There’s no denying that college kids always love a good dose of nostalgia in their lives. At this age we can’t get enough of the stuff, with the impending push of the real world drawing near with every consecutive year we finish at Cal. For those who desire it, this week’s dose of awesome childhood nostalgia comes in the form of the announcement of the return of the “Powerpuff Girls!”

Now who doesn’t remember that amazing show from our childhood? Who can forget Blossom, Bubbles and Buttercup? After all, those girls were made with sugar, spice and everything nice. Oh and CHEMICAL X. But the show was definitely a childhood favorite for many. Okay, sure the show was specifically designed to appeal to girls but hey, we boys at the Clog watched it too! It was cool … Y’know, for the fights and stuff.

An exciting announcement was recently made by Cartoon Network, the channel that broadcasted the original series from 1998-2005. According to the press release [2], the series is slated to make a return with all of its old voice cast reprising their roles and “will soar again as a brand-new, redesigned and re-imagined CG special coming in 2013 where the trio of pint-sized super heroines will be called upon to rescue not just the city of Townsville, but the USA and the world!” The special will also oddly feature the Beatles drummer Ringo Starr, who is set to compose the theme song of the special in addition to providing a voice for one of its characters named “Fibonacci Sequins.” Go figure.

The return of the “Powerpuff Girls” definitely sounds exciting just for the sake of the nostalgia that it all brings. However, there is no denying that the golden age of cartoons that we all experienced as children in the mid 90’s to early 2000’s ended a long time ago. But who can refuse the opportunity to watch new material of a much cherished childhood show like the “Powerpuff Girls?” It’s like being ten years old again and waking up to watch Saturday morning cartoons. The experience is just priceless. Regardless, if you’ve got time outside of your busy academic schedule, definitely make sure to watch out for this when it drops. We sure will!
