1In this musical episode in the style of rock operas ''Music/JesusChristSuperstar'' and ''Music/{{Tommy}}'', the girls are overwhelmed with the crime in Townsville. An evil gnome (Jess Harnell) grants them the wish of peace in exchange for their powers and ends up inducting the people of Townsville into a cult.≤≤!!''See Me, Feel Me, Gnomey'' provides examples of:≤* BannedEpisode: This is the only episode of ''The Powerpuff Girls'' that never aired on American TV. According to Craig [=McCracken=], it did not, as was alleged, have anything to do with the EpilepticFlashingLights or any Communism vs. Capitalism message, rather it was because the ending was mistaken for a Christian allegory because a character who looked a little too much like Jesus Christ appeared next to some steel beams that looked too much like a cross. [=McCracken=] said it was completely unintentional and the crew were genuinely surprised that it caused any controversy at all.≤* BeCarefulWhatYouWishFor: The Girls wish that there would be no more evil in Townsville. The Gnome then appears and grants them this wish, only to end up enslaving Townsville in the process. ≤* {{Cult}}: The Citizens of Townsville form one to worship the gnome after he rids the city of all evil.≤* DarkestHour: When the girls lose their fight against the villains, and realize they are outmatched while the city is for a great part in ruins. ≤* DealWithTheDevil: The Girls deal with the gnome in order to get rid of all the evil in Townsville.≤* {{Depower}}: The Gnome does this to the girls as part of their deal.≤* EmpathicEnvironment: During the girls DarkestHour, it starts raining. ≤* HeelRealization: When the Gnome realizes that by making the population of Townsville into his cult, he himself became a villain. ≤* IJustWantToBeNormal: Bubbles points out that one of the benefits of the Gnome's deal is that the girls can be normal little girls. This convinces Blossom and Buttercup to accept the deal.≤* LibertyOverProsperity: The Gnome frees Townsville of all evil and lets the city prosper, but in doing so turns all citizens into his followers and takes away their freedom of choice. In the end, the girls prefer for things to go back to how they were, with villains but also with freedom. ≤* LoopholeAbuse: The girls regain their powers when they realize that the Gnome himself is evil, and thus technically didnít uphold his end of the bargain. ≤* NeverSayDie: It's not outright said, but it's clear that the Gnome's magic ''destroys'' all the villains in Townsville. ≤* NoCelebritiesWereHarmed: The gnome was originally supposed to be an InkSuitActor of Creator/JackBlack, but by the time the episode went into production, Black was in too high demand to book for the show, so the character became a JB look-alike with Jess Harnell doing a spot-on impression of the real deal.≤* NoOntologicalInertia: The Gnome's defeat undoes [[DeathIsCheap the destruction of the villains]].≤* OhCrap:≤** Ace, when he sees the Gnome erase all the other villains, and tries to flee the scene.≤** The Gnome when the girls confront him about how he has become a villain himself. ≤* MusicalEpisode[=/=]SungThroughMusical: The whole episode is 1 big musical.≤* RunTheGauntlet: The Girls have to fight all members of their RoguesGallery (minus the Rowdyruff Boys) at the start of the episode.≤* SeriesFauxnale: This was the last episode produced for the series, until the anniversary special.≤* TookALevelInBadass: The Amoeba Boys and especially the Gangrene Gang are a lot more physical here compared to other episodes, and deliver quite a beating to the Powerpuff Girls. Ace even lands the first punch for the villains.≤* VillainTeamUp: [[UpToEleven The largest one ever seen in the series]], with Mojo Jojo, Fuzzy Lumpkins, Him, Princess Morbucks, Sedusa, the Gangrene Gang and the Amoeba Boys all working together. ≤* WheelChairAntics: Ace pushes an old man in a wheelchair down a steep hill, causing him to crash into a lamp post.
