Netflix’s upcoming animated series The Cuphead Show! has a bit of an unusual background: its retro Max Fleischer-inspired style would have you thinking that it’s a modern remake of a 1930s classic, when in fact it’s an adaptation of a 2017 video game.
Developed by Canadian video game developer StudioMDHR, Cuphead is a run-and-gun video game that was inspired by the rubber hose style of animation used in cartoons of the 1930s, and built some of the surreal elements of the animation into its gameplay. The result was one of the unique video games in years, with Cuphead earning several awards and selling over 5 million copies within two years. It wasn’t much later that Netflix came knocking about turning Cuphead into an animated series. Now the streamer has released a sneak peek, giving a behind-the-scenes look at the nostalgic animation design of the upcoming series.
