The Mayor of Townsville (voiced by Tom Kenny), a.k.a. Mayor, is a primary character whose main role in the show is calling the Powerpuff Girls if trouble wreaks havoc over the town, but this is not always the case.
The mayor of Townsville who is referred throughout only as "Mayor" (even campaigning with the slogan "vote for Mayor for Mayor"), although he is referred to as "Barney" by his wife in the episode "Boogie Frights". He is short and old with a fringe of white hair around a bald scalp, a thick mustache and a scatterbrained-sounding voice.
He wears a monocle and a small top hat that floats just above his head. He also has moustache.
In "Tough Love", it is shown that he is very fond of pickles, and his little hat. He is almost completely stupid, and without the Powerpuff Girls to guide him, Townsville would have been destroyed long ago. The Mayor is married (to a woman who looks very much like him), although apparently their marriage is a rather lame one and he rarely mentions her.
In the episode "Powerpuff Bluff", he is willing to trade his wife in exchange for a "priceless, very rare, one-of-a-kind" porcelain poodle. In the episode, "Pee Pee G's", he shows Bubbles that he wears a diaper underneath his pants. He also had a crush on Ms. Bellum when she was replaced by Sedusa.
He has more than one telephone, in fact, has many, several telephones. In Geshundfight, he had lots of telephones because he heard all his Congressmen telling him that they will have to absent for a supposed meeting in the Confendence Hall because they were sick. Also, in Down n' Dirty, he had lots of complaints that he must do something with a scent, later to reveal it is actually Buttercup's filthy body, and he said "Do you think I'm blind?" to the people when they kept telling him that they smelled it.
It is not known how the telephone that he uses to call the Powerpuff Girls was invented, as it was not by A. Graham Bell. The phone has a red-handle, invisible pushing buttons, a calling lightbulb-like nose, and some eyes, with a smile. The phone could have a mind of it's own because in one episode, it changed it's expression from happy to scared. It was attached to his office desk after the Girls had defeated Mojo's giant scheme, which became the Powerpuff Girl occupation. Fuzzy Lumpkins had replaced it with a can-like string phone in the episode Impeach Fuzz.
His body was switched with Bubbles' body in Criss Cross Crisis, but his voice still remained.
His Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends counterpart is Bloo.
In The Powerpuff Girls Movie, he had a minor role, and his first words most likely to be obnoxiously heard towards the main audience was "Oh boy", and did not actually know the Girls were creating mass destruction, because he had to get a pickle and then go back to his work.
He was later kidnapped by Mojo Jojo in his attempt to overthrow the Earth and make it the Planet of the Apes, a parody of the 1968 novel Planet of the Apes. The Mayor survived the subsequent coup by Mojo's minions, and apologized for accusing the Powerpuff Girls as criminals and putting Professor Utonium in jail after he did not let Professor explain enough to him. According to the Mayor, he saw Mojo Jojo become a giant monster and fightning the Powerpuff Girls climbing a giant skyscraper.
The Mayor's Calls to the Powerpuff GirlsEdit
- Mojo Jojo is destroying the city
- Bank Robberies
- An old woman having her groceries stolen by the Gangreen Gang
- Help him catch his pig!
- He's sick
- Someone has robbed the diamond store
- He can't open his pickle jar
Demashita! Powerpuff Girls ZEdit
In Demashita! Powerpuff Girls Z, the Mayor Townsville is now the Mayor of Tokyo City. His design is distinctly different from his American counterpart, as he is of normal height and has no monocle or top hat. While less extreme in comparison to the Mayor of Townsville, the Mayor of Tokyo is very childish and has a very short attention span. He seems to worry quite a lot when the girls are fighting, and wishes that they could cause a little less damage. The Mayor, like many of the characters in the anime, loves sweets. The Mayor also has a younger brother, who is the Principal of the school Momoko, Miyako, and Kaoru attend. It was through him that Miss Bellum and the Mayor were able rearrange the classes, so that the girls would be in the same class. However, the Mayor and the Principal, don't always get along, and even the most minor of things will set off an argument, which often time leads to name calling. He also deals with his brother when the girls aren't doing well in class due to them skipping class to save the city.
- He likes pickles, and accused the Powerpuff Girls as pickle destroyers in the movie.
- He hates it when somebody wears his hat! In "Impeach Fuzz", it is shown that if his hat is worn by anyone other than himself, he will become vicious and will become just as powerful as the Powerpuff Girls.
- The Mayor somehow likes his job, despite the fact his city was destroyed by criminals.
- He declared pretzel Wednesday in The Rowdyruff Boys, the episode.
- His nose and moustache appearance inspired Mung Daal in the Cartoon Network series Chowder.
- He has kept a big bowl of candy before the episode Candy Is Dandy occured.
- In "Impeach Fuzz", it is likely that he has a pig, or he stole the pig from Fuzzy Lumpkins.
- He is shown in an episode that he dreams that we was buff, he named Townsville Picklesville, everyone there looked exactly like the old mayor, he saves the day and had a nightmare that the Powerpuff Girls beating up a giant pickle he said he was goin to hug.
- In episode 51 of Demashita! Powerpuff Girls Z, a caveman version of the Mayor that is closer to the original design does make an brief appearance.
