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.

After The Powerpuff Girls Movie
(2002), the show underwent a series of changes: the production switched from traditional inked and painted cels to digital post production; the design for Mojo Jojo was changed to the more sinister-looking one used in the movie; and the end graphic, with the concentric hearts and the girls appearing in an explosion of stars, switched to the slightly more elaborate version used at the end of the movie.

So, now how do we get the money to afford the destructoray? Think, girls, think. Except you, Bubbles.
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. See more
Episode segment "Birthday Bash" of The Powerpuff Girls: Birthday Bash/Too Pooped to Puff
was edited in the UK because there was a scene where the Mayor says, "I got the little bugger" when he catches a target. In the UK, bugger is considered a profane and obscene word, so the word was overdubbed with the the Mayor saying "I got it!", from an earlier scene. See more
