Our childhoods are calling, and this boost of nostalgia news is exactly what we need on a Monday. Creator Craig McCracken and Hanna-Barbera Studios are back together and bringing us a reboot for Powerpuff Girls and Foster’s Home for Imaginary Friends. The original series were both created for Cartoon Network and have taken the world by storm. Even if you didn’t watch either of these series when they aired, chances are you know about them.

The original Powerpuff Girls was released in 1998 with six seasons, a movie and quite a few TV specials. The superpowered sisters, Blossom, Bubbles and Buttercup, are household names and have found themselves transported to other series as well. The series was rebooted in 2016, lasted for three seasons, and introduced the fourth sister Bliss. There has even been talk of a live-action series that would have starred Dove Cameron as Bubbles, Chloe Bennet as Blossom and Yana Perrault as Buttercup.

However, after viewing the pilot, the CW felt it was too campy. That doesn’t mean that we won’t be seeing one in the future, but at least we have Craig McCracken’s reboot to look forward to. He shared that the reboot will give us a look at what we know while also expanding on the world of the original series. This means more of the sisters, more Professor X and more of our favorite villains.

The other series making a return is Foster’s Home for Imaginary Friends. This one was initially released on Cartoon Network in 2004. It introduced us to Madame Foster and her home for the imaginary friends of kids who are too old to have them. Their silly antics and the outrageous situations they found themselves in had us laughing for hours. McCracken shared that the reboot for this series is going to be different.

Instead of reintroducing us to Bloo, Wilt and the other imaginary friends living at Madame Foster’s, we are getting an entirely new crop of preschool-age friends. This makes total sense since this reboot will be aimed more toward preschool viewers. They promise it will keep its charm from the original series, which gives us hope that we, as adults, will enjoy it just as much as our preschoolers.

We don’t have any exacts on when the series will be hitting TV, but we can’t wait to see the reboots for Craig McKracken’s Powerpuff Girls and Foster’s Home for Imaginary Friends! Are you excited to see their return? Let us know in the comments below and on social media!
