The Powerpuff Girls is an American animated television series about three kindergarten-aged girls who have superpowers. Created by animator Craig McCracken, the program was produced by Hanna-Barbera until 2001 when Cartoon Network Studios took over production for Cartoon Network. The show has been nominated for an Emmy Award five times, in the category Outstanding Achievement in Animation.

Overview

The Powerpuff Girls revolves around the adventures of Blossom, Bubbles, and Buttercup. . Professor Utonium wanted to make "the perfect little girl" by using "sugar... spice... and everything nice." However, the accidental addition of Chemical X into the mixture created three girls instead, each having superpowers but whose individual personality was dominated by one of the ingredients ("sugar" for Bubbles, "spice" for Buttercup, and "everything nice" for Blossom). The plot of a typical episode is some humorous variation of standard superhero and tokusatsu fare, with the girls using their powers to defend their town from villains and giant monsters. In addition, the girls also have to deal with normal issues young children face, such as bed wetting or dependence on a security blanket. Episodes often contain more or less hidden references to older (circa 1950s to 1980s) pop culture.

The show mainly takes place in the fictional city of Townsville, USA. Townsville is depicted as a major American city, with a cityscape consisting of several major skyscrapers. The physical location of Townsville has never been determined. Cities like Los Angeles, New York City, Seattle, Paris, London, and Tokyo have been shown throughout the series.

The show has a highly stylized, minimalistic visual look, reminiscent of Hanna-Barbera's previous limited animation including The Huckleberry Hound Show, Yogi Bear, and The Flintstones. In his review of The Powerpuff Girls Movie, movie critic Bob Longino of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution said that "the intricate drawings emanate 1950s futuristic pizazz like a David Hockney scenescape", and that the show is "one of the few American creations that is both gleeful pop culture and exquisite high art".[1]

The original 79 episodes were hand-drawn and produced at Rough Draft Studios in South Korea[2], but for the 2009 special episode The Powerpuff Girls Rule!!! was animated with Adobe Flash at Cartoon Network Studios.[3] The show's animation director was Genndy Tartakovsky (Dexter's Laboratory, Samurai Jack), who also directed many episodes himself.

James L. Venable composed the opening theme of the series and Scottish band Bis performed the ending theme song, as played during the credits. The opening theme is based around the Amen Break sample.

The show has come under criticism for its rather excessive violence (including images of characters gushing blood from their mouths when hit), and for what have been perceived as morally questionable actions on part of the main characters, such as sometimes using more brutal force than necessary.[4]

History

Craig McCracken, a student of California Institute of the Arts, created The Whoopass Girls in 1992 in his short film The Whoopass Stew! A Sticky Situation. Spike and Mike's Sick and Twisted Festival of Animation selected the short in 1994; McCracken submitted it to Hanna-Barbera's innovative What A Cartoon! Show shorts program (eventually to be produced for Cartoon Network as "The Powerpuff Girls in: Meat Fuzzy Lumpkins" as part of World Premiere Toons) while working on Dexter's Laboratory.[5] Announcer Ernie Anderson, the narrator of the pilot episode, died in 1997 before the show became a series. "Meat Fuzzy Lumpkins" first aired in 1995, followed by a second short, "Crime 101", a year later.

The Powerpuff Girls TV debut in 1998 was the highest rated premiere in Cartoon Network's history. The series consistently scored the highest rating each week for the network across a wide range of demographics—from young children to adults.[6] In October 2000, Cartoon Network credited the Powerpuff Girls for its Friday night prime time ratings win among cable networks.[7] By 2001, merchandising based on The Powerpuff Girls encompassed everything from T-shirts, toys, and video games to lunchboxes and dishware.[6] Concerning the Powerpuff Girls success, Craig McCracken has stated, "I thought it would get on Cartoon Network and college kids would watch it and there would be a few random T-shirts out there in the rave scene or in record shops. But I had no idea that it would take off to this extent."[6]

In April 2005, plans for an Japanese anime version, Demashita! Powerpuff Girls Z were announced, and the series premiered in Japan the following year with 52 half-hour episodes, airing each Saturday from 1 July to 23 December 2006 and 6 January to 30 June 2007. The series deviated considerably from its American predecessor in terms of style, storyline, and characterization. Although an English version has since been produced, Cartoon Network in the United States currently has no plans to air the adaptation.

