Top 10 Reasons Why the Powerpuff Girls Reboot is Bad

Cartoon Network has made another terrible remake of a classic, iconic, and good show. Watch the original, not this trash.
The Top Ten
1 They animated little girls twerking

Cartoon Network: Little girls twerking is good, but HEAVEN FORBID a woman with breasts to be on this show!
They also did this with Miss Keane too. In the original she had tiny breasts, but now she has like no breasts at all! Can't they just deal with the fact that some women have breasts and that some have flat ones? Ugh!

Yeah, it is okay for women to be removed from the show due to their natural body, yet it is okay to sexualize little girls?

Well there goes humor right there I agree it's messed up but I'm sure you laughed at it with your kids if any of you have any. But the reboot is a coming of age series. Just be glad that none of them are pregnant or getting those high D's.

Because that's what the original show was missing! Who needs charm, good cartoons, when you can have bottom homour. Which is not overused, or anything at all obviously! Ah yes, I give this show a rating worst than Teen. Titans. Go.

Kindergartens twerking, wow congratulations Cartoon Network. Making innocent little girls doing an inappropriate dance, ugh. The original PPG was wonderful but this so called reboot is horrendous. - BlazingParasol

2 The animation is poorly done

Look, I personally don't have a problem with the art style. It doesn't butcher the predecessor like Teen Titans Go did. BUT the animation errors...when I first watched this show I didn't notice them but now that I want to be an animator when I grow up, I look at cartoons critically now. And looking at this reboot... UGH!

Not all animation is bad it just trying to look modern I don't mind the thin lines because they are the only cartoon to never have any until now and the original had to much a saturated vintage color. And for every comment I left for ppg reboots please stop complaining before there is World War 3 over cartoons

Thank you for making this list, I agree. I see many animation errors in this show, which just makes it uncomfortable to watch this. It is like the animators just want to make money and not put actual quality into the show- AnimeDrawer85

You would expect since it's newer it would have better animation. WRONG! Same thing happened with Teen Titans Go!

3 They removed Miss Sara Bellum for a very illogical reason

She was meant to be a female character that was to be represented by her intelligence, not her body. Her name, Sara Bellum, is literally a pun based off of a part of the brain. The show just seemingly removed her out of fear that some parent would, at first glance, say that she looked too 'revealing' or that she was just a female stereotype/the show was being sexist. Ms. Bellum, though having her figure, was meant to be seen as smart at well, but for some, they can only see her body...

Well, EXCUUUSE us women for having breasts and hips that stick out! Ms. Bellum was not just a body, she was a role-model. She was intelligent, independent, and the girl's female role-model. Seriously, she's more fit to be mayor than the Mayor. Miss Sara Bellum for president!
But they allow little 5-year-old girls to twerk? Who the hell is writing this show!?

They removed her for "being too inappropriate" but yet enough, they do something worse by having Blossom, Buttercup, and Bubbles twerk their assess off like mini Miley Cyrus rip offs...What The HELL Cartoon Network! Why Would Do This To The Powerpuff Girls?! - Gehenna

They removed Miss Bellum because she was "innapropriate" and a "bad example to viewers". How? Miss Bellum was more than just a look, she was smart and gave good advice to the girls, she even does all of the Mayor's work, how is she a bad example and innapropriate? AnimeDrawer85

4 They removed the original voice actors of The Powerpuff Girls

Amanda Leighton, Natalie Palamides & Kristen Li are actually pretty nice people, replacing Cathy, EG Daily & Tara Strong isn't a very valid reason to hate those girls! It was Nick Jennings who gave those jobs to Kristen, Amanda & Natalie! So stop going so harsh on those 3 new voice actresses just because they took the place of your childhood adults! -_-

Besides, Tara Strong wasn't Bubble's first voice actor, Kath Soucie was! But do PPG fans lack respect for Tara becoming voice of Bubbles from the core-series? Yas, I mean, NO!

When I saw the trailer, Buttercup sounded just like Blossom! I'm a huge fan of the original series. But, judging by the outrage of the people who saw the reboot, I'm glad I've never seen it

Bubbles is by far the worst. I miss her cute little squeaky voice, her new voice sounds like a teenager falling asleep

In my opinion, Buttercup's VA is the worst. She sounds like she's trying to hard to sound boyish and "hip" but it comes off as irritating.

