An astronaut named Gary and his planet-destroying sidekick called Mooncake embark on serialized journeys through space in order to unlock the mystery of where the universe actually ends and if it actually does exist.
During the Electric Slide number at Jessi's Bat Mitzvah, Matthew is seen and heard doing lots of vocal runs and singing dramatically in the background. Andrew Rannells, who plays Matthew, is a popular Broadway star who is known for singing overly dramatic showstoppers. See more »
This show was exactly what you would expect out of a show about tween kids going through the first few stages of puberty. While yes, the idea of a "hormone monster" provided the series with a hilarious back-and-forth between the monster(s) and the kids, the show was raunchy. This is for a very select audience.
The star-studded roster was probably the reason that "Big Mouth" was green-lighted on Netflix (it's tough to turn down Kroll, Mulaney, Peele, and others). I was not expecting the show to turn from straight puberty jokes to a cartoon musical. However, I must admit that the show went from slightly above average to hilariously clever when John Mulaney did his musical number about being gay, featuring homosexual legends that have passed from this world.
John Mulaney is a national treasure.
