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 is the only character who has appeared in every episode of the series.
Cricket and Tilly, however, do not appear in all the shorts.
Tilly was completely absent from "Date Night", whereas she technically does not appear in "Time Crisis" as her imaginary future counterpart appears instead.
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. 
The show is animated traditionally through pencil, ink and paper, as opposed to other contemporary shows that animate via digital ink.
