This DVD combines two previous VHS collections.

Birthday Bash
Sugar, spice, everything nice, and a bit of Chemical X is what it took to bring us Bubbles, Blossom, and Buttercup--also known as those crime- fighting kindergartners, the Powerpuff Girls. This video collection of five episodes from their hit Cartoon Network show provides a delightfully humorous introduction to the minuscule marvels. The title episode, "Birthday Bash," features the girls defeating the destructive plans of three separate villains (Mojo Jojo, the Princess, and the Amoeba Boys) without ever leaving their own birthday celebration. "Beat Your Greens" introduces us to alien broccoli, and "Stuck Up, Up and Away" shows the origin of the girls' female nemesis, Princess. "School House Rocked" and "Los Dos Mojo" complete the villain cycle by featuring the Gangrene Gang and Mojo Jojo--the ever failing and overdressed monkey--in tales that show us the girls both at school and on the job. A bonus cartoon, "Sheep in the Big City," doesn't feature the Powerpuff Girls but will be enjoyed by their fans for its combination of blatant and intelligent humor, much like the style of the jokes found in all Powerpuff episodes. With a running time of over an hour, this tape is sure to provide its viewers with a good supply of girl power. (Ages 5 and older.) --Zachary Lively

Dream Scheme
The crime-fighting kindergarteners go after the Sandman, a jealous schoolmate, the usual monsters, and a superhero impostor in this five- episode compilation from the Cartoon Network favorite. The overworked, sleep-deprived Sandman is out of control in the title episode, putting the whole world to sleep so he can get some shut-eye of his own. But the gals thwart him by appearing in his dream and turning it into a nightmare. "Just Another Manic Mojo" finds the hermit monkey trying to destroy the trio with a giant laser when they come to his castle to retrieve their wayward ball. Buttercup refuses to bathe in "Down 'n' Dirty," stinking up Pokey Oaks Kindergarten and grossing out even the villains she battles. Classmate Princess hires Mojo to isolate Chemical X and turn her into a Powerpuff Girl in "Mo Job." And muscle-bound Major Man replaces the girls in the hearts and minds of Townsville when his exploits surpass theirs--but not for long, of course. The 70-minute video includes a bonus episode of "Courage the Cowardly Dog," which involves an eggplant uprising against the dog's vegetable-loving owner, Muriel, in a story called "Journey to the Center of Nowhere." (Ages 7 and older.) --Kimberly Heinrichs

Another collection featuring those pint-sized heroines.
"Dream Scheme" has the Sandman, burned out after having to clamp down on delinquent sleepers, decides to put the world to sleep so he can get more than a couple of winks. The narration and character dialogue is done entirely in rhyming iambic pentameter. Examples from the Sandman: "Oh, those brats are ruining my ploy/By staying awake, they're stealing my joy/I'll pay them a visit, a little house call/And take care of this matter once and for all." (Rating: 5)
"Just Another Manic Mojo" shows how insular and disconnected Mojo is from the rest of Townsville. However, I can understand, given how he perceives the "gum-chewing, finger-snapping, and inane gossip while waiting for the light to change. "Accursed people", indeed! He tries to get rid of the Puffs after their baseball lands in his volcano observatory, but he doesn't reckon on their mischief. Highlights: Bubbles and the gum-popping, and Mojo's photo album. And the scene where Mojo's turban is placed on his head is clearly taken from a similar scene involving Darth Vader in Empire Strikes Back. (Rating: 5)
In "Down And Dirty," Buttercup's refusal to take a bath after fighting some substance-spewing monsters leads her to become a septic sister and alienating her from her sisters and the Townies. Highlights: the mucus-blasting mutant elephant and Buttercup's expression when she licks one of the elephant's discharges off her face. Also, the mayor receiving a complaint: "Do you think I'm blind? Of course I smell it." And the best lines: Buttercup: "Don't you know only big fat sissies take baths?" Bubbles: "I'm not fat." My favorite episode in this collection.

Compiling the recent two Powerpuff Girls VHS releases, "Birthday Bash" and "Dream Scheme", "Down & Dirty" is the second DVD compilation of the hit cartoon series to be released on the market. Featuring some of the show's best episodes, Down & Dirty" has more too offer than it's original predecessor. As added bonus treats to viewers, the DVD contains character profiles, web links (for DVD-Rom players), a sneak preview of the new Cartoon Network series "Sheep in the Big City," and an interactive Powerpuff Girls Trivia Game that can be played on your DVD player.
In watching the entire compilation, I was elated to see that my favorite villain, Princess Morebucks, was featured in three of the episodes, especially my favorite episode "Stuck Up, Up, and Away". Princess, who is the typical spoiled rich brat, desperately wants to become a Powerpuff Girl, however all the money in the world can buy her the superpowers she'll need to battle Townsville's legion of villains. Using witty lines (in response to Buttercup's statement that money can't buy superpowers, Princess replies "Oh Yeah, Tell That to Batman.") and bright animation, this episode is one of the series' best.
Other great episodes include "Birthday Bash" where Townsville's villains unite to ruin the Girls birthday publicized birthday party, and "Schoolhouse Rocked" which features the Gangrene Gang and their new hangout place: Pokey Oats Kindergarten. Overall, both adults and children alike will love the Powerpuff Girls. The quality of both picture and sound is amazing on DVD, and if you haven't purchased a DVD player, please do so as soon as possible. DVD is today's most exciting way to watch films and shows and compared to VHS, the Powerpuff Girls look and sound fantastic in this digital format. "Down & Dirty" is a must have for any Powerpuff Girls fans!

OK! Now, let's get started. Here's the episodes of what they're about.
Birthday Bash: This is the best episode on da video!!!!!!!!!!!! Well, Its the Girls birthdays, & Mojos present is soo funny! The robot says "I am I gift from Mojo Jojo! Enjoy your birthday, or it will be your last!" hahahaha! The rocket from Princess was cool too. And the funniest present of them all was the Ameoba Boys Powerpuff Voodoo Dolls. I cracked up. And Him gives candy. (5 stars) The second one was Beat Your Greens. Another hillarious episode. It's when these evil Brocli Aliens plant brocli spores on the farm & the kids don't like Brocli. O, it's soo funny when this young dad says 2 his baby boy: "Here comes the Brocli express! Woo Woo!" O, & the brocli Aliens sound like robots with their eyes open. But, with their eyes closed, they sound like evil babys. Geesh! And, its hillarious when the kids & Powerpuffs chomp them up. (5 stars) 3d is Paste Makes Waste. Well, this boy in class, Elmer eats paste & these bullys like Mitch, Buttercup, & these 2 weird twins laugh at him 4 being a paste eater. Buttercup throws paste all over the table by saying: "Eat this, paste eata!" And when Elmer eats toxic with a bug, he turns into a man monster. Elmer puts paste all over Townsville, & it's surprising that the Mayor dosen't say anything! Idiot! Blossom & Buttercup get absorbed, & Buttercup says "I'mmmmmmm SOA-AAAARRRRR-REEEEY!!!!!!!!!!!" And Elmer says she's cool now. (5 stars) 4th is School House Rocked. Well, the Gangreene Gang go 2 school, Mr. Wednesday wanted them 2. That man sounds soo boring. But, I T loves this episode. The Gangreene Gang always fool & trick people into letting them eat food & stuff. When Ace drops it & says sorry, he really does it on purpose! Jerk!!!
