invokes the Moon, and her love of wolves.
  • Medium Aware: When she arrives at the Freeman's home, her MySpace photo appears beside her and she looks over at it.
  • No Guy Wants an Amazon: Though this was more because of how Luna uses her fighting skills for wicked purposes. That is what prompts Robert to cancel his date with her, a rejection that Luna doesn't take very well...
  • Obliviously Evil: At least at first. She seems genuinely uncomprehending of how repelling her murderous candor is to regular people, so assumes everything must be wrong with them when they react badly.
  • Poisonous Friend Influence: Luna hangs onto Nicole's every word, even if she tells her to kill Granddad, or herself.
  • Psycho Ex-Girlfriend: She very quickly becomes one to Robert, when his attempt at dumping her after their first date goes horribly wrong.
  • Psychopathic Womanchild: Despite being a very skilled and deadly kung-fu warrior, she's very emotionally unstable due to suffering a lot of unresolved daddy issues / boyfriend problems. After all these years, she's still a sad and insecure little girl on the inside.
  • 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.
  • Skilled, but Naïve: A literal example; she's practically a trained killer, but easily fell for Granddad's Fidel Castro lie.
  • Stepford Smiler: First she's a pretty bombshell, then a dangerous psycho, until finally she's just a sad girl.
  • Straw Feminist: Her best friend Nicole is convinced that there are no good (black) men. Her beliefs have also rubbed off on Luna.
  • Tragic Villain: Her past relationships sucked.
  • Unusual Euphemism: Her "friendly sparring match" with Huey wasn't so friendly... for Huey, that is.
  • Wham Line: "I thought you were going to say that I was crazy and you didn't want to see me again like the others."
  • A Wolf Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: She's beautiful and charming on the surface, but is actually dogshit insane and violent.
  • Villainous Breakdown: Triggered by Robert lying to her, she becomes violently angry, but eventually just breaks down into tears.
  • Waif-Fu: Luna is also much stronger than she looks, as she is seen beating the crap out 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.
  • Woman Scorned: She rose hell when she found out Granddad lied to her about attending Fidel Castro's birthday party.
  • Yandere: And how.

    Jericho Freeman 

Jericho Freeman

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/jerico239483924_8157.png
Voiced by: Cedric the Entertainer

A relative of Robert Freeman. Jericho and his branch of the family fled from New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina, only to move into Robert's house and shamelessly mooch off of him.


  • Con Man: After mooching off of Granddad for a few months, he pretends that FEMA denied his compensation request so that he won't have to pay him or anyone back.
  • Fat Bastard / Fat Slob
  • Forgot to Pay the Bill: Really, Robert neglected to pay the utilities and phone bills in the hopes it would send the New Orleans Freemans packing.
  • Jerkass
  • Karma Houdini: Gets no comeuppance for leeching off Robert.
  • Lazy Bum: He spends all of his time waiting for FEMA to pay for his life and family instead of going out and actually getting a real job.
  • The Load
  • Lower-Class Lout: Jericho's family are stereotypical depictions of poor black people; lazy, entitled, uneducated, and having too many kids. Even Riley has a low opinion of them.
  • Ragin' Cajun: Lived in New Orleans when the hurricane hit.
  • The Tramp
  • Ungrateful Bastard: Doesn't seem to care one bit that Granddad let him and his family live in their house or gave him money to help them out.

    Catcher Freeman 

Catcher Freeman / Catcha Freeman / Tobias Lynchwater

Voiced by: Donald Faison

Catcher Freeman is the protagonist of "The Story of Catcher Freeman". According to folklore, Catcher was a freed slave who lived in the 1860s; but the exact details of his story are disputed by Robert, Ruckus, and Huey.


  • Action Hero / One-Man Army: According to Robert, Catcher was a militant who actively fought for slave liberation by killing countless slavers with guns, swords, and his bare hands. He also forms a slave militia to attack the Lynchwater plantation.
  • Beast Man / Nature Hero: Ruckus described Catcha as behaving like a wild animal, and used the natural environment to his advantage when tracking down runaway slaves; such as smelling their scents like a dog, ambushing them from the water like a shark, and jumping across trees like a monkey.
  • Boomerang Bigot / Happiness in Slavery: According to Ruckus, Catcha was a good slave like Tobias, both of them loyal to Massa Colonel. In fact, Catcha was so loyal that he recaptured fugitive slaves and returned them to their owners.
  • Composite Character:
  • Dumb Muscle / Manchild: Ruckus claims that Catcha was a simple-minded brute who spoke in the third-person, and was a virgin until he met Thelma.
  • Insistent Terminology / Meaningful Name: Ruckus claims that Catcher Freeman's name was actually Catcha Freeman (as in "catch a free man"), because he didn't free slaves, instead he recaptured runaways.
  • Memetic Badass: In-universe, Robert and Ruckus both claimed that Catcher was an awesome hero, though for different reasons. Subverted when Huey reveals that Catcher was actually based on Tobias Lynchwater of all people.
  • Messianic Archetype: Robert described him as being a charismatic leader who was a hero to all black slaves (except Tobias).
  • Posthumous Character: As he died somewhere in the 19th century, presumably of old age.
  • Scary Black Man: Robert and Ruckus both believed that he was a tall, muscular, and intimidating negro who could kick your ass.

