Fighting crime, trying to save the world – here they come just in time, the Powerpuff Girls.
Well maybe not “just in time” – as their theme song suggests – considering it’s been 11 years since the googly-eyed youngsters battled bad guys on our TV screens.
But the wait is finally over. For the first time since 2005, Cartoon Network’s girl-power toon – with 40 new episodes – will be back on its home network at 6 p.m. on Mondays.
The Powerpuff Girls will return to Cartoon Network April 4, in their revamped series.
The “Powerpuff Girls” first aired in 1998, which means the generation of kids that originally watched the high-flying trio is now old enough to vote – and many of them would likely rather support one of their favorite kindergarten-aged superheroes for office instead of any of the current presidential hopefuls.
Sadly, Blossom, Bubbles nor Buttercup will be appearing on the ballot for the upcoming New York primary on Tuesday, April 19, but maybe seeing the candidates power-puffed up will help ease the voting process.
1.Hillary Clinton: By #ImWithHer, we mean the Powerpuff Hillary.
“Girl power!” -Powerpuff Hillary
2.Ted Cruz: Superpowers include cooking bacon with laser vision as well as with the barrel of a gun.
Let’s be real, it’d be way easier to “Cruz” to victory as a flying, crime-fighting, Powerpuff Ted Cruz.
3.Bernie Sanders: Famous Powerpuff villains like Mojo-Jojo and Him wouldn’t be able to handle this Bern.
Powerpuff Bernie wants to start a political revolution – and eat more of that mint-chocolate chip ice cream, “Bernie’s Yearnings.”
4.John Kasich: Kasich may literally need to hop into a vat of “Chemical X” and get some super powers if he wants to continue his campaign against fellow GOPers.
Powerpuff John learned from heroes, Blossom, Bubbles and Buttercup, to never give up – even when you’re hugely trailing in the polls.
5.Donald Trump: Unlike the Powerpuff Girls – made of sugar spice and everything nice – Trump is made of money, spray tan, and everything Republican.
Powerpuff Donald has no fingers, but if he did they’d be the same size as everyone else’s.
