The Powerpuff Girls has always featured a classic trio, but on September 17th, a fourth member will be added to the mix! Though we don’t know the fourth Powerpuff Girl’s name, we do know she is black, rocks the color purple, and is voiced by lesbian South African singer Toya Delazy.
Jamie Ondarza, Senior Vice President at Turner Broadcasting in Southern Europe and Africa, said: “Toya is definitely a perfect fit as the fourth Powerpuff Girl. She is confident, bubbly and quirky, all the values that we are familiar with, love and appreciate. We have a lot of surprises up our sleeves.”
Delazy is just as excited for this new role as apparent by her Twitter post.

Congrats to Delazy and to Cartoon Network for diversifying their content and their actors. We can’t wait to see this new and improved show!
