  • Amazing to watch.

    I can't think which one is better.

    Bubblevision I think is the best out of those two.

    Favourite Bit: Bubbles turned deaf at the end, So hilarious.

    I can't believe Princess's Father brought Towsville for her to become Mayor to make crime legal until Smarty Blossom came up with a brillant idea
  • This is a great episode and I liked them both.

    Bubblevision-This is a great episode and it was funny too.I think Bubbles should be more happy about wearing glasses because some people need glasses to see.But she did look a little funny, but Bubbles did have a right not to like them.Blossom and Buttercup should of not laughed at her too much because even though she looked a little funny they should of at least gave Bubbles a break.

    Bought & Scold-Princess Morebucks buys Townsville and decides she will be the mayor of Townsville when the Powerpuff Girls find out Princess Morebucks has bought Townsville and put the mayor and Miss Bellum out of business they decide to take all of her stuff to make her take back what she took and ends up in trouble by her dad.The powerpuff Girls have put Miss Bellum and the mayor back in business.moreless
  • Second one was better.

    Bubblevision: O expected more from this episode, from the title I thought Bubbles was going to go all crazy and attack everyone again. But instead she just mopes around cause no one likes her glasses. Everyone makes fun of them. This short was exactly like The Mane Event except this time with glasses so this was a bit unoriginal. Bought And Scold: I really like this one (why it got such a high rating) because they show pictures of all the villains that were ever on the Power Puff Girls. That would of took a lot of work for just the first minute of the short. Anyways I was a bit scared for Princess, when his dad came out, implying he was going to hit her. OUCH!moreless
  • Classic

    This rating is for Bought and Scold. Princess Morebucks buys Townsville from the Mayor and makes crime legal. It's funny how the criminals just casually go through town robbing people with the decree in hand. The funniest part was the ending when Princess finds out that the girls were the ones who stole her stuff "legally". The best part was the narrator at the end saying "Man, I am never going to have kids!". LOL

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (6)

    • In "Bought and Scold," just as Princess notices her stuff is gone, in the next shot, she shouts, "My stuff!" But when she shouts "my," her mouth didn't move.

    • After Blossom said, "yeah, about just kidding," the next shot shows the Girls except Bubbles who flew into the city. But look closely, Buttercup's flash line looks blue instead of green.

    • If Bubbles hates her glasses, why did she carry them with her?

    • In "Bought and Scold," while Princess gets herself a glass of water, all the things she has have been stolen by the Girls (of course), but there wasn't a single sound or crash heard.

    • If crime was made legal, then the Powerpuff Girls (and anyone else) could stop people from committing crimes. A crime is breaking the law. So, if the law says crime is legal, then it would be legal to break that law and stop crimes, because you're committing a crime by stopping the crime, which is legal. It's rather surprising that thought didn't occur to anyone on the show.

    • In "Bubblevision," Bubbles' magnified laser beam completely destroys the giant ant, but the PPG remain okay, even though they're in the line of fire, too.

  • QUOTES (22)

    • Narrator: Now I know the Mayor's not the sharpest tool in the shed, but... CRIME LEGAL?

    • Blossom: Quick! Search for a weak spot.
      (ant stomps on Buttercup)
      Blossom: Buttercup! (pulls her free) It's no use, we've gotta find Bubbles.

    • Blossom: Princess, I want--
      Princess: You want?! You want?! What about what I want?! I wanted to be a Powerpuff Girl, but, NO! You wouldn't let me! So, then, I wanted to destroy you, but you always defeated me! Well, now, I am in charge! I am the mayor! I make the rules! And I say CRIME! IS! LEGAL! And if you try to stop ANYONE, I will throw you in jail! Now get out of my office!

