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

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

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

[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.

In the end, Tuca & Bertie is a charming reflection of two slices of millennial life, with lots of joy and hints of tragedy.
November 27, 2019
It's a fun show, but one that can sometimes feel a bit too derivative and desperate to harness the pop-feminist zeitgeist.

The visual gags and ribald humor of Tuca & Bertie are certainly fun and zany, but the show has a more tender side as well, tackling issues like mental and emotional health, the promise and pitfalls of "adulting."

Tuca & Bertie handled a wide range of emotion in just one short season with the utmost humor and heart - and seeing it canceled before it even had a chance to grow is a blow to fans.
