Product Description

Movie version of the television program explores the origins of the Powerpuff Girls and explains why they were born and how they started fighting evil.
Genre: Feature Film Family
Rating: PG
Release Date: 3-FEB-2004
Media Type: DVD

The prologue to every Powerpuff Girls show explains how the perky threesome were created in Professor Utonium's lab--by a combination of sugar, spice, and everything nice, along with an accidental dash of Chemical X--but how is it that they started fighting crime? Why didn't they just take their superpowers to the playground and use them for fun? And what's behind evil monkey MoJo JoJo's never-ending quest for Powerpuff vengeance? All questions are answered in The Powerpuff Girls Movie, which details the creation of Blossom (the commander and leader), Bubbles (the joy and laughter), and Buttercup (the toughest fighter) in more depth than ever before, and the result is a speedy, fun joy ride through the girls' early days. At first, the girls are happy-go-lucky, fitting in nicely at Pokey Oaks kindergarten, until a game of tag gets riotously out of hand (destroying the city of Townsville in the process) and they're shunned by the town populace. Alone, they find their only ally in MoJo, a monkey with a peculiarly large brain and a sympathetic nature, but is MoJo really on their side? The 87-minute length doesn't offer the breakneck momentum that regular episodes do, but it's still riotously funny and filled with tons of Powerpuff fighting. Fans may miss the other super villains featured in the show (MoJo's the only bad guy in town, for now), but with the jokes and action coming fast, you'll be pleasantly enraptured by the perky threesome. (Ages 7 and up) --Mark Englehart

"From the voice that brought you great lines such as 'The city of Townsville... is under attack' comes this menu to the ultra-deluxe Powerpuff Girls movie DVD" enthuses the familiar voice of Tom Kenny, better known as the Narrator on the Powerpuff Girls. And brother, I'd love to be able to tell you that this DVD lives up to that promise... but I've got to say, WHAT SELF-RESPECTING "ULTRA-DELUXE" DVD IS ONLY AVAILABLE IN PAN AND SCAN?!
There used to be a time when all theatrical motion picture DVDs were available *only* in their original, widescreen, theatrical aspect ratio. No questions asked, no apologies made. But clearly, Warner Brothers has decided that this DVD is strictly a release for children, and thus decided to eliminate those "pesky black bars" on the top and bottom of the screen - and in the process a good chunk of the movie's picture along with them - because apparently kids are too dumb to realize that TVs and movie screens are different shapes!
But let me back up here a bit. For anyone who's a fan of The Powerpuff Girls TV series, you'll know that this is so much more than a children's show. Despite what the media, marketing, and critics would have you believe, the Powerpuff Girls are *not* the creation of some soulless corporate committee designed to sell a 'girl power' positive-role-model message to the Barbie set. Oh no. They were created by a talented up-and-coming animator named Craig McCracken because, well, he thought the idea of little girls with extreme superpowers was funny. And over the years of the show's evolution and success, it has stayed true to its original intent: to be funny.
The Powerpuff Girls Movie is a shining example of a funny movie created by animators for animation fans.

I am forty-years old and have been a PpG fan since day one back in November of 1998. I LOVE THE PPG MOVIE! Some people do not understand that this is the prequel to the TV series, so of course it will not have all the villains in the movie. Craig McCracken wanted to balance out the film where fans of the show, and people who have never seen the PpG, can enjoy it. The movie is just like the TV series.
I am happy to see that Craig did not make any improvements to the characters as other films do that go from TV to the big screen. He kept the characters the same as they are on the show. The animation is a little better.
The movie makes references to such films "Planet of the Apes," "Conquest of the Planet of the Apes," "The Wizard OF Oz," and "King Kong."
My favorite scene is where the girls are playing tag in Townsville. The girls are having a ball playing tag around Townsville. They do not realize how rough they are playing and in the process, they are destroying the town.
This film makes you laugh while other animated shows take themselves too seriously. The PpG reminds me of the Cartoons I used to watch when I was a kid. Cartoons like Atom Ant, The Beatles Cartoons, Spider-Man, Top Cat, the Impossibles, and the campy 1966 Batman TV series.
It is not only the animation that makes the movie great; it is also the talents of the voiceover actors that bring the characters to life. E.G. Daily, Tara Strong, Cathy Cavadini, and the rest of the cast make these characters laughable, loveable, and believable. Everyone has done an excellent job on this movie.
I hope Cartoon Network and Warner Brothers decide not to get rid of the cast of this fine and unique series. The show will lose many fans if CN and WB do decide to get a new cast.

OK, OK, OK... *sigh*.....
Now I know that perhaps the core audience for this type of movie is p'rhaps tiny little children and that p'rhaps tiny little children don't really care, when their favorite iddy biddy heroines zip around the screen, if that screen is full or wide, but COME ON PEOPLE!!! No widescreen release at all!!!???
There are so many dark and foreboding things said about our society when --despite the fact it was a major motion picture release, despite the fact that it was run in theaters just earlier this very year, and despite the fact that the original feature was produced in widescreen-- there is no widescreen DVD release offered to the viewers that do happen to care very deeply about these things!!!
...deep breath... count to 10...
I'm sorry, I'm just too emotionally disturbed to go on and on and on and on at this time. Hrrumph!!!

I'm 47 years old, and it takes a LOT for a cartoon to impress me. I became hopelessly addicted to the Powerpuff Girls in 1995, and this movie just renews my love of the franchise.
The movie was everything I expected and much more from Craig McCracken and the entire PpG staff that put this wonderful movie together. If this movie doesn't become a cult anime classic, I'll eat my entire PpG comic book collection!
This is indeed the best cartoon movie I have seen in years.

This dvd has been ruined by being in a full-screen format. Full Screen crops the theatrical picture to 4:3 ratio which is the shape of a standard (non-widescreen) TV screen. There is no letterboxing, but up to a third of the original picture is lost. WIDESCREEN preserves the original theatrical picture ratio of the film which will appear in "letterboxed" format on a normal TV screen. If anyone has an all-region dvd player, I recomend going to Amazon UK and ordering the region 2 PAL Dvd version. It Is in widescreen
