Critic Reviews for Tuca & Bertie Season 1

All Critics (43) | Top Critics (15)

It's a consistent joy to watch the series bring that same richness to its characters' internal realities. Tuca and Bertie are still trying to figure things out, but the series handles their growing pains with tenderness and understanding.

In Hanawalt's hands, you'll feel wonderfully unbalanced, then tenderly comforted.

Bright, encouraging, and outrageous, watching "Tuca & Bertie" can feel like watching a particularly excellent Saturday morning cartoon.

Top Critic

Hanawalt's joyful, messy world is grounded by weird but unmistakably human performances from Haddish and Wong. This is a bright, squawking delight.

May 2, 2019 | Full Review…

It's a bit like "Broad City" turned into a cartoon, with the same giddy undercurrent of female empowerment.

Nov 27, 2019 | Full Review…

Colorful and crude, the premise is as nondescript as the animation.

Top Critic

It's brilliantly scripted and amazingly animated.

Jan 28, 2020 | Full Review…

Tuca & Bertie is clever enough to use its medium to make a great point, and an even greater show.

Nov 27, 2019 | Full Review…

But as far as launching first seasons go, Netflix pushed the series out of the nest, and boy does it fly.

Nov 27, 2019 | Full Review…

[Lisa] Hanawalt has created a warming show that possesses all the essential elements of a joyful female camaraderie comedy, exploring insecurity and existential angst with an absurd sense of humour while also succeeding in sensitive and poignant delivery.

Nov 27, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Tuca & Bertie provides an imaginative and hilarious exploration of growing up and flawed female friendship.

Nov 27, 2019 | Full Review…

If you enjoy BoJack Horseman's nihilism and dark humor, you will definitely enjoy Tuca & Bertie's surreal take on sisterhood and how women navigate society professionally and personally.

Audience Reviews for Tuca & Bertie: Season 1

  • Jun 25, 2020
    Tuca & Bertie is fantastic. I think it's important for those who come to T&B via Bojack to be wary in comparing the two. The animation is almost the same, and although it tackles adult themes with comedy, the tone is different. It's a great representation of women today, and tackles the complex issues faced by many. Who would've thought that one could so easily identify with a Toucan and a Song Thrush?

    This show really portrays womanhood and friendship in a very realistic and fun way! It handles sensitive topics such as anxiety, alcoholism and sexual assault very well, unlike some of its counterparts on Netflix. It also means a lot to me as a woman of color, as we are rarely the center of adult animation! Thank you to adult swim for picking this show up for a 2nd season💜

    Brilliant show that has to be judged on its own weird strengths. Great to see it getting a second season.
  • May 25, 2020
    This show is proof that nepotism is alive and well. Nauseating.

    The BEST EVER & I HATE Netfix for cancelling. They are insane!!! How do you shut down Tiffany Haddish, Ali Wong & Lisa Hanawalt? Support your women creators and artists Netflix!! Women Watch TV & Women Pay the Bills!!

    Not worth watching, it is bad animated aswell.
  • Feb 25, 2020
    Y'all remember how McDonald's happy meals have toys specialized for each gender? It feels like they did this but with Bojack Horseman. The season is a little wierd (like a little cringy wierd, not outlandish wierd) at the beginning but gets better at end. Honestly tho they could better character development.

    While no where near as good as Bojack horseman, The animators and writers once again succeed in creating another show exemplifying life in a fantastically humorous sense, which is unfortunate due to the cancellation.

    Needs more Bertie, less Tuca
  • Dec 06, 2019
    I only knew Tuca & Bertie existed because it was trending on Twitter one day due to its cancellation, I didn't get what people were raving about so I sat down to watch it myself. You have to give the show a chance, I didn't like it at all in my first viewing, but it does get better. The characters growth, and resolutions are what kept me interested. Toward the end the pacing breaks, and some character's are a bit one dimensional, but overall I say its a good watch. I don't know if it needs a second season, but I can think of a lot of scenarios Tuca & Bertie could tackle.
