Toonful weekend

'Girls' have fun at bow

HOLLYWOOD — Getting a jump on “Men in Black II” in the premiere department, Warner Bros. debuted its counterprogrammed toon “The Powerpuff Girls Movie” Saturday in Century City.

“Powerpuff” creator, writer and helmer Craig McCracken said the pic should stand apart from other kiddie summer fare because of the unique look of the animation. It bows July 3, opposite “MIB2” and “Like Mike.”

There was one noticeable difference in the process of taking the Cartoon Network show to the bigscreen, according to E.G. Daily, who provides the voice of Buttercup.

“There were more executives in the room,” she said. “The fun part was being able to mess with the big ones from the top.”

SAG prexy Melissa Gilbert attended the preem with her kids and said that she needs to blend personality traits of all three of the Powerpuff Girls in her post atop the guild.

“You have to be bossy sometimes, and then loving and then kind-hearted,” she said. “Sometimes you have to be the one that carries around a stuffed bunny. It changes all the time.”

Also on hand were animation director Genndy Tartovsky; thesps Tara Strong, the voice of Bubbles; Catherine Cavadini, who portrays Blossom; and Tom Kane, a.k.a. Professor Utonium. Guests attending with their families included Christine Lahti, Harry Hamlin, Danny Bonaduce and Lisa Renee Foiles from Nickelodeon’s “All That.”
