This is a good show. It's by Lisa Hanawalt. It's on Netflix. But most importantly...



It's ok to admit your Tuca & Bertie crush! Who is yours?

    The notable thing about this show is it deals with a lot of the same way too real themes as Bojack, but with an undercurrent of love, support, and positivity, rather than crushing nihilism with the tiniest glimmer of hope

    I just started watching it and it definitely goes on this weird path of me not being sure I'd get through the first episode to me wanting to watch it all in one day. Somewhere around there croissant battle it sort of clicked.

    Yeah, that first episode felt like a drag to get through the latter half off.

    And then the rest (well, up to ep8 for me) has being a delight.

    I absolutely love this show. It's super absurdist, like all the side animal puns in the background of Bojack made into a show.

    The animation (even the in between scene animations) have made me laugh out loud.

    Great focus on female issues and empowerment, too. I really hope it continues like this and doesn't get too nihilistic a la Bojack. I love that show too, but I appreciate this show being different.

    The trailer for this did not appeal to me at all, but if you folks are saying it's good maybe I should check it out. When have random people on the internet ever steered me wrong.

    Bojack cares about realism to a degree while I love how Tuca and Bertie doesn't give a whit about realism.

    The jelly lake probably would have had a billion jokes made by characters about how it makes no sense if it were in Bojack.
    I hope the giant not enemy crab shows up again.

    I just finished it. I want to change my vote from Sex Bugs to the swimming coach. Also, I really liked it - it was less dark than Bojack. Sometimes I feel like shows try too hard to be edgy just to get word of mouth (which is how I felt about Big Mouth) but this one didn't feel that way at all to me.

    The thing with Speckle is he's a properly complex male character, which is kind of rare in television. He's supportive of his girlfriend but struggles to find the line between making concessions and asserting himself when his needs in the relationship aren't being met. He's agreeable almost to a fault but gets a bit tunnel vision with things he cares about, which is a pretty common thing, both for characters on television and people irl, but since the show isn't tied to his perspective, it's a lot easier to notice it happening. He's nuanced, and flawed, but Bertie cares about him and she seems justified in doing so.

    Most people would have broken up with Bertie well before the end of the season for good reasons so I assume he legitimately loves and supports her overall despite not being oblivious to her mental health problems.

    Like he knows Tuca is important to Bertie and doesn't want to force Tuca out of their life.

    I was really struck by the Tuca/Speckle dynamic. Like I'm not sure I've ever seen a show like this where the sort-of-normie boyfriend character not only tolerates, but actually works to establish his own dynamic with the "crazy friend". Almost none of the drama in the Tuca and Speckle episode came from the two of them clashing. Even before Speckle got trashed they were finding their vibe

    The joke about the kind of porn Speckle likes was hilarious.

    The baker penguin is clearly the worst character in the series.

    I love the surrealist elements of this show. It reminds me of a children's cartoon, like an Animaniacs or an Adventure Time or a Rocko's Modern Life. It's something we don't really see that often in adult animation, despite the fact that when it shows up in children's cartoons, it's frequently used in the service of jokes for adults that will fly under the radar of children.

    Also the show is very good overall and I watched a lot of it while very hungover yesterday, which was either a very good or very bad idea. Very.

    We see surrealist stuff crop up in adult cartoons from time to time, but in most shows it's treated as a sort of transient reality. Like something nonsensical happens but it's only as part of a gag and it's never acknowledged again and isn't shown to be a permanent part of the world (and often completely disregarded in future scenes). This show lives in its weird tangents. Things that seem to start as a just a sight-gag carry through the episode and are given plot agency and are allowed to develop and expand. It's a bit disorienting at times but really refreshing

    If Bojack is completely unwatchable for me due to it essentially activating my depression, should I still give this a shot?

    I think so, yes.

    It deals with serious stuff still, like, it's not all light and breezy fun, but it's not fundamentally about that serious stuff. And there is a lot of light and breezy fun in it - it's a show that is about celebrating its main characters, not exploring their depths. So even if they do have problems (and Tuca and Bertie both have issues that they are working through within the show), they're not... the point of the characters, y'know?

    More importantly, I think, the core of the show is the fact that Tuca and Bertie are genuine friends. In spite of their respective problems, they support one-another. If Bojack is a look at how hard it is to build a social safety net after a lifetime of pushing people away, Tuca and Bertie is a look at how having a strong connection with someone makes you more capable.

    I have been obsessed with this show since I started watching it

    I'm watching it with my wife and we're only 6 episodes in and she wants to take a slower pace but I want to mainline it so I just keep watching episodes over and over

    I haven't gotten tired of any of it and I think it's actually just wearing a firmer groove in my brain, like I'll sing Tuca's cup o' sugar song to myself in the kitchen

    So many great things about this show - the intro, the transition animations between scenes

    Also my crush is either on Draca or Dapper Dog

    I found it a bit too high energy. I think bleak nihilism is more my style.

    it's unclear what the specific taxonomy of Lisa Hanawalt's animal-people designs are but she fuckin' loves boobs as imagery so you better bet she's gonna find excuses to give 'em to to as many people and things she can

    she guested on College Humor original series Cartoon Hell a few weeks ago and, when the hosts failed to provide enough udder for her, drew a creature that was all udder.
