Big Mouth Season 6

Now that Big Mouth 6 has been out for a few weeks, I wanted to post and send out some thank you’s to the fantastic crew that built yet another amazing season.

This is actually the first Big Mouth season that we made 100% remotely (not in person / in the studio at all). Hard to believe you can make an animated series fully remote with everyone in different places. It’s a weird thing to hire people and work with them for a year and never even meet in person! We started this one back in January 2021, everyone still in their homes…

I remember Big Mouth 6 was a nice “break” for the crew. After us figuring out and producing the Human Resources season 1 episodes (which tended to be all big, filled with lots of new characters and locations) the crew was beatup and tired! Not only was it the work of figuring out a new show but it was also a much more complex series. When they came back to Big Mouth S6 – they already knew all these characters and what to do with them. It was returning to an old friend. No one ever thought Big Mouth was easy but it definitely felt a little easier compared to Human Resources when we got back into it.

Ok on to some appreciation for the many people who make this …

Big Gratitoad to all of the EPs – Mark, Jen, Andrew & Nick, writers team and Titmouse crew who put this together. Thank you Lioi, Rico & Andy, Henri, Bryan, Alex, Ross, Ybarra, Kelly, Pablo, Glenn (and stacks of other people who I won’t drag out a list a names here with). Shout out to our incredible design teams, board teams, dial editing, compositing, animatics, editorial, checking, timing, and production teams. These people make this show look good!

Thank you to all our partners at the studios in Korea, Konrad and the whole sound team at Margarita, our friends at Light Iron, our track team at Syncmagic, and all our record studios.

Appreciation for Chris, Shannon, Antonio and Ben for creating and running one of the best studios in the business where we can make this wild show. Lastly, thank you to all our partners and friends at Netflix – Moon, Porter, and the entire creative team, Mike K, Talar, Amy and the production team, David, Lauren and the post team, localization / globalization, marketing, and the army of everyone else at Netflix who helps put this thing out in the universe!

Thank you, thank you, thank you – everyone who works on this show – you make one of the best shows out there and we appreciate you all and the work you do to bring this thing to the fans year after year.
