“Just like Blossom, Bubbles, and Buttercup, kids have a special ingredient which makes them heroes. This new campaign has a message of positivity, individuality, and confidence.”

To expand on the campaign, Cartoon Network has partnered with Amy Poehler’s Smart Girls to create a mini documentary series that encourages kids to embrace their uniqueness and to make a positive impact on the world. The first episode of What’s Your Powfactor? has already been uploaded on to the Smart Girls YouTube channel, the first episode is about Christina Li, a high school student and a White House Champion of Change for Computer Science Education.

Meredith Walker, a co-founder of Amy Poehler’s Smart Girls also commented on the new initiative:

“Powfactor demonstrates the power that all smart girls (and guys) have when they embrace their individuality to make a difference in their community”

Kids will be able to express their “Powfactor” via the CN Sayin’ app, an app where kids can record themselves for a chance to appear on Cartoon Network USA.

As a reminder, Cartoon Network USA will be airing new episodes of The Powerpuff Girls every weekday all this week (Monday 19th September to Friday 23rd September) at 5.30pm ET/PT.

Toya Delazy Creates Theme Song For Powerpuff Girls For Cartoon Network Africa

Cartoon Network Africa has teamed up with Toya Delazy, a popular South African jazz-electro-hip-pop musician, to create an all-African, localised theme song for the reboot of The Powerpuff Girls. The African version of the theme song will be sung and produced by Delazy, her version will offer an alternate colourful and local interpretation of the U.S and international version produced by Tacocat.

Toya Delazy stated that the whole musical project was her childhood dream as The Powerpuff Girls was one of her favourite shows as a kid:

“When Cartoon Network approached me to localise the new Powerpuff Girls theme song recorded by US indie pop band, Tacocat, I first listened to the original song and I had an instant connection with the lyrics “fighting crime and saving the world before bedtime.” This was one of my childhood dreams growing up in South Africa and I am truly excited to be part of this amazing project.”

The Powerpuff Girls will premiere on Cartoon Network Africa on Saturday 30th April 2016 at 10.55am.
