Blossom, Buttercup, and Bubbles: these cartoon superheroes might be dainty, but threaten their hometown with annihilation, and they turn fierce. As The Powerpuff Girls, they also get the highest ratings on the Cartoon Network. Host Madeleine Brand talks with animator Craig McCracken, the man behind the crime-fighting trio, about the TV show and about the new compact disc issued in its honor. Heroes and Villains features 13 songs inspired by the Powerpuff Girls, performed by Devo, Frank Black from the Pixies, Dressy Bessy, and Shonen Knife. (7:07
