Why Tiffany Haddish and Ali Wong never gave up on Tuca & Bertie

Many were devastated when news broke that Tuca & Bertie—one of the best new shows of 2019—had involuntarily flown the coop at Netflix. With its well-drawn characters (both literally and figuratively) and idiosyncratic style, Lisa Hanawalt’s animated comedy had quickly endeared itself to a loyal fanbase who, in the wake of cancellation, flocked to savetucaandbertie.com to sign a petition in support of its future. Its stars remained optimistic, too: During the 2019 Television Critic Association’s summer tour, Tiffany Haddish assured the press in attendance: “I talked to the creator [Hanawalt], and we definitely are going to make it go somewhere. It’s going to go. It’s going to end up somewhere.” Almost a year later, Haddish’s prophecy was fulfilled; Adult Swim had answered the call and announced it would be the new home to the vivacious Tuca (Haddish), the musing Bertie (Ali Wong), and the rest of the colorful denizens of Bird Town.

Ahead of Tuca & Bertie’s June 13 premiere on its new network home, The A.V. Club had the chance to chat with its stars/executive producers Haddish and Wong about the series’ second wind. When asked what kept them hopeful about the series’ future, the pair gave answers hilariously in line with the distinctive, yet complimentary personalities of their feathered alter egos.
