Mark Eyers, Content Head for Cartoon Network in Asia Pacific, said: “The Powerpuff Girls will be simply everywhere! Whatever channel you turn to on April 9, and whatever screen you’re using, there will be Blossom, Buttercup and Bubbles saving the day before bedtime! We’ve waited a long time to see these super-cute and super-fierce girls return to action, and the all-new series marks the homecoming for one of Cartoon Network’s best loved franchises.”
The Powerpuff Girls stars sisters Blossom, Bubbles and Buttercup. Together, they protect the beautiful, bustling metropolis from sinister evildoers, intent on taking over. Armed with supercool superpowers and topnotch teamwork, The Powerpuff Girls, with some help from Professor Utonium and the Mayor of Townsville, continue to prove that it is possible to save the world before bedtime.
Created by Craig McCracken in 1998, The Powerpuff Girls has become one of Cartoon Network’s most enduring original series, earning two Emmy® Awards, five nominations and countless animation honors throughout its 78-episode run.
In the digital space, the series will be supported by video and games on the Cartoon Network Watch and Play and Cartoon Network Anything app, and on the Cartoon Network website (www.cartoonetnworkasia.com).
