The Powerpuff Girls are making a comeback. At 7:30 PM on January 20, 2013, the epic female cartoon superheroes, created by Craig McCracken, begin appearing in brand new episodes on Cartoon Network. In a strange twist, Ringo Starr appears as a character in the episode, and has even created a special song in honor of the three synthetic sisters (if you hadn’t heard, they were created in a lab and given superpowers by the accidental inclusion of “Chemical X”). Starr plays an eccentric mathematician named Fibonacci Sequins.
We have no idea how Ringo Starr became involved in this fresh new take on these fan favorites, and after seeing this video we don’t really much care. It’s silly, it’s goofy, Ringo appears in drag, and it’s just so charming you’ll want to watch it over and over.
