Way before he broke ground for an orphanage that houses imaginary friends, Craig McCracken created the world's youngest superhero team !

That's right, people, the Emmy nominated series has finally come back in an amazing 2-disc DVD set ! It's Blossom, Bubbles, and Buttercup, back and better than ever in their very first thirteen episodes in one of Cartoon Network's groundbreaking hit shows. Such episodes include:

"Monkey See, Doggy Do" - Mojo Jojo uses the cursed Anubis head to literally make Townsville go to the dogs.
"Octi Evil" - The evil manifestation preferably known as HIM uses Bubbles' favorite stuffed toy to do his bidding.
"Major Competition" - A strapping new superhero named Major Man becomes Townsville's new guardian. What will the girls do now ?
"Paste Makes Waste" - A strange boy named Elmer Glue eats so much school glue, he turns into a giant paste monster the girls have to fight.
"The Bare Facts" - The oblivious Mayor of Townsville has been rescued by the girls from Mojo Jojo. Now the girls each tell the Mayor the... "naked truth" on what happened back there.
"Impeach Fuzz" - Fuzzy Lumpkins runs for Mayor and wins by a landslide. How will the former Mayor get his title back ?
"The Rowdyruff Boys" - Sick and tired of being defeated by the girls, Mojo Jojo creates Brick, Boomer, and Butch, male counterparts to the girls.

In addition to this stunning first season of episodes, the second disc is power-packed with amazing special extra features such as:
- The two pilot episodes "Meat Fuzzy Lumpkins" and "Crime 101".
- Archive interviews with Craig McCracken including a special Space Ghost episode.
- Bits and promos out the wazoo !

I've always felt. . .I don't know. . .maybe a little guilty about how much I like this show. I mean, to the uninitiated, it would seem to be a girl-power superhero cartoon aimed primarily at young girls.

But I'm a 39-year old man. And I love the Powerpuff Girls! Like the best modern animated shows (The Tick Vs. Season One, for example), it manages to combine a kinetic visual style with humor that isn't dumbed-down just because it's a "kid's show." Blossom, Bubbles and Buttercup may only be 5 years old, but many of the gags are aimed WAY above their heads. One classic episode (alas, in a later season), "Meet the Beat-alls," is composed almost entirely of references to the Beatles. The girl's chief nemesis, the intelligent simian Mojo Jojo, also seems aimed as much at parents as the kids in the audience.

If you think all modern cartoons are too bland, too loud, or too derivative of way-overrated Japanese animation (Teen Titans, I'm looking at YOU), give The Powerpuff Girls a try. It's a rare combination: Smart and funny, with barely a hint of cynicism and crudeness that permeates so much so-called "family" programming.

Thank you for finally releasing the entire 1st season of the 'Puffs!!

About 9 months ago, my 3-year old daughter stumbled across a bonus episode of the Powerpuff Girls ("Boogie Frights") at the end of a Scooby-Doo video tape. I got home and my wife asked, "What is this? She wants to keep watching this and she absolutely loves it!" I smiled and told her that it was the Powerpuff Girls, of course!

I was in my 20's when I first came across them in Cartoon Network and it was one of my secret, guilty pleasures to watch (it's not something you share around the water cooler casually). But let's face it - the Powerpuff Girls offer fun viewing for kids and adults because there is humor for both.

So, I picked up all the Powerpuff stuff available on DVD for my daughter and was saddened to see that some of my more favorite episodes ("Octi Evil" to name one) were not out there and that a great number of episodes were sadly missing.

But now here's Season 1!!! It overlaps some of what I've already collected, but a little more than half of Season 1 contains episodes that I didn't previously have. To have an entire Season for $19.99 is also a fairly smoking deal; it's 4 hours and 50 minutes of viewing material!!!!!

That said, some parents might be put off by the violence in the cartoon, so I leave that up to an individual's taste. In our household, we pass it off as humor because ALL of it is make-believe and our daughter accepts that; she doesn't go around punching things because she thinks that she is a Powerpuff Girl. She does like having her hair put up like Bubbles, though. ;)

Anyway, a toast to Craig McCracken (creator). Here's to hoping that you release 'em all because I will sure be in line to buy every single one.

It's great to see the classic cartoons that made Cartoon Network famous finally be put on dvd.

While PPG wasn't exactly my favorite of the classics,it was still pretty good and truely had it's moments.HIM and Mojo Jojo are still some of my favorite villains.Episodes "Tough Love","Speed Demon","Los Dos Mojos" and "Slumbering With The Enemy" come to mind.And who could possibly forget the episode where Mojo had to babysit the PPG?The Barney reference skit in that one was the best!

I'll admit that my review is a bit biased though,because I am a HUGE fan of voice actress Tara Strong (Bubbles) and I also like E.G. Daily (Buttercup).

My only request now is for Cartoon Network to PLEASE start releasing Dexter's Laboratory on dvd!! Cow and Chicken and Courage the Cowardly Dog sets would also be great to have on my shelf!

Also maybe,just maybe;could some of these companies consider releasing a set of first AND second season,rather than just one at a time??Esp. with shows like The Grim Adventures of Billy and Mandy,where the characters really evolve as well as the style of the show (Billy and Mandy just picking on/bullying Grim,to Billy and Mandy working with Grim or at least given the same amount of dishing out and taking abuse)

As far as the PPG set goes though,it's great and the bonuses really add to it's appeal esp. for the great price.

P.S. I always used to get razzed by my cousins (guys of course) for watching this show.But I didn't/don't care;cool animation is cool animation!Throw in a bit of adult humor,interesting characters and good plots and you've got some great entertainment!

Which Promos are included?
Hm, I don't think that one was on there. They're mostly just promos advertising the show before it premiered, and then the random little bits before and after commercial breaks.
