I found out about Rick and Morty here on ATS so I thought that I could return the favor and mention this adult cartoon that I find to be as
entertaining, but completely different. That would be, "Big Mouth", a new adult cartoon that is shown exclusively on Netflix. I realize that not
everyone has Netflix, but I like this show so much that I wanted to spread the word.
I can only post links for some reason, so hopefully the link to IMDB will suffice and you can click on the short video showing a trailer that can
explain it better than I.
The show follows the daily lives of two boys, one being pre-pubescent and the other pubescent and all of the 'stuff' they go through along the way.
This is VERY ADULT, they do not pull any punches, they actually probably more juvenile stuff (but true) than Rick and Morty does. So far, I am about 5
shows in, in every episode it has dealt with masturbation, dating, wet dreams, menstrual cycles, etc. So when I say, "adult", I mean it, I would not
watch this with kids at all. =)
Even though each show deals with the aforementioned it actually has messages that have to do with every day things that pre-teens and teens go
through, but in an adult way.
There is also a, "Hormone Monster", (male and female) that I didn't care for 'at first', but after a couple of episodes I was really liking him
AND then her, they play such a pivotal role in there, and in a teens life, I remember my own personal hormone monster... =)
I'll be honest, at first I was not that enthralled with it, then after around 3 episodes I realized that I was hooked and I actually loved 'almost'
as much as Rick and Morty, which is my all-time favorite brain-killing cartoon.
Give this a chance, if you have a good sense of humor I am pretty sure that you'll also see the thinking that goes into the show. The supporting cast
is reall good also.
Oh yeah, in the 4th episode (I think) there is a lot of Seinfeld reference, they pulled it off too, all of the mannerisms were perfect.
Check it out when you have the time, although almost over the top in some instances I believe this is going to be a winner. (It does show that it
receives 8.2 stars on IMDB)
