Cuphead was a returning classic of a game when it was released in 2017. The game was reminiscent of classic Disney animation styles and rubber hose animation. Now you can watch Cuphead and Mugman (his brother) on their adventures with the new show coming to Netflix on February 18, 2022.
Here’s the full synopsis from Netflix:
Based on the award-winning video game that burst onto the scene with a stunning retro animation style, THE CUPHEAD SHOW! is a character-driven comedy series that follows the unique misadventures of the loveable and impulsive thug Cuphead and his cautious but easily influenced brother Mugman. As the two travel their surreal homeworld of the Inkwell Islands in search of fun and adventure, they always support each other. Unless there’s only one cookie left, in which case it’s every cup for him. THE CUPHEAD SHOW! combines nostalgic delights, jaw-dropping gags and a healthy dose of heebie jeebies, especially when a ridiculously weird enemy, the devil himself, arrives on the scene to play with our heroes
The stars of the show Tru Valentino, Frank Todaro, Joe Hanna, Luke Millington-Drake, Gray Griffin, and wayne brady.
Globally, The Cuphead Show looks like a pretty fantastic extension of video games. They nailed the art style and animation of the video game perfectly. Head over to CupheadCountdown for exclusive content from the show!
