Cartoon Network and Scratch Give Plurals The Tools To Become The Next Generation of Creators

The Powerpuff Girls Coding Episode Premieres Thursday, June 9, 6:30p.m. (ET/PT)

Video Tutorials Featuring Characters from Popular Animated Series Live on Scratch

As part of their ongoing commitment to inspire the next generation of young creators, Cartoon Network is deepening its collaboration with Scratch and debuting the first of two coding-themed episodes from the global hit series, The Powerpuff Girls, along with the introduction of "Make It Fly," a tutorial that shows young people how to create interactive animations and games using the Scratch global coding platform. The series, premiering Thursday, June 9, at 6:30 p.m. (ET/PT),joins We Bare Bears as the second Cartoon Network intellectual property uploaded to the Scratch website to encourage children to create and share.

In "Viral Spiral," the first of two computer science-themed episodes of The Powerpuff Girls, Bubbles uses her coding skills to help save the internet. Kids can develop their problem solving and creative skills by visiting the free Scratch coding platform and using the new tutorial to make animations, stories and games starring Bubbles, Blossom and Buttercup.

"The Powerpuff Girls is an iconic brand with characters recognized by kids all over the world," said Christina Miller, President and General Manager of Cartoon Network, Adult Swim and Boomerang. "Our ongoing collaboration with Scratch continues to be a way for us to focus on the importance of converging technology and media to give kids tools that can result in a life-long love for creating."

"By teaming up with Cartoon Network and The Powerpuff Girls, we're able to introduce Scratch and creative coding to a broader range of kids," said Mitchel Resnick, LEGO Papert Professor of Learning Research and Director of the Scratch Team at the MIT Media Lab. "We've been excited to see the diverse collection of projects that kids are creating with the new Make It Fly tutorial."

Earlier this year, Cartoon Network announced its collaboration with the White House on the Computer Science for All initiative, a movement focused on making coding and other hands-on science, technology, engineering and math learning an integral part of every student's education.

Scratch, a project of the Lifelong Kindergarten Group at the MIT Media Lab, is a free, easy-to-use programming language and online community that encourages kids to create and share their own interactive stories, games and animation projects. The MIT Scratch Team designed the website as a space where kids can express themselves creatively through technology and collaborate with one another. Through the Scratch online community, kids can try out each other's projects, give feedback and suggestions, and even remix and build on one another's projects.The Powerpuff Girls free coding tutorial is available at www.cartoonnetwork.com/Scratch.
