Boondocks is a 30 minute animated comedy series for adult audiences that aired on the Cartoon Network's "Adult Swim". It was about a grandfather who becomes the legal guardian of his grandchildren and moves them from the south side of Chicago, Illinois to the peaceful and secure suburb of Woodcrest hoping that they all can revel in the more civilized atmosphere. His two grandsons, however, decide to bring their south side attitudes with them and neither granddad or the neighbors are too happy about it!

Reginald Hudlin helped McGruder to develop "Boondocks", but he left the project just 4 months before the first episode aired. McGruder and Hudlin had often made fun of the BET Network (Black Entertainment Television) in the past but, apparently, they didn't take offense. The reason Hudlin left Boondocks was to become the President of BET!
The word "Boondocks" actually comes from the Tagalog word "bundok" which means "mountain". Tagalog is a language spoken by more than 21 million people living in the Phillipines. U.S. Military personnel serving during the Spanish-American war brought the word back to the U.S. Eventually, "bundok" became transformed into "boondocks" and became a slang term for "the suburbs".
There were two episodes of Boondocks that were produced but were not broadcast. Their titles were, "The Hunger Strike" and "The Uncle Ruckus Reality Show".
