The first trailer showing off the new look of The Powerpuff Girls has been released. Blossom, Bubbles and Buttercup will be part of a brand-new, redesigned and re-imagined CG special called "Dance Pantsed."
"Dance Pantsed is set to premiere in the U.S. on Monday, January 20 at 7:30 PM ET/PT on Cartoon Network and will roll-out internationally beginning in February. The special features the original voice cast reprising their roles: Catherine Cavadini as Blossom, Tara Strong as Bubbles, E.G. Daily as Buttercup, Roger L. Jackson as Mojo Jojo, Tom Kane as The Professor and Tom Kenny as The Mayor with a special guest appearance by Beatles legend Ringo Starr as Fibonacci Sequins, Townsville's most famous flamboyant mathematician. In addition, Ringo Starr performs an original music video and song "I Wish I Was A Powerpuff Girl."
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!
Leading-up to the premiere of "Dance Pantsed," Cartoon Network is showcasing ten classic episodes of The Powerpuff Girls for a five-hour marathon on Sunday, January 19 beginning at 12 PM ET/PT. Check out the first footage from the special below.
