This new season unpacks important topics in informative ways, like the use of tampons for the first time, an anthology installment based around “hand stuff,” and the loss of friends and social anxiety. However, certain episodes also take larger stylistic swings like one that jumps several decades into the future. Big Mouth is a balancing act that works because the show is simultaneously ridiculous as well as intensely realistic. The show is made for adults, but I’ve said in the past that children would actually benefit and learn from the stories being told in this show. That’s never been truer than now as these stories become more modern and universal with how they approach groups of people who haven’t previously been explored like this in animated series. It helps establish an important precedent that will hopefully be followed.
