The Boondocks tells the story of Huey and Riley, two kids who move from Chicago�s South Side to the suburbs with their Granddad, Robert Jebediah Freeman. In moving to the quiet and safety of �The Boondocks��a.k.a. suburban Woodcrest�it�s Granddad�s hope that he can ignore his rambunctious grandkids and enjoy the fourth quarter of his life in peace. But Huey, a 10-year-old leftist revolutionary, and his 8-year-old misfit brother Riley don�t adapt to the new environment as well as expected. Although the boys torture each other and provoke the neighborhood, they are no match for Granddad, who is eccentric even by �crazy-ass-old-black-man� standards.
