Mayhem ensues upon the girls' attempt to stop the medium from escaping.Octi-Gone: Professor Utonium is hosting a party for all the rich and famous people in Townsville, so Bubbles makes sure that she is the most beautiful of the Girls by continually grooming herself. While doing this, she notices one of Octi's legs poking out from under the Girls' bed, so she goes to pick him up to find that all that's there is one of Octi's legs! After waking up from the shock, she vows to exact revenge on the person who "killed" Octi.

  • Seriously?!

    2.5
    Pretty downright lame since the PPG were unable to beat some generic fortune-teller thief and her inexplicably human-sized goose (They say it's a goose in the show) in less than 11 minutes when they have punched out Mojo Jojo more easily. Also the narrator in this one particular case would not shut up, I get it makes fun of radio shows, but that only works when you have no picture! And even with the case that it makes fun of old shows like Underdog, even the narrator in that didn't talk so much, nor does it work too well with the PPG at this point.moreless
  • This episode is annoying...unless they planned it.

    3.5
    The narrator is, although I adored him in earlier episodes, really annoying! Madame Argentina sucks, and the narrator kept NARRATING everything, killing any action-if there was any, in the episode. The jokes were also flat and stale, and the colors looked like they were on drugs, pre-Johnny Test. Normally I'd adore the Powerpuff Girls, and think they're cute, but here, they've mutated from cute girls to annoying pests, and the fact Bellum wasn't in it but once in a drug-reminiscent pickle ad, kills this episode. Plus, the duck was a lame excuse for a sidekick and the Mayor gave me a headache.



    The second half was equally annoying, and made Bubbles' obsession with Octi go WAY too far. She blamed nearly everyone at the damn party, and made her seem like a psycho nutjob. Everyone gasping at the 'crime', made me gasp myself-at the horror the episode bought. Plus, they snuck in a poo joke, which I thought they were too mature for, as well as making Mojo look like a dweeb. Contaminated? They didn't tell us that until late in the episode.



    And once again, the legacy is ruined, thanks to CHRIS SAVINO!!!

  • This was a hilarious episode. Both stories where very good.

    10
    I See a Funny Cartoon in Your Future: I enjoyed watching 'Rocky and Bullwinkle' in the golden days of Cartoon Network and I also loved 'Sheep in the Big City' which was a hilarious parody of it. This episode was a good parody of 'Rocky and Bullwinkle' and it wasn't much like Sheep which I'm glad. This was another episode where they made the Mayor hilarious. I loved how he kept trying to say something faster then something happened whenever the Narrator said it happened faster then you could say it. The fake commercial was pretty funny too.



    Octi-Gone: This episode was cute and they did a good job making it mysterious. I'm sure it was impossible for anyone who saw this to guess who it was who destroyed Octi (no I'm not going to spoil it.) I thought the ending was hilarious because of what happened to Mojo Jojo.moreless
  • No wonder I miss the show!

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (11)

    • In "Octi Gone", the Girls' party dresses looked more like girlier versions of their normal dresses.

    • After Professor Utonium tried to put the leg back on, Bubbles said he'd got the leg in backwards, but it wasn't as it was first received, until Bubbles switched the leg right round.

    • In some shots, the flower on the Professor switches form his left side to his right side.

    • After the Professor puts the leg back on Octi, it suddenly smiled. Is Octi an alive toy?

    • As Mojo ate the slice of the banana cream pie, look in the shot when the catering man warns about the pie. It's back to a whole new pie.

    • "Octi-Gone" - When Bubbles is on the phone, she has Octi with her, but in the next shot, it disappeared.

    • The Mayor has some indications on being a pickle addict because Ms. Bellum has given the Mayor a pickle patch.

    • Buttercup said in "Octi-Gone" that she hates her party dress, but in "Slumbering with the Enemy," she, Blossom, and Bubbles were wearing all types of clothes along with Mojo.

    • Wouldn't something else have happened to the Girls after they were freed, despite the fact that voodoo dolls cause something to happen to whoever they are dolls of, depending on what the cause is?

    • When the Girls were in the trench coat, Bubbles was wearing a fake moustache, but after Fred discovers Buttercup and scares the Girls, her moustache just disappears out of thin air.

    • At the end of the episode, the Narrator says that the newspapers said, "It's Rare to See a Medium So Well Done," but the headline shown really said, "That Well Done."

  • QUOTES (30)

    • Bubbles: Mojo, you get outta there, you're nothing but a big party pooper.

    • Bubbles: WHO IS THIS?!?!
      Mojo Jojo: I told you, I'm holding Octi for a 1,000 gallons of Chemical X.
      Bubbles: Oh, really, now? (Professor begs her to carry on) So can you describe him for me?

    • Bubbles: It's gotta be Buttercup, who else could it be? (Blossom winks, Bubbles gasped) Not Blossom, it couldn't be her, or COULD IT?!

    • Bubbles: (Crying) OH, HO, HO! Octi, I'm gonna find out WHOEVER DID THIS TO DO AND THEY WILL PAY!!!

    • Narrator: The city of Townsville, where all the who's who of the city's most fru-fru are preparing for the big to-do at the home of Townsville's very own Professor U.

    • Narrator: And the Mayor was let back into Townsville faster than you could say, "open sesame."
      Mayor: Open sesa -
      Powerpuff Girls: Here you go, Mayor.
      Mayor: Shoot!

