2017 is nearly over and you've probably had enough of Trump, North Korea and Brexit.

As it's nearly Christmas you're all hopefully going to get a present or two to open on 25 December.

Well, the internet is providing one special gift a little early.

It's been reported that an animated series about the time-travelling crime-fighting adventures of Barack Obama and Joe Biden is in the works.

Just look at the poster!!!

This unbelievable bit of news has come about thanks to a successful Kickstarter created by the director of the series, Adam Reid back.

The campaign had a target of $100,000 dollars which was easily met by fans of the former President and Vice President.

The show will be called Barry and Joe and already has a high-profile name on its team.

As reported by Deadline, Conan O'Brien will be on board as an executive producer, along with Chris Prynoski and Ben Kalina from animation studio Titmouse, Inc.

If that didn't fill your heart with excitement just read the synopsis from the Kickstarter page:

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 Neil deGrasse Tyson.

A brilliant 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.

It sounds like a cross between Quantum Leap, Jonny Quest and Rick and Morty, but ten times better because it's Obama and Biden.

Speaking to Deadline, Reid admitted that working with Conan and Titmouse is a "creative dream come true," and that he is hopeful that they can find a home where we can all enjoy the show.

We can only imagine what the storylines might be, but you could easily use the memes for inspiration.
