Big Mouth

Big Mouth is an American adult animated coming-of-age sitcom created by Andrew Goldberg, Nick Kroll, Mark Levin, and Jennifer Flackett for Netflix. The series centers on students based on Kroll and Goldberg's upbringing in suburban New York, with Kroll voicing his fictionalized younger self. Big Mouth explores puberty while embracing an openness about the human body and sex.


The series follows a group of middle school teenagers, including best friends Nick Birch and Andrew Glouberman, as they navigate their way through puberty with struggles such as masturbation and sexual arousal all in the Westchester County suburbs of New York. Acting as over-sexualized shoulder angels are the hormone monsters: Maurice (who pesters Andrew and Matthew and occasionally Nick), Connie (who pesters Jessi and Nick and occasionally Missy) and Mona (who mainly pesters Missy). Throughout the series, the kids interact with people and objects who are often personified and offer helpful, yet confusing, advice in their puberty-filled lives including the ghost of Duke Ellington, a French-accented Statue of Liberty, a pillow capable of getting pregnant, a capsule of Adderall, and even Jessi's own vulva, alongside other supernatural creatures that represent a human emotion like The Shame Wizard, the Depression Kitty, Tito the Anxiety Mosquito, and the Lovebugs Walter, Sonya and Rochelle. They seek out their destiny as puberty challenges them mentally and physically.
