  • Notes

  • Allusions

    • Enter The Dragon:

      When Bushido Brown said, "Boy, you come straight out of a comic strip", this was both an allusion to two facts:

      1. The Boondocks was originally a comic strip.

      2. The character Williams from Enter The Dragon, who was an obvious inspiration for Bushido Brown, who told the villian Han, "Man, you come right out of a comic book."
