And there are more than you might think. The Powerpuff Girls explain to their new friend Robin that the Professor created them in a lab by accident, which prompts Robin to reveal that she came into existence under the same circumstances.

Big Mouth follows a bunch of kids navigating their way through puberty. From wet dreams to periods, to drugs — no topic is safe from getting the hilariously cringey Big Mouth treatment. If you watch it you'll be laughing your head off while thanking your stars that puberty is a thing of the past for you. This might not sound like your typical cartoon, but if you like satire and have a dark sense of humour, this is perfect for you. Buttercup, Bubbles, and Blossom are the most relatable superheroes you'll ever see, and if you were a '90s kid, you'll love all the jokes that went over your head back then. The adventures of Morty and his scientist granddad Rick will keep you hooked and wanting to watch all three seasons in one go.
