Episode Summary

Silent Treatment: The Professor tries to teach the Girls all about the history of silent movies and how they're much better than the movies of today by taking them to one. The Girls are quickly bored, but are forced to go into the movie to save the Professor who has been kidnapped by the villain.

Sweet 'N Sour: A new group of criminals, which is a group of cute little animals, robs Townsville blind. The Girls try to stop them, but because of their innocent looks, the animal criminals have the advantage. The Powerpuff Girls quickly, though, figure out a way to put an end to their crime streak.moreless

      • In "Silent Treatment," as the Girls entered the movie, keep your eye on the mouse hole behind them, it's between Buttercup and Blossom. But after Buttercup speaks her silent title, it's at the end where Bubbles is, and so on it switches in some of the shots later.

      • In "Silent Treatment," when the Girls stack up to get to the payphone, Blossom seems to hop onto Bubbles' shoulders, but when the camera closes in on Blossom, she's standing on Bubbles' head.

      • In "Silent Treatment," when the Girls come out of the theater screen, Blossom says they got their color back, although they had color already while everything else was black/white.

      • In "Silent Treatment," when the police car picks up the girls to pursue Mr. Moustache, it passes so quickly that they have to form a chain in order to get onto it. Buttercup holds the rear of the car, with Bubbles behind her and Blossom at the end of the chain. However, when the police car turns, Blossom and Bubbles somehow switch positions in the chain, with the latter now at the end.
