Other Cartoon Network Events At SXSW This Week

The Powerpuff Girls reboot pre-premiere party and screening weren’t the only events Cartoon Network arranged at SXSW (South By Southwest Festival) this week, on Thursday 17th March, Cartoon Network hosted a panel at the Austin Convention Center called “Cartoon Network: Disrupting with Post-Its and Pencils”, featuring Ian Jones-Quartey (Animator/Supervising Director for Steven Universe, creator of the Lakewood Plaza Turbo animated short), Julia Pott (Creator of Summer Camp), Kyle Carrozza (Creator of Mighty Magiswords), Pete Browngardt (Creator of Uncle Grandpa) and Rob Sorcher (Global Content Officer for Cartoon Network). The panel humorously explained that the use of pencils and Post-it notes to draw ideas helps with creativity and is influencing the future of storytelling. Cartoon Network is known for its Emmy and Peabody Award-winning formula by putting creators first, encouraging digital collaborations, and having a high level of flexibility in creativity.

SXSW Powerpuff Girls Reboot Party

Last night (14/03/2016) was the pre-premiere party for the Powerpuff Girls reboot at the SXSW (South By Southwest) Music, Film and Interactive festival in Austin, Texas. Needless to say, Cartoon Network made sure that the event didn’t go unnoticed. The event consisted of a parade and giant Powerpuff Girls shaped balloons, as well as three different tents, Blossom’s Supersnacks (served sweet treats for guests), Buttercup’s Powerdome (features interactive games) as well as Bubbles’ Boutique stall, and of course The Powerpuff Girls themselves. This all happened before the main event, the world premiere screening of the new series of The Powerpuff Girls on an outdoor cinema screen.

It's the final countdown! #PPG
