If you want to be technical it is, although I don't believe that most consider it as one.

No. If it was not dubbed over an original Japanese cast, then it's orginally an "American" animation.

no The Boondocks is not an anime although its fight scenes are inspired by Samurai Champloo and Cowboy Bebop and Madhouse (Japanese animation studio) did contribute segments to season 2.

its not an anime but they tried to copy the feel and style of one but with an urban feel to it, the only person in the show that really looks like an anime person would be the D.A.'s daughter, and she's is half black, half white,

Even if it is not known as a anime it is good enough to be consider a anime.

opps i forgot to say that, i think its a great cartoon, but its not anime, but it still is a show i feel young people should not watch, american children think they can act just like what they see and hear on the tv and radio, but that also falls on the parents responsibilities,


i wont let my 9 y/o watch the boondocks, but thats just my opion,

Anime = french word for Cartoons

Boondocks = a cartoon.

By the definition of merriam-webster.com, yes, it is an anime.
http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/anime

a style of animation originating in Japan that is characterized by stark colorful graphics depicting vibrant characters in action-filled plots often with fantastic or futuristic themes

And before you make a comment such as, "Not all animes have fantastic/futuristic themes", I'd like to point out that the word "often" is there for a meaning.

And before you get too carried away, it states anime is a style originating in Japan. So yes, Boondocks has this style even if it didn't originate in Japan, therefore it is an anime.

The true meaning of anime is obviously just the Japanese word for animation, because they like to cut things and make them smaller, like super market is just "su-pa". But yes, anime is obviously a style now as well.

You can cover your ears and scream "no no no no no" all you want, but it's still an anime, that's a fact, even if you don't consider it/want it to be true.
