    Cartoon Network (ended 2005)
    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.

    Characters:

    Blossom - According to the closing credits' theme song, Blossom is "commander and the leader" of the Powerpuff Girls. 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.

    Dial M For Monkey is the hilarious cartoon spinoff of Dexter's Laboratory. The shorts follow Dexter's lab monkey, Monkey (Frank Welker), who is actually a superhero. In certain Dexter's Laboratory episodes, the middle segment would either be a Dial M For Monkey episode or a Justice Friends episode. These segments would often cross over into one another, creating a pretty hilarious universe of characters. During his adventures, Monkey is forced to confront many dangerous enemies. With the help of trusted special agent Honeydew, Monkey faced-off against Huntor, the self-described "ultimate cosmic hunter;" Magmanamus, a grumpy lava creature; Orgon Grindor, a musician with an evil streak; Rasslor, the intergalactic wrestling champ; Barbequor, a hungry deity looking to devour earth; and Peltra, a female foe dead set on skinning Monkey for his precious fur. Dial M For Monkey got its title in part from Alfred Hitchcock's Dial M For Murder and DC Comics' Dial H for Hero.moreless

(TV1) About the U.S. Broadcasts Tenchi first debuted on US Television as part of Cartoon Network's Toonami block on 7pm ET, where it was somewhat edited. Then in 2003, International Channel (now AZN TV) broadcast the unedited entire seasons 1-3 and the movies on Friday nights 8pm PT/11pm ET. Although AZN no longer shows Tenchi Muyo, they occasionally tease their anime audience with some of the more racy Tenchi movie clips. How can I watch the series?: Tenchi is currently not airing on any regular cable TV station, so your best bet to catch this series are places where you could rent movies and anime. If you do see it on cable, please post about it on the forums, especially if it shows up on AZN TV or Cartoon Network again. Spin-offs With so many Tenchi storylines, the producers even came up with these two Tenchi spin-offs: In Tenchi Muyo! GXP the perennially unlucky Seina Yamada finds himself recruited into the Galaxy Police Academy, where he faces not only space pirates, but girl trouble as crazy as Tenchi's! Aired in Spring-Summer 2002. In Pretty Sammy (aka Magical Project S), the smallest of the Tenchi Girls, Sasami, takes center stage as an Earth schoolgirl who is given the ability to transform into the magical girl Pretty Sammy. A fun parody of Magical Girl shows mixed with the usual Tenchi Muyo humor. OAV Aired in Spring 1995 and TV series in Fall 1996-Spring 1997. This will also house the Sasami Magical Girl Club series that aired in the mid 2000s. Manga: No Need for Tenchi and The All New Tenchi Muyo are loosely based on the first OAV continuity. Main Characters Tenchi Masaki - Thoughtful and hard-working, Tenchi used to be a normal teenager who lived a quiet life in the Okayama mountains with his father and grandfather. All that changed when a group of beautiful alien girls ended up living with him - not only are they extremely powerful and dangerous, but they all seem to have a crush on poor Tenchi! As the glue that binds the group together, Tenchi has formed close relationships with all of the girls, but to date he has yet to pick one over the others. Tenchi also has a connection to the Jurai royalty. Ryoko Hakubi - In the OAV, silver-haired Ryoko was a fearsome demon sealed in the Masaki Shrine 700 years ago, only to be accidentally released by Tenchi. In the TV series' she is a space pirate, but whatever her background, she is not someone to be trifled with. With the ability to fly, teleport and create energy blasts and weapons, Ryoko can hold her own in most battles, but the mere suggestion that she help out with the chores has her running for cover! Nonetheless, despite her self-centred attitude, there is one person she truly cares about: Tenchi. Ayeka Jurai - As the First Princess of Jurai, purple-haired Ayeka is well aware of the duties and responsibilities of her position, and attempts to act in a manner befitting her position- although the veneer of civilisation tends to slip whenever she gets upset! In both the OAV and TV series, she ends up stranded on Earth, and despite her initial reluctance to adapt to the situation, with Tenchi's help she manages to settle down and even enjoy herself. She also develops deeper feelings for Tenchi himself, and is constantly fighting with her old rival Ryoko over who should be the object of his affection. Sasami Jurai - As Ayeka's little sister, light-blue haired Sasami may be the youngest of the gang, but as it turns out, she is also the most practical- certainly you wouldn't want to trust anyone else to do the cooking! An innocent at heart, Sasami's trusting nature and ability to see the good in people has been known to win over even the most hostile enemy. Sasami seems to regard Tenchi as a big brother, often managing to sneak in a hug before Ryoko or Ayeka can get to him (much to their annoyance)! Washu Hakubi - The self-proclaimed number one scientific genius in the universe, red-haired Washu is a top mad scientist who loves nothing more than creating innovative (if sometimes explosive) new inventions in her extra-dimensional laboratory (connected to the Masaki house via the broom closet). Although she spends long periods alone in the lab, Washu manages to form friendships with the others, and has a soft spot for Tenchi in particular. Mihoshi Kuramitsu - Given her clumsiness and basic incompetence, it seems amazing that this blonde and tanned Mihoshi has made it to the rank of first-detective in the Galaxy Police (although in the OAV the fact that her grandfather is the GP Marshal might have something to do with it). Considered a walking disaster by her superiors, Mihoshi nonetheless somehow manages to complete her assignments through a mixture of optimism, determination and sheer luck. Despite her self-proclaimed dedication to her duty, Mihoshi can usually be found at Tenchi's house, napping, eating or just watching TV. Kiyone Makibi - Kiyone does not appear in the OAV continuity, but in the TV series she is a brilliant young GP officer with blue hair whose career took a dive the day she was assigned as Mihoshi's partner. Despite the fact that Mihoshi adores and looks up to her, Kiyone longs to be rid of her incompetent partner, whom she treats like an exasperating younger sibling. Although Kiyone currently serves as a resident officer on Earth, she is always on the lookout for a promotion- especially one that takes her far away from Mihoshi. Ryo-Ohki - As a cabbit (cat-rabbit combination), Ryo-Ohki may just look like a cute mascot pet, but there is far more to her than that- for she can also transform into a spaceship! Smart and affectionate, Ryo-Ohki technically belongs to Ryoko (except in Tenchi in Tokyo), but she is more often to be found with Sasami. In the various series, Ryo-Ohki has several other transformations, but one thing always remains the same- no matter what form she is in, she has an overwhelming love of carrots! Nobuyuki Masaki - Despite being Tenchi's father, Nobuyuki is in some respects less responsible than his son, especially when it comes to 'peeping' at the girls! A good person at heart, Nobuyuki has worked hard to raise his son ever since the death of his wife. Katsuhito Masaki - Tenchi's grandfather, Katsuhito is guardian of the Masaki shrine, and also an excellent swordsman. His calm nature and wealth of knowledge have led some to suspect that there may be more to him than meets the eye. Azaka and Kamidake - At first glance they seem to be a pair of talking logs, but in fact Azaka and Kamidake are Jurai guardians, charged with protecting Ayeka. Although they spend much of their time as gateposts, their knowledge and powers are nonetheless invaluable to the princess. Sakuya - Tenchi's ate in the Tokyo series. She befriends Tenchi but her past is somewhat mysterious.moreless