    Thelma 

Thelma Freeman/Lynchwater

Voiced by: Crystal Scales

Thelma is Catcher's lover and later wife. She was a field slave who worked for Massa Colonel, but she eventually assisted in a slave revolt against him.


  • Action Girl: In all versions of the story she plays some role in the slave rebellion, though downplayed with Robert's and Ruckus' tales.
    • According to Robert, at the last minute she shoots Tobias with a pistol to save Catcher.
    • According to Ruckus, she commanded the other slaves to savagely finish off Massa and his men when they were about to surrender.
    • Huey reveals that Thelma personally led the other slaves to battle, and even fought in a sword duel against the Colonel himself.
  • Attempted Rape: According to Robert, Thelma was about to be raped by a slave catcher until Catcher stabbed him and saved her. Or according to Huey, Thelma saved herself by grabbing the slave catcher's gun and shooting him before he could rape her.
  • But Not Too Black: Thelma is rather light-skinned. Ruckus even claims that she's a mulatto, though this isn't confirmed or denied by Huey.
  • Chekhov's Gun: A rather literal example. In Robert's tale, Catcher gives Thelma a revolver to defend herself with, which is later discovered by Massa Colonel. In the climax, she uses the gun to kill Tobias before he could shoot Catcher.
  • Damsel in Distress: According to Robert, she had to be rescued by Catcher at least twice, first from some slave catchers, and later from Massa Colonel's forces.
  • Femme Fatale / The Vamp: According to Ruckus, she was an evil seductress who tricked Catcha by having sex with him in a barn, and then chained him down so that he couldn't stop the slave revolt.
  • The Ingenue: Robert stated that she was a pure and saintly woman, unlike the wicked and slutty jezebel that Ruckus claimed she was.
  • Love Interest: She serves as the girlfriend (and later the wife) of Catcher. But Huey reveals that she actually married Tobias.
  • Madonna–Whore Complex: Oddly enough, she's depicted both ways; a Madonna to Robert, and a Whore to Ruckus.
  • Posthumous Character: As she died somewhere in the 19th century, presumably of old age.

    Tobias 

Tobias Lynchwater

Voiced by: Donald Faison

A house slave who served as Massa Colonel's right-hand man. He has a one-sided crush on Thelma, but tries to warn the Colonel about the slave rebellion.


  • Anachronism Stew: Allegedly, Tobias wrote the first script for a motion picture, a few decades before they were even invented.
  • Boomerang Bigot / Happiness in Slavery: He's an "Uncle Tom" house slave who is loyal to his white master. It's no wonder why Ruckus would sympathize with him.
  • But Not Too Black: He seems to be the same shade of light brown as Thelma, which is justified due to being George Lynchwater's illegitimate mulatto son.
  • Butt-Monkey: He gets no respect from the other slaves (and according to Robert, not even from his own master). However, he somehow gets a happy ending in the true version recounted by Huey.
  • Dirty Coward: He's cowardly and somewhat of an opportunist. Also see Fake Ultimate Hero.
  • The Dragon: To Massa Colonel.
  • Fake Ultimate Hero: At the end of Huey's story, Tobias grabbed a rifle and tried to shoot Thelma, but accidentally killed Massa Colonel instead. Deciding to exploit the slaves' victory, he lied that he killed Massa on purpose, in order to win Thelma's love and the other slaves' admiration.
  • Only Sane Man: Ruckus claimed that he served this role among the other slaves, trying futilely to prevent their evil plot against Massa Colonel.
  • Posthumous Character: According to Robert and Ruckus, he was killed during the rebellion. According to Huey, he survived long enough to live as a free man.
  • Villainous Crush: He has unrequited feelings for Thelma, who dislikes him for being an Uncle Tom. In Huey's story, he managed to win over Thelma through a little deceit.
  • "Well Done, Son!" Guy: He tried selling his movie script to George Lynchwater in exchange for freedom, and perhaps to gain recognition as Lynchwater's son as well.

    Massa Colonel 

"Master/Massa" Colonel George Lynchwater

Voiced by: Jeff Bennett

A Confederate Army officer and plantation owner who was killed during a slave insurrection.


  • Affably Evil: In the version told by Huey, Lynchwater seemed like a somewhat okay and amiable fellow, despite being a slave owner. He even enjoyed Tobias's screenplay, regardless that he should technically have the slave hanged for being able to read and write.
  • Bad Boss: Well he was a slave owner after all. Especially according to Robert, as he had no problem with whipping his own loyal slave Tobias due to a misunderstanding.
  • Benevolent Boss: According to Ruckus, Lynchwater provided his slaves with good housing, great food, high living standards; and he didn't even force them do any work, instead he allowed them to goof off and have fun. But the moment he tries to politely request that they do some work, they decide to murder him.
  • Big Bad: Massa Colonel is the main villain and antagonist to Catcher Freeman in Robert's story.
  • Big Good: But Ruckus flips the above trope on its head, making the protagonist Catcha an ally and servant of the Colonel.
  • Colonel Badass: He holds this rank in the Confederate Army, and he seems to be no slouch at combat. In the true story, he gets in a sword fight with Thelma and tries to disarm her.
  • Luke, I Am Your Father: It's implied, and later confirmed, that Tobias is the illegitimate son of Mr. Lynchwater and a female slave.
  • Off with His Head!: In Robert's tale, he gets beheaded with a sword by Catcher.
  • Politically Incorrect Villain: Well he was a slave-owning planter in the Deep South. In Robert's version of the story, he wrongly flogs Tobias for something that wasn't his fault, and forces him to do hard labor with the "field niggers".
  • Posthumous Character: One detail that stayed (mostly) consistent through all three stories was that the Colonel was killed in action during the rebellion.

