Episode Summary

Paste Makes Waste / Ice Sore
Paste Makes Waste: Buttercup gets carried away with classroom taunts levied against paste-eating classmate Elmer Sglue, and lobs a super strength powered paste ball at him. When Ms. Keane demands an apology, Buttercup just can't come up with the words. But when Elmer eats a toxic fly along with some paste, the results are pretty sticky. He turns into a giant, bitter, paste monster. When the girls get stuck trying to resolve the problem, Buttercup must soothe the monster with those two little words ("I'm sorry"). Ice Sore: During a heat wave, Blossom discovers that she has a new power: ice breath. After a few heat-relieving tricks, Blossom swears off the cold stuff. Of course, only then is it revealed that the source of the heat is a great ball of fire, headed straight for Townsville. Blossom is conflicted about whether to keep her promise not to use her new power or to bag it and save Townsville. In the end, icy logic prevailed.moreless

  • The first segment was gross. The other was perfect.

    Yeah, that's right, it's disgusting. It was about a guy named "Elmer" turning into a glue monster. I was completely disgusted. I rate this episode half way to perfect. This episode was too disgusting to be perfect. 5/10

    Blossom having ice breath. Too bad this isn't seen until a later season. 10/10
  • Um...

    This was aweful. Paste Makes Waste was about Elmer turning into a giant glue monster and attacks the town. Lame. Ice Sore was about Blossom getting a new super power: ice breath. A meteor is heading towards the earth and Blossom stops it with her ice breath. They can do way better than this.

    Paste Makes Waste: Overall pretty lame, the glue monster, was just annoying. I think this is one of the educational episodes when you have to learn to say sorry, I sometimes wish this show wasn't so based on kids & the viewers are set to young girls. Pretty much of a stereotype if you ask me. Ice Sore: A perfect 10. I love Blossom, and I like how they incorporate new abilities for the Power Puff Girls, she stops the meteor which is quite impossible with ice, but she made it work out, I like how the other girls are jealous of Blossom. Great development!moreless
