Critic Reviews for Mission Hill Season 1

All Critics (9) | Top Critics (3)

Although "Mission Hill" is billed as a series that will both "embrace and satirize youth culture," its value and benefits from animation are not immediately apparent. Nor is there much distinctive about the voices.

Jun 26, 2019 | Full Review…

Not as pretty as "SpongeBob SquarePants" or as ugly as "South Park," "Mission Hill" resides in its own aesthetic neighborhood where the animation is just a vehicle for clever writing.

Top Critic

The animation style seems a throwback to the late '50s and early '60s... But the animation is rarely used to advantage, to take stories to the realm of the outlandish and even impossible, where live action can't go. And the writing fizzles.

Jun 26, 2019 | Full Review…

The series' humor was delivered in a dry, subtle manner unmatched by most cartoons at the time, essentially standing as a smart man's animated sitcom for a generation not yet ready to appreciate it.

Jun 26, 2019 | Full Review…

Mission Hill fails to take advantage of any of the edges animation offers. The characters are dullards and the premise desultory. If it's not an oxymoron, this cartoon is lifeless.

Jun 26, 2019 | Full Review…

This animated half-hour is ugly to look at, stupid and offensive. Oh, and while it's supposed to be funny -- it's not even close.

Jun 26, 2019 | Full Review…

[Bill] Oakley and [Jack] Weinstein's mission should be to rely less on bad words for humor and supply some legitimate laughs.

Jun 26, 2019 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

In its own way, Mission Hill remains fresh, perhaps even groundbreaking.

Jun 26, 2019 | Rating: 8/10 | Full Review…

While it probably won't keep you in stitches, the show will strike a chord with young adults who can relate to the characters and their woes. For them, it's a decent way to spend 30 minutes.

Audience Reviews for Mission Hill: Season 1

  • Jul 31, 2020
    This is one of my favorite shows of all time. The animation is vibrant, beautiful, and uniquely drawn. Every character in the show is enjoyable and relatable in some way. The humor is well-balanced in that it's certainly an entertaining and funny show, but it's grounded in reality enough to give some depth to the series. Overall, an amazing show. I think it was ahead of its time and wasn't marketed properly at the time of its release, but I would love to see another season.
