    R. Kelly's Lawyer 

Robert Kelly's Lawyer
Voiced by: Adam West

A defense attorney who was hired to defend R. Kelly from charges of sexual contact with a minor (urinating on a teen girl).



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.

  • At Least I Admit It: When Huey calls her on being a lazy hoe, she agrees with him, also recognizing that Granddad is oblivious to her flaws even though it’s obvious what she’s in it for.
  • Ambiguously Brown: She has blonde hair and light skin, but speaks with an ebonic accent. Riley calls her a "fake-ass Mariah Carey", the latter of whom is mixed.
  • 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. She recognizes her faults, but doesn’t make much of an effort to change her ways because she likes the lifestyle Robert afforded her. She also reverts back to her old ways after claiming she’s going to better herself.
  • 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.
  • Manipulative Bitch: She utilizes crocodile tears to garner sympathy from Robert in order to manipulate him into thinking that Riley and Huey are treating her poorly without a reason.
  • 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.

    Health Inspector 

The Health Inspector

Voiced by: Terry Crews

An imaginary villain who haunts Tom DuBois' dreams. He's a prison inmate who is constantly trying to rape him.



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.
  • Psycho Ex-Boyfriend: To Gangstalicious, whom he wants to murder after their falling out.
  • Straight Gay: In contrast to Gangstalicious, who gradually becomes more Camp Gay.

    Mr. Uberwitz 

Mr. Uberwitz

Voiced by: Judge Reinhold

Huey's teacher at J. Edgar Hoover Elementary, who helps him produce a school Christmas play.

  • Nice Guy: He's very polite and genuinely interested in helping out Huey with his project.
  • Political Overcorrectness: He is "culturally sensitive" and gives a lecture on Kwanzaa to his bored students, much to their apathy.
  • Straw Character: He's a well-meaning but clueless white liberal. Although, he is willing to sacrifice his job so that Huey's performance can be played as Huey intended, which shows some growth on his part.

    Martin Luther King Jr. 

Martin Luther King Jr.

An iconic leader of the Civil Rights Movement. In "Return of the King", a hypothetical scenario depicts him surviving the assassination attempt in 1968, becoming comatose until he wakes up in 2000.

  • Actual Pacifist: Just like he was in real life. However, sticking to his pacifist ideals in the aftermath of 9/11 results in him being branded as a traitor by Fox News.
  • All Just a Dream: The entire episode he appears in turns out to have been imagined by Huey.
  • Alternate History: Within that dream, it speculates what would happen if King wasn't murdered in 1968, instead getting incapacitated for 32 years, and then waking up and reacting to a whole new world...
  • Break the Cutie: He winds up getting his entire world-view and faith in humanity shattered by over the course of his episode, culminating in him having all his hope for a post-racial America shattered and giving up on everything entirely, spending the last years of his life disillusioned and miserable.
  • Fish out of Temporal Water: After awakening from his three-decade coma, King has a great deal of difficulty with catching up and adapting to the culture of 21st century America.
  • Grumpy Old Man: King becomes increasingly disillusioned, frustrated, and pessimistic over the course of the episode. Read below for more info.
  • Historical Domain Character: Though his real-life death gets subverted for the sake of this episode's story.
  • "The Reason You Suck" Speech: While attending a party filled with many annoying black guests, King finally loses his patience and begins a very fiery rant, scathingly criticizing their behavior.
  • Screw This, I'm Outta Here: After delivering that rant, King has lost all his hope for a post-racial America, so he spends the last years of his life in Vancouver, Canada.

    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.

  • Always Someone Better: Robert looks at all of Moe's photos with prominent African-American historical figures with resentment. He also ended up in a relationship with Maybelline, a woman Robert loved back in the day.
  • 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.
  • Been There, Shaped History: Like Robert, Moe has interacted with many Civil Rights leaders and African-American historical figures, with the only difference between them being that these aforementioned figures seem to respect Moe.
  • 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: 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, telling him to sit back down when he happens to get up out of his chair, and a pleading glance made until the exact moment Robert agrees to them. And a final laughing fit saved until after Robert received his "inheritance".



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.

    Dewey Jenkins 

Dewey "Obababa-ooo, Mamma-say, Mamma-sah, Mamma-ma-cu-sah" Jenkins

Voiced by: Austin Williams

Dewey is Cairo's new best friend after Huey moved to Woodcrest.

