Man Up 3: The Good, The Bad, and the Manly is the thirty-eighth episode (and seventy-seventh episode overall) of Season 2 of the 2016 Powerpuff Girls series. It aired on Cartoon Network on May 6, 2018.


Manboy returns with a cannon that plants beards on everything. When Bubbles gets hit with the ray, she gets a beard which the Professor helps her shave off. But the next morning, Bubbles has not only grown the beard back, but has taken on a behavior similar to Manboy. She rides off on a motorcycle. Later, Manboy crashes into the girls' bedroom, emasculated and devoid of his beard. Blossom and Buttercup have to make him believe he's tough enough to defeat Bubbles before it’s too late.



  • This episode marks Man Boy's third appearance in the episode and his first appearance in the second season.
  • This episode is the sequel to the season one episodes, "Man Up" and "Man Up 2: Still Man-ing".
  • This is Bubbles' second antagonistic role, the first time ever since season 1 episode "Bubbles of the Opera".
  • This episode has the longest title out of all the episodes.
  • When Manboy lost his beard, lost his manliness and his toughness, his characteristics changes and he acquires a childish behavior.
  • Error: The color of the title card would be supposedly blue since Bubbles is actually the main focus.
