After an eleven year hiatus the girls made of sugar, spice and everything nice will be returning to Cartoon Network in April. Powerpuff Girls created by Craig McCracken, ran from 1998 – 2005. I recall being infatuated with the girls, my favorites a split between the blue youngest child Bubbles and the tomboyish Buttercup.
After seven years on air the show ended but reruns played on Boomerang. Finally in January 2014 Cartoon Network aired The Powerpuff Girls: Dance Pantsed, featuring Ringo Starr. Shortly after they revealed the Powerpuff Girls would be returning.

The new voices of our Powerpuffs are Amanda Leighton from The Fosters; Kristen Li Palamides’ of Monsters University, and Natalie Palamides of Burning Bridges. Tom Kenny will return as the voice of the Narrator/Mayor and Jennifer Hale will be returning as Ms. Keane.
