Cuphead was a throwback classic of a game when it was released in 2017. The game called back to classic animation styles of Disney 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 smashed onto the scene with a gorgeous retro animation style, THE CUPHEAD SHOW! is a character-driven comedy series following the unique misadventures of loveable, impulsive scamp Cuphead and his cautious but easily swayed brother Mugman. As the two scour their surreal homeworld of the Inkwell Isles in search of fun and adventure, they always have each other’s back. Unless there’s only one cookie left, in which case it’s every cup for himself. THE CUPHEAD SHOW! combines nostalgic delights, side-splitting gags, and a healthy dose of the heebie jeebies—especially when a ridiculously weird nemesis, The Devil himself, arrives on the scene to toy with our heroes
The show stars Tru Valentino, Frank Todaro, Joe Hanna, Luke Millington-Drake, Grey Griffin, and Wayne Brady.
Overall, The Cuphead Show looks like a pretty fantastic extension of the video games. They nailed the art style and animation of the video game perfectly. Go to CupheadCountdown to get some exclusive content from the show!
