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.



  • This is the first time that the Gangreen Gang have been seen all together since Tiara Trouble. This also marks their only appearance in Season 3, and their last appearance in the reboot.
  • Snake and Big Billy are the only members of the Gangreen Gang to not have any spoken lines in this episode.
  • Lil Arturo's voice sounds noticeably different than usual in this episode, though the exact reason why is unknown.
  • In this episode, Snake's nose is smashed, just like it was once in Slave the Day and Schoolhouse Rocked.
  • This is the first appearance of Ace in the reboot (or any official piece of PPG media) since the character began appearing as part of the animated band Gorillaz. He's since been replaced with the band's original bassist, Murdoc, after the latter got out of jail. He is also once again 17 years old and is voiced Jeff Bennett instead of being speechless and 37.
