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-

Trivia

The location of Townsville is given in the episode The Powerpuff Girls: Him Diddle Riddle (2001) when the girls must solve numerous puzzles given by Him, "or else the Professor will pay." The final location in the hunt is given by the Mayor who states that the global coordinates of an intersection is at 32 degrees north and 212 degrees west (or 148 east). This puts Townsville in the Pacific Ocean, approximately 400 hundred miles east-by-southeast from Japan's largest island of Honshu. See more »

User Reviews

Excellent action comedy satire for adults
30 April 1999 | by See all my reviews

With so much adult appeal, hilarious visual gags and storys, this kind of anime spoof by the animators of Dexter's Laboratory is one of the year's best cartoons. Creator Craig McCracken (2 Stupid Dogs, No Neck Joe, Dexter's Lab) is a genius. The show is certainly not for very young children - in some fight scenes, the characters actually bleed! A no-no for babies - a bonus for adult anime fans or fans of The Simpsons, Ren & Stimpy and South Park. Again, like in Dexter's Laboratory, there's a clever combination of 50s American style and 90s Japanese anime style. If this show was on at prime time on a free to air network (not just on cable) it would be so popular with all! There would be T-shirts, toys, merchandise galore! The makers of the show would be rich, rich, RICH!!! $$$$$$$$ This show rules! I love it! Do you?
