Stupid Hotline!
The hour is late at the house of Utonium. The sky is dark and starry, crickets are chirping in the yard, most everything seems serenely calm tonight. From inside the domicile, BLOSSOM calls out to her sister…

BLOSSOM: Hey, Bubbles! Why don’t you check the messages?

So BUBBLES, smiling pleasantly, cooperatively picks up the receiver of the Powerpuff Hotline.

BUBBLES: Okay!

The answering machine of the POWERPUFF HOTLINE chirps out from the telephone’s speakerphone setting in the cheerful, if robotically disjointed, voice of an articulate young woman.

HOTLINE: You Have Three Hundred Forty One New Messages!

BUTTERCUP, BLOSSOM, and the PROFESSOR, who are all listening along with BUBBLES in the same room she is in, are all astounded to learn of this barrage of calls. BUBBLES, though, maintains the same cheery smile as the HOTLINE plays its…

HOTLINE: Fourth Message!
MAYOR: (Worried) You’re not going to believe this!

…And all the three hundred thirty-seven which follow. At this point, the voice of a SPEAKER informs us from the same secret location that the NARRATOR comes from that we all can…

SPEAKER: Catch all-new episodes of The Powerpuff Girls.
HOTLINE: Fifth Message!
SPEAKER: A lot of them.

BLOSSOM stares forward alone in astonishment.

MAYOR: The…!

But whatever the MAYOR has to tell the POWERPUFFS is promptly interrupted by a SPOKESMAN who tells us that…

SPOKESMAN: The Powerpuff Girls!

Can be seen on…

SPOKESMAN: Sunday at eight and eight-thirty, on Cartoon Network!
HOTLINE: BEEP!
