The Powerpuff Girls: Dance Pantsed is a 2014 special of The Powerpuff Girls.

Plot

Mojo Jojo kidnaps an opera singer named Wendy Bags, a flamboyant mathematician named Fibonacci Sequins, and a somehow famous badger. After being humiliated yet again by the Powerpuff Girls, he devises a new plan, by creating a game similar to a different game which Bubbles seemed to enjoy. He sends it to Bubbles by pretending that it's the successor to 'Dance Pantsed Revolution', which is called 'Dance Pantsed REVILution 2' which turns out to be a trap turning Bubbles into a dancing robotic version of herself. Blossom and Buttercup eventually follow and are forced to capture the hostages Mojo Jojo previously captured, which Professor Utonium presumes that he is using them to get Chemical X. This forces the Professor to challenge the girls to a dance-off with help from The Mayor and Miss Bellum, but in the end, failed to do so. However, after help from Professor's love the Powerpuff Girls, they break free from Mojo's control and defeat him again. After the fight, he claims that his plan was not to get Chemical X, but rule Townsville by becoming a celebrity by starting a successful softball team including the girls. Eventually, Professor Utonium, the Mayor, Ms. Bellum and the Powerpuff Girls agree to be part of the softball team, just so they can win trophies. Unfortunately for Mojo, they tricked him and he is eventually taken to jail at the end.

Minor roles

Development

In the fall of 2012, former Beatles drummer and Thomas & Friends narrator Ringo Starr confirmed that he did voice work for The Powerpuff Girls via his fall update on YouTube. He also revealed concept art for his character, Fibonacci Sequins, as well as live booth recordings. In late January 2013, the Cartoon Network Upfront article officially announced the special set to premiere in 2013. However, as of December 16, 2013, the date has been changed to January 20th, 2014.

This is the official statement from Cartoon Network: “Sugar, Spice and Everything Nice…plus a dash of mysterious Chemical X” were the essential ingredients that created Blossom, Bubbles, and Buttercup also known as the Powerpuff Girls. This Emmy®-winning series, created by Craig McCracken, ran on Cartoon Network from 1998-2005 and will soar again as a brand-new, redesigned and re-imagined CG special coming in 2013 where the trio of pint-sized super heroines will be called upon to rescue not just the city of Townsville, but the USA and the world before bedtime! Featuring an original song “I Wish I Was A Powerpuff Girl” performed by Ringo Starr of The Beatles, who also portrays Townsville’s most famous flamboyant mathematician, “Fibonacci Sequins.” Originally titled this all-new original special comes from a powerhouse creative team featuring animation talent from around the globe including acclaimed director Dave Smith and award-winning art director Kevin Dart and is produced by Cartoon Network Studios in association with UK’s Passion Pictures. "Dance Pantsed" premiered on Monday, January 20th, 2014, and rolled out internationally beginning in February. The special also features the original voice cast reprising their roles.

Trivia

  • Bubbles is seen to have ice breath in this episode, despite Blossom being the only one to have it, even having several episodes in which she/others mention this fact.
  • Even though Buttercup is only on the phone for one second, she still seems to know exactly what the phone call was about. It would be quite obvious that they had to save the day again, but it is strange that she knew there was a robot so quickly.
  • It seems Buttercup really thinks Corgies are cute, which also shows her girly side.
  • The Professor was already in Townsville when he went to school as shown in Get Back Jojo and started his science career because he was saved by the Powerpuff Girls who had traveled to the past with the time machine he would still invent. However, in this episode, it is shown that he went to Townsville later on and was actually convinced to start his science career by a few famous scientists that are supposed to be long dead (except Stephen Hawking, who was still alive at the time this was made).
  • For the first time since "Silent Treatment", the "THE END" sign doesn't appear at all in this special.
  • This is the second piece of Powerpuff Girls-related media (and the only episode of the original Powerpuff Girls series) in which Craig McCracken is not involved at all (even though the Powerpuff Girls logo still says the show is created by him).
  • This episode was done in CGI (except in some parts where traditional hand-drawn animation was used briefly).
  • The Mayor is shown with his right eye open various times in this episode.
  • On the door to the girls' house, the number 107 can be seen.
  • This is the final time that the girls are voiced by their original actresses Cathy Cavadini, Tara Strong and E.G. Daily, as they have been replaced for the 2016 reboot.
  • It was the last time the 1998 logo was used. Later that same year Dance Pantsed aired, Cartoon Network revived it as a new series. The new series premiered April 4, 2016, in the United States, with a brand-new logo.
  • This episode is also the last production for the original PPG canon, as the reboot series is seperate from the 1998 series.
  • This was originally supposed to be released in 2013 but was delayed to 2014.
  • This special features Grey Griffin as an additional voice. This special reunites Griffin and Tara Strong, who had worked on the Nickelodeon and Nick Jr series The Fairly OddParents and Wow! Wow! Wubbzy! as Timmy and Vicky and Daizy and Wubbzy respectively.
  • This is the second episode where Mojo Jojo controls the girls. The first was "Simian Says".

Errors

  • Mojo is shown with red and black pupils, though in the series he has black ones.
  • Mojo has a red cape instead of a purple one.
  • The Powerpuff Girls' shoes are the same color as their dresses.
  • Bubbles doesn't have the 'X' on the back of her head.
  • Throughout the episode, Blossom, Bubbles, and Buttercup are depicted with eyebrows.
  • When the girls were having a team tantrum, they seem to cause the store to shake.
