Brain Man

Brain Man


OPENING SCENE:


EXT DAYTIME SHOT OF TOWNSVILLE SKYLINE


NARRATOR: The city of Townsville! A smart town! A bright town! An enlightened town!


WHIP PAN TO:


INT SHOT OF POKEY OAKS KINDERGARTEN


NARRATOR (quietly): Oops... I'd better be quiet... I see the children are taking a test.


CUT TO:


A CLOSEUP OF THE PPG


SLOWLY ZOOM TO A CLOSEUP OF BLOSSOM


NARRATOR: Ah, that Blossom. Her quiet, intelligent brain is busy working out the answers.


SLOWLY ZOOM TO A CLOSEUP OF BLOSSOM'S FACE


[BLOSSOM'S face disappears and we can see her brain churning away and throbbing.]


NARRATOR: Well, maybe her brain isn't so quiet after all...


[The churning becomes worse, and her brain starts blowing off steam, faster and faster. Her face reappaears. Suddenly she starts staring straight ahead. A quirky one-sided grin appears. She throws her pencil away.]


BLOSSOM (tossing her head back and laughing maniacally): Ha ha ha!


[The CAMERA turns to watch her leap up and fly out the window.]


CUT TO:


A CLOSEUP OF BUBBLES AND BUTTERCUP


BUTTERCUP: Was it something I said?


BUBBLES: I hope it wasn't the stinky cheese sandwich I had for lunch.


DISSOLVE TO:


EXT SHOT OF A TOWNSVILLE SUNSET


NARRATOR: And so the day came to an end, and Blossom didn't return... gosh, I hope it wasn't something I said...

CUT TO:


INT SHOT OF THE PROFESSOR TUCKING IN BUBBLES AND BUTTERCUP


PROFESSOR: Oh, don't worry, girls. Blossom's tough. She'll come back when she calms down.


BUBBLES: Are you sure, Professor?


PROFESSOR: Yes, I'm sure.


FADE TO BLACK


CUT TO:


INT SHOT OF THE PPG EATING BREAKFAST IN FRONT OF THE TV


TV: We interrupt this program for an important bulletin -- (loudly): The town of Citiesville has been conquered! (quietly): although why anyone would conquer it is beyond me (loudly): but, nevertheless, Citiesville has been conquered!


BUBBLES AND BUTTERCUP: Gasp!


CUT TO:


A CLOSEUP OF THE TV


TV: And here is the conqueror!


BUBBLES' AND BUTTERCUP'S VOICES: Blossom?!


[BLOSSOM is dressed like Napolean.]


BLOSSOM: People of Citiesville, you have no need to fear. I promise I will be a fair and just ruler. Under my reign, you will know the prosperity you never knew in the past.


PROFESSOR'S VOICE: Girls,... you'd better go to Citiesville, and staighten out your sister.


BUBBLES: Okay, Professor.


BUTTERCUP: Blossom as Napolean. What's next -- the Mayor as Tiny Tim singing "Tiptoe Through The Tulips"?


PROFESSORE AND PPG: Ugh...!


MAN'S VOICE ON TV: Powerpuff Girls -- save us!


BLOSSOM (crossly): Quiet, you!


[She blows a puff of ice breath at him.]


MAN'S VOICE ON TV: Ahhh... chooo...!


CUT TO A POV THAT STAYS IN FRONT OF THE PPG AS THEY FLY UP THROUGH THE CEILING AND LEAVE TOWNSVILLE


CUT TO:


EXT SHOT OF BLOSSOM IN CITIESVILLE ADDRESSING A CROWD


BLOSSOM: I thought I already explained that I'm a fair and just ruler. There'll be no calling out for the Powerpuff Girls while I'm in command. Is that understood?


PEOPLE: grumble grumble grumble...


ONE MAN'S VOICE: Powerpuff Girls! Please save us!


BLOSSOM (sharply): All right! Who said that?! I've got my eye on you!


[BUBBLES and BUTTERCUP land.]


BUTTERCUP: Blossom, what the heck has gotten into you?!


[BLOSSOM looks around.]


BLOSSOM: Are you talking to me?


BUTTERCUP: Sheeshhh... Okay, have it your way. What the heck are you doing, Napolean?


BLOSSOM: I am addressing my people.


BUBBLES: Scaring them is more like it.


BLOSSOM (sternly): Don't make me use my ice breath!


BUTTERCUP: Oh, poo. You're our sister. Your head blew a gasket and now you think you're Napolean.


BLOSSOM: Do you think I'm stupid enough to believe... oof!


[BUTTERCUP and BUBBLES fly at her. The three tumble along the ground. BUTTERCUP makes a point of throwing away BLOSSOM'S Napolean hat. BLOSSOM tries to fly after it, but her sisters grab her feet. After a great deal of straining, the two start pulling BLOSSOM upward and back to Townsville.]


BLOSSOM: I shall return!


BUTTERCUP: That's MacArthur.


CUT TO:


EXT DAYTIME SHOT IN FRONT OF THE PPG WALKING TO SCHOOL


[BLOSSOM'S head is bowed in shame.]


BLOSSOM: I made such a fool of myself...


BUBBLES: It wasn't your fault, Blossom. You've just got to learn to take it easy.


CUT TO:


A FIXED POV BEHIND THE PPG THAT WATCHES THEM WALKING AWAY


BLOSSOM: Yes, I really was overdoing it.


BUTTERCUP: If you ask me, it was too much dessert. You'd better let me have yours from now on.


PPG: Ha ha ha.

CUT TO:


HEARTS AND STARS


NARRATOR: And so the day is saved, thanks to the Powerpuff Girls.


[The PPG appear.]


NARRATOR: You know, maybe I should take it easier too. Narrators are very hard thinkers, you know.


[The PPG stifle some giggles.]


NARRATOR: Why do people always giggle when I say that?
