Too Pooped to Puff 3

Even though the citizens of Townsville saved the day, the girls still appeared in the 1998-2001 animated episode outro at the end of this episode.

The usual thing occurs in the City of Townsville: something bad happens and the Powerpuff Girls come to save the day. However, after so many years of the Girls saving the day, the people start selfishly using them to do meinal duties (like replacing a lightbulb, cleaning up a litter box, etc.) Even the Professor is using them to give him the TV remote just because he can't reach it himself. Tired of them doing pretty much everything for Townsville, the girls leave the Professor (save for Bubbles, who grabs the remote to give it to him, only to throw it on the floor and following after her sisters).

The Girls relax on a cloud, while Townsville has another giant monster attacking. The people find them and, to their surprise, the girls want them to handle it! Due to them having the Girls doing everything for them, it's pretty much typical that the citizens have absolutely have no clue on how to handle a giant monster. And when they finally do, it's stuck on electrical wires and they spray it with water, effectively blowing it up. Thus, the citizens finally learn how to take care of themselves, except for the Mayor who asks the Girls to clean up the whole city.

So, once again, the day is saved, with no thanks to the Powerpuff Girls.


  • During the "day is saved" outro, the Narrator says "And so once again, the day is saved, with no thanks to the Powerpuff Girls!" and then says that he saved the day all by himself, even though the girls are still seen in their regular poses.
  • In the 1998-2001 animated episode outro, the girls are surprisingly still seen in their normal smiling appearance and in their normal poses at the end of this episode. This was done because Craig McCracken, his crew, the network's executives, and the animators decided to let the 1998-2001 animated episode outro establish itself for a few episodes before playing around with it some more. Also, the 1998-2001 animated episode outro is even hotter in color temperature.
  • This episode marks the second time the Citizens of Townsville save the day in an episode, the first time was in "Collect Her".
  • Some of a cheering crowd from this episode reappears in the episode "Reeking Havoc".
