Who would have thought that a berry and twig would make some funny and endearing tv? The Mighty Ones is all about offbeat pals “Rocksy,” “Twig,” “Leaf,” and “Very Berry” who face adventures in the backyard together. The gang returns for 10 all-new episodes of The Mighty Ones, created and executive produced by Sunil Hall (“Gravity Falls”) and Lynne Naylor (“Samurai Jack”), and featuring the creative team behind some of the most influential animated series of the last two decades (”The Ren & Stimpy Show,” “SpongeBob SquarePants,”“The Powerpuff Girls”). Season two debuts July 1st on Peacock and Hulu. I got to interview two of the main characters from the show.
In every backyard exists a secret world filled with tiny creatures, and The Mighty Ones follows the hilarious misadventures of the smallest of them: a twig, a pebble, a leaf and a strawberry. Living in the unkempt backyard belonging to a trio of equally unkempt humans – who they mistake for gods – these self-proclaimed Mighty Ones are determined to live large and have fun in their wild wonderland, despite their diminutive stature.
In season 2, the misadventures of The Mighty Ones continue as they explore their backyard wonderland and learn more about the strange creatures they share it with. A flood forces the group to live as pirates searching for dry land, Rocksy dabbles in a home makeover, and Very Berry makes a new feathery “friend” who may or may not see her as food. These mighty little beings are relatively fearless, a little misguided and always have each others’ backs come snow, wind or any atmospheric phenomenon that threatens the yard they call home.
I got to chat with these two…. Twig and Very Berry themselves!
Very Berry is voiced by the hilarious Alex Cazares. Berry is a wild strawberry who left the berry patch to see the world. Wanting more out of life than sunshine and dew like the rest of her clan, she is fearless and ready for any and all adventures.
Twig is voiced by the wonderful Josh Brenner. Twig is the sensitive, cautious and wisest member of the group. He has high aspirations of becoming a Mighty Oak someday, though his always-on-the-go lifestyle with his friends makes it impossible for him to put down roots. Suffering from residual abandonment issues stemming from the fact that his brother Leaf was once attached to him, Twig reluctantly accompanies his friends on their adventures partly because he’s afraid of being alone, but mostly because he’s dependable.
The Mighty Season 2 Trailer:
This show is really funny and one that even parents can enjoy. I love the silliness of it all and both Josh and Alex bring so much depth to these offbeat characters. This show is both kid and parent approved!
