A few years ago (and even now) I was into Avatar and RWBY. I've never been into the Powerpuff Girls, but I'm a guy. Even with girls that I suspect are autistic, I don't know any who like the Powerpuff Girls. I think the 2016 reboot gives it a bad name.

I was way too old for the Powerpuff Girls and probably wouldn't have been interested in them in the least anyway. My favorite children's cartoon was "Sagwa, The Chinese Siamese Cat," because the feline character was an intelligent character who loved to write-and I am plain in love with cats, particularly Siamese.

I thought the Powerpuffs (the 1990's cartoon, not the detestable new one), was the most awesome thing to come along in a very long time. I used to watch it on Teletoon here in Canada. Three little girls who could beat up Superman, what's not to love? And it was possibly the most humorous and clever cartoon I saw in that decade.

I've created my own versions of The Powerpuff Girls and the Rowdyruff Boys on the Sims 4, designed dresses like they wear in Animal Crossing NL, and made my own dolls of them. I'm trying to avoid the merchandise of the new cartoon.

I was in my 20's when it came out, but I didn't care. Too old for cartoons? NEVER. Besides, the show was clearly made for adults to enjoy as well.

I'm not interested in the new one, maybe because I'm used to the old one, the voices, etc.
I might watch it sometime in the future.

I'm a boy and I love the powerpuff girls, the earlier episodes at least, I could watch them all day! Blossom is my favourite, I wonder about the city of Townsville more than is advised, sometimes I want to wander the backstreets and run into some mournfully majestic monster I can punch twice and then run away screaming just like all the other faceless failed heroes and watch the terrific trio show up and make it go BOOM.

I loved the Powerpuff Girls as a kid. I liked them because I thought they were cool and fun. My favorite Powerpuff Girl was Buttercup and she still is. The reason why I liked Buttercup was because of her appearance and because she was cool and tough. I never really liked Bubbles because I thought she looked like a baby and because she cried over everything. She was my least favorite of the bunch.

I watched the power Puff girls on cartoon Network, then Boomerang. It wasn't my favorite show, but I liked it along with other shows.
