Kid Cosmic's First Trailer Is An Animated Take On Why Saving The World Is Hard

Powerpuff Girls creator Craig McCracken's new series will debut February 2 on Netflix.


Netflix has released an official trailer for Kid Cosmic, the upcoming new animated series from Powerpuff Girls creator Craig McCracken. The series' first season will be premiering on the streaming service February 2.

According to an official synopsis, the show "follows the adventures of an imaginative and enthusiastic boy" who is able to achieve his dream of becoming an intergalactic hero after discovering five cosmic stones in a wrecked spaceship--but he learns that "his fantasy of being a hero is very different from the reality of what it actually means to become one." Check out the trailer below.

Season 1 will run 10 episodes, and has a voice cast that includes Tom Kenny (SpongeBob SquarePants), Fred Tatasciore (American Dad!), Amanda C. Miller (Sailor Moon Crystal), and Keith Ferguson (Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends). The episodes will span 22 minutes each.

Meanwhile, an updated version of McCracken's iconic series the Powerpuff Girls is still in the works. The series made a rebooted return in 2016, and this newer live-action version being developed by The CW sounds interesting--whereas the animated series focused on a team of very young superhero crimefighters, this upcoming one will feature the Powerpuff Girl as "disillusioned twentysomethings who resent having lost their childhood to crime fighting," and who must reunite to help save the world.