In August 2008, McCracken revealed on his DeviantArt account [2], as had been announced in that year's Comic Con, that he was working with Cartoon Network on a new half-hour Powerpuff Girls special to celebrate the series' 10th-year anniversary. The special aired on the Pan-Euro version of Cartoon Network on November 29, 2008 on the Powerpuff Girls Birthday Marathon, and in the US on January 19, 2009 on North America Cartoon Network, part of its PPG 10th Anniversary marathon.

Characters

As depicted in the opening sequence of each episode, the Powerpuff Girls were created by Professor Utonium in an attempt to create the "perfect little girl" using a mixture of sugar, spice, and everything nice. However, he accidentally spilled a mysterious substance called "Chemical X" into the mixture, granting the girls superpowers commonly including flight, super strength, super speed, limited invulnerability, x-ray vision, super senses, heat vision, and energy projection. The three girls all have oval-shaped heads, abnormally large eyes, stubby arms and legs, and lacking noses, ears, fingers, and flat feet with toes. They wear dresses that match the colors of their eyes, as well as white pantyhose and black Mary Janes. The closing theme to the cartoon, performed by Bis, includes the lyrics Blossom, commander and the leader; Bubbles, she is the joy and the laughter; Buttercup, she's the toughest fighter. This offers a nutshell description of the three Powerpuff girls' personalities.

Blossom

Blossom (voiced by Cathy Cavadini) is "the smart one" and self-proclaimed leader of the Powerpuff Girls. Her signature color is pink, and she has long orange hair with a red bow. She was named for having spoken freely and honestly to the Professor shortly after her creation. She is often seen as the most mature, level-headed and composed member of the group, although she can at times be fussy, overbearing, vain and too analytical. She tends to "parent" Bubbles and Buttercup, and often tries to play peacemaker between the two if they fight (though she is very quick to argue with Buttercup). In the episode "Ice Sore," she showed the ability to blow ice, and at the end, blow fire. However, even though Blossom said her ice breath was "all used up", she has been seen using it frequently in later episodes.

Bubbles

Bubbles (voiced by Tara Strong in the series and by Kath Soucie in the What-a-Cartoon! episodes) is "the cute one". Her signature color is light blue, and she has short blond hair in two pigtails. She was named for her cute and bubbly personality. She tends to act like the baby of the group, despite being the same age. Her best friend is a stuffed octopus doll she calls "Octi". She exhibits the ability to both understand foreign languages (Spanish, Japanese) and communicate with various animals (squirrels, cats, monsters). She will always stand up for (and cuddle with) animals except cockroaches which she (along with her sisters) finds "icky". She displays and is defined by innocence, playfulness and gentle demeanor, having a tendency to be naïve, ditzy, submissive, shy, and sensitive. She is also more loving to her father figure, Professor Utonium. That leads to her often being regarded, by friends and foes alike, as the group's weak link. She can become very independent and aggressive when pushed, however, and among the girls, she is most feared by Mojo Jojo after having single-handedly taken him down in a fit of rage in the episode "Bubblevicious". She also loves to color, draw, and sing.

Buttercup

Buttercup (voiced by Elizabeth Daily) is "the tough one". Her signature color is light green, and she has short black hair in a flip. She was named because "Buttercup" begins with the letter "B" like her sisters, much to her chagrin. She is a tomboy and has a very short temper. Sometimes her aggression gets the better of her, making her reckless and stubborn. She possesses a mean and somewhat vindictive streak not shared by her sisters. She has, however, shown a softer side in several episodes. For example, in the episode "Cover Up", she had a soft green blanket that she was obsessed with that she would hug that gave her the confidence to be a better fighter, and she is quite protective over her sisters. She hates baths and loves getting dirty. Interestingly, Buttercup is the only Powerpuff Girl without a unique power. However, for not being special, she is the toughest. In "Nuthin' Special", it is revealed that Buttercup is the only Powerpuff Girl (and Townsville citizen) who can curl her tongue.

Episodes

A total of 79 half-hour broadcasts have been made, one of which has never been shown in the USA and one which aired during the 10th Anniversary special in 2009. Most broadcasts consist of two episodes, while others contain a single episode that spans the entire half hour. The show spanned six seasons. In addition, a self-titled feature film was released in 2002, and an hour-long Christmas special was released on DVD in 2003. One episode in production, "Deja View," was never finished. A special titled The Powerpuff Girls Rule!!! aired during the 10th Anniversary special on Cartoon Network on January 19, 2009 (although it aired before in Europe and Asia).

Awards

The show has been nominated for an Emmy five times in 1999, 2000, 2001, 2004, & 2005 for "Outstanding Achievement in Animation". In 1999 the show was nominated for the award for episode 1.09 - "Bubblevicious" & "The Bare Facts". In 2000 & 2005 the show also won Emmys, both juried for non-nominated selections.[8] The show has also been nominated for an Annie Award nine times, winning it twice.[8] And in 2001, the show was nominated for the Blimp Award for Favorite Cartoon at the 2001 Kids' Choice Awards.[8]

Music CDs

There have also been three officially released CD soundtracks, one entitled Heroes and Villains, featuring original songs about the Powerpuff Girls characters by a number of artists, including the New Wave group Devo. Another entitled City of Soundsville featuring Electronica style character themes and a third CD entitled Power Pop, which borrows heavily from Heroes and Villains.

[Cut to a park; the Ameoba boys are standing on the grass next to a “Stay off the Grass” sign; the Girls are playing, ignoring them]
Bossman: No matter what unthinkable crime we commit, it’s never good enough for those stinkin’ Powerpuffs.
[Back to the Boys]
Bossman: Oh, sure, we try to be tough. We try to be "hardened criminals". But all we ever hear is...
[Cut to them and the Girls in the park again]
Blossom: Bad guys, shmad guys.
Bubbles & Buttercup: You’re cute!

Powerpuff Girls: Not so fast --- oh.
Blossom: It’s just you, Amoeba Boys.
Bossman: Whaddaya mean "just us"?! I’ll have you know we were just about to comit the crime of the century! So why don't you just watch? Come on!
[The Amoeba Boys cross the street, and then come back.]

Powerpuff Girls: What was that?
Bossman: Jaywalking! Crosswalk over there, a crosswalk over there, and us right through the middle! NOW LET'S FIGHT!
Blossom: Aww, you guys are cute, but you'll have to do better than that.

Narrator: You can't talk to me like that!
Ace: (Over phone) How 'bout this? I THINK YOU STINK! I CAN SMELL YA OVER THE PHONE!

Him: [to Mojo Jojo on the phone, demonic voice] Mojo! It's me - [effeminate voice] Him!
Mojo Jojo: Oh! Yes, sir! What is it?
Him: [demonic] You wouldn't believe what just happened!
Mojo Jojo: The Powerpuff Girls just broke in unexpected?
Him: WHAT?! How did you know?!
Mojo Jojo: The same thing happened to me and Fuzzy Lumpkins. He's on the other line.
Him: Well, put him on!
[Mojo puts Fuzzy on the line]

Dear Powerpuff Girls,

Just Another Manic Mojo [1.11a]

Mojo Jojo: Now to have some breakfast!
[He finds only one egg in the fridge]
Mojo Jojo: ONE EGG LEFT?! For a nutritious breakfast, TWO eggs is the minimum requirement! And I have but ONE, which is ONE shy of TWO! And it is TWO that I need! Curses! I must immediately purchase some eggs, for I need to have breakfast, and without the eggs I cannot have the breakfast that I so require!
[He storms down the long staircase that runs to the bottom of the volcano, then suddenly skids to a halt]
Mojo Jojo: [pats his outift in panic] I have forgotten my wallet! Curses!