  • Dirty Coward: For all of his disrespectful talk towards the Freeman brothers, Dewey is shown to be a coward when confronted by one of them. He is seen running away from Riley while his best friend, Cairo, is fighting Huey at Moe's funeral.
  • Dreadlock Rasta: Wears dreadlocks and fancies himself as a revolutionary. Keyword: "fancies".
  • Foil: He's this to Huey. While both are/were Cairo's best friends and are self-proclaimed revolutionaries, their similarities stop there. Dewey has a shallow view of what a revolutionary should be (i.e. reading poems and wearing sandals, head wraps, and capris) while Huey is more focused on standing up for human rights and less on attire. Also, Dewey is shown to be more cowardly than Huey. While Huey has no problem punching Cairo when his grandfather is insulted, Dewey runs away when confronted by Riley. His attacks against the Freeman brothers are only verbal, while Huey is more quiet and willing to get physical.
  • Giftedly Bad: He thinks he's good at poetry but is actually terrible. His poem about death at Moe's funeral is met with Riley booing him, Huey calling him corny, and the rest of the audience looking unamused.
  • Jerkass: He acts condescending towards the Freeman brothers because of them moving to a predominantly White neighborhood and mockingly calls them "the Hilton sisters". He's especially condescending towards Huey for not fitting his own superficial standards of being a revolutionary.
  • Malcolm Xerox: Like Huey, Dewey is a self-described revolutionary, except he's more shallow in his approach. He believes being "down wit' the struggle" involves reading poetry, wearing capris, headwraps and sandals, and even goes as far as to become a Muslim — a reference to Black nationalist Muslim groups like the Nation of Islam — and yet he doesn't even know the basic Islamic greeting. note  Even worse, he mispronounces it as "salami, eggs and bacon", two of which are typically pork products, which are strictly prohibited by Islam.
  • No True Scotsman: Dewey criticizes Huey's status as a revolutionary because he doesn't have any poems and is not wearing sandals, headwraps, and capri pants.
  • Overly-Long Name: Subverted. He introduces himself as Dewey "Obababa-ooo, Mamma-say, Mamma-sah, Mamma-ma-cu-sah" Jenkins, but his name is just Dewey Jenkins.
  • Rebound Best Friend: He's this to Cairo after Huey moves to Woodcrest.

    "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.

  • 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.
  • Not Afraid to Die: He reassures Huey that he's made peace with his execution.

Season 2


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.


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...

  • Advice Backfire: Constantly given by her female friend, Nicole. Later in the episode, it becomes so outrageous that it seems Nicole is intentionally giving her bad advice to push her into homicidal rages, either out of loneliness that Luna manages to get dates or simple sadism.
  • 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: Any time she thinks that a man has wronged her somehow, whether it's physical or emotional abuse, or just being lied to.
  • Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: She's beautiful and charming on the surface, but is actually dogshit insane and violent.
  • 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 Cat 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.
  • Driven to Suicide: Her friend Nicole inadvertantly causes her kill herself.
  • 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, which in some cultures is associated with causing madness, 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.
  • 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 Naive: 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.
  • Toxic Friend Influence: Luna hangs onto Nicole's every word, even if she tells her to kill Granddad, or herself.
  • Tragic Villain: Her past relationships sucked.
  • Unusual Euphemism: Her "friendly sparring match" with Huey wasn't so friendly... for Huey, that is.
  • 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.
  • 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."
  • 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
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: Aside from Grandad throwing hi out, he 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.

    Mr. Petto 

Mr. Joe Petto

Voiced by: Fred Willard

A hapless teacher at Huey's and Riley's school, who is woefully unequipped to interact with his new rush of black students. He is Huey's and Jazmine's teacher in the comics, but Riley's teacher (for one episode) in the show; in both cases, he blunders through dealing with his students in ways that increasingly annoy them.

  • Apathetic Teacher: Huey perceives him that way, thinking of him as a product of a school system that seeks to ostracize their non-white students. While he's not entirely wrong, it's only because he has absolutely no idea what he's doing, and he's at least less blatantly prejudiced than their principal.
  • Chuck Cunningham Syndrome: When the focus in the series shifted away from the inner city kids living in an environment that didn't understand them and more onto the kids themselves, Petto completely disappeared from the strip.
  • Demoted to Extra: While not a major character by any means in the comic, he had a decent presence in its early years. Unlike Cindy, he was unable to turn that into more than a single appearance on the show.
  • Dumbass Has a Point: He genuinely doesn’t understand why usage of the word "nigga" would create tensions (and thus why nobody should say it), but he isn't wrong that people like Riley uses the word all the time since the word is nowadays used far more often as just another slang for "friend" or "homie" (which Mr. Potter meant when he said it) than in actual hatefilled context.
  • Innocent Bigot: He's far less racist than he is simply an idiot. His only experience with black people is through watching Blaxploitation movies (though he at least seems aware that this is probably not a good idea), and his every attempt to connect with his black students comes off as patronizing at best, ridiculous and insensitive at worst. Taken to the extreme in the show, where he throws Riley's flippant use of "nigga" back in his face and seems to have absolutely no idea why it would be a problem.
  • Innocently Insensitive: Often, though best shown when he meets Jazmine and spends the entire strip struggling to ask whether or not she's black.

