One of the greatest cartoons of all time
11 February 2004 | by tdubzSee all my reviews

If there is one show that deserves to be called one of the greatest this is the one, there are many other shows that are close for instance family guy or futurama, but this one is a classic because of the fact that it is about a bunch of broke people living in the hilton-jacobs projects. This show basically pokes fun at people such as crackheads, fat people and the beloved main character, superintendant Thurgood Stubbs. In my opinion, they made a mistake about the cancellation of the show, and Eddy Murphy should keep making these hilarious cartoons.:10/10
