LeapFrog Enterprises has recently entered into a partnership deal with the global licensing and merchandising arm of Cartoon Network, Cartoon Network Enterprise, in order to bring two extremely popular franchises to LeapFrog’s learning platforms, namely The Powerpuff Girls and The Amazing World of Gumball.
The Amazing World of Gumball is a live-action/2D animation hybrid series that follows the hilarious misadventures of 12-year old Gumball and his family in the bright little town of Elmore. Gumball’s school friends include a T-Rex, a cheerleader peanut and a banana. Then there’s Dad, a 6’4″ pink rabbit who stays at home while Mom works in the rainbow factory.
The PowerPuff Girls, on the other hand, is one of the first few animated shows that put its creator Genndy Tartakovsky, and Cartoon Network itself on the map. It follows the adventures of 3 little super powered girls, who were created by Professor Utonium accidentally when he tried to make the perfect girl using the ingredients sugar, spice, and everything nice, only for his lab assistant, the monkey named Jojo to accidentally add Chemical X to the mix.
Episodes of The Amazing World of Gumball are now available for purchase in the LeapFrog App Center. Episodes of Cartoon Network’s classic series The Powerpuff Girls will be available in early 2013.
