If you were #blessed enough to grow up with this great cartoon series, you'll agree with the following statement: The Powerpuff Girls was one of the realest cartoons out there. Directed by Genndy Tartakovsky, the same guy behind most of your other favorite Cartoon Network series (Dexter's Laboratory, Samurai Jack), The Powerpuff Girls distinguished itself from its peers by featuring three little badass girls.
Blossom, Bubbles, and Buttercup's daily routine usually revolved around going to school and then saving fictional city of Townsville from monsters and recurring villains, such as Mojo Jojo, Fuzzy Lumpkins, the Ganggreen Gang, and HIM. But why was the show the realest? Years later, you can revisit an episode of Tbe Powerpuff Girls and recognize life lessons behind the cartoon escapades. Some you probably understood as children, like not judging each other and being nice to each other, but others, such as villain Femme Fatale's critique on patriarchy or the Powerpuff Girls' discussion on gender roles with Major Glory, show the real power of the show years later.
So, in honor of the 10th anniversary of the show's last episode and the fact that it will be returning to TV next year, we look back on 10 times when the series kept it 100. From encouraging us to put fuccbois in their place to the pains of being "forever alone," The Powerpuff Girls was a lot realer than we thought.
