Based on aaron mcgruder's comic strip. Huey, a 10-year-old leftist revolutionary and his 8-year-old misfit brother, riley leaev the rough chicago south side for the relative peacefulness of the suburbs. Although the boys torture each other and provoke the neighborhood, they are no match for eccentric grandad.

"About the best thing to be said about "Boondocks" is that it endeavors to be about something...  Brian Lowry, Variety
"A funny, entertaining show and high quality extras? It looks like it's time for you to visit The Boondocks...  Jude Clement, TVDVDReviews.com
"...an animated situation comedy in the tradition of early Simpsons...tightly directed...never feels excessive or slow...  Karl Olson, Toon Zone News
"...its biting wit and underlying message make it a compelling watch...Huey is an absolute riot.  Mark Runyon, PM Media Review
"...a touching coming-of-age story with enough warmth to melt many of the sharp -- and hilarious -- edges.  Tim Goodman, San Francisco Chronicle

Editor's Note
Based on the syndicated comic strip of Aaron MacGruder, one of only a few African American cartoonists and arguably the most successful, this animated show appeared on the Cartoon Network's Adult Swim. MacGruder satirizes race relations and contemporary culture in a dry, cynical way that pulls no punches, and generates a great deal of controversy along the way. The show follows protagonist Huey, a 10-year-old revolutionary-in-training, and Riley, his 8-year-old brother and future gangsta. The boys have been moved from their home on Chicago's South Side to the suburban "boondocks" to live with their grandfather, where they get into trouble and comment freely upon the idiosyncracies--to put it mildly--of the white people in whose culture they are now immersed. In season one, Huey and Riley debate R. Kelly, Huey directs "The Adventures of Black Jesus" for the school Christmas play, and Grandad opens up Woodcrest's first soul-food restaurant.

Professional Reviews

Toon Zone News 9 of 10
Aaron McGruder has managed tick off a lot off people with his newspaper comic, The Boondocks. In a sense, that's quite a feat because the format is probably one of the most constricted creative mediums. The strip has provoked angry letters, conservative media diatribues and have even been pulled from various papers (most notably from the Washington Post when McGruder did an arc on Huey trying to find Condoleezza Rice a boyfriend). McGruder should have the chance to tick off a lot more people as he takes on television, which isn't nearly as constricted. Adult Swim in particular can be pretty out there, and boy is McGruder making use of that. - Karl Olson

San Francisco Chronicle 9 of 10
The strip, and now the series, sets up a world where old and new schools collide, white and black perspectives clash, and race and class are never out of mind. But lost in the din of McGruder's politics and fierce skewering of black and white pop and political figures is a touching coming-of-age story with enough warmth to melt many of the sharp -- and hilarious -- edges. Right out of the gate, "The Boondocks" is a water-cooler series that lives up to the hype. - Tim Goodman
