POWERPUFF GIRLS Reboot To Hit Cartoon Network!

POWERPUFF GIRLS Reboot To Hit Cartoon Network!

Sugar, spice, and everything nice. The famous Powerpuff Girls are set to return to Cartoon Network in an all-new animated series in 2016.


In some totally left field news sure to please nostalgic nineties kids and little girls everywhere, Cartoon Network announced today that their iconic crime fighting trio, the Powerpuff Girls, will be making their triumphant return to television in 2016.

“The original Powerpuff Girls was a franchise phenomenon for Cartoon Network, paving the way for a new generation of innovative storytellers and enthusiastic fans worldwide,” said Cartoon Network chief content officer Rob Sorcher, “We are calling these girls back into action based upon an overwhelming demand for sugar, spice and Chemical X.”

Craig McCracken's 'The Powerpuff Girls' is one of Cartoon Network's most successful brands to date, with retail profits totaling over $2.5 billion. Endowed with the powers of sugar, spice, everything nice, and Chemical X (originally 'a can of whoop-ass'), the girls fought their way through seventy-eight television episodes, a feature film, an anime spin-off, and a one-off special earlier this year featuring former Beatle Ringo Starr.

Though its appearance may be shocking to some, this new incarnation of The Powerpuff Girls promises to offer something fresh in a largely male dominated marketplace of superheroes.

So what do you think, gang. Will you be returning to the city of Townsville in 2016? Sound off in the comments below.