5 The girls are weak compared to the original

Exactly, explains the new generation. In the past, children used to go outside, play sports, and they were actually mature. They would also go on T.V. and watch the ORIGINAL PPG and other 90's shows, which actually taught something and had a good sense of humor, everyone would enjoy them, from kids to seniors. Now it's just 3rd grader boys who think cursing, "roasting" people (roasting is kind of funny, but I mean when they take it from the internet and make the witnesses think it's originally from them) and liking Jake/Logan Paul makes them "cool". 10-12 year old girls who can't keep their eyes out of their phone because of the damn annoying dog filter and musical.ly, and they think if their phone's battery is dead is worse than being buried alive.

I understand the reboot is bad, but you just sound like a boomer. Kids aren't like that. They have new content and different interests now. Accept the new generation.

@Ohno
Another salty 90s kid. The thing is, though, that kids still go outside and play sports. And not all girls are obsessed with the Snapchat dog filter. I too think it's annoying. And most people I know don't like the Paul Brothers much. Even though I agree that the PPG reboot is bad compared to the original PPG, there are still some amazing shows from this generation. So please stop stereotyping us and let us go about our day. Thank you. ~A teen

Just because there isn't a lot blood-oldie- doesn't mean they're weak bubbles is naive and won't really pay attention much so maybe that's why she got stuck in a trap anyway. The are mostly trying to focus on they're "normal" life as all kids do and are trying to balance that with their epic abilities

The girls were not that good to begin with for me, they were kind of dull.

6 Craig McCracken didn't want Powerpuff Girls to get a reboot

You know why the President ignored him?
Well mates, all she is interested in is money and ruining our childhoods. When Craig left the original for Fosters, Ppg started to suck, so according to my conspiracy theory she thought "OK guys the reboot will suck without him anyway. So let's just make it as bad as possible". Ignorant git.

I'm so glad Nickelodeon sought out Craig Bartlett for their bringing back Hey Arnold. They are doing right by that show, making sure it's very close to the original with only a few (mostly aesthetic) tweaks. Not like CN with this show.

I actually wanted PPG to get a reboot, but not a terrible one. No wonder Craig did not want a reboot, because he knew it was going to be terrible.-AnimeDrawer85

Craig McCracken could've stopped them had there not been a contract between him and Disney.

7 The new art style makes the characters look off

I liked the art style of the original, but the new one looks so strange. It's as if they were trying to make it look detailed and modern, but instead, it turned out quite bland and as if it was missing something. And what's with the thin lineart?

The background art style is just decent but the character designs does'nt look like the original concept. This reboot is more of sidekick to an Adolf Hitler-esque reboot, TTG (a so-called Heinrich Heimler of CN). The outlines are quite thin but how could I ever seen the grown female characters removed their... uh... I don't want to say. Does'nt mean girls get plastic surgery for removing their uhs? There are some additions:

-Professor Utonium have no longer used of pipes. Plus he is less squared and more circular.
-Buttercup has a cowlick? Don't say.
-Bubbles have a hair tie? Don't say.
-Addition of new villains? Nope.
-Etc. Etc.

Also, the original PPG is one of the great shows and the last Hanna-Barbara shows to produce but let's say that it is a huge disgrace to Hanna-Barbara to their grave. But should Mr. McCracken will see that altrocity about twerking? Let's say that he won't wish to get a reboot since that Father Day special is just weird than I thought.

Congrats previous commentors you have obviously banned your child from watching the you never got to view as cool. The characters look the same with minor changes of course some the background characters and new villains and what not do kinda look like they borrowed styles from Steven universe but that is what make the show better

The new art style is just like the old one, but with new details and thinner lines and more bland colors. Can't they add more thickness to the lines and more color? Also, why did they add Buttercup a cowlick and Bubbles a hair tie?

8 The addition of a "Fourth" Powerpuff Girl

Three Powerpuff girls was perfect! Why four? I don't see the point in a fourth one. Also, she has one of the worst character designs I've ever seen. Seriously, she looks like someone's Mary Sue OC! Her color palette is visually unpleasant and her hair color is so saturated and hurts my eyes. It's as if they hired a 13-year-old girl from Deviantart to be in charge of her character design.

I saw a trailer about how they're gonna add a "Fourth" Powerpuff Girl. In the trailer, other CN characters were getting super excited over this "wonder".

