The award winning cartoon series, 'The Powerpuff Girls
' making it's way back to your TV screens and hearts.
The Cartoon Network
announced on Monday, that the new TV series is slated to launch 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 Rob Sorcher, Cartoon Network’s chief content officer. “We are calling these girls back into action based upon an overwhelming demand for sugar, spice and Chemical X.”
The Powerpuff Girls revolves around the adventures of Blossom, Bubbles, and Buttercup. Each of the girls has a color: Blossom is pink, Bubbles is blue, and Buttercup is green. Episodes often contain more or less hidden references to older pop culture (especially noticeable in the episode "Meet the Beat Alls," having been an homage to the Beatles). The cartoon always tries to keep different ideas within each episode with some small tributes and parodies thrown in. Peter Marks of The New York Times noted the show's use of adult humor and pop culture references, declaring it "the sort of playful satire that can appeal as much to a viewer of 37 as 7.
The Powerpuff Girls
is one of the highest grossing Cartoon Network shows of all time. The series grew to a wild #2.5 billion in retail sales since the show debuted in 1998.
The show also earned two Emmys, a feature film, a 10th anniversary special, and a CG special.
