Blossom (voiced by Cathy Cavadini) is a character in animated television series The Powerpuff Girls. She has long light red hair, pink eyes, and usually wears pink with a red bow on the top of her head and a heart-shaped hairclip when seen from behind. The self-proclaimed leader of the three Powerpuff Girls, she is often seen as the most mature, level-headed and composed member out of all three, but she can also be fussy, overbearing, vain, and overly analytical at times.
Bubbles (voiced by Tara Strong in the series and Kath Soucie in the What-a-Cartoon! episodes) is a fictional character in animated television series The Powerpuff Girls, quite similar to Dee Dee from Dexter's Laboratory, both by appearance and personality. She is portrayed as having short blonde hair in two pigtails, baby blue eyes, and dresses in baby blue. The ending theme refers to her as "the joy and the laughter", meaning that she acts as the baby of the group (despite being the same age) and is defined by innocence, playfulness and gentle demeanor. She does, however, have a tendency to be naïve, ditzy, submissive and sensitive, leading to her often being regarded, by friends and foes alike, as the group's weak link, a fact that has led to her being manipulated by many opponents
Buttercup (voiced by Elizabeth Daily) is a fictional character in animated television series The Powerpuff Girls. She has short black hair in a flip, light green eyes, and dresses in light green. Referred to in the ending theme as "the toughest fighter", she is the group's tomboy and is easily enraged. Sometimes her aggression gets the better of her, making her reckless, stubborn and even dangerous which sometimes results in her and Blossom fighting. She possesses a mean and somewhat vindictive streak not shared by her sisters. She also showed a selfish side in the episode "Moral Decay," to which she knocked out everyone's teeth for money.

Craig McCracken, a student of California Institute of the Arts, created The Whoopass Girls in 1992 in his short film The Whoopass Girls in A Sticky Situation. Spike and Mike's Sick and Twisted Festival of Animation selected the short in 1994; McCracken submitted it to Hanna-Barbera's innovative What A Cartoon! shorts program (eventually to be produced for Cartoon Network as "The Powerpuff Girls in: Meat Fuzzy Lumkins" as part of World Premiere Toons) while working on Dexter's Lab. As the word "whoopass" was deemed inappropriate for younger audiences, the word was replaced by "powerpuff."
The Powerpuff Girls TV debut in 1998 was the highest rated premiere in Cartoon Network's history. For several seasons, the series consistently scored the highest rating each week for the network across a wide range of demographics -- from young children to adults. In October 2000, Cartoon Network credited the Powerpuff Girls for its Friday night prime time ratings win among cable networks. By 2001, merchandising based on The Powerpuff Girls encompassed everything from T-shirts, toys and video games to lunchboxes and dishware. There was also a CD entitled Heroes and Villains, featuring original songs about the Powerpuff Girls characters
