TELEVISION: Powerpuff Girls Rule!!!

It’s been a while since the Powerpuff Girls have had a new adventure, but that all changes this evening following the Cartoon Network’s Powerpuff Girls Marathon! The new, special, double-length Powerpuffs Rule! [8/7C] brings back this smart, semi-satirical superhero series for the team’s most outrageous adventure yet!

PPG 10 Villains unite against the Powerpuff Girls

It seems that the Key to the World is coming to Townsville for one day – despite The City of Townsville being Supervillain Central. Worse, The Mayor loses the key – setting everyone of the Girls’ enemies after it. Now, not only do the Girls have to find the key, they have to undo the chaos that the villains are catching in their.

And what if the Key makes the girls decide that only they are capable of ruling? And what happens if Mojo Jojo should get his paws on the key? Just how evil are his plans for ruling the world – and where do the puppies come in?

Once again, Craig McCracken and his cohorts have come up with a unique adventure for Bubbles, Blossom and Buttercup – including some wisdom from another source on the subject of great responsibility; listening to their father, and generally putting their heads together to find ways to stop the ever reliable Mojo JoJo [and make fun of his manner of speech]. [C’mon, the guy is redundancy on legs!]

McCracken’s crack creative pepper the double-length ep with pop culture references – the great responsibility this is only one several. The Powerpuff Girls don’t work without a dash of satire, a few pop culture references [into which category, Mojo JoJo’s songs clearly fall] and a bit of cartoon violence, cleverly concealed beneath streaks of red, blue and green.

All The Powerpuff Girls Rule!!! Because they’ve been brought up right and love their father, whose radical experiment went, as the PR material puts it, horribly right. So, once again the City of Townsville is saved by The Powerpuff Girls! And really, they are so swell, how could we want things any other way? Happy Anniversary, Powerpuff Girls!
