Fifteen Celebrities To Voice Fourth Powerpuff Girl In Europe, Middle East, Africa And Australia

Last night (17/09/2017), Cartoon Network USA aired the five-part Powerpuff Girls movie special – Power Of Four, the special introduced the fourth Powerpuff Girl – Bliss (Full name: Blisstina Francesca Francia Mariam Alicia Utonium), who actually was created by Professor Utonium years before the super-powered trio we know and love. Bliss was emotionally unstable, with the fear and shame of using her powers for destructive purposes, she moved to a deserted island far away and now she’s ready to return.

As correctly analysed and stated by this blog based on the evidence available at the time, South African musician – Toya Delazy will only be voicing Bliss in the African version of the special. The Power of Four special will air on Cartoon Network Africa on Saturday 21st October at 7.05am CAT. In the USA version, Olivia Olson (better known as the voice for Marceline in Adventure Time) voiced Bliss.

The role of the fourth Powerpuff Girl will be portrayed by fifteen different celebrities in Europe, Middle East and Africa and also Australia and New Zealand. Cartoon Network Australia (which also includes New Zealand) has already announced that the character will be played by the Australian YouTuber – Wengie (real name Wendy Ayche). In Australia and New Zealand, the special will also premiere on Cartoon Network Australia between Saturday 23rd – Sunday 24th September at 10am. The special will also air on Cartoon Network India and Cartoon Network Pakistan this Saturday (23/09/2017).

UPDATE: The special will also air on Cartoon Network Southeast Asia this weekend, three episodes will premiere on Saturday at 11.30am and two more on Sunday also at 11.30am.

In a statement regarding the several different voice actresses for the fourth Powerpuff Girl, Cartoon Network said:

“Cartoon Network has joined forces with 15 super-powered celebrities across Europe, the Middle East, Africa and Australia who will each lend their voice to the newly revealed 4th Powerpuff Girl. The first local celebrities to be named as the voice of this mysterious fourth Powerpuff Girl are South Africa’s hip-hop sensation Toya Delazy, who will star as the character across Africa, and Australian YouTuber Wengie, who has voiced the character for Australia and New Zealand.”

Lesley Bailey, the vice president for channel marketing and brand management for Cartoon Network EMEA also added:

“This activation is the perfect way to continue building brand awareness and affinity, not only with girls and kids, but with millennial women and mums too. We’re excited to be revealing the first in a long list of amazing and inspiring women to be taking on this kick-ass new role.”

Toya Delazy Voices Fourth Powerpuff Girl In African Version Of The Powerpuff Girls

Toya Delazy Voices Fourth Powerpuff Girl In African Version Of The Powerpuff Girls

Today (07/09/2017), it was announced that South African singer, pianist, dancer and performer – Toya Delazy has been announced as the voice of the fourth Powerpuff Girl in the sub-Saharan African version of The Powerpuff Girls. The five-part TV special which will feature the new character – “Power Of Four” will air on Cartoon Network Africa on Saturday 21st October at 7.05am CAT. According to unclear sources such as Channel24 and TV With Thinus, it implies that Toya will be voicing the fourth character in the international English version rather than just Africa however this seems unlikely because:

1. No press outside South Africa has reported that Toya will be voicing the fourth Powerpuff Girl.

2. The statement by Jaime Ondarza – The Senior Vice President of Turner Southern Europe and Africa says that we will find out more in October, the five part special airs in the United States next Sunday (17th September), obviously we will find out more about the new Powerpuff Girl before then.

3. No official statement from Cartoon Network USA or from another English-language version (UK, Australia etc.) of Cartoon Network.

4. Toya Delazy sung and produced the African Powerpuff Girls theme song, the theme is exclusive to Africa, this could be the same for the voice of the fourth Powerpuff Girl too, it’s been known before in English language dubs, an example is Jane Horrocks voicing the role of Queen Eleanor (instead of Wendi McLendon-Covey) in the UK variant of Long Live The Royals. Australia also has their own version of The Powerpuff Girls theme song too.

Also, I want to make a point about the new Powerpuff Girl, I’m fully aware about a certain leak circulating around on the internet months ago, but I won’t publish anything until Cartoon Network themselves has made an announcement.
