Cartoon Network is rebooting the popular Powerpuff Girls franchise, but they’re eschewing the classic style. Digital cartoonist Ed Peppe notes, “People out there aren’t really a fan of the art/animation style of the upcoming Powerpuff Girls reboot. I agree. So as a little project, I took the first promo clip Cartoon Network had put out and decided to reanimate it from scratch. Not sure if I did any better or worse, but at least it kept me from getting rusty.”
Here’s how Peppe emulates the thick lines, posing and timing of the original series:
