Buttercup the third of The Powerpuff Girls known as “The Toughest Fighter.” Her signature color is lime green and she is also best known for her aggressive and tomboyish demeanor and dislike of “girly” things.



Whoopass Stew – A Sticky Situation is the first ever appearance of The Powerpuff Girls. It was a project that Craig McCracken made while in CalArts college in 1992. He sent it off to Cartoon Network, who renamed it “Powerpuff Girls” as “Whoopass Girls” was an inappropriate name for the channel’s target audience. McCracken had four shorts planned out, but only this one got finished due to Cartoon Network’s lack of interest in the original concept.


The opening title begins with an early version of Professor Utonium using the original recipe of sugar, spice and everything nice to try and create the perfect little girl, but he accidentally adds a can of Whoopass and creates The Whoopass Girls. In a similar way to the current series, the girls race towards an early Gangreen Gang and beat them up.

Main story

The Amoeba Boys have robbed the local bank and the girls attack them, but end up getting stuck to them. They then fly them to the sun where they apparently evaporate from the heat and the day is saved.
