By now you’ve probably heard that The Powerpuff Girls is getting a reboot on Cartoon Network. The new series will premiere on April 4 at 6:00pm. CN has even released teaser footage to get fans pumped for the big day.
While there are some clear artistic design differences from the old show, the premise remains the same.
As an addition to all of the episode clips CN has released on YouTube, they also rolled out a great new interactive feature for fans to engage in: Powerpuffing Yourself.
Fans can visit the website PowerpuffYourself.com and create an avatar in the classic Powerpuff Girl animation style. While fans of an older generation are loving this, it also gives new viewers a way to get involved and interested in the reboot.
