"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."

"OK! Now, let's get started. Here's the episodes of what they're about. Birthday Bash: This is the best episode on da video!!!!!!!!!!!! Well, Its the Girls birthdays, & Mojos present is soo funny! The robot says "I am I gift from Mojo Jojo! Enjoy your birthday, or it will be your last!" hahahaha! The rocket from Princess was cool too. And the funniest present of them all was the Ameoba Boys Powerpuff Voodoo Dolls. I cracked up. And Him gives candy. (5 stars) The second one was Beat Your Greens. Another hillarious episode. It's when these evil Brocli Aliens plant brocli spores on the farm & the kids don't like Brocli. O, it's soo funny when this young dad says 2 his baby boy: "Here comes the Brocli express! Woo Woo!" O, & the brocli Aliens sound like robots with their eyes open. But, with their eyes closed, they sound like evil babys. Geesh! And, its hillarious when the kids & Powerpuffs chomp them up. (5 stars) 3d is Paste Makes Waste. Well, this boy in class, Elmer eats paste & these bullys like Mitch, Buttercup, & these 2 weird twins laugh at him 4 being a paste eater. Buttercup throws paste all over the table by saying: "Eat this, paste eata!" And when Elmer eats toxic with a bug, he turns into a man monster. Elmer puts paste all over Townsville, & it's surprising that the Mayor dosen't say anything! Idiot! Blossom & Buttercup get absorbed, & Buttercup says "I'mmmmmmm SOA-AAAARRRRR-REEEEY!!!!!!!!!!!" And Elmer says she's cool now. (5 stars) 4th is School House Rocked. Well, the Gangreene Gang go 2 school, Mr. Wednesday wanted them 2. That man sounds soo boring. But, I T loves this episode. The Gangreene Gang always fool & trick people into letting them eat food & stuff. When Ace drops it & says sorry, he really does it on purpose! Jerk!!! O, the begenning wuz kool when Ace & Snakey was playin a Powerpuff game with Bubbles vs. Fuzzy Lumpkins. Why didn't he give the Powerpuffs mean presents in Birthday Bash? Well, Ms. Keane thinks the girls we're splatting paste in school, but its the Gangreene Gang's fault of course. O, it's so funny when Billy shows he has 1 eye. HA HA HA HA HA HA! Also, when Grubber pretents 2 be a human. HAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!! & when Turo holds up this deadly stapler who pretends its a girl. HA! & the stupid evil gang tricks the kids into playin Dodgeball. They cheat by throwing balls at the kids. Nasty freaks!!! (5 stars) Last, but not least is Los Dos Mojos. It's when Mojo destroys Townsville lighley. when Bubbles is on the ground, she hears Mojos words & teleports & wakes up thinking she's the real Mojo Jojo! AAH! She destroys townsville with dark shadowey eyes! GEE! Its soo funny when she says "I am not Bubbles! Bubbles is not my name! If u adress me by Mojo Jojo, that would be correct! I am bad, I am evil, I am Mojo Jojo!!!" Mojo Bubbles laughs like a snake. hehehe. O, she also even says "Its time to keep your maker!" & Blossom & Buttacup say "U LEAVE THE PROFECCER OUT OF THIS!!!" & Mojo Jojo Bubbles also says "Alone shall I rule this world!" & also even "What's the matta Buttacup? Afraid 2 fight?" She also kicks Mojo out of his house! (5 stars) O, the Courage bonus episode Journey to the Center of Nowere is awsome too! Well, there's these little monstrous eggplants who thinks Muriel is their enemy. O, it's soo hillarious when Courage disguises as the Great Eggplant! He says, "Fellow Eggplants, Muriel is not our real enemy." Also, he even says: "Great Eggplant says, do this funky!" (5 stars) This is da best Powerpuff video in the collection yet!"
Mostly good collection

"This is the second of three in a series of detailed reviews from the videos comprising the Powerpuff 3-Pack. Video: Birthday Bash."Birthday Bash": There's nothing ordinary about the Powerpuff Girls, and their birthday party is no exception. Despite their attempts to have a simple birthday celebration, Mojo, Princess, the Amoeba Boys, and Him have sent them presents meant to destroy them. (Rating: 4)."Beat Your Greens" is the crown jewel here on how to get kids to eat their greens. Broccoloid aliens sent a mind-control spore that infects the Farmsville broccoli supply. Kids don't like broccoli so they don't eat it. The attempts of one parent to coax his baby son is funny, comparing the broccoli to an X-Wing fighter, a pirate ship, etc. The way the kids defeat the Broccoloids is creative. "Release the cheese!" There's also a line taken from Apocalypse Now, which only parents might get. Funny line from Bubbles: "That scared the pants off me!" (Rating: 5).In "Los Dos Mojos", the Girls are busy fighting Mojo, but Bubbles accidentally gets knocked on the head by an I-beam and wakes up thinking she's someone else. Blossom and Buttercup soon find their sibling dressed in a familiar turban and cloak, speaking in such a way that she constantly reiterates, restate the same thing over and over, repeats everything she says. Bubbles' manner of speaking is simply funny! "I am bad. I am evil. I am... MOJO JOJO!" The way she taunts Buttercup--"Afraid I'll whip the skirt off you?"-- and her imitation of Mojo's laugh is also amusing. (Rating: 5)Elmer Sglue (Elmer's Glue, get it?) is picked on in "Paste Makes Waste", mostly by Mitch, but the icing on the cake comes when Buttercup, encouraged by Mitch and the others, except for Blossom and Bubbles, cries out, "Eat this, paste-eater!" and hurls a clod of paste at him. An accident makes Elmer a giant behemoth hell-bent on getting even with those who picked on him. Basically a well-taught lesson on why it's bad to pick on others. (Rating: 4)"School House Rocked" has the Gangreen Gang being caught by truant officer Jack Wednesday (guess how this guy talks?) and being sent to (what was Wednesday thinking?) Pokey Oaks Kindergarden, where they cause all sorts of trouble. (Rating: 4).Despite the label on the video, the bonus cartoon features Cowardly Dog's fight against some hostile eggplant, not the Sheep In The City cartoon. (Rating: 3).Overall rating: (4+5+5+4+4+3)/6=4.2, rounded down to 4."
