Powerpuff Girl Wacky Racers

I suck at drawing props, but when Craig McCracken asked me to come up with some concepts for his new Powerpuff Girl 10th Anniversary Special: "Powerpuff Girls Rule!", I jumped at the opportunity. Craig gave me a list of the basic ideas for the cars and wanted me to keep them similar to the old "Wacky Races" cartoon. I thought it would be fun to think of it as if the characters had found the old cars in a Hanna Barbara junk yard and built their own versions. Hopefully Craig will post his amazing storyboards for this special which he drew himself. They are stunning!

Him's "No-Stopper Chopper"


Fuzzy Lumpkin's "Barrel Roller"


The Powerpuff Girl's "Heart Attack"


The Gang Green's "Gang Green Machine"


Mojo Jojo's "Cranky Tanky"


Princess's "Money Burner"

Hmm. That's strange. I thought you said at the top of the post that you suck at drawing props. Clearly that's not the truth. These are brilliant. And done traditionally, right?

These are hilarious, Ben! Thanks for posting your "sucky" props! Geeze. Those of us whose props really suck are now wondering what to reclassify our props as.
