* AuthorsSavingThrow: Many fans did '''''NOT''''' like Rainbow's fate at the end of the Season One episode "Mime For A Change". Perhaps to rectify this, he is seen again at the girls' birthday party (in the season two episode "Birthday Bash") as a free and happy clown. What helps is that the writers never intended to hurt Rainbow at the end of said "Mime...".

* AndYouThoughtItWouldFail: The test screening for the first pilot was an absolute disaster, with children complaining about the unusual character designs and one even going as far as to say that Craig [=McCracken=] should ''be fired''[[note]]This kid would later serve as the inspiration for [[TakeThat the show's bully Mitch Mitchelson]][[/note]]. Craig went to work redesigning the characters with more traditional features, but then-president of Creator/CartoonNetwork Mike Lazo reassured him that a negative reaction was better than a lukewarm reaction, and that they shouldn't change a thing.

** The Girls themselves [[DependingOnTheWriter can occasionally]] fall into this area. The aforementioned "Mime for a Change" and "Slave the Day" have them beat up characters who were either [[NotHimself not entirely at fault]] or [[MyGodWhatHaveIDone incredibly remorseful for their actions]] and they are supposed to still be cheered for it (as seen from the Narrator's comments). In the former episode's case, [[WhatCouldHaveBeen Craig and the writers actually wanted Rainbow the clown to be let off the hook]], but [[ExecutiveMeddling Mike Lazzo himself insisted on having Rainbow being beaten up and jailed]], and the surrounding backlash from this would be enough [[StartMyOwn for Lazzo to start]] Creator/AdultSwim, not unlike how Jeffrey Katzenberg started Creator/DreamWorks.

Until the [[ExecutiveMeddling network executives]] decided that [[EsotericHappyEnding Rainbow ending up in jail is a "better" ending]] (to which some fans and ''parents'' reacted negatively).

** The 2009 special. Some say it is the best episode of Powerpuff Girls while others say it is one of the worst.

** Seasons five and six mark a noticeable decline in quality, making the jokes much more cruder than in previous episodes and putting the characters through very noticeable {{Flanderization}}. This is because Craig and most of his crew left to work on ''Foster's''.

** Averted, one of the most revered cartoons during its era by both sexes. And despite the ass-kicking, the girls were pretty girly.
