‘Powerpuff Girls’ Returning to Cartoon Network in 2016

Cartoon Network will return to Townsville in 2016 with a rebooted Powerpuff Girls series.

“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,” Rob Sorcher, Cartoon Network’s chief content officer, said in a statement.  “We are calling these girls back into action based upon an overwhelming demand for sugar, spice and Chemical X.”

Created by Craig McCracken, The Powerpuff Girls aired from 1998 to 2004, following the adventures of three super-powered girls named Bubbles, Blossom and Buttercup, who were created by scientist Professor Utonium. The 78-episode ran also inspired a 2003 feature film, a 10th-anniversary special and, earlier this year, a reimagined CG-animated special.

It’s unknown whether McCracken, wasn’t involved in the January special, will participate in the new series.

    I hope this will be the ultra grimdark re-imagining of the Powerpuff Girls that I have been feverishly petitioning Cartoon Network to create!!!

    …Yeah, you can’t make things dark that were meant to be, well, not dark.

    Despite the fact that the original Whoop-Ass Girls short was kinda brutal.

    DC and Marvel are both running huge alternate universe cross-overs. I think it should be an alternate universe crossover with The Powerpuff Girls and Powerpuff Girls Z.

    The Z universe girls would be weirded-out by the fact that their alternate selves were grown in a vat by Prof Utonium, that Mojo Jojo isn’t quite as smart and that HIM without the effeminate lisp is pretty damn scary.

    The X universe girls would find it weird that the Professor has a son, they are all unrelated and live in real houses with real families – and on top of that Buttercup can’t stop her tomboyish skirt-chasing.

    At last, Yuri comes to Cartoon Network (just kidding. I’m sure the audience here would hate it. bet it would go over in Japan though. they already like both versions LOL)

    PPG ALWAYS gets rebooted; how about showing some lovin’ to other classic CN series for a change? I know John R. Dilworth is working on a new Courage short, but no further information has been released.
