"Roughing It Up" is the first half of the thirteenth episode in the sixth season of the Original Powerpuff Girls.

Plot

The Professor takes the girls on a camping trip to teach them to relax, but they are interrupted by Fuzzy Lumpkins and his three nephews and not even he can keep peace.

Why It's Rough

  1. Most of it is a torture episode for the girls and the Professor, as Fuzzy Lumpkins and his nephews seemed to torture them every time they try to enjoy the great outdoors - they even prevented them from sleeping and got them covered in mud.
  2. Speaking of which, Fuzzy Lumpkins and his nephews are quite unlikable until the end, as they disrupt the girls for no reason when they're just looking to relax.
  3. The Professor never lets the girls fight Fuzzy Lumpkins despite them ruining their outdoor plans until the end.
  4. Plot Holes:
    • How could Fuzzy Lumpkins bring a house with him to the site without it getting damaged?
    • Also, how did the girls become friends with Fuzzy's nephews when they were rivals earlier? They just became friends when the Professor and Fuzzy were looking for their respective relatives.
  5. Fuzzy's nephews don't show remorse at all for disrupting the girls' relaxation, nor does Fuzzy himself.

Redeeming Qualities

  1. The girls are still good characters, and the Professor was mainly, as well.
  2. Good Ending: Despite being a plot hole as mentioned above, the girls and Fuzzy's nephews become friends and fish together, while Fuzzy Lumpkins gets his comeuppance with the Professor beating him up.
