The Professor is best girl.
So once again, the audience has ached with laughter, thanks to The Powerpuff Girls.

The Powerpuff Girls Movie has its own page.

For the 2016 series, see here.

  • In Cat Man Do, the girls try to make pancakes for the Professor, hoping he'll say they can keep the cat. He walks in and announces that they can keep him. The girls immediately react as if he said they couldn't before asking him to repeat himself. His reaction when Bubbles asks to hold the cat also seems pretty funny out of context.
    "No! None of you can ever hold Kitty!"
  • In "Ice Sore", a heatwave is occurring and the Professor is trying to figure out what force equals to. When he gets it wrong, he bangs his hand on the table, making the coffee spill and burn his hand.
  • The end of "Gesundfight":
    Narrator: So Once Again, the Day Is Saved, thanks to the Powerpuff Girls! [sneezes] Excuse me.
  • The episode "Insect Inside" has Bubbles answering the hotline and not taking The Mayor's distress call seriously.
    Bubbles: (Picks up the phone) Hi.
    Mayor: (While the roaches are still outside his office) Powerpuff Girls?
    Bubbles: Bye. (Hangs up)
    (Hotline rings again)
    Bubbles: Hi.
    (The roaches start to come in)
    Mayor: Emergency!
    Bubbles: Bye. (Hangs up again)
    (Hotline rings again)
    Bubbles: Hi.
    (The Mayor and Ms. Bellum are clearly getting covered with roaches)
    Mayor: Get downtown!
    Bubbles: Bye.
    (Blossom and Buttercup give her a look that says "What the hell are you doing?")
    • The next time the phone rings, Blossom answers and you can see Buttercup holding Bubbles away from the phone.

  • In the episode "Not So Awesome Blossom", Blossom has run away, and Mojo Jojo has kidnapped The Professor and forces him to call the girls' hotline and read a note. Mojo's speaking/writing style + the Professor's monotone make the scene hilarious in a way that has to be heard to be understood.
    Professor Utonium: Bubbles, Buttercup, or whichever of the two remaining Powerpuff Girls has answered the hotline, listen closely. Pay attention. Concentrate intently on the words coming from my mouth. I, The Professor, am being held prisoner. I am being kept against my will in a location not of my choosing. If you desire my safe return, you must come immediately to the lair of Mojo Jojo. Together. Not alone. Independently is not an option...
    Buttercup: I think we're supposed to go to Mojo's and save the Professor.
    Bubbles: Again?
  • Advertisement:
  • In the same episode, you have this little exchange between Mojo and Blossom.
    Mojo Jojo: First, you will bow down before me! Next, you will pledge your allegiance and devotion to serve me!
    Blossom: How do you know I won't lie?
    Mojo Jojo: Because you're Blossom.
    Blossom: Shoot!
  • "Knock it Off": How in the way Dick Hardly hides the Chemical X in his mouth. That's the only funny moment about him in the entire episode, since he’s such a disturbing character.
  • The whole of "The Powerpuff Girls' Best Rainy Day Adventure Ever":
    • Bubbles calls the hotline pretending to be the Mayor. The real Mayor picks up.
      Mayor: What's that, Mayor? A giant alligator is destroying Townsville! I'm on it.
      * Jumps out the window. Ms. Bellum comes up to him*
      Mayor: ...I... fell in the mud.
      • What really sells the Mayor's "I fell in the mud" line is the way he says it. Rather than sounding upset, it's in a rather calm way that makes it seem like it's something he's regularly done before, which if anything, makes it even funnier.
      • Not to mention, why was Ms Bellum hanging around outside City Hall in the rain anyway?
    • Bubbles and Buttercup pretending to fly while humming the theme song and trying to mimic their flight sound with their mouths.
    • When the girls get into an argument about who should play who (nobody wants to be Bubbles), the Professor shows up and tells them to keep it down so he can work. When asked how to settle things so he can get back to work, they end up having THE PROFESSOR pretend to be Bubbles. It really has to be seen to be believed, they have him wear one of Bubbles’ dresses (which is of course way too small for him) and have his hair up in pigtails, and his annoyed expression and stance really seals it, especially the way he pretends to fly with the girls.
      Professor: Fly fly fly fly fly, POW!, bye bye bye bye bye.
    • Buttercup's impression of Him is just golden.
      Buttercup: Maybe it was meeee! I have the power, the skill, and the wardrobe to create such a beeeeast.
    • Blossom pretending to be Mojo, complete with mimicking his speech patterns. Bubbles also pretends to be Fuzzy Lumpkins.
    • While the girls are playing, they come up with a story completely as they go about Mojo Jojo unleashing a giant alligator on Townsville. At the end of the episode, we get a shot of a giant alligator attacking Townsville. The Mayor calls the girls, saying that Mojo Jojo unleashed a giant alligator on Townsville. Blossom's response?
      Blossom: Do we have to? *Beat* Oh, alright.
  • "Child Fearing":
    • When Mojo Jojo is babysitting the girls, he tells them a bedtime story which is a completely wrong account of Napoléon Bonaparte's conquests. The girls correct him with a detailed description of the later Napoleonic Wars, all while hitting him with pillows. Adding to the funniness is the fact that they're in kindergarten. Which makes no sense, making the scene funnier.
      • To top it, after the girls have chased Mojo a bit with the pillows, the girls all stop, look quizzically at the pillows, then drop the pillows and just punch Mojo like normal.
    • Blarney the singing sea serpent.
      Blarney: If I were a bunny I would... HOP HOP HOP!! If I were a rhino I would... STOMP STOMP STOMP! If I were a fish I would... SCREAM SCREAM SCREAM! If I were a candle I would... (Which is cut off by Mojo shouting "ENOUGH!" right before we see past Blarney holding up a flaming candle)
      Mojo: I HAVE HAD IT! IT'S! TIME! FOR! BED!!!!!!"
    • The Mayor killing Navi in Ocarina of Time. "You just killed your own fairy."
      • He also managed to lose five of his lives just from getting hit by a falling platform.
      • The scene ends with the Mayor saying, "Oh, darn fairy!" So either the Mayor had managed to kill Navi again, or he somehow managed to get Navi to start attacking Link.
    • Mojo cooking an elaborate hibachi dinner for the Girls, only for them to end up hating it, which makes complete sense considering that 5-year olds aren’t exactly the target for sushi.
