Did You Know?


In the first cartoon, "Three Girls and a Monster" of The Powerpuff Girls: Three Girls and a Monster/Monkey See, Doggie Two (2000) Blossom orders the commencement of flight plan Alpha-Omega-Atari. When executing this plan, the girls race through the city, at one point forming, with their color trails, the Atari symbol. In addition, the names Alpha and Omega are the names of the first and last gun turrets in Atari's classic arcade game Missile Command (Delta is the one left out). See more »

Crazy Credits

On the first 4 seasons of the show (1998-2002), the closing logo used at the end isn't Cartoon Network's logo (as seen on Dexter's Laboratory (1996) and many others); instead, the 1980s "swirling star" logo (as featured on Hanna-Barbera cartoons of the time, except for an updated byline mentioning Time Warner) appears.

Let's Save The World Before Bedtime !

One of the best for sure. This show has some fine imagination, strange yet smart sense of comedy, nice action, and original moments. I can't forget an episode concerning the tooth fairy going bananas because simply he doesn't sleep (as he works just before the dawn which begins in new where every second !), so he toils around the clock and around the terrestrial globe unstoppably, envying Santa Claus who sleeps all the year just to work for one night (he totally got a point !), and so on the uncommonness of this show. Basically the main idea of Charlie's Angels as kids mixed with superpower as animated series is super itself. I've got hooked by it in the first place. Another factor; the droll drawings where the character's design is unique and funny, the atmosphere is so gaudily colored (as if children did it), and the motion is always MAD. Not to mention being a girlie show that could attract both girls and boys in the same time. By the way, I kind of study the whole TV shows and history, following accurately many running themes, their time of prosperity, and their milestones; so I noticed that along with this show, 1998 witnessed the birth of another shows such as "Charmed", and Charlie's Angels spoof "V.I.P" too; it assures undoubtedly that girls became nobody's fool, too tough, and have PowerPuff or PowerGirls leagues all over the world nowadays. Few cartoon shows that I feel bad whenever they cut to commercials while it, craving what would happen and how the problem would be solved.. This is one of them. With this spirit, especially at writing, this show maintains fresh every time I catch it. It managed to be as original and lovely as its tagline "Saving the world before bedtime". Being a talented fun time and a loose fantasy just like infants' vision yet sharper.
