Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say Not yet rated
Kids say (5 ):

This fun TV movie, folded into the second season of the show's reboot, tells the story of how Bliss came to be and joined the trio. The story world still incorporates all the goofy interactions with Professor Utonium, as well as their commitment to fighting their enemies. However, it also highlights the willingness of the trio to embrace their sister and support her as she rejoins the family.

In addition to losing control of her powers when she gets emotional, what makes Bliss unique is the dark color of her skin, presumably making her the first non-Caucasian Powerpuff of the franchise. But Powerpuff Girls: Power of Four does not address this difference, nor is her character treated differently because of it. Young fans will find her as appealing as her sisters, while older viewers may appreciate the nod to diversity.
