The Gift is the twenty-second episode episode (and the one-hundredth first overall) of Season 3 of The Powerpuff Girls. It aired on Cartoon Network on December 16, 2018.


It's Christmastime again and the girls are all set to give the Professor a mug sporting "World's #1 Dad". But during an argument between Blossom and Buttercup and Bubbles about if Santa is real, they end up breaking it in their scuffle. Now the three have to rush to get a replacement, not helped by the fact that some of their villains keep getting in their way.




  • This is the last episode to be aired in the year 2018.
  • This marks the third Christmas themed episode in the entire franchise after the original series special, 'Twas the Fight Before Christmas and You're a Good Man, Mojo Jojo from season 2 of the 2016 reboot.
  • The plot is slightly similar to the Regular Show episode World's Best Boss.
  • Running gag: Blossom does not believe in Santa.
    • Unlike her 1998 counterpart who believes in Santa, as the girls' 1998 counterparts teamed up with him in the original series special, 'Twas the Fight Before Christmas.
  • Blossom's bow in this episode bears a resemblance to her 1998 counterpart's bow and her Powerpunk Girls counterpart Berserk's messy hair bow.
  • The scene where the girls zap across the cash register shows the text of the ingredients each of the girls were made out of. This could be a reference to the conception of their 1998 counterparts in the 2002 prequel film of the same name.
