Ringo Starr will sing an original song for his upcoming appearance with “The Powerpuff Girls” that was first revealed in November, and will appear as one of the animated characters in the story, the network announced Tuesday.
“The Powerpuff Girls Special: “Sugar, Spice and Everything Nice … Plus a Dash of Mysterious Chemical X,” is the title of the new, redesigned and re-imagined CG special, the network said. “The trio of pint-sized super heroines will be called upon to rescue not just the city of Townsville, but the USA and the world!,” according to a description. The special will feature the original voice cast reprising their roles from the series.
Ringo's contributions will include portraying what the network described as Townsville’s most famous flamboyant mathematician named Fibonacci Sequins and singing an original song, “I Wish I Was A Powerpuff Girl.”
When he first revealed his plans to appear in the special, he said, ““It's gonna be great next year. I'm going to be animated.”
The Emmy®-winning series ran on Cartoon Network from 1998-2005.
