Two episodes of Aaron McGruder's The Boondocks that took aim at the African-American cable network BET were yanked last season by Turner Broadcasting's Cartoon Networks after BET threatened legal action, the Los Angeles Times reported today ( Wednesday). Nevertheless, the newspaper said, the two censored episodes are scheduled to be included in a DVD compilation of the series being released on Tuesday. The Times report said that the two episodes target BET's top executives and lampoons t he channel's "negative imagery" of black Americans. In one of the episodes, a cartoon representation of the channel's chairman and CEO, Debra L. Lee (named Dr. Leevil in the show) tells a staff meeting: "Our leader Bob Johnson had a dream, a dream that would accomplish what hundreds of years of slavery, Jim Crow and malt liquor could not accomplish -- the destruction of black people."
