Cartoon Network Africa will be having a special Powerpuff Girls weekend, airing from 10.40am CAT on Saturday 28th January and 4.30pm CAT on Sunday 29th January on DStv channel 301. The two day stunt that’s filled with Sugar, Spice and everything nice will feature brand new episodes highlighting the special abilities of the three Powerpuff Girls – Blossom, Bubbles and Buttercup. The special weekend follows on from the launch of Cartoon Network’s Powfactor campaign which has gone global since its launch last year.

Cartoon Network updated the Powerpuff Yourself avatar maker last November to include a Powfactor personality quiz along with additional avatar customisation features. People who complete the Powfactor quiz can find out their “secret ingredient” which makes them heroic and unique. Since its launch last April, the Powerpuff Yourself avatar maker has been a success on social media with a total of over 12 million Powerpuff-style avatars created.

Cartoon Network has also launched a brand new Powerpuff Girls YouTube channel which features video clips, comedy moments, music, games and exclusive content. The Powerpuff Girls YouTube channel can be accessed via the link below.
