  1. Eddie Murphy he used to be funny and then I don’t know it just got old. He had all of that money and what do we get a show about people in the projects, him dressing up like a caricature of black women and just in my opinion a sad legacy. I would rather not be represented on TV at all than have anything Eddie Murphy would provide.

    I like the Boondocks, but maybe I’m not being fair. Eddie Murphy has a completely different background than Aaron McGruder. I guess I wouldn’t mind Eddie so much if more political and smarter people of color were given wider exposure.

    The reason I don’t like Eddie Murphy is because people think that’s it to black culture (that would include everyone even many black people,) that shows like the PJs and Good Times is the real black culture and anything different than that is not really black or something that is black can’t just be American.

    And to me its like this show if it were viewed as American culture I would be ok with it, but I know it’s not. It’s viewed as specific people who live in America.

    Its like that show Avenue Q it was some parts of it that were funny, but it seemed to be pushing forward certain stereotypes and the idea of “other”. I don’t really like it though I do find it funny in small doses.


  2. Don’t remember the PJ’S sorry!!, But I do remember the “Bannana Splits”, “Johnny Quest”, “The Billy Barty” show, I appeared on that show once,(when he asks children in the audience”What kind of animal would you like to be?”)and why.
    I answered that “I would like to be a bird, so I could sit on top of City Hall”!and look down on the city!! My Mom took me downtown to Bullock’s or some similar store in the 60’s to see an appearance by “Hobo Kelly”!! What memories!!! Who rembers “Wonderama”?

  3. Holy hell, this show was genius. I remember liking it for the witty writing, sarcasm and honesty. It reminds me of the mid-90s TGIF show Dinosaurs.
