Chemical X - The mysterious chemical that spawned
a trio of super-powered little girls on the Cartoon Network sci-fi animated
series THE POWERPUFF GIRLS/CAR/1998-2004. The Powerpuff Girls were the creation
Professor Utonium, a teacher of quantum physics and micro-nuclear fusion at
Townsville Research Center. One day in his laboratory, he gathered together all
the ingredients ("Sugar, spice and everything nice") to create one wonderful
little girl But unfortunately, the professor's lab monkey assistant accidentally
dropped "Chemical X" into the mix and instead of one perfect little girl, the
mixture produced three super-powered little girls, namely Blossom, Bubbles and
Buttercup, (a.k.a. "The Powerpuff Girls").
Chemical X gave the karate chopping Powerpuff Girls the powers of
super-strength, flight, super-speed, heat vision, and the ability to generate
energy blasts from their tiny bodies.
When not battling evil, the girls attended Pokey Oaks kindergarten in
Townsville, USA with their favorite teacher Ms. Keane.
Theme Song Lyrics
Sugar, spice, and everything nice
These were the ingredients chosen
To create the perfect little girls
But Professor Utonium accidentally
Added an extra ingredients to the concoction--
Thus, The Powerpuff Girls were born
Using their ultra-super powers
Blossom, Bubbles, and Buttercup
Have dedicated their lives to fighting crime
And the forces of evil
Blossom (a red-head) is the leader of the Powerpuff Girls; Buttercup (black
hair) is a tough, hotheaded tomboy; and Bubbles (a blond) is the sweetest in the
bunch. Later in the series, there was a fourth Powerpuff girl named Bunny with
brown hair, and purple eyes. She was created by the Powerpuff Girls to help them
with their crime fighting duties, but Bunny's molecular structure soon became
unstable and exploded.
TRIVIA NOTE: Blossom, Bubbles and Buttercup appeared in the feature length
cartoon The Powerpuff Girls (2002). The movie's tagline was "Saving the world
The Powerpuff Girl's franchise also inspired a Nintendo 64 3-D fighting game
called "Chemical X-Traction" in which the villainous monkey Mojo Jojo intends to
feed slices of a pie filled with Chemical X to various villains in Townville.
It's up to the Powerpuff Girls to retrieve the pie and prevent the bad guys from
becoming more powerful.
On July 1, 2006, an updated version of THE POWERPUFF GIRLS debuted in Japan.
Called "Demashitaa! Powerpuff Girls Z," the Japanese cartoon is a collaboration
between Cartoon Network, Toei Animation, Aniplex, and TV Tokyo. The Powerpuff
