Bad Jokes and Racial Stereotypes Ever After
Animation was okayish, but other than that the series would be best used for RiffTrax. The first episode could be described as poor black family has to sell their cow, but the kid meets a singing crossroads demon who tricks him into trading the cow for some beans. Uses beans to grow mutant vine that reaches into the clouds where a giant who is bad at rhymes can tell skin color by smell and his wife is tired of this kid who keeps coming over to mooch off her.. They could do a sequel where 10 years later the crossroads demon returns for his soul?