    Ann Coulter 

Ann Coulter

Voiced by: Jill Talley

A far-right media personality who appears in "The S-Word" as Rollo Goodlove's adversary in numerous debates. It turns out that she's a completely different person in private and is collaberating with Rollo to gain publicity for the both of them.

  • All Girls Want Bad Boys: She comments to Rollo how she had to bail her lover, Abdul, out of jail for "like the 10th time".
  • Blonde Republican Sex Kitten: Subverted. She publicly portrays herself as a Republican, but disagrees with those views in private and is only pretending to be one for book sales. She even considers stripping as an alternative if her career as a far-right media personality fails.
  • Clingy Jealous Girl: She accuses her boyfriend, Abdul, of cheating on her and angrily confronts him when she sees him talking to another woman. Whether or not he's cheating on her is unknown.
  • Friendly Enemy: She's this to Rollo. Justified since both of them aren't actually passionate about their supposed causes: they both play games for money.
  • Jerkass Façade: Outwardly, she's a nasty bigot. In private, she's a pretty chill, albeit shit-talking woman.
  • Only in It for the Money: Money is her main motive for pretending to be a Blonde Republican Sex Kitten. Otherwise, she'll consider becoming a stripper if that fails.
    Huey: Are you even a Republican?
    Ann: Hell no! You think I like going out there, and saying this ridiculous shit?
    Huey: Then why do it?
    Ann: Cause a bitch got books to sell; that's why. Ain't no money in trying save the world. All I know is they better not stop this war in Iraq, or I might have to start stripping.
  • Pretty Fly for a White Guy: In private, Ann speaks ebonics and has a black boyfriend.
  • Punch-Clock Villain: She only acts like a right-wing nutjob and nemesis to Rollo to get some "redneck money."
  • Straw Hypocrite: In-universe, she's portrayed as a fake conservative who doesn't actually believe any of the right-wing propaganda she regularly spews out for her audience.
  • Where da White Women At?: She appears to have a black love interest named Abdul.

    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 sometime 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 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 Heroine: 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.
  • Generation Xerox: Huey seems to inherit Thelma's eyes, revolutionary spirit, and swordsmanship.
  • 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 sometime in the 19th century, presumably of old age.


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.
  • Generation Xerox: Robert seems to have inherited his cowardly, opportunistic, and sellout tendencies from Tobias.
  • Humiliation Conga: Robert's interpretation of him goes through this throughout his story. First, he's whipped several times by Massa Colonel, his idea to buy his way to freedom gets shat upon by the other slaves, gets rejected by Thelma, then slapped around by the other slaves when he tries to talk them out of the revolt, enviously witnesses Thelma and Catcher kiss, gets spit on by Thelma, watches Massa Colonel get beheaded, before finally being shot by the woman he tried to court.
  • 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 after all. 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.
  • Suspiciously Specific Denial: In Ruckus's story he tells Tobias: "you've always been like a son to me, except I would never ever lay with your black jungle bunny momma." So of course in Huey's story he's actually Tobias' father.

    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.
  • Hate Sink: Weirdly inverted: she is nothing but vile, but still very amusing.
  • Insistent Terminology: She claims that BET doesn't stand for Black Entertainment Television, but Black Evil Television. Not knowing this cost 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.

  • Boomerang Bigot: He hates black people as much as Ruckus does.
  • Bystander Syndrome: When Deborah has one of her employees executed, Wedgie seems horrified, but he doesn't intervene out of fear for his own life.
  • Corrupt Corporate Executive: Not only is his boss one of these, but he kidnaps a geneticist and (tries to) torture him into "correcting" a DNA test, in order to trick Ruckus into thinking he's white again (Ruckus almost killed himself over his black heritage, which would've ended the show prematurely).
  • The Dragon: To Deborah Leevil. Though it seems that he continues working for her under fear for his own life.
  • Even Evil Has Standards: Zigzagged. It doesn't stop him from doing his job of making BET's shows insulting towards their target audience, but he is still clearly afraid of Deborah's murderous behavior, and despite being a Boomerang Bigot, his "good taste" has him make exceptions for people like Gregory Hines and Sammy Davis. Jr, who he finds entertaining.
  • Ivy League for Everyone: He boasts about having a business degree from the WASP Harvard University, instead of "one of those historically black colleges".
  • Jerkass: He's a proudly elitist, unscrupulous businessman. And he fires an employee for a trivial reason, and takes away his business lunch.
  • Motor Mouth: He rambles on and on at meetings, and he even asks if he's speaking too quickly.
  • No Celebrities Were Harmed: He's a parody of Reginald Hudlin, who was (very briefly) an executive producer of The Boondocks, before he became the president of BET.
  • Professional Butt-Kisser: Likely the reason he was hired, because he doesn't dare question Deborah's crazy and evil schemes.
  • Viewers Are Morons: Much like Deborah, he is also a firm believer of this idea. He even proposed a ban on words exceeding three syllables, claiming that more uneducated viewers in the Deep South would have trouble understanding them.

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.
  • Flawless Token: This attitude is mercilessly mocked In-Universe: the liberal voters are more interested in having a black president and ignore his actual flaws and policies.
  • 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.
  • Sleazy Politician: He isn't completely amoral, but he still engages in some pretty shady behavior:
    • In "The Fried Chicken Flu", he is quite happy to live in a comfy bunker during a national emergency, while only offering the American people cheap platitudes.
    • He gave the horribly amoral businessman Ed Wuncler a pardon. Implying that Obama is in the pocket of, or least kowtows to, powerful interests.
  • 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.
  • Bilingual Backfire: While her teammates mocked Huey for believing in her fake sob-story, Ming laughs at him. This proved to be her downfall as Huey, who speaks Mandarin, understood what they said and went all-out on them, single-handedly eliminating most of them, Ming included.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Creator Backlash: In-Universe, he becomes disillusioned with his fanbase by the end, when he realizes that even though he only hates black people because of their attitudes, most of his fans really do just hate them because they're black.
  • 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.
  • Even Evil Has Standards: While he's an unapologetic racist, at least he's sincere in his hatred for black people because of their "attitudes". When his new black friend Ruckus cops racist abuse despite being, well, like he is, he's upset to realise that other racists hate blacks solely because of their skin colour.
  • No Celebrities Were Harmed: He's based on a real racist country singer known as Johnny Rebel. Many of the album titles he lists off at the end have the same names as Johnny's.

    The Hateocracy
Left to right: Lady Esmeralda Gripenasty, Lord Rufus Crabmiser, and Mr. George 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 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.
  • Card-Carrying Villain: As if the name didn't give it away, they later admit they love fucking shit up for the hell of it.
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: They beat Uncle Ruckus until he's hospitalized. They later prove to be more than a match for the Freemans and decapitate Bushido Brown when he tries to protect the family.
  • 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.
  • Hero Killer: They kill Bushido Brown whom the Freemans hired to protect them from the Hateocracy.
  • 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; they just hate everyone and everything else even more.
  • 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.
  • 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!
  • Stronger Than They Look: Despite being really old, they seem to be far stronger and more agile than most people much younger than them.
  • 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.

  • Authority Equals Asskicking: 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.
  • Impossibly Cool Weapon: He wields a lobster cage with retractable blades on a string that he swings around like a flying guillotine. It's sharp and strong enough to decapitate a log and people as well. He manages to kill Bushido Brown with it.
  • 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.
  • Shown Their Work: His use of crabs as a metaphor for people holding each other back is based on a real phenomenon where crabs will stop each other from escaping a bucket and a theory that is named after it: Crab Mentality.
  • 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.

"Lady" Esmeralda Gripenasty

Voiced by: Bebe Drake

The sole woman of the group.

"Mr." George Pistofferson

Voiced by: Jimmie Walker

The other man of the trio, he's the one with the mustache and blue hat.

  • Evil Is Hammy: He always talks loudly and doesn't hesitate to let loose in his Pre Ass Kicking Oneliner towards Huey and Riley.
    Pistofferson: Well, well, well. We came a long way to kill y'all little niglets. Now it's time for the BIG BONANZAAAA!
  • Expy: George Pistofferson is based on (and voiced by!) JJ Evans.

    Lamilton Taeshawn 

Lamilton Taeshawn
Voiced by: Bobb'e J. Thompson

A preteen psychopath, whom Riley makes the mistake of hanging out with.

