The Powerpuff Girls Return… with Ringo Starr!?

He's Not One of the Beat-Alls...

He’s Not One of the Beat-Alls…

The The Powerpuff Girls, like Futurama before it, is kinda proving to be the series that wouldn’t die. It aired its last episode in 2004, but then in 2009 it popped back up with a 10th Anniversary Special. That one was different from the series in that it was animated with Flash instead of hand-drawn.

Now this coming monday we’re getting another special! This one is called The Powerpuff Girls: Dance Pantsed. It’s apparently about an evil Dance Dance Revolution type of video game or something? This one is different from both the series and the 10th Anniversary Special in that it is animated with CGI.

Also Ringo Starr voices (and lends his likeness to) a character named Fibonacci Sequins, and he actually recorded an original song, which you can listen to and watch here in this video:

There’s no way to know whether or not the visuals in that video are indicative of the special’s videos as a whole, but it is an intriguing look. I don’t know if it’s a good look for the Powerpuff Girls, though. I’m reserving judgment until I see the special.

Troubling, though, is the fact that apparently Craig McCracken, the creator of Powerpuff Girls, is not involved in the making of this special! It’s being made by one of the guys who directed some of the episodes of the cartoon, but to have the creator of a show not involved in a special is not a good sign.

That said, I still plan on watching it! And I am watching it in the hopes that it will be good. Probably not as good as the 10th Anniversary Special was, but (again) I’ll reserve judgement until I see it.
