THE BIG LEBOWSKI Meets THE POWERPUFF GIRLS in Our Latest Pop Culture Mash-up

When it comes to the things in life that bring you joy and laughter, well, that’s just like, your opinion, man. But we’re fairly confident you’re going to bubble over with excitement after hearing The Big Lebowski performed by one of The Powerpuff Girls.

In the latest clip from our Alpha series, Talkin’ Toons, host Rob Paulsen was joined by fellow voice actor Tara Strong, where the two recreated the first meeting of the Lebowskis (Lebowskii?) from the Coen Brothers’ classic film. She read the role of the Dude as her diminutive but fierce character Bubbles from The Powerpuff Girls, and Rob filled in for the Big Lebowski as his character Mark Chang from The Fairly Oddparents–a fitting choice since Strong was the voice of Timmy on the show.

Like that rug really tied the Dude’s room together, Bubbles was the emotional glue that really tied this Lebowski/Powerpuff Girls crossover together.

Truth be told, the combination of The Big Lebowski and The Powerpuff Girls may seem like a strange one, but it’s not the first time these two properties have met. One episode of the Cartoon Network series dropped a pretty serious reference to a memorable scene in the Coen Brothers’ 1998 comedy–refresh your memory below.
