Watchseries; Set in the surreal and fantastical world of the Inkwell Isles, the series follows the misadventure of two young anthropomorphic cups, the brash and impulsive Cuphead (Tru Valentino) his brother the cautious and timid but comparatively more level headed Mugman (Frank Todaro). The two cups often cause headaches for their caretaken Elder Kettle (Joe Hanna) and are often involved in run-ins with The Devil (Luke Millington-Drake) after Cuphead unwittingly ended up owing is soul to him and rand from the debt.

The Cuphead Show! Is an adaptation of the video game Cuphead by Studio MDHR. The game received praise not only for it's engaging "Bullet Hell" style gameplay, but also its impressive animation which utilized many of the animation techniques of its stylistic influences. With creative influence from Studio MDHR and featuring some impressive animation techniques that mostly successfully mirror both the game and its Golden Age animation influences, The Cuphead Show! Is an enjoyable ride through surreal comic nonsense.

The animation looks fantastic. While the show didn't use the exact same technique due to time constraints, the show still maintains the same aesthetic appeal seen in the games with some great inclusion of stop-motion animation for certain sequences interacting seamlessly with the 2D figures. The environments of the Inkwell Isles are loving crafted with familiar locales from the games showcased and expanded upon for Cuphead and Mugman's misadventures. Some scenes sometimes do break the illusion of immersion such as a party scene in the episode Root Packed where some of the party goers look static and/or floaty on the physical backdrop, but the show's ambition makes up for flubs like that.

Cuphead and Mugman are fun characters with Cuphead's more carefree irresponsible attitude counterbalanced by the more cautious and unfortunately all too aware Mugman with their dynamic creating solid comic friction as the duo encounter. The show also gives expansion on the personalities of various bosses and side-characters from the games with boxing frog brothers RIbby and Croaks, Cuphead and Mugman's parental figure Elder Kettle, the trio of freeloading vegetables The Root Pack, and hands down the best character The Devil whose portrayal by Luke Millington-Drake gives a dry affected vaguely British sounding delivery to the character whose explosive rage and frusturation at not getting Cuphead's soul reminded me of David Warner's performance in cult show Freakazoid! As The Lobe who exhibited many of the same traits.

Uncommon for this era of streaming, there's not really a "running narrative" compelling viewers to binge the series with each episode about 10 minutes long and being relatively self-contained. Aside from the first episode setting up Cuphead owing his soul to The Devil, it's not a primary focus and is more used as an excuse to create comic friction with a recurring antagonist and still allows the cartoons to function as self-contained comic set pieces. The show also features some really good music and songs, done by Ego Plum, throughout the series with a particular standout piece being the episode "Ghosts Ain't Real" with some really fun and even a little macabre that harkens back to horror themed animation shorts like Swing You Sinners or The Lonesome Ghosts. The show does "season bait" in its final episode which sees the introduction of new character Ms. Chalice, and for the most part the character's introd

The Cuphead Show! watchseries. I was so excited for the show. It had extremely high potential. The show has top-tier animation art style. That is the only thing that could keep me watching this show. It is geared completely for kids. Is most accurately a simple combination of SpongeBob and Mickey Mouse sadly. Not to say it is not original as it is very much so. They could have easily made something that still didn't have any mature content but was much more appealing and drawing in story to adult audience as well. There are some occasional notably clever and great dilague quicks and moments.

The episodes are short and sweet, lasting around 12 minutes each, not counting the credits. It tells a stand alone story for each episode, following the two brothers and their mischievous, wacky and insane adventures, bringing in familiar faces from the original video game. It uses the effects, sounds and music from the game, while adding new tracks into the mix. They build on the characters, whom didn't even have a much of a voice cast in the game, but they do know, and it works wonderfully. The actors do an amazing job at capturing the essence and childishness of the two cups, while the devil and dice sound just as you would have imagined.

It brings over the classic cartoon art style from the game, while middling with modern humor and timing. Cuphead and Mugman have great banter, bringing with it some pretty funny and memorable moments, making you want to keep watching at the end of each episode. The animation is of course one of its greatest selling points, and it's a feat for the eyes. Looking like the game, something out of the animation from the 1930's, just modernized, paying homage to manny of the wacky set pieces and traits of that era of animation. Even if you haven't played the game, fell of it or know nothing about Cuphead, you will easily be able to follow the story and have a fun and light hearted time.

The show does a great job at taking the groundwork from the game and bringing the characters to life. Telling funny and charming short stories, about a cup, a mug and friends, which works wonderfully as yet another addition to Netflix's growing catalogue of video game adaptations!

8/10.

I played Cuphead and I really want to love this game but it's way too hard for me but the Netflix series the show was great it has a nice animation like the 1930's feel, great voice acting, the characters are likeble and sometimes cuphead loved causing trouble but he's not a jerk he cared about his brother his mentor and his friend Ms. Chalice like Bill & Ben from Thomas & Friends (Original Series & Fan Series) the show really is amazing to watch while I wait for Sonic The Hedgehog 2 (2022), Sonic Prime, Sonic Origins a compilation game, and Sonic Frontiers a brand new Sonic game 2022 is going to be amazing year but for the CupHead one positive I like the storyline well pretty solid but the game to be honest opinion it's just too much for me the controls are kinda slippery, the bosses are way too hard, the gameplay while nice but hard, it's just way too hard for me.

I absolutely love this style of animation. And of course it brings up those old Disney animation from way back feels. Sure many those older cartoons are ripe with stereotypes and racial insensitive caricatures but the style of animation is quite unique. It is truly something special that isn't done anymore. Closest thing I could think of is Animaniacs.

It is funny how a punishing video game no one ever expected has developed a massive following which in turn is the reason we get these wonderful episodes. I hope this is a success for Netflix and that we'll get more in the future.

I would give this a 10 but the episodes are enjoyable I think Cup Man and Mug Man are here to stay and become the next Netflix classic. Can't wait for another season.
