  • show Description
  • Created by Craig McCracken, The Powerpuff Girls has become popular with a broad audience. The Powerpuff Girls first incarnation was as a project for Craig McCracken's college class at The California Arts Institution in 1992. Three years later, the crew at Cartoon Network saw it and gave it its first pilot in 1995. Later on in the following year, The Powerpuff Girls had their second pilot, and finally a TV series in 1998.The show is about three little girls who were created in a laboratory experiment by Professor Utonium, who combined sugar, spice, and everything nice in an effort to create the perfect little girl. However, the professor accidentally added some "Chemical X" into the mix, and the three girls were born from the resulting explosion. With their super charged powers, they challenge the forces of evil so that justice will prevail.The Powerpuff Girls is one of Cartoon Network's original animated series and is part of the collection known as Cartoon Cartoons.The Powerpuff Girls is one of Cartoon Network's highest rating shows. Craig McCracken is also the creator of Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends.Show Info:Rated: TV Y-7Show Times:The show's schedule changes often.

The most intelligent and intellectual one of them all, she comes up with most of the plans to defeat the villains. She has very long red hair. At times she can be bossy but she always finds a way to keep her sisters from fighting each other. Her element is everything nice.Bubbles - Bubbles is "the joy and the laughter" of the group. As the sweetest one of all, she is overly sensitive and just hates to fight with her sisters. Even though she may seem bubbly on the outside she really is tough on the inside and proves at times to be hardcore as her sisters. Her element is sugar.Buttercup - Buttercup is "the toughest fighter." Her philosophy is to fight first and ask questions later. She is the most eager to defeat the villains on their missions. Though she seems tough all the time, she does have a sensitive side to her, which she rarely shows. Her element is spice.Professor Utonium - The creator of The Powerpuff Girls, Professor Utonium is their father-figure who guides, teaches, and loves the girls. Mojo Jojo - The most maniacal of all the villains, Mojo hates The Powerpuff Girls with a vengeance. He used to be known simply as Jojo, the Professor's lab assistant, but after The Powerpuff Girls' birth, the chemicals that created them affected him as well and mutated his brain. Ever since then, he's dedicated his life to crushing them and the world that loves them.Him - Known as the evilest of evil, Him is a devil figure who despises The Powerpuff Girls. His plans to destroy them are typically the most psychologically twisted, but he always fails in his efforts. Fuzzy Lumpkins - A country hillbilly. Fuzzy doesn't really care about world domination or taking over Townsville. He just wants people off his property, and turns into a dangerous monster that the girls must fight when anyone violates his personal space. Princess Morebucks - A spoiled brat with a rotten temper. Princess is rich and gets anything she wants -- but when she meets The Powerpuff Girls, having super powers is what she wants most but can never have. She uses technology to act duplicitous, in hopes of either joining or destroying the Powerpuff Girls, but her efforts always fail.The Mayor - The dumb, but lovable ruler of Townsville. He mindlessly watches over Townsville and when there's trouble he uses the hotline and alerts the Powerpuff Girls right away. Ms. Bellum - The beautiful brains behind the Mayor. Whenever the Mayor does something stupid, she corrects it. He would be lost without her. She is also an important female role model for the Powerpuff Girls. In many ways, Ms. Bellum and the Powerpuff Girls are the most powerful people in Townsville.Ms. Keane - A teacher at Pokey Oaks Kindergarten who is a mentor to The Powerpuff Girls. She is gentle and kind, and when there are problems in the oom, she shows The Powerpuff Girls a better solution without violence.The Amoeba Boys - Three villains that desperately try to come up with crimes worthy of getting the Powerpuff Girls attention, so they can be considered super villains and go to jail. But they're just amoebas, and their efforts never really come to much.The Gang Green Gang - A gang comprised of 5 mutated green-skinned teens. Their names are Ace, Big Billy, Grubber, Snake, and Lil' Arturo. Unlike most villains they are not that concerned about taking over Townsville. They just love to commit petty crimes. Sedusa - Yet another villain, Sedusa is a medusa-like figure who has snake-like hair, the source of her superpowers. She is a master of disguise who uses her feminine wiles to seduce men into giving her want she wants and escaping crimes.The Rowdyruff Boys - The evil male counterparts of The Powerpuff Girls, these three boys were originally created by Mojo Jojo, using snips, snails, and puppy-dog tails, which he mixed together in a disgusting prison toilet. Their powers are a fairly even match for the girls.Awards & Nominations: 2005 Annie Awards - Character Design in an Animated Television Production (Nominated) 2004 Annie Awards - Outstanding Character Design in an Animated Television Production (Nominated) 2003 Annie Awards - Outstanding Character Design in an Animated Television Production (Nominated) 2001 Kids' Choice Awards - Favorite Cartoon (Nominated) 2001 Annie Awards - Outstanding Individual Achievement for Music Score an Animated Television Production (Won!) - Outstanding Individual Achievement for Production Design in an Animated Television Production (Won!) 2001 Emmy Awards - Outstanding Animated Program (For Programming Less Than One Hour) (Nominated) 2000 Annie Awards - Outstanding Individual Achievement for Writing in an Animated Television Production (Nominated) 2000 Emmy Awards - Outstanding Individual Achievement in Animation (Won!) - Outstanding Animated Program (For Programming One Hour or Less) (Nominated) 1999 Annie Awards - Outstanding Individual Achievement for Directing in an Animated Television Production (Nominated) - Outstanding Individual Achievement for Production Design in an Animated Television Production (Nominated) - Outstanding Individual Achievement for Voice Acting in an Animated Television Production (Nominated) 1999 Emmy Awards - Outstanding Animated Program (For Programming One Hour or Less) (Nominated)More DetailsTheme Lyrics:Main Theme(Narration) Sugar, Spice, and everything NiceThese are the ingredients to the perfect little girl.But Professor Utonium accidentally added one ingredient to the concoction: Chemical XEXPLOSIONThus, the Powerpuff Girls were born.

