Sugar, spice and everything nice: The “Powerpuff Girls” are back.

Cartoon Network released a first look at the new Blossom, Bubbles and Buttercup for the animated series’ 2016 reboot. In addition to revealing images of the animation, the cabler let the new cast introduce themselves in a series of Vines.

Kristen Li will voice Bubbles:

And Natalie Palamides is the brand new Buttercup:

With all the buzz of the new cast, the original triumvirate — Catherine Cavadini (Blossom), Tara Strong (Bubbles) and Elizabeth Daily (Buttercup) — have taken to Twitter to voice their unhappiness with not being asked to return to the reboot. “I don’t remember ordering a stab in the heart today,” Strong tweeted.

The original 1998 series, created by Craig McCracken, ran for 78 episodes, earning two Emmy awards and generating a 2003 feature film.

    You know that your reboot is unwatchable when both Blossom and Bubbles have finally sold their souls to the devil, when the devil in turn is actually Miley Cyrus in disguise.

    No thanks, I’ll just watch the original series on Boomerang.

      Hi,

      I grew up watching many Cartoon Network great classic shows such Powerpuff Girls. I am EXTREMELY UTTERLY DISAPPOINTED that Cartoon Network took the liberty of destroying such a good Cartoon!

      Fire these so called ‘New Cast’ voice over and BRING BACK THE ORIGINAL VOICE OVER ACTOS: TARA STRONG, CATHERINE CAVADANI AND ELIZABETH DAILY!

      We don’t need these new idiots voicing the reboot, WHY THE HECK DIDNT CARTOON NETWORK JUST CALL THE OLD CREW BACK? way to stab them in the back! Idiot CN!

      I hope the new voice actors all die immediately and horribly so that Cartoon Network will be left with no choice but to call TARA STRONG, CATHERINE CAVADANI AND ELIZABETH DAILY!
