The Powerpuff Girls Set To Return To TV In 2016
Crime-fighting cuties set to return to Cartoon Network to protect Townsville once again...
They were the Girl Power superheroes who stuck a rocket up kids' cartoons in the late 1990s - gaining plenty of adult fans along the way too.
And now The Powerpuff Girls are set to return to Cartoon Network with an all-new series in 2016, the channel has announced.
Created by Craig McCracken and first broadcast in 1998, the show followed the adventures of Bubbles, Blossom and Buttercup as they protected Townsville from Mojo Jojo and other enemies.
"The original Powerpuff Girls was a franchise phenomenon for Cartoon Network, paving the way for a new generation of innovative storytellers and enthusiastic fans worldwide," said Cartoon Network exec Rob Sorcher.
"We are calling these girls back into action based upon an overwhelming demand for sugar, spice and Chemical X."
The series won two Emmys and led to a spin-off movie before being revived for a one-off special this year.
And another cartoon icon is also set for a small-screen return - with the BBC announcing that Danger Mouse is being brought out of retirement for a new series.
Animated by FremantleMedia and Boulder Media - the new show will be broadcast on CBBC next year.
Fremantle's Rick Glanker said: "The thrills, spills and comedy of this landmark international animated series are all still here but this rebooted version will be brought up-to-date for today's tech-savvy and content-hungry kids.
"In this new 21st-Century version the laughs are set to be even louder as the world's smallest secret agent faces mightier missions, voracious villains and knee-trembling threats."
The original show ran from 1989 to 1992 and was voiced by Sir David Jason and the late Terry Scott.
