Like many men in their thirties, I am a child. I enjoy professional wrestling, immature but socially appropriate memes, and cartoons. One of my favorite cartoons is the series Regular Show created by J.G. Quintel that ran until January 2017.

Regular Show's absurd yet snarky humor appeals to my specific taste in comedy while possessing the sincerity associated with a children's cartoon. But as intellectually charming as Regular Show is, I'm still not Mordecai and Rigby's intended demographic.

When Aaron McGruder's comic strip, The Boondocks, became an animated series, it changed television forever.

The show debuted in November of 2005 and was instantly a hit as part of Cartoon Network's Adult Swim line-up.

Fired "Squidbillies" Star Unknown Hinson Blames YOU for the Fallout of His Dolly Parton Attack

We apparently "ruined" his life by not being racist and sexist enough to accept his attacks on Dolly Parton.

On Sunday guitarist and voice actor Stuart D. Baker, better known as his stage persona Unknown Hinson, was fired from the long-running Adult Swim show Squidbillies.

Baker had voiced the show's main character, Early Cuyler, for over 12 seasons, lending his distinctive voice to a show dedicated to stereotypes of ignorance and intolerance in the rural south. Unfortunately for Baker, it turns out that his act as a belligerent sexist bigot was...not really an act.

Today, March 6, 2020, Tyler Okonma—best known as Tyler, the Creator—turns 29 years old.

The polymathic rapper first rose to prominence as a founding member of the alternative hip-hop collective, Odd Future, whose debut album was released in 2012. And although multiple members of the now-inactive group have experienced fruitful solo careers—Frank Ocean and Earl Sweatshirt among them—Tyler, the Creator's has arguably left the most recognizable influence. With five studio albums, a clothing line, a music festival, and much more on his resume, Tyler has been cited as a major inspiration to Gen Z icons like Billie Eilish and BROCKHAMPTON's Kevin Abstract.

Occasionally controversial but always a brilliant artist, Tyler has made himself known as not only a masterful musician, but a filterless class clown of the real world. Below, here are nine of Tyler, the Creator's most iconic moments.

A Walking Paradox

With just a cockroach, a noose, and a perspective control lens, Tyler introduced his solo rap career with one of the most unforgettable music videos of the decade (self-directed under his alter ego, Wolf Haley).
