Third Time's the Charm
(5 out of 5 stars)
"The third Powerpuff Girls DVD to be released so far, "The Mane Event" is far and away the best of the three. The first two volumes, "Down N' Diry" and "Powerpuff Bluff", had little in the way of special extras aside from trivia games and DVD-ROM options. "The Mane Event", on the other hand, is a treasure trove of special features. The disc includes only 6 cartoons culled from the show itself (the other DVDs had 10), but it makes up for it by including two cartoons that have never been seen before on television, "Helter Shelter" and "Power Lunch". These two cartoons arent the best PPG cartoons ever made, but they alone are worth the purchase. The biggest bonus of the DVD is the addition of Craig McCraken's first student film with the girls, "Whoop@@#$$ Stew", which not only can be watched with or without McCraken's audio commentary, but the use of the angle button on the DVD remote switches the cartoon from full color to pencil test. Audio commentary can also be heard on two other cartoons on the disc. The Mayor babbles through "Something's a Ms." while Mojo Jojo tears apart "Slumbering With the Enemy". These commentaries are not meant to be informative, just very fun. Other features include the Powerpuff music video "I'm a Super Girl", bios on some of the characters, interactive DVD-ROM games, and a trailer for previously released PPG and Dexter videos. The only thing that this DVD lacks that the VHS tapes with the same material has are the bonus "Cartoon! Cartoon!" shorts, which are no big loss. I think everone has seen "Dexter's Lab: A Story" enough times on Cartoon Network. All in all, "The Mane Event" is 133 minutes of Powerpuff fun you will not want to miss."
Great Powapuff DVD!

Scary, but funny. O, & that Boogie Man funky thug creep is makin this Discoball, & theres lots of funky Nightmares like the gangsta bug.

"What can I say about this DVD? The cartoons are a great selection, that's for sure. I liked seeing the two episodes that were never released on television, they were wonderful. I gave that five stars. But man, I wish I could give the DVD seven stars. The design blew my mine. It was definately the COOLEST most cheerful DVD I've ever come across. You start out on the main page. You can watch all cartoons, select a cartoon, select language, or adventure in Townsvill. I went straight to adventure in Townsville and I was having fun just looking over Townsville! You then click on a building (Pokie Oaks, Mojo JoJo's, Townsville broadcasting system, ETC) and the screen will close up into the building so you're inside. Each room has motion inside and sound and each room has different special features that you would expect to find in that specific room. Not only is the cartoon great but now it's Jam Packed with special features. I bought this for my little brother, but I love it more than he does!(He likes it too)"

"I have to admit that I have always had a soft spot for the Powerpuff Girls. I find the frequently tongue-in-cheek humour to be very witty and like most good cartoons are, this one is thoroughly entertaining for both kids and adults alike. My favourite Cartoon Network character is actually Dexter's Lab but until they release that on DVD I guess this will have to do as second best. This DVD has been very well thought out and designed and contains good bonus features as well as 10 great episodes. Highly recommended for a good laugh!"