    Deborah Leevil 

Deborah Leevil

Voiced by: Debra Wilson

The evil CEO of the BET network, who plans to destroy black people.


  • Ax-Crazy: Completely kill-crazy.
  • Bad Boss: She murders two members of her board of directors for pushing her Berserk Button.
  • Berserk Button: If she suspects, even for an instant, that you're not being evil enough, she'll kill you very quickly.
  • Big Bad: Of the two-part BET saga at the end of Season 2.
  • Boomerang Bigot: She outright states that she wants to destroy her own race.
  • Card-Carrying Villain: She's only interested in green-lighting TV shows she deems to be evil enough.
  • Corrupt Corporate Executive: She runs the BET network like a supervillain organization.
  • Evil Laugh: She's got quite a sadistic laugh at that.
  • For the Evulz: She loves being evil. And she'll gleefully slaughter anyone who isn't evil enough for her tastes.
  • Insistent Terminology: She claims that BET doesn't stand for Black Entertainment Television, but Black Evil Television. Not knowing this costed one of her show producers their life.
  • Jerkass: She's a greedy, bigoted, homicidal maniac who kills over the slightest provocation.
  • Karma Houdini: She is never seen again after killing one of the board members, and threatening to do the same to Wedgie if he doesn't give her an evil television show. Given her career, it's unlikely she was ever punished.
  • Laughably Evil: She's a horribly sadistic woman who actively tries to destroy the health of her fellow black people, but she is so wildly over-the-top in her actions that it's hard not to laugh at her.
  • No Celebrities Were Harmed: A parody of real BET CEO Debra L. Lee and Dr. Evil.
  • Professional Butt-Kisser: She's a shameless kiss-up to her own boss, the President of Viacom (BET's parent company). Strangely enough, her boss isn't bloodthirsty at all, and he may not even be aware of the murders she commits, or her intent to deliberately destroy black people.
  • Sadist: Especially shown when she murders one of her board members, grinning and laughing while the blood splashed over her face.
  • Slasher Smile: She has two facial expressions: hateful scowling, and a psychotic grin that would make The Joker proud.
  • The Sociopath: She's a very greedy and hateful woman, who has no qualms about murdering her own employees.
  • Viewers Are Morons: Deborah and her coworkers strongly believe in this concept, so they use BET to keep their audiences perpetually stupefied.

    Wedgie Rudlin 

Wedgie Rudlin

Voiced by: Donald Faison

The President of Entertainment for BET. He produces a reality show starring Uncle Ruckus.


Season 3

    Barack Obama 

Barack Hussein Obama

Voiced by: Marlin Hill

Barack Obama is the 44th President of the United States. His election is the focus of "It's A Black President, Huey Freeman", and he also cameos in "The Fried Chicken Flu" and "It's Goin' Down" (voice only).


  • Celeb Crush: Sarah has a very obvious crush on him, much to Tom's dismay. Also see Celebrity Resemblance below.
  • Celebrity Resemblance: Barack Obama is noted to look a lot like Tom DuBois, except the former is more wealthy, powerful, and attractive. It would explain why Sarah voted for him.
  • Emergency Presidential Address: Parodied in "The Fried Chicken Flu", where all President Obama was talking about during the crisis is how he's perfectly safe in the White House bunker, not bothering to hide that things won't be so okay for the common people.
  • Hype Backlash: In-universe example: liberal Democrats are enthusiastic about the first African-American President, while conservative Republicans such as Ruckus are unhappy about him, and Huey is totally apathetic about the whole election.
    • Among the people shown supporting Obama (Robert, Riley, Tom, Sarah, Thugnificent, etc.), they all seem disappointed for various reasons (except for Sarah, who is pleased by Obama's charm alone).
  • Obstructive Bureaucrat: He calls Jack Flowers to tell him that he can't arrest Ed Wuncler I.
  • Take That!: The show has a decidedly negative view of Barack Obama, depicting his campaign as being nothing more than one big hype machine full of shallow promises.
    • And by extension, the Democratic voters (both black and white) who voted for Obama mostly because of his race and those aforementioned shallow promises.
    • But the show also mocked Republican voters who were convinced that Obama was a "Socialist Muslim Antichrist" who would bring about America's downfall.

    Wushung Residents 

Mr. Long-dou

Voiced by: Sab Shimono

A wealthy businessman from Wushung, China. He tries to settle Ed Wuncler I's massive debt to him by gambling with the outcome of a kickball game between Woodcrest and Wushung; if Wushung wins, then Long-dou will seize all of Wuncler's real estate in Woodcrest.


