Girls in general love Powerpuff girls. So why should autistic girls be any different?

For a four year old, the Powerpuff Girls are the Bomb! Five-year-old girls to look up to!

I was in high school at least when Powerpuff Girls came out, so I wasn't into cartoons much at that age.

My obsession for cartoons never abated. But, I do prefer the classics from the beginning of animation up until about the 60's when they stopped making shorts for movies.

Newer stuff has to appeal to something different. So, from the 60'd onward it's punctuated by certain cartoons and animation.

is there that much of a connection?

i REALLY liked it when i was 2 and even until i was about 5 or 6, maybe longer, but i remember being more obsessed with Tarzan, stacking objects and my snail toy at the same time than i was the power puff girls.

i find theres a big connection with autism and Sonic, My Little Pony and even Five Nights at Freddys.

My NT cousin loved the Power Puff Girls when she was aged between 6 and 9.

I have read in many places that it is normal for small kids to be crazy over a particular cartoon.

.. I have little media-related interest or obsession. :|

I could be a fan of a genre, but not a fan of anything specific with a name or title.

I didn't really notice a trend of autistic girls in particular liking the Powerpuff Girls. I think it's a thing quite a few girls in general liked.
I used to love it when I was little, because I liked the cute designs of the triplets, were but I also loved how, despite the main protagonists being girls, the show wasn't 'girly' or patronising unlike some other shows with female protagonists. It had its fair share of action and clever comedy. I used to have the dolls as well. (*^^*)
Even now I think the original series (not the 2016 reboot - pure sacrilege) is one of the better shows of Cartoon Network. I like how it parodies common superhero tropes, and doesn't aim at one audience in particular - it offers something for both kids and adults to enjoy.

I liked it well enough, and though I've never been the manliest, I'm still not a girl...

Its a stupid meaningless question because the OP cites no data that supports her contention that the show was more popular among autistic girls than it was among non autistic girls.

well since many of us men and woman, still like cartoons even after adults, is not hard to imagine why they like it.
