Powerpuff Girls Remake

For those who don't know, Cartoon Network brang back the Powerpuff Girls yesterday. I haven't seen any of the new episodes, but since the Powerpuff Girls was a show that I absolutely loved as a kid, I'd like to see what CN does with this remake. From what I understand, none of the original voice actors are coming back to do this show, which should be interesting.

What do you guys think about this?
I used to watch this show as a kid. Personally, I think it's something that should be left as it is, given that the show started to decline during its last season. But, who knows, this might be good.

--------------------


I took a look at a couple episodes...

It's actually not that bad. There's changes though.
Expect new and familiar voice actors. They want something different. But it sounds ok (i guess?) once you get used to it.

I also hear the same person who made Clarence and Wow Wow Wubbzy made this.
The style of it is pretty cool i suppose.

That's all I can say so far.

I watched the first few episodes today. I don't really hate the stories or the voice acting, and I like seeing a new villain for once.

Personally, I'm sad that they ditched the whole intro where it shows the origin story for the Powderpuff Girls and replaced it with an okay theme song, but that may be just me.

Also, Buttercup is just as awesome as always.

7.5/10 for me, I could see myself watching more of it #smw{:TUP:}

Major thanks to Giga and Erik557 for the layout.
Actually I like this intro just as I do the original one.

A review of the unicorn episode. This isn't just Tumblr over-analyzing, it actually is confirmed to be a trans-gender metaphor.

More than the (rightful) complaining about representing trans issues, I think the most tumblr thing about the post is having to scroll through about 20 forwards to get to the actual post, then have it be horribly squished and formatted.

It's a crying shame, though. I remember watching Powerpuff Girls back in the day, and it was an awesome show. Shame the reboot is transphobic garbage. (This isn't the only example of it in the show either, to my knowledge.)
I don't know if I'd call it transphobic; it's more just poorly handling a very heated and difficult issue. I'm sure the writers were well-intentioned but based on that post it sounds like they botched it up pretty bad.

Again haven't seen anything but based on that and various stills from the show it seems like a pretty sloppy effort to cashgrab on nostalgia.
New voice acting? Awful
New intro? Not a fan

The only episode I've seen in its entirety just so happened to be the unicorn one. I already wasn't a huge fan of it, and after reading that tumblr post...yeah...

Why can't we create new things instead of ruining old things?
this is exactly why i've never been interested in reboots

also i thought it was going to be a CG cartoon? maybe i'm just remembering wrong
I read there was twerking in one episode, but is there also one where they do the whip/nae nae?

I'll just put my two cents in. Overall, it looks decent and the animation looks good, but it's not great. The voice acting is pretty off and I'm not a huge fan of the intro either. But I still think this might have potential.

Well there was a CGI reboot that came out about 2 years ago and it was complete garbage. Also, just about everything is CGI nowadays.

This is pretty much why every reboot is bad nowadays.

yes this is why every reboot is bad

not for being bad
but for having twerking

It's not hard to do a trans issue episode, as it's a very cut and dry issue. People are the gender who they identify with; period. There's no ambiguity here.

The only way to botch a trans issues episode is in fact to be transphobic and/or incredibly ignorant.
Yeah, and considering the show has been trying to advertise the way it has, that's a pretty big fuckup.

Your layout has been removed.
Well I guess its a good thing I haven't actually seen any of the show yet, I have no tolerance for transphobia.

Yeah, it's not happening. This show will be cancelled in no time.
