I See A Funny Cartoon in Your Future
I'm sorry, but this episode finally made me think the Powerpuff Girls needed to fly away. The colors were blindingly bright (especially in the end credits!
), the voices were annoying (especially
the Narrator's, they must have paid him by the hour or something, he just kept talking
throughout the whole episode!
) and the villain whose name I forgot had an accent that vaguely "homaged"/ripped off someone's from Rocky and Bullwinkle—plus, the duck sidekick seemed to be (to Chris Savino, at least) an "odd" choice for a villain in his mind. Adding a funny flashback
to the "bug-eyed freaks" lampshade made in the movie, the artwork has been painstakingly rendered to make the Powerpuff Girls into—bug eyed freaks. That's it. Bug eyed freaks with a decade's worth of publicity and merchandise. Worse, if the bad art and the voices didn't make you strain for the TV remote, then the white/blue HD Townsville intro, coupled with the irritating colors of the end credits will.
In fact, the only thing I found marginally exciting about the episode was the END CREDITS since the narrator finally shuts up and the horrific episode ends.
Watch the first season on up until you start noticing colors getting vibrantly technocolor. Then turn off the TV. You would have reached the Savino Zone, where irritating colors and bad writing rule.

Yes, but they should have done it in a more thought-out manner. The difference between a homage and a shallow parody is how well it's done. The Rocky/Bullwinkle 'homage' was nothing more than a frantic mess.

It also helps if the viewer is familiar with Rocky and Bulwinkle in the first place and realize it is in fact an homage. Because if you don't, then this episode does indeed seem a bit off from the rest of the series.

Why does everyone agreed on this stupid shit?!

The amount of work put into this entire series was not hard work at all. In other words, the writers did not work very hard on this series, especially compared to other cartoons ranging from Rugrats to Aaahh!!! Real Monsters and even more especially, cartoons made in decades long past. So this review isn't really going far enough in criticism of The Powerpuff Girls, though I do kind of see where the reviewer is going.

Making something with a minimalist art style on a lower budget than your predecessors does not automatically mean you're working less hard.

...how the hell do you know exactly how much effort was put in?

You know, I was just making an educated guess based on observation. And it's all a matter of opinion, anyway.
