Stanley and Sandra Practice (or simply known as Mr. & Mrs. Practices) are one-time characters from the Cartoon Network show, The Powerpuff Girls (the 1998 version), appearing as antagonists in the infamous episode "Girls Gone Mild".

Why They Intentionally Should Be Sued

  1. For obvious starters, they are extremely cruel to the Powerpuff Girls, as they ban them from using their powers as they thought it might be impressionable to younger children. Even worse, they threaten that they'll sue Professor Utonium.
    • Because of this, the girls go through many cruel and boring moments in the episode they were in that serve as somewhat filler.
  2. They're very unoriginal in terms of overall personality, being stereotypical "Powers are bad because of reasons"-type tropes.
  3. They never show that much evidence of the normal kids in Townsville destructively pretending to act like the Powerpuff Girls aside from showing Professor Utonium their petition to stop the girls' superpowers with all the parents signing it.
  4. Thanks to their invalid and unreasonable ban, saving the day from crime became more tedious and difficult with the police getting overwhelmed with the number of calls they received, and the crime rate became higher than usual to the point where it was also happening in cities outside of Townsville.
  5. Near the end of the episode, while Stanley and Sandra Practice do realize the importance of superheroes and tore up the contract to let the Girls use their powers again, they did not apologize to them or the Professor for their actions of even banning the latter from even using their powers previously, or the police for making their career more stressful.
  6. While Stanley and Sandra Practice do get a bit of comeuppance (as they nearly get eaten by the Dooks of Doom), it's too light to be considered karma, given that the Powerpuff Girls rescue them.
    • Why would the Powerpuff Girls even consider rescuing them after what they put them through?

Redeeming Qualities

  1. Although they weren't valid for not letting the girls use their powers, they at least teach an important moral about not copying or impersonating someone.
  2. As mentioned in WIS#4, they do somewhat get their comeuppance when they nearly get eaten by the Dooks of Doom and do let the girls use their powers at the end, and to quote Sandra, "Forget the contract!"
  3. They were likely supposed to be hated due to their cruel and unjustified treatment towards the Girls. After all, like the episode they appeared in, their purpose is to mock real-life moral guardians for their stupidity, despite them being poorly-written.
