To celebrate the end of production for one of Cartoon Network’s biggest shows over the past decade – Adventure Time, Cartoon Network threw a huge Wrap Party at the Boulevard3 Night Club on Sunset Boulevard in Los Angeles last night (16/11/2017). The party was a gathering of the voice acting cast and crew from the show and they were united together in celebration for one final time. The whole event was themed on the show, including a replica of Finn and Jake’s treehouse featuring a DJ stage, cocktails inspired by the characters from the show, food based on dishes featured in the show including bacon pancakes, burritos, candy and there was a live band too.

Created by Pendleton Ward and co-produced by Cartoon Network Studios and Frederator Studios – Adventure Time was the one show that kickstarted, influenced and led the television animation renaissance during the past seven years. Loved by kids and adults, the show soon became Cartoon Network’s hottest property with high viewing ratings and winning several Creative Arts Emmys. The show had a plethora of merchandise ranging from T-shirts to soft toys. Globally, the show had mass appeal due to the show’s storytelling which had a lot of potential, its colourful and cute aesthetic, a large cast of memorable characters, its expansive environment, and its mix of comedy and action. For the show’s production crew it may of ended, but for its audience it hasn’t, Finn and Jake’s adventures will continue with new episodes in 2018, there’s still plenty to do in the Land of Ooo, whether it’s protecting Candy Kingdom or solving the mysteries of Ooo.

Bliss soon finds out that she has three younger sisters that shares the same personality traits as her and she’s also made of sugar, spice and everything nice, but there’s only one slight difference that separates her from her sisters. Finally united as a team, Blossom, Bubbles, Buttercup and Bliss will work together and save the day before bedtime.

From The Turner UK Press Release: Alesha Dixon Joins Forces with Cartoon Network UK for “The Powerpuff Girls: Power of Four”: Cartoon Network’s five-part special premieres Sunday 29th October at 3.30pm on Cartoon Network.

There’s a new Powerpuff Girl in town, and she’s got the POWER! Britain’s Got Talent judge Alesha Dixon will voice Bliss, the fourth Powerpuff Girl for Cartoon Network UK in the five-part special event, The Powerpuff Girls: Power of Four. Bliss is the long-lost teenage sister to Blossom, Bubbles, and Buttercup, who has returned to Townsville to learn the true strength of her incredible powers.

Commenting on her role as Bliss, Alesha Dixon said: I’m so excited to be voicing the all-new fourth Powerpuff Girl who makes an epic entrance into The Powerpuff Girls series on Cartoon Network. We need more kick-ass equality on-screen and The Powerpuff Girls were the original ambassadors of girl power for me. My character Bliss is the older sister to the Powerpuff Girls who struggles to control her superhero strength. I think Bliss and I have a lot of similarities, and I can’t wait for the audience to get to know her.”

The Powerpuff Girls: Power of Four is a five-part special. Long before he created Blossom, Bubbles and Buttercup, Professor Utonium created a little girl named Bliss who embodied all of the same traits: she was smart, sweet and incredibly powerful. After a mysterious disappearance, she hasn’t been seen by anyone for years. Now, as a teenager, Bliss has returned to discover she has three incredible superhero sisters! Stronger together and reunited as a family at last, the four Powerpuff Girls work together and use their powers to save the day—before bedtime.
