Apollo Gauntlet - Release and reception - Netflix

Apollo Gauntlet began airing on Adult Swim in July 2017. The pilot episode aired in December 4, 2016, and was previously released on Adult Swim's official website in August 2016, along with the pilots for several prospective television series, including Hot Streets. Viewers could rate each pilot by clicking one of five buttons corresponding to their reactions. Daniel Kurland of the Den of Geek called the plainness of its animation style unique, identifying influences from the He-Man animated series and other animated fare from the 1960s and '70s. Kurland wrote that its setting would allow many stories to be told and that the “rogues' gallery of creatures” prevalent in the pilot were indicative of many more “exciting” creatures. The A.V. Club's William Hughes called both Apollo and Hot Streets “very Adult Swim–esque”, writing that they felt in tandem with Adult Swim's “core aesthetic of cheap-looking, surrealist animation mixed with self-aware dialogue, delivered with a distinctive slacker vibe”.
