Behold, Cartoon Network’s first footage from the Powerpuff Girls reboot. Buttercup sounds different. Rest assured she still has zero time for your BS.
In this scene from the first episode (“I Am Not a Princess”), Buttercup puts the smack down on Manboy, a hirsute villain “born of brawn and musk,” who wants to turn Townsville into a more macho, apparently less hippie “Mansville.”
The original Powerpuff Girls ran on Cartoon Network from 1998 to 2005. The rebooted series will feature none of the same actors playing Buttercup, Blossom, and Bubbles, sadly, though Tom Kenny is reportedly back for the roles of the mayor and narrator.
The new show will make its world premiere at South by Southwest in Austin, Texas on March 14, and Cartoon Network will start airing episodes later this year. Watch the full scene below:
