Critics Consensus

With changes in the visual and characters' voices, this reboot's first season doesn't shine as bright as the original series, but the girl power trio shows once again that it's made of sugar, spice and something nice.

Critic Reviews for The Powerpuff Girls Season 1

All Critics (13) | Top Critics (4)

In this reboot, there's no real attempt at rocking the boat-no elaborate retelling of the Powerpuff Girls' origin story, no winking acknowledgment that this is a new version of a classic, not even a flashy redesign for any of the characters

I enjoy the girl-power vibes and the bright, trippy colors.

Aug 28, 2019 | Full Review…

Perhaps Jennings and Boyle will deliver on the depth and/or the comedy in future episodes, but The Powerpuff Girls, at this point, feel as thin as their new outlines.

While the girls have now moved on from kindergarten to a K-12 school, they still maintain their youthful charm.

Aug 21, 2019 | Full Review…

I was genuinely and pleasantly surprised that the new versions of The Powerpuff Girls felt like a continuation of the original series despite a nearly wholsesale change in the creative team behind the scenes.

Aug 21, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

The reboot's also made a big deal of buffing out the girls' personalities and trying to stretch their identities beyond the old school sweetheart/nerd/tomboy formulation

Aug 21, 2019 | Full Review…

The show lacked the fun action of the original, instead throwing in horrible humor. Worse was the use of constant memes that made it instantly dated.

Aug 28, 2019 | Full Review…

Although the revival doesn't quite hit the mark on what made audiences fall in love with McCracken's original series, The Powerpuff Girls is an excellent addition to the franchise.

Jul 5, 2018 | Full Review…

This reboot seems to take everything we loved about the original series into account, even while adjusting it for a 2016 audience.

Aug 21, 2019 | Full Review…

The animation is a bit sharper, the voices are different, and the character designs are just slightly more feminized, but the show's unrelenting spirit is still there.

Aug 21, 2019 | Full Review…

The Powerpuff Girls benefits from sharp animation that improves on their original images and a revolving door of comically evil villains who always manage to be foiled by three grade-schoolers.

Jul 5, 2018 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

The new Powerpuff Girls show channels the same fun action and endearing personalities as the original.

Audience Reviews for The Powerpuff Girls: Season 1

  • Nov 20, 2018
    This is the only season I watched of this series and it is awful. I can sense that almost nobody wanted to work on it based on how cheap and lazy it looks overall. I cannot even judge it as it's own thing. If the original power puffs never existed, I can garentee that no one would be watching.

    I've seen a few episode but I couldn't watch a whole one.