    • Also, isn’t Bubbles a vegetarian?
      • Apparently dipping sauce is Serious Business to Mojo.
        Mojo Jojo: No dipping shrimp! FISH ONLY!
  • The episode "Supper Villain" has a lot of funny moments:
    • "You'll never guess what's for breakfast... pan-cakes!" "This family stinks."
    • When everyone has finished eating and they are waiting for the professor as he slowly chews on his one pea, that's funny enough ("SWALLOW IT!"), but then, as soon as he finishes and everyone is ready to start fighting, Maryanne asks, "Who wants dessert?" and the professor immediately raises his hand.
      Harold:(exasperated) Oh for crying out loud, Maryanne!
    • The reason Maryanne swears revenge on the Girls at the end? Not because they got her husband sent to jail, but because they ruined the dinner party!
    • Harold's costume, especially the sparkler on his head and the fact his gun is a hair drier with a bubble blower sellotaped to it.
    • In the sequel to that episode, "Just Desserts", when the entire Smith family becomes supervillains, they give their reasons for wanting to turn evil. Bud (the son's) reason? "You know what? I hate everything!"
      • And what is the reason for the Smiths wanting to destroy the Girls and their house? Not just to avenge the father being sent to jail, but also to avenge the Smiths' dinner with Girls being ruined by them. The Girls' unimpressed expressions and Maryanne's dumbfounded reaction when they point out how dumb her reason is sells it.
      • Harold's supervillain costume looks even lamer in this episode because the rest of his family has had time to put together REAL costumes for themselves, while Harold's is the same hobby patchwork he made in his basement over the course of a few days in the previous episode. He even lampshades it.
      • The fact that Harold's life in jail is just as monotonous and dull as his life was on the outside.
      • "You'll never guess what's for breakfast... SLOP!"
      • "We haven't kissed like that since 1980!"
  • Pretty much the entirety of "Los Dos Mojos":
    • Bubbles, thinking that she is Mojo Jojo after being hit on the head, steals Mojo's clothes when he is taking a bath.
      Blossom: What evil have you bestowed on our sister?
      Mojo Jojo: You've got to be kidding. I'm wet, I'm naked, your sister is wearing my clothes, and this is all part of some evil plot TO RULE THE WORLD AS A SOGGY CHIMP IN MY BIRTHDAY SUIT?!?
    • Earlier, as Mojo first notices Bubbles acting like him, copying his manner of Motor Mouth speech and repeating everything over and over again...
    • The exchange after Blossom attempts to attack amnesiac Bubbles after she slams her into a wall.
      Buttercup: Blossom, wait! She's our sister!
      Blossom: Yeah, but that really hurt...
      Buttercup: I know, I know, but two wrongs don't make a right. She hits you, you hit her. Suddenly we're all hitting each other! Then we'll all be back right where we started.
      Bubbles: What's the matter, Buttercup? 'Fraid I'll whoop that skirt off 'ya?
      Buttercup: Alright, let's kick her butt.
    • There's also something inherently funny about Buttercup, a.k.a. Ms. Hit-First-Ask-Questions-Later, trying to be the voice of reason.
    • And then, Mojo proposes that they join forces. Bubbles and Mojo get then in a Department of Redundancy Department combat, with Mojo giving her an increasingly not-amused face the longer she rants.
      Bubbles: I'm not Bubbles! Bubbles is not my name! For the name "Bubbles" is not a correct name to address me by, because it is not my name! If you were to address me by the name "Mojo Jojo", that would be correct. For my name is Mojo Jojo! And I will only be addressed by that name, which is Mojo Jojo! And furthermore, it is not we who will rule the world, it is I! I, being Mojo Jojo, who is not Bubbles, shall rule this world alone, which is to say, without anybody else! And without anybody else shall I rule this world! And when this world is ruled by only one person, and not a collective group, that one person who shall be ruling the world will be none other than me! Mojo Jojo! HA HA HA!
      Mojo Jojo: Oh, SHUT UP!
      * hits her over the head with an I-beam, taking her out cold*
      Mojo Jojo: That's all just well enough, because in reality there is only room enough in this world for one Mojo Jojo. One shall be the number of Mojo Jojos in the world and the number of Mojo Jojos in the world shall be one! Two Mojo Jojos is too many, and three is right out! So the only Mojo Jojo there is room for in the world shall be me! And being the only Mojo Jojo in the world, I will rule the world, in which there is ONLY! ONE! MOJO JOJO!
    • It's also really funny to see how increasingly annoyed Mojo gets while Bubbles is speaking in this scene. For extra points, she's offscreen throughout the rant, meaning you only get to see Mojo's reaction.
  • From the anti-Straw Feminist episode "Equal Fights":
    Mayor: Blossom! There's this crazy tomato stealing all the Susan B. Anthony coins from the mint!
    Blossom: Oh, really?
    Mayor: Eh... yeah.
    Blossom: And just what do you want us to do for you?
    Mayor: Oh, eh... stop her, or... something...
    • Later on, when Ms. Bellum and Ms. Keene are calling out the girls for becoming Straw Feminists, they bring in three female victims of Femme Fatale. One is a female bank president who had her bank robbed by Femme Fatale, another is a policewoman whose arm was injured by Femme Fatale, and the last is a teenage girl who complains that Femme Fatale stole her hairstyle.
      Teenage girl: Well she did!
  • Buttercup's little crush on Ace being brought up twice in "Aspirations".
    Bubbles: The Gangreen Gang? You wished for them?
    Buttercup: No!
    Bubbles: I thought you were over them!
    [Beat as Buttercup gives Bubbles a long Death Glare]
    Buttercup: Why do you gotta bring up old stuff?
    • Later on...
      Buttercup: Hmph! Typical guys: See some curves; turn into gibbering idiots! (Blossom and Bubbles stare suspiciously at her.) NOT LIKE I CARE!
  • "I work in insurance. My company insures buildings in Townsville against damage. [Beat] I am a very busy man."
  • The girls are hiding in the bushes spying on their new neighbors and spot a little girl.
    Blossom: (whispering) You think she can see us?
    * Bubbles starts jumping up and down yelling "YOO-HOO!"*
    Buttercup: Yep.
  • *om nom nom nom nom* "Pie!"
