Just in case you think we're taking the mick or anything, the series counts Conan O'Brien and Titmouse (which are behind The Venture Bros. and Metalocalypse) as its producers.

Yes, an animated series in which Barack Obama and Joe Biden are transported back into their younger selves to help defeat the evil forces of the Soviet Union and Donald Trump - who, by the way, is never seen in the series - is now entering production and will likely hit screens in the next year or so.

Still think we're joking? Here's the official synopsis.

Moments after the inauguration of the forty-fifth President, Barack Obama and his best friend Joe Biden were escorted to a secret lab, run by a team of the world's greatest scientists and occasionally Elon Musk.

Obama and Biden were asked to take off all of their clothes and hold very still in a fetal position until they felt a painful tingling sensation.

They would awake to find themselves inside of their younger selves. Driven to find each other, and together, change history for the better.

Their only guide on this journey is a scientist from the present who appears in the form of an augmented reality that only they can see and hear.

And so they find themselves leaping throughout their own lifetime. Looking for the best in people... Striving to right injustice wherever they find it. Forever hoping that their next jump in time will take them to a future that’s not scary and fucked up.

A world which they can proudly call… home.

The series initially began as a Kickstarter project and managed to raise up to $100,000 before Conan O'Brien and Titmouse came on board as producers, which creator Adam Reid has described as "a creative dream come true."

There's no word yet on voice casting, but expect there to be plenty of buzz around this. Here's the official poster for the series.
