Here's the synopsis for The Cuphead Show!, straight from Netflix:
"Based on the award-winning video game that smashed onto the scene with a gorgeous retro animation style, THE CUPHEAD SHOW! is a character-driven comedy series following the unique misadventures of loveable, impulsive scamp Cuphead and his cautious but easily swayed brother Mugman. As the two scour their surreal homeworld of the Inkwell Isles in search of fun and adventure, they always have each other's back. Unless there's only one cookie left, in which case it's every cup for himself. THE CUPHEAD SHOW! combines nostalgic delights, side-splitting gags, and a healthy dose of the heebie jeebies-especially when a ridiculously weird nemesis, The Devil himself, arrives on the scene to toy with our heroes."
As noted above, The Cuphead Show! will premiere on Netflix on February 18th. It consists of 12 episodes total, each of which are 12 minutes in length. It's based on the video game by Studio MDHR, and produced by Netflix Animation. Executive producers for the show include Dave Wasson, CJ Kettler, Chad Moldenhauer, and Jared Moldenhauer. Cosmo Segurson serves as co-executive producer. The show includes the voices of Tru Valentino as Cuphead, Frank Todaro as Mugman, Joe Hanna as Elder Kettle, Luke Millington-Drake as Devil, Greg Griffin as Ms. Chalice, and Wayne Brady as King Dice.
