Plot Synopsis

Executive produced by Stephen Colbert, OUR CARTOON PRESIDENT is a half-hour animated parody series that follows the tru-ish misadventures of the 45th President of the United States, Donald J. Trump, and his merry band of advisors and family members. This 10-episode series examines the quintessentially Trumpian details of the presidency and his most important relationships, and no one is safe -- from his close family and confidants to key political figures from both parties and members of the media. In this parallel cartoon universe, the Commander-in-Chief opens the White House doors for an "all access" look at a typical day in the life of the President of the United States. On January 28, 2018 -- two weeks before the official series premiere on Sunday, February 11 -- Showtime released a sneak peek of the series premiere on Facebook and, in anticipation of the State of the Union Address. After a three-month break, OUR CARTOON PRESIDENT returned with new episodes on Sunday, July 15, 2018 at 10:30pm ET/PT on Showtime. In the mid-season premiere, "Russia Investigation," the president tries to survive the Russia investigation with Steve Mnuchin's help while Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer fire up Democrats with a new message.

The 10-episode second season of OUR CARTOON PRESIDENT premiered on Sunday, May 12, 2019 at 8pm ET/PT on Showtime. Season 2 features President Trump trying to convince the American people that he's the greatest, least criminal president in history as House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senator Chuck Schumer attempt to win back the Democratic base from newcomer Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Episodes include - Trump convincing the American people to pay for Trump Tower-Moscow, proving he's mentally fit enough to possess the nuclear codes and solving climate change to stop his sweating problem, all with help from his cabinet and kids Don Jr., Eric and Ivanka. The series will also follow the candidates fighting for the 2020 Democratic nomination - including Beto O'Rourke, Kamala Harris, Bernie Sanders, and Pete Buttigieg - and introduce new characters Kellyanne Conway, Elon Musk, Jeff Bezos, and My Pillow CEO Mike Lindell. Season 2 guest voices include: Tim Robinson as Justice Brett Kavanaugh; Ziwe Fumudoh as Kamala Harris; and comedians Matt Rogers as Bill Shine and Alise Morales as Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. In the season opener, "Trump Tower-Moscow," the President declares a national emergency to build Trump Tower-Moscow while Democratic leaders Nancy Pelosi and Senator Chuck Schumer attempt to win back their base from newcomer Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. QUEER EYE's Jonathan Van Ness appears as an animated version of himself in this episode.
On Sunday, July 14, 2019 at 8pm ET/PT, Showtime premiered the Season 2 finale of OUR CARTOON PRESIDENT. In the season ender, "Space Force," the Cartoon President launches Space Force without any attention to detail while the Democratic presidential candidates tank their campaigns to avoid the risk of losing to Cartoon Donald Trump.
