Storyline

In this obscure cartoon short by then-young animator Craig McCracken, the Whoopass Girls (who were ultimately renamed the "Powerpuff Girls" a few years later when Cartoon Network picked up the short), three cute doll-like super girls created by the nerdy Professor Utonium (to create the "perfect little girl," he mixed together the three essential ingredients: sugar, spice, and everything nice, and accidentally added a can of "whoopass" to the concoction, thus resulting in the birth of the three girls: The leader Blossom, the shy Bubbles and the tough & tomboyish Buttercup) fight the then-unnamed Gangrene Gang in the main title sequence, and then in the actual episode, "A Sticky Situation," they fought the then-intelligent Amoeba Boys, who resorted to sticking themselves on the challenging Whoopass Girls, until the Girls find a clever way to get rid of them...

So this is how it all started for the Powerpuff Girls!
29 July 2000 | by (Richmond, VA) – See all my reviews

Yes, this cartoon short, WHOOPASS STEW!, was the genesis for the Powerpuff Girls as we know it! Back when creator Craig McCracken worked at Cal-Arts in the early 90s, he did some cartoon shorts for Spike & Mike's Sick & Twisted Animation Festival, including NO NECK JOE and, of course, WHOOPASS STEW! In this short, the Powerpuff Girls, originally named the "Whoopass Girls" looked the very same, had the same names Blossom, Bubbles and Buttercup (who was colored aquamarine rather than bright green), had the then-unnamed Gangrene Gang, and the Amoeba Boys, who were intelligent in this cartoon (as opposed to the benign, dopey versions on the show). The differences were Professor Utonium (who looked like an aging Dexter) and Chemical X (which was originally a can of "whoopass").

The animation was somewhat limited, but it cleverly ended up looking like 60s-style animation! The opening title sequence was exactly like the title sequence for the subsequent series (with more 70s-style music), only more violent! And an interesting treat is that McCracken was the narrator (speaking in a big towering voice)! McCracken didn't think this cartoon short was going to make it, having screened it for Cartoon Network, who showed a great amount of interest in the short (some of the test audience booed it). However, it was made into two WHAT A CARTOON shorts (the first short, "Meat Fuzzy Lumkins," was the first WHAT A CARTOON ever to be aired, making its premiere on SPACE GHOST: COAST TO COAST's World Premiere Toon Special), and became a surprise hit amongst the WHAT A CARTOONs that it eventually led to the popular TV series in 1998! Having seen the two WAC shorts and the series, I didn't know of WHOOPASS STEW! until early November of 1999 (sometime before the series' first anniversary), and saw it on the Internet! I enjoyed the short immensely, and showed it to fellow PPG fans, who, at first, thought it was a parody!

In summary, it's a fun, action-packed short! Fans of POWERPUFF GIRLS should check out this obscure short! You won't be disappointed!
