Powerpuff Girls get an African connection

South African entertainer and musician Toya Delazy will voice a new Powerpuff Girl for Cartoon Network Africa when the five-part special premieres in October.
Delazy will voice Bliss, the fourth Powerpuff Girl in Cartoon Network Africa’s special The Powerpuff Girls: Power of Four. Bliss is the “long-lost teenage sister” to Blossom, Bubbles, and Buttercup, who has returned to Townsville to learn the true strength of her incredible powers. 

The all-new five-episode Powerpuff Girl special will premiere at the DStv Delicious International Food & Music Festival on Saturday, 7 October in the Cartoon Network screening area located in the fun-filled Kids Zone.

Commenting on her role as Bliss for the African Continent, Delazy says, “I have always wanted to be a voice-over-artist for a cartoon character, this has been something I have wanted to do ever since I was a child. Never did I think I would be recording a voice over as the new Powerpuff Girl for Cartoon Network Africa though! It is an honour to be associated with the campaign and to represent Cartoon Network on the African continent again.”

The Powerpuff Girls: Power of Four premieres on Saturday, 21 October 2017 @08:00 CAT.

The story goes that long before he created Blossom, Bubbles and Buttercup, Professor Utonium created a little girl named Bliss who embodied all of the same traits: she was smart, sweet and incredibly powerful. After a mysterious disappearance, she hasn't been seen by anyone for years. Now, as a teenager, Bliss has returned to discover she has three incredible superhero sisters! Stronger together and reunited as a family at last, the four Powerpuff Girls work together and use their powers to save the day - before bedtime.

The Powerpuff Girls is produced by Cartoon Network Studios, with Nick Jennings serving as executive producer and Bob Boyle as co-executive producer.
