Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (25 ):
Kids say (103 ):

Sure, they're cute, and the animation is nicely stylized, but this is still your standard superhero setup. Some might say that The Powerpuff Girls is meant to empower little girls -- to give them their own action heroes -- while others might see the frenetic fighting as over-the-top and not a great influence. Checking in with your younger kids about how they feel after watching a scary or brutal episode might be a way to gauge whether this show is appropriate for them. But tweens and teens will get a kick out of the bubbly, butt-kicking trio and their adventures.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
