This trio of crime-fighting superheroines must work around kindergarten obligations, and if you've seen the Cartoon Network series you know they must save the world before bedtime. But they rise to the challenge with the help of their guardian-creator, Professor Utonium. In the Emmy-nominated title episode, Bubbles gets fed up with being "the cute one," while her comrades get the better assignments, so she takes on a series of ugly baddies, resulting in many fires and explosions. There are five episodes on this 60-minute tape, including the double-episode "Uh-Oh Dynamo," which finds the girls battling a monster at the city park. The trio finally vanquishes it from inside a huge robot, but not before the entire downtown appears leveled. In "Mr. Mojo's Rising," the girls must rescue the professor when he is kidnapped by an evil megabrained monkey. "Powerpuff Bluff" introduces three hoodlums who impersonate the girls and rip off Townsville's denizens, landing the real girls a spell in the pokey. "Cat Man Do" will teach youngsters to go the shelter for their pets, as the kitty (voiced by Mark Hamill) the gals "rescue" from a crimelord's compound turns out to be a mind- controlling fiend. Parents scrutinizing violent content, beware; otherwise for ages 7 and up. --Kimberly Heinrichs

Format:VHS Tape
Somewhere in the far-off land of our very own U.S.A. lies Townsville, an imaginary megapolis that just bristles with innocence and good will. This is where the smaller, younger, and cuter versions of the notorious anime superheroines were tenderly brought into the world by a fatherly chemistry wizard, the square-jawed Professor Utonium and brought up at a local nursery school headed by the ever-cheery Ms. Keane. Now meet our very young crimefighting trio, Blossom the bossy redhead, Bubbles the overoptimistic little blonde who's always sprouting sunshine and smiling daisies, and Buttercup, the brunette sourpuss who happens to be my most favorite! Their biggest purpose in their whole lives is to stop the baddies like Mojo Jojo the deranged ape with a very twisted mind (and an overgrown brain to hold it!), Fuzzy Bumpkins, the people-hating, bug-faced country hermit, and ... (*shudder*) ... "him" from disrupting the peace of the world's most perfect city and all its happy, fun-loving inhabitants!
Here in this video, our innocent little Bubbles tries very hard to prove herself and her sisters that she can, too fight towering Japanese-style monsters just like them instead of just being a giggly featherbrain that needs to be left behind. And then the infamous Mojo Jojo steps in, unwittingly giving her one big whopper of a boost! Aw, come on and share such wonderful, magic-filled adventures with the tiniest princesses with the biggest and the most soulful orbs in the whole cartoon kingdom!

5.0 out of 5 stars Powerpuff Girls - Finally on DVD!!! November 17, 2000
Format:DVD
Finally, my requests for a Powerpuff Girls DVD compilation have been answered! "Powerpuff Bluff" is a compilation of the first two Powerpuff Girls videos to appear on the market: "Bubblevicious" and "Monkey See, Doggie Do". When I purchased these videos I had no idea that Warner Home Video was planning to release both video collections on a future DVD compilation. Well, know I'm both surprised and elated.
"Powerpuff Bluff" includes some of the show's first episodes when it premiered on the Cartoon Network in the fall of 1998. The quality of the video when compared to the VHS editions is superb and the sound is incredible. The ability to select chapters on the DVD sure beats fast forwarding or rewinding to episodes you want to see, and the extra features, which include a preview for a new Cartoon Network series is an added bonus.
"Powerpuff Bluff" is one of the best DVD releases of 2000. If you are a fan of the series, this DVD is a must have to truly enjoy the visual and audio quality of one of today's best cartoon series. If you don't have a DVD, run out and get one, as the days of the VCR are numbered.

4.0 out of 5 stars Bubble-delicious for the most part January 8, 2003
Format:VHS Tape
This is the last of three in a series of detailed reviews from the videos comprising the Powerpuff 3-Pack. Video: Bubblevicious.
In the title story, Bubbles, frustrated of being seen as the baby of the crime-fighting trio, takes it upon herself to be just as hardcore as her sisters. The scene where she gets a real workout in the simulation room ends with her in an adrenalized frenzy, crying: "Who else wants some?" It's a good action-packed scene. However, she newfound determination also carries with it some pent-up rage, which alienates her sisters. Buttercup's fight against a slug-like monster also demonstrates why she is the toughest fighter. (Rating: 5).
"Uh Oh...Dynamo" shows that not even weekends are sacred. The Girls have to deal with a giant, multiocular fish monster who seems to have been a reject from a Godzilla movie. The Dynamo referred to in this story is a titanic robotic Powerpuff Girl that the Professor builds to protect the girls. After watching this story I put Townsville down on my list of cities most frequently destroyed, probably even beating the number of times Godzilla has destroyed Tokyo. (Rating: 4).
"Mr. Mojo's Rising" is a condensed version of how and why Mojo Jojo left Professor Utonium. It does not contradict the opening sequence of the PPG movie. Basically, Mojo feels that the professor's attention to the girls was what forced him out and he wants to be included. The Professor thinks maybe this will stop him from being an evil genius bent on destroying mankind. And no, Jim Morrison does not make a guest appearance despite the title. (Rating: 4).
In "Cat Man Do", a scientist who has created a ray gun and is about to unleash its power on Townsville is stopped by the Powerpuffs.

Format:VHS Tape
What is it about the Cartoon Network that appeals so fully to both kids *and* adults? It's not only the nostalgic old cartoons but also the brilliant new ones, top among them the Powerpuff Girls! Never seen them (or don't have the Cartoon Network)? You owe it to yourself to get this video with some of the best episodes of the series. Parents with very young children should be warned that the action (or "fantasy violence," as the TV warning says) can sometimes be strong, but the good guys (er, girls) always win and there's enough that works on both levels to amuse and entertain both the old and young kids. The standout episode of this tape is "Bubblevicious," where sweet, innocent Bubbles laments not being 'hardcore' enough to take on the meanest villains her sisters Blossom and Buttercup can. Visual jokes and pop-culture references (including a very funny brief visual homage to 'Spinal Tap') make this the smartest cartoon show since 'The Simpsons'--full of fun and irreverance but without the gross-out humor of some of its 'Cartoon Cartoon' companions on the TV network. There's enough cute Powerpuff Girls merchandise out in the stores to challenge Pokémon, but the first and best thing you need is this tape! As the Talking Dog would say: "It's good! It's good! It's good! It's good!"
