Cartoon Network Africa’s April Fool’s Prank: The Biggest Event In The Universe

Cartoon Network Africa’s viewers were pranked on April Fool’s Day (01/04/2017) with a series of overly dramatic bumpers and promos for a fake television event entitled “The Biggest Event In The Universe”, viewers were expected to see something awesome and incredible at 11.45am, but instead, a clip of Gumball slamming a window on Darwin repeatedly for thirty seconds was aired. Cartoon Network Africa also pranked its viewers with a series of funny next bumpers.

Cartoon Network UK’s New Easter Idents

Cartoon Network UK is now airing a new series of nice looking idents for Easter 2017, the idents feature characters from Adventure Time, The Amazing World of Gumball, Ben 10, Uncle Grandpa, Teen Titans Go! and The Powerpuff Girls in a multicoloured moving grid among some patterned Easter eggs. People have commented that the presentation in the idents looks similar to Cartoon Network USA’s current Dimensional branding and is an indicator of a possible rebrand but Cartoon Network UK’s current Check It 4.0. look isn’t even a year old yet.

However, Cartoon Network Italy, Cartoon Network Portugal, Cartoon Network France and Cartoon Network Turkey has already started to air a few elements from the Dimensional graphics package. Versions of Cartoon Network outside the United States tend to have their own identity and creative ideas, often building upon Cartoon Network USA’s presentation.

The Powerpuff Girls Art Factory Exhibit Launch Night In South Africa

Thursday this week (06/04/2017) was the opening night for The Powerpuff Girls Art Factory Exhibit at 91 Loop in Cape Town, South Africa. The Powerpuff Girls art exhibition was organised by Cartoon Network Africa and Cape Town’s First Thursdays cultural experience. The art exhibition features unique Powerpuff Girls screen-prints by ten of South Africa’s best artists and illustrators; artists include Tandiwe Tsabala, Ello Xray Eyez, Quondile Dlamini, Jade Klara, Tyla Mason, Ndumiso Nyoni, Karabo Poppy Moletsane, Anja Nanna Venter, Kgabo Mametja and Jeanne Fourie. The exhibit is now open to the public at 91 Loop in Cape Town until Tuesday 2nd May 2017. The artwork at the event celebrates creativity, expression, empowerment and fun, which are traits The Powerpuff Girls are often associated with.

Proceeds from artwork sales will be donated to Rock Girl – a local girl-led NGO (Non-Government Organisation) grassroots movement that advocates woman’s rights and also aims to reduce violence against woman and girls. Just like the Powerpuff Girls, the organisation’s volunteers are empowered to tackle the challenges in their lives. Rock Girl’s “Safe Spaces” public art and education initiative creates symbolic safe spaces in the form of specially designed benches in partnership with artists, designers and companies. Rock Girl unveiled their latest safe space bench at the opening night at the exhibition, the bench features a Powerpuff Girls themed design by mosaic artist Lovell Friedman. After the art exhibition, the bench will be relocated to the Victoria & Alfred Waterfront in the city.

Rock Girl’s latest safe space bench in collaboration with Cartoon Network, featuring a specially designed Powerpuff Girls mosaic.

At opening night, visitors were greeted by The Powerpuff Girls and singer Toya Delazy did a live performance of the African version of the Powerpuff Girls theme song as well as a few of her own songs. Visitors also got to enjoy tasty treats and had the opportunity to create their very own custom-designed Powerpuff Girl tote bag at the screen-printing bar.
