Like the movie, the show is predominantly a parody of and tribute to blaxploitation cinema. The show continues the story of Black Dynamite and his crew of Bullhorn, Cream Corn, and Honey Bee as they engage in dangerous and over-the-top misadventures sometimes involving African-American stars ex: Michael Jackson (back when he was part of the Jackson 5), O. J. Simpson, Richard Pryor, Mr. T and other famous people like Elvis Presley, as well as Black Dynamite’s recurring arch-nemesis President Richard Nixon (the main villain from the film). This show also makes references to the original Black Dynamite movie, such as Fiendish Dr. Wu as the leader of a group of ninjas; however, the show seems to follow its own continuity; as some characters from the film who were killed off are alive in the series.
This is one over the top ridiculous animated tv shows I have seen in a while, insults of every kind flying everywhere. They took the movie and took it to another level, with the style of 70s and some great humor they really made this show hilarious especially with Black Dynamite. This isn’t meant for kids, this is directed to adults and you can tell when you watch it. The idea of an orphanage and whorehouse being the same business is just ridiculous, its what Black Dynamite calls his Whorphanage, and it just gets more ridiculous from there, it is offensive on a lot of levels and I love that about the show. Its just over the top animated fun of the R-rated kind, its just 10 episodes but I hope they bring it back again.
