Storyline

The straight-laced Prof. Utonium's attempt to create perfect little girls accidentally includes "Chemical X", resulting in take-charge red-head Blossom, blonde sweety-pie Bubbles and ready-to-fight brunette Buttercup. These flying, super-strong, karate-chopping girls with the occasional heat vision race into action to save the city of Townsville (and, we're told, the world) from all sorts of crimes and creatures. Written by Ray Schaff -2-

Crazy Credits

On the first 4 seasons of the show (1998-2002), the closing logo used at the end isn't Cartoon Network's logo (as seen on Dexter's Laboratory (1996) and many others); instead, the 1980s "swirling star" logo (as featured on Hanna-Barbera cartoons of the time, except for an updated byline mentioning Time Warner) appears.

Alternate Versions

Two scenes in the episode The Bare Facts' segment The Powerpuff Girls: Bubblevicious/The Bare Facts of were edited in the UK: when the flashback story of Mojo Jojo's fight with the girls plays, Mojo Jojo uses nunchucks as a weapon. Also, the finale with the naked Mayor (only showing his rear) at the end was edited. See more »

A VERY sophisticated sci-fi cartoon since Dexter's Laboratory!
11 June 2000 | by Becca-37See all my reviews

Hey, Townies! Look, look up in the sky! Is it a bird? Is it a plane? Is it three flying lollipops? NO!!! It's THE POWERPUFF GIRLS!!! We all cheer boisterously as the three tiny superheroines instantly zoom right over our heads, trailing a bright rainbow of pink, blue, and green! Ever since they first grew right out of Professor Utonium's trusty old mixing bowl, Blossom the sweet-natured leader, Bubbles the happy-go-lucky goldilocks, and Buttercup the scowling little tough-cookie at once assumed the great role as guardians of the cutest little city in the whole cartoondom: Townsville, U.S.A.! And just in time, too because there are also fabulous beasts and gloating villains totally hellbent on wreaking terrible havoc upon such a innocent land of our happiest childhood days...so just use the special hotline and it's POWERPUFF GIRLS TO THE RESCUE!!! Folks, this is no "My Little Pony" or "Rainbow Brite" or "Strawberry Shortcake" or anything like that, for this very cartoon is quite gritty and a bit mature for our wide-eyed young girls as the intended audience as well as being full of very clever humor, satire, and some REAL DEPTH that will really rake in tons of teenaged and adult viewers as well, regardless of their gender and species. So...THREE CHEERS FOR THE POWERPUFF GIRLS!!!
