The Girls Are Back In Townsville!

"The Powerpuff Girls" Save the World Before Bedtime Again In All-New Special

Beatles Legend Ringo Starr Joins Original Voice Cast Catherine Cavadini, Tara Strong, E.G. Daily, Roger L. Jackson, Tom Kane and Tom Kenny in "Dance Pantsed"

Global Launch Begins with U.S. Premiere on January 20 at 7:30 p.m. (ET/PT) on Cartoon Network

"Sugar, Spice and Everything Nice... plus a dash of mysterious Chemical X" were the essential ingredients that created Blossom, Bubbles and Buttercup - also known as The Powerpuff Girls. This groundbreaking and Emmy(R)-winning series, created by Craig McCracken, recently celebrated its 15-year anniversary on Cartoon Network and will soar again as a brand-new, redesigned and re-imagined CG special where the trio of pint-sized super heroines will be called upon to rescue not just the city of Townsville, but the world, all before bedtime! "Dance Pantsed" is set to premiere in the U.S. on Monday, January 20 at 7:30 p.m. (ET/PT) on Cartoon Network and will roll-out internationally beginning in February. The special features the original voice cast reprising their roles: Catherine Cavadini as Blossom, Tara Strong as Bubbles, E.G. Daily as Buttercup, Roger L. Jackson as Mojo Jojo, Tom Kane as The Professor and Tom Kenny as The Mayor with a special guest appearance by Beatles legend Ringo Starr as Fibonacci Sequins, Townsville's most famous flamboyant mathematician. In addition, Ringo Starr performs an original music video and song "I Wish I Was A Powerpuff Girl."

In "Dance Pantsed," why is Mojo Jojo kidnapping a mathematician, an opera singer and a badger? To steal Chemical X, of course, and to finally take over Townsville. But when the Powerpuff Girls thwart his plan, he invents an evil video game called "Dance Pants R-EVILution" to control their minds and bodies to fulfill his evil plot! The Professor must visit his dark dancing past to save his girls so they can save all of Townsville!

Leading-up to the premiere of "Dance Pantsed," Cartoon Network is showcasing ten classic episodes of The Powerpuff Girls for a five-hour marathon on Sunday, January 19 beginning at 12 p.m. (ET/PT). Can't get enough of The Powerpuff Girls? Fans will also enjoy an all-new mobile game launching January 2014. Players can become their favorite Powerpuff Girl and play through action-packed levels, fight hordes of evil robots and unlock power upgrades to defeat Mojo Jojo.

"Dance Pantsed" is produced by Cartoon Network Studios in association with UK's Passion Pictures. Dave Smith serves as director and Kevin Dart as art director.
