If you watched the early Disney cartoons from the 1930s then you would see an obvious resemblance between that at what you will witness in Cuphead. The art style is extremely unique and the developers, MDHR, hit the nail on the head with their take on the era of cartoon characters. In fact, they got it so right that an animated series is heading to Netflix.
The new animated comedy will expand upon the characters and world of the game, which centers on titular hero Cuphead and his brother Mugman who make a deal with the devil in a high-stakes gambling match.
C.J. Kettler (Carmen Sandiego) will exec produce for King Features while Cuphead creators (and brothers) Chad and Jared Moldenhauer will serve as executive producers for Studio MDHR. The series will be produced by Netflix Animation and is executive produced by Emmy and Annie award winner Dave Wasson (Mickey Mouse Shorts). Cosmo Segurson (Rocko’s Modern Life: Static Cling) serves as co-executive producer.
When exactly that is, we still don’t know. But, Netflix is surely signing up all the right game-to-series conversions. We guess their E3 attendance wasn’t just by chance. Expect more of these surprises to pop up in the coming years.
