Ice Sore is the second half of the 8th episode in the first season of The Powerpuff Girls, following “Paste Makes Waste.”


On a very hot day, Blossom discovers that she has a new power: ice breath. Bubbles and Buttercup get annoyed by it because they don’t have that power. So, they try to do something to stop her. Blossom said at the end of the episode that her Ice Breath was used up, but she continues to use it in other episodes. When the ice breath ran out, she used fire breath as a replacement because it is now chilly and cold.



  • At Bubbles’ request, Blossom makes the floor all ice like in the Tom & Jerry short “Mice Follies”. Bubbles also mentions that Tom & Jerry is her favorite cartoon.
  • It is revealed that Bubbles speaks Spanish in this episode.
  • Although Blossom’s ice breath runs out in the end of this episode, she regains it for the rest of the series. Most notably in Stuck Up, Up, and Away and Helter Shelter.
  • The ending also reveals that Blossom only has her ice breath in hot weather. In colder weather, it changes into fire breath.
    • Most likely this is intended to be a joke.
  • If you pay close enough attention after Blossom breathes fire and burns Bubbles and Buttercup, you can see that the toasted two are charred versions of the same pose as all three of the girls were briefly in during the episode “Major Competition,” after a gust of wind from Major Manblows them around.
  • The moral is that bragging is not good, and if you brag people will count on you to fix something your ability is said to fix.