  • Abusive Parents: Apparently he was horribly abused by his mom and dad. Inverted with his grandma, who is horribly abused by Lamilton himself!
  • Ax-Crazy: He's prone to outbursts of violent rage, and his psychiatrist predicts that he will murder somebody unless he's imprisoned or killed first.
  • Bad People Abuse Animals: He fatally shoots Betty von Heusen's guard dog, claiming he was acting in "self-defense", even though the dog was still chained when he tried trespassing into von Heusen's yard.
  • The Bully: Even worse than Butch Magnus. Butch would pummel and humiliate his victims. Lamilton would likely straight-up kill them. Even his own grandmother isn't safe.
  • Card-Carrying Villain / For the Evulz: See his Catchphrase below.
  • Catchphrase: "I'm a bad kid. I like to do bad things."
  • Combat Pragmatist: He fights in an incredibly ruthless way against Riley and is clearly intending to kill him as fast as possible, as he doesn't hesitate in doing boring, yet dirty tricks, such as grabbing onto Riley's hair, and trying to choke him out as he's got him pinned down, taking full advantage of the weight difference between the two.
  • Creepy Child / Enfante Terrible: His former school counselor actually suggested that he's The Antichrist.
  • Delinquent: His idea of having a fun time is to commit all kinds of petty crimes, from dropping objects on passing cars, to shooting a chained dog.
  • Disney Villain Death: Lamilton falls off from the roof of the J. Edgar Hoover Elementary School building, but this is subverted when his body fat protects him, allowing him to survive with only broken bones and a limping walk.
  • Disproportionate Retribution: He beat up his own grandma because she didn't get him fried chicken.
  • Drives Like Crazy: Well, what do you expect? He's only eight.
  • Expy: A direct parody of a real life boy named Latarian Milton, who was famous on the news back in 2008 for assaulting his grandmother for fried chicken and stealing her truck to go on a joyride, both of which Lamilton did in the episode.
    • Of Henry Evans. Both are false friends of the protagonist, both are sadists who do evil things for fun, and both kill dogs. Also, both end up falling from a high place (a school building for Lamilton, a cliff for Henry), though Lamilton survived due to his fat protecting him from the fall, while Henry is confirmed to be dead.
    • He's also a parody of Michael Myers due to being labelled by others as pure evil, his lack of empathy and emotion, and having a psychologist obsessed with stopping him.
    • He is also a parody of Tupac Shakur’s character Bishop from Juice. He begins as a friend of the protagonist but drives them away with his increasingly violent behavior. Some of Lamilton’s scenes are direct homages to the film, such as confronting Riley in the school hallways, shooting a defenseless victim (in this case a dog, in Bishop’s case a store clerk), and even having a final fight with the protagonist on a tall building wherein he falls to his “death” after Riley tries to hold onto him. The final words of this episode spoken to Riley, “Hey you got a cigarette?” even mirror the final words of the film, spoken to protagonist Q: “Yo, you got the juice now.”
  • False Friend: Lamilton acquaints himself with Riley. Eventually, though Riley, a boy who is very often a Horrible Judge of Character when it comes to befriending people, realizes that there's something very wrong with his "friend", and tries to leave when Lamilton goes too far.
  • Fat Bastard: Robert even calls him a "fat fucker". Not to mention the violent tantrum he threw over not getting fried chicken.
  • Freudian Excuse: His grandmother states that he came from a very abusive and Dysfunctional Family. Despite this, Lamilton himself never brings up the subject.
  • Insistent Terminology: Lamilton doesn't like to smoke, he likes to "smoke with cigarettes."
  • Jerkass: Oh yes, and he can barely hide it. His facade of friendship with Riley is quite shallow.
  • Knight of Cerebus: Some of his scenes were among the rare moments not Played for Laughs. His threatening behavior towards Riley was Nightmare Fuel played very straight.
  • Lack of Empathy: He makes it clear that he doesn't care about other people.
  • Mirror Character: Imagine Riley with no morals or restraint, and that is what Lamilton is.
  • Nightmare Fetishist: Lamilton enjoys watching ultra-violent horror movies a little too much.
  • No Celebrities Were Harmed: A very transparent parody of Latarian Milton, a 7-year-old kid who also took his grandmother's SUV for a joyride, and had also later beaten up his grandmother for refusing to buy him fried chicken. Many of Lamilton's actions and mannerisms were directly copied from Latarian.
  • Obviously Evil: This boy is creepy as all hell; he has a dull and lifeless face, constantly talks about how much he likes doing bad things, and is unable to hide his malevolent nature. His grandmother always thinks that he's just misunderstood, and it took Riley too long to figure out why he shouldn't socialize with him.
  • Ominous Latin Chanting: "LAM-IL-TON! TAE-SHAWN!"
  • Ordered Apology: On his grandma's orders, he gives a very insincere apology for letting Riley ride with him in his car.
  • Red Is Violent: He wears a red shirt, and is a nihilistic sociopath who doesn't care about the value of life, his included, and does terrible things because, by his own words, is a "bad kid, who likes to do bad things."
  • Sadist: While he doesn't even smile about it, one can tell that he enjoys inflicting torment.
  • Smoking Is Cool: He certainly thinks so.
  • The Sociopath: He's an extreme low-functioning example: not just with his propensity toward violence, but his complete lack of self-preservation instincts. His therapist outright considers him to be pure evil. And this assessment is hardly an exaggeration.
  • The Stoic: Done to very creepy effect, with Lamilton barely making any facial expressions, or speaking differently from his constant monotone. It seems he only knows a few emotions: sadistic joy, violent anger, and fear (you too would scream if you fell from a building and got injured).
  • Stout Strength: At least enough to deliver an intense beating to his grandmother. Though he's not as strong as Butch Magnus, as Riley could hold his own against Lamilton.
  • Straw Nihilist: He makes it clear he doesn’t care about anything or anyone, not even himself.
  • Stupid Evil: Lamilton even claims to not care much about himself. His reckless crimes threaten not only other people but himself as well; he smokes even though it poisons his lungs, almost got himself killed when trying to joyride in his grandma's car, and he even wanted to burglarize the home of a heavily armed old woman.
  • Troubling Unchildlike Behavior: The most stand-out example of the series so far.
  • Villainous Glutton: He beats his grandma for not getting him fried chicken.
  • Younger than They Look: He's 6 years old, yet looks way older than the 10 year old Huey.