    Notes (576)

    • When this short was included on the 2001 Powerpuff Girls DVD, "The Mane Event", the word "ass" was bleeped out and censored by symbols (except in the end credits) when the word appeared on screen. On the season one and complete series DVD releases, the short is in it's original, unaltered format, most likely because the original audience were teenagers and adults by then.

    • The animation wasn't in high quality like it usually is.

    • The Whoopass Girls were all voiced by the same person, as stated by the episode's end credits.

    • Character Debut(s): The Amoeba Boys & The Whoopass Girls (later known as The Powerpuff Girls).

    • Villain(s): The Amoeba Boys.

    • This episode is only 2 minutes long.

    • Villain(s): The Amoeba Boys.

    Trivia (483)

    • The Amoeba Boys commit a crime well in this short, yet in later episodes, they're too dumb to commit even a simple crime.

    • The policeman was only holding one handcuff, so how were all three Girls being dragged away when the most he could've captured is two? And why didn't the Girls break out of those cuffs? They're stronger than that.

    • Everything that was meat came back to normal. But how come the Mayor was still meat?

    • The narrator was done by the late Ernie Anderson, who was the original announcer of America's Funniest Home Videos hosted by Bob Sagat.

    • When Fuzzy fires at Bubbles, they she shouted "HEY," but that was Blossom's voice you heard, not Bubbles.

    • In "Mommy Fearest", the Professor's eyes disappear when he says "It's time for-" before getting cut off by Ima Goodlady/Sedusa.

    • In "Mommy Fearest," Bubbles' mouth does not move the first time she says, "Duh!"

    • When Ima comes to move into the Powerpuff residence, she doesn't bring anything - no luggage, no bags, no crates, no nothing. However, the next day she is fully equipped with a couple of new outfits.
