Well, it only took a year from when it was first announced, but the new Powerpuff Girls special finally has an air date: January 20th at 7:30PM on Cartoon Network. Titled "Dance Pantsed," the special features computer animation (damn you, technology!) and a musical guest appearance from Ringo Starr, the least talented Beatle (which still makes him way more talented than you). The special is the first new Powerpuff Girls animation since the tenth anniversary special a few years ago. Here's the synopsis:
In Dance Pantsed, why is Mojo Jojo kidnapping a mathematician, an opera singer and a badger? To steal Chemical X, of course, and to finally take over Townsville. But when the Powerpuff Girls thwart his plan, he invents an evil video game called “Dance Pants R-EVILution” to control their minds and bodies to fulfill his evil plot! The Professor must visit his dark dancing past to save his girls so they can save all of Townsville!
It's good that they're sticking to topical material like a Dance Dance Revolution parody. Dave Smith will direct and the original cast will reprise their roles. Series creator Craig McCracken reportedly had no input on the special, and neither did Pony mogul Lauren Faust.
