Critic Reviews for Tuca & Bertie Season 1

All Critics (31) | Top Critics (12)

It's a consistent joy to watch the series bring that same richness to its characters' internal realities. Tuca and Bertie are still trying to figure things out, but the series handles their growing pains with tenderness and understanding.

In Hanawalt's hands, you'll feel wonderfully unbalanced, then tenderly comforted.

Top Critic

Bright, encouraging, and outrageous, watching "Tuca & Bertie" can feel like watching a particularly excellent Saturday morning cartoon.

Top Critic

Hanawalt's joyful, messy world is grounded by weird but unmistakably human performances from Haddish and Wong. This is a bright, squawking delight.

May 2, 2019 | Full Review…

Tuca & Bertie has the potential to break the glass ceiling for women-led adult cartoons.

Aug 26, 2019 | Full Review…

I really couldn't love it much more than I do.

Jul 22, 2019 | Full Review…

Let's hope other shows can catch up, so queer normativity and survivor autonomy can exist in the real world and not just in 2D.

Jul 10, 2019 | Full Review…

Tuca & Bertie handled a wide range of emotion in just one short season with the utmost humor and heart - and seeing it canceled before it even had a chance to grow is a blow to fans.

May 14, 2019 | Full Review…

Season 1 feels a little off balance, but the sincerity and quality of what is there more than makes up for it.

Jul 2, 2019 | Full Review…

[It's] a vibrantly colorful, delightfully surreal animated comedy that mashes up the best bits of those two shows with a playful, psychedelic edge.

    Really annoying series, couldn't watch a full episode, and i don't want to

    I really want to see what happens next with these characters. I was waiting for new episodes of this show that I love and of course it gets cancelled seemingly for no reason...

    I'm going to use a line directly from the trailer to sum it up; "Sh*t sh*t sh*t sh*t sh*t sh*t"
  • Sep 12, 2019
    To sum it up in one word, this show is weird. Not as funny as it could have been, and not as deep. The characters clearly have issues that need to be adressed, and yet through the serie these problems are barely acknowledged and only used as some sort of comedy tool, which really was cringeworthy and weird to watch. Serious issues like work-related sexual offences are treated in a messed up way, and in my opinion not reflecting reality today. In here every man is an asshole, in one way or another, which I really did not appreciate. Except for Speckle, who's really too patient, every male character has something deeply and/or sexually wrong, which is either represented as something funny or disturbing for the protagonist; while when it is one of the protagonist who's flawed then it is not really a big problem except for herself. Characters come and go, without putting anything to the story, except for a "haha hey look it's a plant". It could have been so much better.

    It was so quirky and fun - too bad there won't be another season ;__;

    Si vous aimez Bojack Horseman il y a de bonne chance que vous y trouveriez votre compte (...)

    Original and funny!
  • Sep 05, 2019
    just awful , terrible voice acting.
  • Aug 29, 2019
    Super annoying. Completely and utterly annoying on every level. I LOVE BoJack, and yes this isn't the same people making this, but just so it's clear it's not the animation style. The vocals, the music, the dialogue, everything about this show annoys the piss out of me.

    I LOVE THIS SHOW!! I can't stop replaying it! It's soooo refreshing, funny, clever, and emotionally mature!
