Blaxploitation Gets the Animated Treatment

Black Dynamite, a TV revamp of the 2009 cult film, has loads of humor and anime-style graphics.

The animated Black Dynamite is not for the faint of heart or those who want to see only “positive images” of blacks on television. It is for those who like edgy comedy and entertainment that pushes the envelope. And just because it’s a cartoon doesn’t mean that Black Dynamite is for children of all ages. I repeat: Black Dynamite is not for children. Ya dig? Black Dynamite is baadasssss, and just what you’d expect from a program on Adult Swim.
