"Fighting crime, trying to save the world, here they come just in time…"
If you sang the above in The Powerpuff Girls theme song way, as opposed to reading it, then firstly, you’re a legend, and secondly, you’re going to thank us for the video you’re about to see.
The Cartoon Network producers of the iconic animated TV show celebrated the on-air return of The Powerpuff Girls in a very special way.
The three beloved super girls of the show - Blossom, Bubbles and Buttercup – are reincarnated as drones and take over the skies of Dubai over the weekend.
Even though the show hasn’t been on-air for over a decade, the powerful trio are still close to Dubaians’ hearts.
This is definitely a video worth listening to while you watch, so dig out your headphones from your bag or go somewhere quiet!
“I remember the Powerpuff Girls as three little super powerful, superhero girls,” said one resident in the video, while another spoke about how she used to watch the show 15 years ago and “loved every bit of it”.
In the video, the sugar, spice and chemical-powered girls are seen flying across some of Dubai’s most iconic landmarks including Burj Al Arab, Jumeirah Beach Residences, Kite Beach and Burj Khalifa.
Cartoon Network is bringing back the Townsville crime stoppers to TV this year, with a full licensing programme that will roll out across all regions. The show premiered in 1998 and was created by Craig McCracken.
The original TV show became a phenomenon for Cartoon Network in the ’90s, and even won two Emmy awards during its 78-episode run.
