Hulu has acquired the exclusive streaming rights to animated classic “The Powerpuff Girls.” The multi-year deal includes the entire “The Powerpuff Girls” library, including the newly reimagined and Emmy-nominated series that debuted earlier this year, and all the episodes from the original 1998-2005 series. “Chowder,” another Cartoon Network original, will also be added to Hulu’s kids offering. All episodes and titles from the revival series will stream exclusively on Hulu in early 2017.
To kick off the deal, Hulu launched a collection of “The Powerpuff Girls” specials and fan favorite episodes from the original series. The package, titled Best Friends Forever, includes the “The Powerpuff Girls” 10th anniversary special, as well as a holiday special, and is available to stream now on Hulu Kids.
Created by Craig McCracken, “The Powerpuff Girls” revolves around the adventures of three girls with superpowers: Blossom (pink), Bubbles (blue), and Buttercup (green) who use their powers to defend their town from villains and giant monsters. In addition, the girls have to deal with the normal issues that young children face, such as sibling rivalries, loose teeth, personal hygiene, going to school or dependence on a security blanket.
