  • An important lesson in equality.

    Equal Fights shows how easily girls can be brainwashed by man-haters like Femme Fatale.

    All girls should watch this episode and learn what true equality is!

    There really are women like Femme Fatale out there. They may not be super villains, but they are doing evil things under the guise of feminism.

    Men and women should be treated as equals. Neither one is superior to the other.

    More shows should spread this message, instead of that PC "women are perfect and men suck" crap!moreless
  • Female Fatal.

    The Headsucker's Moxy: This wasn't a great short for the Power Puff Girls, it was so dry and sort of boring, sort of a filler actually, so it brought the rating for the episode down.

    Equal Fights: A definite ten, seriously I love female villains. I loved this short because it was funny, and the girls talk about history so that was quite enjoyable. I like how the girls were mad at the villain and one of the girls was like "She stole my hairstyle" That was hilarious, probably the best line of the episode.

    The first one brought the rating down. But overall great.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (4)

    • Femme Fatale and the Girls imply that Wonder Woman is the only superheroine of her own right, while Batgirl and Supergirl are just sidekicks. But there are in fact several superheroines of their own right. In both DC and Marvel Comics.

    • The girls realized that Wonder Woman is the only main super heroine while Supergirl and Batgirl are just sidekicks, but they forgot about Zatanna, Black Canary, Starfire, Raven, Hawkgirl, Huntress, Black Cat, Ms. Marvel, She-Hulk, Sailor Moon, Fire, Ice, Vixen, Stargirl, Dr. Light, Crimson Fox, and Gypsy.

    • When Femme Fatale slapped the construction worker, her handprint was facing backwards (from back to front instead of the other way).

    • Blossom calls Buttercup "butterfingers," and when Buttercup punched Femme Fatale there were scratch marks on her face.

  • QUOTES (8)

    • Mayor: Quick, Buttercup! Hide me! Hide me!
      Buttercup: What's gotten into you?
      Blossom: Are you okay?
      Mayor: No! I'm not okay! I'm in grave danger!
      Bubbles: Danger? But, why?
      Mayor: Cuz I'm the one! I'm the next victim! All of the most secretest secrets of Townsville are locked up here in my noodle!
      Blossom: Oh, Mayor. Your noodle is as empt-Wait! I think you're right! You are the next victim!
      Bubbles & Buttercup: What?
      (As Blossom talks, they quickly notice that the robbing leech is nearby, eavesdropping)
      Blossom: (sarcastically) Girls, we need to protect the Mayor, so none of the volumes pof information fall into the hands of the robbing leech. Understand?
      (Buttercup and Bubbles nod. The robbing leech leaves)
      Blossom: Don't worry, Mayor. We'll protect you
      Mayor: From what?

    • Blossom: And that's exactly what we're gonna do to you!

    • Blossom: Well, Moxy, looks like your brain-draining days are over.
      Buttercup: You're all dried up.

    • Narrator: Once again, the day is saved, thanks to the Powerpuff Girls! Hey, do we know if there are any chick narrators? (thud) OW! Hey, who threw that?

    • Ms. Bellum: Listen, girls. You're right about one thing. There is injustice in the world.
      Ms. Keane: That's why we have you, to protect the rights of everyone.

    • Mayor: There's this crazy tomato stealing all the Susan B. Anthony coins from the mint!

    • Teenage Girl: Did she think about me when she stole my hairstyle?!

    • Mayor: Girls! Man, oh, man, you shoulda seen it! This guy, he came out and grabbed the Sultan, and he spun him all around, and then he jumped on his head, and he started sucking on his skull, and the Sultan was all screaming and stuff, and then BAM! The Sultan fell down and the little guy walks over and squeezes his stomach, and WHOOT! Out comes this jewel thingy, and then he ran away! Aw, and you missed it, you missed it, man, it was COOL!

  • NOTES (4)


    • Episode Title: The Headsuckers Moxy
      The title "The Headsuckers Moxy" is a play on the title of the 1994 Joel and Ethan Coen film, The Hudsucker Proxy.

    • Bubbles: Holy headaches, Blossom!
      This is an obvious reference to a recurring line from the old live-action Batman TV series (with Adam West as Batman), where Batman would make some revelation and Robin would go "Holy (insert pun here), Batman!"
