The Powerpuff Girls are a trio of young sibling superheroes in the Powerpuff Girls animated franchise. Their father, Professor Utonium, created them with an accidental dosage of Chemical X while trying to create the perfect little girl.

Early life

As famously shown in the original series' opening scene, the girls were conceived by Professor Utonium, who initially meant to create the perfect little girl with a mixture of "sugar, spice, and everything nice." However, the professor accidentally smashed a container of Chemical X to concoction, causing an explosion that hurled him back at his laboratory. Upon waking up to discover three girls floating in the air, Blossom, Bubbles and Buttercup were born, which led to Utonium adopting them as his daughters.[1] In both the episode "Mr. Mojo's Rising" and The Powerpuff Girls Movie, the accident Utonium caused was revealed to have been the result of his former chimp assistant Jojo, who pushed the Professor towards the Chemical X container. The same Chemical X explosion that created the girls also affected Jojo, who had been mutated to a superhuman intelligence and was eventually left out of the Utonium family to become Mojo Jojo.[2][3]
