"The Boondocks" Season 4 is an the award-winning animated series on Adult Swim.

In the series, Robert "Granddad" Freeman (John Witherspoon, "Friday After Next") is the cantankerous legal guardian of his rambunctious grandkids Huey and Riley (Regina King, "Southland" and "Ray") and has moved them from the south side of Chicago to the quiet and safety of "The Boondocks" (in this case, suburban Woodcrest), hoping that he can ignore them altogether and enjoy the golden years of his life in peace. But Huey, a 10 year old left wing revolutionary, is determined not to enjoy the affluence of suburbia. This attitude is seconded by his 8-year-old brother, Riley, a proud product of contemporary rap culture. Although they torture each other and provoke the neighborhood, they are no match for Granddad, who is eccentric even by "crazy-ass-old-black-man" standards.

Gary Anthony Williams ("Boston Legal") as Uncle Ruckus, Gabby Soleil ("Johnson Family Vacation") as Jazmine Dubois and Jill Talley ("Camp Lazlo") as Sarah Dubois round out the cast, with Cedric Yarbrough ("Reno 911!") returning as the voice of fan favorite Colonel H. Stinkmeaner in addition to Tom Dubois.

Season 4

Season 4 finds Huey, Riley and Granddad encountering a roster of characters, both new and familiar, in uproarious situations, including Granddad's dating a long lost Kardashian sister; their friend Tom DuBois acting as R&B bad boy "Pretty Boy Flizzy's" lawyer in exchange for relationship advice; Granddad's love affair with Siri on his new iPhone; and the Freemans' foray into the lethal black market of the hair-care industry a la "Breaking Bad."

Throughout the final season, an eclectic mix of hip-hop artists, actors, comedians and media personalities will voice guest characters on the series, including Jenifer Lewis ("Think Like a Man"), Dennis Haysbert ("24"), Busta Rhymes, Snoop Dogg, Ghostface Killah, CeeLo, Lil Wayne, Donald Faison ("Scrubs"), Aisha Tyler ("Balls of Fury"), Kym Whitley ("Reno 911!"), Tichina Arnold ("Everybody Hates Chris"), Mo'Nique ("The Parkers"), Marion Ross ("Happy Days"), Tavis Smiley, Terry Crews ("Brooklyn Nine-Nine"), Bill Duke ("X-Men: The Last Stand"), and Cedric the Entertainer ("Talk to Me"). Reprising their guest roles from last season are Xzibit, Charlie Murphy, MTV's Sway and Katt Williams, among others.

In 2007, the provocative series was recognized with the prestigious Peabody Award for the episode titled, "Return of the King," in which Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. awakens from a coma and reacts to contemporary phenomena from gangsta rap to the war on terror. In 2005, the series was nominated for a NAACP Image Award in the category of Outstanding Comedy Series.

"The Boondocks" is produced by Sony Pictures Television.