    Dr. Doomis

    Alistair Ripley 

Alistair Ripley

Voiced by: Greg Ellis

The boss of the UK-based World's Ultimate Chocolate company, which produces chocolate bars for school fundraisers — and also happens to be a front for organized crime. He doesn't react well to Riley and his friends starting their own chocolate business.

    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.
  • Celebrity Paradox: He's an expy of Tyler Perry, with Ma Dukes an expy of Madea...but "Or Die Trying" and "The Uncle Ruckus Reality Show" established that Madea movies do exist in this universe, and presumably Perry as well.
  • 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.
  • Expy: Of Tyler Perry and his Madea character.
  • 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 "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.
  • 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.
  • Gruesome Grandparent: She's no nicer to her grandchildren than she is to her son, and is shown smacking Uncle and attacking one of his younger brothers with a knife.
  • Hate Sink: Much like her son, she's at least just as much of a despicable human being as he is, though she isn't given any traumatic flashbacks to humanize her even a little bit.
  • Jerkass: Uncle notes that she's even nastier than Mister, and that's really saying something.
  • 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.
  • Asshole Victim: Downplayed. As despicable as he was and the fact that his family is shown to be better off without him, he is shown to have plenty of sympathetic qualities before his demise that shows how he himself was a victim of abuse by both his employers and his own mother.
  • 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.
  • Death by Falling Over: He's about to hit Uncle when his back gives out. As a result, he loses his balance and falls into Nelly's grave, breaking his neck.
  • 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. That being said, he is never treated sympathetically, and Uncle bluntly tells him that this doesn't excuse his own cruelty.
  • Hate Sink: Despite his tragic past, his behavior is never treated as anything less than abhorrent, to the point that his whole family feels relieved after he accidentally kills himself.
  • 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.
    • He's also very much correct that Bunny's deluded opinions about white people and her attempts at making Ruckus believe in himself by convincing him he's actually a white person trapped in a back person's body was beyond stupid and messed him up almost worse than Mister did. He also brings up to Ruckus' face that if he just stopped and thought about it for a minute, he'd realize just how ridiculous that "Re-Vitaligo" bullshit shounds.
    Mister: That's why they shouldn't let dumb bitches read psychology books.
  • Karmic Death: When Mister tries to hit Uncle one last time, he succumbs to an old back injury; causing him to accidentally fall into his mother's grave, 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. Uncle Calling the Old Man Out even boils down to encouraging this to make him stop treating them the same way.
  • Laughably Evil: Zigzagged. He takes child abuse to ghoulishly comedic extremes... but his actions had horrible effects on those around him.
  • 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.
  • 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: Darryl and Darell 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 a small wonder the man has his fair share of problems.
  • Troubled Abuser: As a child, he suffered relentless abuse at the hands of his mother. When he grew up, he went on to abuse his own children in the same way.
  • Undignified Death: He tries to hit Uncle Ruckus when the latter finally stands up to him, only to fall into his mother's grave and break his neck when his back gives out.

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.
  • Both Sides Have a Point: Her husband may be right about the family being subservient to white people, but it at least meant that their sons didn't grow up to hold an ugly grudge against them like he did. Uncle was only one who became an actual racist compared to her, Darrell, and Darryl anyway. Though Mister's abuse did played a role in his racism.
  • Catchphrase: (After Mister slaps Uncle) "Lord have mercy, my baby!"
  • 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.
  • No Sympathy: She shows no sadness at all when her husband is killed, instead celebrating that she can now marry her white lover.
  • 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 some racist 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, and try and show some sympathy for their terrible father.
  • 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".
  • Shout-Out: Darryl is dressed like Fat Albert and Darell like Mr. T.
  • 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?: Darell 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.

  • Action Hero: Jack is a parody of spy thriller protagonists.
    • Memetic Badass: In-universe, he's developed a fearsome reputation for his skills at fighting terrorists and kicking their testicles. But Huey wasn't aware of who Jack was until they met, though Ruckus already heard about him.
  • Anti-Hero: He's a secret agent who tortures and kills terrorists for a living. He seems ruthless at first, though he's actually morally conflicted about his job and he genuinely wants to do the right thing.
  • Cartwright Curse: He feels guilty about not being able to prevent three of his girlfriends from getting brutally murdered by criminals:
    • Tracy was decapitated by a swordsman in an alley.
    • Eleanor had a bomb strapped to her, and was thrown off a building, exploding before hitting the ground.
    • Taquanda was strapped to a missile, and was flown and blown up in midair.
  • Expy: An obvious parody of Jack Bauer.
  • Fire-Forged Friends: After a confused counter-terrorism operation gone wrong (Jack Flowers mistakenly believed that Huey and Ruckus were terrorists), Jack convinces Huey and Ruckus to help him out by evacuating Dan Stuckey from the Wuncler Tower before a bomb destroys it.
  • Jack Bauer Interrogation Technique: His preferred method of getting info out of terrorists is to kick them in the genitals. When that fails, he uses a very heavy steel-toed boot and takes a run-up.
  • Rogue Agent: Jack Flowers decides to go vigilante on the Wunclers.
    Chief: Sorry Jack, turns out some people are above the law. The Wunclers will not pay for what they did today, you have my word. Good work everyone, have a good weekend. And oh, no going rogue.
    Jack: I'm going rogue.
  • Shell-Shocked Veteran: He says that he can still hear the screams of people that he's tortured or killed, and feels especially remorseful about accidentally harming innocents.
  • Wouldn't Hurt a Child: Jack tells his boss that he's hesitant about pursuing Huey because he's a kid (saying the trope name almost word-for-word). Although after he was told Huey might be a terrorist, Jack did threaten to kick him in the nuts (whether or not he would've followed on this threat, we don't know).

    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.
  • Irony: He extolls the greatness of the free market...but it is the capitalist Wuncler who wants him dead for financial reasons.
  • Jerkass: He's very rude and has an (undeservedly) large ego.
  • Politically Incorrect Villain: He refers to Obama as "Buck Ofama", implying he is a deeply prejudiced asshole. He also blames the fact that he isn't rich on the government taking money from him and giving it "lazy" poor people.
  • 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. More specifically, of the populist working-class conservative who blames his lack of success as the fault of "others", not the system itself or his own lack of initiative.

Season 4

    Pretty Boy Flizzy 

"Pretty Boy Flizzy"

An R&B singer who, much like Usher, seemed to be a threat to Tom's and Sarah's marriage. At the same time though, he gives Tom his own advice about women.

