The series focuses on Cricket Green, a mischievous and optimistic country boy who moves to the big city (simply called Big City) with his family. Cricket’s curiosity and enthusiasm leads his wildly out of place family on epic journeys and into the hearts of his new neighbors. Emmy Award-winning director Rob Renzetti (creator of My Life as a Teenage Robot and supervising producer for Gravity Falls) serves as executive producer and the Houghton brothers serve as co-executive producers.
The intro was first shown at San Diego Comic Con on July 21, 2017.
Cricket and Tilly are the only characters who have appeared in every episode of the series.
The episode title cards appear on items seen throughout the show.
According to the creators, the series is mostly set on weekends, weeknights and vacations such as summer break, which explains why Cricket, Tilly and their friends their age have not been seen attending school yet.
