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.

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.