    • Mayor: You were right, Ms. Bellum. The pickle patch is great! Especially on cold turkey sandwiches.
      Ms. Bellum: Oh, Mayor.

    • Buttercup: Wait! Wait! Wait! Let me get this straight. You asked a psychic for decisions on municipal issues?
      Mayor: No, no, of course not. That would be silly. I got advice from a dead relative.

    • Madame Argentina: Please sit. I have been expecting you.
      Mayor: Wow! You are good!

    • Narrator: Oh, no! It's the Mayor of Townsville -- the one person who should have read the newspaper today, but didn't.

    • Narrator: The city of Townsville, where it's a petty world out there and petty crime is at an all-time high. Which leads us to the question of who, who could be picking the pockets of the unsuspecting citizens of Townsville?
      Madame Argentina: Why, me, of course.
      Narrator: Who said that?
      Madame Argentina: Down here. (Waves hand)

    • Narrator: And with that, the Girls were off... faster than you could say "Professor Utonium."
      Mayor: Professor Uton -
      Powerpuff Girls: We're here, Mayor!
      Mayor: Well, I'll be. I couldn't finish saying it.

    • Narrator: Regardless of how the Mayor handles his civic duties, the Girls still had a job to do. And with that, they were off... faster than you could say "bad television."
      Mayor: Bad televi -
      Powerpuff Girls: Later, Mayor!
      Mayor: Darn it!

    • Blossom: Look what I found!
      Bubbles & Buttercup: What is it?
      Blossom: A tarot card. Girls, this is worse than we imagined.
      Bubbles: Whatever do you mean, Blossom?
      Blossom: Not only are we dealing with a petty criminal, we're dealing with... a tarot-ist!

    • (The Girls are about to start an attempt to capture Madame Argentina)
      Blossom: You ready, Buttercup?
      Buttercup: Check.
      Blossom: Ready, Bubbles?
      Bubbles: Ready. (Clears her throat, in a deeper voice) Ready.
      Blossom: Great. Let's put Operation Over-Medium into action.

    • Narrator: But when Fred stuck his head in the pocket, he didn't find a wallet, nor did he find jewelry. He found a Buttercup!

    • Blossom: Look! There she is!
      Bubbles: And she's got dolls of us!
      Buttercup: And a box of pins!
      Blossom: What in the world would she want those things for?
      Narrator: And with the first poke of the pin, the Girls quickly got the point.

    • Narrator: And the newspapers this day read, "Powerpuffs Powerless to Pinch Pocket-Picking Pin-Pushing Predictor!" Will the Girls ever escape this literal cliffhanger? Will the Mayor ever get back into Townsville? Will Madame Argentina ever share her gumdrops?

    • Narrator: For these are but a few of Townsville's citizens who've been robbed by this elusive and rather vertically-challenged psychic, which is why the newspapers this day read, "Small Medium at Large!"

    • Madame Argentina: I am sensing presence of a dead relative.
      Mayor: Yes! Yes, I do have dead relatives!
      Madame Argentina: A dead…aunt?
      Mayor: Yes! Yes! I have one of those! Uncanny.
      Madame Argentina: Yes! It is your dead aunt coming through. Aunt... buh... cuh... duh... fuh... Ger...
      Mayor: Gertrude? My dead Aunt Gertrude?
      Madame Argentina: That's the one.
      Mayor: She wants to speak to me? (Speaking upward) How you doing, Gert?

    • Blossom: And you've been locked out since Wednesday? But, Mayor, it's Saturday. Why did you wait so long to call?
      Mayor: My cell phone calling plan has free weekend minutes.

    • Narrator: And the newspapers read this day... "It's Rare to See a Medium So Well Done."

    • (Mayor gasps)
      Ms. Bellum: Mayor, we're done gasping.

    • Madame Argentina: A good medium never reveals her secrets.
      Mayor: I thought that was a musician.
      Madame Argentina: Whatever. $10, please.

    • Narrator: And as Madame Argentina plied her false fortunes, the goose got down.
      Fred: Is that a feather joke?

    • Blossom: Mmm-mmm! I sure love barbecue goose!
      Buttercup: Yeah! Me, too!
      Bubbles: Save the neck for me!

    • Bubbles: (Singing) D'oh! In my tailbone!

    • Madame Argentina: Would you like your palms read?
      Bubbles: Oh, no, thanks. I like them the color they are.

    • Buttercup: Bubbles! Put down that stupid octopus and help us with this stupid octopus!

    • Madame Argentina: Oh, good day, kind sir. I've been expecting you.
      Bubbles: (In a tall uniform) Wow, she is good.
      Blossom: (From inside coat) Shhh!
      Bubbles: (Whispering) Sorry.

  • NOTES (10)

  • ALLUSIONS (4)

    • Don't Scrye for Me Argentina: Title
      "Don't Scrye for Me, Argentina" is a spoof off of the title of the song, "Don't Cry for Me, Argentina."

    • Episode Title: Octi Gone
      This is a title pun/reference to the shape, octagon.

    • Narrator: The dolls were quickly put up for auction on eBay.
      Reference to eBay; a huge Internet auction site.

    • Jay Warden: Appearance
      The warden at the end of this ep is a white-moustachioed, bespectacled man, wearing a naval uniform that looks a bit like that worn by Cap'n Crunch; on his hat is a large J, and he wears a name badge that tags him as the Jay Warden. This is a reference to Jay Ward, a producer for Rocky & Bullwinkle.
