‘The Powerpuff Girls’ to Return with New Series in 2016 | Variety
That special earlier in the must have really lit a fire under the Network. No further info at this time, but i'm sure everyone will be watching for more info as it comes.
There's a few Kidscreen articles that confirm SU was greenlit in hopes of attracting a female audience (while still appealing to boys).Well.. this is certainly unexpected. I'm a little surprised that they're airing the PPG as a new series. I'm guessing it'll be like the Special though.. which is concerning. But it's nice that they're giving an attempt on girl-centric content on CN (or it'll be on Boomerang, considering the changes lately).
Even if they're reruns, 90s nostalgia fans STILL complain.Well I can see why they are reviving some shows, Billy and Mindy MIGHT be revived if Maxwell Atoms is interested in doing that, John Dilworth is really hyped and wants Courage to be revived too. PPG might do well if they do the same animation style. Even if its different, if people dislike any of these revivals, I can blame the 90s kids for their constant yelling for their 90s shows to be revived. Regardless if they are just asking for reruns of their old shows.
It's starting to look like Cartoon Network is beginning to change programming gears and that's exactly what needs to be done. Good to see the revival of The Powerpuff Girls, but still, I'd like to see more in terms of originality and not just revivals. I'd also like to see CN bring Totally Spies back to U.S. airwaves. Let's also remember, Cartoon Network will have new leadership and in line with that, going back to the basics of programming for all audiences, not just boys. There are girls that watch CN and would like to see more programming that caters to them, demographically- well, it's starting to take shape, but it will take time to come into fruition and there are other female-centric animated properties that CN can look into, as well. This is just a beginning to what's to come, in the future.Just finished writing up an article summing up what we know on Toonzone, which admittedly isn't too much yet. No details on creative staff or the animation style seem to be confirmed AFAIK, and with the show targeted for 2016 it may be awhile before we know more. But, we'll see what happens.
New "The Powerpuff Girls" TV Series Announced for Cartoon Network - Toon Zone News
I think it's about time. The enduring popularity of this thing is obvious, and Cartoon Network has really had no answer to My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic these past few years - until right now.
