When I was younger, I loved the Powerpuff Girls and I too danced to “Buttercup (I’m a Super Girl)” by the Japanese girl band Shonen Knife on our kitchen table! My dad spent two weeks making an elaborate Halloween costume of Blossom when I was in PreK because I identified with Blossom; my mom liked Buttercup because she’s sarcastic (both my mom and Buttercup) and my best friend liked Bubbles. I drew myself as the 4th PPG when I was 5! Can you spot the differences between young Chapel’s kitchen and the present-day kitchen? Check in next Friday for the answers!

If you appreciate the adorableness that is young Chapel in her nightgown, then you’ll love this Anniversary greeting card I designed featuring young Chapel which you can buy from my Zazzle store.
Let's see now...there's more family pics, one of Barnaby together with Chapel and one of Chapel alone; the CD player changed into...what's that called? MP3 player?; the vase with the calla lily is replaced by a pitcher containing pretty yellow flowers; the table now has green table cloth; and a poster of Lady Gaga covers the PPG poster.

Yes I know I'm being show-offy and pedantic...but I just cannot resist!

Then and now, Chapel is VERY CUTE! ^^

Wow, you're fantastic! I bet you always do the best at "find the difference" games. I'm so happy you took the time and notice all the details I put into the comic, that's what makes it truly worthwhile to me!

Chapel was sooooooooooo cute!!
annie 7/21/13
I know -- she's adorable!
 Emma  7/27/13
 
That reminds me of one of my favorite sayings: "Growing old is mandatory - but growing up is optional." This is my life motto.
Clockwork Wombat 11/17/12
That's a fantastic life motto!
 Emma  3/8/13
 
WOW!
lala 10/8/12

 Emma  10/31/12
 
OMG THIS IS BY FAR THE MOST CUTE COMIC EVER MADE PERIOD.
10/8/12
Wow, thank you!!! I think it's cute as well!
 Emma  10/31/12

10/3/12
I KNOW!!!!
10/8/12
Thank you!!
 Emma  10/31/12
I'm glad you like it!
 Emma  10/31/12
 
little chapel is just too cute did you ever watch fosters home for imaginary friends or my little pony?
Yarin 7/18/12
I used to watch Foster's, yes! Not MLP, though.
 Emma  7/22/12
I LOVE fosters! ... No comment about the other one tho...

I'VE BEEN TOTALLY LOKI'D

Harry Potter PWNS ALL 7/15/12
Ah Thor, I've seen that, pretty good movie
Miss L.S.P 7/16/12
Good bye Harry Potter, hello Loki. He's your upgrade isn't he?

HARRY POTTER ALWAYS PWNS ALL 7/16/12
(puts on voice changer to make me sound like Darth Vader) Search your feeling HPAPA, you know this to be true! Come, join me in the dark si- ... (ahem) Deep Geekdom!
Dr. Taxil Necrobane 7/17/12
I only briefly flit to the Dark Side every so often to give Loki hugs.
He needs them <33333
But I'm on the Light Side/Good Side. Because they have Fred, George, Iggy, Peeta, Liam Payne, Percy Jackson, Reynie, and my other past and present loves
Harry Potter PWNS ALL 7/17/12
(keeping Darth Vader voice going) ah, the deep geekdom has already planted it's seed inside your mind. Harry Potter's story, however good it maybe, is now done. it's story is told. It has come to it's end.

It. Will. Fade. Away.

It will not vanish, but it can not keep you forever HPPA. All of us here are more than willing to lead you to greener geekdom pastures.

