Favorite cartoon female trio The Powerpuff Girls are making a return to television for a brand new special airing later this year!

Cartoon Network made the announcement while presenting to investors its line-up of television programming. Writes the beloved cartoon channel, “the trio of pint-sized super heroines will be called upon to rescue not just the city of Townsville, but the USA and the world!”

Very interestingly, former Beatle Ringo Starr will appear in the episode and perform an original song titled “I Wish I Was A Powerpuff Girl.” He’ll also play “Townsville’s most famous flamboyant mathematician Fibonacci Sequins.”

Notably, The Powerpuff Girls special features the original voice cast reprising their iconic roles and will premiere later this year.

Bleeding Cool has this photo which allegedly depicts the new look of the Girls, but it has not been confirmed:

The Powerpuff Girls ran for six seasons (from 1998 – 2005) and was created by Craig McCracken.

Elsewhere, Cartoon Network announced the following shows arriving in 2013: Adventure Time, Regular Show, Annoying Orange, MAD, The Amazing World of Gumball, The Looney Tunes Show, Ben 10 Omniverse, Dreamworks Dragons: Riders of Berk, Scooby-Doo! Mystery Inc., Johnny Test, Pokémon Black & White: Adventures in Unova, Beyblade Metal Fury, Almost Naked Animals, and Scaredy Squirrel.

    I do not like their new look. Too modernized.
    I love the Beatles so cool news about Ringo, although it is a little strange.

        That really sucks. How am I supposed to get my DC Nation fix on Saturday mornings?! There is no other way to pacify me then to bring back Teen Titans. I don’t really care for a brand new one (unless it’s more comic-book oriented). All I need is the old re-runs. But i am really made about Young Justice.

          Same here, but according to the article I linked, one of the shows that is filling in is going to be Teen Titans Go! Though I have a feeling they’re going to take the shorts they’ve been putting of them, maaayyybe making them longer, and put them together like they do with Adventure Time.

          It takes away the sting a little, but I would rather 2 things: If they are going to add Teen Titans, return to the previous style of the show (full half hour, and same or similar drawing style), and that they not cancel YJ all together ><

    I love how everything from the 90s is coming back this year. Backstreet Boys, Aaron Carter, Boy Meets World(in a way and I know, not fully this year), NKOTB, and so many other things that I can’t think of atm
