The Secret Life of Blossom Powerpuff is the twenty-ninth episode of the 2016 Powerpuff Girls series. It aired in United States on Cartoon Network on September 23, 2016.
Blossom misses out on joining a school club she wants to join. Bubbles and Buttercup recommend other clubs, prompting Blossom to imagine what it would be like joining them.
- This episode has several cultural references:
- Blossom's astronaut fantasy was an obvious Star Wars reference with Buttercup as R2B2 (obvious parody of R2D2) and Jared as Darth Vader.
- Blossom's break dance fantasy is a clear parody of 1980s films, such as "Breakin' 2 Electric Boogaloo".
- Blossom's break dance fantasy has a number of music icon references: Princess Morbuck's doing Madonna's Vogue and the C-A-S-H song was a parody of Village People's YMCA, Blossom dances Thriller by Michael Jackson, impersonates Elvis Presley, John Travolta of Saturday Night Fever and apparently the Bee Gees, dances to Push It by Salt-N-Pepa, and Singin' in the Rain by Gene Kelly.
- When Blossom was breakdancing a rap song, the music sounded a little bit like the rap jam in Neon Mixtape Tour from Plants vs. Zombies 2.
- This episode has several running gags:
- Buttercup being stomped by giant robots.
- Jared, in Blossom's fantasy, gives Blossom an A for achieving her goal.
- Blossom's fantasies getting crushed by giant robot attacks.
- Blossom yelling "Nooooo!" at the end of the fantasies.
- This episode's title is possibility a parody of the 2013 film, The Secret Life of Walter Mitty.
- This episode was aired almost exactly 17 years after "Dream Scheme/You Snooze, You Lose" from the previous Powerpuff Girls series.
- When Jared gave Blossom soda in her astronaut fantasy, she drank it with her helmet still being on.
