I'm not hating the new style, but change can take some time to get used to. I'm just glad it looks like the voice cast is the same.

Hehe, I loved watching this with my daughter back in the day. Glad to see them back. Use to love Mojo Jo-Jo.

I remember really enjoying the CartoonCartoon block back then. Hopefully this will be as good as the series was.

I'm watching this right now, and while the animation style (choppy, angular CGI seemingly meant to resemble stop-motion cut-out animation) takes some getting used to - this is a pretty darn good revival! It really feels like a lost episode of the show, not re-heated leftovers.

I think bringing it back as a series would be a no-brainer.

Now that the revived series proper (much different from the reunion special) has been brought back: disappointing.

The original was such a bold, stylish cartoon, and this new version is just a bland, generic version of itself. Even the final part of the original series, when McCracken left and the assistants took over, was much stronger than this new incarnation. Still, it's got a great theme song.

The new show is okay, lukewarm or tepid would be good descriptors for the show. The new show is missing elements of what made the PPG a great show to begin with. I think part of it is a shift in tone, the new show is close to the original PPG's tone but the focus seems to be the gags rather than a more balanced blend of action and comedy. The new theme song is pretty good, it's a nice fit for the PPG.

I am still mystified that Cartoon Network never brought Powerpuff Girls Z to North America -- CN even dubbed the show in English for airing in some markets.

It is odd. The PPG themselves look mostly the same as they did in the original, but the rest of the show characters and animation seem way off. I only watched one episode, but I wasn't impressed. I didn't hate it, but I basically have no need to watch any additional episodes. Even watching the original series on Netflix, while my kids have taken a liking to it, any charm it held for me in original airings is mostly gone. (Btw...my kids absolutely hated the new show, and that's only after being acquainted with the original show for about a year)

There are no more good TV Shows, only ones that haven't disappointed me yet.

It seems like the new PPG show is a victim of the spaghetti limbs aesthetic (which most of the new CN shows seem to share). It works for some shows (I.E. Adventure Time) but in others like the new PPG, Be Cool Scooby Doo, and Wabbit it adds some degree of strangeness.

^It helps that Adventure Time's style is based on Pendleton Ward's own drawing style and is influenced by whoever's boarding/directing the episode, as everyone puts their own stamp on the characters much in the same ways the original Looney Tunes/Merry Melodies directors all drew Bugs Bunny slightly differently. There's a strong stylistic sense backing up what are otherwise simplistic figures. None of the shows you list have that unity to them, which just reflects the age old practice of jumping on a bandwagon and lacking what made the original actually work.

... but to me, Be Cool Scooby-Doo looks like a clone of a Seth McFarland show, which I find really off putting.

I KNOW! But I just checked out a bit of it.

And it seems kind of funny. Makes me want to see a few episodes and see how it really is.

We're apparently already in the "randomly airing the remaining new episodes at odd hours with no advertising" stage of this CN's show's lifespan.
