Forums - General Discussion - Powerpuff Girls D - A love letter to old-school Cartoon Network

If like me, you were a kid in the late 90s, early 2000s, you probably remember The Powerpuff Girls. A cartoon about three little girls created by a scientist saving the world (Or at least, the city of Townsville).

Back in the early 2010s, I found out about this project made by SNAFU. I'm talking about "Powerfpuff Girls D". It's a comic series created in 2004.

Blossom (I must be the only one that thinks she is more adorable than Bubbles btw), Bubbles and Buttercup, now 11 year old girls (Actually, 6, but if you remember the opening, they were "born" as 5-6 years old. They were never babies). Against their will, they move to the city of Megaville, and need to adapt to this new life with their "dad", the Professor. With new powers, and In this school they meet Dexter, a genius boy who love to create robots. From this point, the series get a much darker tone and it gets a flood of references to Cartoons from CN.

Even if still family-friendly (Although I don't recommend it to small kids due to some violence), the plot talks a lot about topics like revenge, sadness, and adaptation. Dexter wants to bring his sister Dee-Dee back to life after she died in an accident. This just tells how more mature this is compared to the original material. But still there's a couple of jokes around the way.

It's still being updated with new chapters, and the story got a lot of fans around the world. To me, the Powerpuff Girls D is one of the best fan-works I ever saw. The quality of the art is incredible, the plot is very engaging, and I'm pretty sure this would be a success if turned into an animation.
