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

That's pretty much all they ever do on Cartoon Network shows, TWERKING

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.

This Gave Me Stage 1 Million Cancer

2 The animation is poorly done

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

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

It's lazy flash and there are too many errors

3 They removed Miss Sara Bellum for a very illogical reason

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!

But animating little girls twerking is perfectly fine, right? >~>

Say what?! That's a really poor decision to do. She had such a crucial role in the original show.

Wait. They removed her!

4 They removed the original voice actors of The Powerpuff Girls

Not only that, but their new voices are terrible and don't fit them. I'd say Buttercup's is the worst.

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

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 all

5 The girls are weak compared to the original

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.

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, 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.

Old fighting scenes: punching kicking,the words pow on the screen new fighting: braking ppg arms or legs

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

*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.

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?

McCraken's choice should matter most.

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 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?

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

Because Flash Animation is much better than animation like Adventure Time's!

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.

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

What is all the hate about? Bliss is awesome!

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

And that's saying a LOT!

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

10 It is like Teen Titans Go!

At Least Teen Titans Go! Is Tolerable Sometimes (I Still Hate Teen Titans Go! )
But This Show Is Pretty Much Unbearable

There was even a crossover between the two cartoons

These powerpoop girls are total copycats.


The Contenders

11 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

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

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

12 Bubbles dressed like a prostitute and smoked

That was edited it was never in the show

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

That's not the Bubbles I know.

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

13 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! )

Cancer Meets Cancer

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

This was just a mess!

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.

I'm gonna vomit now

I HEARD THIS RUMOR! Not particularly fond of the idea.

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

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

Who's even going to laugh at 5-10 year old memes?!?!

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!

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

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 hate the ending song so much, it feels like a nick jr baby show

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.

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

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

Blossom is too neat, Bubbles is so bratty, spoiled, and annoying, and Buttercup is too weird. Bubbles is my least favorite in the reboot.

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.

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

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

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

Hardly any nostalgia

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

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

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!

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.