[pause]
Bubbles: [yelling] PROFESSOR! There’s a stranger on the phone!
Professor: [picking up the phone] Hello, Mr. Stranger, what can I do for you?
Mojo Jojo: Oh. [Clears Throat] Ah, hi, I’m calling from Townsville Community College and I’m doing a report on the Powerpuff Girls, and I was wondering, what exactly are those little girls made of?
Professor: Ah, oh, well, the Powerpuff Girls. Oh, let’s see now, eight cups of sugar, a pinch of spice, one tablespoon of everything nice, and, now this one’s important: accidentally add a drop of Chemical X. And voila!
Mojo Jojo: That’s it? I mean, wow, thanks.
Professor: I also have a great recipe for pound---
[Mojo hangs up]

[At the prison cafeteria line]
Mojo Jojo: I’ll have the escargot, please.

Mojo Jojo: Let’s see, snips and snails and a puppy dog’s tail . . . all that leaves is Chemical X. There must be something around here with that potency. Aha! [it’s a stinky toilet] Yes, definitely Chemical X!

[After creating three Puff-esque boys, Mojo hugs them in a fatherly manner]
Mojo Jojo: Ah, my children!
Brick: [grabs him threateningly] Hands off! Who do you think you are anyway, Pops?!
Mojo Jojo: Why, yes, I am your father, children!
Boomer: Hey! We ain't no babies!
Rowdyruff Boys: WE'RE THE ROWDYRUFF BOYS!
Boomer: Boomer!
Brick: Brick!
Butch: Butch!
Brick: We're here to kick some butt! And since yours is the only one around, we're gonna start with you!
Mojo Jojo: Oh, no, boys. You don’t want to kick my butt; my butt is as rotten as yours. What you want are butts settled on the throne of justice!
The Rowdyruff Boys: Yeah!
Mojo Jojo: Butts planted in the soil of nobility!
The Rowdyruff Boys: Yeah!
Mojo Jojo: Butts nestled between the pillars of peace and love! The butts you want to kick are the butts of the Powerpuff Girls!
The Rowdyruff Boys: Let's get 'em!

Brick: Hey! What's wrong with you girls?! You're supposed to start crying when we hit ya!
Boomer: Yeah!
Blossom: What are you guys, new?
Bubbles: Yeah! We're the Powerpuff Girls!
Buttercup: And it takes a lot more than a couple of cheap shots to make us cry!
Brick: [smirking] Well, then. I guess we'll just have to serve it up...

The Mayor: And furthermore, every Wednesday shall be pretzel day! [Blossom is thrown against the window of his office] Hello Blossom! [She slides down] Goodbye, Blossom. [Bubbles is thrown against the window of his office] Hello Bubbles! [She slides down] Goodbye, Bubbles. [Buttercup is thrown against the window of his office] Hello Buttercup! [She slides down] Goodbye, Buttercup. What sort of pretzels do you suppose the girls like, Bavarian, or tiny twists?
Miss Bellum: Sir, I think the girls may be in trouble.
The Mayor: Whatever makes you say that?

[After the Rowdyruff Boys zoom past the Powerpuff Girls, the exhaust leaves the Girls weakened and coughing]
Butch: Good thing we had those burritos for lunch!
Boomer: [laughs] Yeah, dude!
Brick: [snickers] Word! [fiercely] NOW LET'S FINISH THOSE SISSIES!!!

Miss Bellum: What do little boys fear more than anything in the world?
Bubbles: Bugs!
Buttercup: No, Bubbles, that’s what you’re afraid of.
Bubbles: Oh, yeah.

[After the Girls kiss the Rowdyruff Boys, destroying them]
Mojo Jojo: Curse you again, Powerpuff Girls! I'll be back, but next time I will not be defeated! It is you who will be defeated! And when you are defeated, it is you who will have lost!
Narrator: Oh, shut up, Mojo!