  • "Criss Cross Crisis":
    • "Mayor, what are you doing in our house? Oh, I'm not in your house, you're in my body. Oh! Hmmm hmm." [Beat] *Cue Spit Take from Bubbles* "Aaarrghh!"
    • The Gangreen Gang switching bodies with a bunch of teenage girls...none of whom seem to notice or care about the situation, and continue to squeal over cute guys in magazines. Ace has even painted his toenails.
    • Blossom flying around as an angry dachshund.
      Weiner Attack!
    • Then, as Mojo (now a sumo wrestler) is at a great advantage against the girls (now a cobra, caterpillar, and wiener dog), against all probability, the girls are transformed into a fisherman, sushi chef, and Eskimo, while Mojo becomes a fish.
      Mojo: Unbelievable!
    • "Professor, your hand doesn't work!"
  • In "Him Diddle Riddle" the girls have to solve various riddles by a certain amount of time, or else the Professor will pay. The girls lose eventually and the Professor ends up, well, having to pay... for the pancakes Him made at a diner. The pancakes would've been free if the girls had solved the riddles in time.
    • The Powerpuffs have to take the SATs, needing to get over 100 total to pass the test. Buttercup gets a 25. Blossom gets a 12. Bubbles, whose answer sheet was filled out to form a daisy, got over a thousand.
      Him: (dumbfounded) Well, I'll be darned.
    • The Narrator's reaction to the reveal at the end, complete with no music and the girls standing around dumbfounded.
      Narrator: And so... eh... hm... yeah...
    • Then there's the final riddle, which is answered by The Mayor of all people, who effortlessly decodes the meaning of 'boiling and freezing' as coordinates, figures out what area they lead to, then throws in, "...Or maybe there's an ice cream truck on fire."
  • In the episode "Mime for a Change".
    Bubbles: (on why we need color) Nature has big, big plans for color! ... Not to mention all the safety reasons!
    (Car parks in front of fire hydrant. Bubbles picks up car.)
    Bubbles: You can't park in front of a fire hydrant! (Throws the car)
    Driver: I didn't knoooooooow!
    • Upon confronting Mr. Mime.
      Blossom: So, you like to make things black and white, huh?!
      Buttercup: Well, how would you like to be black and blue?!
    • When Bubbles discovers her sisters having succumbed to the loss of color, she simply tries to color them in with her crayons, Blossom in pink and Buttercup in green, but when it doesn't work, Bubbles looks to the sky and screams, "NOOOOOOO!"
      Narrator: Oh, Bubbles, in this dark town, you're all alone and blue. What are you going to do?
      Bubbles: (brightening up) I got it!
      (cue the song "Love Makes the World Go 'Round")
    • Bubbles' song while coloring.
    • During "Love Makes The World Go Round", it's both hilarious and heartwarming to see/hear Buttercup, the "toughest fighter", singing the "La La Love!" part of the chorus.
    • At the end, Rainbow the Clown is back to normal, and cheerfully thanks the girls in song... but then they beat him up and send him to jail because of all the trouble he caused as Mr. Mime.
  • Mojo's failure to subvert Never Recycle Your Schemes in "Monkey See, Doggie Two":
    Mojo: So, Powerpuffs, now that you have seen these special precautions, what do you plan to do?!
    Blossom: *shrugs* We're gonna kick your butt.
    Mojo: HUH?!
  • The entire "Curses" episode. Starting with Bubbles saying "Stupid [censored] crayon!"
    • This exchange takes the cake:
      Blossom: It's obviously an adjective that can be used for good and bad words. There's great, there's super great, and then there's [cat hissing] great!
      Bubbles: Kitty?
    • The scene where everyone complains about the giant potty-mouthed monster swearing, especially since the people offended by the monster's profanity include a pair of bikers and a convict.
    • After the Powerpuff Girls stop a bank robbery while cursing a blue streak, this happens.
      Bubbles: Have a ***ing nice day!
      Cop: (Befuddled) You have a ***ing nice day, too.
    • After the girls finally learn that swearing is bad, they proceed to use the Soap Punishment on the giant potty-mouthed monster and then order him to take a time-out while thinking about what he did. Buttercup does not take kindly to the monster's complaining.
      Buttercup: Stop talking and start ***ing thinking!
  • Princess talking on the phone in "Boy Toys".
    Princess: Now look, monkey butt, it's real simple! Take your cheap, good-for-nothing, lazy soy latte, honey, and leap out a high window 'cause you're breathing my air, and you are fired! Ugh! *hangs up* Man, my mom can be such a pain in the butt.
  • Mojo Jojo's attempt to avert the creation of the Powerpuff Girls, which ultimately makes him the reason for their existence in the first place. Again. You can imagine how he felt about this.
    Narrator: So Once Again, the Day Is Saved thanks to the Powerpuff Girls, but it was originally thanks to Mojo Jojo (who is still repeating "It was me.")
    • After Mojo uses the Professor's time machine and he's explaining how it works, there's something hilarious about the way the Professor adds, "I'm not even sure he'll survive."
  • Big Billy's Show-and-Tell in “Schoolhouse Rocked”. Partly because of how it comes right out of nowhere, and partly for everyone else's reaction to the one giant eye in the middle of his forehead.
  • In the "Rashomon"-Style episode "The Bare Facts", Bubbles' retelling is visualized in crayon drawings, including a cloud "that looked like a cloud".
    Bubbles: Buttercup hurt Mojo's head, and I would have kiss'ded his widdle boo-boo, but then I remembered he's a bad monkey so I KICKED IN HIS FACE!!!
    • At the end where Bubbles tells the whole episode all over again, which her sisters call her out on.
  • In "A Very Special Blossom," the girls ask the Mayor for $2,000 for saving the city (Mojo Jojo had wrecked it because a hobby store did not have an item that he wanted), so that they can get the Professor a set of golf clubs for Father's Day. The Mayor's reaction is nothing short of priceless (no pun intended):
    • What sells it even further is the close up of the Mayor's monocle and its reflection of the girls smiling.
  • "Daylight Savings":
    • When it cuts to the Professor waiting outside Ms. Keane's office, a woman comes out sobbing like her dog just died. When he's called in and sits in the chair across from Ms. Keane, they sit in tense silence as she writes down various things and the Professor sweats bullets like he's being grilled by the police.
