Last month we got our first look at the new version of the Powerpuff Girls animated series that will return in celebration of their 15th anniversary in CGI animation (as opposed to the original 2D animation that we know and love). Today we get to check out a just-released music video for the show titled I Wish I Was a Powerpuff Girl by former Beatles member Ringo Starr. As you may recall, we learned last month that Ringo will appear in this new Powerpuff Girls episode so it only makes sense that he would appear in the first music video for the ep. Click below and check out the video in full.
The Powerpuff Girls are making a comeback, and that’s something to sing about. Ringo Starr, who guest stars on the Cartoon Network show’s upcoming return episode, also performs a special song in honor of Blossom, Bubbles and Buttercup. TV Guide Magazine has your exclusive first look at “I Wish I Was a Powerpuff Girl”. After almost a decade off the air, a new episode of The Powerpuff Girls will air on Monday, Jan. 20 (7:30/6:30c), featuring a new CGI-look for the trio of superheroes created from “sugar, spice and everything nice, plus a dash of mysterious Chemical X.” In “Dance Pantsed,” Starr plays Fibonacci Sequins, a flamboyant mathematician who is kidnapped by the PPG’s nemesis, Mojo Jojo.
OK … I have to admit that I love this song. It’s cute, damit. I guess I should also admit that I don’t hate the CGI animation that is employed in this cute little video. The purist in me is still not totally thrilled with the idea of animating Blossom, Bubbles and Buttercup with CGI animation but I guess I can understand the desire to update the cartoon for a new generation of viewers. This music video is a nice introduction to the return of the Powerpuff Girls so, yeah, I guess I’m more excited for this new episode than I thought I was. I shall tune in on January 20 to check out the Powerpuffs, will you? As for Ringo’s song, do you like it? I mean, it’s cute, right?
