Many adults remember their youths fondly, as carefree times of silly sleepovers and innocent crushes.

“Big Mouth,” Nick Kroll’s new Netflix comedy, aims to remind grown-ups of what really ruled their childhood: fear. The animated series follows a group of middle-school adolescents who are constantly learning about their developing bodies — and trying to impress the opposite sex all the while.
Sure, it’s funny to reflect on puberty’s many embarrassing moments, but at the time, it was terrifying, and the half-hour comedy revels in the dark and light sides of nostalgia.