      Ms Keane: [after a LONG wait in silence] Well.
      Professor Utonium: [startled] I DIDN'T DO IIIIT!
    • The conference itself has this gem:
      Professor Utonium: Well, they are superheroes, you know, and saving the world's a big responsibility.
      Ms. Keane: But education is a bigger responsibility.
      Professor Utonium: (in a "cowboy" voice) Yup, that am true, Ms. Keane!
    • Enforcing curfew for the first time.
    • And when it turns out that it's actually 6:41 PM, and he never set the clocks back for daylight savings time:
      Professor Utonium: (kicks down the bedroom door, turns on the light, rushes to the bed) (pulling covers away) Girls, wake up! GIRLS, WAKE UP!! (slamming hotline receiver in cradle repeatedly) Buzz! Buzz! Buzz! Buzz! Buzz! (grabs mattress) Get out of bed! Now! (flips the mattress; the girls are now awake) (frantically) Daylight savings, clocks wrong, forty-five minutes, save Townsville now!
      Blossom: But what about our curfew?
      Prof. Utonium: There's no time! (throws them out their windows one at a time) GO! GO! GO!
    • Just the fact that the title gives away the twist to the episode.
  • In "Too Pooped to Puff", The Professor can't reach the remote. The girls get fed up with his laziness and leave, except for Bubbles. Bubbles smiles and picks up the remote, then promptly drops it on the floor and exits.
    • Later in the episode the girls try to walk the townspeople through defeating the monster without them. The entire sequence plays out like the Witch scene from Monty Python and the Holy Grail.
    Random Citizen 13: If we force the monster to take a bath, his toast will get soggy!
  • Speaking of Townsville, at first, when the monster shows up, they just go about their day normally. I'm not joking.
  • In "Impeach Fuzz", Mayor going absolutely apeshit when Fuzzy puts on his Mayor hat.
    • Here's the Mayor's little rant, and Fuzzy's retort;
    Mayor: FUZZY! You can throw away my things, and I don't mind the hay on the floor, and the chicken wire's a nice touch, and I kinda like that beat-up old flivver. But no one, I mean no one, wears my mayorin' hat! Now give it back!
    Fuzzy: I'll wrestle you for it.
  • In "Meet the Beat Alls" Mojo and HIM are having a Eviler Than Thou argument which Princess interrupts insisting that she'll be the one to beat the girls because she has the greatest power of all: cold hard cash.
    Mojo: She has a point there.
    Him: Yes, she does.
    [long beat]
    Mojo: But, still.
    Him: Yes. *resume fight*
    • Fuzzy Lumpkins decides he wants to be part of the argument too, but since he isnt actually part of the conversation, he just starts yelling nonsense.
    • Just everything about the episode, complete with non-stop references. And their plan to use a monkey Yoko Ono to break up the group was sheer brilliance.
      • Even the commentary on the episode gets in on the fun— Mojo Jojo spends the entirety of the commentary track berating the director of the episode for being a talentless hack, berating the audience for wasting their time listening to a commentary track, and making even more Beatles references.
  • The Cartoon Network bump in which the Powerpuff Girls take on the Legion of Doom from Superfriends is a laugh riot from beginning to end, from Wonder Woman rolling her eyes over Aquaman's failed attempt to use his aquatic friends to save them to Bubbles wishing to be just as developed as Wonder Woman when she grows up.
  • From the Christmas Special:
    Professor: Gah! I can make three kids out of seasoning, but I just can't get these darned lights to work.
    • Princess asks her chauffeur, her butler, and her nanny if they think she is naughty. All of them desperately try to avoid answering her question.
    • Professor Utonium begging the girls to get up so they can open Christmas presents, much like an excited child waking up his parents.
  • "Bubblevision", about Bubbles getting temporary Nerd Glasses and her sisters making jibes at it.
    Blossom: Ah, what a sight for sore eyes!
    Buttercup: It's old four eyes!
    Bubbles: Hey! You said you were just kidding!
    Buttercup: We were!
    Blossom: About "just kidding"!
    • Also the scene where Bubbles, while not having her glasses on, mistakes a couple of those air vent things for her sisters and asks them if they defeated the giant ant.
    • Bubbles gets it again in "The City of Nutsville" regarding a temporary Elizabethan collar treatment as a remedy for her bee-stung throat.
      Prof. Utonium: Uh, uh, uh! The doctor said, "No speaking for a week." The less you speak, the sooner you can get out of that, um... that... eh...
      Buttercup: ..."Face brace"?
      (Buttercup and Blossom break out in laughter.)
      • And just seconds later, Buttercup doubles it up.
      Prof. Utonium: Now, now, girls. It's not nice to make fun of your sister's condition! It's not her fault that she's stuck wearing this... this... ehm...
      Buttercup: ..."Throat moat"?
      (Buttercup and Blossom break out in laughter again.)
      (The Professor struggles to hold his laughter in.)
  • Anything involving Boomer.
    Boomer: You girls are gonna eat your words, spit 'em out, and eat 'em again!
    Blossom: That doesn't even make sense.
    Boomer: I know you are, but what am I?!
  • Brick's got some good ones, too, such as his reaction to finding Boomer trapped in the Girls' house wearing nothing but his underwear in "Bubble Boy".
    Brick: We're not here to have a party!
    • Oh and let's not forget the time that Blossom pulled down his pants in an effort to embarrass him and make him shrink, and it works. Considering that earlier, Blossom said that "Whenever their masculinity is threatened, they shrink in size." perhaps she meant literally emasculating them, and for Brick's case, by... revealing it.
  • From "The Powerpuff Girls Rule!"
    • The episode was full of hilarious moments, with highlights like this:
      The Mayor: I lost it! I lost the key! AHHHHHH!
      Professor Utonium: AHHHHHH!
      Girls: AHHHHHH!
      The Narrator: AHHHHHH! All of the villains and all of the bratty ones and all the fuzzy ones and all the icky ones and all the sticky ones and all the scary ones and all the villains are-
      Mojo: One of us is not here!
    • Bubbles deduces that the Mayor didn't actually lose the key but simply had it in his desk drawer all along. Mojo, after hearing this, heads for city hall in his tank.
