In the city of Townsville, the frustrated Professor Utonium is gathering all the ingredients to make a perfect little girl (sugar, spice, and everything nice). But when his lab assistant, a monkey named Jojo, causes the accidental addition of Chemical X to the mix, the Professor ends up with not one but 3 perfect, powerful little girls. It soon becomes obvious that Blossom, Bubbles, and Buttercup are not normal girls, they have superpowers and have not yet learned to control. The girls are treated like outcasts because they have inadvertently wrecked Townsville in a superpowered game of tag. To win the hearts of the people of Townsville, the girls are tricked into making a deal with Jojo who plans to take over Townsville. As the girls foil this threat and defeat an army of superpowered monkeys, the Powerpuff Girls learn that with great power comes great responsibility.]]>

I was ecstatic when I discovered they were releasing the complete series on DVD, And after I keep checking for a season 2 dvd and nothing came up, I feared that I would never see a powerpuff dvd again! Boy was I wrong!
The series set is a great thing for any powerpuff fan as it's loaded with extras Including: The Original short that started it all "The WhoopA** Girls" the 2 original pilots from the "What A Cartoon Show" "Meat Fuzzy Lumkins" & "Crime 101", A load of classic PPG promos, The christmas special "Twas The Fight Before Christmas", a great all new 30+ minute documentary featuring interviews with Craig, Voice Actors, and other people who worked on the show, a never before seen in the states episode "See Me, Feel Me, Gnomey", and the all new 10th Anniversary episode (Which was just aired this past monday in the states) "The Powerpuff Girls Rule!!!"
And much more including commentaries from Mojo Jojo and The Mayor.
My only gripes with it are that the DVD's are double sided (Which is not that big a deal) "The Powerpuff Girls Movie" is not included in the set, and the menus on the DVD are kinda boring and theres a Cartoon Network bug on the menus (Which is also not that big a deal)
But beacuse my gripes are only small little things that don't really effect the DVD I will still give this otherwise fantastic set a 5 out of 5 as this is one of my faviorte shows of all time! "And So Once Again The Day Is Saved Thanks To The Powerpuff Girls!" THE END
Now the Powerpuff Girls are back again with a brand new COMPLETE series set!!! This commemorative 10th anniversary collection has six double-sided discs each one representing a complete season. So let me break it down for those of you in the know.
It's pretty much exactly the same as the complete first season set which is also available. So see my review on that as well as my fave episodes and special extras.
Favorite episode: "The Powerpuff Girls Best Rainy Day Adventure Ever" - In that Richard Scarry titled episode, the Girls turn a rainy day in Townsville into a fun day of pretend.
Extras: They're features most likely taken from other PPG DVDs such as the commentaries done by Mojo Jojo and the Mayor. I liked those.
Favorite episode: "Powerprof" - The Professor dons a special super suit so he can spend more time with his girls. But the Professor really isn't all that's cracked up to be.
Extras: The music videos by Shonen Knife and The Apples in Stereo. I just wish they also added the videos by Devo and Cherish, though....
Favorite episode: "Nuthin' Special" - Blossom has ice breath. Bubbles habla espanol. And Buttercup ? Well, see for yourself.
Extras: A Mayor blooper reel and the holiday special "Twas the Fight Before Christmas".
Favorite episode: "See Me, Feel Me, Gnomey" - A lot of my favorite episodes are from the 5th season, but I have to say I liked the lost rock opera episode the most where the girls trade their powers to a magical gnome for a new way of life.Read more ›
So who are the Powerpuff Girls? They are the by-product of Professor Utonium's desire to create girls using sugar, spice and everything nice except things go awry when he accidentally spills "Chemical X" into the concotion. The result: 3 little girls with super-powers. Blossom is their leader who is level-headed in most situations. Buttercup is the Powerpuff who will most likely charge into a fight without regard to consequences. Bubbles, despite her superpowers, is most easily scared and is the most sensitive 'puff of the bunch.
The double-meanings and creativity of the episodes were a delight and it was something that I used to watch guiltily as a 20-something man. They were downright hilarious, though, so it was hard not to watch. The violence might be a little too much for some parents, but my 5-year old daughter knows that it's fake and plays it up for the humor that it is. She hasn't gone around the house bashing things up nor has she exhibited any violent tendencies. Still, parents be warned and decide based on your own lifestyle and viewing choices.
The only minor complaint that I have is that it doesn't include the theatrical movie, but I'm sure that the lawyers can be well-paid and thanked for that licensing issue. Still, the movie is available for purchase separately, so no harm done.
The other minor complaint is the use of double-sided DVDs which naturally brings the price down, but makes the average parent a nervous wreck in terms of keeping the DVD surface clear of scratches.
Still, it's nice to finally have the entire TV series out, including the 78th episode never aired in the States. My daughter and I are ready to adventure the complete 'puffs!
