The Powerpuff Girls have always saved the world before bedtime, but Mojo Jojo is back with his most diabolical scheme yet. As Blossom, Bubbles and Buttercup face off with their enemy, the girls may have found the one challenge that has them staying up past bedtime. Written by
Boy it has been half a decade, since we saw POWERPUFF GIRLS RULE in
2008. I saw some teaser art for this special. I worried about that it
will be stereotypically girly like JEM, STRAWBERRY SHORTCAKE,
RAINBOW-BRITE, and the first three generations of MY LITTLE PONY, but I
was wrong. Before I talk about my thoughts about it, let me supply you
with a little history lesson.
From 1929 to 1934, America was suffering through The Great Depression.
There were superheroes like Superman, Flash Gordon, Shazam, Captain
Marvel and Buck Rogers who were used to boost morale and raise spirits.
Then America was struck by terrorism on September 11th, 2001. With that
there were shows like POWERPUFF GIRLS, DEXTER'S LABORATORY, JOHNNY
BRAVO, COURAGE THE COWARDLY DOG, and FAIRLY ODDPARENTS. They were used
to continue the tradition on boosting morale and raising spirits
through the power of laughter and pop-culture references. Over the next
ten years, political correctness had affected the government, and then
the media and technology. Negativity had infected society and they were
statement films and shows like IDIOCRACY, THE JERSEY SHORE, DAN VS. and
GOD BLESS America. These had negative role-models carried bad messages
to prove that life stinks! This drove the world mad. Now with a
troubled times, there were a few shows that are struggling to keep the
tradition like T.U.F.F. PUPPY and WANDER OVER YONDER. With love and
respect for the past and pop-culture references, it is time for the
girls to make a comeback.
With that history lesson aside, what I wrote was true. I did watch this
show yesterday and I had a laugh out of it. It is good to hear the old
voices and familiar music, but the design looked different. It doesn't
look like an episode of the show, but it feels like an episode from the
show. I heard that Butch Hartman was involved, but he wasn't. When I
read that Craig McCracken, the show's original creator, was not
involved, then how come I read the text "created by Craig McCracken"
under the show's title? It's a mystery. In a world dominated by
cartoons that are negative, contain character designs, that are
complete eyesore, irritating voices that makes you want to press the
mute button and messed up story-lines. Then this special is a breath of
fresh air. I highly recommend it. If you enjoy this special and the
original series, then you will enjoy IDW's comic book re-boot. It is
faithful to the campy cartoon series. Rated TV-Y7 for comedic and
fantasy violence and peril. This has been another "Mathew Praises".
