Sugar, spice, and everything nice: re-designed Powerpuff Girls to return on Cartoon Network

We've got good news and bad news. The Cartoon Network has just announced that everyone's favorite bug-eyed crime fighters, the Powerpuff Girls will return to television. But sadly the animated superhero shows Young Justice and Green Lantern: The Animated Series, will not.

Earlier today Cartoon Network released their new roster of shows, Young Justice and Green Lantern: The Animated Series were absent. Newsarama got the double confirmation that both series end with their current seasons. Sad.

On a better note, the Powerpuff Girls WILL be returning in a whole new CG-animated special. Here's the run-down from the press release:

The Powerpuff Girls Special: "Sugar, Spice and Everything a dash of mysterious Chemical X" were the essential ingredients that created Blossom, Bubbles and Buttercup-also known as The Powerpuff Girls. This groundbreaking and Emmy®-winning series, created by Craig McCracken, ran on Cartoon Network from 1998-2005 and will soar again as a brand-new, redesigned and re-imagined CG special coming in 2013 where the trio of pint-sized super heroines will be called upon to rescue not just the city of Townsville, but the USA and the world! Featuring an original song "I Wish I Was A Powerpuff Girl" performed by Beatles legend Ringo Starr, who also portrays Townsville's most famous flamboyant mathematician, "Fibonacci Sequins," this all-new original special comes from a powerhouse creative team featuring animation talent from around the globe including acclaimed director Dave Smith and award-winning art director Kevin Dart and is produced by Cartoon Network Studios in association with UK's Passion Pictures. The special also features the original voice cast reprising their iconic roles and will premiere later this year.

Which one was your favorite? I'm partial to Bubbles and Buttercup :)  Also, how fitting that they got Ringo since they did that episode that heavily referenced The Beatles.
