Jewel of the Aisle: A dumb crook hides a jewel in a cereal box. He searches all 3,000 of them, and when he's down to his last one, the Professor buys it for the girls. The crook tries to think up ways to get the jewel, and he almost succeeds, if he weren't so dumb.

Super Zeroes: After some inspiration from their favorite comics, Blossom, Bubbles, and Buttercup try to become better heroes. Instead, with their new identities they become super zeroes, and with some acknowlodging words from a monster, they decide that they were better heroes the way they were before.moreless

  • Better heroes, huh?! Well, who knows, maybe in the future those suits might come in handy, but right now, you really should just stick to your original deasing, girls... Awesome episode!moreless

    Okay, this was definitely one of the best episodes of the Powerpuff Girls. Not only we find out that the girls are fans of many comic book super heroes, but we also find out that they think people do not take them seriously, so they decide to come up with new identities, basing themselves on their comic book heroes. I really enjoyed seeing Blossom as Liberty Belle, Bubbles as Harmony Bunny and Buttercup as Mange, because they were really cool. Too bad they never got the chance to prove that they also could defeat monsters and protect Townsville under those identitites. The humour is also one of the many reasons why I like this episode so much... it's hillarious to see Blossom stuck on traffic (I bet that never happens to Batman), or seeing the monster telling them that they do not need new identities to fight crime and that they should be themselves. 10 out of 10, my friends!moreless
  • Hilarious!!!!

    Jewel Of The Aisle: Definitely a step up from the other episodes. I was so happy to see a good episode of The Power Puff Girls, cause for a second there, I thought they were losing their touch, anyways this episode, is when a robber dresses up as a cereal guy, and the girls practically torture him without knowing that he was the robber all along.



    Super Zeroes: A very hilarious episode that makes this episode twice as better, I loved every second of it, I was laughing through the whole thing. I like how the girls went there own way and everything. Most hilarious is when Blossom was stuck in traffic!moreless
  • This episode was dam funny!

    Jewel of the Aisle and Super Zeros were very funny episodes that I personally enjoyed.



    In Jewel of the Aisle, a stupid thief disguises himself as a bunny (looks like the bunny from Trix cereal) to get the jewel he found back. His attempts were so funny but the last part, he was so foolish to let off his mask. This was a very funny episode.



    But, Super Zeros was even funnier. The girls think they aren\'t good superheros so they make up their own costumes of their favourite heros. Bubbles as a japanese bunny, Buttercup as some hero thats afraid of the night and Blossom as Liberty Gal. The professor seemed irritated but he was supposed to be! The girls weren\'t acting themselves. It was the first time a monster talked and he reasoned with the girls and they became the PPG\'s again.



    So overall, this is a must-see episode as it is so funny.moreless

    • Professor Utonium: Well? Are you going?
      Buttercup: (as Mange) Ah-ah, too bright. Mange only travels at night.

    • Blossom: Okay, then, meet Townsville's heroes, Liberty Belle.
      (black smoke comes out and down the stairs and it stops)
      Buttercup: Mange!
      Bubbles: And don't forget... (white flash zooms through the hall) ...Harmony Bunny!
      Blossom: And we are...
      Professor: ...too late. (puts phone down) Better heroes, huh?

    • Blossom: Ridiculous Captain Lucky Rabbit King!

    • Blossom: Bunny-Bunny isn't even a superhero. At least Freedom Gal stops bad guys.
      Buttercup: Yeah, and Spore has scabs that never heal.
      Bubbles: Bunny-Bunny could heal them.
      Blossom: No, she couldn't. She's not a hero!
      Buttercup: And they never heal!

    • Narrator: So, once again, the day is saved... with no thanks to Liberty Belle, Harmony Bunny, or Mange... but to the one and only Powerpuff Girls!

    • Bubbles: Harmony Bunny is not slow, for it's hop hop hop, and away I go!

    • Buttercup: You may be able to run.
      Bubbles: You may be able to hide.
      Blossom: We will meet again.
      Narrator: Have the Powerpuff Girls actually failed to catch a thief? Is this crook that cunning? That agile? Is this man a true master of thievery?

    • Steve: Look, girls, my name is Steve. I'm a monster. I've been consistently destroying this town for three days, expecting to fight the Powerpuff Girls, and what do I find? Two days of no shows, and now this: a flag girl who does rope tricks, some rabbit, and little-miss-darkness who's afraid of a little sun.

    • Girls: Ridiculous Lucky Captain Rabbit King. Lucky Captain Rabbit King Nuggets are for the youth!

    • Bubbles: Gee, Grandma Babysitter, what big eyes you have.
      Jewel Thief: All the better to see this cereal.
      Buttercup: Gee, Grandma Babysitter, what an interesting moustache you have.
      Jewel Thief: All the better to keep this cereal in my mouth.
      Blossom: Gee, Grandma Babysitter, you sure do have big rabbit ears.
      Jewel Thief: ... All the better to ...

    • Bubbles: Santa, are you crazy? It's summer!

    • Blossom: Stupid, unlucky, captured robber dude. Jail is for you.

    • Professor Utonium: Powerpuff hotline.
      Mayor: Oh, this is terrible! Terrible!
      Professor Utonium: Well, Mr. Terrible, I'm sorry, but this line is reserved for -
      Mayor: No, no, no! This is the Mayor! I need the girls immediately!
      Professor Utonium: (Laughing) Sorry, Mayor. See, I thought you were -
      (The Mayor screams over the line)
      Professor Utonium: Sorry. Hold on, Mayor.

    • Buttercup: Shhh!
      Blossom: Watching...
      Bubbles: TV.

    • Narrator: And so once again, the day is saved, thanks to green Buttercups, blue Bubbles', and pink Blossoms! The Powerpuff Girls! Part of this complete breakfast.

    • Blossom: Whatcha got there, Rabbit?

  • NOTES (9)

  • ALLUSIONS (8)

    • Blossom: "Another one bites the dust!"
      A title of a 1980 song by rock band 'Queen'.

    • Blossom: For when the Liberty Belle tolls, it tolls for thee!

      Blossom's obsession with being a classic super heroine in this episode bears a striking resemblance to Momoko, her counterpart's personality in the future PPG's Japanese anime spin-off, Powerpuff Girls Z. Momoko loved super heroines and loves saying nonsensical lines just because they sound heroic.

    • TV Show: Mecha-Nales
      The TV show that the girls were watching called "Mecha-Nales" is a spoof name out of Beast Machines, the sequel to Beast Wars.

    • Parodies
      Freedom Gal and Spore are parodies of Wonder Woman and Spawn. Bunny-Bunny is not a superhero (or superheroine), but she seems to be based on Hello Kitty.

    • Bubbles: When danger comes, I am not slow, for it's hop, hop, hop, and away I go!
      This little catchphrase that Bubbles says was inspired by a catchprase of Underdog's.

    • Monster: Hedorah
      The monster, Steve from "Super Zeroes," is based on Hedorah, the pollution-spawned antagonist from 1971's Godzilla vs. Hedorah (AKA: Godzilla vs. The Smog Monster).

    • Mange: Character
      "Mange," the character who Buttercup becomes, is probably a parody of the McFarlane Productions anti-hero, Spawn.

    • Powerpuff Girls: Ridiculous Lucky Captain Rabbit King! Lucky Captain Rabbit King Nuggets are for the youth!
      This is an obvious reference to the Trix commercial line, "Silly rabbit, Trix are for kids!" As a side note, Lucky Captain Rabbit King's name comes from four different cereal mascots: Lucky the Leprechaun (from Lucky Charms), Cap'n Crunch, the Trix Rabbit, and King Vitaman.
