TORONTO, March 10, 2016 /CNW/ - They're back... Blossom, Bubbles and Buttercup are saving the day in an all-new, reimagined series of The Powerpuff Girls, only on Corus Entertainment's Cartoon Network. The latest original, animated comedy series from Cartoon Network Studios, The Powerpuff Girls premieres with back-to-back episodes on Monday, April 4 at 6 p.m. Following this premiere are two action-packed weeks of new episodes (Monday-Friday, April 4 through 15 at 6 p.m.), leading into the show's regular time slot, Thursdays at 6 p.m. on April 21.
Superhero sisters Blossom, Bubbles and Buttercup are known to their fellow citizens of Townsville as The Powerpuff Girls. Together, they protect their beautiful, bustling metropolis from sinister evildoers, intent on taking over. Juggling school, homework and a regular parade of villains is no easy task, but The Powerpuff Girls are more than up to the challenge. Armed with supercool superpowers and some topnotch teamwork, The Powerpuff Girls, with occasional assistance from Professor Utonium and the Mayor of Townsville, show their hometown and the world that it is possible to save the world before bedtime.
The Powerpuff Girls is produced by Cartoon Network Studios, with Nick Jennings (Adventure Time, SpongeBob SquarePants) serving as executive producer and Bob Boyle (Wow! Wow! Wubbzy!) as co-executive producer.
As 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.
