88-second (or less) 8FLiX binge brief & review:

Big Mouth is a 2-season, 20-episode Netflix Original animated series created by comedian Nick Krull.


Big Mouth is currently streaming worldwide on Netflix.


The spoken language is English, and Netflix offers subtitles in several languages, including French, German, Spanish and Italian. There may be more language options available in your area.


Big Mouth is rated TV-MA. Don't let the animation fool you. This cartoon is not for children. There is a seriously-adult amount of coarse language, nudity (animated), sexual situations and themes.


Big Mouth, in short, makes fun of, and highlights what we all did (and thought about) as adolescents and other shows are afraid to air. Big Mouth is like Family Guy without a filter or censors, and it's really eff-ing funny.


If this series were a live-action series, there'd be arrests and outrage, regardless of how true everything the "Hormone Monster" says, or how "as a matter of fact" the ideas, thoughts and actions of the protagonists are.


Big Mouth is unlike anything you've ever seen before. I watched every episode (all 20 of them!) back to back, and laughed all the way through it.


If you don't want to know what your teenager is doing or thinking, don't watch this series. If you want to embarrass them, watch it with them. Call it payback, for all the misery they've given you. 😂😂😂


Happy bingeing! 🍿 - Nick Runyeard

Nick Kroll and John Mulaney to Voice Central Characters to the New Original Animated Series

Additional Voice Talent Includes Maya Rudolph, Jason Mantzoukas,

Jordan Peele, Fred Armisen, Jenny Slate, and Jessi Klein.

Beverly Hills, CA, June 13, 2016 -- Netflix has ordered to series Big Mouth, a 10-episode, half-hour edgy, surreal animated comedy from real-life best friends Nick Kroll (Kroll Show, The League) and Andrew Goldberg (Family Guy) about teenaged adventures in puberty. The show will premiere everywhere Netflix is available in 2017.

Comedian John Mulaney (John Mulaney: The Comeback Kid, Saturday Night Live) will lend his voice to the character of Andrew, while Kroll will obviously voice Nick. Maya Rudolph (Maya & Marty, Bridesmaids), Jason Mantzoukas (The League, Lady Dynamite), Jordan Peele (Keanu, Key and Peele), Fred Armisen (Portlandia, Documentary Now!), Jenny Slate (Girls, Lady Dynamite) and Jessi Klein (Inside Amy Schumer) are among the other actors who will lend their voices to the series.

Kroll, Goldberg and screenwriter-directors Mark Levin & Jennifer Flackett (Little Manhattan, Nim’s Island) are all creators and executive producers on the series. Big Mouth is a Netflix production.

“There are few things that keep me up at night….Nick Kroll’s adventures in puberty is one of them, so we greenlit this series with very few questions asked,” said Cindy Holland, Netflix vice president of original content.

"Andrew and I have been best friends since 1st grade, so this show is over 30 years in the making. I can't wait to tell all the stories that make up the glorious nightmare of puberty," commented Nick Kroll.

Nick Kroll is the creator and star of the critically acclaimed series Kroll Show, which aired on Comedy Central, and he co-starred as ‘Ruxin’ in the hit FX series,The League. In 2013, Kroll was honored with the BREAKOUT STAR OF THE YEAR award at the Just For Laughs Comedy Festival in Montreal. He will next be seen on the big screen in Jeff Nichols’ upcoming feature, Loving, which premiered at the 2016 Cannes Film Festival, as well as the New Line feature, The House. He will also appear in the upcoming animated feature films, Seth Rogen's Sausage Party, Illumination's, Sing and Dreamworks’, Captain Underpants. Kroll recently completed his nationally sold out tour and rave-reviewed off-Broadway run of Oh, Hello, which he co-created, co-wrote and co-starred in alongside John Mulaney.

Andrew Goldberg is a writer-producer who began his career at FOX’s animated comedy Family Guy where he rose to the rank of Co-Executive Producer. His feature script, The Wedding for CBS Films, appeared on the 2011 Black List. Kroll and Goldberg met in first grade and quickly became best friends. Their legendary lip-sync performance of Queen’s Don’t Stop Me Now at Camp Wildwood in 1992 remains infamous to this day. This collaboration has been 30 years in the making.

John Mulaney was named one of Variety’s “10 Comics to Watch” in 2008--the same year he began working at Saturday Night Live where he appeared as a “Weekend Update” correspondent and co-created characters such as “Stefon” with Bill Hader. In 2014 he created and starred in FOX’s comedy Mulaney and in November he released his third comedy special The Comeback Kid on Netflix. Mulaney’s previous comedy specials include The Top Part released in 2009 and a Comedy Central Special and Album New In Town in 2012. Upon review of New In Town, hailed Mulaney as “one of the best stand-up comics alive.”
