Toast of the Town is the first part of episode 6 of Season 5. It aired on September 12, 2003.


The Mayor wants the Professor to fix his toaster so he can have toast but when the Mayor finds Chemical X, he grows big, so it's up to the girls to save him from a fate worse than running out of pickles.


When the Mayor gets a craving for toast, he discovers his toaster's broken, so he gives it to the Professor to fix, but he accidentally discovers the Professor's secret stash of Chemical X, which the Mayor uses as a hair growth formula. But instead it makes the Mayor grow huge and it's up to The Powerpuff Girls to stop him.


Mayor: Is it done yet?
Professor Utonium: No.
Mayor: How about now?
Professor Utonium: No!
Mayor: Now?
Professor Utonium: No!
Mayor: Now it's done right?
Professor Utonium: No, no, no, it's not done.

Professor Utonium: Mayor? He's being too quiet.
(he peeks inside to see what the mayor is doing)
Professor Utonium: Mayor? What are you DOING?!
Mayor: Mayor got hair! Mayor got hair! Yummy X powder made Mayor's hair grow!

Blossom: Professor! What's going on?
Professor Utonium: Oh, it's the Mayor, girls. He got into my Chemical X so I scolded him, and now he's run off pounding.

Mayor: Whaaa!!!!! Mayor too high! Mayor wants to get down! Mayor wants to get down!

Ms. Bellum: Mr. Mayor! Don't you think you're being a bit immature?

Mayor: (repeated line) Mayor want toast!

Mayor: (frustrated) MAYOR WANT TOAST!!!
