Ringo Starr's number is up in new 'Powerpuff Girls' special -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO


Ringo Starr may be teaming up with Paul McCartney to perform at the Grammy Awards and accept the 2014 Recording Academy Lifetime Achievement Award for the Beatles on Jan. 26, but first he’s in need of some major rescuing by the Powerpuff Girls. Or, at least his voice is.

EW announced in December that The Powerpuff Girls would be returning to your TV screen for a new Cartoon Network special, Dance Pantsed, on Jan. 20, and now we have your first exclusive look at Starr’s guest-starring role as Townsville’s flamboyant mathematician, Fibonacci Sequins. Watch the clip below for a sneak peek at Mojo Jojo’s latest scheme to kidnap Sequins: an evil video game (“Dance Pants R-EVILution,” of course) that controls the minds and bodies of its players, namely, the Powerpuff Girls.

'Powerpuff Girls' celebrate 15th anniversary with new special, Ringo Starr

Blossom, Bubbles, and Buttercup are back and ready to rescue the world again, all before bedtime. The Emmy-winning series The Powerpuff Girls is returning for the redesigned and reimagined CG special Dance Pantsed, just after celebrating its 15th anniversary on Cartoon Network.

Perhaps the newest “dash of Chemical X,” the special will feature a guest appearance by the voice of Ringo Starr as Townsville’s flamboyant mathematician, Fibonacci Sequins, who is kidnapped by Mojo Jojo. The trio of heroines is ready to thwart his plan and will all be returning to reprise their roles, with Catherine Carvadini as Blossom, Tara Strong as Bubbles, and E.G. Daily (who was recently competed on The Voice) as Buttercup.

Starr will also be performing the original music video and song “I Wish I Was a Powerpuff Girl” for the Cartoon Network special. (Don’t we all, Ringo. Don’t we all.)

Dance Pantsed premieres in the U.S. on Monday, Jan. 20, at 7:30 p.m. ET/PT on Cartoon Network.