I saw who she was and noticed something weird about her... Her legs were long. Her hair was long and electric-blue. And also... Her name is Bliss. Her skin-color was darker than Blossom's, Bubbles's, and Buttercup's. I guess this is probably, because they have opposite DNA from how she was created and how Blossom, Bubbles, and Buttercup were also created. But, still-- I think it's better with only having 3 girls instead of 4, 5, 6, and so on

Bliss whatever her name is, she looks like a devianart Mary Sue! I don't care about her skin color, but her hair color doesn't make any sense and her legs are weird. The original already had a fourth ppg, Bonnie, she wasn't pretty but she was one of the beatbox characters of the show, even though she only lasted for one episode, they could have brought her back. I'm surprised that bliss doesn't have cat ears or color changing eyes

There's no point to her character. Who is she? She looks like somebody's fanart.

9 It makes the Chris Savino era of the original feel like the Craig McCracken era

Ugh! What is up with people saying that the reboot is worse than seasons 5 and 6 of the original?! Here's the real fact: THAT'S NOT SAYING MUCH! You people don't get it, do you? You would rather watch Pee Pee G's, Sun Scream, City of Frownsville, Sweet and Sour, and Girls Gone Mild over ANY episode of the reboot?! That makes no sense! The reboot is just AS bad as seasons 5 and 6 of the original! Saying that the reboot is worse isn't going to help. I know for a fact that seasons 5 and 6 are just as bad as the reboot.

Yes it does! At least some effort was put in season 5 and 6. The reboot, the writers are deliberately ruining the old show like ttg

Woah, woah, woah, that is saying a lot.

And that's saying a LOT!

10 One of the writers made an OC of himself and made him date Blossom in the show

This is a fact by the way. This just shows how messed up the people making this show are. Congratulations Jared, you can now date your 5 year old waifs blossom. That's pedophilia, that's weebish, and that's messed up on so many levels.

Even if this wasn't the intent, they really should have thought this through better. Because it's creepy

To whoever made an oc to date Blossom, think twice!

I just found this out. This is sick, just sick.

The Contenders
11 It is like Teen Titans Go!

There was even a crossover between the two cartoons

At least the PPG reboot actually fights crime and learn great lessons.

PPG 2016 is more like a sidekick to TTG. PPG is like Anakin Skywalker just joined the Dark Side (TTG). And that Hitler (TTG) always lose CN's reputation for that Reboot (which is more like a Supreme Leader of Animation Altrocity).

These powerpoop girls are total copycats.

12 There is a crossover for the reboot with Teen Titans Go

I watched the crossover of the 2016 Powerpuff Girls and Teen Titans Go. I was rather disappointed and thought it was the stupidest crossover episode I've ever seen. Calling the girls "babies" was rude. Are Robin, Starfire, and Raven blind to the fact that they are in elementary school and know how to deal with crimes and so on? I bet they are, because they think they're "babies". Beast Boy and Cyborg were even worse. They work for Mojo Jojo, then he betrays them and traps them in a cage (Ha-Ha-Ha! )

Teen titans go 'cough toddler titans no cough' and this horrible reboot combined! It must be worse than the problem solverz! If the problem solverz crossed over with this,it will destroy CN. Teen titans go 1 +teen titans go 2,powerpuff girls = 100%destruction!

I hope this reboot, Teen Titans Go and the Bob the Builder reboot don't crossover.

I don't think the crossover was actually bad...

13 Bubbles dressed like a prostitute and smoked

That is a bad example to kids. They removed Miss Bellum and claim she is "innapropriate" when she was more than just a pretty face, but a good adviser and assistant. Yet they do not think it is innapropriate for a five year old to dress innapropriately and smoke? That is going to teach young innocent kids to smoke and wear clothing that is not for their age.

I think she's gay and in a relationship with Blossom. Just saying...

Well, this looks kind of interesting...what episode is that?

That was edited it was never in the show

14 The narrator is underused

All the other reasons are valid but this is a terrible reason, they can do without the narrorator and just let the ppg tell the story (i mean show it not narrorate it obviously)

15 It doesn't have the charm that the original had

This show is basically just full of laziness and stupid outdated memes. The original had none of that!

Outdated memes check

16 Bubbles and Blossom are in a gay relationship with each other

Who is the visitor that keeps claiming that The Powerpuff Girls are in love with each other? There is no evidence or proof this is real.

This is not true at all. Don't post things that aren't true.

New episode coming in August! See it on the 18th!

They're sisters though. How does that work

17 They over use outdated memes for humor and dialogue to make stuff seem hip and cool

The writers of this show think we are going to laugh at their unfunny and uncool stuff. Not. I did not laugh at one single thing about this show. No one thinks this show is funny- AnimeDrawer85

If their target audience are kids who are too young to know the original, then they also won't know those old ass memes from 2005!

