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...

A cute cartoon showing the origin of what would later be The Powerpuff Girls
11 October 2000 | by sjcobertSee all my reviews

"The Whoopass Girls" are created by Professor Utonium, duke it out with a quintet of gangrenous punks, and have to come up with a novel escape when they get stuck on a trio of three-foot-long amoeba crooks. Viewers will recognize The Whoopass Girls as the trio now known as The Powerpuff Girls; they are a little leaner in this short than they are on the familiar Hanna Barbera cartoons, and although their names are the same and their outfits (mostly) the same, the personalities of the Girls were not much developed until Cartoon Network picked up the show four years later. Trivia bit: The punks in the first part of the cartoon (later named The Gangreen Gang) were a satire on Fat Albert and the Cosby Kids!
