What The Critics Say (Metascore 43)
- The series, a purported behind-the-scenes look at the Trump administration, has its intermittent funny moments, and the character designs of the people who populate Trump’s cabinet are entertaining. But the story that’s grafted onto the first episode — Trump has to find an anniversary gift for Melania — is sitcom-trite and reminiscent of the old Comedy Central series “That’s My Bush.” — Rob Owen, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
- The caricatures in the series are great, the voices are pretty good, and the jokes are OK. The only real problem with “Our Cartoon President” is that half the country doesn’t need it and the other half doesn’t want it. — David Wiegand, San Francisco Chronicle
- More often, Our Cartoon President manages to be mean and toothless at the same time. … The show is just timely enough to be outdated. — James Poniewozik, The New York Times
