Here They Come Just in Time: “The PowerPuff Girls” Top 3 Memorable Episodes

This show was my biggest favorite when I was 7. There’s a reboot now, but I like the old series better.

I have not seen much of the series in years, except for the Christmas special. But that’s another post, plus it’s off-season.

Anyway, these are the top 3 memorable episodes of “The PowerPuff Girls”. This does not include the reboot. I have not watched that, nor do I want to.

Note, these are not necessarily my favorite episodes—just ones that stand out to me.

3: The episode where Blossom has ice powers

Poor Blossom gets scolded for her ice breath, despite the boiling sun. Bubbles and Buttercup dislike her ice powers. Blossom has to promise not to use it, except when necessary. Even at school, when Ms. Keane demands everybody goes outside, Blossom has to resist the urge to use her ice breath.

Although Blossom is very bright, I felt sorry for her when her sisters put her down for her ice powers (I believe Buttercup called Blossom “Ice Princess” as an insult). This is, I think, the only episode where Blossom has ice breath.

2: The episode with Cooties

A girl in the PPG’s class panics when a boy has saliva all over his mouth and tries to kiss her. Even the PowerPuff Girls have nightmares about that kid giving them cooties. In the dream, several little clones of that child pop out of their skin.

As a little kid, it meant nothing to me. But now, as an adult, I find this offensive. I don’t think I’d voluntarily watch that episode now.

1: The episode where Bubbles keeps animals in the house

This I remember better than the others I listed. Bubbles has animals inside the house. The professor states that the animals need to be free and not locked up inside a closet. Later Bubbles has a whale because it won’t fit in a closet. But the whale gets dried up and even makes a noise. Bubbles, as her not-very-wise self, just gives it a glass of water. Of course, that’s not enough. At some point, Bubbles learns the lesson and frees the animals from the Townsville Zoo (and doesn’t get arrested).

I adored Bubbles’ little rhyme, “They’re Mr. and Mrs. Squeakers, inside your sneakers” to the professor. I think I’d like this episode now.

While I said these are the top 3 memorable episodes, I do have a bonus.

Drumroll…

Bonus: The birthday party episode

It’s the PPG’s birthday and many Townsville residents are invited. The girls are desperate to open their presents. They even use X-ray vision to see inside their gifts. However, the professor stops them and says that they can open their presents after cake.

The PowerPuff Girls are so rushed that Bubbles won’t let the guests sing “Happy Birthday”. The professor gives them the cake, which they blow away. Regardless of his request to eat the cake before they can open their presents, the professor seems to give his daughters a free pass to open their gifts. However, a few presents come from the villains and endanger the girls. I do admire the dolls that resembled the girls, though, and Princess Morbucks telling one of the other bad guys, “You gave them dolls?”

Well, that’s it. Do you have any memorable moments of “The PowerPuff Girls” you want to share?

These Are a Few of My Favorite Family Trips

polynesia-3021072_1920

My family and I have traveled a lot. I have the plane guidelines memorized (I don’t even pay attention to the demos anymore), I know what to (and what not to) pack, and I know how to prepare for trips.

Some were amazing. Some could have been better. Others were enjoyable enough. I will list the top three favorite trips I’ve gone on.

3: Lake George (2014)

I’ve gone there twice. I have to admit I liked the second time better. My favorite moment was when my family was eating near the lake and a duck stepped on my dad’s foot. We were there because my brother was going to Boy Scout camp there. So we did some activities until we had to drop off my brother.

2: Costa Rica (2011)

From the rainforest to the beach, we did a lot of touring. We saw a quetzal, which I hear is rare, as well as a sloth and some monkeys. We zip-lined, jet-skied, and had fun.

1: Atlantis (2010)

Although my mom didn’t enjoy it, I liked it a lot. I did the waterpark, including the tubes where the sharks surround you, saw the sea creatures, and had a good time. We also swam with dolphins at Blue Lagoon Island and snorkeled on a reef. I actually cut my finger on a fish fin (not intentionally, of course).

I could go on with other trips I enjoyed. I will talk about them in other posts.
