Monsters Inc. Hits Puberty in First Trailer for Netflix's Gross-Out Comedy Big Mouth

Puberty sucks. No one likes it or wants to remember it. So, obviously, it’s getting an entire series. Think Aaahh!!! Real Monsters, only the monsters are in your genitals.


Netflix has released the first full trailer for Big Mouth, an adult animated series from Nick Kroll where a bunch of girls and boys undergo the monstrous time of puberty... thanks to actual monsters. The show makes it clear that it’s not for kids— there’s an attack from a giant dildo and a literal talking vagina— but I don’t know if it’s for adults either. Because it’s kind of juvenile.

The trailer and clips aren’t super funny or original, and its main appeal is in being gross, but that’s been done before. To be honest, the trailer kind of feels like what happens when someone changes the lyrics to “The Assumption Song” to put in the dirty parts, as opposed to staying suggestive and letting our minds fill in the blanks. Sometimes, it’s more boring to be overt.


Frankly, I have no idea who this show is for, apart from the people who made it. In any case, Big Mouth comes out Sept. 29 and the trailer is below.
