Cartoon Network announced this week that the beloved animated series The Powerpuff Girls will come back to TV in 2016 – nearly 20 years after they first premiered!
The show will be a reboot, complete with licensing and merchandising.
According to Variety:
“As the original ambassador of girl power, The Powerpuff Girls brand continues to resonate with people of all ages and there is tremendous excitement around introducing Blossom, Bubbles and Buttercup to a new generation,” said Pete Yoder, vice president of consumer products for North America, Cartoon Network Enterprises. “With proven success and great content plans in place, there’s so much potential that we’re looking forward to explore with our licensing partners in the coming weeks.”
Back in January, we reported that Cartoon Network would air the original movie The Powerpuff Girls: Dance Pantsed. It featured the original voice cast…and Ringo Starr.
