The Powerpuff Girls ran from 1996 to 2005 as a lovely children’s show about three girls borne via a science experiment with the dangerous Chemical X. The girls Blossom, Bubbles, and Buttercup all have superpowers a few being superhuman strength, speed, durability, and stamina thanks to the powerful Chemical X. The girls use their powers to protect their city from all types of evil. The show was originally created by Craig McCracken and won two Emmy awards over its 78-episode (and one movie) run. The show is coming back to Cartoon Network on April 4th 2016. Tom Kenny, who voiced the Narrator/Mayor in the original series, will reprise his role for the reboot although there will be new voices for the Powerpuff Girl trio. New voices of the Powerpuff Girls will be Amanda Leighton as Blossom, Kristen Li as Bubbles, and Natalie Palamides as Buttercup. The designs of the powerpuff girls are relatively the same, with only thinner outlines. Along with the new designs and voice actors we also have a new exciting intro to Powerpuff Girls. As someone who grew up watching the show I’m glad to see it return to Cartoon Network this year.
