Based on the award-winning video game, THE CUPHEAD SHOW! follows the unique misadventures of loveable, impulsive scamp Cuphead and his cautious but easily swayed brother Mugman.
Released as 12 episodes running 12 minutes apiece, The Cuphead Show! is described as “a character-driven comedy series” following the receptacle-headed Cuphead and his brother Mugman on a carnival-themed adventure through the Inkwell Isles. The journey will bring them face-to-face with The Devil himself.
Tonally, the show seems to split the difference between a modern smart-aleck animated comedy and the simpler pleasures of the early cartoons that inspired its look; like the game, it mimics the rubbery animation, slapstick violence, surreal characters and mildly seedy air of the jazz-age cartoons of Max Fleischer.
The all-new streaming television series created by Chad and Jared Moldenhauer for Netflix and is produced by StudioMDHR and King Features Syndicate.
THE CUPHEAD SHOW! comes to Netflix this February.
