PROGRESSIVE MOVES: Cartoon Network Teases a FOURTH Powerpuff Girl…And She’s BLACK!
07.09.17

If like me, you grew up a fan of the original Powerpuff Girls in the ’90s, you’ll be excited to learn that there’s soon going to be a fourth Powerpuff Girl added to the mix…and get this, she’s voiced by a black woman! Cartoon Network announced the exciting news on Twitter, revealing that a first look of the new character will debut on Sept. 17 at 5:30 p.m. Shortly after, South African singer Toya Delazy confirmed that she’s voicing the new character, writing, “AND JUST LIKE THAT, I BECAME A POWERPUFF GIRL!”

Another Twitter user uploaded a photo of what may or may not be our first look the fourth Powerpuff Girl, and while it’s unconfirmed, the new character definitely looks promising. As an African-American who enjoyed watching the Powerpuff Girls as a kid, it’s definitely inspiring to see the Cartoon Network include diversity among one of its most beloved cartoon series. Sept. 17 can’t come quickly enough!
