HOLLYWOOD, Calif. (November 1, 2018) – The hilarious animated series about life inside the White House under Cartoon President Donald Trump, OUR CARTOON PRESIDENT: SEASON ONE WITH WORLD CLASS AMENITIES, arrives on DVD on December 18 from CBS Home Entertainment and Paramount Home Media Distribution.

OUR CARTOON PRESIDENT: SEASON ONE WITH WORLD CLASS AMENITIES follows the truish misadventures of the 45th President of the United States as he faces natural disasters, the Russian collusion investigation and the temptation to nuke anyone who suggests he should eat a salad. In this parallel cartoon universe, the Commander-in-Chief opens the White House doors for an “all access” look at his day-to-day life. A satirical animated series, OUR CARTOON PRESIDENT examines the quintessentially Trumpian details of the presidency and those that run in his presidential circle from wildly out of touch Democrats and members of the media to his puppy-brained sons Don Jr. and Eric. When you’re finished screaming, laugh about what America has become in the era of OUR CARTOON PRESIDENT.
