Notes

  1. ^ Premiered early online through the ShowtimeAnytime app on January 28, 2018.

Production[edit]

Background[edit]

The series is a spin-off from The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, which, since 2016, had featured a series of sketches featuring a cartoon caricature of Trump designed by Tim Luecke and voiced by Brian Stack. The sketches used Adobe Character Animator to allow Colbert to interact with the character in real-time.[29][30] The character was also featured in an animated short during Colbert's election night special for Showtime.[30][31]

Development[edit]

Following the online success of the sketches, Late Show showrunner Chris Licht suggested to Tim Luecke and Matt Lappin that they develop the concept into its own television series. In their pitch to Showtime, Luecke and Lappin described the potential series as a look "behind the scenes at the White House" and that their goal would be to "produce it as quickly as we possibly could so that we could begin to keep up with the news cycle."[32]

On July 27, 2017, Showtime announced that it had greenlit an animated series based on the sketches, with Colbert, Matt Lappin and Chris Licht as executive producers.[29][33] On December 18, 2017, it was announced that the series would premiere on February 11, 2018.[34][35] On March 8, 2018, Showtime announced that they were ordering an additional seven episodes of the series that are set to air during the summer of 2018. This order would bring the first season total of episodes up to seventeen.[36][37] On May 30, 2018, it was announced that the additional seven episodes of season one would premiere on July 15, 2018.[38] On August 22, 2018, it was announced that Showtime had greenlit a midterm elections themed television special from the series titled "Our Cartoon President: Election Special 2018". The episode was scheduled to air on November 4, 2018 and expected to feature appearances from the cartoon versions of Vladimir Putin, Rudy Giuliani, Bill Clinton, Hillary Clinton, and Barack Obama.[27] On January 22, 2019, it was announced that Showtime had renewed the series for a second season consisting of ten episodes.[39]

Release[edit]

Marketing[edit]

On December 18, 2017, Showtime released the first teaser trailer for the series.[34][35] On May 30, 2018, a trailer for the additional seven episodes of season one was released.[38] On October 31, 2018, a trailer for the "Our Cartoon President: Election Special 2018" television special was released.[40]

2018 White House Correspondents' Dinner[edit]

On April 28, 2018, a special three-minute video created by the cast and crew of the series aired during the 2018 White House Correspondents Dinner.[41]

Home media[edit]

On December 18, 2018, the series was released on DVD by CBS Home Entertainment and Paramount Home Media Distribution featuring all eighteen episodes from season one and the mid-term election special. The release also includes numerous bonus features such as episode commentary tracks, a featurette looking at the animation process, footage from the table read for episode eleven, and clips from The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, Stephen Colbert's 2016 Election Special, and The White House Correspondent's Dinner.[42]

Reception[edit]

The first season of Our Cartoon President has been met with a mixed to negative response from critics upon its premiere. On the review aggregation website Rotten Tomatoes, the first season holds a 35% approval rating with an average rating of 5.17 out of 10 based on 23 reviews. The website's critical consensus reads, "Sugar-coated satire, Our Cartoon President wavers between scathing social criticism and softball slings in a way that's as unsatisfying as it is uncomfortable."[43] Metacritic, which uses a weighted average, assigned the season a score of 42 out of 100 based on 11 critics, indicating "mixed or average reviews".[44]

Jack Nevins of The Guardian praised the show, calling it a farce that "nailed the Trump drama," and contrasting the show's surreal workplace comedy approach with the more reality and headline-driven approach of other late night comedy shows.[45] In contrast, USA Today critic Kelly Lawler reviewed Our Cartoon President negatively, describing it as "slight, dated and unsustainable". She also concluded that "Watching one episode is enough to get the point. Watching nine more feels unnecessary."[46] Ben Travers of Indiewire also reviewed the show unfavorably, calling it "a pointless, unfunny drudge" and criticized it for humanizing Trump.[47] In a mixed review, Brian Lowry of CNN wrote that "While Our Cartoon President certainly has its moments, the best news for Showtime might be it's only stuck with this experiment in quick-turnaround animation, at least initially, for 10 weeks." He also said that the show suffered from many of the same problems as That's My Bush!, a sitcom produced in 2001 satirizing the presidency of George W. Bush.[48] Matt Wilstein of The Daily Beast was more favorable, writing that "The biggest surprise [of the show] is how hilarious it is" and praising the show for being "remarkably adept at boiling down characters to their core traits, from Trump and his family to members of his Cabinet and Congress to the Fox News personalities he spends most of his day watching".[49]
