What would you look like if you were made of sugar, spice, everything nice and the mysterious chemical X? Today, you can find out.
Ahead of the Powerpuff Girls reboot premiering Monday (6 p.m. ET/PT), Cartoon Network launched the “Powerpuff Yourself” website (www.PowerpuffYourself.com), which lets users to create a pint-sized superhero in their own likeness: Pick skin tone, hairstyle, eye color, outfits, accessories and even animated backgrounds. The characters can become static images, desktop wallpaper and GIFs.
“Early on, brainstorming, we wanted to give kids the opportunities to remix the Powerpuff Girls in their own ways,” says Jill King, Senior VP of Marketing for Cartoon Network. “The team worked around the clock to create tons of different options and be super inclusive.”
So you can create a nonwhite Powerpuff, a bearded Powerpuff and even a catsuit-wearing Powerpuff.
“We have little Easter Eggs in there, too,” says King, including hats inspired by Cartoon Network shows We Bare Bears and Adventure Time. “There are nods to other contemporary things relevant in kids’ lives.”
