"See Me, Feel Me, Gnomey" is the sixth episode in the fifth season of the Original Powerpuff Girls.

Plot

In this musical episode, the girls are overwhelmed with the crime in Townsville. An evil gnome (voiced by Jess Harnell, also voice actor of Wakko Warner) grants them the wish of peace in exchange for their powers and ends up inducting the people of Townsville into a cult. But when the girls realize the need for balance in the world, they themselves end the deal and send the gnome into nonexistence, returning Townsville back to normal.

Why It Rocks

  1. The musical numbers here are very well done and everything being turned into song is well executed here and relates to the storyline, with the the villains destroying Townsville, the girls stopping them but not succeeding and a gnome introducing himself when a raindrop falls to the ground.
  2. Some emotional moments, such as when the girls lost and sang a song on how crime-fighting is very hard with a rainy background and the girls saying that they're not giving up their powers.
  3. The red wind clouds having singing voices is pretty impressive, along with a gnome appearing out of a rose flower which grows bigger and standing on it. And even lots of roses appearing behind the city of Townsville.
  4. As mentioned above, the plot is a very nice change for the show and is well executed, with it being a musical-themed episode rather than a crime-fighting one with a lot of well written musical numbers and a gnome getting rid of crime-fighting in Townsville to give the girls a break.
  5. Some of the numbers are also relaxing to watch, especially "Sunshine Down on Me" & "Best Day of my Life", and are good if you're very tired from a long day of school/college/work. They also have good morals, as well.
  6. The girls fight the gnome and making him silently explode into pieces, trying to fight the other villains in song at the start and for making the town bright and happy again and are thanked by the townspeople in song and sing a nice and heartwarming song about why everyone can't just get along.
  7. It had a bright and heartwarming ending, as mentioned above, with everyone (even the villains) singing the girls' lovely song and it ends with the narrator saying that the day was saved thanks to the Powerpuff Girls in song.

The Only Bad Quality

  1. Some of the musical numbers tend to drag out a bit, and are also pretty corny and unoriginal.

Reception

  1. It holds a rating of 8.1 out of 10 on IMDB.

Trivia

  • This is the only episode of the original series to not have the intro at the start and it also doesn't have the narrator at the start, but rather Mojo Jojo saying "the city of Townsville".
  • This episode was banned in the United States due to its references to Christianity. It was however released in the United States on DVD in 2009 and on streaming services such as iTunes, Google Play, Amazon Prime, Netflix, and Hulu but was excluded on HBO Max.
    • In addition. it also had some flashing lights, much like Electric Soldier Porygon, so this episode gained small controversy for that.
  • Craig McCracken wanted Jack Black to voice the Gnome, but the deal fell through due to Black being too busy and expensive.
