Doctor Who News Doctor Who, Powerpuff Girls Style!

Cute Powerpuff Girls-style Doctor Who!

Pop culture is ever evolving, changing what is popular and what is part of the public consciousness, sometimes locally, sometimes globally. Many pop culture favorites like superheros and science fiction worlds have a long legacy, with their fanbases aging as the years have gone by, and coming to new generations of fans as their stories get retold, reworked, and reinvented.

Doctor Who is no different, having been a part of British and world culture for the last 50 years.

With the advent of technology and what feels like an ever shrinking world where we are connected to each other in more and more ways, the collective fan bases of pop culture icons come together more and more often to share their stories, their ideas, and their love of their favorite things.

So mashups – taking two (or more) sometimes unrelated pieces of pop culture and blending them together – were almost an inevitable consequence.

With that, I present to you Doctor Who in the style of the Powerpuff Girls.

Created by Tumblr user and digtal artist Lumos5001 (Lumos5000 on deviantArt) for the 50th anniversary of Who last year, every Doctor, including the newly introduced War Doctor and the new 12th Doctor, has been Powerpuff-ized. While there have been plenty of cartoon or comic type versions of the Doctor, these have to be one of the cutest…

As someone who was a teen when the Powerpuff Girls cartoon originally aired, and as a fan of the cartoon, I love these. While the cartoon hasn’t been on the air for nearly 9 years, the Girls still remain a small part of popular culture, with the Girls themselves or their style translated to many other fandoms. (A favorite is turning them into the heros and villians from DC Comics) I also really enjoy seeing all the fandom cartoon mashups that have been made in the last few years. I grew up on cartoons of all kinds and still love them as an adult. (Interesting side note – the Powerpuff Girls will be back on tv soon! A special will be airing sometime in the next month!)

BONUS!
Other artists have taken to drawing the Doctor and his companions in the PPG style. Most recently artist NikHolmes had his Tenth Doctor with Rose, Donna, and Martha on a t-shirt over at RIPT Apparel (in a design now sadly unavailable).

For the David Tennant fans – found in the wilds of Tumblr, this is someone’s idea of how the wonderful Tenth Doctor David Tennant was brought into this world, Powerpuff style.

About the Author

Rebecca is new to the Who world, having only recently watched the entire new series in a span of 8 days. She is no stranger to sci-fi though, being a life long Trekkie and has vague memories of seeing the 4th Doctor on US television as a child. When not watching, reading, blogging, or talking about Doctor Who, she is a fan of pop culture and loves movies and books so much she has to keep a list of both so she doesn't forget any of them. She also likes to make attempts at various forms of art including photography and painting. Rebecca is currently working her way through as many classic serials and as many books related to the show that she can find and wishes she could have been with the Doctor and Amy when they met Van Gogh.
