Well, what is a cute cousin but the ultimate girl-next-door type?
But seriously, the change does make sense if they wanted that road trip plot framing since it's a bit much to believe the setup of a completely unrelated girl being allowed to go on a summer vacation long trip with a boy and his Grandpa, plus IIRC neither Ben or Gwen were very thrilled about going.>>107373323

it was a CN show in 2005 coming off the heels of new hits and classics such as Samurai Jack, Billy and Mandy, Kids Next Door, MegasXLR all that good shit.
It has that feel and quality of the shows of the time, the kind of shows that people still love today and CN likes to reboot and butcher.
I say give the original a watch if you're interested, but Ben 10 is one of those franchises that got progressively worse with each new series until it got killed off and brought back as a shell of it's former self to sell more toys.
