Anybody else remember this episode? In it, a female villain called Femme Fatale is stealing millions of dollars in Susan B. Anthony coins. Naturally, the Powerpuff Girls go to stop her. She then convinces them that men are all horrible because female superheroes aren’t as well known as male superheroes, even asking Blossom to name some to where her only answer is Wonder Woman.
They start acting bitter, refusing to do chores when the Professor asks and even telling the Mayor to save the town himself. Ms. Bellum and Ms. Keane talk to the girls and basically explain that being mean to guys won’t do anything and that isn’t the kind of message feminists should put out.
They proceed to beat up Femme Fatale while giving her a history lesson about Susan B. Anthony, the story where she voted and was found guilty because women couldn’t vote back then, but when the judge wanted to let her off easily because she was a woman, she forced them to take her to jail. The girls handle her and the lesson is that misandry will not stop misogny and we all should just respect each other.
And it fell on Tumblr’s deaf ears.
To the point where many among the sort of person depicted in this episode point out that Lauren Faust later regretted writing the episode. What they conveniently leave out is the fact that it was because of all the death threats she received from that sort of person.
Kinda wish the Monster High animation was more traditional 2d vs. Flash or the 3D rendering
As do I, but unfortunately the animation used here is incredibly expensive and more than Mattel Entertainment’s budget will allow
Coelasquid actually made a similar post about this. She’s a storyboard artist for the webs I think?
Oh and watch the commercial in that link. Lala sounds like Twilight and it’s bizarre.
Seriously! The creator of ‘Manly Guys doing Manly Things’ works on the Monster High webisodes?!!
I… I never knew I needed a crossover between those two things before now.
Yeah sometimes she even posts doll custom stuff she works on.
