Sugar, Spice and Everything Nice

"Originally the Whoopass Girls, the Powerpuff Girls were created by CalArts student Craig McCracken in 1992 in his short film Nikki's Ninja Fighting Superpowered Girls! in A Sticky Situation. The short was selected for Spike and Mike's Sick and Twisted Festival of Animation in 1994; subsequently McCracken submitted it to Cartoon Network while working on Dexter's Laboratory. As Cartoon Network couldn't keep the offending name, the girls were renamed the Powerpuff Girls.

As of March of 2006, The Powerpuff Girls has been taken off the air due to bad scheduling and a lack of popularity. However, episodes still air in Britain .... While many believe that the series is canceled, Craig McCracken denies this. He is currently busy working on Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends, and most of the crew who worked on the series is busy with other projects. McCracken states that in time, he will make a few more episodes of The Powerpuff Girls."

    That would be the reaction of my neighbour's son,Deepak, who used to wait each evening at our place just to watch FOWERFUUF GIRS(his parents never switched on the TV, thinking that it would spoil his studies, but my mother was very considerate of the boy's love for FOWERFUUF GIRS). I never understood what he meant. Later, when I watched the episode with him, I realized it was Power Puff Girls... I never liked it, but he looked at the TV as if he could never admire these girls more. So who says its not popular.. at least for Deepak, these girls were his first love....

    to echo Sou - how can powerpuff girls not be popular!! I've been looking for a Powerpuff girl lunchpack (like Udee's Barbie lunchpack...btw, she has boring Tupperware one now!) Just shows what the numbers show....absolutely NOTHING!! I wish they'd bring the show back on.... I miss all the girls and professor and mayor and even mojo jojo :((

    OMG - I LOVE the Powerpuff Girls. Didn't know they went off the air. It's been ages since I've seen them on TV - that explains a lot.

    I actually went to a "Sick and Twisted Animation Festival" event in Austin Texas once. I don't remember all the details, but basically, it involved a lot of very weird animation. Some of it was very sexually weird or just about pornographic, but a lot of it was just WeIRd. What I actually remember most about it was the movie theater we went to in Austin to see it! It was also a pizza restaurant. So, there were tables in front of the seats and you could order pizzas and drinks to have during the movie. People were loud and laughed a lot and it was a lot of fun! :-)

    I always liked PPG. I'm not a super-huge animation fan, though I'm a comic book fan from way back, but I always liked PPG for having some of that snarkiness of the old Bugs Bunny and smart feminist sensibility under the hood. It's been a long time since I've seen an episode.
