Big Mouth explores puberty while embracing a frankness about the human body and sex. The first season, consisting of ten episodes, came on Netflix on September 29, 2017 and the second season was released on October 5, 2018.
It consists of 4 season and is all about a bunch of children who go through puberty it is grotesque and very unflattering, it focuses on the gross reality of growing up and going through puberty it allows people to see the worst sides of being a teenager through funny jokes and grotesque cartoons, it shows puberty as hormone monsters who are these monsters that appear and follow the children encouraging them to act out in what some would say inappropriate ways but also can be the gross reality of puberty, there is also the shame wizard who comes down and make the children feel shame and the anxiety bug who fly’s around making people feel anxious and also the depression kitty who haunts children making them feel depressed, it is a very visual representation of how teenagers are feeling.
I thought it was a very interesting watch and also very educational as it shines lights on things that may not be spoken about enough for example porn addiction for young boys and masturbation, how children develop differently it also shows how neglected children would think in more strange ways about the world and act out differently especially when going through puberty. It shines lights on teachers acting in inappropriate ways towards children so it gives you a wide range every spectrum of growing up as a teenager and brings it all into the light so viewers can see what may be going on but people are too awkward to talk about. I expected it to just be that inappropriate cartoon, but it turned out to be so much more than that it had a great storyline as well as being educational and reassuring to teenagers who might be unsure about something or having a hard time especially when they are going through puberty I liked how grotesque it was because it felt it actually shows the unpleasant side of human nature which is still strange but needs to be understood more.
The part I liked the most was how they made one of the main characters someone who still hadn’t hit puberty and that made it that bit more exciting when something big happened for him. It just showed that in reality we all don't just hit puberty when we want to and we're not all going to be big we all develop different and that’s okay. This show was so good that on the last episode I found it very funny and grew attached to the characters meaning I actually felt sad when 2 of the main characters friendship broke up. Over all the show is very entertaining because it has adult humour, education, drama, romance and creatively made characters which complete the show.
