Sugar... spice... and everything nice. These were the ingredients chosen to create the perfect little girls. But Professor Utonium accidentally added an extra ingredient to the concoction: Chemical X! Thus, the Powerpuff Girls were born! Using their ultra-superpowers, Blossom, Bubbles, and Buttercup have dedicated their lives to fighting crime and the forces of evil!
In a sane world this would be broadcast every night instead of the news.One of Cartoon Network's most popular original series, originally called "The Whoopass Girls" by creator Craig Mc Cracken (they were created with "sugar, spice, everything nice," and a can of Whoopass) before it got picked up by the network during The Renaissance Age of Animation. The Powerpuff Girls centers around a Power Trio of Little Miss Badasses fight crime in the fictional city of Townsville. These Artificial Human girls, who have no discernible fingers, toes, ears, or noses, were created when Professor Utonium accidentally added Chemical X to his mixture of sugar, spice and everything nice.The series' heroines are Blossom, "commander and the leader," who often acts the Drill Sergeant Nasty; Bubbles, "the joy and the laughter," whose personality is very similar to that of her namesake from Jabberjaw (but not quite a Dumb Blonde), and Buttercup, "the toughest fighter," and the tomboyish Action Girl with a bad attitude. Their simian Arch-Enemy Mojo Jojo wears a helmet to cover his enlarged brain and speaks in a manner reminiscent of bad anime dubbing. Aside from the obvious Anime influences, most of the series' supporting characters are drawn in the style of Two Stupid Dogs (not surprisingly, as the creator of the show worked on that cartoon).Warner Bros. released an animated feature, The Powerpuff Girls Movie, in 2002 (which sadly bombed at the theaters due to bad marketing from Warner Bros, though it does have the honor of being the only Cartoon Network series to have a theatrical movie). An anime version, Demashita! Powerpuff Girls Z, hit the airwaves in Japan on July 1st, 2006. There is also, off the record in the webcomic world, a popular fancomic based off the series called Powerpuff Girls Doujinshi.Reruns still air on Boomerang, and Genndy Tartakovsky has confirmed a reboot (not to be confused with the confirmed false rumors of a remake by Craig Mc Cracken, Lauren Faust, and Butch Hartman or a return on September 13, 2013). CN's official word is that it will air as a special in 2013 and will be computer-generated.As of April 2013, the first three seasons are available on Netflix.The series gained notice from Cartoon Network in the same way that Dexter's Laboratory did, via the What A Cartoon Show contest for nonprofessional animators. It's possible that the two series have a Shared Universe; the animation is very similar, the creators for both series collaborated on both series, and "TV Puppet Pals" appears in both series.
