Summer Bummer is the ninth episode (and forty-eighth episode overall) of Season 2 of the 2016 Powerpuff Girls series. It aired on Cartoon Network on May 28, 2017.


The girls' day at the beach is disrupted when the Bro Sharks take over. The girls must overcome their differences and work together when the Bro Sharks challenge them to a volleyball game.




  • This is the second time in the 2016 series that the girls are seen in their swimsuits. The first time was in "'Man Up 2: Still Man-ing".
  • This marks the first time Kevin Michael Richardson comes back from the original series to voice a character in the reboot.
  • The Bro Sharks are obvious parodies of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and the Street Sharks.
  • When Blossom is reading a book about a French detective named Tatou was a female counterpart of British detective Tintin from The Adventures of Tintin, a Franco-Belgian comic book series.
  • This episode shared the same title from a The Fairly OddParents episode. Both the show and the season shared their character designer Dean Heezen.
  • This is the second time Buttercup's 1998 counterpart was shown in the title card, the first time being "Clawdad".
  • The voiceover announcer reading the laws of the beach sounded just like the Narrator. It was possible that the Narrator is doing the voiceover announcing.
  • Buttercup's line "Enough jabberjawin'" was referencing of a Hannah-Barbera character Jabberjaw has been mentioned in this episode.
  • Running gags: The Bro Sharks doing air guitar and the Professor keep checking if he packed stuff in the car.
  • This is the second time the Mayor has a second doppleganger. His first doppleganger is Baron Von Mayorsly in "People Pleaser".
  • The plot is similar to the Atomic Puppet episode "Bend it Like Joey", in that the main characters were unable to get along at first, but then teamed up when they were getting their butts handed to them by an opposing team.
  • Errors: Octi's eyes were open wide instead of half-close.
