The Powerpuff Girls Return to Save the World
Good news for fans of Powerpuff Girls! The new series will be returning to cable TV starting April 9.
MANILA, March 21, 2016 – Reimagined and ready for action, The Powerpuff Girls will return to Cartoon Network in an all-new series on Saturday, April 9, just days after its global premiere in the U.S.
On that day, six brand-new episodes of The Powerpuff Girls will be showcased starting at 10am, and 15 all-new episodes of Cartoon Network’s best loved shows – Regular Show, Adventure Time and We Bare Bears – will be shown on the same day from 8am.
In addition, every Turner channel in the Philippines (including Warner TV, Boomerang, Toonami, truTV and TCM) as well as partner channel TV5 will be broadcasting Powerpuff Girls content on the same morning. The series will also be supported via video and games on the Cartoon Network Watch and Play and Cartoon Network Anything apps, and on CartoonNetworkAsia.com.
“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 shows,” said Mark Eyers, Content Head of Cartoon Network in Asia Pacific.
Superhero-sisters Blossom, Bubbles and Buttercup are widely known as The Powerpuff Girls. Together, they protect the beautiful, bustling metropolis of Townsville and its citizens’ sinister evildoers, intent on taking over. Juggling school, homework and a regular parade of villains is no easy task, but the girls are more than up for the challenge. Armed with supercool superpowers and topnotch teamwork, The Powerpuff Girls, with the occasional assistance from Professor Utonium and the Mayor of Townsville, will soon prove to their hometown and the world that it is possible to save the world before bedtime.
One of Cartoon Network’s most enduring original series, the initial run of The Powerpuff Girls, created by Craig McCracken, premiered in 1996 and earned two Emmy® Awards along with five nominations and countless animation honors throughout its 78 episodes. The series also spawned a feature film with Warner Bros. Pictures in 2002.
Don’t miss the return of the trio back-to-back with new episodes of Regular Show, Adventure Time, We Bare Bears, Clarence and many more, non-stop all day from 8am only on the number one kids’ channel Cartoon Network. Once the hysteria calms down, the full series of The Powerpuff Girls will kick in from Monday, May 2 at 5:45pm, as part of Laughternoons every weekday.
