Earlier this month, Cartoon Network released a teaser on their Facebook page that hinted at a big “The Powerpuff Girls” reveal sometime this month. At that time, Cartoon Network said that a 4th member of “The Powerpuff Girls” will be making her debut in the 5-part movie event, “The Powerpuff Girls: The Power of Four”.
All has finally been revealed!

Her name is Bliss, and she’s the long-lost older sister of Blossom, Bubbles, and Buttercup. And yes, as previously hinted in Cartoon Network’s teaser image, her colour is purple.
According to EW, Professor Utonium created bliss long before he created Bubbles, Blossom, and Buttercup with the same blend of sugar, spice, and everything nice, and superpowers. Her powers include flight, teleportation, telekinesis, and super strength. Why is she being introduced only now? Apparently, Bliss mysteriously disappeared after her creation.
South African singer Toya Delazy will be lending her voice to the character, as well as multiple talents from around the world. One of whom is popular Australian YouTube content creator, Wendy Ayche, otherwise better known as Wengie on YouTube.
Wengie took to her Instagram account about a week ago to announce that she will be voicing Bliss in Australia and New Zealand. In her caption, she wrote, “Literally sooooo excited about this! I’ve been wanting to tell you so badly but cant till now!!! Voicing a character was super challenging but soooo fun at the same time omgg I’m in love!! This is a dream come true that I never knew I had but now am like why wasn’t this ever my dream to begin with!? Thank you so much for this opportunity #wengiecorns we are going to save the world.”
“The Powerpuff Girls: Power of Four” will bring all 4 Powerpuff Girls together to save the city of Townsville from “forces of evil that are bigger than ever”. The 5-part movie event will be getting a global rollout to South Africa, Australia, New Zealand, France, Poland, and more.
Watch Bliss kick butt during the first 3 episodes of the upcoming 5-part movie event, “The Powerpuff Girls: Power of Four”, that will premiere on 23rd September (Saturday) and the final 2 episodes on 24th September (Sunday).
