Cartoon Network have just announced a raft of new shows – more on which in a moment. Amongst them is one that I think merits specific mention: a redesigned, reworked, Craig McCracken-less Powerpuff Girls.
We believe these are the new designs.
The new, computer generated special has been directed by Dave Smith, designed by Kevin Dart and features the same lead voice performers as the original show.
Ringo Starr has a guest starring part too as… er… um… a mathematician called Fibonnaci Sequins. Right. He does get a song, though, called I Wish I Was A Powerpuff Girl. Sounds like he may be the villain. Or maybe a hero who will get his wish for a bit – wouldn't be the first time he was the tacked-on fourth wheel, would it?
Incidentally, the Girls' creator Craig McCracken is working on his own new show, Wander Over Yonder, for Disney. It looks fab.
