The Powerpuff Girls, one of Cartoon Network’s first breakout original programs during its run from 1998-2005, returns for an all-new CGI special on January 20—albeit without the involvement of creator Craig McCracken, who has moved onto Disney’s Wander Over Yonder. In it, former Beatles drummer Ringo Starr voices Fibonacci Sequins, a “flamboyant mathematician” who's kidnapped by Powerpuff Girls arch-nemesis Mojo Jojo. To promote the episode, Starr recorded a minute-long novelty song entitled “I Wish I Was A Powerpuff Girl.” And that song now has a video, featuring an animated Ringo Starr—wearing a yellow Powerpuff-style dress with a pink bow in his hair—accompanied by Blossom on keys, Bubbles on bass, and Buttercup on lead guitar. It offers a glimpse at the new animation style that will be used for the special, as a well as a glimpse of Ringo Starr being really weird.
