Just once I would like to see them do something with some form of substance behind it. I know they're comedians, but honestly, their stuff isn't all that funny.

The program known as Thug-a-boo is sick and twisted. I have seen half a minute of it on www.youtube.com , and the whole while I was thinking "They're marketing this *word ommitted* to kids!?" The show is nothing less than racism for kids. It's far dirtier than anything I've seen on Family Guy, partially because racial slurs are far overdone, but mostly because it's disguised as a children's program. The Wayans claim that it's "family friendly." I, as you may have noticed, have been attempting to remain professional in this review, but here's where it falls apart.

There is NOTHING family friendly about the show. It encourages the thug lifestyle; bootlegging, racism, hip-hop, and ignorance. I can't BELIEVE they're trying to market this **** to kids, and I'm VERY disappointed in Nickelodeon for going along with it. THIS IS NOT A KID'S SHOW!

How is this dirtier than Family Guy. My daughter and I watched this show and she understood the message about wanting something Mom and Pop can't afford. This cartoon brought an issue my 7 year old daughter could relate to. The video was jammed packed with stereotypes, but what kids cartoon isn't? I'm tired of seeing TV shows on Disney, Nickelodeon, and Cartoon Network that constantly depict stereotypes as being ok and "how it is". The one black kid is a trouble maker or there has to be one flunky black kid in the click. The Asian kid is the brainiac. These show have the same sterotypes with no true message... I look forward to what else they release. This was a show that displayed how a group of kids coexisting, there aren't too many of these out there.
