Relive the most cherished and challenging moments of Cuphead and Mugman's adventure to reclaim their souls from the Devil!

Cuphead is a 2017 video game developed by Chad and Jared Moldenhauer and StudioMDHR. The game was inspired by the rubber hose style of animation used in cartoons of the 1930s, as in the work of Fleischer and Walt Disney, and sought to emulate their subversive and surrealist qualities.

Cuphead was both a critical and commercial success, winning several awards and selling over five million copies within two years. An animated series is in production by Netflix.
