Total Eclipse of the Kart is the twelfth episode (and the ninety-first episode overall) of Season 3 of the 2016 Powerpuff Girls series. It aired on Cartoon Network on August 12, 2018.


The Mayor holds a race for a mysterious chest that he found and all of Townsville's villains join in to win it. The Powerpuff Girls likewise enter to keep them from doing so, but naturally things escalate quickly.



  • The premise is similar to Whoopass a Go-Go! and The Powerpuff Girls Rule!!!.
  • This episode is the third half-hour, two-part episode to air since The Last Donnycorn and Never Been Blissed.
  • HIM, The Gangreen Gang, The Amoeba Boys, SedusaSilico, and Allegro are the only major recurring villains not to appear in the episode.
  • This marks Packrat's first appearance since Strong-Armed, Pug-Faced Paulie's first appearance since The Bubbles-Sitters Club, Poseidon's first appearance since The Buttercup Job and Donny's first appearance since The Last Donnycorn.
  • This is The Rowdyruff Boys' first appearance in the reboot, and their first appearance overall since their 1998 counterparts' last appearance in the original series season 6 episode, "Custody Battle".
    • This cameo appearance has been panned by fans of the show, despite them not having any new voice actors or new designs.
  • Mojo is actually shown as somewhat of an ally to the Powerpuff Girls in this episode.
  • The girls are shown singing a parody of Whitney Houston's hit song "I Wanna Dance With Somebody" when Bubbles turns on the radio.
  • The dial-up sound effect is heard when the Girls' vehicle shows to a crawl.
  • The Shark helmet that Boomer was wearing might be a reference to Sam’s Shark helmet from the Nickelodeon series Rocket Power.
  • Even though this was Jemmica's final appearance in the series, and when she changed her original form, this makes Jemoire's first appearance.
  • This reveals when the mage who banished Jemoire is actually one of The Mayor's ancestors.

    • So was I the only one to get a Wacky Races vibe off this one? (classic, not that new polished turd of a series).  Fuzzy was Luke...
    • Not the first time they did that - the race scene in The Powerpuff Girls Rule was also inspired by it
