The cutest superheroes ever to appear on the small screen battle a giant swarm of roaches led by the nefarious Roach Coach in the premiere episode of Craig McKracken's wildly popular cartoon series. Toonsville has been overrun with roaches, and now it's up to kindergarten wunderkinds The Powerpuff Girls to save their city from certain destruction. But Professor Utonium has told Blossom that it isn't right to harm creatures just because they're not pretty, so she refuses to let Bubbles and Buttercup squash the insect invaders. When the swarm forms one enormous roach and swallows the girls whole, however, Blossom realizes that the insect is as icky on the inside as it is on the outside and subsequently gives her friends permission to terminate with extreme prejudice. Later, as the series progressed, the short-but-strong trio found themselves forced to do battle with such formidable villains as malevolent monkey Mojo Jojo -who was never short on plans for tormenting the citizens of Toonsville.
