Plot Summary

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

Quotes Bubbles: Do you think he's finished?
Mojo Jojo: No! But you are!
[He fries the girls with fire breath]
Mojo Jojo: [Picks the girls up and starts to climb a skyscraper] Fools! You dare to challenge me! Attempt to defeat me! Try to destroy ME! I who saved you from certain death! After all I've done for you, you betray me! And why? For them? The ones who hated you! Have forsaken you! Can't you see, none of them will ever understand you as I can? For we are kindred spirits whose powers spring from the same source. So girls, do not make me destroy you! For we are smarter, we are stronger, we are invincible, we have the power, we are superior to them, AND WE SHALL RULE! All we have to do is work together. Girls, join me!
The Girls: ...NOOOOO!
[the girls break free and attack]
Blossom: We'd never join you! And it's because we are stronger!
Bubbles: Because we are invincible!
Buttercup: Because we have the power!
The Girls: We have to protect them from you!
Blossom: It's you who is to be feared!
Bubbles: Cause you are a monster!
Buttercup: You are evil!
The Girls: AND YOU ARE... it!
[the girls tag Mojo Jojo, pushing him off the building]
