But now that they’re a fierce quartet, The Powerpuff Girls are unstoppable. Bliss was initially believed to be Bubble’s imaginary friend, but it was revealed that she is, in fact, the girls’ long-lost older sister.
Less than two weeks after shaking up Townsville with news of a fourth Powerpuff Girl, Cartoon Network introduced fans to Bliss on Sunday in the five-part movie event The Powerpuff Girls: The Power of Four.
She often has outbursts and can’t control her powers, perhaps allowing producers to address the idea of puberty and hormones.
Ten years before he accidentally created Blossom, Bubbles, and Buttercup, the Professor says, he’d gone through an entire series of experiments to create the ideal little girl, using sugar, spice, everything nice, and Chemicals A-V. Another time, the girls turned town spoiled rich girl Princess Morbucks from becoming their fourth member, only for her to become one of their primary antagonists.
Cartoon Network give Bliss a heartwarming and official welcome to the family on Twitter with an image featuring the four members of the PowerPuff Girls. While this is an exciting development, it is odd that the only black Powerpuff Girl will perpetually be the odd one out thanks to her troubled backstory and her apparent connection with notorious Powerpuff villain, Mojo Jojo. The series is produced by Cartoon Network Studios. According to Cartoon Network, long before he created Blossom, Bubbles and Buttercup, Professor Utonium created a little girl named Bliss. Even better, a new Powerpuff girl who happens to be none other than South African singer-songwriter Toya Delazy. After a mysterious disappearance, she hasn’t been seen by anyone for years.
The show was rebooted by Cartoon Network in 2016 and saw a few changes, notably the animation style.
Ultimately, Bliss’ “dangerous” nature proved her to be an indispensable part of the family, but she still left town at the end of the episode.
The creation of Bliss is a major step forward for a show that already established its feminist street cred when it premiered in 1998.
The introduction of Bliss is a pretty big deal for a number of reasons.
