Reboots of “Powerpuff Girls” and “Foster’s Home for Imaginary Friends” are in development


The creators of two popular Cartoon Network shows are working on new iterations of their programs. Craig McCracken and Hanna-Barbera Studios Europe remade the cartoons.

Hanna-Barbera Studios Europe is working on reboots of Foster’s Home for Imaginary Friends and The Powerpuff Girls. Both shows’ creator, Craig McCracken, is affiliated with them. In 1992, McCracken started working for Hanna-Barbera Cartoons.

The second animated remake of McCracken’s original 1998–2005 series will be The Powerpuff Girls. The first, which aired on Cartoon Network from 2016 to 2019, was produced without his input; McCracken worked at Disney at the time. The CW also created a live-action adaptation of the narrative featuring the three protagonists as young adults, but the show was never picked up for a full season.

The new Powerpuff Girls will center on Blossom, Bubbles, and Buttercup, three superheroes who rotate between attending school, battling crime, dominating at hopscotch, and saving the world before it’s time for bed in the original Powerpuff Girls.

Foster’s Home for Imaginary Friends, meanwhile, will be remade as a preschool series with a new cast of imaginative playmates who are just as naughty as Bloo, Eduardo, and the rest of the original group.

Sam Register, president of Cartoon Network Studios, Warner Bros. Animation, and Hanna-Barbera Studios Europe, stated in a statement that Craig’s return to Hanna-Barbera was a chance that could not be missed. “The Powerpuff Girls and Foster’s Home for Imaginary Friends, two of his finest works, are coming with him along with his unmatched sense of humor and inventiveness, and we are so pleased for these characters to be a part of the new history-taking shape at the studio.”

Both projects will be developed under the direction of Sarah Fell, vice president of original kids and family animation at Hanna-Barbera Studios Europe. The two series will be produced by the London-based company which will have global distribution.
