Synopsis

PPG (June 7, 2002)

Blossom, Bubbles, and Buttercup, as they appear in this episode.

The girls meet a new neighbor named Robin Snyder, but their friendship is strained by the girls’ crimefighting, leaving Robin in Princess’ agenda. 

Plot

Part One

It's morning. The Powerpuff Girls hear a noise from outside, so they go check what's going on. When they notice a truck from Moving Company, they hide behind the bush and watch the crew from business. Then girls see a box with toys and the girl behind it, so Bubbles calls her and jumps from the bush. Bubbles asks the new neighbor what her name is, if she likes drawing and what her favorite color is. The girl introduces herself as Robin Snyder, and adds that she likes drawing elephants and will go to Pokey Oaks starting next week. Then Bubbles introduces her sisters and all girls go to Powerpuff's House, where they meet Professor Utonium.

The girls go to their room, where they play for long time. Professor Utonium enters the room and informs the girls that Robin's mom called and she has to return to home, then Robin suddenly discovers that girls are floating and they have superpowers. The next day, the girls are still playing. Meanwhile, the Mayor of Townsville eats a lot of pies and Ms. Bellum says that monster attacks the Townsville and his prized rosebushes are gone. Aghast, the mayor calls the girls, but they don't take the phone.

Ms. Bellum guides the mayor to the roof and shows a pink spotlight. When Robin tells the girls that her mom made sandwiches, they notice a heart signal and the Powerpuffs have to save the day. The girls' fun is constantly interrupted by crime fighting.

Part Two

When it's time for first day of school, the girls meet Princess Morbucks, who asks them to let her be a Powerpuff Girl for a day and ride in Daddy's limo with her to school. Blossom says that she wants to walk to school with Robin and sisters. Princess leaves the girls and when the Powerpuffs and Robin are reaching to school, Ms. Keane says that the Mayor called and girls must save the day. The girls again leave Robin. Then Princess comes to Robin and tells the story about herself, enjoying their time with expensive games.

When Princess and Robin watch an action movie, Robin complains that Powerpuffs are still fighting with villains, neglecting her. Princess says that The Powerpuff Girls don't have time for friends and then both drive to Mini-Mart by limo. Princess commands Robin that she has to steal some sweets, then calls to Mayor and says that he must call the Powerpuff Girls. When the girls are reaching to shop, they get a shock, because Princess and now tied up Robin were cooperated together. Robin admits and accuses girls that they neglected her.

Princess calls Robin stealer, liar and both are arguing face to face. Princess states that she doesn't need friends and when gets mad, Powerpuffs and Robin leave Mini-Mart and go to Robin's playground. The Powerpuff Girls apologize to Robin, but she doesn't feel pain anymore and understands the girls' situation. When the girls have a nice time together, the Mayor calls to Professor and says that he can't open the Pickle Jar. Professor says that the girls are pretty busy.