Blossom: I kinda liked kissing.
Bubbles: Yeah! [she and Blossom giggle]
Blossom: How about you, Buttercup?
[Buttercup is spitting in disgust. Blossom and Bubbles laugh]

Season 2

Los Dos Mojos [2.6b]

[Bubbles is revealed to be wearing Mojo Jojo's clothes]
Blossom, Buttercup: Bubbles?!
Narrator: Bubbles?!
Mayor: Bubbles?!
Talking Dog: Bubbles?!
Crowd: Bubbles?!
Mojo Jojo: [in a towel] Bubbles.
Bubbles: [in a Mojo-like manner] I am not Bubbles! Bubbles is not who I am! I am the one, the only, single solitary doer of dastardly deeds! Purveyor of pestilence! Interloper of lawlessness! Menace to mankind! I am bad! I am evil! I am Mojo Jojo! Hahahahahahahaha!
Mojo Jojo: [annoyed] I do not talk like that! The way I communicate is much different! I do not reiterate, repeat, reinstate the same thing over and over again! I am clear! Concise! To-the-point! I--
[Buttercup starts beating him up]
Buttercup: Take this! And that! And some of these! And one of those!
Blossom: What kind of evil have you bestowed upon our sister?!
Mojo Jojo: You’ve got to be kidding. I'm wet! I'm naked! Your sister is wearing my clothes! And you think this is all some kind of evil plot... TO RULE THE WORLD AS A SOGGY CHIMP IN MY BIRTHDAY SUIT?!?!?

Mojo Bubbles: [after Mojo offers that they both work as a team and take over the world] I am not Bubbles! Bubbles is not my name! For the name Bubbles is not the correct name to address me by, because 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! Hahahahahahahaha!
Mojo Jojo: Oh, SHUT UP!!!
[He hits her around the head with a girder, then reclaims his helmet]
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!!!

Cover Up [2.11b]

[holding a towel to her cheek]
Buttercup: I am a good fighter. I am a good fighter. I am a good fighter.

Buttercup: NO!! I NEED MY BLANKET!

Speed Demon [2.12a]

Him: [laughs effeminately] Don't you know the faster you go, time slows down? Your time stopped for fifty years whilst you were out racing around.
Blossom: I know that voice!
Him: Seconds, minutes, hours, days and nights all crawl by on hands and knees as you race the speed of light.
[Him has now emerged. The Girls gasp in horror]
Bubbles: Look!
Him: Yes! Coming back now? Remember?
[Buttercup remembers her dare to her sisters: "So - which of you slowpokes wants to race me home?"]
Buttercup: No!
Him: Yes! As you raced through time, [demonic] the whole world went to HECK!
Blossom: You lie! Don't believe him, Girls!
[The Girls severely attack and batter Him - but he seems totally unaffected]
Him: [effeminate] Are you finished?
Buttercup: No, but you are!
Blossom: Don't you know you can never beat us?!
Him: Beat you? Why, girls! Don't you see? [demonic] I've already WON!!!!!
[He transforms into a larger, more terrifying version of himself]
Him: The beauty lies in the pain, because it's your fault for leaving! All I did was take over! It was easy!

Season 3

Child Fearing [3.2b]

[Mojo Jojo is forced to tell the Girls a bedtime story]
Mojo Jojo: Very well, then. I will tell you my favourite story... ABOUT THE GREATEST CONQUEROR WHO EVER LIVED! Napoleon! [he envisions himself as Napoleon] He was a mighty man, feared by all who looked up to him. Using his genius and his loyal army, he conquered all of Europe, then all of Russia, and finally the whole world. The end.
Powerpuff Girls: BORING! [Mojo's vision is shattered]
Blossom: Your story's all wrong! Napoleon's 1807 seizure of Portugal and the subsequent Rebellion by the Spaniards cost France over 300,000 casualties, untold sums of money, and contributed to the eventual weakening of the Napoleonic Empire! [whacks Mojo with her pillow]
Bubbles: And your analysis on the Invasion of Russia is also incorrect! Napoleon's invasion of 1812 resulted in massive casualties of his troops, due to starvation and inclement conditions, and ended in a disastrous retreat from Moscow with his army defeated! [whacks Mojo with her pillow]
Buttercup: Yeah, dummy! And when he returned to France, the Allied Nations of Europe united against him, which led to his eventual defeat at the Battle of Waterloo on June 18, 1815, whereafter he was exiled to the island of St. Helena, where he died a miserable death from stomach cancer on May 5, 1821, stupid! [whacks Mojo with her pillow]

