New Info About THE POWERPUFF GIRLS Reboot
The original Powerpuff Girls series was one of the few cartoon series that I enjoyed watching with my little girls. Now the adorable, bug-eyed, ass-kickers will be back for more action in a rebooted series being developed by Cartoon Network.
The new info is that Nick Jennings, the producer of Adventure Time, is executive producing the series, so there's a good chance it will be a decent, enjoyable reboot. The original series premiered back in 1998, and had 78 episodes. There was also a CG special that aired last year.
There’s no word on if the new series will change the look of Blossom, Bubbles, and Buttercup, but I sure hope not. That was one of the main things that made them so damn adorable. My kids will definitely be excited to hear that the Powerpuff Girls are making a comeback.
Below you’ll find the press release with all of the information on Cartoon Network's original programming:
