The cast of black-ish are getting the cartoon treatment!

The Johnson family – Yara Shahidi (Zoey), Marcus Scribner (Junior), Marsai Martin (Diane) and Miles Brown (Jack), along with Anthony Anderson (Dre), Tracee Ellis Ross (Rainbow), Jenifer Lewis (Ruby) and Laurence Fishburne (Pops) – all got animated for half of an upcoming one hour election special. The youngest Devonte Johnson, played by twins Austin and Berlin Gross, did not get the animated treatment.

Here’s a synopsis: Junior is excited for his first time voting but discovers he has been purged from the voter polls so he does a deep dive into why – trying to understand the systems in place for voter registration.

In part two, the animated episode, Dre’s colleague Stevens (Peter Mackenzie) makes an ill-advised decision to run for Congress, so Dre enlists his family’s help and campaigns against him but gets caught up with fundraising and private interest groups.
