"Just Another Manic Mojo" is the first half of the eleventh episode of Season 1. It first aired on Cartoon Network in the United States on February 3, 1999.

Synopsis

When the girls accidentally knock their baseball into Mojo Jojo's lair, he does everything he can to keep them there so he can set up a trap.

Plot

Mojo's days summed up in one picture.

A beautiful day in Townsville is a bad day for a people-haters like Mojo. But things start to look up when the Powerpuff Girls accidentally send their baseball through Mojo's window. While trying to aim the Giganto Destructo Powerpuffo Ray at the Girls, Mojo is forced to engage in a game of hide-and-seek. Looking for their ball, the Girls destroy Mojo's lab, except for the all-important ray. Mojo aims and locks the ray, only to discover that Bubbles is about to touch his favorite possession: the Ming Dynasty vase, stolen during the very first crime he ever committed. Of course, Mojo ends up in the line of fire as he tells them off, destroying the vase and making him finally give up. Fed up with the Girls he gives them their ball back and throws them out, only to find out the next day that he "saved the day" by giving the Girls their ball back and he screams in frustration.
