Cuphead originally launched in 2017 as an Xbox One-exclusive title and was later brought to Nintendo Switch earlier this year.

The Cuphead video game stole the hearts of millions worldwide with its 1930s-style rubber hose animation and raked in awards after its 2017 debut.

Die-hard gamers likely know the struggle of Studio MDHR's Cuphead, either first-hand or through vicarious experience. Cosmo Segurson will serve as co-executive producer.

The animated comedy will expand upon the characters and world of the Cuphead video game, which stars Cuphead and his brother Mugman who make a deal with the devil in a gambling match.

Hollywood Reporter notes that the show will be produced by Netflix and King Features Syndicate. Emmy and Annie award victor Dave Wasson (Mickey Mouse Shorts) will also executive produce.

Cuphead creators Chad and Jared Moldenhauer will serve as executive producers on the Netflix series, with Carmen Sandiego acting as executive producer for King Features - the company that also owns the rights to Popeye, Garfield and Archie.

The tremendously popular indie game Cuphead is getting turned into an animated series. The world presented in the game is positively twisted and the hand-drawn aesthetic is something that's been missing from the realm of animation for far too long.