Ming Long-dou

Voiced by: Tiffany Espensen

Mr. Long-dou's granddaughter, who has been trained as an expert kickball player. Ming was Huey's rival and opponent in a kickball game.


  • Anti-Villain: Invoked; she tells Huey that since she was born, she was forced into a life of playing kickball, and will be sent to a prison camp if she fails this game. But this is subverted, see Manipulative Bitch.
  • Little Miss Badass: Ming has been painstakingly trained to do one thing: win at kickball.
  • Manipulative Bitch: It turns out that she made up that sob story, in order to trick Huey into going too easy on her. Huey is NOT amused to learn that she made a fool out of him.
  • Not So Different: Invoked. Ming manages to psych Huey out for a time by exploiting this trope.
  • Serious Business: Her entire life, her function, is kickball.
  • Tyke Bomb: Not to bring up kickball again, but say it with us: kickball.
  • Worthy Opponent: Huey comes to realize that he's finally up against somebody as furious, ruthless, and determined as he is.

    Jimmy Rebel 

James "Jimmy Rebel"

Voiced by: Nick Jameson

A white nationalist country singer known for almost exclusively recording anti-black music. Much to his surprise (but not ours), his biggest fan is a black man named Uncle Ruckus. The two become close friends anyways.


  • Aesop Amnesia: In the end, Jimmy states that he's not as racist as he used to be, and wants to sing about other subjects besides hating black people. But then Jimmy and Ruckus team up to write an anti-Mexican song.
  • Affably Evil: He may be extremely racist, although he has an otherwise genial personality.
  • Bigotry Exception: He makes an exception to his hatred of black people for his kindred-spirited friend, Uncle Ruckus. This puts Jimmy at odds with his own audience though. At the end of the episode, Jimmy admits that he doesn't really hate black people that much anymore. But he still hates Hispanic people though.
  • Deep South: Hails from a city there called Spokenhoke, which he calls "the Jewel of the South". It's also the location of the headquarters of his record company, Racist Records.
  • No Celebrities Were Harmed: He's based on a real racist country singer known as Johnny Rebel.

    The Hateocracy 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/rsz_stinkmeaner_3_theh_hateocracy_19.jpg
Left to right: Gripenasty, Crabmiser, and Pistofferson.

Stinkmeaner's old crew of equally nasty senior citizens, who roll into Woodcrest looking to kill the Freemans.


  • Avenging the Villain: Subverted, they weren't really moved by Stinkmeaner's death. The thin veneer of "revenge" was just an excuse to attack the Freemans for the fun of it.
  • Ax-Crazy: They want to murder an old man and his two little boys for the thrill of it.
  • Badass Crew: The three old codgers whoop heaps of ass and kill Bushido Brown. The only thing that can defeat them? Jail.
  • Badass Grandpa: Despite being really old, they seem to be far stronger and more agile than most people much younger than them.
  • Badass in a Nice Suit: Crabmiser wears a full suit, though Pistofferson and Gripenasty are also well dressed.
  • Blood Knight: They really enjoy fighting and violence.
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: They beat Uncle Ruckus until he's hospitalized. They later prove to be more than a match for the Freemans, so they have to hire Bushido Brown to protect them.
  • Evil Old Folks: A whole trio of them!
  • Expies: Each of them are based on characters from classic black sitcoms.
  • For the Evulz: As they explain, they weren't looking to avenge Stinkmeaner, they just wanted to fuck with any unfortunate victim.
  • Jerkasses: What do you expect when these three assholes are the closest thing that Stinkmeaner has ever had to being a circle of friends? Even then they admit that they don't actually like each other, due to their ambivalence towards Stinkmeaner's death.
  • Knight of Cerebus: The Hateocracy are depicted a little less humorously than Stinkmeaner, and they all prove to be among the most dangerous enemies of the Freeman family. Just look at the sheer malice on their faces when they beat two little boys to a pulp.
  • Mundane Solution: They may be formidable fighters. But even they aren't outside the law and someone in the neighborhood had enough common sense to call the police who instantly come and arrest them.
  • Nice Hats: Each of them wear hats.
  • Psychopathic Manchildren: Together with Stinkmeaner, these old geezers are really just overgrown delinquents who delight in causing trouble and harassing other people just for fun.
  • Sadists: Like Stinkmeaner, they're delighted by the suffering of other people.
  • Sociopaths: And of course, they're utterly devoid of love for anyone, not even for each other.
    Gripenasty: Just 'cause Stinkmeaner was our nigga, don't mean we gave a shit about his ass!
  • Terrible Trio: Though they were originally a Terrible Quartet, when Stinkmeaner was still alive and part of the original gang.
  • Underestimating Badassery: Riley is skeptically amused by the idea that a gang of old people could be so deadly, until he gets his ass kicked by Gripenasty.
  • Walking the Earth: After their dickish behavior got them kicked out of the nursing home they met in, they wandered the world for ten years together before splitting up and eventually reuniting.
  • Would Hurt a Child: They have no qualms about trying to kill children. George and Esmeralda even attacked Huey and Riley at their school, savagely beating both of them within inches of their lives.
  • Vitriolic Best Buds: Though in a twisted way that only psychopaths such as themselves could understand. All four of them were misanthropes who hated everyone in the world, but hated each other slightly less, so they bonded by bullying other people. The surviving three weren't actually interested in avenging their fallen acquaintance Stinkmeaner, they just needed an excuse to harass the Freemans.

