Big Mouth has been a huge hit with critics, receiving a 100% on Rotten Tomatoes to become Netflix’s highest-rated animated show, according to Big Mouth currently has 3 seasons and 21 episodes all together. Andrew Goldberg, a former Family Guy writer who co-created Big Mouth with comedian Nick Kroll (his best friend since childhood), Jennifer Flackett, and Mark Levin. A lot of the things in the episodes are over the top but some of the puberty things did happen to the writers or the writers’ friends in real life. The major theme in  would have to be that puberty sucks.

Being a writer for Big Mouth must be a crazy experience and one that you only get once in a life time.

Mark Levin, one of the show’s creators and executive producers told GameSpot, “We had all of our writers on day one bring a picture of themselves as an awkward-ass adolescent.” The name Big Mouth, comes from Kroll’s famously large mouth, which Goldberg said is drawn in the show to more or less realistic proportions for 12-year-old Nick Kroll. “Mark really empathized with [his son],” Goldberg said. “He was like, ‘Is there some way to use animation to create some sort of physical manifestation of the angst of puberty? And I said, ‘Like a hormone monster or something?'”  They were able to get it onto Netflix because of previously working with them.

The main characters are Nick Birch, an almost-adolescent boy living with loving and overprotective parents. He also has an older brother named Judd and an older sister named Leah. Maurice the Hormone Monster, also known as “Maury”, a monster who follows Andrew around and is responsible for his brooding sexual desires, which frequently occur at inappropriate moments. He is revealed to hail from an alternate dimension where several different creatures, such as himself, represent and manage the stages of human life. Jessi Glaser, a sarcastic and smart girl. Her father, Greg, is an unemployed stoner and her mother, Shannon, is secretly dating another woman. Andrew Glouberman, a young boy who spends much of his time furtively exploring his body. And lastly, Missy Foreman-Greenwald, a girl who is nerdy and kind. These are the basic main characters of the Tv show but there are many more characters that you see all the time.

The “weird” characters in Big Mouth are, Coach Steve, the middle school gym class teacher who is incompetent and overly talkative, often trying to get his colleagues—or even the students—to hang out (often to no avail). Rick the Hormone Monster, an old, dysfunctional yet enthusiastic hormone monster who follows Coach Steve and later Nick. And lastly, Jay Bilzerian, a hot tempered Armenian American boy who is obsessed with magic and sex. These are again only some of the “weird characters” in Big Mouth because there are some many. It’s Big Mouth what do you expect.