  • All Girls Want Bad Boys: He claims that women would prefer abusive jerks like himself, rather than boring nice guys like Tom.
  • Attention Whore: Tom discovers that the store robbery Flizzy is being charged with was actually staged. It is also implied that all of Flizzy's crimes, with the exception of his assault on his girlfriend, weren't actually real and were faked just to keep his name in the news.
  • The Casanova: He's a notorious womanizer, and it really shows in his music (most of his song titles and lyrics are very sexually explicit).
  • Celeb Crush: Sarah has a very obvious crush on him, much to Tom's dismay. Noticing a pattern here?
  • Domestic Abuse/Would Hit a Girl: He notably beat up his girlfriend Christianna. Of all the crimes Flizzy was charged with, this is the only one he admits to being guilty of.
  • Hidden Heart of Gold: He hired actors to help stage his robberies so that he could stay relevant in the music community. Also does this to provoke Tom into hitting him.
  • Jerkass: He beats women and writes songs about sleeping with other guys' wives or girlfriends.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Although he's a trouble-making domestic abuser, he did try to help Tom keep his wife. And most of his crimes (besides hitting his girlfriend) were revealed to be staged anyway.
  • Meaningful Name: Pretty Boy Flizzy is indeed a very good-looking man.
  • Mr. Fanservice: Something which he boasts about a lot, hence his stage name.
  • No Celebrities Were Harmed: Flizzy is an obvious pastiche of Chris Brown, with both being young R&B singers who started out with great promise but became notorious for assaulting their girlfriends and subsequent legal troubles. Flizzy's girlfriend Christianna is herself a pastiche of Rihanna.
  • Obfuscating Stupidity: Pretty Boy Flizzy only acts like an idiotic jerk, just so he can get higher up on the ladder in the music industry, and maintain his status among his fanbase.
  • Only Known by Their Nickname: "Pretty Boy Flizzy" is his stage name.
  • Where da White Women At?: He has a song called "White Wife Booty". He also intentionally angers Tom by threatening to steal Sarah from him, so that Tom could finally man up.

    Boss Willona 

"Boss" Willona

Voiced by: Jenifer 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.



Voiced by: Jenifer Lewis

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

  • Jerkass: Geraldine is a madame (female pimp) after all, and she's willing to harshly punish Robert for his mistakes.



Voiced by: Melique Verger

A 39-year-old woman whom Robert meets while working as an escort for Geraldine.

  • Nervous Wreck: She's very insecure, partly due to still being single for a woman her age.

    Sturdy Harris 

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: During a race riot in Birmingham, Alabama, he was able to physically defeat several attackers without injuring them.
  • Badass Preacher: He's a preacher and he's very talented in martial arts, so much so that he can go out of his way to incapacitate his opponents without injuring them in any way.
  • 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.
  • Meaningful Name: Sturdy Harris is a very tough and strong man who sticks to his pacifistic morals in situations where lesser men would resort to violence just to defend themselves, making him live up to his given name in terms of body and in morale.
  • 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.


Kardashia Kardashian

Voiced by: Grey DeLisle

A woman claiming to be a long-lost half-sister of the Kardashians, who is trying to get her own reality TV series. Robert dates her in hopes of paying off his debt to Wuncler.

  • Attention Whore: Deconstructed. She lied about being a Kardashian to get on t.v. and under went a dangerous and illegal procedure to make her ass bigger. Her butt implants end up killing her and she dies when her blood type is revealed, proving she isn't a Kardashian.
  • Cruel and Unusual Death: After getting a few too many silicone butt implants, her ass explodes. She dies slowly and painfully in the hospital.
  • Hartman Hips: Played for Laughs, Kardashia has a massive fake ass that is apparently very dense and destroys everything it comes in contact with.
  • Jerkass: Not surprisingly, she's a petty and shallow woman who's desperate for reality TV stardom, not caring about what it takes to get there.
  • No Celebrities Were Harmed: Of the Kardashian sisters.
  • Only One Name: She isn't really related to the Kardashians and her real surname is never stated. It's likely Kardashia isn't her real name either.
  • The Reveal: She's not actually related to the Kardashians. Everyone leaves her behind, so she dies alone with her dreams crushed.



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."
  • 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 

Walter Sweetlove

Voiced by: Tom Kenny

A gay rights activist who was a former associate (and protege) of Rollo Goodlove. After Riley is accused of being homophobic towards a fellow student, Sweetlove tries to force him to apologize.

  • 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

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 to drink 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.

Video Example(s):


Luna's life sucked

Luna may be an Ax-Crazy Dark Action Girl, but it isn't without reason.
In the climax, she reveals to her hostages Tom DuBois and Robert Freeman (who's also her latest boyfriend) her backstory of how she ran away from home as a young girl, due to having an Abusive Dad who slapped her mother around for petty reasons like undercooking his fried chicken. She then dated a series of men who were also physically, emotionally, and/or verbally abusive to her. Her first boyfriend, a mob boss from Hong Kong named Kenny Wu, even slapped her for the same reason that her dad hit her mom (serving chicken that was too cold).

How well does it match the trope?
