Sara Bellum is a character on The Powerpuff Girls, voiced by Jennifer Martin. She is the assistant to the mayor of Townsville, and her face is seldom shown.


Usually beside the Mayor, Sara Bellum is his deputy and the "brains" of his operations. The Mayor himself believes that she is the real head of Townsville. She has red hair, wears a red dress with red shoes, and her face is seldom shown throughout the series.

She is the Mayor's very competent assistant, a statuesque redhead. Ms. Bellum is a very beautiful, tall, well-endowed woman with a great deal of curly red/ginger hair and a red dress with red pumps. She speaks with a throaty, alluring, and quite unruffled voice. She handles things the Mayor can't, which is practically everything. Her face is never shown onscreen, except for one instance in a form of a dog in "Monkey See, Doggie Do", although "The Powerpuff Girls Rule!" briefly revealed part of it.

Whenever she appears, an object will either block her face or the camera will cut off everything above her neck. Whenever she is the center of attention (as when Blossom's mind was switched to her body or when she fought Sedusa), her hair often covers her face. Other onscreen characters often claim that she is very pretty, with the exception of the abrasive Talking Dog.

In the bleak future of the episode "Speed Demon", she expresses an obsessive attachment to the Mayor's hat out of grief, possibly proving that she is in love with him. She attended elementary school with the Professor and Ms. Keane before the creation of the Powerpuff Girls.


  • Ms. Bellum's name is a pun on "cerebellum", the part of the brain that controls motor control such as attention, language and emotion. It works on many levels, since she is usually the "logical" thinker in most situations and that she is the one who tells the mayor what he should do since he "lacks" said motor skills.
  • Blossom dressed like her in "The Powerpuff Girls' Best Rainy Day Adventure Ever". She wore high heeled red shoes (identical to those which Ms. Bellum wears), stood on a stool (to be as tall as her), and put stuffed animals under her shirt, resembling Ms. Bellum's breasts. Also, Blossom spoke with a seducing voice like Ms. Bellum does.
  • The episodes "Insect Inside" and "Something's a Ms." reveal her first name to be Sara.
  • Ms. Bellum's face was revealed in one episode, although both her eyes and mouth were closed.
