Episode Summary

Just Another Manic Mojo: A beautiful day in Townsville is a bad day for a people-hater like Mojo. But things start to look up when the Powerpuff Girls accidentally send their baseball through Mojo's window. While trying to aim the Giganto Destructo Powerpuffo Ray at the Girls, Mojo is forced to engage in a game of hide-and-seek. Looking for their ball, the Girls destroy Mojo's lab, except for the all-important ray. Mojo aims and locks the ray, only to discover Bubbles is about to touch his favorite possession: the Ming vase, stolen during the very first crime he committed. Of course, Mojo ends up in the line of fire.

Mime for a Change: A horrible accident involving a truck full of bleach turns birthday party entertainer Rainbow the Clown into a black-and-white mime with the ability to leave everyone and everything in his path gray and lifeless. Bubbles points out the danger of a world without color, and Buttercup and Blossom discover a trail of black-and-white footprints that lead them to the culprit. Bubbles finally finds a way to bring color back to the town: song. Bubbles on drums, Buttercup on bass and Blossom on guitar sing "Love Makes the World Go 'Round," and everyone, even Rainbow, is back to normal.moreless

  • Love Makes the World go Round is so brilliant, this sort of music is the one that brings music to your ears. with the whole city all pitch black and pure white but thanks to Bubbles who saved them all with the sweet sound of music. Song andmoreless

    Lu Lu Lu Lu Love, Makes the world go round.

    Open your ears and listen to the music from the girls.

    I love this episode, I love the song and the whole colourful City.

    I think this song should be No 1 in the charts and it brought music to our ears.
  • "Mime for a Change" is without a doubt one of the best episodes of the series.

    As a Powerpuff Girls fan, I find that "Just Another Manic Mojo", even though it is one of the most classic episodes of the series, I don't find it very interesting. I am a lot more interested in the second episode, "Mime for a Change". There were a couple of sad parts about this episode, such as Rainbow the Clown becoming a black and white baddy and draining out the sound and color of the world and seeing Bubbles as the only colorful noisy thing in the world. What ticks me off about this episode is the villain's name: Mr. Mime. I really think they were ripping off Pokemon with that! What I like the most about this episode is when the girls become a rock band and perform that song, "Love Makes the World Go 'Round"! That to me is one of the greatest musical moments in cartoon history! It kind of sucked that the girls didn't perform again in the series, even though Bubbles did mention this episode in a later episode. Overall, "Mime for a Change", is indeed one of the best episodes of the series, and I highly reccomend it; it's a real pleaser.moreless
  • Very well done.

    Just Another Manic Mojo: Looks like the writers love to get creative with The Powerpuff Girls now, which is amazing, I love how they twists the plots, and sometimes, the episode can be about nothing and they really work it out great. Like on this episode, basically all it was, was the girls throwing their ball at Mojo's tower, which made him crazy. And it was very entertaining. Mime For A Change: Would have to be one of my favorite shorts, probably cause clowns freak me out, also mimes, so when I was small it freaked me out. I love the song the girls sang in the end. Great!moreless
