Fighting crime, trying to save the world, here they come just in time...yes, The Powerpuff Girls are back. The hit cartoon featuring sugar, spice, everything nice—and that secret ingredient, chemical X—is officially on the 2016 slate of new toons coming to Cartoon Network. Better again, at its helm as producer will be Nick Jennings, from the incredible Adventure Time. The show ran from 1998-2005 but still remains a classic in the eyes of viewers who grew up with that and critics alike. Cartoon Network released a,statement saying: “We are calling these girls back into action based on an overwhelming demand for sugar, spice and everything nice” Damn right. The series won two Emmy Awards and critical acclaim, and was one of the most enduring shows on the network. Since the last episode aired, there have been several specials from the show. Most recently, Cartoon Network released “Dance Pantsd”, which was a CGI special of the much loved show. It is unclear whether the new series will follow in this animation style, or whether creator, Craig McClaren, will be involved. There was also an anime version of the show PPGZ which never made it to air stateside. The Powerpuff Girls was a cartoon and a kid’s show, yes, but it was also so much more than that; it was about empowerment, tackling issues like gender identity, tackled gender norms, bullying, including everyone and finding your inner strength. Even Christian Bale was a fan... All in all, it was kick ass, and I am absolutely delighted it’s heading back to the small screen. What is for certain, however, is that this is something to get very excited about, Powerpuff fans. So Popwrappers and Powerpuff fans, are you excited to see the show get rebooted, or do you think it should have stayed in the past in all it’s glory—after all, there can be too much of a good thing? Let us know your thoughts.
