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.
