The Stayover is the third episode of the 2016 Powerpuff Girls series. It aired on Cartoon Network on April 5, 2016. This episode focuses on Bubbles.


Blossom is woken up after the candy party then she felt confused because her room was a mess. She also woke up Buttercup to recall the real event. However, after they recalled the actual incident through flashbacks, they were confused looking for Bubbles who disappeared.


The girls have a slumber party and wake up not remembering anything. Bubbles is missing, there is a bull in the kitchen and Mojo Jojo is in the house dressed up in a frock with makeup on. Little do they remember what happened. The previous night, the girls got crazy and ate a lot of candy. The Professor warned them not to eat too much but they ignored his plea. That night Mojo Jojo had plans of killing the Powerpuff Girls, but the girls grabbed him happily inside the house giving him a makeover. Back to the present, Blossom, and Buttercup go out to find Bubbles. They realize how much trouble they caused the city. They had thrashed a bridge and the bull in their kitchen was a bull from the bullfighting place they went last night. Expecting to find Bubbles there, Blossom and Buttercup go to a play area. The boy in the counter says that whatever was there last night was smashed and made into baseball caps, thinking that Bubbles was also smashed, Blossom and Buttercup go back home to apologize to the Professor but find Bubbles there. They are happy now. The girls sacrifice their tickets to the amusement park to a family who had struggled because of them.

Expect, unlike Woltz who screamed in horror to see his horse is now dead and been disembodied, seeing the piñata Blossom didn't even fazed her probably because she knew it was a head of a piñata from her and her sisters' slumber party and also because she have a headache and stomachache from eating so many candies at their slumber party to even care.
