Are you ready to welcome your childhood back? After being a huge part of our life with the 78-episode run of the original series, now the Powerpuff Girls series is back on its way to us as a live-action spinoff! So we wanted to take a throwback to our old days with you through its most liked and watched episodes according to IMDb before it arrives.
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. And it seems Chemical X didn’t only give superpower to the girls, but also provided a cheerful absurd sense of humor along with grotesque elements as well. Considering those and more, we had really hard times deciding which episodes to mention as favorites. So we ended up showing you Powerpuff Girls’ best parts of each season according to their IMDb rates.
The Rowdyruff Boys
- Season 1, Episode 12
- IMDb Rate: 8,4
After being defeated against the Powerpuff Girls all the time, Mojo Jojo gets so outraged that he decides to beat them at their own games. So he creates The Rowdyruff Boys, who prove superior fighters to the girls.
The Boys endanger innocent lives in order to force the girls to play defense so they could prevent collateral damage. But at the end of the day, each of the girls gives their copy a kiss on the cheek and causes the Rowdyruffs’ self-destruction by poisoning.
Speed Demon/Mojo Jonesin
- Season 2, Episode 12
- IMDb Rate: 8,6
This episode can be the darkest one of Powerpuff Girls which has no humor and comedy in it unlike the usual. Girls propel themselves 50 years in the future by accidentally fly the speed of light. And when they finally get back home, they also find out that everything has changed during their absence. HIM has taken over the Earth by taking advantage of Girls not being there to protect the Earth.
Moral Decay/Meet the Beat-Alls
- Season 3, Episode 13
- IMDb Rate: 8,6
We just said no humor, right? Well, unlike the Speed Demon episode, this one is oppositely one of the funniest episodes of Powerpuff Girls, for sure. Buttercup accidentally knocks out Bubbles’ tooth and finds out that tooth decay does pay. So, soon enough she goes on a spree knocking out teeth and collecting the cash and ends up being literally a money addict. Remember?
As a reason why adults also very happened to like this series can be also explained with this episode as well. After struggling with girls for years and getting nothing, Mojo Jojo, HIM, Princess Morebucks, and Fuzzy Lumpkins decide to join their forces to defeat them. So they set up a group called “The Beat-Alls,” and they refer to The Beatles by using their song lyrics in almost every single speech of them along with the group’s name.
So in every single way, this episode of Powerpuff Girls is really one of the funniest and best episodes ever that makes you laugh in tears and enjoy every second of it.
