Hustlecup is the thirtieth episode (and the one-hundred and ninth overall) of Season 3 of The Powerpuff Girls. It premiered on Cartoon Network on April 7, 2019.


The Professor invents a new hat that allows him to speed up, stop or slow down objects or people for a science fair. He forbids the girls from taking it out of the house. But Buttercup disobeys and shows it off at the park, where Ace gets interested. So he challenges her to a game of "Horse" to get it. If Buttercup won, she would get his scooter but she loses. So she asked her sisters for help. It’s ultimately up to Professor Utonium to defeat Ace.



  • The Gangreen Gang had not been seen together since Tiara Trouble.
  • The only true members of the Gangreen Gang to speak during the episode are Ace, Lil' Arturo, and Grubber. Snake and Big Billy are seen whispering some things at the beginning, but except that, they only laughed or shouted.
  • Lil Arturo's voice is still being made by Tom Kenny, but now it sounds huskier than before. Since Arturo is a young teenager, his voice could have simply changed through puberty.
  • In this episode, Snake's nose is smashed, just like it was once in Slave the Day and Schoolhouse Rocked.
  • This marks the return of Ace after he was part of the band, Gorillaz. It said that Murdoc did escape from jail and returned to the band on August 31, 2018. It is unknown why Ace came back as part of the Gangreen Gang or why Ace never mentioned he was part of the band. Gorillaz doesn't even appear themselves. Also, Ace is once again a teenager, whereas he was in his late 30s in his Gorillaz appearances.
  • In one scene, Ace's sunglasses make a resemblance to John Lennon's.
