The Powerpuff Girls is a cartoon series created by Craig McCracken, based on his CalArts student film Whoopass Stew, for Cartoon Network that originally aired from 1998 to 2005. It has spawned a theatrical feature film, an anime series and a CGI special that aired in January 2014. A reboot of the series was released in 2016 and ended in 2019.

The series revolves around three little girls named Blossom, Bubbles, and Buttercup. They were created by Professor Utonium when he tried making a formula for perfect girls, but he accidentally added Chemical X to it. This results in the girls having superpowers, which they use to fight villains and monsters.
