Danger Mouse And Powerpuff Girls Returning To TV!

News hit last week that Cartoon Network would be bringing back the super-popular Powerpuff Girls animated series in 2016 for a new run having first premiered all the way back in 1998.

Pete Yoder, vice president of consumer products for North America, Cartoon Network Enterprises stated:

“As the original ambassador of ‘girl power,’ The Powerpuff Girls brand continues to resonate with people of all ages and there is tremendous excitement around introducing Blossom, Bubbles and Buttercup to a new generation. With proven success and great content plans in place, there’s so much potential that we’re looking forward to explore with our licensing partners in the coming weeks.”

I know a huge amount of people that will be very happy about this news!

On top of this news we also found out that one of the cartoon show I grew up on 'Danger Mouse' is also returning to our screens, this time it's in 2015. DM last graced our TV's 23 years ago and was voiced by British legend David Jason. The show will return along with trusty sidekick Penfold for a 52 episode run on CBBC and the programme-makers have stated that DM will be spruced up with 2015 tech including an "I-patch" with state of the art functions instead of his old basic eye patch as well as many other minor changes. No news on the voice cast (David Jason again please!) or anything else at this time but as everything is revealed we'll hopefully be putting it up on here!

This poster below is the first look at what we'll see on the show. Awesome news. :)
