Seeking to defeat thePowerpuffGirls once and for all, Mojo Jojo creates the Rowdyruff Boys – Brick, Boomer and Butch – to fight them. When regular fighting doesn't work against the boys, the girls must use their feminine wiles to seal a victory.
This is the first time the girls died and then they get revived (second time for Blossom, first time was in Abracadaver when she brought herself back to life and unhypnotized). The second was in "Mojo Jonesin'" and the third and final time was in "Knock It Off".
This is the first episode to have a character die in the show, which is The Rowdyruff Boys, but they were later resurrected by HIM (the second being Bunny, third being the Broccoloids and Dick Hardly being the last).
The 1998-2001 animated episode outro has more color in it.
When Bubbles crashes into Mr. Cooper's store and mistakenly apologizes to "Mr. Looper", this is a likely reference to Sesame Street, in which Big Bird frequently mispronounced the name of the owner of the general store, Mr. Hooper, often calling him "Mr. Pooper", "Mr. Looper", or other malapropisms. This gained fame in 1982 when the actor who played Mr. Hooper died, and the writers decided to incorporate that aspect as well by having Big Bird be told Mr. Hooper was dead, causing Big Bird to finally get his name right in memoriam.
At around the 9-minute mark, the octopus the girls were fighting is briefly seen lying dead in the background.
This episode is the first time we see Mojo Jojo act more like the monkey he is than a criminal mastermind, as his fit of rage upon being arrested multiple times has him screeching like a monkey, slamming his fists on the ground, and climbing on the tire swing and the bars of his cell.
This is the only episode that the Rowdyruff Boys’ sneakers have three rectangles, all future episodes have two rectangles.
During the prison scene when Mojo tells the boys about the girls, Brick is on the right, Butch is in the center, and Boomer is on the left. When the boys say "Yeah!" in response to Mojo's words, Brick and Butch change positions.
In the same scene, Butch's mouth doesn't move.
When the Rowdyruff Boys throw the vehicles at the Powerpuff Girls, the shadows of the vehicles are shown approaching them in an overhead shot. After the girls take off, however, the shadows have disappeared.
In the scene where the boys cover the girls in smoke, Blossom's mouth doesn't move when she coughs.
After the boys performed the final blow, as the girls are falling; Blossom falls to the top of the video frame, Buttercup, to the bottom left, and Bubbles to the bottom right, when the boys dive bomb towards the girls, they go in the wrong direction, Brick goes to the bottom of the frame, Butch to the top left, and Boomer to the top right.
When Boomer tackles Bubbles, she kicks him into the wall of a yellow building, and Butch is thrown into the same building seconds later.
When Brick yells "Ballistic Barrage!", they hop out of the same building Brick crashed into, which was miscolored red.
Another goof is that Boomer and Butch were near a window, but when the boys swirl to the ground Boomer is to the left of the window. Additionally, this building had doors when Bubbles kicks Boomer into it.
When Brick is about to grab Blossom's hair, her bow disappears.
Mojo creates the boys at night so that the moon is in proper alignment, but when the boys bust through the ceiling a minute later, it's daytime.
Although this episode premiered in 1999, it was produced in 1998 according to the credits. It is also the last episode to be made in 1998. The next episode, "Uh Oh Dynamo", would be the first and only Season 1 episode made in 1999.
