‘Powerpuff Girls’ Battle Sexism in Clip From Rebooted Cartoon Show (Video)

Show returns to Cartoon Network in April

“The Powerpuff Girls” are back and taking girl power to a whole new level.

Cartoon Network released a clip from the upcoming reboot of the classic cartoon series, in which the girls square off against Manboy, a villain who has vowed to turn the city of Townsville into the city of Mansville, a place where men are men and boys are men.

Buttercup isn’t having any of that and challenges Manboy to a fight. When he laughs her off, he condescendingly refers to her as “princess.”

Big mistake.

The relaunch of “The Powerpuff Girls” is set to premiere in April on Cartoon Network.

Watch Buttercup pummel a misogynist in the video above.
