I know some people out there are upset by the look of the new PPG Special, and that is totally cool with me! But I will say that nothing in this one-off special is ever going to change the original show that you know and love! Also - PPG is one of my biggest animation influences (along with Dexter’s Lab and Samurai Jack) and made me want to become a professional animation person. You’d be hard pressed to find a bigger Powerpuff Girls fan than myself. Working on this special was a dream come true for me as well as for the other artists who worked on it. But as much as we love the original show, none of us could see the point in doing the exact same thing again. There are six beautiful seasons AND a movie AND an anniversary special which were done in that style. So why not try something new? It’s just a single episode, and it’s our own personal love letter to the Powerpuff Girls. So love it or hate it, it was made with nothing but good intentions and peace and love and no one will force you to accept this version of the girls if you don’t want to.
And now I’ve gotta pick up my axe and get back to work! *chop chop chop*
"Bani Garu" is my new webcomic at BoingBoing.net about the year I worked for the notorious animation studio GAINAX. Aside from telling stories to friends and one interview about that year, I’ve never shared what happened before.
I’ve been trying to find Savage/Bunny Girl a home for 5 years now, and I’m glad it’s at a great site like BoingBoing!
