We have a lot of animated television shows, which might look like cartoons at first. But the more we discover, the more we realize that the cartoon is actually for adults. Such shows are quite popular among adults viewers. These shows were popular in the 90s, and are still gaining views. Such shows are The Simpsons, The Family Guy, Beavis and Butt-head, King of the Hill, The Critic, Family Park, and many more. One such show is The Cuphead Show on Netflix, which has a vibe from the 90s. In conversation with Den Of Geek, the creator of the show, Wasson explains, “MDHR really went bananas with it, doing full-on traditional 2D animation, and really captured that style beautifully,” he says. “It was a real love letter to the cartoons of that era.”
The cartoon comprises some content that is not suitable for kids. The Cuphead Show is an animated series by Dave Wasson for Netflix, which inspired by a 2017 video-game Cuphead by Studio MDHR. As some of the adult content may be present in the show, we can consider, the show is not full for kids only. Nor the Cuphead and Magnum are younger like children.
The animated television series of Netflix released on February 18th, 2022, and received a lot of positive reviews from critics. Polygon claims the show is, “The series is seemingly content to just be the kind of show where something qualifies as a joke if it’s said loudly enough.”
How old are Cuphead and Mugman?
After doing some deeper analysis of the animated cartoon show, we realize Cuphead and Magnum are not children. They can be teenagers and older than that because they went to casinos to gamble. We can’t expect a kid to know everything about gambling. However, Netflix didn’t confirm their age, so we can only assume by their actions. Wesson claims the show is a fast-paced, slapstick comedy for kids. But there are enough materials for adults as well.
Woah! We managed to snag this account back, and ya'll have freed the Cuphead Show! Stream it now on @Netflix!! Mugman and I could not be more proud.#TheCupheadShow #Cuphead #Mugman pic.twitter.com/UObXRRQu9O

He expresses, “These characters have all different sorts of heightened emotions. There’s jealousy, greed, pride, and all that kind of stuff that I think is really relatable to adults because they can see qualities in these characters that they recognize in themselves. And that’s always really fun to laugh at.”

The show might be not as much as explicit as The Family Guy or The Simpsons. But it will definitely make you smile, more like animated sitcoms. The show has a bit of every emotion. Check out what the viewers are saying about the cartoon.
I love how people are whining that The Cuphead Show is a kids cartoon, can we take a break from deeper cartoons for a sec?

The graveyard episode of the Cuphead Show is my absolute favorite. I loved scary and Halloween cartoons as a kid, especially songs associated with them. It felt made for me.
Adore the show and can't wait for the next season.

Think @netflix should review the classification for The Cuphead Show. No way it’s a U. Should be a PG at the least.
Daughter found it on her kids profile, watched some, then needed a hug because it was frightening. Have added it to the restrictions list for her now.
