|Episode name pun on: The band, Twisted Sister|
|Airdate:||May 26, 2000|
|Director:||John McIntyre and Craig McCracken|
|Writer(s):||Amy Keating Rodgers and John McIntyre|
The Powerpuff Girls come back from a long day of crime fighting, but then the Professor tells them to do chores, despite the fact that they are very tired. So, to help them do crime fighting, they chose to create another Powerpuff Girl. They sneak into The Professor's lab, and they try to create a new Powerpuff Girl. Unfortunately, they do not have the right ingredients so they use artificial sweetener instead of sugar, dirt and twigs instead of spices and they put in what they think is nice, including:
- Crayons, books, lizards, flowers, computers, footballs, stuffed animals, calculators, a mackerel, more flowers, a compass, boxing gloves, a ribbon, art, bandaids, a smiley face, a globe and a knuckle sandwich (Buttercup punches the mixture).
Finally they add the accidental dose of Chemical X. The mixture explodes like the mixture in the opening sequence and it creates a hideously oversized girl. The girls introduce themselves and try to think of a name since the girl can't speak very well. Buttercup named her Braces at first, but Blossom disagrees with her idea. Eventually, Bubbles finally comes up with Bunny, and Blossom and Buttercup seem to agree with the name. The girls tell Bunny what she has to do and they send her off to fight crime while they try and relax.
However, Bunny misunderstands what she needs to do when being told to throw away criminals (anyone who has a gun) and ends up throwing the police officers in jail and letting the criminals run free. The girls see her on the news and when they find her, they tell her that she has been bad and is not cut out to be a Powerpuff Girl. Upset, Bunny flies away.
Straight away, the girls are surrounded by all the criminals and they are beaten up by them. Up on a ledge out at sea, Bunny hears their cries and flies to the rescue, attacking all of the criminals and shouting that she has done good. But just then, Bunny explodes and perishes, and only a piece of her dress remains.
The Powerpuff Girls mourn their loss, knowing that Bunny was good and on this one occasion, they were the ones that were bad. They wish they were not so mean to Bunny, as they did call her bad. And with that, they hang their heads in sadness, having paid for their meanness with Bunny's life.
"And so, for the first and final time, the day is saved thanks to Powerpuff Bunny", as which the Narrator weeps, and he sobbingly tells the viewers to go a commercial.
PROFESSOR: "Hello, my little angels. Welcome home. Big day out saving the world? Oh, that's nice. But don't forget, you need to clean your room, wash the dishes, take out the trash, finish your homework…
PROFESSOR: (continued)… fix the roof, eat your dinner, clean your plate, sweep the floors, brush your teeth, comb your hair… (overlapping the Girls' conversation) … make your beds, finish your homework…
BUTTERCUP: Ugh, I can't take this anymore.
BUBBLES: Yeah, I'm power-pooped.
BLOSSOM: I know we're overworked, but what can we do?
BUTTERCUP: We need some help.
PROFESSOR: (still speaking) … breathe in, breathe out, sit down, stand up…
BUBBLES: Yeah, three puffs aren't enough.
PROFESSOR: … answer the hotline and save the world!"
[The Girls are in the lab about to make a fourth Powerpuff Girl with a pot and a book entitled How I Did It]
- Blossom: Now, let's see. The first thing we need is sugar.
- Bubbles: I'll get it. (takes off)
- Blossom: And spice.
- Buttercup: I'm on it.
- Blossom: Next you need -
- [Bubbles returns with sweet powder]
- Bubbles: I couldn't find any sugar, but I did find artificial sweetener.
- Blossom: That's okay. Next you need.
- [Buttercup returns with dirt, twigs and leaves]
- Buttercup: I didn't know where to get spices, so I got dirt and twigs and stuff.
- Blossom: Well, that's kind of like spices. Put it in. Now, next you need everything nice!
- Girls: Oh, boy!
- [The Girls take off and put various items in the pot]
- Bubbles: Crayons are nice.
- Blossom: Books are nice.
- Buttercup: Lizards are nice.
- Bubbles: I like flowers.
- Blossom: Computers are good.
- Buttercup: A football.
- Bubbles: Stuffed animals.
- Blossom: A calculator.
- Buttercup: A mackarel.
- Bubbles: More flowers.
