If one were to make a list of Black cartoons -- shows, not movies, one-off specials, or specific characters -- it wouldn’t be a very long one. What it would be is a pretty even three-way split between modern classics, like The Boondocks; more old school stuff, like Fat Albert, and mid-to-late 90's joints like Static Shock. Only one cartoon franchise to date has managed to stand out in two of those three categories: The Proud Family, rebooted last year as The Proud Family: Louder and Prouder.
