Escape from Monster Island is the first episode of the 2016 Powerpuff Girls series. It aired on Cartoon Network on April 4, 2016.


Bubbles wins tickets to a concert. Unfortunately, she only won two tickets. Before she can choose which of her sisters to bring, the Mayor crash lands on Monster Island, and the girls go rescue him. Meanwhile, Blossom and Buttercup keep arguing on who should get the second ticket.


The story begins with the Girls as they're jumping on the bed while fantasizing about a boy band, Sensitive Thugs. The girls hear a question being asked on the radio as on what pet would the Sensitive Thugs gets. While Blossom and Buttercup don't have an answer, Bubbles believes that a wallaby would suit them, as it's cute, yet tough. This makes Bubbles the winner, and the Girls celebrate, but quickly realize that there are only two tickets, which means Bubbles must pick between Blossom or Buttercup. However, Bubbles' phone rings, which appears to be the Mayor, who calls for help because his plane doesn't seem to have a pilot. Blossom discovers the distress signal is coming from somewhere near Monster Island. Realizing this fact, the Girls set out to save him.

Once the girls reach Monster Island, they find the Mayor's plane, but without the Mayor. Before they can search, Bubbles discovers a little creature in the bushes, whose name is Fredrick. The girls then find out there are much bigger monsters on the island and fly to safety. When they take cover from the monsters, Blossom and Buttercup begin to argue about which one of them gets the ticket. Bubbles gets them to be nice to each other, and Blossom tricks Buttercup into saying she's a "buttzilla".

However in the end, Bubbles invites Fredrick instead of either the two of them.