- Blossom: A compass.
- Buttercup: Boxing gloves.
- Bubbles: Ribbons.
- Blossom: Art.
- Buttercup: Band-aids.
- Bubbles: A smiley face.
- Blossom: A globe.
- Buttercup: A knuckle sandwich.
- Blossom: (looks back into the book) Okay. The final and most important step is to accidentally add Chemical X to the concoction.
- [The Girls look up with shocked expressions on their faces and streak away, then Blossom returns with a beacon of Chemical X]
- Blossom: (play-acting) Oh, look at what I found, girls. Chemical X.
- Bubbles: (play-acting) Be careful with that Chemical X.
- Buttercup: (play-acting) Yes, Blossom. Whatever you do, do not drop that Chemical X.
- Blossom: (play-acting) Don't worry. I wo - ("accidentally" drops the Chemical X in the pot) Whoops. I accidentally dropped the Chemical X and it fell into the concoction.
- Girls: (play-acting) Oh, no…!
- [Within seconds, the Girls look eagerly into their concoction that bubbles and explodes sending them into the wall, and they awake to find their creation not quite so perfect]
- Narrator: Oh, it's so sad, I can't take it. And so for the first and final time, the day is saved, thanks to Powerpuff Bunny!
- Bunny: Powawull!
- Narrator: WHY?!? Why? Oh, go to a commercial!
- The Powerpuff Girls (Blossom, Bubbles and Buttercup)
- Bunny (one-time only)
- Professor Utonium
- The Gangreen Gang (do not speak, only laugh)
- When the camera zooms out on the girls looming over the section of Bunny's dress, all of the criminals have seemingly vanished.
- When Blossom says "Yes, bad..." to Bunny, the stripe on Bubbles' dress disappears.
- This is one of the two episodes to have a bad ending. The other being Custody Battle, also one of the saddest episodes ever.
- In this episode, Bunny dies. In Custody Battle, the episode ends with the Narrator saying that "The day is doomed" rather than being saved.
- This is the second episode to have a character die in the show (the first being The Rowdyruff Boys, but they were later resurrected by Him), which is Bunny. Dick Hardly died next.
- This is the one of the episodes ending with the narrator saying his catchphrase differently "And so for the first...and final time, the day is saved, thanks to Powerpuff Bunny."
- The ending of this episode was later referenced in "Strong-Armed", an episode of the 2016 TV series, in which Bubbles' gravestone is seen and the Narrator is heard tearfully saying "And so once again, the day is saved, but at what cost?!" and cries hard before quickly saying "Wait, what, oh, there's more?" in a normal tone.
- This is one of two episodes where the Gangreen Gang are shown to be truly dangerous instead of just teenaged hoodlums (the first being Buttercrush where Snake tries to kill Bubbles and Blossom by dunking them in acid). In this episode, Ace threatens a man with a knife unless he hands over his watch.
- In this episode, the Chemical X that Blossom "accidentally" drops into the concoction which created Bunny is a neon-ish blue/green color. In every other form of Powerpuff Girls media, except for Powerpuff Girls Z, it is jet-black.
- The Villains from Powerpuff Bluff make a cameo when the news report shows the criminals escaping.
- The episode's title is a reference to the American rock band "Twisted Sister".
- This is one of Craig McCracken's ten favorite episodes.
- In Forced Kin, Bubbles does not want to ask help from others after being outmatched by an alien force. However, in this episode, she agrees when Buttercup said that they need help after doing numerous tasks in saving Townsville.
- This episode shows the girls extremely exhausted for a second time after Too Pooped to Puff.
- The narrator (tearfully) breaks the fourth wall in this episode when he said "Go to a commercial".
- This happens to be the late former voice actress Christine Cavanaugh's third and final voice over in the show. Her first two being Bud Smith in Supper Villain and Just Desserts.
- The previous episode also had Christine Cavanaugh voicing as a one (two) time character. More likely because her two Smiths parents co-stars, Jeff Bennett and Kath Soucie (also voice of Julie Smith) had more lines than Christine was given and was given the chance to voice another character after the Smiths roles were done.
- In 2000, Don Shank won a Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Achievement in Animation for this episode, along with Cover Up.
- This episode is available on the Cartoon Network Asia YouTube channel.