"Lord" Rufus Crabmiser

Voiced by: Aries Spears

The leader of the gang, he's the bearded man wearing a black hat.


  • Badass Beard: Crabmiser has an old sailor's beard.
  • Badass Grandpa: Even more so than his accomplices; during the fight against Bushido Brown, Rufus dodged most of Bushido's attacks, and he was the one to land the killing blow on him.
  • Badass in a Nice Suit
  • Expy: Rufus Crabmiser is based on Fred Sanford.
  • Faux Affably Evil: He is the most well-spoken of the group, and is shown to be capable of polite conversation. He even shows his respect to Bushido Brown before their fight. However, it is very clear that he, like his comrades, is a cruel and hateful person.
  • Improbable Weapon User: Crabmiser uses a weaponized lobster cage with razor-sharp blades, which he swings and throws around like a flail. He uses it to behead Bushido Brown.
  • Nice Hat
  • Straw Nihilist: Rufus Crabmiser gives a speech to Granddad to this effect, using crab fishing as a metaphor.
    Crabmiser: "Fascinating creature, the crab. Got that hard exterior, but he ain't really dangerous, except to another crab. Dumb as all hell, can't even walk straight. Matter of fact, the only thing a crab is good for is holding back other crabs. A crab don't wanna see another crab make it. Crab is like, 'If I'm gonna die, we all gonna die.' I admire that. We all gotta die sometimes, might as well help each other get there. I mean, that's what you did to Stinkmeaner. Isn't that right, Robert Freeman?"
    (Robert panics, and then Crabmiser attacks him.)
  • Villain Respect: He considers Bushido Brown to be a Worthy Opponent.
    Crabmiser: Ah, the legendary Bushido Brown, the greatest black karate man to ever live.
  • Villains Out Shopping: Crabmiser enjoys crab fishing in his spare time, though when he's introduced doing this, he's also trying to kill Robert.

    Winston Jerome 

Winston Jerome

Voiced by: Affion Crockett

A gay black playwright/screenwriter. In "Pause", he recruits Granddad to act in one of his productions, but he is oblivious to Winston's plan to have sex with him.


  • All Gays Love Theater: And that's just one item of his checklist of gay stereotypes.
  • Armored Closet Gay: Winston keeps insisting that he's a heterosexual Christian man, until the end when he admits that he really is just trying to find men to sleep with.
  • Camp Gay: No man can be more effeminate than him.
  • Creepy Crossdresser: He's known for playing a Madea-like character. He claims that God and Jesus told him to make plays and movies while dressed like a woman.
  • No Celebrities Were Harmed: A spoof of Tyler Perry.
  • Queer People Are Funny: Pretty much the basis of most of the jokes about him, even more so than Gangstalicious.
  • Sinister Minister: His theater troupe is like a quasi-Christian cult, which requires its members to live in a compound, and sever any ties to their old lives.
  • Uncle Tomfoolery: His plays and movies make use of a lot of black stereotype humor.

    Booty Warrior 

"The Booty Warrior"

Voiced by: Carl Jones

When Tom and Ruckus take Huey, Riley, Butch, and four other boys on a visit to jail to scare them straight, they meet an inmate who is obsessed with anal rape. In other words, the personification of Tom's worst nightmares!


    Lando 

Lando "Freeman"

Voiced by: Gerald Johnson

A gardener and landscaper who claims to be the illegitimate son of Robert Freeman and one of his ex-girlfriends (Marietta). Lando and Robert set out to find the truth (and bond together if necessary).


  • Butt-Monkey: Not surprisingly, he gets into quite a bit of mishaps when he moves in with the Freemans.
  • Luke, I Am Your Father: Billy Dee Williams (the actor who played Lando Calrissian) reveals himself to actually be Lando's father.
  • Luke, You Are My Father: He claims to be the bastard son of Robert and Marietta, born circa 1980. According to a DNA test however, Lando is in fact NOT the son of Robert Freeman.
  • Meaningful Name: Lando sharing a name with Star Wars character Lando Calrissian is noted, while Lando mentions that around the time he was conceived, his mother and father watched The Empire Strikes Back. In fact, the actor who played Lando Calrissian is his real father.
  • Nice Guy: Overall, he's a very friendly guy. However, during his journey to discover his father, he's brought into conflict with some other people (especially Uncle Ruckus and TV host Steve Wilkos).

    Ebony Brown 

Ebony Brown

Voiced by: Gina Torres

Robert's Girl of the Week in "The Lovely Ebony Brown". Unlike Robert's previous girlfriends, Ebony is a very pleasant woman and not bat-shit crazy at all. In the end though, Robert's paranoid insecurities lead them to splitting up anyways.


