Everything About Fiction You Never Wanted to Know.

Blossom develops a new superpower.

The Powerpuff Girls was not originally conceived as a kids' show. The mere existence of the items on this page lends credibility to the theory that it was never a kids' show at all. In fact, the original title was "Whoopass Stew" (where instead of "Chemical X", it was a "Can of Whoopass" that was added, making them the "Whoopass Girls").

  • In one promo, (Start at 1:04) the Powerpuff Girls save Wonder Woman and Aquaman from the Legion of Doom. Wonder Woman thanks them and says that they are developing in to fine super heroes. Bubbles replies, "Someday we'll be as developed as you!" The Legion of Doom laughs at this as Wonder Woman shyly covers her chest.
  • Sara Bellum is practically an example in and of herself.
    • The fact that she is only seen from the chest down has often been suggested as being a joking way of explaining that everybody is staring at her breasts most of the time. Blossom practically confirmed this theory in The Powerpuff Girls' Greatest Rainy Day Adventure Ever, in which she dresses as Ms. Bellum by combing her hair over her face and shoving a few stuffed animals down the front of her dress.
    • After first being defeated by the Rowdyruff Boys, Ms. Bellum tells them that they've been "attacking the problem from the wrong angle", as we're treated to an overhead camera angle that lets us see down her shirt. Then she tells the girls to try "being nice" instead of fighting them -- which confused the girls considerably. Ms. Bellum did nothing but repeat her advice, but this time also moving her arms out of way leaving the camera with a clear view of her cleavage. The girls seemed to understand after that.
    • Her home address is 69 Yodelinda (Yodel in the) Valley Lane.
  • When Blossom is chasing Brick across the city they fly past a woman and Brick flies underneath her skirt and comes out smiling.
  • Though probably unintentional, the guy who copies and mass-markets the PPGirls in "Knock It off" is named Dick Hardly.

Blossom: That... that Professor Dick!

    • Also...

Blossom: Dick is good.

  • The Season 4 episode Members Only Dr. Freud would have liked a word with the writers of this episode.
    • Right in the start of the episode after the girls watch a live feed from the convention of parading overpumped paragons of manliness they start gushing over it, getting more and more excited and aroused until they are no longer capable of coherent words but can only pant and moan... and then they collapse on the sofa, exhausted but with blissful grins on their faces. Wow... just, wow.
    • Bubbles defeats the Japanese superhero "E-Male" in a near-light-speed race around the world. The other memers mock E-Male for losing the race to a girl, Valhala saying "Your PPP connection hath been severed!"
    • The monster is in the form of the giant, red, pointy hot rod, which turns into a robot bear that battles all the manly superheroes of Earth but proves invincible, declaring "The more manhood you bring against me, the harder I become!"
    • "Expulsions of manliness."
    • Said monster was defeated by the girls when they turned into a giant flaming cat and rubbed against him.
    • And at the end of the episode the male superheroes are made to wear dresses by the girls.
    • To put the episode into perspective, it's about a society of superheroes who don't want to admit girls. The title is "Members Only".
    • The monster itself challenges the superheroes to "Step forth and bring thy manhood against my own!" so they can see "who has the upper hand on the measuring stick!" Are you freaking kidding me?
    • I'm sure it's just a coincidence that the Big Bad beats up all the superheroes with huge phallic objects.
    • The African hero on the team is called Mandingo.
      • Also in that episode, the carribean hero has RED EYES! How'd they not catch THAT?
        • Not well known, but bloodshot eyes are actually a hereditary trait of many carribean residents. Easy excuse for a popular misconception.
          • Oh, well then.... The more you know!
  • In Mommy Fearest the girls helping the professor prepare for a date. As they're enthusiastically spiffing him up with various accessories and items of clothing, Buttercup adds "And some of these!" in a rather suggestive tone while tucking something unseen into his shirt pocket.
    • She also suggests a start time for the date of 10:00pm. Clearly she wasn't intending to wait up.
    • Would anyone care to explain why "Ima" was at the girls' house so late?
  • The episode where Sedusa replaces Ms Bellum features a series of visual double entendres -- for example, "Ms Bellum" helping the Mayor sharpen a pencil while he gets a blissful look, then pulls back the pencil to discover only a nub left.
    • Later when Sedusa fights the girls she throws what look like breast implants at Blossom which she took from under her blouse.
      • Oh my GOD, I thought those were shoulder pads!
    • And then there's The Stinger with the Mayor wanting to go see Sedusa,before visiting hours are up.
  • Him. The very existence of an openly transvestite villain with a falsetto in a kid's show is a bit surprising, but at one point, Him licks the professor quite suggestively.
  • In Tough Love the citizens of Townsville are brutally beaten up and at the end are show very, very injured and bandaged. Nothing too bad here. Then the narrator proclaims "Oh, nurse! Isn't it time for my sponge bath? Heh heh heh..."
  • Similar to the SpongeBob instance, one episode featuring the Sandman and taking the format of a nursery rhyme featured Buttercup telling Bubbles that her "ego [was] showing". Bubbles proceeds to say something along the lines of "Where?" and "I don't have one."
  • In the season 4 episode Super Friends, a new neighbor moves in next door to the girls. While introducing her to the Professor, the following exchange occurs:

Bubbles: This is our dad. He made us in his laboratory by accident.
Professor: Well, what can I say...
Robyn: Don't worry, Professor -- I was an accident, too!
(Professor's eye suddenly spring up)
Robyn: (later) Your dad is funny.

