Okay, you're probably asking why I saw the Powerpuff Girls movie. I like the show, it was a bargain seat ($4.50 vs 9.00), and I didn't want to see Scooby Doo. But anyway, I saw this movie wednsday, and there was this one scene where the girls are alone, outside watching TV through a store window. After they leave, there's a special report. And I couldn't beleive it. They used the "Sesame News Flash" symbol, the thundercloud and the lightning bolt. Also, in an episode entitled, "The Rowdy Ruff Boys" Bubbles crashes through a store, and says, "Sorry Mr. Looper." The shopkeep replies, "That's Cooper! Cooper" If you don't get that, you're on the worng board. Besides, now I have a link. Gendy Tardikoffski (sp) and Crag McCracken, two guys that work on Powerpuffs and Dexter's Laboratory, have a few links (far ones anyway) to the Muppets. Firstly, Rob Paulson is a regular voice actor on both shows (he was even in the movie). As we know, Rob was the voice of the animated version of Boober the Fraggle. Secondly, Fuzzy Lumpkins (a powerpuff villain) was based on Sweetums (The interview I read of Craig said Precious, but I have no idea who that is), while I hear that the "Puppet Pals" (intervels on Dexter) are based on Ernie and Bert. Lastly, Paul Williams was a geust voice on Dexter (he played Dexter's piano teacher). And, Paul not only wrote music for TMM (and MCC) but had a cameo in it as well. He also was a guest star on The Muppet Show.