    Ruckus Family 
The long-estranged family of Uncle Ruckus.
  • Big, Screwed-Up Family: They're so extremely and horribly dysfunctional, that even the Freeman family note how much better they themselves seem compared to the Ruckuses.

Nelly Ruckus

Voiced by: Luenell Campbell

The mother of Mister Ruckus, and the paternal grandmother of Uncle Ruckus. She's just as ancient as she is hateful.


  • Abusive Parents: She raised Mister to be an asshole much like herself. She's also an Abusive Grandparent, as she smacks Uncle, and attacks one of his younger brothers with a knife.
  • The Chain of Harm: She's responsible for how her son turned out, and in turn her grandson. It's not discussed, but it's most likely that her childhood was nothing good either.
  • Death Seeker: For most of her life, she's been waiting to die of old age. Her wish is finally granted when she passes away while sitting in Robert's living room chair. Her only regret is that she was outlived by her hated son.
  • Evil Old Folks: Possibly well over 100 years old when she died.
  • Jerkass: Uncle notes that she's even nastier than Mister, and that's really saying something.
  • Knife Nut: She intends to die in Robert's chair despite his dismay. So she threatens everyone with a straight razor, and slashes the hand of one of the Darrel/Darryl twins.
  • Misanthrope Supreme: She hates just about everyone around her, including her entire family.
  • The Sociopath: She's very open about her hatred and apathy for all people. Not to mention how ruthlessly and unlovingly she "raised" her son.
  • Straw Nihilist: She rants on about how she thinks life is nothing but cruel and meaningless, which is why she doesn't want to live any longer.

Mister Ruckus

Voiced by: Don Curry

The father of Uncle Ruckus. Uncle hates his dad with a passion (and with good reason).


  • Abusive Parents: To extreme levels. Mister Ruckus was an angry drunkard who had frequently beaten a much younger Uncle Ruckus for little or no reason. Eventually, he personally dragged and threw his own son out of the house.
  • Berserk Button / Hair-Trigger Temper: The mere existence of his son Uncle Ruckus seems to be this for him, and often took the slightest excuse to violently strike him.
  • Catchphrase: "Nigga, did I just catch you [doing something]?!" (slap)
  • The Chain of Harm: He learned well from his mother on how to mistreat his own kids.
  • Evil Old Folks: Old age has not watered down his asshole behavior. However, his own mother is even older and more evil than he is.
  • Freudian Excuse: He was abused by his own asshole mother, and also by racist white men.
  • Jerkass: Big time. Despite having a tragic backstory of his own, not once is he shown as being redeemable.
  • Jerkass Has a Point: As awful as he is, he correctly points out the fact that his entire immediate family are, in one way or another, completely subservient to white people... and it pisses him off.
  • Karmic Death: When he tries to hit Uncle one last time, he succumbs to an old back injury; causing him to accidentally fall into his mother's grave, while breaking his own neck in the process.
  • Knight of Cerebus: His horrible abuse of Uncle Ruckus is still darkly humorous, but yet also quite invokedcrushingly tragic at the same time.
  • Last Disrespects: He attends his mom's funeral, because it's the event he's been gladly anticipating for his whole life.
  • Misanthrope Supreme: He really doesn't like other people at all. He may not even care for himself, as his behavior suggests a lot of self-loathing.
  • Politically Incorrect Villain: Mister is a racist old man, though at heart he's probably another "hates everybody" misanthrope like Nelly or Stinkmeaner.
  • "The Reason You Suck" Speech: Lays a cruel but accurate verbal beatdown on his family during their dinner, particularly Bunny and Uncle Ruckus:
    Mister: Shut your ass up, Bunny! I'm sick of you talkin' about that goddamn white man all the time. Name one of them who ever did shit for any of you. Huh?
    (Bunny puts her head down in shame)
    Mister: Can't do it, can you? Look at what you did. All my kids is some damn Uncle Toms.
    (Looks at his kids and finally addresses Uncle)
    Mister: And you're the worst! A black fool who hates himself so much, he can't even see what's in front of him in the mirror. Just another black nigga like the rest of us.
    • Later in the climax, Mister himself is at the receiving end of a speech like this (see "Calling the Old Man Out" in Uncle Ruckus' section).
  • The Sociopath: What else do you call someone who willingly throws away their own innocent child, without any hint of hesitation or remorse?
  • Tough Love: The Darrel/Darryl brothers suspect that Mister's abuse could have been his own twisted way of toughening them up for a tough world.
  • Tragic Villain: Considering how hateful his mother is, it's small wonder the man has his fair share of problems.

Bunny Ruckus

Voiced by: Star Jones

The mother of Uncle Ruckus. She loves her children, but also loves white people more than her own race.


  • Accentuate the Negative: Here's an example when she tried to teach history to Uncle:
    Uncle: Mama, who was George Washington Carver?
    Bunny: He's the man responsible for more peanut allergy deaths than anyone who ever lived.
  • Adults Are Useless: She may have loved all three of her sons, but was utterly worthless as any sort of proper role model.
  • Boomerang Bigot: While Bunny doesn't hate black people, she still thinks that they're inferior to white people. This helped influence Uncle's warped worldview.
  • Catchphrase: (After Mister slaps Uncle) "Lord have mercy, my baby!"
  • Dark-Skinned Blonde: She dyed her hair blonde, and eventually got blue eye contacts to match.
  • Karma Houdini: She gets off scot-free for making her son racist, and being a useless bystander to the abuse her husband suffered, which led to him taking it out on Uncle.
  • May–December Romance: After her husband's death, Bunny decides to engage her significantly younger white boyfriend.
  • Useless Bystander Parent: Responsible for Uncle Ruckus' internalized racism, and also not providing her husband with emotional support after the abuse he suffered from his mom and white men, and at the same time, failed to stop her husband's subsequent abuse of his son.

Darrell and Darryl Ruckus

Voiced by: Gary Anthony Williams

Uncle's younger twin brothers. Despite growing up in such an unhappy family, they became functioning members of society.


  • Alliterative Names: In fact, their names are homophones only differentiated by a few letters.
  • Always Identical Twins: Their appearances are only differentiated by their clothing.
  • Nice Guys: They're always very polite and respectful, despite the stressful family drama around them.
  • Only Sane Men: They're the only ones in the Ruckus family who didn't grow up to be jerks and/or self-racists. Although their dad accuses them of being "Uncle Toms".
  • Token Good Teammate: At any rate, they seem to be the least pathetic excuses for human beings in their family.
  • Where Da White Women At?: One of them is married to a white woman, something which Bunny is proud of. Though considering the way she raised them with the "white = better" mentality, this was probably an inevitable subconscious result of their upbringing.

    Jack Flowers 

Agent Jack Flowers

Voiced by: Artt Butler

A federal government agent who is assigned to stop a mysterious terrorist plot in Woodcrest.


    Dan the Security Man 

Daniel "Dan the Security Man" Stuckey

Voiced by: Louis Lombardi

A private security guard who worked at the Wuncler Tower. Ed I, Ed III, and Rummy conspired to murder Dan with a bomb, so they can paint him as a martyr and profit from it.


  • Asshole Victim: Almost became one. Lampshaded by Ed I, who calls him a "cocksucker" and a "waste of usable organs", although he planned to give him posthumous good publicity (see Fake Ultimate Hero).
  • Catchphrase: "Eat my ass!"
  • Fake Ultimate Hero: Ed Wuncler I planned to make Dan look like a heroic martyr who was killed by terrorism, so that he can make millions of dollars through a multimedia franchise glorifying him.
  • Fat Bastard: Looks to be just as obese as Uncle Ruckus (who he gets in a fight with), and has a similarly unpleasant personality.
  • Fat Idiot: He's really not as much an expert in politics or business as he arrogantly believes himself to be.
  • Hate Sink: An odd play on the trope from Ed I, as killing Dan in a fake terrorist attack would make him into a "hero" who died doing his job; and due to how much of a fat whiny asshole he really was, no one would personally care if he is dead. Basically he'll make a good martyr, because dying is the best thing Dan could ever do.
  • Hypocritical Humor: He calls a conservative radio talk show to complain about President Obama, claiming that he'll redistribute money to people who "just sit around getting fat and lazy". Guess what he was doing at the same time — munching on a hamburger while watching TV on the job.
  • Jerkass: He's very rude and has an (undeservedly) large ego.
  • Poor Communication Kills: He was just trying to tell Ruckus that the password to open the front door was "Eat my ass", but Ruckus was confused and irritated by this apparent irreverence, so he stomped him in the nuts.
  • Small Name, Big Ego: Even he deluded himself into thinking he's more important than he actually is; when calling the aforementioned radio show, he makes himself out to be a brave trooper "protecting the front lines" of American capitalism, and thinks he can become just as filthy rich as his employer Ed Wuncler. When really, he's no more than just a lazy rent-a-cop.
  • Straw Character: Another unflattering stereotype of conservative Republicans.

"Boss" Willona

Voiced by: Jennifer Lewis

A businesswoman and mobster who runs a hair salon for black women. She sells an explosive compound created by the Freemans as hair gel.


  • Corrupt Corporate Executive: She knowingly sells poisonous and explosive chemicals as hair care products. Her excuse? She at least places warning labels on the boxes.
  • Legitimate Businessmen's Social Club: She claims that her business is "perfectly legitimate", but later admits that it's "not completely legitimate".
  • Stuff Blowing Up: During a confrontation in the desert, Willona accidentally ignites some explosive gases that filled an RV, causing herself and her henchman to get blown up.

    Geraldine 

Geraldine

Voiced by: Jennifer Lewis

An elderly woman from a nursing home who gives Robert a job of being a male "escort" (prostitute) to lonely younger women.

    Vanessa

Reverend Sturdy Harris

Voiced by: Dennis Haysbert

A civil rights leader who organized one of the Freedom Rides in 1961. He met Robert when he accidentally boarded their bus, forcing him to stay along for the dangerous road trip. Appears in "Freedom Ride or Die".


