How did you like Splitsville?
Splitsville is the fourth episode (and forty-third episode overall) of Season 2 of the 2016 Powerpuff Girls series. It aired on Cartoon Network on March 24, 2017.
Each of the girls are faced with a separate dilemma: Buttercup with a monster dog that multiplies when it gets hit, Blossom with a destructive robot at the library, and Bubbles with helping a farmer cross a river. They each tap into one another's identities in accomplishing their goals.
- Fancy Monster
- Robber Baren
- Townsville Girls Basketball Team
- Sherlock Holmes
- Raptor King
- In this episode; Bubbles uses her math skills to move the boat, Buttercup tames the slime dog monsters, and Blossom aggressively takes down a robot with brute force.
- Bubbles' challenge is a reference to the iconic "Fox-Chicken-Grain" riddle/game.
- This episode marks the second time in the 2016 series where Bubbles impersonates one of her sisters, the first time was "Green Wing". In this episode, she is impersonating Blossom.
- To defeat their challenges; Bubbles acts like Blossom, Buttercup acts like Bubbles, and Blossom acts like Buttercup.
- One lesson the girls learn in this episode is that they will always need each other's personality and skills to solve a problem. (Whether it be physically or mentally)
- This is the second time in the 2016 series where another character (Bubbles) impersonated Blossom. The first time was in "TTG v PPG" where Robin impersonated Blossom to trick Mojo Jojo.
- Each of the Girls pick their movie for their movie night:
- Blossom's movie "The Spreadsheets of Madison County", a parody of the 1995 romantic-film The Bridges of Madison County.
- Buttercup's movie "Bearnado", a homage of the 2013 sci-fi thriller Sharknado.
- The Robber Baren is vaguely similar of the character Dick Dastardly from the classic Hannah-Barbera cartoon Wacky Races along its 2017 reboot.
- This is the first time Buttercup had bulging biceps in the reboot.
- The tattoos on Buttercup's biceps are a reference to the two veterans Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Amelia Earhart.
- When Buttercup named her biceps, it is similar when she named her fists from "The Powerpuff Girls Rule!!!"
- The way the slime monster dogs multiply similars from the original series episode "Divide and Conquer" when the Amoeba Boys were multiplying as well.
