Officer Michael "Mike" Brikowski is the main antagonist of The Powerpuff Girls episode "Cop Out".
He is a fat, arrogant and completely lazy ex-cop who makes absolutely no effort to fight crime or help the people of Townsville. When he is fired for his laziness, he blames the Powerpuff Girls for his firing and vows revenge on them.
He was voiced by Jeff Bennett.
Mike Brikowski is the worst officer in the Townsville Police Department, as he never fights crime or helps the citizens of Townsville. Instead, he lets his fellow police officers do all of the hard work, while he just lazes around eating donuts, sleeps on the job and always stops at each donut shop.
One day, Brikowski falls asleep during a bank robbery, forcing his partner Miguel Perez to call for backup. The rest of the cops arrive at the scene. However, his boss, the Chief notices Brikowski sleeping and yells at him to wake up, but to no avail. Soon, the Powerpuff Girls show up and stop the robber and all the cops drive away. Brikowski wakes up to hear Perez tell him how the girls saved the day, but Brikowski says that the girls are taking all the credit from the police. As Brikowski then requests Perez to stop for his first donut of the day, he states that he is up for a promotion any day now.
Once at the TPD, Brikowski is called to the Chief's office. Brikowski believes he is finally going to get his promotion, but instead, he is fired for making aboslutely no work effort and sleeping on the job. Brikowski initially thinks that the Chief is joking, but the Chief yells at him that he is dead serious and calls him out on his incompetence. The Chief then forces Brikowski to hand over his badge, sunglasses, and donut (but allows him to keep his gun as a souvenir). Brikowski thinks the Chief fired him because he has to make cutbacks and blames the Powerpuff Girls, since they're the ones saving the day and "making the police look bad". Brikowski punches a framed photo of the Chief with the girls before storming out.
That night, Brikowski watches television in his apartment when he sees the girls on the news and him being lazy and sleeping on the job. He flies into a rage and throws the TV out the window, planning on getting rid of the girls once and for all.
The next day, Brikowski tricks the Mayor into calling the Powerpuff Girls to lure them into his trap (under a false claim that crooks plan to steal confiscated weapons from the police warehouse). The girls arrive and he tells them where the "crooks" are. As the girls enter the warehouse, Brikowski he warns them to be careful with an evil smirk forming on his face. Unknown to Brikowski, however, his former partner Perez had followed him and saw the whole ordeal and he calls the Chief, telling him that Brikowski is up to no good.
Brikowksi uses a gas gun to put the Girls to sleep and threatens to drop them into a vat of acid, crossing the Moral Event Horizon. He blames the girls for making the police look bad. The girls say that's not true, they need the Police as they are an important part of the city, but Brikowski refuses to listen and begins to lower the girls into the vat of acid. Brikowski is then arrested by the other police, including the Chief and Perez. Perez tries to stop the crane, but he is too late and the Girls are doused in the acid. Fortunately, the girls survive due to their powers (though the acid still leaves them slightly bruised).
As he is being taken to jail, Brikowski claims he's a good cop gone bad, though Blossom points out that he's a bad cop gone worse, much to the narrator's amusement, who tells him he won't get any donuts while serving time in prison.
- It is hinted that Brikowski also shoplifts since almost all the things in his apartment have their tags on them.