Season 4

Super Friends [4.4]

[The girls introduce their new friend Robin to Professor Utonium]

Robin: That's okay, Professor - I was an accident, too!

Princess: Hey girls, let me be a PowerPuff Girl for a day and you could ride in daddy's limo with me to school!
Blossom: No thanks Princess. We rather walk with our new friend Robin to school.
Princess: Very well then. You obviously don't know a thing about first class travel...... How 'bout five bucks?
Blossom: Would that be; five bucks to ride in your limo, or five bucks to be a PowerPuff Girl?

Buttercup:You hired Mojo to try and destroy us!
Bubbles:You gave us a BOMB for our birthday!

The Boys are Back in Town [5.8]

[The Rowdyruff Boys have been resurrected (complete with meaner-looking hairstyles)]
Blossom: The Rowdyruff Boys?!
Buttercup: But that's impossible!
Bubbles: We blew you guys up!
Brick: [smirking] Yeah? Well, you can't stop a good thing, babe!
[The Girls suddenly start to snicker]
Brick: Stop laughing! What are you laughing at?!
Blossom: [mocking] Ooooh(!) Look who's back with mean hair(!)
Bubbles: [mocking] Oh, whatever shall we do?
Buttercup: [mocking] How can we defeat their scary new hairdos?
[Boomer naively inspects his hair, while Butch twitches, eager to fight. The Girls continue to laugh, and Brick gets more and more irritated until he finally snaps.]
Brick: SILEEEEEEEEEEENCE!!!!! [the Girls stop] You stupid, wimpy, lame-o girls talk too much!
Blossom: "STUPID"?!
Buttercup: "WIMPY"?!
Bubbles: "LAME-O"?!
Brick: You girls just got lucky last time. This time there's no way you're gonna beat my boys!
Butch: Butch!
Boomer: Boomer!
Brick: And me, Brick!
[Boomer sees a fly buzzing over his head, and playfully swats at it]
Brick: [annoyed] Pay attention!
Bubbles: [giggling] Are you guys sure you're ready for another beating?
Boomer: [trying to sound tough] 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?!
Buttercup: Enough! Talk is cheap! Let's do this!
Butch: [snickers dementedly] This is gonna be fun!

Blossom: All right, girls. I think we know what we have to do. Let's give 'em some sugar!
Bubbles: [eagerly] Ooh, ooh, I want the blonde! I think he's cute!
Buttercup: Man, you're weird!

Brick: Your cootie-kisses only make us bigger!
Boomer: Stronger!
Butch: And tougher!

[Him interrupts the fight between the Powerpuff Girls and Rowdyruff Boys]
Him: [effeminate voice] Hello, girls!
Powerpuff Girls: [gasp] Him!
Him: So nice to see you again! How's things? Not so good? Having a little boy trouble, hmm? Or should I say... [demonic voice] BIG boy trouble?!
[The Boys - now huge after being kissed by the Girls several times - land behind Him]
Him: [effeminate] Hello, Boys. [demonic] You're doing just fine. [to the Girls, effeminate] So, how does it feel, Girls, to know defeat is just around the corner... [demonic] and victory for me is at hand?!
Blossom: So you're behind this, Him! What did you do to make our kisses powerless?!
Him: [effeminate] Oh, that. That's my little secret. You see, I realised that the Boys' only weakness [demonic] was your pathetic little kisses. And since I [effeminate] knew you would resort to that, I added a little something extra: a cootie vaccination! "Circle, Circle, Dot, Dot; now you have a cootie shot!" [laughs] I got the spell off the Internet.

