Cartoon Network To Unveil Fourth Powerpuff Girl

A fourth Powerpuff Girl will be added making the famous super hero trio a quartet.  The name of the new girl hasn’t been revealed, but what we do know is she’ll be unveiled on September 17 during the premiere episode of the five part movie event, The Powerpuff Girls: Power of Four.

Some have speculated the newest member may not be new at all, but the original fourth Powerpuff girl Bunny.  Bustle tells us, in 2000, The Powerpuff Girls introduced a fourth sister named Bunny, who lasted for just one episode. In the episode, “Twisted Sister” the girls decide to create a new sister to help them with their hero duties. The formula they use to create Bunny isn’t exact — they use a mix of artificial sweetener, twigs, and their personal ideas of what nice means with an added dash of Chemical X — but her imperfections make her all the more endearing.

The Powerpuff Girls were created as a short in 1992 by Craig McCraken.  Before making its debut on Cartoon Network in 1998, it was featured in the animation showcase What A Cartoon! in 1995 and 1996.

The last episode aired on March 25, 2005 with a total of 78 episodes.  The series has been nominated for 6 Emmy Awards, 9 Annie Awards, and a Kid’s Choice Award.

On June 16, 2014 Cartoon Network announced a reboot which premiered April 4, 2016.
