The PowderPuff Girls will be returning to the Cartoon Network giving girls a reason to tune in and watch cartoons again.

Those adorable, pint-sized crime fighters who made their home on the Cartoon Network for six seasons, are returning from an eight-year hiatus with an animated special that will feature Ringo Starr. And CN also announced that, for the first time ever, it’s giving a woman a show of her own: Rebecca Sugar will be running Steven Universe, about the junior member of a crime-fighting team. 

Blossom, Buttercup and Bubbles will star in a new special premiering later in 2013 on Cartoon Network. However, they may look a little different. The pint-sized superheroes are getting re-imagined in CG. Look for the girls to expand their saving duties from Townsville to the US as a whole.  Ringo Starr created an original song, “I Wish I Was A Powerpuff Girl,” for the new special. The original voice cast will return to their roles for the “Powerpuff Girls” special. Dave Smith will direct the special with Kevin Dart serving as art director.  “Powerpuff Girls” originally aired on Cartoon Network from 1998-2005.

The Powerpuffs—little girls named Blossom, Bubbles, and Buttercup—never had to deal with the clinging costumes of grown-up superheroines or the conventional superhero story beats, which tend to be awfully grim. Instead, the show focused on what it means to be both young and to have big responsibilities, what it’s like to build your relationship with your sisters, and made the argument that there’s no contradiction between sugar, spice, everything nice and power.  What do you think about this?  Are you excited for the return?
