The Cuphead Show! Gets a Wild Trailer and Timely Netflix Release Date Status

It has been announced by Netflix that The Cuphead Show! The anime series adapted from Studio MDHR’s successful game Cuphead will launch on its service on February 18.

The streamer rolled out the first trailer for the series and a set of images, flaunting its dedication to the game’s distinctive, early-20th-century animation stylings.

What’s the Theme of the Series?

The series will have 12 episodes with an average run time of 12 minutes each, The Cuphead Show! is explained as “a character-driven comedy series” after the receptacle-led Cuphead and his brother Mugman on a carnival-themed adventure through the Inkwell Isles. The journey will prompt them to confront The Devil himself.

Overall, the show looks to break the distinction between a modern smart-aleck animated comedy and the simple amusements of the early cartoons on which its look is based; like the game, it imitates the rubbery animation, slapstick violence, surreal characters, and pretty seedy air of the jazz-age cartoons of Max Fleischer.

Undoubtedly, this incredible stylistic choice is what will have attracted Netflix towards the project, while some have mentioned that Cuphead is, although simple, celebrating an animation tradition with troublesome racist hints. However, the game, an old-school boss-rush shoot-’em-up, mustered more fame for its rigid difficulty.