    • Earlier in that same episode, the Girls see their new neighbors include a married couple and Bubbles sees a box labelled "Toys", likely figuring that means they have kids. Blossom then responds "you know that lots of old people play with toys too".
  • In "Stray Bullet", when the girls are arguing over whether a squirrel they've adopted is a boy or a girl, shouting over each other so you can't tell what they're saying, once Blossom and Buttercup fall silent Bubbles yells "Squirrels eat nuts, stupid!" You can probably fill in the blanks as to what kind of suggestion she was replying to.
  • At the end of the episode Cootie Gras, when Mojo was thrown in jail, a large, burly prisoner was looking down on him with a sly smile. The Narrator's quip? "Love is in the air. Can't you just smell it?"
  • At the end of the episode where Mojo Jojo tries to redo his scheme to turn everyone in the world into dogs he ends up as a dog again and is locked away in the Townsville dog pound, where a bulldog looks at him and goes "Woof" suggestively.
  • During the episode Down N' Dirty, which was about about Buttercup's poor hygiene we see a large truck draining portable toilets. Said truck had the logo "BOB'S SEPTIC WORLD - we're full of it!" Later Buttercup is doused with its contents.
  • A lot of the episode titles were puns on suggestive things.
    • Members Only
    • Slumbering With the Enemy
    • Girls Gone Mild
    • Forced Kin
    • Shut the Pup Up
    • "Mojo Jonesin'"
  • The Boys Are Back In Town Girls' kisses used to be the boys' weakness, but now they make them "bigger and more powerful". After twelve minutes of Squicky torture -- including Brick pinning Blossom down by her arms and Snicker-snagging her (a disgusting schoolyard-bully tactic involving drool), and the other two shoving a slug down Bubbles' dress -- the girls discover that the boys' new weakness is that "whenever their masculinity is threatened, they shrink in size."
    • So they're metaphorical and literal dicks?
    • The episode also has them fighting a One-Eyed Monster, a Crab, a Tentacle Monster, and two fuzzy balls that spit a gooey substance. When defeated, the PPG throw them in a pile, with the One-Eyed Monster and fuzzy ball monsters landing in a very suggestive manner.
    • The Cootie Vaccination?

Him: Circle Circle Dot Dot, Now you have a Cootie Shot.

  • This exchange in Hot Air Buffoon:

Mayor: Enough of your silly talk. It's time to seize the helm, baby! *while making thrusting gestures with his arms and finally his crotch*
Ms. Bellum: Uhhh, do you want me to leave for that?

  • In Aspirations the Gangrene Gang have been going around stealing stuff for Sedusa because she has promised them a "reward". The whole gang melts at the thought, and no explanation is provided for what she might have meant. It gets somewhat Squicky when they refer to Sedusa as their "mommy" and Sedusa acts like they're her sons. What?
    • Funny, always looked like a "these boys'll do anything for their momma" story.
  • Toward the end of the episode "Bubble Boy", Brick and Butch find Boomer trapped in the containment ray and ask why he took his clothes off (actual answer: the Girls stole them so Bubbles could disguise herself as him). Brick follows it up with "We're not here to have a party!" Um...what?
  • One early episode was shown completely from the Mayor's POV. He gets captured by Mojo and the girls rescue him, but they start snickering. After explaining the fight with Mojo, the Mayor still wonders why the girls were laughing. Rather than explain, the girls just fly off. The camera pans back to show the Mayor is COMPLETELY NAKED and we even get a bare-butt shot. The censors were apparently fine with Mojo taking off the Mayor's clothes without consent and having a man of around 50 being naked in front of three girls who are about 5.
  • Once, the girls asked the Mayor for an extraordinary amount of money for their services. The Mayor literally has what appears to be a heart attack, then after calming down says "I'm no sugar daddy. Those days are over." For the uninformed, "sugar-daddy" means a rich man who pays a large amount of money or expensive gifts for sex or company from a younger female, (or occasionally a younger male). And he just said this to some 5-year old girls that asked him for money.
  • In the episode Equal Fights Straw Feminist villainess Femme Fatale has a picture of a pussycat licking another pussycat on her wall.
  • In The City of Clipsville, during the famous Teenage Powerpuffs scene, one of the teenage Rowdyruff Boys turns his magazine sideways and a folded page pops out, prompting him to say "woah" in response. It says FHM on the magazine. What did they put in this episode in order to make this pass?!
    • That wasn't the only bit of innuendo in that clip:

Buttercup: "Hey Blossom! Wanna take a ride on Butch's escalator?"

