Yes, you read that right, they are back!
Those were the days when The Powerpuff Girls, Dexters Laboratory, Cow and Chicken and Johnny Bravo ruled the TV. The Powerpuff Girls first aired in 1998 and ended in 2005, but now 11 years on, it’s back and we welcome Blossom, Bubbles and Buttercup with open arms. It aired last night on Cartoon Network, the TV station of my childhood (alongside Nikelodeon, (Nick N Nick Nick N Nick Nick Nick)) Honest, as I’m writing this article I have serious nostalgia for these shows!
If you have a major love for The Powerpuff Girls you can actually become part of their ‘super squad’ by Powerpuffing yourself… that sounds like a really weird innuendo but I promise, it’s not. Head over to www.powerpuffyourself.com and become part of the girl gang with the hashtag #PowerpuffYourself, it’s literally everything you ever wished for when you were 6, and more…
The best thing about it? You can have crazy hair colours, different skin tones, skulls in your eyes to show your evil side and cute ballerina outfits to show your girly side, just like Buttercup. So brilliantly diverse.
Here’s one I did earlier. Don’t judge me.
At the point in which The Powerpuff Girls were major on TV, they were the epitome feminism and we didn’t even know it. The girls, as you all know, are made with sugar, spice and all things nice, oh and a little bit of ‘Chemical X’, and fight off bad guys such as Mojo Jojo without jeopardising their femininity.
The new series, apparently, is set to put the ‘girl power’ mantra to good use and show that it’s okay to be tough and feminine at the same time and what better way to reinvent The Powerpuff Girls than today, 2016. Buttercup has always been known to be the toughie of the group, Bubbles the cutie and Blossom the leader of the trio and according to the team behind the new series, nothing is changing with the girls’ personalities. However, as well as simply fighting off The Gangreen Gang and saving the Mayor of Townsville, the girls will face real life social situations, which we all know to be tough and daunting, by going to high school which will hopefully develop young viewers while still providing for the reminiscent, millennial audience. Through situations that we have probably found ourselves at some point through school or university or both, we can be sure to be able to relate to the girls as an older generation.
Not only should young viewers be goggling at the new series of The Powerpuff Girls but us millennials should definitely be taking note too… Lesson 1. How to kick ass and still be an A-list cutie.
I am now going to find where I can watch all my old favourite TV shows and relive my childhood for a short time with a big bowl of Rice Krispie Multigrain Shapes.
