The Powerpuff Girls Return to Television January 20th

Things have been pretty quiet in Townsville since 2005 when The Powerpuff Girls went off the air, or at least I assume so. After all, Blossom, Buttercup, and Bubbles would never leave the city in danger. But you might not want to plan a day trip out there on January 20th. My advice? Just sit at home and watch the coverage on TV. Mojo Jojo is up to his old tricks.

The long awaited Powerpuff Girls special finally has an official airdate and musical guest star, courtesy Cartoon Network. On January 20th at 7:30 pm, the girls, the Professor, the Mayor, and Ms. Bellum will return to combat the evil Mojo Jojo. Don’t tell me you don’t know who those folks are, the show is only fifteen years old oh god the Powerpuff Girls is almost old enough to drive. I’m getting verklempt. Talk amongst yourselves about the synopsis:

In Dance Pantsed, why is Mojo Jojo kidnapping a mathematician, an opera singer and a badger? To steal Chemical X, of course, and to finally take over Townsville. But when the Powerpuff Girls thwart his plan, he invents an evil video game called “Dance Pants R-EVILution” to control their minds and bodies to fulfill his evil plot! The Professor must visit his dark dancing past to save his girls so they can save all of Townsville!

But wait, there’s still the special guest to cover. In the role of Townsville’s “most flamboyant mathematician,” Fibonacci Sequins, Ringo Starr himself will be singing I Wish I Was a Powerpuff Girl.

Don’t we all, Ringo. Don’t we all. Here’s the full version of the cropped graphic from the top of the post. Click to embiggen!

  • Mark Brown

    But Mojo already took over Townsville (and the world) in the 2008 special.

  • Run Amok

    *Tiny screams*

  • Rob Payne

    If it’s wrong to be a 31-year-old dude excited about the continuing adventures of adolescent girl superheroes, I don’t want to be right.

  • Aelamasca Aluveaux

    I was kinda hoping for Power Puff GirlsZ =_=

  • Anonymous

    Help, we need somebody,
    Help, not just anybody,
    We need the PowerPuff Girls.

  • angelbunnyy

    Aww but I was hoping for HIM and Fuzzy Lumpkins. I never really liked Mojo Jojo

  • Important Film Maker

    Are they redesigned? They look a little different in the poster.

  • ScreamLoudly

    I’ve missed them so!!! Can’t believe its been 15yrs!!! They were girl power to the max!!! Will definitely be looking out for this!!!

  • ScreamLoudly

    Not wrong at all!!!:)

  • Wendy Heather Wood

    Yeah, their hair and eyes are really different here. I can’t say I’m a fan of the eyes at all.

  • Angie Boo

    This is going to be my favorite birthday present next year!! :D

  • Angie Boo

    Could just be for the poster. They might look the same in the actual show

  • Wendy Heather Wood

    Hopefully. I’ll probably end up watching it multiple times either way, but I hope they are sticking with the original designs.

  • Tyler Symes


  • Ryan Colson

    Far as I know, this is a rebooted PPG series.

  • Ryan Colson

    This is the reboot that was announced awhile back, whereSarah Bellum (mayor assistant) has a head now and i think a new narrator is in it if i recall right…

  • Ryan Colson

    This is a new canon so it works..

  • Harrison Grey

    I must question the new art style, at least until I get a look at it in action, but I’m not sure I’ve heard of anything more genuinely Powerpuff Girls than “Fibonacci Sequins, flamboyant mathematician”.

  • Anonymous

    Someone made a post on Tumblr how this announcement was made less than 24 hours after the Dini interview were he said that shows like ‘Young Justice’ had to be cancelled because ‘Too many girls were watching it instead of boys.’
    CN effectively pulled a ‘Malibu Stacy with a new Hat’ on us in order to stop talking about the Dini interview.

  • Rob Payne

    As much as I don’t like Kevin Smith jabberjawing, he’s got a point that a Raven umbrella is an obvious merchandising opportunity if “girls don’t buy toys” is the only thing keeping good shows off the air.

  • Rob Payne

    Liked most especially for screen name/comment synchronicity.

  • Angela Korra’ti (Highland)

    Why THANK YOU! My birthday is coming three days early! ;D (I’ll be over here singing the theme song now.)

  • Jose Galapagos

    Fighting crime,
    Trying to save the world,
    Here they come just in time,
    The Powerpuff Girls.

    I was just about to mention that. You beat me to it! But yeah, that post is definitely recommended reading for people curious about the seeming sexism ‘behind the curtain’

    Linking so people can read:

  • Sebastien

    I was thinking the same thing since my birthday is the 23rd.

  • Sebastien

    he is based on the Blue Meanie

  • Franke Sisto

    I’m a 24-year old Adventure Time fan and I watched the Powerpuff Girls when I was younger.

    I’m excited about this too my man – no shame!

  • Joseph A. Coleman

    Mojo Jojo is the Dr. Doom of the Powerpuff Girls. He is definitely a must :D

  • Angela Korra’ti (Highland)

    Woo! January 23rd birthdays represent! /

  • Rob Payne

    Of course. Lots of girls do! I’m just saying, if that’s the logic they’re using, there’s plenty of ammunition why that doesn’t actually make much sense.

  • Anonymous

    So excited for this! Powerpuff!

  • SuperTwee

    Young Justice was cancelled by DC, not Cartoon Network. Or whoever owns PPG.

  • Flutters


  • Flutters

    Him has to be there. He’s my favorite villain.

  • Ryan Colson

    I dunno but Jan 2012 they mentioned rebooting it and several sources present it as that as well…
