HistoryEditThe powerpuff girls started as an early 1992 film by a young student attending the California institue of Arts titled "Whoop-Ass Stew: A sticky Situation" Staring the Whoop-Ass Girls.
In 1994 it was selected to be in the Sick and Twisted Festival of Animation and later the same year it was picked to be a mini-cartoon in the "What a Cartoon! Show". After a year, another cartoon was made due to the popularity with the studio and those who watched it.
The series however did not kick off until November 18th 1998 when it began to premiere along-side Dexters Laboratory. It only aired on Friday nights until a season had gone by when it began to air weekends, then eventually everyday. After six seasons it went onto hiatus until its special anniversary approached.
In 2009 a marathon had shown almost all of the episode, ending with the Special/Series Final. Which aired on the series tenth anniversary. It aired for a while on Cartoon Network with Dexter, Courage, and Ed Edd and Eddy for a while. But now can only be seen On Demand or the internet. However severly videos and Dvd's were also produced.
In the year 2005 a anime had been in the works over in Japan. It officially aired Saturday from the first of July until December 23rd 2006. Then once more from January 6st until June 30th 2007. The series has only been one season with no announcements of a following season.
The series while keeping most of the things the same. Also went in a very different route. From changing certain characters genders, to giving Blossom personality traights she never had originally.

There was also another attempted spin-off that may have originated into a new series had it been popular. It was called Dream In Style, which featured more teenage girl objects like makeup and a girlier art style. A lot of merchandise and few videos had been made for it.
After a year of being released, Merchandise began to arrive. Ranging from Coloring books to costumes and even exclusive magazines. While series creator Craig Mckracken hadn't been expecting this, he always enjoyed seeing the series taking off in such a manner and could often be seen in photographs with many of the merchandise pieces.