This is all I have to say: so? 😕 we all use dead jokes sometimes so don't be hypocrite to kids shows. What a bunch of oldies. I just wanna say this show is y rated meaning for us young trend setters that made Meghan trainer come out of no where and I bet she likes this show in both versions

I love memes. Good memes. But gosh, couldn't they have used classic and new (but good) ones occasionally?

18 The music in the show is very bad

The theme song is very boring. The ending song sounds childish, it sounds like an ending for a nick jr show. The girls actually rapped a terrible song in this show, so bad it will make your ears hurt. The original had better music, the theme song sounded more heroic, the ending was awesome, the song Love Makes The World Go Round is cute.- AnimeDrawer85

The original theme song was boring no lyrics or anything and I like the new theme song it had lyrics and a story to it making it look more appealing to us younger viewers. The old one was borrowed from other superhero themes too like from the 50's. Go rant about Bugs Bunny or something you newbie haters

I'll agree that the new theme song is better, and if the show was as amazing as the theme, I'd pay money to watch it.

I cannot believe the Powerpuff Girls just rapped a rap song that sounds like a rip off Missy Elliot's "Work It". The new theme song sounds boring and dull.

The music for the original was great and fit the show perfectly, but the reboot? Nope.

19 The new Powerpuff Girls are completely out of character compared to their originals

Let see
-blossom: talk a lot, she think of her self, not worthy to have the leadership, jarred guy,try to kill her bubbles because she get the role that blossom want, freezing the city because of jarred
-bubbles: not cute like the real bubbles, completely stupid and dumb and idiot girl,animal lover that she watch a bull fight, she dressed like man? ,farting in the night
-buttercup: the weakest version of original buttercup, can't beat a giant monster, kissing a princess? , never brushed her teeth, doesn't care for her sisters
-the professor: he turned into a completely idiot that he realize the dishes is not washed and didn't notice the house is completely destroyed, putting pepper in pancakes?

Putting pepper in pancakes may be a culinary fashion in my opinion though

Girls, what happened to you?!? You were strong, cute and powerful in the original! Now, you three are completely out of your character!

-Blossom, you were a smart leader but now, you are really bossy in the reboot one!

-Bubbles, you are being cute and cheery in the original one but now, you were a spoiled brat!

-And Buttercup, you were hilarious in the original but now you were too weird.

I love you three girls in the original but I hate you in the reboot.

In the original:
Blossom: The leader and the smart one
Buttercup: The tomboy
Bubbles: The sweet and cute one.

In the reboot:
Blossom: is over the top OCD
Buttercup: Is a bully.
Bubbles: Has concussion and is really dumb and weird

Bubbles - an overexagerrating brat who thinks she's 'cute' and 'trendy'.
Mm.. Yeah! What an inspiring character!

Blossom - the bossy and erratic leader who is.. Somewhat 'intelligent'. Totally a good thing for children to pick up on!

Buttercup - the edgy and 'badass' idiot of the trio.. Wow! So relatable!

20 They are trying to lure in older fans with the nostalgia factor but are failing miserably

Hardly any nostalgia

I feel this is one of the reasons why this show is so terrible and is just disappointing to fans of the original

21 Destroyed Reputation of Original Powerpuffs and Powerpuff Z

They are both good, but the reboot no. What this is missing the spirit that it once had, and the epic battles, references used to make it look cooler, but now it's just kid restricted, which is stupid

I'm fine with the reboot ppgz was way worse

22 The minor characters look like they go to Clarence

I'd rather watch the bad Powerpuff reboot than the AWFUL show Clarence!

No. They look like they live in Teen Titans Go. It's kinda sad, actually.

Clarence should just die. it's the epidemy and sad truth of america in a nut shell because of fast food restaurants.

23 The humor is so bad that people use the "It's Time to Stop" FilthyFrank meme to sum up how bad it is

I have no clue what this "meme" is, but why did they have to bring back the PowerPuff Girls?! I partied 'till dawn and hauled ass to Lalapalooza when it ended! Kill the PowerPuff Girls!
P.S., I can't believe they blocked me from messing up the PowerPuff Girls wikipedia entries!

Ikr? This show is probably one of the most unfunny shows ever. The original was hilarious, this one isn't. And I agree with" It's time to stop". -AnimeDrawer85

Not us young ones

24 Bad story ideas

Yeah, the new episodes have like no plot. In one episode, they even encourage telling secrets about other people just to get what they want!

25 They try to make the show so modern that it will be irrelevant in the next couple of years

This show will be outdated in the future.
