why not older

Postby ikiteruyokazu » Sun Nov 21, 2004 8:07 pm

I think ppg D should be a little older in the base since everybody in the comic act older look older and they talk older.so I was wondering if you can make them a little older than the first grade

All he'd have to do is a small retcon.

It would entirely ruin the story, because the PowerPuff Girls and all of the characters are exactly the same age as they are in their show. The only reason they seem as if they are acting older is because they are now free to act as they would in real life, rather in the confines of cartoon regulations.

The entire web comic would be ruined if they were teenagers, because we know them as young children with pure intentions and innocence. We don't want them to be teenagers, because that could potentially ruin them as humans. Teens are naturally prone to sin and trouble in our society, and because of that we subconsciously want to be something else; something more that we can no longer be. This need is fulfilled through young cartoon characters that give us love that we can never feel. So I say keep them the way they are.

FYI, there's more than one grade in elementary school. He(Bleedman) should emphasize the fact that not everyone that attends the school is in the first grade. Ed, Edd, 'n Eddy should be well older than the Power Puffs.

Is there a set way to act when you're a first grader? Do all first graders have to only like art and recess, to be immature and childish? Not everyone fits the ageist stereotypes you have set for him or her.

How about this: You're a guy, right? And you’re a teenager too. That's great! So since you’re a teenage guy, that must mean you're only worried about having sex with as much girls in your school as possible, while being popular in the process. Sorry, but if all first graders have to be childish and immature, as well as unintelligent, then I guess you have to be a sex-crazed guy.

Even in the show, the PPG(and all the other kids for that matter) act older... at lest like 4th graders... Cause most kidngarders/1st graders ive meet barely talk..

And what do you mean a "small retcon"? Hed have to redraw them to look older, unless were only talking about a few years.. and infact i think theyre a little tall to be 1st graders (on the cast page it says theyre all 4-5 ft.. they should be around 2-3 ft. at the most...)

But oh well, i doubt Bleedman will change it now...

Actually, it's fine just the way they are right now - in the 1st grade. However, they DO act and look like 4th graders.... even older. They have great vocab skills and are far more intelligent than most... wait, ALL... first graders.

But if Bleedman wants them to be 1st graders, then I say, CARRY ON ^^
During the day, in the middle of the night,
two dead boys got up to fight.
Back to back they faced each other,
drew their swords and shot each other.
A deaf policeman heard the noise,
came and shot the two dead boys.
And if you dont believe that this lie is true,
ask the blind man, he saw it too.

no I'm not saying that all I'm saying they act a little high leveled then regular.The only reason with the thing is that it should be a little bit older type but if you think that it is fine with the way it is I respect but I didn't like the commet you made because I have better things to worry about than sex and girls I have an F in most of my subject and I have to worry about stress so I think you don't have any right in saying I'm a so called "sex-crazed guy" because you are the same thing if your saying that

A retcon is when a comic writer decided he doesn't like the story or an attribute of the story, so he just acts like it never happened or changed that. It wouldn't be too hard in this situation, because most of the characters look like they're in 6th grade, at least! They are all very mature, and they look older already. The only thing that's bothering you guys is that they are said to be young. If they were said to be as old as you wanted them to be, there still wouldn't be a need to draw them older.

Don't get all worked up on it! It was just an example. And I think it got my point across pretty well, too.

Ya know I keep picturing this scene where Butercup is failing Chemistry (Teach is Prof. Membrane) and reluctantly gets Dexter and Blossom to be tutors. Butercup isn't understanding it and eventually poses the question of why they are studying chemistry in first grade.
This confuses Dexter. He questions the question and says "This is 6th grade and we were in first grade five years ago."
This is of corse very shocking to both girls.

They tell Bubbles about this and wonder why they unknowingly skipped five years of their education. It turns out that the girls are aging at an advanced speed where they will die in 7-13 years. The Proffesor realized this early on and has been trying for a cure since. That is why they moved to megaville. The city was actually the head of a researching fund for the possibillities of chemical X, and he may have found a cure. He didn't want to scare the girls by telling them they would die before their father, and quite frankly, he didn't want to consider possibility.

Well, I think that the girls do indeed act older then first graders, but then again, they arent exactly your average first grader. Seeing as most firs graders dont exactly have super powers and save people on a daily basis.
Though Ic ould see them as something older perhaps. Wouldnt be impossible.

I'm in favor of keeping the girls, and all the other characters, around the same age that they are in their cartoon counterparts. Also, the older Bleedman makes the characters the louder the cries for...erm...suggestive themes in the comics.

Yeah, I like the age. It allows us to explore death and such without involving sex at all. If you want sexual tension, try to read through the RPG thread.

*Shameless Plug to Read the PPGDRPG thread*
Oddball story of Love, Betrayal, Hate, and Hidden Pasts. Join a Dangerous Pervert, a Half Demon Little Girl, a Reclusive Introvert, a Demonic Janitor, a Ten Year Old Soldier, a Reclusive Emotionless Discarded Government Experiment, and a Mysteriously Scary Villian as we push the boundaries of tasteful roleplaying.

IMO I think they should get older after all they don't look like first graders...I mean the first chapter was a very old comic the Bleedman did for one and he wasn't really thinking of making more.
