(Newser) – Remember Barack Obama and Joe Biden? Well, they're coming back—in cartoon form! Maybe. Probably not. But maybe! NBC News reports Adam Reid, a filmmaker and commercial director, has launched a Kickstarter to produce Barry & Joe: The Animated Series. The "adult animated sci-fi sitcom" features Obama and Biden traveling back in time into their younger bodies to team up against President Trump and the Russians and save the future. They're aided in their quest by astrophysicist Neil DeGrasse Tyson, obviously. Reid, who admits Barry & Joe is "just leftist fan fiction meant to give solace to those who need some hope and healing," has a dream cast of Jordan Peele as Obama and Chris Pratt as Biden. He's trying to raise $100,000 by the end of August to produce a pilot. He's more than a quarter of the way there. (Read more cartoon stories.)
