Storyline

The straight-laced Prof. Utonium's attempt to create perfect little girls accidentally includes "Chemical X", resulting in take-charge red-head Blossom, blonde sweety-pie Bubbles and ready-to-fight brunette Buttercup. These flying, super-strong, karate-chopping girls with the occasional heat vision race into action to save the city of Townsville (and, we're told, the world) from all sorts of crimes and creatures.

How can you go wrong?
18 August 2012 | by (Dongshih, Taiwan) – See all my reviews

Well, I guess you *could* go wrong: What do you think of 3 superpowered little scamps? The key here is that the writing is fine. In fact, this might be one of the true saving graces of the Powerpuff Girls: It's written well enough that it might be a perfect bridge; cajoling the target audience (kids) to appreciate a higher level of writing. Kids come for the concept, stay for the clever narrative, wind up experiencing some nicely toned prose, and probably internalizing these fine turns of clever communication.

Love the comic timing. Usually frenetic, but also capable of stretching things out a bit, if that'll work. Note: I am talking about the TV bits, here; not the movies. I saw one of the full-length features, and didn't particularly care for it: It felt driven by the producers, like they didn't let the creative team breathe. The TV shows feel more artful.

The voice work is great. A personal fave feature: I dig hearing Tom Kenny (the Narrator); loved his work on Mr. Show, love his voice anytime I hear it. He's a great talent. But everyone does a fine job.

Anyway, check it out. At worst, it's cute; at best you'll get more than a few hearty belly laughs!
