DC Super Hero Girls show coming to Cartoon Network
Batgirl, Supergirl and Wonder Woman are coming to Cartoon Network in 2018.
Based on a series of direct-to-video and YouTube videos, DC Super Hero Girls will continue the franchise begun in 2015, which also includes many toys, books and clothing.
Lauren Faust (My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic) is producing and will create “fresh character designs” for Diana (Wonder Woman), Barbara (Batgirl), Kara (Supergirl) and the rest of the DC crew, according to IGN.com.
Bumblebee, Green Lantern Jessica Cruz, Harley Quinn, Katana and Zatanna are also reported to appear in the Cartoon Network show, which will cover the teens lives as superheroes and students in Metropolis.
Joining Faust on the production crew is Sam Register (Teen Titans Go!) as executive producer. The series will be headed by Warner Bros. Animation.
So with Cartoon Network rebooting the Powerpuff Girls this April (oh yeah, THAT won’t date this later), here’s a short list of a few things CN could do along with PPG.
~Bring Back Sym-Bionic Titan
a show that never really deserved to be cancelled (be it for “toy sales” or low rating). Titan was one of the best things that came out of the Dark Era of CN. Hopefully with Samurai Jack coming back then maybe we can get Titan to return…I can dream, can’t I?
~Galactic Kids Next Door
the sequel to the awesome Codename: Kids Next Door series would be great to the line up of old shows becoming new on the channel. Imagine if in the months before the 1st episode they played the original series so as to get today’s kids caught up. I wanna see the remaining members of Sector V take on the Galactic Kids Next Door and their newest recruit: Numbah One of Earth.
~The Life and Times of Juniper Lee
a magical girl show (without the transformation scenes) where an 11-year old girl not only talks smack but will punch monsters many times larger than her. The show ending it’s 3rd season (for the longest time I thought it only had 2) on a kind of cliff-hanger, it’d be nice if we could get some kind of closure (I really want my Dark Ending HeadCanon to be replaced with a happy ending)
Honorable Mention: Green Lantern: The Animated Series/ Young Justice
these are honorable mention because it’s on DC and not CN or WB (well maybe a bit on WB)
Honorable Mention: Cartoon Network Groovies
small music videos using or about certain cartoons that played during the commercials were a welcome change of pace.
Honorable Mention: Whatever Happened To Robot Jones?
a series about a socially awkward robot boy trying to fit in with humans and animated in a “School House Rock” style…yes please.
Honorable Mention (the last): Dententionaire
for a while Cartoon Network was considering Dententionaire (more than likely Johnny Test scared the execs to bring anything else from Canada for a while, DAMN YOU TEST! DAMN YOU!) it is a great mystery conspiracy show that I’m not gonna mention lest I spoil anything.
