"Compiling the recent two Powerpuff Girls VHS releases, "Birthday Bash" and "Dream Scheme", "Down & Dirty" is the second DVD compilation of the hit cartoon series to be released on the market. Featuring some of the show's best episodes, Down & Dirty" has more too offer than it's original predecessor. As added bonus treats to viewers, the DVD contains character profiles, web links (for DVD-Rom players), a sneak preview of the new Cartoon Network series "Sheep in the Big City," and an interactive Powerpuff Girls Trivia Game that can be played on your DVD player.In watching the entire compilation, I was elated to see that my favorite villain, Princess Morebucks, was featured in three of the episodes, especially my favorite episode "Stuck Up, Up, and Away". Princess, who is the typical spoiled rich brat, desperately wants to become a Powerpuff Girl, however all the money in the world can buy her the superpowers she'll need to battle Townsville's legion of villains. Using witty lines (in response to Buttercup's statement that money can't buy superpowers, Princess replies "Oh Yeah, Tell That to Batman.") and bright animation, this episode is one of the series' best. Other great episodes include "Birthday Bash" where Townsville's villains unite to ruin the Girls birthday publicized birthday party, and "Schoolhouse Rocked" which features the Gangrene Gang and their new hangout place: Pokey Oats Kindergarten. Overall, both adults and children alike will love the Powerpuff Girls. The quality of both picture and sound is amazing on DVD, and if you haven't purchased a DVD player, please do so as soon as possible. DVD is today's most exciting way to watch films and shows and compared to VHS, the Powerpuff Girls look and sound fantastic in this digital format. "Down & Dirty" is a must have for any Powerpuff Girls fans!"
The Sandman, a septic sister, and more

"Another collection featuring those pint-sized heroines."Dream Scheme" has the Sandman, burned out after having to clamp down on delinquent sleepers, decides to put the world to sleep so he can get more than a couple of winks. The narration and character dialogue is done entirely in rhyming iambic pentameter. Examples from the Sandman: "Oh, those brats are ruining my ploy/By staying awake, they're stealing my joy/I'll pay them a visit, a little house call/And take care of this matter once and for all." (Rating: 5)"Just Another Manic Mojo" shows how insular and disconnected Mojo is from the rest of Townsville. However, I can understand, given how he perceives the "gum-chewing, finger-snapping, and inane gossip while waiting for the light to change. "Accursed people", indeed! He tries to get rid of the Puffs after their baseball lands in his volcano observatory, but he doesn't reckon on their mischief. Highlights: Bubbles and the gum-popping, and Mojo's photo album. And the scene where Mojo's turban is placed on his head is clearly taken from a similar scene involving Darth Vader in Empire Strikes Back. (Rating: 5)In "Down And Dirty," Buttercup's refusal to take a bath after fighting some substance-spewing monsters leads her to become a septic sister and alienating her from her sisters and the Townies. Highlights: the mucus-blasting mutant elephant and Buttercup's expression when she licks one of the elephant's discharges off her face. Also, the mayor receiving a complaint: "Do you think I'm blind? Of course I smell it." And the best lines: Buttercup: "Don't you know only big fat sissies take baths?" Bubbles: "I'm not fat." My favorite episode in this collection. (Rating: 5)In "The Mo Job," Princess and Mojo team up in a scheme to get rid of the Powerpuffs, by giving Princess Powerpuff powers. Their high volume exchange of their agreement, taking place in view of the full public, is a laugh. The slowed down dialogue in the climactic battle is another highlight. (Rating: 5)Major Man, a typical bemuscled, mousse-haired superhero spouting corny dialogue, steals the Powerpuff Girls' role as Townsville's superhero after he saves the people in "Major Competition." Do the Powerpuff Girls regain their spotlight? Oh, like you don't know? (Rating: 3.5)The bonus cartoon, three-part Sheep In The City, is more a C-feature than a B-feature. Do yourself a favor and rewind the video after watching "Major Competition." (Rating: 1)Overall rating: (5+5+5+5+3.5+1)/6 = 4.08, rounded to 4."
