Remember that Season 1 episode of Atlanta, when the conversation surrounding police brutality and Black Lives Matter was brought up during a lit cereal commercial? That's the kind of vibe the KYLE-hosted animated series Sugar and Toys is bringing to the medium.
The series, which premieres Sunday, June 9 at 11 p.m. ET on Fuse, is described as being "hip-hop culture-themed" with "no-holds-barred social commentary," which makes sense when you realize the producers behind Black Dynamite and The Boondocks—Carl Jones and Brian Ash—are the creative forces for Sugar and Toys.
With the catchphrase "pack a bowl," there's a Saturday morning cartoon vibe here, only it's on late on Sundays, which allows for the insanity of animation to crash into stories and depictions of deeper social issues plucked straight from
the headlines the timeline.
There's loads of hip-hop (and hip-hop-related) bits in here, including what sounds like the voice of Katt Williams (among others). Check out the full trailer up above, and make sure your bowls are packed for a healthy dose of that real (animated) shit when Sugar and Toys hits your screens.
