The series gained notice from Cartoon Network in the same way that ''WesternAnimation/DextersLaboratory'' did, via the ''WesternAnimation/WhatACartoonShow'' contest for nonprofessional animators. It's possible that the two series have a SharedUniverse; the animation is very similar, the creators for both series collaborated on both series, and [[ShowWithinAShow "TV Puppet Pals"]] and superheroes like Major Glory and Val Hallen appear in both series. In addition, both cartoons (as well as Johnny Bravo) were introduced via the Space Ghost Coast to Coast special, World Premier Toon-In, and the Powerpuff Girls pilot aired after the special.

One of Creator/CartoonNetwork's most popular [[CartoonCartoons original series]], originally called "The Whoopass Girls" by creator Creator/CraigMcCracken (they were created with "sugar, spice, everything nice," and a can of Whoopass) before it got picked up by the network during TheRenaissanceAgeOfAnimation. ''The Powerpuff Girls'' revolves around a PowerTrio of {{Little Miss Badass}}es who fight crime in the fictional city of Townsville. These ArtificialHuman girls, who have no fingers, toes, flat feet, ears, or noses, were created when Professor Utonium accidentally added Chemical X to his mixture of sugar, spice, and everything nice.

Eight years after the show ended (and five after ''Powerpuff Girls Rule'' special). The series came back in the form of a CGI special in January of 2014. Most likely as a test pilot for a reboot (though oddly this was ''after'' Craig had left Cartoon Network to work with Disney on ''WesternAnimation/WanderOverYonder'', and even before then he had left the show after season 4). Supporting this is the that [[http://read.idwpublishing.com/Powerpuff-Girls/comics-series/11436 the girls returned to comic book format in September 2013]], this time under the IDW brand as part of a deal to allow classic Cartoon Network cartoons to be told in new adventures. Sure enough, [[http://www.eonline.com/news/551366/the-powerpuff-girls-returning-with-new-series-on-cartoon-network a reboot of the series was announced for a 2016 release]].