    • And this:
      Buttercup: (Being shown as the dystopian ruler Big Butter) There's only one way to rule the world! Just tell everybody what to do and when to do it! And if any of 'em got a problem with it, they can take it up with Punchy McGee and Fisty O'Flannigan!
      • Compare that with Bubbles' own idea to rule the world:
        Bubbles: Free puppies! FOR EVERYONE!!!!
    • The Overused Running Gag of the Girls being drawn with huge mouths.
    • The hilarious Curb-Stomp Battle the girls perform on Mojo Jojo's Humongous Mecha, as well as Blossom's (much improved) Mojo impression during it:
      Blossom: Look, we go through this every day. You're all, "I, Mojo Jojo, with my blah blah blah blah blah, shall RULE THE WORLD!! I will be the one in control! Total global power shall be my responsibility! I-"
    • Mojo Jojo singing "Everybody Wants to Rule the World" by Tears for Fears.
    • After the scene where the Girls argue over the key:
      Girls: [see the Professor looking down sadly] Oh! [notices the depressed looking Mayor] Oh! [Bellum's face appears for a split second before she turns away] Oh! [camera pans over to reveal a sad Ms Keane] Oh! [the kindergarteners look disappointed, Mitch is pointing his shirt with a smile on his face, and Mac and Bloo appear] Oh! [see the disappointed looking citizens and police] Oh! Oh! [a sentient "O" is seen] Oh!
    • The competition the villains have as they literally tear up the city in search for the key to world domination. It become so ridiculous that the girls just have to stand there gawking at how stupid they act while they fight each other in a Big Ball of Violence. And then comes the go-kart-like race they all have to the Mayor's office.
      • At one point, Bubbles accidentally drops a group of people she and Blossom saved. In response to Bubbles' apology, the group screams, "WHATEVER!" as they fall. When Buttercup forms a tornado to save them and they're sucked in, they exclaim, "OH GREAT! NICE!" When Blossom tosses her group of people into the tornado, her group sarcastically exclaims, "REAL NICE!"
    • Mojo Jojo's reaction when the girls beat him in getting the key in the Mayor's office.
    • Mojo imitating the Dramatic Prairie Dog. Complete with big eyes.
    • The Professor acting like a big goon while they ride in the doom-buggy. Because of this, Blossom has to tell him to behave or else they'll turn around.
    • How much better the world was under Mojo Jojo's rule
  • The final confrontation between Captain Righteous and Lefty and the Ministry of Pain. Especially Righteous' Big "NO!".
  • Pretty much any episode that features The Gangreen Gang. Their petty crimes compared to serious villainy by other villains is enough to make most viewers laugh. The funniest of them all is their appearance in "Schoolhouse Rocked", where the girls defeated them just by playing dodgeball.
    • When Ace loses at an arcade game in "Schoolhouse Rocked".
    Snake: Man, Ace! Bubbles sure kicked your— (Ace punches him) OW! I means good game, Ace.
    • In one episode, Big Billy briefly leaves the gang to help the Girls after they save him from a train. After Blossom yells at him for all the collateral damage he causes, he runs back to the gang, only for them to barely have noticed his absence.
    Ace: Oh hey Billy, we thought you were dead. Snake, deal the cards.
  • From "Nano of the North":
  • The end of "Three Girls and a Monster". Blossom wants to use strategy, Buttercup brute force. What actually works? Bubbles kindly asking the monster to leave.
    Narrator: So Once Again, the Day Is Saved, thanks to Bubbles.
    • Earlier, Blossom and Buttercup argue about whether to beat the monster with brain or brawn and each rush off to do it themselves. Cut to Buttercup bouncing harmless off the monster's chest while Blossom buzzes around its head with a bunch of useless maneuvers - looking a lot like flies - while the monster does nothing but stare at the camera, looking extremely bored. Even better, when the shot pans over to Bubbles watching them fail, the monster is still just staring at the audience.
    • Earlier in the episode, we have a robber losing the gun to his victim and the victim pointing the gun at him when the monster arrives.
  • From "Who, What, When, Where, Why... Who Cares?", the documentary made for the show's 10th anniversary, when explaining Craig McCracken's background:
    Narrator: The city of Los Angeles! With the passing of Craig's father his mother decided to move on to greener, more earthquake-prone pastures.
    • And when discussing McCracken meeting his co-worker and future wife Lauren Faust:
      Narrator: He had to be sure he was thinking with his mind and not just his, uh...
      Mayor: Pickle!
      Narrator: Thank you, Mayor.
    • Also, the Narrator's reaction to how much work goes into one episode.
    • The final part of the documentary, where everyone who was interviewed doing the Narrator's "So Once Again, the Day Is Saved" catchphrase at the end of every episode. After that, McCracken says one last line to wrap up the documentary:
      Craig McCracken: Tom, you're out of a job.
  • Season 1, Episode 2: "Powerpuff Bluff". About a trio of criminals who impersonate the Powerpuff Girls.
    Blossom: (the crooks are threatening to break a priceless porcelain poodle and the girls bust in) Put down the priceless porcelain poodle, you punks!
    Lead Crook: P-p-p-Powerpuffs!
    Blossom: Precisely!
    • Halfway through the episode, a pickup line and the (not-so-sexual) Double Entendre that follows it.
    Bubba: Hey, Sweet Cheeks! What's your sign?
    Sara Bellum: Stop.
    • When the SWAT Team shows up to arrest the Powerpuff Girls, one of them is conspicuously sitting among the kindergarteners using scissors to cut paper.
    • While robbing a bank, the Lead Crook tries to act like the girls, which looks hilarious since it's a grown man in a bad costume doing it.
    • The robbers crashing the Mayor's house, breaking his stuff and punching him, and the Mayor STILL doesn't get that it's not the real Girls. When Ms Bellum tries to explain it to him, he misunderstands and tells the police to arrest the real girls.
  • The Imagine Spots in "Substitute Creature". Especially when combined with the outrageously melodramatic dialog.
    Elmer Sglue: No, Mr. Green! I don't want to be spun!
  • "Powerprof." The whole fight scene where the Professor embarrasses the girls with horrible one-liners and pet names is pretty funny, but what really puts it over the top (and puts Bubbles' face into a paper bag for the rest of the scene) is the Professor casually mentioning to bystanders:
    Professor: My little Bubbles. You'd never guess that only a few months ago she had a bed-wetting problem!
