Bordertown is an American animated sitcom created by Mark Hentemann, creator of MTV's 3-South, for the Fox Broadcasting Company. The series follows two families living in a Southwest desert town on the United States–Mexico border. Bordertown is a joint production by Bento Box Entertainment, Fuzzy Door Productions, 20th Century Fox Television, Hentemann Films and syndicated by 20th Television. On May 12, 2016, the series was canceled after one season. Bordertown takes place in the fictitious town of Mexifornia (which is on the border of California and Mexico). Mexifornia is said to be based on the town of Calexico, California, sharing a similar location and dynamic as Mexifornia. The two main characters are Bud Buckwald and Ernesto Gonzalez. Bud is a border agent living at 25200 Cedar Road with his wife, Janice Buckwald, and their three children, Sanford, Becky and Gert. Living next door to him is Ernesto Gonzalez, an ambitious immigrant and family man, who has been in the country less than 10 years and is happy to be with his family in the United States of America.
