Our favorite female crime-fighters are coming back to Cartoon Network in 2016, and we couldn’t be more excited. The Powerpuff Girls made being strong and sassy cool, and we can’t wait to have more sugar, spice, everything nice—and of course, a dash of chemical X—on the air again.

These heroines kicked ass from 1998 to 2005, winning two Emmy awards and several animation awards along the way, and now they are revamping the show, taking on Nick Jennings (Adventure Time) as their executive producer. As long as they’re still preaching the gospel of girl power, we’re happy.

More than anything, we are happy there will be another generation raised on the wisdom of Bubbles, Blossom and Buttercup. Remember when they taught us about Susan B. Anthony and the true meaning of equal rights?

We love that they don’t adhere to antiquated stereotypes; the dad/Inventor character is a loving and supportive single father who isn’t ashamed of his frilly apron.


Binge watch the episodes on Amazon, or you can catch reruns on Boomerang. Catch new episodes on Cartoon Network in 2016!