    (the crook Bubbles was carrying off to prison is suddenly dropped to the ground. Whip pan to Bubbles, visibly shocked)
    • One of the scenes prior to this one involves the Professor attempting to work on a experiment, but the girls repeatedly distract him, such as poking him in the arm and placing toys on the table where he works (he doesn't realize it's them doing so, initially).
  • The entirety of the episode "Jewel of the Aisle". "Ridiculous, Lucky Captain Rabbit King! Lucky Captain Rabbit King Nuggets are for the youth!"
    • After the girls tell the crook, who is disguised as the Lucky Captain Rabbit King, that he has to try and trick them before they can let him have the cereal, Buttercup slams the door in his face and tells him not to come back until he has something good. Then...
    (the doorbell rings, and Buttercup answers it)
    Crook: Hey, did you guys just see my twin brother?
    Buttercup: (slams the door in his face again) WEAK!
    • The crook's last plan, to climb down the chimney disguised as Santa, deserves special mention. He tries to stand on a garbage can to climb onto the roof, but ends up stuck in it. Then he tries to stand on a pyramid of garbage cans, but ends up stuck in a garbage can again. Then the crook tries to bounce onto the roof with a trampoline, but lands into a garbage can. After that, the crook lands on the roof in a helicopter, and is attacked by a squirrel in the chimney, which causes him to falls off the roof and into a garbage can (offscreen). He then lands on the roof again in another helicopter.... and then gets stuck in the chimney. The crook is reduced to tears. In the next scene, it's nighttime and it took the fire department to get the crook out. Then Bubbles explains how the crook's ploy was fundamentally doomed to fall.
    Bubbles: Santa, are you crazy? It's summer.
  • Buttercup impersonating Bubbles in "Octi Gone".
  • You're a bad monkey Mojo.
  • "You Snooze, You Loze"
    • Mojo's descent into paranoid insanity:
    Mojo: (Bloodshot eyes and grinning) I know who took my plans...It was you! (Points at bluebird) Well then...It was you! (Points at phone) It was all of you!
  • From "Bubblevicious", the source of a massive traffic jam is revealed to be a dog: "Well I may be able to talk but I sure as heck can't drive!" Followed immediately by:
    Dog: Bubbles.. have mercy..
    Bubbles: Mercy is for the weak!! [WHAM]
    • In the same episode, when Bubbles is in the training simulator, the Professor turns the Danger Level down to 2. She winds up in a normal room, devoid of any monsters. Confused, she looks around, the door opens, and...
      Robot: Boo. I'm gonna get you. Boo. I'm gonna get you. Boo. I'm gonna get you. Boo.
      • Needless to say, Bubbles isn't amused and complains that they turned the simulator down too far again. As she's doing this, the robot proves that despite being Danger Level 2, it still packs a bit of a punch and hits Bubbles In the Back.
  • From "Live and Let Dynamo", the girls are trying to figure out who could possibly piloting their giant robot.
    Blossom: Whoever is in there must be the most ruthless, sadistic, lover of carnage we know.
    Bubbles: Buttercup?
    • When thinking about if it could be Mojo Jojo, the Fantasy!Mojo just rejects the robot as not being advanced enough for him to bother with.
    • The Gangreen Gang imagination spot, which just has them trying to use the robots' equipment to order pizza.
    • The Reveal of who actually is controlling Dynamo. The MAYOR, who accidentally stumbled into the robot and started it.
  • In the episode that subverts the normal Police Are Useless trope, "Cop Out", Mike Brikowski is asked to Turn in Your Badge:
    Mike: You...want my badge?
    Da Chief: Did I stutter?
    (Mike hands over his badge)
    Da Chief: And your sunglasses.
    (Mike hands those over too. He then offers his gun)
    Da Chief: Uh, no, no, you can keep that. Little souvenir for you. That donut's lookin' pretty good, though. (Gets Mike's donut) Awww, yeah.
  • In "The Rowdyruff Boys", when each of the girls gets knocked into the Mayor's window during their first fight with the Rowdyruff Boys, he just casually says hello to each of them all while going on about a pretzel-related holiday he's planning on declaring in the town.
  • There's a lot in "Telephonies" - including Him's terrifying exercise routine - but the best is the Professor, who "wins a million dollars" in a prank call and is told to stay on hold...and does...for the entire episode...without moving at all.
    • This episode ends with the Gangreen Gang getting into a full brawl in the Mayor's office with Mojo Jojo, Fuzzy Lumpkins and Him. The Narrator's reaction just SELLS it. Plus the Mayor's desperate phone call to the Girls while said brawl is occurring.
      Narrator: And so, the day is saved, thanks to... Mojo Jojo... Fuzzy... and Him?
    • Big Billy's prank call is so pitiful that it's hilarious. He so innocently declares his name and that he's making a prank call, so the woman on the other end has to tell him he's not doing a good job. Ace is then forced to take over and drop a quick one-liner before hanging up. The scene gets even funnier if you're watching the Croatian version, where they straight up got away with Ace using profanity in his one-liner.
  • If not the entire Affectionate Parody of Rocky and Bullwinkle in "I See a Funny Cartoon in your Future", then at least the moment when the absolute worst pun of the bunch ("We're not just dealing with a petty criminal - we're dealing with a tarot-ist!") is followed by a long Beat to really let it sink in.
  • While the backlash on the girls due to their doubts on the Fluffy Bunch in "Sweet 'N Sour" is rather heartbreaking, this scene is admittedly funny:
    Bystander: Go home, Powerpuff Girls!
    Bubbles: We ARE home, doodoo brain!
    • Also counts as a Moment of Awesome, seeing how Bubbles is willing to stand up for herself and her sisters when the city starts hating them.
  • In "City of Clipsville", the flashback to the Professor and Ms. Bellum's wedding, especially the punchline:
    Mojo Jojo (in a wedding dress): I have always loved you.
    • From that same episode, the Rowdyruff Boys have mellowed out considerably as teenagers and all seem to be hitting it off pretty well with the Girls... who are now extremely ditzy to the point of mistaking Butch's Escalade (aka, a car) for an escalator. Even Boomer thinks this is ridiculous.
      • Brick's deadpan Aside Glance after dealing with Blossom for a few minutes is on par with the monsters mentioned above.
