The Powerpuff Girls are making a comeback, and that's something to sing about. Ringo Starr, who guest stars on the Cartoon Network show's upcoming return episode, also performs a special song in honor of Blossom, Bubbles and Buttercup. TV Guide Magazine has your exclusive first look at "I Wish I Was a Powerpuff Girl" (below).
After almost a decade off the air, a new episode of The Powerpuff Girls will air on Monday, Jan. 20 (7:30/6:30c), featuring a new CGI-look for the trio of superheroes created from "sugar, spice and everything nice, plus a dash of mysterious Chemical X." In "Dance Pantsed," Starr plays Fibonacci Sequins, a flamboyant mathematician who is kidnapped by the PPG's nemesis, Mojo Jojo.
The lighthearted superhero toon, created by Craig McCracken, ran from 1998 to 2005 and was one of Cartoon Network's first breakout hits. A marathon of 10 classic episodes will air on Sunday, Jan. 19, starting at 12 noon/11 a.m. c. The show is also in regular rotation on Cartoon's sister channel, Boomerang.
