With a robust consumer products program available at retail, lead by toys, publishing, apparel, DVDs and more, new episodes of the top-rated series debut on Cartoon Network on Mondays at 7:00 p.m. (ET/PT).
One of Cartoon Network’s most iconic and beloved series, The Powerpuff Girls was created by Craig McCracken and made its broadcast debut on Cartoon Network in 1998.