  • Mojo and Him fighting over who is the better father for the Boys in "Custody Battle" is nothing short of priceless.
  • Princess decides to hatch up a plan to destroy the Powerpuff Girls with Mojo Jojo. She tells him this from the bottom of his mountain, shouting at the top of her voice in the middle of a crowded day.
    Princess: I DO, YOU BUFOON!
    Princess: I SAID "BUFOON"! BU-FOOOON!!
  • The episode "Silent Treatment". Parodies and references to old black-and-white cartoons abound!
  • At the end of "Members Only", when the Girls prove themselves to the members of the AWSM by defeating Mascumax, the way Mascumax goes on as he amscrays in humiliation makes him sound like a bully who has gotten a heaping dose of his own medicine.
  • In "Simian Says," Mojo kidnaps the narrator and thus gains total control over the show. The whole thing starts with Mojo going off on a rant about the City of Townsville's name and how it being somehow a City, a Town and a Village is redundant and annoying, and gets funnier from there. Mojo makes the girls commit crimes around town and try to kill each other, which becomes a lot funnier due to the girls' reactions - they have no idea what's going on, so they just kind of go with it. Then at the end, the girls discover Mojo in his narrator booth and drag him out looking very pissed off.
    Buttercup: In the stomach or in the face?
    Mojo (sheepish): How about an option of the third type... heh... (gets curb stomped off screen)
    • Later, even though they've won the episode can't end until they rescue the narrator... who can't actually close out the "The Day Is Saved" segment until he gets a ride home.
  • "Shut The Pup Up' involves the Talking Dog witnessing a crime, and the girls taking care of him until he feels well enough to tell what happened. The Dog, however, is blunt, tactless and full of lampshade hangings and cheerfully backhanded compliments - which makes most of his dialogue (and the irritation of everyone who has to deal with him) extremely funny. Particularly how chipper he is when saying them:
    (To The Professor) So, your greatest invention was an accident, huh?
    (To Buttercup): You sure don't throw like a girl, which from lookin' at you makes at lot of sense!
    (To Blossom): Did anyone ever tell you pinkeye is actually a disease?
    What? What did I say?
  • The ending of "Just Another Manic Mojo"; Mojo, after trying and failing to zap the Girls with his laser, gets fed up and gives them their baseball. The whole episode pretty much qualifies as a CMOF.
    Mojo: Here! Here! Here! Get out! Get out! Get out!
    Bubbles: Thank you.
    Buttercup: Thank you.
    Blossom: Thank you.
    Mojo: Curses...curses...curses...
    Narrator: Next day! Next day! Next day!
    Mojo: Now to catch up on the news that has been reported in this paper- What?! "Mojo Jojo saves the day? Gives Powerpuffs' ball?" CURSES!!
  • In "Makes Zen To Me", Buttercup and her master have this exchange while the latter is injured.
    Master: The water rushing down the mountainside washes away impurities and replenishes the land. You must be like water, grasshopper.
    Buttercup: What?
    Master: KICK HIS BUTT!
  • "Mama wuvs you."
  • This exchange in the entirely-rhyming "Dream Scheme".
    Professsor: No buts, and I mean it.
    Bubbles: Does anyone want a peanut? (rimshot)
  • The episode "Speed Demon" was 95% Nightmare Fuel, but at the end when the Girls are talking about the Bad Future, you can hear Blossom saying "...And Ms. Bellum had warts!"
    • The Narrator's reaction to the episode?
      Man, I'm never gonna drive over 55 again!
  • In "Birthday Bash", after Him's pinata trap fails (and the other villains call Him out on it), Him tries to save face by claiming his real plan was to give everyone cavities from eating too much candy. None of the other villains buy it.
  • The ending narration to "Boogie Frights" has to be heard to be believed.
  • Not in the series itself but original pilot, Whoopass Stew ("The Whoopass Girls"). The narrator isn't being remotely serious and it's easy to tell. The introduction speech is hilariously, in that it emphasizes how the girls are adorable yet badass and feels like more of a joke than the series proper.
    Sugar, spice, and everything nice. These were the ingredients used to create the perfect little girl. But Professor Utonium accidentally added a can of whoopass to the concoction.
  • The 2014 special Dance Pantsed has a few.
    • Bubbles deciding that she will pretend to be Winston Churchill.
    • When Bubbles sees Mojo Jojo's "Dance Pants R-Evil-ution" game, Blossom and Buttercup appear as two shoulder angels. Bubbles initially thinks that her sisters are tiny and dead.
    • Buttercup, the tough tomboy girl, saying that Corgi dogs are cute.
    • Professor Utonium assumed that Mojo Jojo's evil plan was to use the kidnapped badger, opera singer, and mathematician to steal Chemical X so he could use it to gain powers. It turns out that Mojo was actually planning to take over Townsville by forming a softball team. Like his previous schemes, it doesn't work.
  • In "A Made Up Story", a villainess called Mask Scara is painting everybody in town with trashy makeup, including the villains. When she goes for HIM however, there is a deeply awkward moment where the two of them just sort of stare at eachother. Then Mask Scara strikes after all... and can apparently only turn HIM more trashy by literally painting him like a clown.
  • At one point in "What's' The Big Idea", a bunch of protesters can be seen in the background.. with signs saying things like "Sad as Heck", "Boo Again" and "No Like".
  • "Burglar Alarmed" is pretty hilarious in and of itself, since its very premise involves a burglar attempting to rob the Powerpuff Girls, but there are some specific moments worth listing.
    • While sleeping, Professor Utonium says "cabbage" and "kumquat" with a silly grin on his face.
    • When the burglar finally figures out that the Powerpuff Girls have superpowers, he threatens to wake up the Professor by screaming into his ear, adding that when he wakes up, he will be really mad. Ultimately, the still-sleeping Professor Utonium knocks the burglar out with a punch.
    • At the very end of the episode, the burglar then decides to rob Mojo Jojo's volcano lair. The Narrator says it best.
      Narrator: I feel sorry for this guy. I really do.
  • "Meat Fuzzy Lumpkins":
    • Fuzzy's mortified reaction to the Powerpuff Girls rejecting his meat jam.
    • After the girls ask Ms. Keane if they can leave to save the world, a random boy promptly informs Ms. Keane that he has to save the world, too.
