Netflix announces animated original series 'The Cuphead Show'

Cuphead Animated Series

King Features has shown itself to be mostly clueless when producing its own animation, but this project differs in that the series is being produced by Netflix Animation and the people on board are industry A-listers who understand the pastiche of early American animation styles that made the game a breakout success. The gorgeous game, made famous for its retro hand-animated style, insane boss-brawls, and challenging gameplay will come to life on television for the first time ever.

The character-driven comedy will follow the misadventures of Cuphead and his "cautious but easily swayed brother", Mugman across their home: the Inkwell Isles.

It's the first example of King Features plan to expand its character franchises across more media entertainment outlets, which it first announced back in February. The game is currently available on pretty much every platform you can think of (except for mobile, for now), including Xbox, Nintendo Switch, Win 10, Steam, GOG, and Mac. It's a mixture of run-and-gun fighting with multiple boss fights on each level and it's no easy task to finish it.

If you're using an Android phone, you've definitely seen apps asking for permissions when you run them for the first time. Even some apps developers have found ways to obtain Mac address and also steal handset's unique IMEI number.

Cuphead, with its lovely hand-drawn visuals, is one of the few games out there that lends perfectly to an animated adaptation.

Cuphead and Mugman are coming to Netflix.

The series will be executive produced by C.J. Kettler (Carmen Sandiego) on behalf of King Features, while the brothers that created Cuphead, Chad and Jared Moldenhauer, will serve as executive producers for Studio MDHR. Netflix Animation will produce the series, which will be executive produced by Emmy and Annie award victor Dave Wasson.