Sense you are fixated on "Harry"s i would point you toward "The Dresden Files" of an upgraded Harry that Potter can never match. you need to read "dead beat" to understand why. >)
Dr. Taxil Necrobane 7/17/12
Harry Potter will never end. Never. It has far too large of a fan base and I am the Harry generation, I know I for one will pass it on to the next. And I'm rereading it for a fourth time, I'm on Deathly Hallows, actually. My fourth time in two years - once in 2010, twice in 2011, and once this year. So no, I don't think it'll die anytime soon. LONG LIVE HP
Harry Potter, once again, will ALWAYS PWN ALL 7/19/12
that was a pretty awesome conversation, you guys. :D
Ava 7/19/12
YEAHHHHHH BUDDY XDDDDDD
Harry Potter PWNS ALL 7/20/12
Agreement.
doodlefox 12/9/12
I will happily join the evil f- deep geekdom!
Haisen 8/9/12
I still haven't seen it!
 Emma  3/8/13
 
Oh. My. God. That little Chapel...!!
Changes to the kitchen --
-tablecloth
-ipod holder
-more pictures
-lady gaga poster
and obviously different flowers..
The Buttercup costume looks REALLY good! At first I thought it was a doll...!
Ginny Weasley fan 7/15/12
WAIT A MINUTE.... YOU ACTUALLY GET TO MEET ALL THOSE ARTISTS????
That is soooooo awesome!!!
Ginny Weasley fan 7/15/12
No, as I said below, they're just the others who have been nominated for the same post as I was.
 Emma  7/17/12
Whoops sorry!
Ginny Weasley fan 10/13/12
Hmm, I think you got everything! You have an AMAZING attention to detail, oh my god. And I'll pass the praise for the costume on to my dad, our resident seamstress!
 Emma  7/17/12
Thank you.
Oh also, have you read Drama? It's by Raina Telgemeier. I'm currently on the school library waiting list for it.
Ginny Weasley fan 10/13/12
 
awww I love Little Chapel!
also I love the change in the amount of panels. are you going to start to sometimes do more than four or is this a one-time thing?
:)
Ava 7/15/12
No, I think this is a one-time thing! It's too much work to do it regularly, this was just an exception.
 Emma  7/17/12
 
Is it Ok if I send examples of your comics to my penpal in France? I'll be sure to give you credit and everything!
Kari J. 7/14/12
Emma, I really need to know before tomorrow, so if you could let me know soon that would be great.
Kari J. 7/14/12
Yes, go right ahead!
 Emma  7/15/12
Yes, it's okay to send it! I'd love to know what she/he thinks! I've been looking for someone to translate Chapel into French, speaking of France...
 Emma  7/15/12
I speak a BIT of French...

I just saw that The Powerpuff Girls is on at 5 o'clock in Pennsylvania! I didn't know that they still played it.
Ellie 7/14/12
Huh, that's amazing! It must be reruns.
 Emma  7/15/12
 
I love your costume!
Ellie 7/14/12
Thanks, I'm so glad you do!
 Emma  7/15/12
 
OMIGOSH! Young Chapel is sooooo......... adorable! Also, I'm so happy for you for being able to meet some of your favorite artists! Oh, and nice costume! (^^)
Miss L.S.P 7/14/12
Oh, no, I don't get to meet them, they're the select past people who have held the Cartoonist-in-Residence position that I'm now holding. And isn't she? Chapel was SO cute as a child!
 Emma  7/14/12
I know right!!!
Miss L.S.P 7/15/12
 
One should never outgrow dancing on the table (or other home-made stage) no matter what the age may be! Heck, I spend 4-6 months making elaborate costumes just so I can strut my stuff at the local renaissance faires every year, it's much the same thing, I think.
Nefarious Dr O 7/14/12
Renaissance Faires are different, I think...I do the same with the Dickens Faire in San Francisco, which I attend every year with my best friend!
 Emma  7/14/12
I go to both!!! :D :D :D I usually just wear jeans to the Dickens Faire and something NOT HEAVY to the Renaissance, because since it's in Pleasanton during the summer, it is always so hot I feel like I am falling into the Z-Neutrino Core an the Crucible! (heh heh...)
P.S. Somebody should host a DOCTOR WHO FAIR!!! :D!!!!
Clockwork Wombat 11/17/12
 
