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".
