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).
