Sugar, spice, everything nice, and the enigmatic Chemical X – these are the ingredients needed to make the perfect little girl…or so Professor Utonium led us to believe. 20 years after the launch of Cartoon Network’s most popular original series, there’s a new Powerpuff Girl in town!
Premiering over one weekend, the 5-part special will transform all that we know about the origin story of The Powerpuff Girls. Seen only in a form of a silhouette, her identity remains a secret until Cartoon Network’s global reveal. However, we do know that she’ll be voiced by Toya Delazy, a 27-year-old singer, rapper, songwriter and producer from South Africa.
On Monday, 18 September 2017, at 5PM (Singapore Time), Cartoon Network Asia will reveal the new Powerpuff Girl live on its Facebook page (Facebook.com/Asia.CartoonNetwork), in an interactive experience that will give fans the opportunity to learn more about what makes her awesome.
The first three episodes of the 5-part special will premiere on Saturday, 23 September and the final two episodes on Sunday, 24 September during that time slot.
Created by Craig McCracken in 1998, The Powerpuff Girls follows the three sisters who have dedicated their lives to fighting crime and forces of evil that threaten the city of Townsville. To date, the show has earned two Emmy Awards, five nominations and countless animation honors including the Kids’ Choice Awards – Favourite Cartoon category, the Annie Awards – Character Design in an Animated Television Production, and the Primetime Emmys – Outstanding Animated Program.
Playing off the idea that anyone can be the fourth Powerpuff Girl, Cartoon Network is encouraging fans to visit the www.powerpuffyourself.com from Friday, 8 September to Sunday, 17 September fans to create their very own Powerpuff Girls avatar. Those who upload their avatar on Cartoon Network Facebook page, will stand a chance to win personalized Cartoon Network goodies every day.
I grew up watching Powerpuff girls as a kid and I have watched a few episodes of the new series, hopefully this new Powerpuff Girl will bring a fresh spin on the show’s dynamic and for those of you who have watched the original series we all know we already got our fourth Powerpuff girl, Bunny, in the episode ‘Twisted Sister’. So whoever this new Powerpuff Girl is, she will always be the fifth member and not the fourth. R.I.P Bunny
