Big Mouth Cast
Andrew Glouberman, a young boy and Nick’s best buddy who frequently engages in covert masturbation, is portrayed by John Mulaney. He is Jewish and irritated by his dysfunctional family. But with the assistance of Maury, he had a secret collection of Puberty stories.
In season four, he tormented Nick at summer camp, giving him the nickname “soup.” He may or may not be bisexual. Despite decisively determining in season 1 that he is not homosexual, he looks to be strongly attracted to male figures such as Michael Angelo and Mr Keating in the following seasons.
Greg, her father, is an unemployed stoner, and Shannon, her mother, is secretly dating another woman. She experiences her first period during a school trip to the Statue of Liberty.
Although Jessi has previously kissed Nick, notably in the pilot episode “Ejaculation,” she engages in numerous French kissing make-out sessions with Jay. As evidenced by her Bat Mitzvah in “I Survived Jessi’s Bat Mitzvah,” she is Jewish, like Andrew.
Jason Mantzoukas as Jayzerian Ricflairian “Jay” Bilzerian,
A rebellious adolescent who is infatuated with magic and sex. He engages in sexual activity with a pillow that he converted into a sex toy. In Season 2, his mother permits Coach Steve to have a one-night stand with her. He has two elder brothers, Kurt and Val, who bully him constantly.
His dad is a divorce lawyer, and Jay has a habit of mimicking his father’s law ads, often being scolded by his buddies to stop. Jay is enamoured with Nick’s parents and desires to have a loving family. Jay kisses Matthew, an openly gay student, during a game of “Smooch or Share” in the second season.
Jenny Slate and Ayo Edebiri portray Melissa “Missy” Foreman-Greenwald, respectively
Due to her sheltered upbringing and general naiveté, Missy has difficulty interacting to her peers. However, during Season 3, she begins to develop (both physically and mentally) and acquires her own hormone monster, Mona. Missy begins investigating and embracing her African-American background more extensively in Season 4.
Nick’s doctor father Elliot Birch, portrayed by Fred Armisen, frequently tells improper anecdotes. Since Season 6, he goes by the name William McGregor.
Maya Rudolph as: Connie the Hormone Monstress,
whose full name is Constance LaCienega, urges Jessi (and sometimes Missy) to pursue their greatest desires. Duke Ellington (1899–1977), the jazz musician whose ghost now resides in Nick’s attic and occasionally gives him guidance, is portrayed by Jordan Peele.
The Plot of Big Mouth
The series follows a group of 7th graders, including best friends Nick Birch and Andrew Glouberman, as they navigate puberty in the Westchester County suburbs of New York, facing challenges such as masturbation and s*xual arousal.
As over-sexualized shoulder angels, the hormone monsters are Maurice (who annoys Andrew and Matthew and occasionally Nick), Connie, the hormone monstrosity (who annoys Jessi and Nick and occasionally Missy), and Mona (who mainly pesters Missy).
Throughout the series, the kids interact with often-personified people and objects who offer helpful, yet confusing advice in their puberty-filled lives, such as the ghost of Duke Ellington, a French-accented Statue of Liberty, a pillow capable of getting pregnant, an Adderall capsule, and even Jessi’s vulva. As adolescence presents them with mental and physical hurdles, they search for their destinies.
Development of Big Mouth
TV writer Andrew Goldberg, together with screenwriter-directors Jennifer Flackett and Mark Levin, approached Goldberg’s childhood best friend Nick Kroll with the idea of creating a sitcom about puberty.
Due to the fact that Kroll was a late bloomer and Goldberg went through the physical changes of puberty extremely early, their differing pubertal experiences were a central theme of the show. Many of their life experiences, such as Kroll’s first kiss and Goldberg’s parents waxing his moustache, are highlighted in the show.
On a school trip to the Statue of Liberty, their childhood friend Lizzie, whose character Jessi is based on, gets her first period. In an interview with NPR, Kroll stated that Big Mouth “takes an equal look at what it’s like for girls and women, the process of growing through puberty, which I believe is not as well examined in most popular media.” Netflix announced in June 2016 that it has acquired Big Mouth.
Jenny Slate agreed to stand down from voicing Missy Foreman-Greenwald on June 24, 2020, so that a Black actor might assume the role in response to the George Floyd protests.
As she recorded her lines in advance, Slate’s final appearance as Missy occurs in the fourth season. On August 28, 2020, it was announced that Ayo Edebiri would replace Slate in the role of Missy. Her debut appearance as Missy occurs in “Horrority House,” the fourth season’s penultimate episode.
