They’re cute, they’re naive and they’re our first and last line of defense against rampaging supervillains, invading Kaiju and the occasional cosmic catastrophe brushing past the planet. Since their 1998 debut, Blossom, Buttercup and Bubbles have been Cartoon Network‘s most lasting franchises, earning them 2.5 billion dollaridoos in merchandise alone.Which is why the channel decided to plan a a bombastic comeback…
Don’t call it a reboot. At least you most likely won’t after watching this new The Powerpuff Girlsclip. There doesn’t seem to be any typical rebooting type stuff going on actually. Most reboots want to change everything and we can’t really see much difference from the original series so far. It is just a clip though, so maybe there’s plenty of other bonfire changes that will set the Internet ablaze once the series airs. Check it out after the jump. (more…)
If you are reading this, you are likely a fan of Cartoon Network and the gems that they have offered over the years. Today, the network’s programming agenda was released and while there are some pretty cool things coming up, one of the big pieces of new information that was dropped was the fact that Nick Jennings (Adventure Time, SpongeBob SquarePants, Rocko’s Modern Life) will be presiding over The Powerpuff Girls reboot.

Cartoon Network is bringing back Blossom, Bubbles, and Buttercup in a new special titled Dance Pantsed, but creator Craig McCracken isn’t involved, he’s busy over on the Disney Channel with his new hit Wonder Over Yonder. Can the Cartoon Network pull it off without the Powerpuff Girls’ creator on board? (more…)

“What is this I don’t even” is all I can think of as I watched this clip. In this clip, we got both Mark Wahlberg and Christian Bale probably finishing up promoting The Fighter and the interviewer asks them to sing a song.
Bale out of no where, just starts singing the Powerpuff Girls theme and explains that since thats mostly what his daughter watches, the song is stuck in his head which is understandable since the theme is catchy (and I was humming it yesterday since it was on Cartoon Network). Of course, Wahlberg, out of no where as well, started his rendition of “The Touch.” Yes, the Stan Bush one.
Sooo yeah, I guess I’m freakin’ out on how to react to this because of the sheer mix of randomness, weirdness, and awesomeness, in which it makes my mind not know what to do. What do y’all think of this clip? Is your mind blown or do you think this is just lame?
