Premise: Main characters Huey and Riley make a major move from the city into the suburbs with their grandfather, causing huge socio-political and socio-economic adjustments.
How Can You Forget: Uncle Ruckus, the African-American white supremacist. Lasting Effects: Originally a comic strip, the show explored many racial, economic, and political issues in the black community, while making good use of satirical comedy. The one-line messages usually served as a stinging indictment of how illogically African Americans view life, and it captured the attention of both African-American revolutionaries and rebels.
