I just discovered the animated (anime) version of The Boondocks newspaper comic strip last week. I think it is very entertaining, from what I have seen so far.

I am just finishing the first season from 2005-2006, yet those old episodes are still so topical today:

For those not familiar with the original comic strip, it ran between 1999 and 2006. See:

I thought the comic strip was great, but the cartoon series too mean spirited to be enjoyable.

The cartoon series certainly has a harder and grittier edge. I'm not sure I would call it mean spirited, though.
