Page history last edited by PBworks 12 years, 8 months ago


The Boondocks began its life as a comic strip in The Diamondback, the student newspaper at McGruder's alma mater, University of Maryland, College Park. The strip later found its way into The Source magazine. Following these runs, McGruder began simultaneously pitching The Boondocks both as a syndicated comic strip and as an animated television series. [1] The former goal was met first, and The Boondocks debuted in newspapers in April 1999.

The Boondocks is an American animated television series created by Aaron McGruder for the Adult Swim programming block of Turner Broadcasting's Cartoon Network, based upon McGruder's comic strip of the same name. The Boondocks is a social satire of American culture and race, revolving around the lives of the Freeman family – ten-year-old Huey, his

younger brother Riley, and their grandfather, Robert.Like the comic strip, the show is influenced by McGruder's love of Japanese animation.[3] He cites Cowboy Bebop and Samurai Champloo as sources of inspiration for fight scenes.[4] The second season features segments animated by Japanese animation studio Madhouse.[5] As a result, the second season of the series has more detailed animation as well as minor updates for most of the character designs YouTube plugin error YouTube plugin error YouTube plugin error
