The Boondocks is an American adult animated sitcom on Cartoon Network's late-night programming block, Adult Swim. Created by Aaron McGruder,[1] based upon McGruder's comic strip of the same name,[1] the series premiered on November 6, 2005. The show begins with a black family, the Freemans, settling into the fictional, peaceful, and mostly white suburb of Woodcrest from Chicago's South Side.[2] The perspective offered by this mixture of cultures, lifestyles, social classes, stereotypes, viewpoints and races provides for much of the series' satire, comedy, and conflict.

The Boondocks ended on June 23, 2014 with a total of 55 episodes over the course of the show's four seasons. The season two episodes "The Hunger Strike" and "The Uncle Ruckus Reality Show" were never aired in the United States and first aired on Teletoon in Canada. The season three episodes "The Story of Jimmy Rebel" and "Pause" were pulled from general rotation and no longer air in reruns.

The series also airs in syndication outside the United States and has been released on various DVD sets and other forms of home media.