    • Princess: OK! OK! Here's the key to the city and the Mayor's hat, now give me back the stuff, the stuff, HUURRRRY!!
      Blossom: We'll be right back. (Whizzes off)

    • Princess: No, wait, I need that stuff! I'll do anything for it! Please? Please?
      Blossom: Give back Townsville to the Mayor and Ms. Bellum.
      Princess: NEVER!!! (alarm goes off)

    • Princess Morbucks: (giggles nervously) Good morning, Daddy. I was just wondering how did all this stuff get out here, so you see it's those stinky Powerpuff Girls' fault! They only did that because I HATE THEM! (cries)

    • (Bubbles starts giggling)
      Bubbles: Oh, you can't arrest us.
      Blossom: Crime was legal when we robbed you, so technically...
      Buttercup: ...All your stuff is ours now, see ya.

    • Princess Morbucks: I WANT A GLASS OF WATER!!!! ON THE ROCK!!!! (mutters to herself)

    • Princess Morbucks: I'M READY FOR BED NOW!!!!!!

    • Blossom & Buttercup: BUBBLES, HELP!
      Bubbles: What, what? (screams)
      Blossom: Do something!
      Bubbles: Which one is it?
      Blossom: Use your glasses.
      Bubbles: No, I don't need them!
      Buttercup: You're missing...
      Blossom: ...Badly.
      Bubbles: I can get him. (trips over backwards)
      Blossom & Buttercup: USE YOUR GLASSES!!!
      Bubbles: NO! (ant stamps on her and tries to get free) OKAAAAAAY!!!!

    • Blossom: Bubbles.
      Bubbles: No.
      Blossom: Bubbles.
      Bubbles: I'm not listening.
      Buttercup: Bubbles, turn around.

    • Bubbles: I don't need these stupid glasses to be 100%. I can see just fine. (flies into tree) OW!
      Narrator: Oh, boy, without her glasses, Bubbles can't see the forest or the trees.

    • Blossom: This is awful! (sobs) Princess' new law makes us the bad guys.
      Bubbles: I'm not a bad girl; I'm a good girl, right?
      Buttercup: GOOD GUYS, BAD GUYS! It doesn't even matter! Princess won! We're out of business! Our crime fighting days are a BUST! Cause now, if we bust a law buster, we get busted.
      Bubbles: It's not fair. If we do good, we'll be bad. And we'll have to do bad if we wanna be good.

    • Professor Utonium: Honey?
      Blossom: Are you okay?
      Buttercup: I'm sorry, I'm sorry, I'm sorry.
      Bubbles: Hey, I can see! In fact, I can see better than ever! What happened, Professor?
      Professor Utonium: Well, as far I remember, Buttercup's blast to your eyes must have hit the exact spot causing some electron laser surgery. I must say, I'm very impressed. (gushing)
      Bubbles: What? What'd you say? I can't hear you.

    • Girls: MAYOR!
      Bubbles: How could you do this?!
      Blossom: Make crime legal.
      Buttercup: What were you thinking?
      Princess Morbucks: I'm thinking of putting you meanies OUT OF BUSINESS!!!

    • Blossom: Professor, there's something wrong with Bubbles.
      Bubbles: I'M FINE! There's nothing wrong with me! Don't make me COME OVER THERE!

    • Narrator: The city of Townsville! You may find it very peaceful here... as long as you ignore THE GIANT ANT!!!

    • Bubbles: I do look like a dork.
      Buttercup: No, you don't.
      Blossom: Yeah, you look like a ner -
      (Professor slaps her mouth shut)

    • Bubbles: I'm back!
      Blossom: What a sight for sore eyes!
      Buttercup: It's old four-eyes!
      Bubbles: Hey! You said you were just kidding!
      Blossom: We were!
      Buttercup: ... about being kidding!

    • Narrator: The city of Townsville! A locale inhabited by some of the most accursed, ill-conditioned, infernal, unprincipled, spineless, monster-ous, distasteful, felonious, gross, dark, naughty, foul, grave, miscreated, and spoiled lawbreakers to ever break laws! But fear not, fair city. For enforcing the law of the land are the pure, the proud, and the perfect Powerpuff Girls!

    • Princess Morbucks: (Waking up to find everything in the mansion stolen) Oh, no! Not all the things, and items, and possessions, and purchases!

    • Princess Morbucks: Just because I talked him into buying me Townsville, Daddy'll say it's all my fault!
      Bubbles: It is your fault.
      Princess Morbucks: That's not the point!
