Top 10 Reasons Why the Powerpuff Girls Reboot is BadCartoon Network has made another terrible remake of a classic, iconic, and good show. Watch the original, not this trash.
The Top Ten
Why would they do this? They removed Miss Bellum for being "too innapropriate" which is not even a good reason, yet they do this? This was very disturbing.
Wow, just great, kindergartners twerking. - Catacorn
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
It is good that the twerking scene removed in Turkey. Good on them.21 Comments
You would expect since it's newer it would have better animation. WRONG! Same thing happened with Teen Titans Go!
Ugh - iliekpiez
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 - PandaRant3R
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- AnimeDrawer8510 Comments
How the heck is she 'inappropriate'? She looks like what a NORMAL woman looks like! Excuse us for having breasts and hips that stick out!
This should be number one
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...
They all way do this in hanna barbera cartoons tom and jerry, dexter's lab and properly the flinstones and looney tunes21 Comments
Bubbles is by far the worst. I miss her cute little squeaky voice, her new voice sounds like a teenager falling asleep
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 - thunderstar1124
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! - HunterBrony101
Not only did they move the voice actors they moved their characteristics let's look at the changes buttercup: a bully who is mean to her sisters and only cares about fighting bubbles: a starfire girl who only cares about animals which is ok just that she's not sweet like she used to be blossom: a neat freak and who only cares about cleaning and being a know it all9 Comments
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. - iliekpiez
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. - Ohno
Old fighting scenes: punching kicking,the words pow on the screen new fighting: braking ppg arms or legs2 Comments
*puts on shocked face* Okay that just makes me upset. Even if your reboot will end up being terrible at least ask the creator of the original show if they want a reboot. - Anonymousxcxc
McCraken's choice should matter most. - iliekpiez
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.
Why, CN? Why make a show when the creator wanted to to be left alone? Just WHY?4 Comments
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?
Because Flash Animation is much better than animation like Adventure Time's! - iliekpiez
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 - PandaRant3R
The lines are so thin and there is no variaty in size. It looks odd2 Comments
That was completely useless after all.
There's no point to her character. Who is she? She looks like somebody's fanart.
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 - Myuuu
Trying to get ratings up, I see. Who knew people don't like twerking homour? - iliekpiez2 Comments
Woah, woah, woah, that is saying a lot. - iliekpiez
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
And that's saying a LOT! - SpaceGoofsGeekerBoy
There was even a crossover between the two cartoons
At Least Teen Titans Go! Is Tolerable Sometimes (I Still Hate Teen Titans Go! )
But This Show Is Pretty Much Unbearable - JPK
These powerpoop girls are total copycats.
But MUCH WORSE5 Comments
This is just inexcusable! - BorisRule
That was edited it was never in the show
Oh no, more child s3xualisation crap - BlazingParasol
I think she's gay and in a relationship with Blossom. Just saying...6 Comments
To whoever made an oc to date Blossom, think twice! - BorisRule
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. - DCfnaf
I agree out of all the stupid comments that were posted, that this is not right or it could be a rumor but you'd have to be a complete pervert to do something like that - PandaRant3R
Even if this wasn't the intent, they really should have thought this through better. Because it's creepy - taishisohma11 Comments
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)
This show is basically just full of laziness and stupid outdated memes. The original had none of that!
This was just a mess! - BorisRule
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! ) - Stazemar000
Cancer Meets Cancer
I don't think the crossover was actually bad... - DCfnaf4 Comments
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.
Incest m8! - BorisRule
I'm gonna vomit now - MLPFan
I HEARD THIS RUMOR! Not particularly fond of the idea.5 Comments
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! - Myuuu
Who's even going to laugh at 5-10 year old memes?!?! - TheAlbinoWolf
I love memes. Good memes. But gosh, couldn't they have used classic and new (but good) ones occasionally?5 Comments
I hate the ending song so much, it feels like a nick jr baby show
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
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.
You are watching nick jr powerpuff girls fighting crime what2 Comments
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
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.
-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 - BorisRule
Blossom is too neat, Bubbles is so bratty, spoiled, and annoying, and Buttercup is too weird. Bubbles is my least favorite in the reboot.6 Comments
I feel this is one of the reasons why this show is so terrible and is just disappointing to fans of the original
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
No. They look like they live in Teen Titans Go. It's kinda sad, actually.
