I was more into Mojo Jojo.

I still enjoy watching Powerpuff Girls. But as an adult it's for more reasons than girls fighting crime. It's pretty damn clever with the jokes.

I was obsessed with Sailormoon for a long time, and so was my Aspie friend.

While I thought the Powerpuff Girls were cute, I was never really obsessed with them.

By the way, did you know that the Japanese developed a Powerpuff Girls anime? It's called Powerpuff Girls Z. Look it up, I'm serious.

You mean Demashitaa! Powerpuff Girls Z? I've known about it since the first episode came out in Japan.

Powerpuff girls was originally aimed at adults btw, when cartoon network picked it up they decided they'd aim it at both kids and adults, which I think is stupid since it's for kids to the extant that futurama is for kids.

Iwas never obsessed with any TV shows, but one cartoon I remember was Hey Arnold

Only the girls? An absurd premise, outlandish plots, clever jokes and a tendency to get crap past the radar: it's probably the best thing there was on Cartoon Network. I still watch it whenever I can, by the way.

I'll admit I watched them on YTV back in the day.

Girls with ASD's have probably felt like Blossom (red outfit, Powerpuff Leader) sometimes, Buttercup (green outfit, brawny) more often, and even like Bubbles (blue outfit, good with animals) on rare occasions.

Actually, I felt like Bubbles most of the time, Blossom some of the time and Buttercup on very rare occasions.

I know this is an old topic, but I wish to reply to it.

I am obsessed with The Powerpuff Girls, and hard to help myself with buying a bunch of merchandise.
When I first saw it, it was on at a friends house, and I didn't really like it, because of the non-realistic looking drawings (even for a cartoon), but awhile later, I started to watch the first episode and soon it grown on me.
