  • Trivia

    • In "Town and Out", Him and the other villains could have taken over Townsville since the Girls weren't there to protect the people.

    • "Town and Out" - The Citysville Mayor said to the Girls that the crooks they caught stole $400, but there's definitely more than that with a handful of money out and in the bag.

    • In "Town and Out," before the Mayor of Citysville asks the Girls the bridge, the flag beside the desk has the stars and stripes on it, then it suddenly changed to white with the Citysville bridge on it. And in the final shot, it chages back to the stars and stripes.

    • When Buttercup pushes Mojo Jojo during the hide and seek game, she and Blossom's light switch.

    • In "Child Fearing," after Mojo gets hit by a police car, his helmet was left on the road. But in the next two shots, his helmet is back on again and his helmet has been damaged.

    • In "Child Fearing," during dinnertime some pieces of the Girls' dinner disappeared and re-appeared on their plates in some shots.

    • In "Child Fearing," at their dinnertime, Mojo gave the Girls two shrimps each. But when Bubbles ate one of the shrimps, one of the shrimps disappeared from her plate, and in the last shot, it's back on her plate.

    • "Child Fearing" - Blossom gave the Professor his hat and went out, but when he came into the house to call the babysister, his hat disappears.

    • In the shot of Mojo after slamming the Girls on the bed, look at his cloak, it's long (although it was ripped). But when he turned to his right, it's short.

    • The Girls ripped off part of Mojo's cloak to play Blind Man's Bluff, but in the shot when he'd shouted "I have had it," it's back on attached and it was gone when he slammed the Girls on their bed.

    • After the bridge is destroyed, the Powerpuff Girls walk to the other side of it to get home. Shouldn't Townsville be on the other side?

    • Since when do the Girls know history since they only go to Kindergarten?

    • When Mojo and the girls are playing Blind Man's Bluff, the first time the girls knock Mojo over and then fly away again, there is music and dialogue, but no sound effects.

    • What's a show like "Blarney the Singing Sea Serpent" doing on at a time like this? Isn't it like 8:30 at night or something?

      Editor's Note: It could have been a video.

    • In "Child Fearing," Bubbles and Buttercup were on the wrong sides of the bed.

    • In "Town and Out," how did the Professor leave Citysville when the bridge was destroyed?

      Reply: They took another bridge.

  • Quotes

    • Mojo Jojo: I have had enough games, forget taking over Townsville, just... please... go to... bed.
      Powerpuff Girls: TV TIME!!!!! YEAH!!!
      (they argue Mojo to let them watch TV until Mojo's head boils up)
      Mojo Jojo: AAALLL RRIIIIIIIIIIIIIGGGHHH!!!!!!!! Please, if this would make you shut up, watch TV.
      Powerpuff Girls: YAYYYY!!!!!
      Mojo Jojo: (Sitting on the armchair) Ahhh. peace and quiet. (falls asleep)

    • Professor: Bye, girls!
      Blossom: Oh, Professor?
      Professor: What?
      Blossom: Forgot your hat.
      Professor: Thanks, bye.

    • Professor: LATE! I'M LATE! Gotta hurry! Gotta hurry!

    • Mojo Jojo: (laughing and crying with joying cuffs) YEAH-HA-HA-HA! Free at last! YEAH-HA-HA-HA!

    • Mojo Jojo: (on the phone) HELLO!!! (crying) PLEASE SAVE MMMEEEE!!!
      : There he is!

    • Citysville Mayor: Let me tell you some words, at what point did it seem like a good idea to blow the Citysville bridge?
      Blossom: Uh.
      Citysville Mayor: NO! Do you realize the two crooks that you caught stole approximately $400? Did you realize that you did over $3,000,000 IN PROFIT DAMAGE FOR THAT BRIDGE?!?!?! IT'S NOT REPLACEABLE!!!

    • Mojo Jojo: Now, girls, prepare to have your taste buds delighted, for I, Mojo Jojo, are not only the #1 villain in Townsville, but I'm also... (Switches into his chef outfit) ... #1 chef in Townsville.

    • Mojo Jojo: ENNNNNOOOOOOUUUUUUUUUGGGGGGH!!!!!!!! I HAVE HAD IT!!!! IT'S!!! TIME!!! FOR!!! BEEED!!! (Phews) Finally, Mojo get peace.
      Buttercup: Where are you going?
      Bubbles: Are you gonna read us a story?
      Blossom: We can't sleep without a story.
      Buttercup: Yeah!
      Mojo Jojo: (Whimping) All right, but only if you GO to sleeeep.

    • Mayor: (Playing Zelda 64) That darn fairy!

    • Mojo Jojo: Very well, then. I will tell you my favorite story about the greatest conqueror who ever lived: Napoleon! He was a mighty man, feared by all who looked up to him. Using his genius and his loyal army, he conquered all of Europe, then all of Russia, and finally the whole world. The end.
      Blossom, Bubbles, & Buttercup: (Voice-over) BORING!!
      (Blossom jumps out of bed, holding her pillow)
      Blossom: Your story's all wrong! Napoleon's 1807 seizure of Portugal and the subsequent rebellion by the Spaniards cost France over 300,000 casualties, untold sums of money, and contributed to the eventual weakening of the Napoleonic empire! (Hits Mojo with the pillow, Bubbles jumps out of bed, carrying hers)
      Bubbles: And your analysis on the invasion of Russia is also incorrect! Napoleon's invasion of 1812 resulted in massive casualties of his troops, due to starvation and inclement conditions, and ended in a disastrous retreat from Moscow with his army defeated! (Socks Mojo with the pillow, Buttercup jumps to the floor with hers)
      Buttercup: Yeah, dummy! And when he returned to France, the allied nations of Europe united against him, which led to his eventual defeat at the Battle of Waterloo on June 18, 1815, whereafter he was exiled to the island of St. Helena, where he died a miserable death from stomach cancer on May 5, 1821, stupid! (Hits Mojo with her pillow)

    • Buttercup: Did you forget the babysitter?
      Professor: No, no, I forgot the babysitter.

  • Notes

    • This is the only episode which didn't start with "The city of Townsville."

    • First and only appearance of the Town of Citysville, The Mayor of Citysville, and the people of Citysville.

    • Villain(s): Mojo Jojo

    • The Mayor of Citysville cares about the bridge more than the condition of his city.

    • The Powerpuff Girls walk for the first time instead of flying in "Town and Out."

    • Mojo had perfect chances to destroy the Powerpuff Girls throughout "Child Fearing."

    • Blarney is a lochness monster and Barney the Dinosaur combined together.

    • As we learned in Nickelodeon's interview with the creator of this show, Craig McCracken loves Zelda 64. Because of his love for this game, the Mayor plays it as well.

    • The cooking style Mojo demonstrates in "Child Fearing" is known in Japan as "teppan-yaki." In teppan-yaki cooking, the food is prepared at the table, part of which is actually a grilling surface, while the customers sit around the other side and watch the cook prepare their meal. The knife-juggling and other such showing-off is apparently optional, but considered by some Western diners an enjoyable part of the teppan-yaki experience.
