Storyline

In the city of Townsville, the frustrated Professor Utonium is gathering all the ingredients to make a perfect little girl (sugar, spice, and everything nice). But when his lab assitant, a monkey named Jojo, causes the accidental addition of Chemical X to the mix, the Professor ends up with not one but 3 perfect, powerful little girls. It soon becomes obvious that Blossom, Bubbles, and Buttercup are not normal girls, they have superpowers and have not yet learned to control. The girls are treated like outcasts because they have inadvertently wrecked Townsville in a superpowered game of tag. To win the hearts of the people of Townsville, the girls are tricked into making a deal with Jojo who plans to take over Townsville. As the girls foil this threat and defeat an army of superpowered monkeys, the Powerpuff Girls learn that with great power comes great responsibility. Written by Britney

Different and interesting animated movie...
5 July 2002 | by dwpollarSee all my reviews

1st watched 7/5/2002 - 6 out of 10(Dir-Craig McCracken): Different and interesting animated movie based on the cult-like girl-followed popular television show on the cartoon network. The movie is the story of how they came to be and how they decided to fight crime and evil in Townsville after their first harmless kindergarten game of tag destroyed the town. There is a good message behind this silly superhero story despite the much-publicized violent content. Yes, there is violent content and the evil that they face is `very' evil, but you can't help but love the well-intentioned `Professor' trying to be a parent to these over-achiever kindergartner's and his attempt to make them good little girls made of sugar, and spice and everything nice despite their super-human strengh. Bravo for this very un-Disney like entry by the Cartoon Network!!
