The Boondocks was created by Aaron McGruder, based on his comic book of the same name, and ran for four seasons from 2005 to 2014. It follows Huey Freeman and his wannabe gangster brother, Riley, both voiced by Regina King. They’re from an inner-city Black neighborhood but move to live with their grandfather in an affluent white suburb. The clash of cultures allows the show to poke fun at America’s social classes and racial stereotypes. Though occasionally controversial, it earned acclaim and a cult following for its sharp satirical humor.

You can currently watch The Boondocks on streaming platforms and pay-to-buy services, though where to find it is different depending on where in the world you are. In this article, we’ll help you find it whether you’re in the US, UK, Australia, or Canada.