    • Fuzzy learning the hard way that he shouldn't mess with Bubbles' hair.
      • The non-sequitur of Fuzzy merrily walking down the street and Bubbles tripping him. It cuts to a reaction shot of of Blossom and Buttercup gasping in horror.
    Fuzzy: It's, um, very becoming?
    (Bubbles charges at Fuzzy with tears in her eyes. Righteous beatdown ensues.)
  • In "Crime 101", the Powerpuff Girls don't take any of the Amoeba Boys' attempts at being evil seriously and even refer to them as "cute".
  • "Mo' Linguish", in which Mojo Jojo is forced to teach English as Community Service and soon infects the entire city with his Department of Redundancy Department speech. A few highlights:
    • The Mayor trying to call the girls about a bank robbery:
    Mayor: There is a stealing of sorts happening at the place where money is given and taken, that is to say, deposited and withdrawn, and sometimes redistributed and loaned, but currently, the taker is taking that which is not his, thus performing an act of illegality, which could result in incarceration within the confines of a penal facility, that is to say, prison, jail, hoosegow, et cetera.
    • When they get to the bank:
    Robber: The amount which I want to withdraw is not that from any bank account which I hold within a bank; in other words, I wish to take money that does not belong to me, but is instead in the ownership of others who have worked hard to gather funds for their future rainy days.
    Bank teller: But what I am asking you is, do you have an account which I can access, and, if so, what are the numerical digits for me to properly type upon the keyboard to tap into the computer system which allows me permission into all the fund-related requests.
    Robber: And what you are failing to understand is that I do not have said accounts since I am not a patron of this fine establishment except to take from it that which is not mine.
    • After the girls find out Mojo is responsible for it:
    Bubbles: Mojo has managed to bring Townsville to a complete standstill, by having all of the people speak in the most lengthy of questions, and redundant of answers. Thus nothing can be asked or answered without the verbosity of words, causing the city to come to a permanent and most painful halt, furthermore―
    Buttercup/Blossom: Bubbles!
    Bubbles: Sorry!
    • After they try and fail to reprogram a couple of citizens:
    Buttercup: Aw, this isn't going to work!
    Bubbles: Certainly not, if our wishes to remedy this situation which is currently lacking closure―
    Buttercup/Blossom: Bubbles!
    Blossom: Someone has to re-teach them.
    Buttercup: But do we know whose English is good enough to reverse the effects of Mo' Linguish and retrain all these people to speak properly, thus eliminating the circular pattern in which they are speaking? [beat] Darn it! Now I'm doing it!
    • How could we forget the absolute best part? After a moment of speculating, the girls question who could possibly help rehabilitate all of Townsville and help them speak normally again. Blossom declares that there's only one person in Townsville that she can think of. It's none other than Talking Dog
  • In the episode "Slave The Day" when Big Billy "reads" the Powerpuff Girls a bedtime story. It has to be heard to be appreciated, and Blossom's annoyed reaction really sells it.
    • It's also funny in the same episode when Buttercup is working out and using his stomach for a heavy bag (and he's laughing about it entire time).
  • In one episode Mrs. Keene has an announcement and the girls try to guess what it is. Ms. Keane's reaction is priceless.
    Ms. Keane: Children I have big news.
    Blossom: You're getting a promotion?
    Bubbles: You're getting married?
    Buttercup: You're getting fired?
    Ms. Keane: No, no, (annoyed) and no.
  • "Tough Love" is overall a dark episode, but there are stil some funny moments. For example:
    • The Narrator getting annoyed at the girls in a Black Comedy way:
    Narrator: Aw, for cryin' out loud, would you three shut up for once?! Always griping and moaning about something! Sheesh, you give me a headache!
    • Him having a rubber duck named Mr. Quackers.
  • One Cartoon Network bumper had Mojo Jojo at a zoo, shouting at the silverback, "You are not the alpha male! I Mojo Jojo am the..." Then the silverback stands up at full height and he stops. "...alpha..." At the end, he tosses a pebbles and mumbles sadly, "It isn't fair he gets all the girls."
  • In the episode "Buttercrush", Buttercup sneaks out to hang out with the Gangreen Gang.
    • It's funny with Snake, being hit alternately by Ace and Buttercup and bobbing back and forth like a punching bag.
    • Ace and Buttercup, bouncing up and down on Big Billy's (who's also laughing) stomach, using it for a trampoline.
    • The Gang pounding on a junked car. Billy punches at the hood, Arturo jumps on the roof, and Snake fools around behind the wheel. Pan to the rear end, where Ace is getting ready to hit the car with a bat. He does so a couple of times and then offers a chance to Buttercup, who is standing next to him. She jumps in front of Snake, holding the bat; he tries desperately to wave her off, but she pays no mind. She hits the car; the others watch as it sails over the horizon, carrying Snake with it.
  • The Gangreen Gang getting superpowers in "Power Lunch", after looting a convenience store and getting blasted by the Girls' heat vision. Each member got powers based on what kind of junk food they had been binging on:
    • Ace becomes An Ice Person after eating a ton of soft-serve ice cream right from the machine, as well as popsicles and fudgesicles.
    • Snake becomes a Rubber Man from eating a ton of stretchy candy such as gum, taffee, etc.
    • Grubber can make superpowered belches from eating a lot of starchy snacks such as hot dogs and potato chips.
    • Arturo gets Super Speed from drinking a ton of convenience store coffee.
    • Finally, Big Billy eays a ton of hard candy and becomes a rock. Not a Rock Monster like The Thing, just a regular boulder, albeit with his hair and mouth on it. He can still somehow move though, but only off-screen.
    • After almost beating the girls in a fight, the Gang is Brought Down to Normal when the irradiated junk food in their stomachs finishes passing through their system, and they end up with a Potty Emergency mid-fight.
  • In "Forced Kin", after the Powerpuff Girls and Mojo Jojo fail to stop an alien creature from destroying the world, Mojo Jojo goes absolutely ape for being outsmarted and for having his ideas stolen by the alien. This leads to Mojo giving the giant robotic alien an old-fashioned beat up with his bare first, knocking it off with a french loaf, and pulling back its leg, which makes the alien scream in pain like a little girl. The most indestructible enemy up to this point being defeated in such a way is hilarious, as is Mojo's denial that he is a hero.
