Kid President is making his way from YouTube to the small screen in his new Hub Network series “Kid President: Declaration of Awesome.” In honor of the new series, which premieres Saturday June 7 at 7 p.m. ET/PT, Zap2it chatted with Kid President himself, Robby Novak, about his hopes and dreams for the show. 

Zap2it: After meeting Barack Obama and Beyonce, how did you decide on which guests
you want on your show?

Kid President: Meeting the President was so cool because he showed me his office. And Beyonce. Was. Awesome. I wanted to interview really cool people that would give me good advice on being a kid and creating cool stuff with Brad [Montague, brother-in-law and co-creator of Kid President].

What have you done as Kid President that you’re most proud of?
Socktober was really cool because we had lots of people around the world donating
clothes and food and supplies to their local homeless shelters. Now we’re doing something
this summer with ConAgra Foods and they are making sure kids have a hunger free
summer. People just need to watch our video!

What’s the best advice you’ve ever received?

My family always reminds me to be kind. To treat everyone like it’s their birthday. To give
everyone a corndog. Corndogs and cupcakes.

What was your favorite thing you learned this season?

In one episode I get to play the drums. And I really want to be an amazing drummer so
getting to do that was so cool!

Has meeting all of these people given you any aspirations to be president when
you grow up?

I don’t know if I want to be president when I grow up. But if I did there will be more dancing.
So much more dancing.

If you could appear on any other TV show, which would it be?

“Adventure Time”! I want to be animated.

Who is your dream interview?

Hugh Jackman. I want to interview Wolverine.
