Powerpuff Girls sound different, kick ass in new clip

It's a bit of a change

The Powerpuff Girls are back and they don't want to be called "princess."

Cartoon Network revealed the first clip for the new series today, finally giving audiences their first inclination as to what the characters would sound like with new voice actors.

In the video, Blossom, Buttercup and Bubbles, the three young superheroes the show is based on, are going head-to-head with a "manly" villain that wants to destroy a "hippie carnival." When Buttercup approaches the woodsy-looking baddie and challenges him to a fight, he laughs at her, tells her to go play with some dolls and calls her princess.

"Princess? Did you just call me princess?" Buttercup asks. "Don't call me princess!"

Always the most fiery of all the Powerpuff Girls, Buttercup then proceeds to prove just how much she hates being called princess, punching and kicking her way to victory.

Cartoon Network announced that it would be bringing back the popular series in 2014. Although the show would be based on The Powerpuff Girls series that ran on the same network from 1998-2005, creator Craig McCracken wouldn't be involved with the project.

McCracken's original Powerpuff Girls still holds the record for having the biggest debut on the Cartoon Network when it premiered Nov. 18, 1998.

The new Powerpuff Girls will premiere this April.
