Girls Are Back on Cartoon Network

The Powerpuff Girls. This Emmy-winning series, created by Craig McCracken, recently celebrated its 15-year anniversary on Cartoon Network.

It will come again as a re-imagined CG special where the trio of pint-sized super heroines will be called upon to rescue not just the city of Townsville, but the world, all before bedtime!

“Dance Pantsed” is set to premiere in the U.S. on Monday, Jan. 20 at 7:30 p.m. (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.

Also, Tom Kenny comes 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, Jan. 19 beginning at 12 p.m. (ET/PT).

Fans also can enjoy an all-new mobile game launching Jan. 2014. Players can become their favorite Powerpuff Girl and play through action-packed levels, fight hordes of evil robots and unlock power upgrades to defeat Mojo Jojo.

“Dance Pantsed” is produced by Cartoon Network Studios in association with UK’s Passion Pictures. Dave Smith serves as director and Kevin Dart as art director.
