Huey Freeman appears in the Cartoon Network Adult Swim animated television series The Boondocks, based on the comic strip of the same name. A ten-year-old African-American boy, he is an intellectually advanced maverick with strong leftist leanings and radical ideologies, though he looks at the world with a no-nonsense and often irate viewpoint. Huey usually speaks in a calm and well-controlled manner, seemingly to the point of being emotionless, and almost never smiles. He’s also irked quite a bit by what he considers to be the ignorance surrounding him in the world, venting his frustrations with a well-placed quip or sharp-tongued observation.
He lives together with his irascible grandfather Robert and his younger brother Riley, and is typically the voice of reason in most of the antics his relatives get themselves into. He also maintains a good friendship with his neighbor Jasmine, treating her like a sister and generally looking out for her, though he has little patience for her young innocence and easily dismisses her beliefs in things like the Tooth Fairy. In addition to being a nonconformist child prodigy, Huey is also a skilled martial artist and swordfighter. He also has extensive knowledge on the culture and history of African-Americans, providing his own biting social commentary on how it stands today.
