I love Powerpuff Girls, it's one of my all-time favorite tv shows as a kid. However, there is a theory about the tv show that had me wonder. What if the Powerpuff Girls aren't superheroes but were pretending to be? I mean, really, they are little girls. But, could it be the reason for them imagining themselves as superheroes be a way to escape from the reality they're living in? In this theory, Blossom, Bubbles and Buttercup are normal kindergateners who imagine the world of Powerpuff Girls.
Warning: This will ruin your childhood. You've been warned.
Professor Utonium, the girls' father, is actually an ordinary pharmacist who makes medicine in his basement for a company. Because of this, the girls' are not allowed in the basement.
Mojo Jojo is the girls' half-brother. He is sexually interested in the girls and has attempted ways in capturing them in a way that seems fit. This is seen how he's a feared figure in the series.
Sedusa is the girls' stepmother. She would often abuse the girls when the Professor wasn't around.
Fuzzy Lumpkins is the girls' weird next door neighborhood. He loves to pull pranks on the girls whenever he got the chance.
The Gangreen Gang
The Gangreen Gang are basically a group of teenagers. They would often go along with the girls' imagination and play with them.
HIM is the brother of the Professor and the girls' uncle. He's evil because he's a homosexual; the Professor was highly against it, saying homosexuality was the devil's work and is deemed unholy. He never calls him outside his name and told the convinced the girls to stay away from "Him".
Finally, the Mayor of Townsville is actually the Girls' grandfather. He would go along with the girls' imagination, he would pretend to call them for help and would thank them for saving the day.
So was your childhood ruined?
