How did you like Run, Blossom, Run!?
Run, Blossom, Run! is an animated short based on The Powerpuff Girls first releasing on March 15, 2016. It is the fourth Powerpuff Girls short to be released.
After waking up from a pleasant dream, Blossom discovers that it's 7:30 am and she and her sisters are going to be late for school. She tries to wake up Buttercup and Bubbles but fails. In a panic, she tries to make it to school on time by herself in under 1 minute and 14 seconds. Along the way, however, she can't help but assist people, like a boy whose kite and cat are stuck in a tree, an elderly man trying to cross the street, and the Mayor of Townsville who has his head stuck in a pickle jar. Blossom almost makes it to school on time, but she suddenly realizes she forgot her homework.
Even after flying back home to get her notebook, she still makes it to the school's front entrance before being late. However, the school doors are locked, and Blossom realizes that it's Sunday. Buttercup and Bubbles arrive and tell her that she did the same thing the day before. With a heavy sigh, Blossom decides to go back to bed.
- Blossom: Actually, it's just Miss President.
- Blossom: Bubbles? Get up!
- Bubbles: Look, Octi. Those mice are can-can dancing.
- Blossom: Bubbles, please!
- Bubbles: Touch me again, and I will end you.
- Blossom: What's the problem, citizen?
- Boy: My kite's stuck in a tree. And my cat's stuck on a kite.
- Blossom: It's Saturday, isn't it?
- Bubbles: Sunday actually.
- Buttercup: You did this yesterday too. I'm starting to think you have a problem.
