Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Tuca & Bertie is an adult cartoon that takes place in a similar universe as Bojack Horseman, where characters are birds and other animals (and sometimes plants) that behave like humans. The show follows two 20-something women as they navigate familiar sitcom areas like moving in with a significant other or trying to get a promotion. The show contains some cartoonish violence, a liberal amount of profanity, including "f--k," "a--hole," and "s--t," and a wide variety of sexual situations, including simulated sex and female nudity. The show frequently involves complex issues such as alcoholism and sexual harassment.
Is It Any Good?
Pulling from a bottomless well of energy (and supported by an incredible cast), this series frenetically switches art styles to land jokes and confront complex everyday issues. Creator Lisa Hanawalt is giving absolutely everything she has to her first series (she previously gave BoJack Horseman its signature look).
Early on, Tuca & Bertie can't quite decide whether it wants to be a colossal rush of classic sitcom story subversion, or just an endless stream of memes, but it's exciting to watch as it settles into itself and finds its own unique voice.
Did we miss something on diversity?
Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
