Done right, this design can work. See pic used in example. Aside from the piercings/glasses, her design is exactly the same. Yet, her character (and thicc thighs) makes her one of my favorite characters in the show right now and I've come to really like her design. I'm not saying personality is the be all end all but it certainly helps. I can be willing to overlook bad physical character design if the character themselves can be made likable. That being said, most of these characters sharing these designs either come across as a whiny peter pan syndrome headcase or some unlikable know it all who's always right, or at least always feels that they do. The childlike wonder/sense of moral authority they are designed to exude instead makes the viewer cringe whenever this person is on the screen or in the panels. It's sad that kids today only know this as entertainment, but who knows, maybe these kids'll be able to rediscover the art of proper storytelling and character design again.
