2. ‘The Proud Family Movie’ Took Inspiration From Other Well-Known Characters
It won’t take long for viewers to notice that Dr. Carver’s character looks a little like The Penguin from the Tim Burton film Batman Returns. And in case you didn’t already catch it, the character of Fifteen Cent parodies the real-life rapper 50 Cent.
