Powerpuff Girls Special Has Weird New Animation

Powerpuff Girls special

Craig McCracken’s The Powerpuff Girls was one of Cartoon Network’s best series. Beneath the pink-colored veneer was a wonderful action series with strong scripts and smart jokes. Cartoon Network is reviving the characters for a new special to be aired on Monday, January 20, 2014 at 7:30PM. Unfortunately, going by this new trailer, the whole thing is animated with unattractive CG, trying to give it a flat look. It’s also lacking vibrancy, like some of the color has been sucked out in the interest of making the world look more realistic. It could still be good, but it’s a shame that so many people seem to have practically abandoned 2D animation in favor of trying to do the same thing with CG. Read more…

Powerpuff Girls Reboot Finally Confirmed… but When?

Posted by Ben Huber on Dec 17, 2012 in Animation


Sometimes news comes from the strangest places. We’d been hearing rumors of a Powerpuff Girls reboot for a long while now. Lauren Faust’s name also popped up in relation to it, in addition to Craig McCracken and Genndy Tartakovsky. While Genndy confirmed the reboot in his Reddit AMA two months ago, he stated he isn’t involved. But we do know one person involved: Ringo Starr. Yeah, that Ringo Starr. He posted a video update in which he mentioned him doing a voice for a character in the new show… so I suppose that’s about the most random way to get confirmation of a Powerpuff Girls reboot. But now the real question is: they’re doing voicework, but if they haven’t even officially announced the show, when will we “hear” about it? Perhaps 2013 will bring us some new news. Read more…



An Interview with Fred Seibert This Thursday in NYC

Adventure Time

If you’re lucky enough to live near NYC this Thursday Joe Strike will be interviewing animation legend Fred Seibert at MoCCA: “After putting MTV on the map with a series of unforgettable, no-two-alike animated ID spots, he took over the creatively exhausted Hanna-Barbera studio and engineered a turnaround that brought some of the country’s most innovative young animators to its doors. Their creations – The Powerpuff Girls, Dexter’s Laboratory, Johnny Bravo and others – put Cartoon Network on the map. Moving onto an association with Nickelodeon, Fred midwifed second batch of creator-driven cartoons including Wow! Wow! Wubbzy!, Fanboy and Chum Chum and The Fairly Oddparents; Frederator Studios’ latest series, the surreal Adventure Time with Finn and Jake is a major Cartoon Network success.”

I can’t tell you how many times I’ve seen this question asked in recent months, be it on Facebook, Twitter, or in real life: “what is the deal with all my friends getting into My Little Pony all of a sudden?!” So I thought I’d save you fan-persons a bit of trouble and trot out an explanation (get it?). I’ve split it into two sections: first, how adults come to the new animated series from Hasbro, My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, and second, why they tend to fall in love with it. Read more…
