5 Reasons Why You Should Be Watching 'Tuca & Bertie'


Need to watch something on Netflix?

Then check out the most appealing new show of 2019, an adult animated comedy about female birds struggling to make it as adults, "Tuca & Bertie."

Laugh and cry at the wacky but relatable adventures in a story of friendship, determination, and overcoming your past!

Need any more convincing? Look at these five reasons why you should watch this brand new gem.

1. From the mind of Lisa Hanawalt


For those who don't know who Lisa Hanawalt is, she's the production designer and producer of what I think is one of the greatest TV series of all-time, "BoJack Horseman."

My love for BoJack can be further explored in one of my old articles.

Hanawalt's longtime friendship with "BoJack" creator Raphael Bob-Waksberg helped get the show off the ground and onto Netflix. With Hanawalt's colorful and unique art and Bob-Waksberg incredible, remarkable, generational display of character development and dialogue, "BoJack Horseman" will go down as one for the ages.

And now, it's Hanawalt's turn to create her own show with "Tuca & Bertie."

While it obviously has a similar visual style to "BoJack", "Tuca & Bertie" easily stands as it's own thing, but also is a perfect companion piece to Bob-Waksberg's masterpiece.

Hanawalt also has a great graphic novel called "Coyote Doggirl" and incredible artwork on her Instagram @LisaDraws.

And she actually rides her horses and lives with a guy named Adam who like has a show or something.

2. A cartoon by women, for women!


As you might have just read, "Tuca & Bertie" was created by a woman, and therefore made for women!

Despite being a world where most of the characters are birds this show explores the daily highs and lows of being a female millennial.

But don't worry guys, you can always relate to Bertie's architect boyfriend Speckle!

3. A great voice cast


Tiffany Haddish is one of the hottest rising stars in Hollywood today, so you know it's a big deal when she's taking her time to voice an animated character for a Netflix show. After watching the full season, it's clear that Haddish was born to voice the vibrant free spirit that is Tuca.

Voicing the lead bird in Bertie is underrated comedian Ali Wong who has two Netflix specials of her own! Wong splendidly holds her own as the more down-to-earth girl in contrast to the wild Tuca. And voicing Bertie's boyfriend and architect Speckles is "Walking Dead" legend Steven Yeun!

4. Hidden jokes!


Like "BoJack," one of the great things about "Tuca & Bertie" are the gems hidden in the background you'll have to pause or rewind to see.

5. Puns! Puns! Puns!


Don't like animated comedies disguised as a complex dive into millennial gender roles? Not to worry because, like "BoJack," "Tuca & Bertie" have puns!

Lots and lots of bird puns!

Reclaim Your Weekends From The 'Sunday Scaries' With 'Self-Love Sundays' Instead
Olivia DeLucia

Laid back and taking it easy — sometimes that is the motto we all need after a busy week. Sunday scaries? Yes, they are valid – but you know what else is? A Sunday full of self-love. A lazy Sunday spent doing what you feel needs to be done to ease into the next week. Self-Love Sundays are a guilty pleasure that isn't only essential for our mind, and body, but are also a surprisingly proactive way to devote the upcoming week with a clear mindset.

So, what is a more suitable way to dedicate your week's end than a beautifully, connected playlist to accompany your face masks and journaling? Cheers, to a Self-Love Sunday (and a playlist intertwined with it to match). (Please note: "Sunday Morning" isn't included in this list, due to the obvious, but feel free to blast it anyway, we know you want to).

Sunset Girl

The sun rose and peeked through the sheer curtains. Rose’s alarm shrieked. The loud bells caused her phone to jump on the side table. It was time for her to get ready for church. Blindly reaching for her phone, she shut the alarm off and pulled at the covers providing her a cocoon of warmth and tossed them to the side. She swept her bare feet across the bed to touch the cool wooden floor.

Rose softly tiptoed to the corner of the bedroom to grab her clothes dangling on the arm of the bedroom chair. Scooping all of the items of her chosen outfit, she headed to the bathroom hoping that she wouldn’t drop anything.

Round, piercing blue eyes stared back at her in the bathroom mirror. Rose fingered the wrinkles forming around her eyes. So many of them bore signs of laughter and smiling. Slowly dropping her hands, she couldn’t remember the last time she laughed in her home with Tom. Shaking her head as if to erase the negative thoughts, she reached for her makeup bag and went through her regular routine.

Applying her favorite deep rose lipstick, Rose headed downstairs to make her coffee and bagel to take with her to church. The smell of dark-roast coffee swirled in the air as Rose sliced her cinnamon raisin bagel. Hearing the Keurig sputter with the fresh brew, Rose found the interruption of the stillness comforting. The toaster signaled that her bagel was done with a soft pop. It had a delicious golden brown color. Placing the bagel on the counter, she generously spread honey nut flavored cream cheese across both halves. Gathering her bible, notebook, and pens from the side table on the porch she stuffed them into her purse. Purse hanging on her right shoulder she juggled her coffee and bagel in both of her hands as she headed to the garage.

This Holiday Season, Choose To Be Eco-friendly And Reduce Pollution

Many of us have old magazines lying around, fully read and not of much use anymore. However, we can use their bright colors and prints as a stylish and trendy wrapping paper!


It can be overwhelming to see the detrimental effects of climate change and pollution on the news, from animals dying and forest fires spreading, but there are smaller changes that we can all make to reduce our carbon footprint, and it begins with our gifting season.

On average, Americans throw 25% more trash between Thanksgiving and New Years, which translates to 25 million tons of garbage. That's 1 million extra tons per week.
