Watch the new ‘Powerpuff Girls’ pop-punk intro
“Sugar. Spice. And everything nice. These were the ingredients chosen to create the perfect little girl. But Professor Utonium accidentally added an extra ingredient to the concoction: Chemical X. Thus the Powerpuff Girls were born!”
You know the words. You know that voice. But everything else about the intro to “The Powerpuff Girls” is new, including the pop-punk girl-power anthem that follows.
Speaking of familiar, as you can also tell from the animation, the design of the new “Powerpuff Girls” is sticking closely to the look of the original series that ran from 1998-2005. Although it does look like the Powerpuff Girls have upgraded their emergency phone from a landline to a cellphone.
“The Powerpuff Girls” will feature the voice talents of Amanda Leighton as team leader Blossom, Kristen Li as the bright and friendly Bubbles, and Natalie Palamides as the tough-as-nails Buttercup. The series is set to premiere on Cartoon Network in April.