I'd rather watch the bad Powerpuff reboot than the AWFUL show Clarence!
Clarence should just die. it's the epidemy and sad truth of america in a nut shell because of fast food restaurants.
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 - PandaRant3R
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!
This show will be outdated in the future.
My favorites - DWisawesomethe3rd
The rowdyruff boys made the original very interesting since they were created. I hope they put them in the reboot but I hope they don’t ruin them like they already did with the powerpuff girls.
I heard that they will come in episode 40 in season 1, I hope it actually happens.
I'm tired of people complaining about the rowdyruff boys1 Comment
They ruined my favorite cartoon character. Why did they do this to Buttercup? She called her own sister ugly in a picture and threatened a kid to vote for blossom or she will beat him up.
Shes worse in the original she calls a kid fat and she also called bubbles ugly and blossom a freak
I remember in the original that Buttercup bullied a kid who eats glue
Butter cup is total crap in the update. who asked to turn her into a bastard?7 Comments
Sad but true
They are not - PandaRant3R
The villains were one of the best parts of the show
This show barely shows any of the characters. And whenever Mojo Jojo came, it was just an insult to me.
The new villains are crap
Dummies it's a kids show and CN are trying to focus on the girls growing up as preteens or whatever and going to school not kicking butt all the time which is what buttercup wants anyway so... This section is totally her - PandaRant3R5 Comments
The background characters look more for a show like Clarence rather than this show.- AnimeDrawer85
None of these are true, I kind of like the reboot. I wished that if they could just give this show a break and JUST LIKE IT!
Or Steven universe - PandaRant3R
What did they do to the Gangreen Gang? Ace looks like a girl! Snake (my favorite character) has an ugly design with thick eyebrows and thick grey lips! He has round eyes and round pupils instead of snake eyes. Billy's hair looks like a mop. If they can't make it better, they should stop ruining great characters.
All the new ones are some filthy dumb movie stars and the new ones all act like mean neighbors
From the one episode of this I tried to watch I can tell that they made Mojo Jojo into a Denzel Crocker character. Like no. Mojo Jojo doesn't deserve to get all Denzel Crocker like. - Anonymousxcxc
Mojo Jojo was great too.3 Comments
Actually they also sweared in the original - BorisRule
I guess when you want characters you like to do more cool and entertaining stuff, you'll forget what the show is supposedly about, and start slacking off and/or ditching rather than fighting crime. Wow, what an inconvenience! - RB-Number1-fan
The girls are more like normal girls doing normal stuff everyday people do rather than unique superhero girls.- AnimeDrawer85
I could tell because of the effortless work they put into the reboot.-AnimeDrawer85
Greed. That's all I'm saying.
They once used a joke from Bobs Burgers
Craig McCracken would be so ashamed of Cartoon Network. What have you done, Cartoon Network? - ModernSpongeBobSucks
No me gusta
The fact that the original wasn't chosen( even if they got the original voice actors) ticked me off. - Drawbox
What does it mean
Fashion Forward copies the First Movie, Secret Swapper of doom copies The cent of money, Halt and Catch Silico copies Krabby Kronickle, Rainy Day copies SB-129, Painbow copies planet of the jellyfish, sister sitter copies Suds and Pet sitter Pat, and Strong Armed copies The splinter, Stuck In the Wringer, and Accidents will happen. This show can't make up it's own ideas.
This is why Bubbles is my least favorite in the reboot. What happened to that kind, sweet animal lover?
No face and me gusta face were pissed off to be in the same second
They didn't use RIGHT meme - BorisRule
Memes are so 2011 & 2012
Any viewer of the original series would know that the girls were created in a lab experiment gone wrong. But for new viewers, how the hell are they supposed to know? They just think they're little kids with superpowers. - craz
In the original show they explain the girls's origin story in the theme song, how do they not explain it here? - Anonymousxcxc
Okay, I can agree this is definitely agree this to be one of the worst changes. Seriously, the Original Emergency phone was perfect and all that! -_- - RB-Number1-fan
They wouldn't be cool if they stood (well, floated) in a freezer in the arctic in the middle of winter, eating ice cream.
Reminds me of that Game Shakers show. also it reminds me of those It's a Trap adverts they made
