Praise for The Cuphead Show:
“The Cuphead Show captures the essence of the popular game, giving fans old and new a surreal, exhilarating, chaotic, and all-around fun throwback cartoon with memorable characters and stunning animation.” –IGN
“The animation is superb, and the voice actors bring rich personalities to characters who were previously voiceless. The show stands on its own while also being filled with fun nods to the game–without ever feeling like unnecessary fan service.” –Gamespot
“The original hard-as-nails, boss-rush video game may not seem like an obvious candidate to turn into a fully-fledged series, yet Netflix’s new series is a love letter to Studio MDHR’s game that’s overflowing with charm and creativity.” –Gamesradar
“The Cuphead Show through and through is a blast to watch and is something that I imagine both fans of the video game and those unfamiliar with the franchise will find a lot to love.” –CBR