Ah yes, Peanuts is a classic comic. I liked that ol' strip. But some time ago i stumbled across a hybrid "The Touhou Project" and Peanuts. It got me intrested all over again. I love Touhou and i recommend everyone to try it out.

heck, Touhou might be the one game Fred CAN'T beat Chapel at!
Dr Taxil Necrobane 7/13/12
I don't play video games, but I've heard that Touhou is fun! And yes, Peanuts is wonderful.
 Emma  7/14/12
 
Oh, my gosh, congrats, Emma!!!! Have fun!
And BABY CHAPEL. SHUT UP. THE ADORABLENESS IS KILLING MEH.
And I was obsessed with PPGs too XD I loved them!!
Harry Potter PWNS ALL 7/13/12
good god, i just remembered when PPG was brand new. so long ago.... ><

However, little chapel is cute, but i also find Little Emma more so! The fact that Miss Emma's Dad is "One of us!" in such that he is so good in hand making cosplay costumes! (offers Mr. Capps a Bro-Fist Fist bump)
Dr Taxil Necrobane 7/13/12
Yes, my dad is great and I'm so pleased he makes me costumes! <3
 Emma  7/14/12
Baby Chapel is SO CUTE, huh? And I'm glad you liked the PPGs, too! Which one was your fave?
 Emma  7/14/12
Oh, I think I loved a bubbles cuz she was blue XD
Harry Potter PWNS ALL 7/14/12
 
That reminds me so much of me when I was four. The only difference was I was the only kid my age who took one look at Barney and hated it!

It's a shame PPG went off air, at least where I live anyway.

Also, good luck on your comic class! I'm sure you'll do fine.
Riv 7/13/12
I found out that PPG was picked up by an anime company and was turned into a long running show over in Japan. They changed and upgraded the art work, but it seems to remained intact other wise. I guess you can still find more of it out there.
Dr Taxil Necrobane 7/13/12
Oh yeah, PPGZ! I already knew about that one, they changed quite a few details of the story, though.
 Emma  7/14/12
I also hated Barney! Powerpuff girls was an excellent replacement. And yes, it did go off the air, sadly...Thank you, I'm looking forward to the class!
 Emma  7/13/12
Wow, I thought for sure no one else disliked Barney from the git go. I wouldn't say I hated it, but I know for sure that I never liked it.
blaidd gwael 7/15/12
Oh the dreaded Barney.
At my school calling someone Barney (along with Bieber, Elmo, etc.) is a MORTAL insult!!
Ginny Weasley fan 7/15/12
 
Awww, little Chapel is so adorable. :D And I REMEMBER the PowerPuff girls! I never really watched it, but I saw them everywhere.
Emily14 7/13/12
I'm glad you like little Chapel, she's so cute, isn't she? And that's neat you knew about the Powerpuff Girls! Since you didn't watch them, what did you watch, if anything?
 Emma  7/13/12
Hmm, a variety of things. I did watch Teletubbies (embarassing, I know, but I loved them when I was little). And me and my siblings always LOVED Barney. lol
Emily14 7/17/12
 
I agree with the thing about maturity and age :D.

Can't wait to see you at the Schulz Museum!
Michelle 7/13/12
I've grown old, i just haven't completely grown up. ;-)
Dr Taxil Necrobane 7/13/12
Ha ha, you've still got a young spirit yet, Taxil!
 Emma  7/13/12
i can see that the radio has been replaced by an ipod.
butterflyer 7/24/12
Ah, where be the fun in the traditional concept of "growing up." I think there is a further difference between maturity and "growing up." You can still derive pleasure from childish pursuits and simple joys while being perfectly capable of being responsible and "mature."
blaidd gwael 7/15/12
Oh wow, you're going to come see me at the Museum? I'm so flattered, I look forward to meeting you! And yes, maturity level doesn't always directly follow age, does it?
 Emma  7/13/12
I SOO wish I could come and see you, but I live on the other side of the country, so..
