Jay Bilzerian, Jason Mantzoukas’ character, will have you laughing till your voice cracks with the way he goes around acting like the most mature kid in the schoolyard. Nick Kroll stars as Andrew, one of the main characters of the show that deals with a lot of misfortunes after going through puberty. A typical episode will consist of the kids being at school, and their hormone monsters magically popping in and out to give them advice. This series mostly deals with sexual situations, so if you’re looking for more of a family-friendly series the next best series is Avatar: The Last Airbender.


The characters have a dorky style of drawing compared to the realistic puppet style of The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance. As the kids get through a school day, expect to see the hormone monsters appearing in and out of their lives, while also interacting with other hormone monsters around them. Most of the time you will be laughing at the hormone monsters because of their looney tunes appeal. Aside from the kids and monsters, there are also subplots for the adults around them, which keeps the series entertaining.

This is a series that focuses on the phenomenon of puberty. Because of this, it can sometimes feel redundant as the kids go through similar problems at different times. The development these characters go through is worth a watch. Overall, this show is good because it reminds us of the days where puberty was a significant part of our lives. After this animated comedy, take a dark turn into the world of Walter White in Breaking Bad or continue the laughs with Dear White People.

Big Mouth Review Wrap Up

If I had a hormone monster during my stages of puberty I can’t begin to imagine all the fun we would’ve had. Thankfully, Nick Kroll filled this series with hilarious hormone monsters giving advice to increasingly aroused kids. It is worth a watch to see these kids and monsters work together to get through their body changes.