  • The Ace: He is a graduate student from Fisk University, captain of its football team, charismatic to his followers, and a huge man who is built like a tank.
  • Badass Baritone: His voice is fittingly deep for a man of his size and courage.
  • Badass Pacifist Preacher: During a race riot in Birmingham, Alabama, he was able to physically defeat several attackers without injuring them.
  • Death Seeker: Robert accused him of caring more about martyring himself for the cause, rather than the cause itself.
  • The Determinator: Despite facing all the racist mob violence and spending some jail time, he's determined to keep defying segregation no matter what.
  • Fearless Fool: Sturdy never hesitates from taking risks, and he never worries about danger.
  • Gentle Giant: Sturdy is a very tall, wide, and strong man who never uses his muscles to inflict pain on anyone. Well, aside from manhandling Robert to force him to stay with his group.
  • Made of Iron: He's easily able to resist several blows from an angry mob due to his huge and muscular frame.
  • Suicidal Pacifism: Willingly faces racist mobs and trigger-happy police with no clear goal.
  • What Happened to the Mouse?: During the episode's frame story (a present-day documentary consisting of interviews of Robert and the other Freedom Riders), Sturdy is nowhere to be seen, except in the flashbacks to 1961. Though unconfirmed, it's possible that he's deceased.
  • You Can't Fight Fate: Sturdy insists that God has given Robert the duty to help liberate his fellow Negroes, even though Robert has no will to risk his life for it.

    Siri 

Siri

Voiced by: Grey DeLisle

An application that came with Robert's iPhone. This Siri is far smarter than it should be, and menaces Robert.


  • A.I. Is a Crapshoot: She's scarily intelligent, malevolent, and powerful for an iOS application.
  • Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: She stops being helpful after a while.
  • Driven to Suicide: An attempted murder-suicide. After framing Robert as a jihadist, she orders a drone strike on his house, so they'll live on as spirits. But fortunately Siri is the only casualty.
  • Hollywood Hacking: She can take over any piece of technology, which she uses to spy on Robert and harass him into "loving" her back.
  • Love Makes You Evil: Well, creepy and one-sided love anyways.
  • Our Spirits Are Different: While Robert is trying to sleep, he sees Siri in the form of an ethereal blonde woman.
  • Ridiculously Human Robots: A little too human in fact. She even claims to have a soul.
  • Stalker with a Crush: She develops an unhealthy obsession with Robert and tries to force him into loving her, up to and including getting a wedding.
  • Yandere: And she'll use any dirty trick to make sure he can't ignore her. It ranges from draining Robert's bank account, posting disgusting photos on his Facebook page, to framing him as an Al-Qaeda terrorist.

    Stinkmeaner Clone 

Clone of Colonel H. Stinkmeaner

Voiced by: Cedric Yarbrough

The clone of Colonel H. Stinkmeaner, created in an illegal underground laboratory. The original Stinkmeaner posthumously gives him instructions to start a new Nigga Moment with Robert Freeman.


  • Avenging the Villain: Subverted. The clone never knew the original Stinkmeaner, he just thinks that his only purpose in life is to annoy Robert Freeman like his predecessor did. After the clone is defeated, Robert decides to make peace with him:
    Stinkmeaner's Clone: "Well sure, all you had to do was ask. I don't even know you, I'm just the clone."
  • Badass Grandpa / Handicapped Badass: The clone also seems to be blind, however he has enhanced strength and martial arts skills. Although Robert trains hard enough to defeat the clone in a rematch.
  • Born as an Adult: The clone is confused as to why he's an old man biologically, despite only being a few years old chronologically.
  • Cloning Blues: Subverted, as he doesn't really feel any different knowing he's a clone, only that he's alive and the other guy's dead.
  • Evil Is Hammy / Laughably Evil: Just like the original!
  • Jerkass: Just as mean as the first Stinkmeaner.
  • Rooting for the Empire: In-universe example. Stinkmeaner's clone gets a large fan base who support his side of the Nigga Moment against Robert.

    Walter Sweetlove

  • Attention Whore: He learned his media strategies from none other than Rollo Goodlove himself.
  • Greed: He's really more concerned about money than politics.
  • Straight Gay: He's homosexual but not a walking stereotype.
  • Straw Character: Another straw activist in the same vein as Rollo.

    Philbert Slowlove 

Philbert Slowlove

Voiced by: Tommy Lister

A mental disability activist who, after learning that Riley is a "special needs" kid, note  asks Riley to join a footrace with other "special" children.


  • Berserk Button: He's furious whenever Riley says the word "retarded".
  • Ditzy Genius: Philbert seems to have some kind of mental handicap or illness himself, but he's smart enough to lead a special interest organization (and much like Walter and Rollo, he knows how to extort people). He's also an amazing artist, able to draw a very elaborate sketch in just a few minutes.
  • Greed: He's really more concerned about money than politics.
  • Ink-Suit Actor: Has a very uncanny resemblence to Tommy Lister.
  • Manchild: His preference for Strawberry Milk makes him seem like one, especially when he's drinking it from small milk boxes.
  • Scary Black Man: He's a huge and buff negro who can be quite scary when he's angry.
  • Straw Character: Yet another straw activist.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: He really likes Strawberry Milk.
  • Would Hurt a Child: Ruthlessly grabs Riley by the collar and throws him to the ground, leaving him at the mercy of several other special needs kids after Riley decides he doesn't wanna be in the race anymore and calling the other kids retards.
