Cartoon Network teased the first footage this morning from its Powerpuff Girls reboot with a clip from the episode “I Am Not A Princess,” featuring a villain named Manboy, who has vowed to turn the city of Townsville into the city of Mansville.
The series is now confirmed to launch this spring:
The network announced earlier this week that the series will have its world premiere next month at SXSW in Austin, Texas. The series’ executive and co-executive producers are Nick Jennings (Adventure Time) and Bob Boyle (Wow! Wow! Wubbzy!), respectively.
The first Powerpuff short, created by Craig McCracken, aired on Cartoon Network 21 years ago this month.
