In the Doghouse is the fifteenth episode (and the ninety-fourth episode overall) of Season 3 of the 2016 Powerpuff Girls series. It aired on Cartoon Network on August 26, 2018.


After talking to Bliss, who's still out in space, Buttercup claims she could likewise go into space to help fight aliens. Blossom claims otherwise and the two get into a bet on if Buttercup can do so. However, Buttercup's departure comes at a bad time when Pug Faced Pauly decides to use the Utonium household to lay low from the cops.

  • The self-destructing post card is a reference to Mission Impossible.
  • Buttercup is referred to as "The Grey One" multiple times in this episode, which could be a reference to the times Princess Morbucks called her "The Green One".
