This episode shows that there is no such thing as socially unacceptable or inappropriate on TV, and that people shouldn’t be discriminated against on the basis of who they are – or who they think they are. This episode is proving to be a big hit with viewers all over the world, and being translated into new languages in the US (speaking Spanish here). This episode is relevant to some viewers, and is aimed at all young people who believe the rules should be made up on the spot, that their reaction is to be looked at, not judged, and that they’re entitled to their own opinions and ideas. This episode also highlights the violent messages of Popeye, and introduces him to people who have strong feelings against having a puppet on a stick.
Big Mouth, based on the book, was written by Nick Kroll and Andrew Goldberg and Nick Stoller. The first season is now available for streaming on Netflix.
