Fans of the Powerpuff Girls take note: There is an actual City of Townsville in Australia.

As Powerpuff Fan Girls and Boys know, The City of Townsville is a fictional American city and the main setting of the Powerpuff Girls. It’s supposedly near Pasadena, CA. Townsville is shown as a awesome place; filled with clean air, happy people, and an evil monkey intent on destroying EVERYTHING!

The City of Townsville is also a real Australian city. It is definitely located on the northeastern coast of Queensland, Australia and is considered by some to be the “unofficial capital” of Queensland. Townsville is home to a significant number of governmental, community, and major business administration offices and has never been attacked by an evil monkey.
