    Allegro is a recurring villain from the 2016 reboot of The Powerpuff Girls. He is a magical, flying panda bearcapable of causing the people of Townsville to go into a stupor of pure, 100% happiness and then they will have rainbow eyes just like he does and brainwashes them into acting idyllically blissful at all times. His exact origins are unknown until it is revealed in the episode "Largo" that he is the happy half of the Tempo, while his other half is a grumpy grizzly known as Largo. He first appeared in "Painbow" and was ultimately defeated in "Largo".

    He was voiced by Eric Bauza.

    Why He's Intentionally Anything but Happy

    1. For starters, he is a perverted and annoying panda, constantly getting people to do what he wants regardless of whether it is appropriate or not despite being a kids show.
    2. He is a generic doomsday villain with his only motive trying to make every citizen in Townsville overly cheery.
      • For example, in his first appearance "Painbow", which managed to have some kind of weird effect on the citizens of Townsville, causing them all to act happy and silly.
      • In his return in "Somewhere Over the Swingset", in disguise as a clown. Allegro had a giant swing set, that stretched over the clouds. He had kids go on there, and try to stay on the swing, but nobody could do it. This was all until the PowerPuff Girls rode on it, despite the Professor telling them not to. the PowerPuff Girls rode the swing, which sent them teleportation into a parallel universe, where everything was happy and perfect.
    3. On top of that, other than hypnotizing, his villainous role makes almost no sense as he just wants everyone to be happy and he isn't a villain that you can take seriously.
    4. He's also weak when he needed his minions to attack Largo instead of him.
    5. He brainwashed Blossom and Bubbles into a state of ignorant bliss, leaving Buttercup as the only normal person in town.
    6. He is also a pedophile as a follow up to the last reason, although he is trying to get everyone to do what he wants, his main target seems to be kids.
      • In particular, the infamous scene in "Painbow", where he, along with Blossom and Bubbles, twerk.
      • And because of that mentioned scene above, he has been deemed controversial by fans.
    7. His design is way too similar to Panda from We Bare Bears.
    8. And on the topic of his design, while it shouldn't be, it can be considered overly flamboyant or an insult to homosexual people.
      • To be honest, it also isn't very threatening.

    Intentional Happy Qualities

    1. He got his comeuppance in "Painbow" and "Somewhere Over the Swingset" when in the former, he tried to hug Buttercup, but Buttercup fought back. Every attack Buttercup landed on Allegro, caused him to break into pieces. After finishing him off, Allegro exploded, and imploded, the aura of happiness around him imploded, with him, setting things back to normal. In the latter, when the girls found the professor crying in the mirror, Allegro admitted to everything that he was the one making it all happen, thus causing the girls to beat him senseless.
    2. Eric Bauza did a passable job voicing him as he also voiced Buhdeuce in Breadwinners, the two main characters of Atomic Puppet, Master Frown in Unikitty!, Baby Fozzie and Statler in the Muppet Babies reboot and Splinter in Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.
    3. Despite the flaws and being overly perverted and flamboyant, without him, Buttercup wouldn't have learned that there's a time and place for having fun, but enjoyment is not intended to be had all the time.
    4. His motives are kind of understandable as he just wants everyone to be happy and that isn't too villainous, but not everything can be cupcakes and rainbows.
    5. He merged with Largo and turned back into a cosmic bear and it is explained why he is so happy when a completely different guy named Largo appeared. Largo was basically the anti-Allegro. Instead of Allegro using his rainbows to make everyone happy, Largo used his rain clouds to make everybody sad.
      • Bubbles was concerned by the sudden wave of depression that hit Townsville and she went to the clouds to investigate. There, she met Largo, who introduced himself and told the backstory of how he used to be a happy bear named Cosmic Bear. As Cosmic Bear, he was struck by lightning from a cosmic storm, separating him into two entities of completely opposite emotions. Allegro embodied all of his positivity, while Largo embodied all his negativity. Allegro and Largo, simply could not get along, as they were way too different to live together. Bubbles set up a tea party with the two of them, in hopes that it would help them get along. But after she left, everybody just started fighting. Bubbles, finally having enough of everyone arguing, forces Blossom, Buttercup, Largo, and Allegro to make up. After Largo and Allegro hug each other, they form back into Cosmic Bear and thanked the girls for bringing him back together.
