"Meet the Beat-Alls" is the second half of the twelfth episode in the third season of the Original Powerpuff Girls.

Plot

When Mojo Jojo, Him, Princess Morbucks, and Fuzzy Lumpkins become tired of the girls, they all meet each other and start arguing over at the girls' house. When they are about to go back to bed, they are zapped by three lasers coming from Mojo Jojo, Him, and Princess Morbucks, and then they are crushed by Fuzzy's boulder. While standing there looking at where the rock landed, they can't believe what happened and then they form the quartet villain group "The Beat-Alls."

Why It Can't Get Beaten

  1. Watching Mojo Jojo, Him, Princess Morbucks and Fuzzy Lumpkins getting tired of the girls at the start is pretty funny to watch.
  2. The plot is very creative and different here, as it has all the well-known villains beating up the girls after waking them up from an argument and then forming a quartet villain group called "The Beat-Alls" when succeeding - which is very different from what usually happens.
  3. The "Beat-Alls" title is a great parody of the 1960's rock band, "The Beatles", except with villains fighting rather than rock music. Speaking of which, the villains do a great job in their quartet group fighting against the girls and even beat up the said rock band.
  4. Although they stopped for 8 days when the Beat-Alls took over, the girls still try to fight back and find a way to break up the band by bringing a female primate (that the Professor whispered), which makes Mojo fall in love and even bring in Judy the zookeeper later on.
    • The Professor calmly talks to the girls and motivates them back into crime-fighting again along with whispering to them on how to break up the Beat-Alls.
  5. Speaking of which, the female monkey looks very convincing for a villainous crush. She even makes a pretty convincing parody of Yoko Ono. Her constant screaming references Yoko's infamously horrendous singing style.
  6. "Everyone seems to think you're lazy, but I don't mind 'cause I think they're crazy" & "But you used to be running everywhere at such a speed, but you think there's no need" - Professor Utonium to the girls.
  7. Good ending: The girls finally destroy the villains, and as for Mojo, they get Judy, zookeeper of the Townsville Zoo, out of the shop to get the female primate back - who turns out to be a real small monkey named Michelle rather than a primate crush for Mojo and Judy says that the monkey doesn't like Mojo due to him destroying Townsville all the time and giving monkeys a bad name. Then, the girls bring Mojo to jail and it ends with the narrator breaking the fourth wall and saying that the day was saved thanks to the Powerpuff Girls.

Bad Qualities

  1. Depending on your view, Mojo and the female primate screaming can get on your last nerves.
  2. It wasn't a half-hour special, which disappointed a lot of fans due to how awesome it was.

Trivia

  • The act of Princess Morbucks going on a crime spree with 3 felons as a team is later referenced in the Christmas special, "'Twas the Fight Before Christmas".
  • This episode, along with "Moral Decay" were the first broadcast episodes of the Original Powerpuff Girls (the show also being the first one to air after the June 2004 rebrand) after Cartoon Network in the USA rebranded to the City era on June 14, 2004.[1]
