Powerpuff Girls: Power Pantsed Review

The city of Townsville!

…is very much intact. For now.

Monday night’s Powerpuff Girls special on Cartoon Network was, for many of us, an emotional throwback to the show’s heyday. While the original show aired from 1998-2005, this week’s rebooted special boasted the return of its original voice casting—Cathy Cavadini (Blossom), Tara Strong (Bubbles), and Elizabeth Daily (Buttercup), along with the help of a few other Townsvillians who’ve managed to retain their charm over the years—the Mayor, Professor Utonium, and Miss Bellum, to name a select few.

For all its similarities to the original, though, this week’s re-imagining of the series also offered some interesting updates. Among the more hyped of these changes was the introduction of Townsville’s flamboyant mathematician, Fibonacci Sequins (voiced by Ringo Starr).

The identity and dialogue of Sequins were quintessentially Powerpuff in nature, seamlessly fitting into the Townsville

Cartoon Network Sets Premiere Date for New Powerpuff Girls Special

It’s been nearly a year since we told you that Cartoon Network had announced a “brand-new, redesigned and re-imagined CG” Powerpuff Girls special as part of its 2013 lineup. Well it turns out they were only off on the date by a month, because today Cartoon Network announced that “Dance Pantsed”, the title for The Powerpuff Girls special, has been set for January 20, 2014, and that a five hour marathon of the girls’ previous adventures would air the day before.

“Redesigned and reimagined CG” makes me nervous, but the fact that the original voice actors have returned makes me very very happy. Here are the details, which include seemingly everything but the all-important screenshot; I guess we’ll have to keep waiting for those visuals.

Andrea Romano Discusses Casting 'All-Star Superman'

  • Comicmix
To vocally craft the characters within the DC Universe Animated Original Movies, the production brain trust of DC Entertainment, Warner Premiere, Warner Home Video and Warner Bros. Animation is smart enough to employ the best in the business – on both sides of the microphone.

While winners of Oscars, Emmys and Tonys alike provide the voices behind some of the world’s best known comic book characters, it is the super hero of voice directors that guides these unique talents – Andrea Romano.

Arguably the top animation voiceover director in the business today, Romano has been instrumental in orchestrating the vocal tones behind the first 10 Dcu animated films, including the highly anticipated February 22 release of All-Star Superman.

The eight-time Emmy® Award winner (not to mention 30+ Emmy nominations) has a voiceover casting/direction resume that spans more than a quarter century, covering the genre gamut from action (Batman: The Animated Series) and humor
