As every child of the 90s will relate, Cartoon Network was the channel for us. The original platform has nothing on today’s cartoons (or at least, we think so).
We believe it will be a joy for today’s children to watch The Powerpuff Girls and Foster’s Home for Imaginary Friends, two of the series that are getting reboots.
The Hollywood Reporter claims that Hanna-Barbera Studios Europe is working on the reboot alongside Craig McCracken, the show’s originator. In 1992, he started working at Hanna-Barbera Cartoons. He is renewing the two cartoons thirty years later.
Sam Register, president of Cartoon Network Studios, Warner Bros Animation, and Hanna-Barbera Studios Europe, stated in a statement that Craig’s return to Hanna-Barbera was a chance that could not be missed.
“The Powerpuff Girls and Foster’s Home for Imaginary Friends, two of his finest works, are coming with him along with his unmatched sense of humor and inventiveness, and we are so pleased for these characters to be a part of the new history-taking shape at the studio.”
The forthcoming relaunch will look similar to the first one. Blossom, Bubbles, and Buttercup, three superheroes who attend school during the day and save the world at night, will be the center of attention as they attempt to get home in time for bed.
New characters will, however, be appearing in Foster’s Home for Imaginary Friends. More young imaginary pals that are just as fun as Bloo, Eduardo, and the rest of the original group will be introduced in the recast preschool series.
