Putney Swope (played by Arnold Johnson, voiced by Downey Sr.) sits on the board of a typically evil advertising firm as the token African-American member. When the old white guy in charge croaks mid-meeting, all of the impudent honkies on the board, being callous business-types, immediately vote for who will take his place while he's still dead on the table. Because they can't vote for themselves and they don't want to vote for any of the other jerks in the room they actually take seriously, they all vote for Putney, thinking no one else will vote for the black guy. Winning by an accidental landslide, Swope in turn fires everybody, save for a token white dude, renames the company Truth and Soul Inc., and vows to stop promoting products like alcohol and tobacco to children. Naturally, this doesn't sit well with the United States government, which prefers advertisers push poison on its people. Putney eventually sells out to corporate America and an aggressive POTUS, here played by a broken-English-sputtering, pot-puffing little person who goes by the moniker Mimeo (Pepi Hermine).
