  • bad episode, do not watch this if you have serious tourettes.

    one day i saw this episode, i feel so damn mad i can argue with a police man, and trying to get into a fight with that guy. i can almost punch a stone wall, and getting into trouble lately! for the reason of OCD, ADHD, and tourettes syndromes, this episode should be BANNED because of animal abuse! tell that to the news ( wpri, abc, NBC, CNN, CBS, BBC, and all OTHER news that the episodes too offensive for me, and the audience!)

    i have autism you know. for any episodes in shows that i find offensive, i'll scream!moreless
  • Not the best.

    This was not the best episode of The Powerpuff Girls, because it was mostly just a filler. And lately most of Season 3 has been a bit of a dissapointment.

    Getting Twiggy With It: I know how the writers are trying to be more creative and all. I get it, I really do, but it just seems like the whole plot was forced. So what, a jerk tortures a hamster, and the hamster ends up torturing him. Cop Out: They seem like this show is getting to be less of The Power Puff Girls, and more of the minor characters, and that to me is just plain annoying.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (14)

    • It is rather ironic that Brickowski would be jealous of the Girls' attention since he doesn't do anything.

    • Apparently, acid does not hurt the Girls since the Girls came out unharmed when a cop finally got them out of the tub of acid.

    • As Mike Brickowski threw the TV out of his window, it smashed the bit of the window, but when we cut to Mike at the window, the whole window is gone and both sides of the wall have been demolished.

    • In "Cop Out," during Mike's visit to 3 different stores, if you watch carefully at the car's license plate number, it changed into a different number.

    • In "Getting Twiggy With It," Mitch said to the Girls that he hasn't got any pets, but he has a snake in his bedroom.

    • In "Cop Out," in the shot where the Girls are in the tub of acid, they screamed, but none of their mouths moved.

    • In "Cop Out," as the crane lowered the Girls down to the acid, they screamed. But listen carefully when the Girls are being burned from the acid, you can hear the scream which was already heard before.

    • In "Cop Out," why didn't Perez or the other cops ask Mike Brickowski what button to press to stops the crane?

    • When the Girls come out of the acid, they are all burned up and missing hair. The next scene shows no sign of injury whatsoever.

    • When Twiggy first came out of the toxic barrel, her paw was black, but it changes color after her new form is shown.

    • In "Cop Out," before Mike Brickowski grabs his doughnut, as the doughnut has been made, it hasn't been toppled with chocolate. But when the doughnut girl hands it out of the window, it has been toppled, and in the shot where Mike is at his desk, the chocolate topping is gone.

    • In "Cop Out," when Mike Brickowski with his doughnut went to the Chief's office, as he sat down, the doughnut hasn't been eaten. But if you look closely in the next shot, when the Chief opens the blinds, it has been eaten, and when Mike gave the Chief his doughnut, it once again hasn't been eaten.

    • Ms. Keane trusts Mitch to take care of Twiggy rather than the girls?

    • In "Cop Out," when Mike threw the TV out the window, it was still working before it crashed on the ground.

  • QUOTES (15)

    • Brickowski: You... want my badge?
      Chief: Did I stutter? Now hand it over!
      (Brickowski hands over badge)
      Chief: Good, your sunglasses.
      (Brickowski hands over sunglasses, tries to hand over his gun)
      Chief: No, no. You can keep that, a little souvenir for you. That doughnut's looking good, though.
      (Brickowski hands over doughnut)
      Chief: Oh, yeah!

    • Brickowski: Hey, I know what this is all about, it's those Powerpuff Girls fault. They do all the work and they gotta make cutbacks, so you're laying off good old Brickowski. WELL, I THINK THAT STINKS!!! (punches a picture frame on the wall and slams the door)
      Chief: Son of a gun.

    • Blossom: Huh, isn't this from a birthday party adventure?
      Buttercup: It doesn't look familiar.
      Bubbles: Yeah, that's when we sang our song: "Love, Love, Love Makes the World Go Round".

    • Brickowski: Starting tomorrow, you girls are not gonna be on the air. NO MORE!

    • Perez: Chief, this is Perez. That is a good hunch, he's definitely up to something.

    • Brickowski: Ohhh! They're good when they're hot.
      Chief: BRICKOWSKI!!! My office, now!
      Brickowski: Dong! Promotion time!

    • Brickowski: First hot donut of the day. You know, I'm up for a promotion any day now, but those girls keep stealing my spotlight. But today's my day, Perez, you'll see.

    • Perez: Hey, partner, you missed it. There was a robbery and the Powerpuff Girls--
      Brickowski: Powerpuff Girls? Hey, let me tell you something, Perez. Those girls are lousy good-for-nothings.

    • Female Reporter: Hey, Chief, was it a tough fight today?
      Chief: Not at all, thanks to those Powerpuff Girls.

    • Mike Brickowski: Hey, man!
      Chief: Don't man me, sit down.
      Mike Brickowski: So what's up, Chief?
      Chief: You're fired, Brickowski, I want you out of here immediately.
      Mike Brickowski: (laughs) Chief, you crack me up.

    • Chief: Sorry about that, girls. Are you already?
      Blossom: What you know, I guess acid can't hurt us.

    • Narrator: Enjoy your ride whether it lasts, Officer Bricowski, 'cause you're in for a rude awaking.

    • Buttercup: Enough pictures already!
      Blossom: How you guys get here so fast anyway?

    • Narrator: The City of Townsville loves its police force, a group of hard working men and women doing their best to keep Townsville safe.

    • Mike Brickowski: So ends the life of a good cop gone bad.
      Blossom: You're not a good cop gone bad! You're a bad cop gone worse!

  • NOTES (7)


    • Pink Floyd - The Wall
      The scene where Mike Brikowski throws the TV out the window and then breaks when it hits the ground, may be a reference to the 1982 film 'The Wall' where Pink (Bob Geldof) throws the TV out of his hotel window and breaking when it hits the ground.

      This is a reference to the famous Weird Al Yankovic song, "Attack of the Radioactive Hamsters From A Planet Near Mars".

      It has the exact name of an episode in Pokemon Diamond and Pearl.

    • Episode Title: Gettin' Twiggy With It