    • Just like the Boys Are Back in Town Episode, while Bubbles talks to Boomer, in the background, a giant One-Eyed Monster slowly rises from below, eats a girl, and then leaves.
  • It Makes Sense in Context, but in The Best Rainy Day Adventure Ever, Buttercup and Blossom have an argument about "coming". It ends with Buttercup declaring "No one tells me when to come! I'm a monster - I surprise!"
  • In Insect Inside after accidentally knocking Roach Coach off a building and upon inspecting his body and discovering he was a robot, one of his hands appears to be flipping the bird at them.
  • In Boogie Frights, the Boogie-Man quite blatantly says "shit", but it's drawn out so it sounds more like "sheeeee..."
    • And after discovering the Boogie-Man and the other monsters partying in the city, Blossom says what sounds very much like "Oh my God". It was probably "gosh" she said, but the "sh" consonant was very quiet.
  • Check out the Powerpuff Girls having orgasms from candy in the episode Candy is Dandy (start at about 2:10 and go till about 3:25). There is really no other way to describe it.
    • I wasn't really with you, until I got to the end

Bubbles: *Looking exhausted, with eyes half shut* "That... was... amazing."

    • This troper also interpreted their reaction as how someone might react to a really good ecstasy or LSD trip.
    • Also, when the girls are about to kick Mojo's ass, they sound like thugs who confront their drug dealer about hiding the blow from them.
    • Heck, that whole episode has nothing but blatant references to drug addiction.
  • Fuzzy Lumpkin and his mud "bride" in Shotgun Wedding.
  • Lenny (the Powerpuff Girl memorabilia collector)'s crotch. It looks like he has a boner sometimes!
  • At one point in Just Another Manic Mojo, Mojo waits at a red light surrounded by obnoxiously loud people, and one of the women near him is telling a story about a friend-of-a-friend who was a doctor, but refused to examine her hip. Her reaction? "What, are you too schmaltzy to make a house call?"
  • There's an episode that involves the girls starting an art supply fight in their school. It results in the girls getting chastised by their teacher, during which they're sulking and holding globs of white glue. In front of their crotches. And it's very loudly dripping. A lot.
    • Probably looking a bit too far into that...
  • In the episode CrissCrossCrisis, Blossom-in-Bellum asks a baby if he saw who committed a bank robbery. In the resultant Between My Legs shot, Man-In-Baby responds "Lady, I see a lot of things".
    • Later in the same episode, when Bubbles-in-Centipede and Buttercup-in-Cobra hold Mojo-Jojo-in-Sumo-Wrestler down, Blossom-in-Dachshund flies at Mojo, spread-eagled and exclaiming, "Wiener Attack!"
  • In the episode Imaginary Fiend, they dress Blossom up as Eric Cartman.
  • In Jewel In the Aisle, a crook steals a jewel and hides it in a cereal box that is then bought by the Professor. The crook observes the girls eating the cereal on the front lawn. He disguises himself as the local gardner and rides past the girls on a lawn moter. As he rides past them, he calls back that he'd like some of that delicious cereal too. Buttercup replies, "Well throw that bad boy in reverse and come have some!"
  • In one episode, Him forced the girls to do a long series of complex riddles. One was the dreaded complex Math Train Equation. Blossom pulls out her Abacus, prompting this exchange:

Buttercup "Can't you Abacus a little faster?"
Blossom "Abacus my butt!

    • Head writer Amy Rogers clarified that Blossom said "Abacus my foot!"
  • The episode "Mojo Jonesin'" is one big drug abuse metaphor. It has Mojo in a trench coat, in an alley way, giving "chemical x" to kids. But, it wears off and the kids want more. Essentially, Mojo gets the kids hooked on chemical x, by giving the first hit away for free, and then asks the addicted kids for something in return. The announcer even says things like "Destroy the Powerpuff Girls!?Kids, just say no!" and " They used to be such good kids!"
  • During the Christmas Special, Santa's permanent Naughty List has "Adolf Schickelgruber" on it. This is Hitler's real name.
  • In Pee Pee G when all the kids leave kindergarten, Miss Keane sighs and says "I could sure use a-" before spotting Blossom, quickly cutting off, and questioning her on why she's still there in a manner clearly meant to distract from any previous statements.
  • The entire episode of See Me, Feel Me, Gnomey. Themes of cults, idol worship (with a character that looks uncannily like Satan, and a campaign against communism. Is it at all a wonder why it was never allowed to air in the US? However it's free to access for those with digital cable!
