The Powerpuff Girls (1998) debut, Wednesday, November 18th, 1998, was 70 years after first animation short, Steamboat Willie (1928) with volume (voices, music and sounds). Walt Disney was original voice of Steamboat Willie, (Disney quickly re-named Willie, Mickey Mouse) and 90 years after late comical actress and dancer, Imogene Coca's date of birth on Wednesday, November 18th, 1908.

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.

Powerpuff Girls was a fun show. It was not very smart or deep, but it usually had some funny parts and the message was usually positive. Even though the three main characters were girls, the show was aimed at the young kids that can enjoy a cartoon whether it is about boys or girls. The boys of course had MoJo-JoJo to identify with, and I know I did. The cartoon was mindless fun for adults too. It occasionally had enough double-entendre gags that an adult could laugh through the entire episode. Unfortunately, the writers of Powerpuff Girls ran out of ideas or creativity probably by the time the movie came out. The first two or three years of the show were really full of fun and energy. However the last years did not seem very inspired. Perhaps the well had run dry. My daughter lost interest in the Powerpuff Girls right after she saw the movie, and I could see why. It had lost its snap, crackle, pop! Too bad, but at least for a couple of years it was a lot of fun.