Brick: You calling us STUPID?!
Boomer: We'll show you stupid! [Boomer crosses his arms and smiles proudly. Brick slaps him]

Bubble Boy [5.9b]

Brick: [he and his brothers drank 3 cans of soda] Man, beating people for fun is really fun!
Boomer: Yeah! Beating people for fun is really fun! [Brick throws a can in Boomer's face] Ow!
Brick: Dude! That's the dumbest thing you said all DAY!
Boomer: Well you said the same thing!
Brick: Yeah, but it sounds COOLER coming out of my mouth!

Boomer: I don't care what they say; I'm not as dumb as I look.

Bubbles: What are we going to do?

[Bubbles is dressed as Boomer]

Bubbles: Well, how do I look?
Boomer: [Boomer is now in his underwear] Boy, do you look dumb!
Blossom: Need we say more?

Blossom: Gee, Professor, you sure outdid yourself with that containment ray.
Professor: I'll say! Once again, I have no idea what I did!

Bubbles: [as Boomer] Uh, hi! It's me, Boomer, your brother!
Brick: We know you're our brother. We're not as stupid as you!

Brick: I know, let's punch each other in the face until someone says, “Hey, stop punching me in the face.” You first, Boomer. [punches Bubbles, who is posing as Boomer.]
[Brick and Butch laugh; Bubbles gets teary-eyed]
Bubbles: Heh, funny. Okay, my turn.
Brick: Nah, I'm sick of that game.

[After Bubbles sprays "Flowers are pretty... dumb!" on a wall]
Butch: For a second there, I thought you were turning girly on us.
Brick: Yeah! And "dum-buh"? Geez, Boomer, if you're gonna do graffiti, at least learn spell the words right! Sheesh, talk about "dum-buh".
Butch: Yeah! What a "dum-bee"!
[Brick & Butch laugh]

Professor: [after Bubbles captures the Rowdyruff Boys on her own] Bubbles! I could hardly contain myself hiding in the closet.

Professor: [after Bubbles apologizes] That's alright Bubbles. I'm sorry you had to eat a cockroach!
Bubbles: [who is still posing as Boomer] That's okay, it tasted like CHICKEN!

Season 6

Custody Battle [6.2a]

Brick: You mean "we can blow up things and stuff?"
Mojo: Yes.
Brick: Anything?
Mojo Jojo: Anything.
[Him prepares to blow up the sun, destroying the Earth in the process]
Him: Splendidly evil, isn't it?
Mojo Jojo: Evil?! How about STUPID?! Yes, thanks to your foolishness, we will be reduced to nothing! Nothing! Like the amount of intelligence inside your head! Nothing! Like the amount of respect I get after SIX SEASONS ON THIS SHOW!!!

Simian Says [6.4b]

  • Mojo Jojo: [after kidnapping the Narrator and taking his place] The city of Townsville. A city that, while being a city, is for some inexplicable reason called "Town." And not only is it called a "Town," but also a "Ville," thus making it a city, town, and village, which seems to me to be redundant and repetitive, which can be quite annoying if you ask me, which you have no choice but to do, for now I, Mojo Jojo, am in charge of... the city of Townsville!

See Me, Feel Me, Gnomey [6.11]

Bossman: [Singing]Townsville's going down! I'm gonna throw this paper on the ground!

The Mayor: [Singing]The babies can grow, and the little old folks, can walk real slooo-ho!

Professor Utonium: [repeated line, singing]Do the people have to be freedom beef?

The Gnome: [the only unsung words in the entire episode, falling down to his demise.] As I descend to the Earth, and I view the universe above me, I realize that life revolves, evolves, and dissolves, completely around the opposites. Therefore, I conclude that I cannot exist in my Utopian... [closes his eyes] mind... [hits the ground]
