A lot of female genitalia is seen, not for children!

Well, it's definitely an adult cartoon. 16+ is the very least I'd recommend. It's a great relatable show for adults but not for children. Very graphic scenes are shown, including breasts, female masturbation and sex references.
age 18+

An odd mixture of childish and adult

I don't recommend this show to anyone really. It lacks substance and tries to make up for this with excessive randomness, noise, and a rather annoying character. There is sexual content and substance use, which is fine, but in combination with everything else, it simply didn't work.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (5 ):
Kids say (8 ):

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.
