"The Boys are Back in Town" is the eleventh episode in Season 5. It aired on November 6 2003.


Part 1Edit

HIM is watching videos of The Powerpuff Girls defeating different villians. He gets angry when he sees something on one of the videos. The next day, the girls are fighting several monsters and have just defeated them when a large outcropping emerges from the ground and on it are The Rowdyruff Boys. The girls are shocked to see that they are alive but they mock the boys' new hairstyles. They then start to fight, but the boys are too well matched so they try what they did to destroy them last time: be nice and kiss them. However, to their horror they discover that the boys are immune to them and they only make them bigger and more powerful. HIM then appears and tells them about how he gave the boys a cootie vaccination and he then leaves the girls intimidated by the boys, now 10 times their normal size.

Part 2Edit

The boys start to gross out the girls by cracking their knuckles, picking scabs and spitting. They then attack them leaving them battered and bruised and they squash them into a hockey puck. They play hockey with them until Boomer hits them into an indoor car park. The girls go up to the top of the building, but the boys find them and use them to play a game called Ultimate Fight. They then stick a slug up Bubbles' back which causes Buttercup to attack Butch and make him bite his tongue. Under the other's laughter and embarrassment he shrinks. When the girls see this they do all kinds of things to embarrass the boys and make them shrink down so they are smaller than the buckles of the girls shoes. HIM then appears again and shouts at the boys for not defeating the girls and he makes them disappear. He then tells the girls that the boys are not destroyed and that they are back in town.

  • When Bubbles says, "Oh, whatever shall we do?", her mouth moves as though she is saying something else.
  • When Boomer says his name, his mouth isn't moving.
  • Just before the "Ultimate Fight" begins, Bricks eyelids are the colour of the girls' eyelids.
