We all know what it’s like going through puberty; nothing makes sense, you can’t think straight, your body starts playing jokes on you and no matter who you are, there always seems to be someone going through it much better than yourself.
But for some reason, very few TV shows or films have decided to cover this. In general, they opt for the tail end of puberty to when people are more of less fully grown, or just before it.
You’d have thought that the awkward stage of your voice not matching your body would be a goldmine for content, but we never really got much about it; that was until Netflix’s Big Mouth came along.
Now, the truth is that Big Mouth isn’t actually really aimed towards the people who are going through the same things as the protagonists but, as an adult, it’s pretty fun to look back on the scenarios and thank our lucky starts that we don’t have to contend with them anymore.
With that, it’s lovely to hear that season three is one the way and, while we don’t have an official release that, we know that it will be this Autumn.
Composer Mark Rivers, the mercurial genius behind many of the songs told Yahoo about a new 80’s rock song that will come courtesy of Maury, saying:
“It’s pretty funny, and it’s a rocker, as you might guess. It’s an ‘80s metal song called “Anything Goes In Florida.” There’s an episode that is set in Florida, and all kinds of crazy sh*t happens—because it’s Florida. So, Maury sings about it, and his voice sounds a bit like Lemmy Kilmister from Motörhead.
There are a handful of other songs I’m pretty excited about. Martin Short has a guest appearance in Season 3, and he sings a patter song about the spectrum of sexuality, which came out really great. Because he’s Martin Short; of course it did.”
Meanwhile, co-creator Andrew Goldberg told Metro:
“We’re deep into animation right now. We do some rewriting at the art and animation phase, but the show is mostly pretty set. We’re still fixing things that don’t quite work or changing things that don’t quite look right, but we’re into it.
When we first started, we were constantly worrying about whether we would have enough stories to tell. But so far, rather than scraping for ideas, we’re finding that we can’t do everything we want to do in a season. Some things we have to save for a season 4 for beyond.“
Season four?! Zing!
So there you have it. Only a few months now…
Nothing wrong with a bit of retrospective and relatable comedy wrapped up in the ugliest cartoon characters you’ve ever seen. Nothing wrong at all.
