Tuca and Bertie captures the humor and trauma of just living day to day, with a complexity and joy that few shows have managed.

In the end, Tuca & Bertie is bigger than the cartoon category it is forced to reside in. It's an exploration of complex emotions and the problems one faces if past issues are not resolved.

Tuca & Bertie's second season grows more confident and it's not afraid to tell bigger, fuller, and more responsible stories that are interested in challenging its characters and pushing them to make difficult decisions.

This funny show starring an oversexed toucan and her dear, insecure aviary friend doesn't provide all the answers or solutions. But in its idiosyncratic, sensitively rendered way, it makes you feel more okay about dealing with the doubts.

While the show doesn't shy away from serious topics, it's never so heavy that it takes away from the show's hilarity and cackle-worthy little details.

In a format the show has always excelled at, much like BoJack before it, Tuca and Bertie humanizes mental health while also pointing out the many funny things about the tedious chore of finding a therapist.

Tuca & Bertie season two is not so much challenging what animation can do, but it does prove how far an animated show can break boundaries and limitations while still rooting its stories in reality.

Based on the four episodes provided for review, Tuca & Bertie has changed nests with hardly a wingflap skipped; It's funny, probing, and delightfully absurd.
June 16, 2021
Tuca & Bertie artfully navigates the uncharted waters of securing the right therapist, and addressing just how isolating panic attacks can feel. It's a humorous and heartfelt approach to mental health.

If Rick and Morty lends a dark intellectual legitimacy to [Adult Swim's] stoner palace, Tuca & Bertie smartly perks up the lineup, reminding us of the many ways that animation tells multi-dimensional stories that speak to everybody, not just the guys.

The four episodes of season 2 provided for critics are just as funny as season 1, seamlessly transitioning Bird Town to a new network.
June 14, 2021
Few live-action TV comedies convey comparable levels of emotional intelligence and flat-out glee (the theme song, even in its new, shortened form, is an all-time banger), but "Tuca & Bertie" also isn't trying to imitate traditional sitcoms.

The show has become a savvy vehicle through which to explore repressed trauma, workplace sexism and what may be the most simultaneously nurturing and corrosive friendship on TV.
