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.
