If you haven’t seen Netflix’s Kid Cosmic yet, let me ask you this: do you like the cartoons of Craig McCracken (Powerpuff Girls, Foster’s Home, Wander Over Yonder)? Of course you do, who doesn’t? Have you ever wondered what a McCracken cartoon could be like if it had no executive interference or network demands? It exists now and in two words, it’s glorious.

Kid Cosmic is McCracken’s love letter to pulpy old comic books and the irresponsibility of youth. The first season revolved around Kid, a young boy living with his grandpa in a remote desert town. He loves comic books and the pseudoscience within, so when some misshapen rocks from space land in his backyard, he takes some lugnuts and some glue, fashions them into crude rings and runs off to a safe distance to see if they give him superpowers. The twist is…they do.

Each of the rocks bestow a different power, but Kid knows he can’t just hog them all, so he gifts them to his friends with the intent of building a super-team of heroes. Now Kid can fly, the teenager working at the diner can portal herself anywhere, four-year-old Rosa can grow super-big, and the local cat can see into the future. But Kid quickly learns reality (well, his reality) isn’t as simple as his comics suggest. When it comes down to it, does Kid really have what it takes to be a superhero?

Unlike McCracken’s other projects, Kid Cosmic will tell the kind of serialized, ever-shifting story that’s only possible in the streaming format. Kid won’t even be the main character in Season 2 — it’s Jo’s turn in the spotlight this time. “Working in cartoons, it’s easy to get stuck making the same kind of episodes over and over again,” McCracken says. “But with Kid Cosmic, we loved the freedom to not only make each season different, but to allow the characters to grow, to change, and to learn from their experiences.”

A third season has already been granted to Kid Cosmic, and Craig is working on it now…he says Papa G will be the focus of that one. If you still haven’t seen Season One, rectify that immediately. You have until September 7 to catch up; that’s when Season Two drops on Netflix.
