Michelle Clancy | 10-12-2013
Netflix is bringing content from Cartoon Network and Cartoonito TV to its international line-up, including Powerpuff Girls, LazyTown and Courage the Cowardly Dog.
Members in the UK and Ireland can now enjoy seasons one and two of Powerpuff Girls, revolving around the adventures of Blossom, Buttercup and Bubbles – super-powered kindergartners with a knack for crime-fighting; season one of LazyTown, following uber-healthy superhero Sportacus, sidekick Stephanie and the newly exercise-inspired residents of LazyTown and their fight against the exercise-averse Robbie Rotten; and seasons one and two of Courage the Cowardly Dog, following the easily frightened, Courage, a dog living in a farmhouse with the Bagge family in the fictional town of Nowhere, Kansas.
Other animated series becoming available include Regular Show (seasons one and two), wherein two friends, Mordecai, a blue jay, and Rigby, a raccoon, work as groundskeepers at a park, spending their days trying to avoid doing any real work. Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends (season one) meanwhile follows the adventures of eight-year-old Mac and his imaginary friend Bloo. And Samurai Jack (seasons one and two) follows young Jack, who becomes a samurai to avenge his father's death.
Seasons one and two of Adventure Time, following Finn and his shape-shifting dog Jake, and season three of Powerpuff Girls will follow later in December.
"We are delighted to be bringing these Cartoon Network titles to our members in the UK and Ireland," said Kelly Merryman, vice president of content acquisition at Netflix. "The relatable humour found in these shows are great for 'kids' of all ages. We are very happy to provide a subscription streaming home for these popular animated series."
