Storyline

The straight-laced Prof. Utonium's attempt to create perfect little girls accidentally includes "Chemical X", resulting in take-charge red-head Blossom, blonde sweety-pie Bubbles and ready-to-fight brunette Buttercup. These flying, super-strong, karate-chopping girls with the occasional heat vision race into action to save the city of Townsville (and, we're told, the world) from all sorts of crimes and creatures. Written by Ray Schaff -2-

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.

The best Cartoon Cartoon next to Dexter's Laboratory
29 March 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Way before he broke ground for an orphanage that houses imaginary friends and a nomadic and overly-optimistic intergalactic traveler, Craig McCracken created the world's youngest superhero team! In the nineties, there were a lot of really entertaining cartoons on T.V. and this show were among the most successful of them. Professor Untonium mixes sugar, spice, and everything nice together to create the perfect little girl...and then accidentally adds an extra ingredient: Chemical X. The result is Blossom, Bubbles, and Buttercup, also known as the Powerpuff Girls; three super-powered five-year-old girls who defend Townsville from all the various villains of the world. This show also had a feature film which was pretty good too. I recommend this cartoon to anyone!
