If the parody blaxploitation film Black Dynamite starring Michael Jai White just wasn’t enough to whet your appetite (I’m sorry that rhymed), then you are in luck. This summer the Black Dynamite animated series finally hits the Adult Swim block of Cartoon Network. The series continues the blaxploitation parody angle, but with an animation style similar to that of The Boondocks, so there’s a chance of more racial commentary and comedy this time instead of just spoof humor.

Plus, the film’s stars Michael Jai White, Byron Minns, Tommy Davidson and Kym Whitley all reprise their roles as Black Dynamite, Bullhorn, Cream Corn and Honeybee, respectively, along with new cast members like comedian J.B. Smoove. You can hear and see them in their animated form now as the first trailer for the series has just debuted, with the series slated to premiere this summer on July 15th, the last day of Comic-Con 2012.  See the trailer, two posters, and four images from the series.

Here’s the trailer from Adult Swim’s YouTube:

Frankly, I’m not sure how this is going to work out, mainly because it’s taken Adult Swim awhile to get this series on TV. The pilot itself was put on Adult Swim’s website last August and is just now coming to TV. I don’t know if that means they don’t have faith in the series, or logistics needed to be worked out for scheduling, but the series is finally hitting the air. The pilot follows Black Dynamite as he is assigned to stop a rogue educational show puppet from executing his diabolical plan on national television. Sounds like the silliness you’d expect from a Black Dynamite series.

Here are two posters and four images from Black Dynamite:
