Created by the producer of “BoJack Horseman,” the equally-charming “Tuca & Bertie” is set in a similar world of anthropomorphic animals. It follows the everyday adventures of Tuca (Haddish), a confident toucan, and her best friend Bertie (Wong), an anxious song thrush. The 30-something bird-women live in the same apartment building and spend almost all of their time together, doing simple things like running errands to trying to move up in their careers. “Tuca & Bertie” has been praised for its diverse cast and sensitive handling of serious topics, not to mention its enchanting animation style.
“Tuca & Bertie” was canceled after its first season, and fans were not happy. Sites like Gizmodo reported that fans felt the show didn’t get a chance to gain a wider audience due to its short-lived run, as well as Netflix’s notorious algorithm. Soon after the cancellation, however, fans got the best news ever — Adult Swim picked up the show for a second season. “Tuca & Bertie” creator Lisa Hanawalt expressed her excitement for the show’s move, saying “I’ve been a fan of Adult Swim shows since my teens, so I’m thrilled to bring my beloved fowl to the party and be a new voice for a fresh decade of absurd, irreverent, yet heartwarming adult animation” (via The Wrap).
“Tuca & Bertie” Season 2 has already started airing on Adult Swim, and there’s no word yet about a third season. For now, you can also still enjoy “Tuca & Bertie” Season 1 on Netflix.
